Abstract: Current research has established that what individual workers define as sexual harassment is influenced by a number of factors including workplace culture, race, and citizenship status (Dellinger and Williams 2002, Welsh et al. 2006). Less clear is what these contextualized understandings mean for women’s decision to report their workplace harassment experiences. We build on previous work to examine how women’s understanding of their ability to report, as well as their decision to report, are affected by the intersection of race and citizenship status. Relying on recent work in legal consciousness, we demonstrate the variability in women’s legal consciousness around sexual harassment as well as in their belief that the law can help them We use data from twelve focus groups and seventeen interviews of Canadian women (N=67) in our analysis. White women with full citizenship rights fit most closely in either the before the law or with the law categories of legal consciousness. The against the law category of legal consciousness is populated predominately by the women of colour and women without full citizenship rights. By using Ewick and Silbey’s three categories of legal consciousness to frame our analysis, the importance of considering intersectionality as closely connected to women’s experiences of harassment and the decision to report is evident.

3. Huang, Haifeng. "To Report or Not to Report: Local Corruption and Protests in Autocracies" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p363562_index.html>

Abstract: Media reports about social unrest are usually deemed to be dangerous for authoritarian regimes, as such reports may incite more unrest through the snowballing effect and lead to protest cascades. We show that such reasoning is incomplete if social protests are targeted at local governments. Allowing_x000d_news media the freedom to report on social protests will increase the incidence of protests, but will also force local officials to reduce corruption to such an extent that it brings a net benefit to the central_x000d_ruler, especially if the central ruler has a strong capacity to punish local officials.

Abstract: This paper answers how and why people construct themselves as Hong Kong reporters when reporting in Beijing, and the construction of identity interplay with the state, space, and place. This study finds that the construction of identities is triggered by contrasting their difference from the Mainland reporters, and press freedom is the central value for them. The study shows the effort Hong Kong reporters paid to enforce and defend their values under the state power.
