Abstract: Testing, investigating, and prosecuting thousands of backlogged SAKs is a massive undertaking that taxes already strained city, county, and state resources. Additionally, this process involves the coordination of resources from the entire system—including but not limited to crime labs, police/sheriffs, victim advocates, prosecutors, and criminal courts. This presentation will focus on the process the Cuyahoga County SAK Task Force (Task Force) forged (and continues to forge) in coordinating, acquiring, and utilizing resources. As is common, at the beginning of the process the Task Force vastly underestimated the amount of resources necessary for this type of undertaking. The presentation will also include a description of the types and estimates of resource needs based upon data collected by the Task Force, such as staffing needs (e.g., number of prosecutors, investigators, and victim advocates), trainings, data management and coordination, and estimating a completion date.

Abstract: By 2006, over 1,200 community-based organizations formed in villages throughout rural Lithuania to solve pressing local problems. Typical organizations are led by women, with 5-10 core activists, and run on volunteer labor. This paper tests empirically core assumption of Resource Mobilization Theory (RMT) through a series of multivariate OLS regression analyses. Specifically, we analyze the extent to which the mobilization of material, human and social-organizational resources by rural SMOs in 2004, predict local-level impacts in 2006 while controlling for social change strategy, tactics and issue framing. The study relies upon an original, longitudinal dataset constructed from a panel survey of a representative sample of village-level SMOs operating throughout rural Lithuania in 2004 and still active in 2006. In 2006, a mail survey was administered to the 237 groups that had previously completed a similar survey in 2004. The response rates for the 2004 and 2006 surveys were 60% and 77% respectively. In all 165 groups completed surveys at both time points and are used in this analysis. The theoretical and research implications of our findings will be discussed.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Research concerned with the link between natural resources and interstate conflict has produced a myriad of posited mechanisms and initial empirical investigations have produced mixed empirical results. This paper focuses on the resource war mechanism and sets out to empirically investigate whether and under what conditions states acquire natural resources across state borders through violent means. It posits that interstate conflict over resources can arise from conditions of domestic resource scarcity or abundant foreign resource concentrations. In doing so it develops a concept of multilevel resources access and employs a network perspective to re-conceptualize conditions of resource scarcity. It is argued that resource concerns arise from the degree of perceived resource access security, which in turn is dependent on the size of domestic resource endowments and on the position of the respective state in resource supply and various other networks. Furthermore, the network perspective can be employed to approximate potential gains and costs of conquest. The effect of the posited conditions is assessed through a tailored research design with directed country dyads in the period 1960 - 2008 and is tested for a number of different natural resources.

Abstract: A multitude of research shows that natural resources are associated with internal armed conflict. Primary commodities are, among other things, financing rebellion and increasing the incentive for secession. In addition, ‘the resource curse’ is associated with corruption, slow growth and poor economic performance. The direct link between resource wealth and internal armed conflict is often explained through a ‘greed’ mechanism, rebels fight to gain control over resource revenues and use resources to finance their rebellion. However, the link can also be explained by a ‘grievance’ argument. People living in resource rich countries might feel deprived if vast resource income does not benefit equally across class and/or groups, and might resort to violence. Also, lack of resources might lead to competition over scarce resources, a competition that can turn violent. This paper investigates carefully the 186 internal armed conflicts in the Uppsala-PRIO dataset (1946–2003) to see whether they can be defined as ‘resource conflicts’, that is, whether there truly is a link between resources and conflict. We find that such resource conflicts experience shorter postconflict peace durations than non-resource conflicts. In the next step we record how natural resources management was addressed in the aftermath of all conflicts, but especially how issues related to management influence the likelihood of lasting peace following resource conflicts. Albeit fragile results it seems like ‘resource conflicts’ are particular difficult to terminate and the mechanisms introduced to manage resources have not been especially helpful.

"Creating a PEPSIG Resource Library of Experiential Program Development Resources (AACP APPI Initiative Part II)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Jul 14, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-07-20 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Objectives: Expansion of the AACP Advanced Pharmacy Practice Initiative (APPI) PEPSIG Resource library to include resources for experiential directors/coordinators to use in program development.

Methods: Keywords and a definition of each keyword were developed to describe aspects of experiential programs. Search for resources included the internet, EBSCOhost, Medline, Wilson Text, individual pharmacy and medicine journals, and leadership and educational texts. PEPSIG Members were invited to submit resources, conference calls and Web-Ex sessions were scheduled weekly to review resources, and assign categories and keywords. Continuous editing eliminated synonymous keywords and double postings. Mapping frameworks were developed to ensure that all topics were included in the reference. A survey to evaluate library use and usefulness was developed. Feedback on library keywords, types of resources people considered valuable and thoughts for the future of the database was solicited from participants at the 2006 National Experiential Education Conferences in Lansdowne Va.
Results: During 2006 over 300 additional references and resource lists on program development and additional resources for preceptor development and training were added to the PEPSIG Resource Library. Keyword definitions were added for improved user application.

Implications: This reference library will continue to be monitored for accuracy and will be maintained and updated regularly. Follow up by Talluto and Nemire includes review of a survey of faculty awareness of the program, and completion of an article describing the development and implementation of the reference library.
