  • the european political science agenda: a multilevel analysis from a
           country perspective
    • Authors: marcelo camerlo; david doyle; fátima garcía diez; leiv marsteintredet
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: This presentation introduces the analytical framework applied in this symposium for the analysis of publishing trends of European political scientists. Our goal is to ascertain the degree to which the discipline in four contrasting countries (Ireland, Norway, Portugal and Spain) speaks to a wider European or international audience. Is political science insular in these countries, or is it internationalised' On which aspects are the publications similar at the domestic, European and international levels, and on which do they differ' What dynamics have affected publishing habits over time' Is it possible to observe a process of convergence or divergence across levels over time' To face these questions, we set up a cross-national research team composed of graduate students and professors from the four countries, and created a common dataset that collected information on articles published in the highest ranked national, European and international journals between 1999 and 2014. The findings suggest that political science research in these countries has been running in two separate worlds: the domestic and the foreign levels. Also, the analyses point to a divergence between north and south regarding the predominant fields, topics and the interest for Europe, and institutional concentration.

  • Norwegian political science in Norway and abroad: major publications
    • Authors: troy saghaug broderstad; håkon jørgen tranvåg; leiv marsteintredet
      Pages: 57 - 76
      Abstract: In this article, we present a new dataset containing political science publications on Norwegian, European and international levels by authors affiliated with Norwegian institutions. 564 articles from 1999 to 2014 are coded according to a variety of variables. Using this dataset, we explore questions regarding who publishes and what is published in Norwegian political science. We confirm suspicions that publications in international journals often contain quantitative methods, while publications in national journals use qualitative methods; that it is predominately professors who publish in high ranking international journals and that women are still strongly underrepresented in publications on all levels, despite rise in tenured female academic staff in Norway. However, we see a trend of more mixed-sex research teams on the international level, which can be explained by two interconnected hypotheses: (I) publication on the international level is more prestigious, and will often require collaboration between several researches; (II) there has been a rise in female PhDs while professors are still mostly male. By contrasting findings from Ireland, Portugal, and Spain, we also present the status of Norwegian political science in an international context. We encourage researchers to investigate further the evolution of Norwegian political science using these data.

           journals (1999–2014)
    • Authors: Marcelo Camerlo; Débora Terra
      Pages: 77 - 92
      Abstract: How was the flow of Portuguese political science publications across national, European and international levels during the last 15 years' Applying the framework proposed by this symposium, our analysis of 182 top ranked articles shows that (i) articles published in top foreign journals present distinctive characteristics as they predominantly rely on the use of quantitative methods, belong to the comparative politics field, confer less attention to democratisation, and are mostly written by mixed teams concentrated in only two institutions; (ii) differently, articles of top national journals present similar features to other local production (predominantly qualitative inward-oriented and written by one male author); and (iii) despite the widespread rapid growth of the discipline in the country, there is no significant change in the nature of these articles within or across the three observed levels during the period of observation.

  • introducing the Heidelberg approach to conflict research
    • Authors: Christoph Trinn; Thomas Wencker
      Pages: 111 - 121
      Abstract: Many conflict-data projects are based on narrow or disjointed concepts of political conflict. They either cover only limited segments of reality or put distinct but related forms of conflict phenomena in conceptual ‘bins’ rather than integrating them into a more comprehensive concept. In addition, conflict intensity is frequently measured by only one indicator, the number of fatalities, which represents only part of the consequences and none of the means of violent conflict. Means and consequences, taken together, constitute the intensity of a conflict. They ought to be combined to arrive at a valid measurement. The Heidelberg approach to conflict research addresses both issues, offering a broad yet differentiated and integrative concept of conflict and a multi-dimensional and multi-indicator approach to intensity. This improves our abilities to recognise and classify conflictive phenomena; to capture conflict-transformation; and to arrive at a valid measurement of intensity. The approach is applied in the new DISCON dataset, comprising data on 155 violent and non-violent interstate, intra-state, and substate conflicts in Asia and Oceania from 2000 to 2014, disaggregated into more than 6300 region-month intensities.

  • Europe’s commitments and failures in the refugee crisis
    • Authors: Rainer Bauböck
      Pages: 140 - 150
      Abstract: Liberal democratic states have three kinds of duties towards migrants and refugees. First, they should enhance their own citizens opportunities of free movement through entering reciprocity-based agreements with other states that are sufficiently similar or with whom they share a political union. Second, they should admit economic migrants if there are expected benefits for the receiving country, the sending country and the migrants themselves. Third, they have to allow for family reunification and to contribute to refugees protection because of their commitments to universal human rights. States can contribute to the latter goal by taking in refugees or by supporting other states that do so. In the international state system, a fair distribution of both types of burdens among all states cannot be secured. In the European Union, however, the principle of sincere cooperation and the need for coordination of refugee flows in the Schengen area of internally open borders combine a normative commitment with self-interests of states to overcome this prisoners’ dilemma. All the more tragic is the blocking of European solutions by unwilling member states who are ready to sacrifice European integration because they are not ready to accept their duties towards refugees.

  • Introduction: towards a better understanding of corruption and
    • Authors: Martin J. Bull; Paul M. Heywood
      Abstract: Despite widespread interest in corruption and how to root it out, the problem continues to grow. Anti-corruption strategies and methods have proved ineffective in achieving lasting reductions in corruption. Anti-corruption academic research has not been free of criticism, and part of the problem is its emphasis on macro-level analysis. The case studies in corruption and anti-corruption in this symposium focus on specific areas that have received surprisingly little attention in the literature: the effectiveness of political finance supervisory bodies; the impact of European Union post-conditionality on anti-corruption efforts; and the increased use of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in shaping the way that corruption is conceptualised and combated on a global scale. Together, the articles in this symposium offer some novel insights and approaches to the issue of how best to understand and assess different ways of addressing corruption in specific sectors which have received insufficient attention in the literature to date.

  • British public opinion on Brexit: controversies and contradictions
    • Authors: Sofia Vasilopoulou; Liisa Talving
      Abstract: What does Brexit really mean' We examine what people expect from the Brexit deal, highlighting three key findings. First, while trade is the key policy priority among the British electorate, opinion is divided on whether the UK should leave the customs union. Second, the public is split on the potential trade-off between remaining in the European single market and the ability to control free movement of people across the borders. Third, Britons are opposed to sharing welfare benefits with others, but tend to support EU citizens living, working and doing business in the UK. However, they expect greater access to welfare for UK citizens in European countries compared to EU citizens in the UK.

  • Was the Brexit referendum legitimate, and would a second one be so'
    • Authors: Richard Bellamy
      Abstract: This article suggests that common arguments questioning the legitimacy of the first Brexit referendum prove flawed, as do certain others supporting the legitimacy of a second referendum. A different case for a second referendum is offered that would have added to the legitimacy of the first, but the opportunity for which has now passed. Nevertheless, it might be legitimate to overturn the first referendum through a normal parliamentary process should there be a significant level of Bremorse among the public, or a general election supporting a change of policy.

  • Banning Bribes Abroad: US Enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
           and its impact on the global governance of corruption
    • Authors: Ellen Gutterman
      Abstract: The USA vigorously enforces its Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), increasingly on an extraterritorial basis. The application of the FCPA to persons and circumstances outside the territory of the US shapes international anti-corruption efforts in ways that may run counter to effective governance practices and meaningful anti-corruption reform in the global economy. This short essay explores three aspects of FCPA enforcement which detract from the broader goals of global anti-corruption governance: the narrow conception of corruption upon which the FCPA is based, the strategic trade frame which underlies the FCPA’s internationalization, and the legitimacy problems these raise.

  • European integration and British membership: Still an intergovernmentalist
    • Authors: Thomas König
      Abstract: This article compares the formation of national preferences and interstate bargains for the two historical decisions on British membership, the accession of the UK to the European Communities and British exit from the European Union. While both resemble in their procedure to overcome intra-party division by announcing a referendum about the outcome of interstate bargains, the closer inspection suggests a transformation from a socioeconomic toward ideological foundation of the national preference on British membership and from intergovernmental bargaining effectiveness toward two-level game (in)voluntary defection.

  • Measuring the enforcement capacity of political financing supervisory
    • Authors: Luís de Sousa
      Abstract: One of the most innovative measures of the political financing regulatory reforms of the past 2 decades was the creation or designation of new political financing supervisory bodies, entrusted to monitor and enforce political financing regulations. These bodies have been growing in numbers in the last 2 decades, partly in response to public opinion pressure and partly to international commitments. Drawing on regulatory and organisational capacity theories, this article seeks to develop a new index to measure the enforcement capacity of these bodies.

  • Combating corruption in Europe: a stimulus–response approach
    • Authors: Gabriela Borz
      Abstract: What is the effect of external stimuli in curbing corruption at the national level' This article analyses the intervening impact of EU post-conditionality and GRECO monitoring on countries’ anti-corruption record. It finds that “soft governance” has a positive impact and stimulates national responses against corruption. This positive influence increases when is additionally conditioned by strong internal stimuli targeting corruption.

  • Self-reported health and democratic innovations: the case of the
           citizens’ initiative in Finland
    • Authors: Henrik Serup Christensen; Maija Setälä; Maija Jäske
      Abstract: This study examines the association between self-reported health and the propensity for supporting citizens’ initiatives in Finland. Democratic innovations such as the citizens’ initiative provide novel ways for citizens to express their preferences, but whether people in poor health make use of such possibilities remains unclear. The data come from the Finnish National Election Study (FNES2015), a cross-sectional representative sample of the Finnish population. The results suggest that self-reported health affects the propensity to sign citizens’ initiatives, but the effect depends on age since it mobilizes young citizens in poor health, whereas the impact on older generations is negligible.

  • Classifying political regimes 1800–2016: a typology and a new
    • Authors: Carsten Anckar; Cecilia Fredriksson
      Abstract: In the present text, we introduce a classification scheme where we decompose democracies and autocracies into several categories. Based on this classification scheme, we create a global dataset covering the time period 1800–2016. In the dataset, we make yearly observations for all countries that have been independent at any point in time since the Second World War. Regarding democracies, we first distinguish between republics and monarchies. We then split the category of republics into presidential, semi-presidential, and parliamentary systems. Within the category of monarchies, almost all systems are parliamentary, but a few countries are conferred to the category semi-monarchies.
      Authors differ markedly in terms of how autocratic regimes should be classified. In the present dataset, we classify autocratic countries into the following main categories: absolute monarchy, military rule, party-based rule, personalist rule, and oligarchy. Within the categories party-based rule and oligarchy, we also identify a number of subcategories.
