Abstract: Over the last 15 years, small states and NGOs led campaigns that produced international treaties to ban antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions. This process of policy making at the international level is often called “New Diplomacy” and is receiving increased attention from many scholars. Some speculate that this process demonstrates a break with the state monopoly on international negotiations even in the realm of national security. While some states are enthusiastic about this new trend in international diplomacy, others are lukewarm or oppose it. A fundamental question remains unaddressed by scholars of New Diplomacy: why do states become party to treaties sponsored and initiated by non-state actors that may reduce a state’s security? Using statistical methods, this study tests the hypotheses that regime type, military history, social/economic development and other pertinent variables affect a state’s decision to participate in new diplomacy treaties on military issues, specifically anti-personnel landmines and cluster munitions. Such an analysis addresses gaps in the literature that tend to focus on processes leading to a new diplomacy treaty (NDT), rather than the final stage of treaty adoption. In doing so, this study provides insights for understanding New Diplomacy and the roles of small states and NSAs in international governance.

Abstract: Research on music and social movements has focused on music’s role in framing movement issues and encouraging movement participation. Extant work examines music as the “soundtrack to a movement,” but neglects the importance of arts culture as movement in and of itself. Drawing on movements theory, this investigation uses in-depth interviews with 40 key informants to assess current participation in hip-hop culture as part of a valid social movement focusing on a reconception of identity and challenge to dominant ideologies. The importance of race and class in the movement is considered along with the strength of the movement over time. Hip-hop participants over time have served to redefine the identity of poor and minority groups by challenging the dominant conceptions of these groups. The paper concludes that current hip-hop culture possesses important movement traits such as intentionality, contestation, and collective identity all framed by the attributed meaning to early hip-hop. Specifically, members of the hip-hop “community” over the last 15 years frame their identity as one of contesting current political identity splits in black, impoverished, communities, by carrying on the original intent of hip-hop founders. This research concludes that the current hip-hop movement is based on a selective social memory of early hip-hops intention. Early hip-hop participants identify less intentionality, contestation, and collective identity than later participants. The implications of these findings for a discussion of musical protest and social movements in general are also considered.

Abstract: Political participation has been analyzed by its most common form of expression, the vote, for long time. However, voting is one among many resources available to influence political world. Political participation refers to those intentional actions, legal or not, developed by individuals and groups in order to support or question any of the various elements that conform politics field: decision-making, authorities and structures (Sabucedo, 1996).
In this frame, two studies were conducted with the general objective of analyze the structure and determinants of political participation, based on college students convenience samples.
In order to explore how political actions group together, a confirmatory factor analysis was carried out (Study 1, n = 496). Two opposite forms appear: proselytization (convincing others, attending political meetings, relating to politicians and campaigning) vs. mobilization or direct participation. The latter is clearly differentiated in pacific participation (attending demonstrations, participating in strikes and occupying buildings) and aggressive participation (damaging things and using personal violence).
With the aim of analyze determinants of participation types, three regressions have been done (Study 2, n = 419). Results show that proselytization is explained by main activities done by participants, political interest, values and efficacy. Pacific participation is explained by action agreement, political interest and values. Finally, aggressive participation is explained by action agreement, gender, civic engagement, conformism and action efficacy.
