Abstract: Generous welfare policies are sometimes considered to be incompatible with influx of immigrants. This statement corroborates the group threat theory according to which social security is a privilege of the majority. However, it is also considered that generous welfare reduces anti-immigrant hostility by alleviating economic vulnerability of a country’s citizens. This study analyzes the relationship between welfare and anti-immigrant attitudes. It pays attention to the differences between active welfare policies and passive welfare policies, since they have different ideological bases and can have opposing effects on anti-immigrant attitudes; active policies are based on individualism, which may in turn weaken anti-immigrant attitudes while passive policies based on solidarity, which may in turn strengthen anti-immigrant attitudes. From the analysis of the cross-national data (World Value Surveys), the following results are found. In countries that allocate large budgets for active welfare policies, the citizens become more tolerant toward immigrants. Moreover, those who are unemployed become more likely to accept the equal distribution of resources between themselves and immigrants. On the contrary, in countries that allocate large budgets for passive welfare policies, the citizens have more of an exclusionary attitude toward immigrants. Although both policies reduce vulnerability to a certain extent, passive welfare is likely to be perceived as a privilege exclusively for citizens. Therefore, generous passive welfare can lead to the perception of group threats, unlike active welfare policies.

Abstract: The psychology of analogical reasoning, a specific form of causal thinking, provides an excellent model of the individual for a theory of policy diffusion. We extend this theory of policy diffusion to its next logical step: policy analysis and program evaluation. We expect that in situations where policy diffusion typically occurs, the nature of the analogy utilized to justify the diffusion of the policy should indicate the likelihood of policy success. In situations where analogies are backed by solid causal theory, the likelihood of success should be higher than for situations where analogy use is less sound. We empirically test this theory using the diffusion of eighteen different state renewable energy policies that were designed to encourage the construction of wind turbines. Our analysis reveals that the analogical reasoning that influenced the adoption of these policies was not always correctly associated with an important causal component – the availability of wind.

Abstract: Is there such a thing as Common European Foreign Policy? In evaluating European Foreign Policy (EFP), it is important to take into account that EFP is made by the institutions of the EU as well as the institutions of the member states. Recent conceptualizations of foreign policy analysis have focused on actor-specific theories, are best suited for explaining EFP. This paper analyzes the case of the European democracy promotion policies toward the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since the beginning of the 1990s the African Great Lakes region has been the target of continued involvement on the part of the European Union as a whole as well as some of its member states. Drawing on James Rosenau's framework, this paper seeks to demonstrate how and when different actors influence the initiation and implementation phases of foreign policy making. Within the analysis of each stage, this paper mainly focuses on comparing the respective role and influence of the institutions of the member states as well as the institutions of the EU. The analysis of the case presented in this paper illustrates the extent to which each of these actors is relevant to the making of foreign policy and whether or not it is justified to talk about a Common European Foreign Policy and what we mean by this.
