Ford Seminar: "International Social Networks and Motivation for Migration in the Sahel"

-

Location: 1050 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

A Ford Seminar with Kellogg Faculty Fellows Jaimie Bleck and A. Nilesh Fernando

The Seminar hopes to build intellectual community around the Ford Program’s mission of conducting research that promises to deepen our understanding of human dignity and enhance the effectiveness of efforts to promote integral human development.

Lecture: "Religion and Patronage in Divided Societies: Insights from an Experimental Study of Political Behavior in Lebanon"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.  A lecture by Melani Cammett

What is the relationship between clientelism and “identity politics” in driving political behavior in developing countries, particularly where patronage structures political life and identity-based cleavages are politicized? This talk will address questions including: Does clientelism “buy” support? Do shared ethnic or religious identities between candidates and voters garner political support, or do they serve as cues for potential access to more clientelist benefits? Cammett’s talk is based on a survey experiment in Lebanon, conducted with Dominika Kruszewska of Harvard University and Sami Atallah of the Lebanese Center for Policy Studies, aimed at testing the relative influence of clientelism and religion on citizen political behavior.

2019 Human Development Conference

(part of a series)

Engaging with Empathy: a preferential option for the poor in development

The poor, according to Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach, consist of individuals who are deprived of basic freedoms such as education, political power, and other capabilities that allow individuals to achieve full lives that they have reason to value. This approach broadens the definition of poverty beyond traditional terms of financial power to recognize a multitude of “unfreedoms” which hinder upward movement in society. Historically, marginalized individuals most affected by policy changes are often ignored in the decision-making process in the development arena. This creates dire consequences: from lack of acceptance and implementation of new initiatives at the grassroots level to the inability of locals to adapt and scale programs according to their own community’s specific needs.…

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Perspectives World Politics Logo Kellogg19 600x400

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A World Politics Series lecture by Allen Hicken.

The literature on party and party system institutionalization focuses on party institutionalization as a function of democratic factors. But more than half of authoritarian regimes from 1950 to 2006 had at least one political party. Hicken, drawing on a paper co-authored with Darin Self of Cornell University, investigates the extent to which the institutional environment under authoritarian rule shapes party competition and institutionalization after a democratic transition.…
