  • Bomb or build' How party ideologies affect the balance of foreign aid
           and defence spending
    • Authors: Georg Wenzelburger, Florian Böller
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      This article contributes to a growing literature that questions the traditional ‘politics stops at the water’s edge’ paradigm. Left- and right-wing parties hold diverging ideologies and articulate specific party programmes regarding policy priorities in the realm of foreign and security affairs. The impact of partisan contestations over foreign policy priorities can be traced in defence and foreign aid spending. We understand this ‘bomb-or-build’-balance as two sides of a coin which shapes the international posture of democracies. Our quantitative analysis of 21 OECD countries (1988–2014) reveals that the ideological positions of the parties in government influence the relative importance of military expenditures versus foreign aid. The more the ideological position of a government is tilted towards the military (and against internationalism), the more the ‘bomb-or-build’-balance shifts in favour of military spending (and in disfavour of foreign aid).

  • Can household debt influence income inequality' Evidence from Britain:
    • Authors: James DG Wood
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      The various processes of financialisation widen inequalities by increasing incomes for financial sector employees and shareholders, as well as affluent households who hold the concentrated ownership of financial assets. Although interest payments provide a flow of revenue from indebted households to financial institutions, the distributional consequences of such debt-based systems of financialisation remain an under-explored research area. As the financialisation of the British economy has been driven by the widespread adoption of private debt, this econometric analysis examined the effects of changes in household debt on income inequality in Britain between 1966 and 2016. These results demonstrate household debt increases the share of income captured at the top of the income distribution, while increasing inequality between the top and the middle of the income scale. Therefore, the mundane decision to take on household debt has significant distributional consequences, specifically entrenching pre-existing disparate social relations between affluent and less-affluent households in Britain.

  • The United Kingdom’s special responsibilities at the United Nations:
           Diplomatic practice in normative context
    • Authors: Jason Ralph, Jess Gifkins, Samuel Jarvis
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      In a 2017 speech to the United Nations, Theresa May referred to the United Kingdom’s ‘special responsibilities’. This article examines how the United Kingdom can properly discharge those responsibilities at the United Nations. We offer an innovative analytical framework that merges English School theory of international society with diplomatic practice theory, and find that there are limits to the claim that the United Kingdom compensates for its relative material decline through diplomatic activism. We identify the special responsibility of the permanent member in terms of a capacity to reconcile the ‘concert’ and ‘governance’ functions of the Council, and to contribute materially to the achievement of governance objectives in areas where consensus is possible. Drawing on extensive interview data, and illustrating with reference to current debates on peacekeeping, we find that a state’s capacity to ‘punch above its weight’ diplomatically is linked to its material commitments and to a more inclusive approach in the Council.

  • Public opinion on climate change: Belief and concern, issue salience and
           support for government action
    • Authors: Sam Crawley, Hilde Coffé, Ralph Chapman
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      Climate policy across the developed world remains inadequate, despite high levels of concern about climate change among the public. Yet public opinion on climate change is complex, with individuals differing on three key opinion dimensions: belief and concern, issue salience, and support for government action. In this study, we investigate how these dimensions intersect at the individual level. Based on data from an online survey conducted in 2018 in the United Kingdom (N = 787), a latent class analysis reveals that there are five climate change opinion publics. The two largest publics have strong beliefs that climate change is occurring, but view it as a low salience issue, or are wary of government action to address it. We also investigate sociopolitical covariates of each public. By providing a detailed picture of climate change views, these findings can help us to better understand the relationship between public opinion and climate policy.

  • Chaos is a ladder: A study of identity, norms, and power transition in the
           Game of Thrones universe
    • Authors: Ronnie Olesker
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the interplay between identities, norms and power transition in the HBO series Game of Thrones. Using discourse analysis of season 7’s transcripts and viewing the show, I conclude that the most dominant themes to emerge are those related to identity and norms, in the context of hegemonic power transition. The season focuses on the impact of normative and ideational factors on how alliances operate and on the prospects of cooperation between alliances. I find that identity distributions across great powers impact the ability of characters to muster a successful challenge to the existing world order. Furthermore, I find that the survival of actors whose normative commitments are mismatched with their alliance is not guaranteed through the alliance. Thus, the show serves as an effective knowledge production site for exploring the consequences of power transition and alliance theory as power begins to transition in our own universe.

  • Representation in Western Europe: Connecting party-voter congruence and
           party goals
    • Authors: Annika Werner
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      One of the most common critiques of political parties is that they no longer represent the interests of their voters. On one hand, representation literature tasks all parties equally to ensure high ideological congruence with their voters. On the other hand, party behaviour literature acknowledges that parties have legitimately different primary goals, in particular vote-maximisation or policy-seeking. Thus, this article analyses whether ideological congruence depends on the general goals that parties pursue. Furthermore, this article proposes a novel, distribution-based measure of party-voter ideological congruence that reduces the loss of voter information stemming from the many-to-one data relationship. This measure is applied to 470 data points from parties in 10 Western European countries from 1970 to 2009. The article finds that vote-maximising parties create higher levels of congruence than policy-seeking parties. On this basis, the article calls for evaluations of party behaviour considering party-type specificity.

  • The emergence of politics as a taught discipline at universities in the
           United Kingdom
    • Authors: John Craig
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      While existing disciplinary histories of political science focus on areas such as the development of research agendas, establishment of chairs and the founding of subject associations, little work has been undertaken on the history of teaching and learning. Based on extensive archival work and use of contemporaneous documents and surveys, it combines data sources, which have not previously been used in writing the history of political science. These are used to construct a history of the taught discipline which traces the development of courses and curricula within UK universities during the 20th century. In doing so, it makes a significant contribution to the history of political science, challenging existing accounts and chronologies of the development of politics in UK universities, through a more comprehensive account of its diverse origins.

  • Public conceptions and constructions of ‘British values’: A
           qualitative analysis
    • Authors: Lee Jarvis, Lee Marsden, Eylem Atakav
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      This article draws on original focus group research to explore constructions of ‘British values’, in ‘everyday’ discourse. Two prominent, yet competing conceptions of this term are identified: political/institutional and social/cultural. Although each of these conceptions risks essentialising ‘British values’, this risk is mitigated by publics in at least three ways: (1) explicit recognition of the term’s ambiguities; (2) discussion of its political motivations and exclusionary outcomes; and, (3) identification of qualitative change in the meaning of ‘British values’ over time. As the first exploration of public understandings of this term, their differences, and these complications, the paper offers three contributions: (1) adding breadth to existing studies of everyday nationalism through focus on ‘British values’ specifically; (2) shedding light on this trope’s work in broader conversations around social and political life in the United Kingdom; and (3) facilitating reflection on the reception of, resistance to, and re-making of elite political discourse.

  • ‘If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change’:
           Rethinking order and justice in international society
    • Authors: Richard Shapcott
      First page: 633
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      This article argues that conceptualising the ethical/moral possibilities of international society can be enhanced by utilising the distinction between positive and negative duties rather than order versus justice. The main argument of the article targets the traditional pluralist account and claims that within this account far greater moves towards justice are possible, which can be seen through the lens of order versus justice. More specifically, it argues that a pluralist international society need not be indifferent to global injustices such as poverty, if the range of negative duties is expanded.

  • A pessimistic liberalism: Jacob Talmon’s suspicion and the birth of
           contemporary political thought
    • Authors: Dillon Stone Tatum
      First page: 650
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      Discussions of liberalism as a political ideology often focus on the progressive, civilisational, and triumphalist ideologies of liberal thinkers. Scholarly work on liberal empire situates these issues in the context of colonialism, and contemporary discussions of liberal world order devote much intellectual space to optimism about liberalism. Scholars have spent much less time connecting liberalism to deep cynicism and suspicion. This article, in focusing on what I term a ‘pessimistic liberalism’, fills this gap by examining the ways that the spectre of totalitarianism influenced post-war liberal thought. The mid-20th century was a pivotal moment where both liberalism and its critics proceeded to make arguments about politics that began from similar attitudes about the nature of the political: suspicion, cynicism, resignation, and fear. Specifically, the article analyses historian Jacob Talmon’s genealogy of modern leftist thought to illustrate the shift in liberal thinking from its 19th century optimism to its 20th century pessimism and scepticism. Talmon’s engagement with the issues of political messianism, nationalism, and cosmopolitanism represented a ‘hermeneutics of suspicion’ (pace Paul Ricoeur) that critiqued the triumphalism of previous political projects. The article concludes by connecting this project to the broader development of ‘contemporary political thought’ and reflects on pessimism’s place in politics.

  • All in this together' Austerity and the gender-age gap in the 2015 and
           2017 British general elections
    • Authors: Anna Sanders, Rosalind Shorrocks
      First page: 667
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      The 2010–2015 Conservative-led Coalition’s austerity policies hit women financially harder than men. However, contrary to expectations at the time, the Conservatives still gained more support from women than men on average in the 2015 general election. We examine the impact of austerity on vote choice in the 2015 and 2017 general elections through analysis of Labour and Conservative economic policy in conjunction with data from the British Election Study’s face-to-face post-election surveys. The expectation that women should be particularly anti-austerity and thus less supportive of the Conservative Party does hold for younger women, who were especially pessimistic relative to their male peers and older age groups about their living costs, household finances, the economy, and the National Health Service in both elections. However, this does not hold for older women, who were protected by the Coalition’s policies on pensions and were more similar to men in their assessment of their economic situation.

  • Centenary celebrations meet a farewell party: British-Czech bilateral
           relations in the times of Brexit
    • Authors: Monika Brusenbauch Meislova
      First page: 689
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      2019 marks an especially important year for British-Czech bilateral relations. As a year of both centenary celebrations of opening of the British Embassy in Prague and Brexit, it makes for a fascinating paradox: a symbol of a century-long continuity on one hand and a year of serious disruption on the other hand. Against this background, the overarching aim of this article is to investigate Brexit implications for British-Czech bilateral relations, placing this assessment in the context of the long-term evolution of these relations and relating it to debates within the scholarship on the effects of Brexit. At the same time, it addresses some of the wider political questions that will determine the nature of Brexit’s supposed effects on the future direction of individual bilateral relations between the UK and EU27 member states.

  • Language policy in multi-level systems: A historical institutionalist
    • Authors: Elin Royles, Huw Lewis
      First page: 709
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      Efforts are underway to develop a stronger political science perspective regarding the practice of language policy to establish language policy as a distinct field of public policy studies. The article’s original theoretical contribution is to develop a framework, grounded in historical institutionalism, to analyse the multi-level institutional factors that influence language policy choices relating to regional or minority languages within European multi-level states. The framework is tested by applying it to analyse the multi-level factors that condition language policy decisions regarding the Welsh language, and through further investigating the framework’s significance and robustness to analyse language policy trajectories in two contrasting European cases. Overall, the article makes the case for the strengths and adaptability of the framework in producing convincing explanations of the multi-level dimensions of language policy development in different institutionalised contexts and calls for greater investigation of its ability to analyse other regional and minority languages in Europe.

  • Lost in the Process' The impact of devolution on abortion law in the
           United Kingdom
    • Authors: David S Moon, Jennifer Thompson, Sophie Whiting
      First page: 728
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      Using the case study of abortion policy across the United Kingdom, this article takes a feminist institutionalist approach to advance our understanding of state architecture and party competition within decentralised political systems. Despite increasing divergences across the United Kingdom in relation to abortion policy, contemporary debates around abortion access have rarely become politicised. Moreover, as this article demonstrates, when they have, the subject has been framed by politicians as a constitutional matter, relating to legislative competencies, rather than considered in terms of women’s rights. This framing, we argue, is linked to the specific constitutional arrangements of the post-devolution UK and the political strategies of the parties operating within them. Drawing upon parliamentary debates and interviews with political representatives to map the circumstances driving changes to abortion policy in the United Kingdom, this article introduces important comparative lessons for other cases of political decentralisation on the discussions and policies concerning women’s rights.

  • Suspicious minds: An examination of trust-building in party mergers
    • Authors: Dan Keith, Emma Sanderson-Nash, Alan Wager
      First page: 746
      Abstract: The British Journal of Politics and International Relations, Ahead of Print.
      Here, we examine the understudied merger of the Social Democratic Party and the Liberal Party. This systematic study of the process which created the Liberal Democrats in 1988 adds to our understanding of what was a rare but important event in British politics. We demonstrate that it deviated from theoretical accounts of such mergers that stress the need for trust at the elite level. We recognise that inter-party trust can instead develop across the three faces of party organisation. We contribute a new typology for understanding these processes, and argue that existing studies are right to highlight that trust between the party in public office is important but wrong to conclude that its absence precludes mergers from occurring. Instead, we find that a lack of trust between parties in public office restricts the degree of delegation and increases the level of monitoring and formalisation, which can have damaging effects on the parties that emerge.
