Abstract: Collective action increasingly takes place in a multi-level setting where non-governmental organizations (NGOs) no longer only encounter opportunities at the national level, but also at the regional and international level. While scholars are cognizant of these ongoing changes, we still know very little about how the presence of different levels affects the strategies and tactics of non-state actors. This paper will help fill this gap in the literature drawing on various elements from the social movement theory and empirical evidence from women's organizations mobilizing around violence against women and reproductive rights. It shows how NGOs strategically exploit opportunities at both the regional as well as the international level and adjust their framing activities to varying institutional contexts to mobilize broad-based support for their ideas.

A Multi-level Examination of the Effect of Internal Threat Environment on Political Tolerance Levels Across 36 Countries" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-09-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p98909_index.html>

Abstract: Previous studies on political tolerance have succeeded in identifying strong individual-level predictors of tolerant citizens. However, this is an area of research that suffers from a serious lack of cross-national models of political tolerance from a macro-level perspective. This absence is particularly notable in that previous comparative studies have shown substantial variation in tolerance levels across countries, yet almost no effort has been made to understand the causes of this variation beyond the use of individual-level variables. In this paper, I fill this gap by demonstrating the impact of aggregate internal threat levels on political tolerance levels across 36 countries after accounting for other leading predictors of this attitude. Using cross-national survey data from the 1995-1997 World Values Survey and multi-level modeling techniques, I show that high levels of societal threat, such as insurgency, are negatively associated with political tolerance. Specifically, I find that individuals in states dealing with insurgency groups are much less likely to tolerate unpopular groups than those without such exposure. My paper demonstrates that the threat environment of a state reverberates to the domestic level by influencing individuals? decision to tolerate.

Abstract: The literature on public management explores the roles of public managers and their effect on public organizations. Although this research tells us that management matters, it does not consider that governance structures are multilevel with managers at more than one level. Moreover, it does not empirically demonstrate how management affects the organization, simply that it does. Thus, in order to understand the impact of management we need to consider managers at multiple levels and their effect not only on organizational performance but on the organization as well. This paper focuses on the effect of top level and middle managers on street level bureaucrats’ decisions to stay with the organization—a decision that affects organizational performance. Specifically, using a large n-dataset of the most common public organization in the United States—school districts—I show that management at both levels of the organization have a significant effect on teacher turnover and that middle managers have a greater effect than top managers. The results are discussed within the public management literature.
