Abstract: The Euro-Atlantic security infrastructures have been constantly evolving to successfully respond to new demands and challenges of the post-Cold War security environment. While the new security context necessitates enhanced dialogue between the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Turkey and Cyprus are increasingly put under criticism for obstructing the coordination between the two organizations. This article suggests that in order to accurately project for the future of the European Security and Defense Policy (ESDP)-NATO relationship, it is essential to analyze the roles of Turkey and Cyprus in it. As such, this article analyzes the Turkish and Cypriot strategic preferences vis-à-vis the evolving transatlantic security infrastructures. It develops the concept of outside veto power, and makes the argument that while Turkey plays the role of an outside veto player in ESDP, Cyprus plays the role of an outside veto player in NATO. The results of this analysis have significant implications on the future of transatlantic security relations. The conclusion discusses these ramifications.

2. Kleinberg, S. Jay. "Teaching American Studies Outside the United States and Outside an American Studies Program or Department" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association, <Not Available>. 2019-12-10 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p103906_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The cumbersome nature of the title of this proposed paper reflects some of the difficulties experienced by Americanists who teach from an American Studies vantage point in departments or programs where they may be the only Americanist and in universities which do not offer American Studies programs. Students will be taking these courses possibly as the only course on the United States they will study. Moreover, such students will probably have little or no academic background in American history, literature, politics, or popular culture. Yet, many of them believe they know American culture because they have seen American television programs or movies. They thus bring a potential set of misconceptions about the United States to their study of a particular aspect of the American experience. It is the job of the lecturer or professor in a particular discipline to help them to contextualize the knowledge they gain about the United States so that the history, literature, or popular culture (the most common areas where courses on the U. S. are offered) become enmeshed in a broader understanding of American society. This means introducing geography, politics, and sociology, as well as the literature, popular culture, history and other disciplines to provide the background that American Studies students acquire as part of their course and which American students acquire in school and from living in the United States.

Because I have taught American Studies and American History in American Studies and History departments in the United Kingdom I am very conscious of the differences A.S. and History students bring to their study of the United States. I find it useful to assign readings from other disciplines in the History courses I teach. These range from introductory surveys and advanced courses on gender, the Great Depression, and women and war to post-graduate and Ph.D. work on social welfare and feminism. My contribution to this workshop examines the ways in which relevant aspects of various disciplines can be incorporated into the historical or other subjects being examined as a means of enhancing students’ awareness of the diversity and complexity of American society. My talk thus focuses on how the use of American Studies’ interdisciplinary methodology broadens and enriches overseas students’ understanding of the United States.

Abstract: Compared with other kinds of race gambling, powerboat racing (kyotei) has a couple of characteristics that set it slightly apart. First, powerboat racing requires skill and tactical acumen more than brute strength, and this makes it a rare example of a sport where women can race against men, and old against young. Kanae Yokonishi, nicknamed “the nation’s strongest single mother” won many races against men while bringing up her daughter following her divorce. Shunji Kato recently retired from racing at the age of 73. The colourful array of contestants appeals to punters who like the open, democratic nature of the contest. Second, every powerboat race has a huge unfair advantage to the boats drawn in the inside lanes. There are six boats in a race, and my research indicates that the No.1 boat (inside track) wins some 40% of the races, while the No.6 boat (outside track) wins only about 4%. Thus this is a contest with very literal insiders and outsiders. The outer boats must go much faster than the inside boats, having a greater distance to travel. They are unlikely to win – but they do have glamor. My research indicates that powerboat gamblers over-back outside boats. Perhaps they identify with them, feeling that they themselves are social outsiders. This paper is based on observations from Heiwajima boat-race stadium in Tokyo; from an off-course betting centre in the slum district of Kotobuki, Yokohama; and institutions supporting compulsive gamblers in Yokohama.

"Beyond "Insiders" and "Outsiders"?: Examining the Evolution of the "Insider-Outsider" Divide in Four European Countries" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SASE Annual Conference, Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, Chicago, IL USA, Jul 10, 2014 <Not Available>. 2019-12-10 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p731837_index.html>

Abstract: European labour markets have long been regarded as being characterized by an ‘insider-outsider’ divide (Crouch, 2012). This division, in which ‘insiders’ enjoy significant employment protection at the expense of poorly protected ‘outsiders’, is adjudged to affect most European countries and has been considered particularly strong in the continent’s south. Recent changes associated with the economic crisis nonetheless necessitate re-examination of the ‘insider-outsider’ divide. Because of drastic reductions in the protection afforded to permanent workers in many European countries, certain commentators have observed that the traditional ‘insider-outsider’ division is eroding. Such developments are highly pertinent to debates about the institutional evolution of European labour markets. Many countries characterized by pronounced ‘insider-outsider’ divides have been considered Coordinated Market Economies (Hall and Soskice, 2001), and the erosion of this divide begs the question of whether such countries are becoming more liberal in orientation.

This paper thus examines the changing nature of the ‘insider-outsider’ divide in France, Poland, Spain and UK. Such countries are characterized by distinct labour market regimes, have ‘insider-outsider’ divides of differing extent, and have been struck to separate degrees by the economic crisis; examining the evolution of the ‘insider-outsider’ divide in these countries thus provides a representative picture of developments across Europe. Analysis is conducted through examination of relevant documentation and secondary literature. Though the study’s findings are provisional as of February 2014, the author’s early impressions are that the ‘insider-outsider’ divide is indeed eroding and European labour markets are showing signs of convergence. Change appears particularly abrupt in Spain; a country in which domestic labour market reforms and interventions from the European public authorities have transformed the country’s labour market. The paper shall conclude with an analysis of its findings’ implications for the institutional evolution of European labour markets.

Abstract: Outside careers subsidize state legislative service, diminishing the opportunity costs of service. I posit that outside careers undermine the hypothesized Democratic electoral bias in professionalized legislatures, as Republicans have less incentive to select out of legislative service given the availability of this subsidy. I hypothesize that legislators generally hold maintaining outside careers as a goal and, in the absence of restrictions, create institutions to facilitate achieving this goal. I provide empirical support for this assertion through new data on outside careers derived from legislator financial disclosure reports. In addition, I hypothesize that the opportunity costs of legislative service are less a function of party than of individual characteristics (sex, race, age) that determine labor market value. The relative dearth of women Republican legislators in high-salary legislatures raises further doubts about partisan bias; Republican men do not appear to opt out of legislative service, despite higher opportunity costs.
