Abstract: Human behavior is only partly based on reflective thinking whereas many, especially cognitive less demanding activities may be initiated in a habitual way (e.g., Strack/Deutsch 2004). Since so called conventional political activities require more (not only cognitive) efforts (e.g., long-term obligation) than unconventional or electoral political participation which is mostly less binding and more event-related, it comes to mind that the latter are activated via an "affective" pathway while conventional action probably requires a reflective behavioral system. As political interest orders people's impulses (e.g., Herbart 1806) it should be a powerful predictor of unconventional and electoral political activity. For conventional participation, however, reflection and thus (subjective) political competence (i.e., internal political efficacy) might be necessary, possibly supplemented by political interest. This assumption is followed using an online panel sample of Turkish migrants in Germany, comparing it with a non-migrant sample. Therefore, multiple regression analyses are used and complemented by multivariate analyses employing more complex path models. For the migrant sample, results point to the overwhelming importance of political interest in the prediction of legal political activity. In regard to conventional political activity, both variables of cognitive politicization have only indirect effects that are mediated via readiness to participate in conventional political action. For non-migrants, however, readiness to participate has no predictive relevance. Adding to that, here subjective political competence seems to be of more predictive value than political interest. These (differing) patterns are confronted with each other, focusing on the importance of political action and societal integration of migrants.

Abstract: Human behavior is only partly based on reflective thinking whereas many activities might be initiated habitually. Since “conventional” political activities require more efforts than unconventional or electoral political participation, the latter might be activated via an “affective” pathway represented by political interest (Hypothesis I). In contrast, conventional action probably requires a reflective behavioral system. Subjective political competence (i.e., internal political efficacy) is thus hypothesized to be a necessary precondition to initiate conventional participation (Hypothesis II), possibly supplemented by political interest. Both assumptions are followed using an online panel sample of Turkish migrants in Germany, comparing it with non-migrants. Therefore, multiple regression analyses are used and complemented with complex path models and qualitative interviews. Regarding the Turkish migrants, first results support Hypothesis I and indicate the importance of political interest in predicting legal political activity (voting, conventional, and unconventional action). With regard to conventional action, preliminary analyses show partial evidence for Hypothesis II: both variables of cognitive politicization have indirect effects being mediated via readiness to participate in conventional political action. In contrast, for non-migrants subjective political competence seems to be of more predictive value than political interest. Yet there is limited evidence with regard to both hypotheses in the comparison sample. These differing patterns are going to be examined in more detail using a large sample from the German Longitudinal Election Study to discussing the importance of political action and societal integration of migrants.

Abstract: Research in political sociology is oftentimes based in an implicit definition of the political. This definition, while fruitful in uncovering the relationship between politics and various social institutions and structures, limits the scope of where politics can occur and the relationship between the political and the social. This paper examines the characteristics of this implicit ontological choice and argues for a different version of the political based in the contestation of relationships and resources among actors in society. Comparing this version of the political to state-centric and economic-centric strains of political sociology shows new potential avenues of understanding politics in society.

Abstract: Political news reporting in China is highly ideology-oriented and takes the responsibility of propaganda, but it shows a fixed pattern in narratives and frames. Based on the communication mediation model, this study explores the impact of exposure to political news on educated young Chinese’s political participation through the mediation of political trust, political alienation and attitude towards Internet censorship through a survey on Chinese college students using an analogous PPS sampling approach (N=495). The results of path analysis suggest that exposure to political news encourages participation directly, but at the same time arouses political distrust, political alienation and low support for Internet censorship, demonstrating the malfunction of political propaganda on educated young people. In addition, Chinese college students’ political distrust is positively related to political alienation, implying that the respondents’ understanding of “politics” in “political trust” and “political participation” is different.

Abstract: This paper seeks to explore the utility of an ecological based vision of
 human development and its relevance to the reconstruction of 
African-American political theory in the Post-Katrina era. It argues that 
contemporary African-American scholars and activist, informed by an "urban
 bias" (privileging urban, industrial models of human development and
 organization), have failed to refine and expand our analysis of the unique
 social problems of Black communities in the United States, particularly 
through the prism of political economy. In this sense both liberal and 
radical scholars share an allegiance to the illusion of "unlimited economic
 growth", a core feature of the neo-liberal project. It is argued that
 environmental degradation and human "underdevelopment" are twin realities of
 the "neo-liberal deluge". For this reason Africana political theory
 must "recenter" the ecological question if it seeks to remain relevant and
 progressive.
