Abstract: This paper will address the problems with juvenile gang prevention and the initiatives that have been taken to curb this problem. A specific focus will be placed on the Gang Resistance and Education Training (G.R.E.A.T.) program and other approaches taken by law enforcement officials in school-based settings to address juvenile gang involvement and delinquency. Theoretical application is discussed in regard to programming and explanation of delinquent/criminal activities. Specifically, social learning theory and social bonding are covered in the theoretical discussion. The effectiveness of the G.R.E.A.T. program is addressed and how other effective approaches should be incorporated to this programming.

"Soft Drug Initiation and Time to Initiation among Rural Adolescents: Age and Drug-Specific Determinants" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, St. Louis Adam's Mark, St. Louis, Missouri, Nov 12, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-11-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p262130_index.html>

Abstract: This presentation serves as a synopsis of select dissertation research results. Among other things, the study centered on resolving the empirical ambiguity attendant to one major line of inquiry: whether predictors of alcohol, cigarette, and marijuana initiation and time to initiation among adolescents differ in kind by drug type and stage of adolescent development. To address this gap, 22 total sample and age-graded binary logit and Cox regression models were developed. Secondary data were derived from the 2004 Primary Prevention Awareness, Attitude, and Use Survey (PPAAUS), a tri-annual, cross-sectional survey administered to 6th, 9th, and 12th grade students in a rural Pennsylvania school district. Attention will be directed at the major findings and resultant research and prevention implications.

Abstract: The uncertainty over the intentions of other states drives much of the tension and conflict in international relations. While offensive realists contend that this uncertainty is immutable, Bayesian realists, defensive realists, and social-psychologists such as Charles Osgood suggest that states can use conciliatory gestures to reassure rivals of their benign intentions. According to this literature, these gestures should be moderately costly in order to be credible but they should not be too costly for otherwise the initiator risks being exposed and betrayed by the target state. Assuming that survival is not only the primary goal of states but also the quintessential objective of leaders, one would expect to see decision-makers err on the side of caution when they interact with their rivals. Nonetheless, states sometimes choose to signal their intentions through bold gestures, conciliatory acts or statements in which one state makes a significant unilateral concession to its adversary. Why do states employ bold initiatives when they can either do nothing or when smaller, less radical avenues exist to reassure their opponents? Relying on paradigms from the field of psychology, this paper attempts to shed light on this puzzle by examining the series of peace initiatives Egyptian President Anwar Sadat had undertaken from November to December 1977 to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Abstract: Why do multi-stakeholder initiatives created from the same stimulus perform differently when it comes to regulatory outcomes? What account for differences in the design of regulatory institutions, especially those that are voluntary, whose work cut across borders and involve more than a single stakeholder group? Although there is now a considerable body of research investigating institutional design, most studies focus on intergovernmental cooperation and pay little attention to new modes of governance that compete with or work in parallel with intergovernmental institutions. In this paper, I compare the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme and the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative. I find out that the design and the success of the two initiatives differed considerably; the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme being more rigorous and successful compared to the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative. However, in contrast to expectations in the literature on institutional design and international norms, I argue that legitimacy plays a major causal role in the regulatory outcomes of multi-stakeholder initiatives. The use of comparative-historical analysis, especially the method of process-tracing, provides support to my argument that legitimacy explains the variation in the institutional design of the two cases.
