Abstract: A secession occurs when a homeland region of a country becomes its own, new state (e.g. Eritrea), leaving behind the rump state (e.g. Ethiopia). Extant ethnic secession literature either advocates or warns against secessions as a means for dealing with inter-ethnic conflict, but does not provide an explanation of why some secessions are followed by international-level uses of force to redraw the secession-created boundary (e.g. Ethiopia-Eritrea) while others are not (e.g. Sweden-Norway). We fill this gap by relying on a territorial dispute explanation of post-secession armed conflict over land. In a model that applies to ethnic and non-ethnic cases alike, we argue that the leader of the rump state is motivated to use force by the benefits of retaking the land lost to the secessionist state, while the secessionist state's leader is motivated by the benefits of acquiring even more land. The secession process (i.e. peaceful or violent) conditions whether these desires are turned into the use of force. The results - based on the examination of the aftermath of all 20th century secessions - are highly supportive of the model. They reveal that intangibly- (e.g. ethnically-) based territorial disputes play a much greater role in conflict onset than do tangibly- (e.g. economically- or strategically-) based territorial disputes and that - despite the ethnic secession literature's predictions to the contrary - peaceful secessions lead to peaceful relations. The findings provide policymakers with new knowledge as to whether and when secessions are appropriate conflict management tools.

Abstract: The three 2016 general election presidential debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton provided scintillating political theater on grandest stage as record or near record television audiences witnessed the proceedings. Widely thought that all three debates were resoundingly “won” by Clinton, Trump’s follower support proved to be not just remarkably resilient amongst those watching from home, but also highly vocal by those at the debates. Due to the election being decided based upon an “enthusiasm gap” between the highly motivated, yet numerically smaller number of Trump supporters and the more abundant, yet largely more indifferent Clinton followers, this study seeks to find insights into follower fervor by considering the in-person audiences’ response, which in turn might have influenced viewer perceptions. To accomplish this, our study will consider patterns in audience response to Trump and Clinton during their three general election debates. We will examine audience applause, laughter, and booing in terms of the number of these utterances, their strength, and the timing of their occurrence during the course of the debate. We compare the two candidates and their performance in front of ideologically mixed audiences by their ability to elicit group response to their comments and quips. This study will be carried out using ANVIL content analytic methods to provide for precise analysis. Preliminary findings suggest that the first debate was highly aberrant in comparison with previous election cycles due to high levels of audience involvement (23 laughter and 9 applause events).

Abstract: Critical international political economy (IPE) grew out of the engagement which scholars working within the tradition of historical materialism negotiated between the breakdown of the post-World War Two global order and mainstream - predominantly liberal - accounts of that breakdown. As fruitful as this engagement was, it also contained a significant tension between materialist and idealist currents that had long co-existed within the tradition of historical materialism itself, and which had almost always been resolved in favour of the materialist side of this tension. In this paper I sketch out this tension and indicate why the rump materialism that has been its usual resolution is unsatisfactory. I then draw on the work of RG Collingwood and Fernand Braudel to illustrate how a concern with historical idealism can rebalance critical IPE within a rebalanced historical materialist tradition of inquiry. I close by suggesting how such a reformulated critical IPE can provide the basis for a sound examination of the contemporary global order in a moment of possible change.
