Law enforcement, municipal budgets and spillover effects Galletta, Sergio

In this paper, I empirically investigate the presence of spillover effects resulting from the strengthening of law enforcement against corruption and organized crime in local governments. Specifically, I take advantage of an Italian law that gives power to the central government to replace democratically elected municipal officials who are potentially connected with mafia with a commission of...

How structurally stable are global socioeconomic systems? Saavedra, Serguei;Rohr, Rudolf P;Gilarranz, Luis J;Bascompte, Jordi

The stability analysis of socioeconomic systems has been centred on answering whether small perturbations when a system is in a given quantitative state will push the system permanently to a different quantitative state. However, typically the quantitative state of socioeconomic systems is subject to constant change. Therefore, a key stability question that has been under-investigated is how...

Stock fluctuations are correlated and amplified across networks of interlocking directorates Saavedra, Serguei;Gilarranz, Luis J;Rohr, Rudolf P.;Schnabel, Michael;Uzzi, Brian;Bascompte, Jordi

Traded corporations are required by law to have a majority of outside directors on their board. This requirement allows the existence of directors who sit on the board of two or more corporations at the same time, generating what is commonly known as interlocking directorates. While research has shown that networks of interlocking directorates facilitate the transmission of information between...

Conflicts of interest in International Organizations. Evidence from two United Nations humanitarian agencies Varone, Frédéric

The independence of International Civil Servants (ICSs) from their country of origin is often presumed but rarely accounted for empirically. In order to address this gap, we investigate whether ICSs face conflicts between national and international interests and which conditions are more conducive to the manifestation of this conflict in International Organizations. We adopt a mixed-methods...

Rethinking Comparative Political Economy: The Growth Model Perspective Pontusson, Harry Jonas

This paper develops an analytical approach to comparative political economy that focuses on the relative importance of different components of aggregate demand—in the first instance, exports and household consumption—and dynamic relations among the "demand drivers” of growth. We illustrate this approach by comparing patterns of economic growth in Germany, Italy, Sweden and the UK over the...

Racial Profiling and the Political Philosophy of Race Lever, Annabelle

Philosophical reflection on racial profiling tends to take one of two forms. The first sees it as an example of ‘statistical discrimination,' (SD), raising the question of when, if ever, probabilistic generalisations about group behaviour or characteristics can be used to judge particular individuals.(Applbaum 2014; Harcourt 2004; Hellman, 2014; Risse and Zeckhauser 2004; Risse 2007;...
