  • Analyzing Climate Change Debates in the U.S. Congress: Party Control and
           Mobilizing Networks
    • Authors: Hyung Sam Park; Xinsheng Liu, Arnold Vedlitz
      Pages: 239 - 258
      Abstract: This study examines the differences, if any, in congressional hearings and testimonies on global climate change between Democrat‐ and Republican‐controlled Congresses from 1976 to 2006. Using statistical and network analysis, we examine along party lines the connectedness among congressional committees, issue foci, and witness sectors. While the levels of attention to global climate change were similar between Democrat‐ and Republican‐controlled Congresses, our findings reveal that Democratic Congresses tend to seek scientific evidence for global climate change and advance energy‐regulatory policies with a focus on mobilizing environmentalists and scientific knowledge. In contrast, Republican Congresses tend to expand the climate change debates and conflicts by bringing in a diversified set of witnesses, focusing on the implications of international climate negotiations and economic impacts of policy changes, and mobilizing pro‐industrial sectors and non‐scientific opinions. Showing the differences in the networks that connect policy actors and mobilize various policy sources in congressional hearings and testimonies, we conclude that party control significantly affects the dynamics of climate change debates in the U.S. Congress for the given period.

  • Participation of Youth Councils in Local‐Level HFA Implementation in
           Infanta and Makati, Philippines and Its Policy Implications
    • Authors: Glenn Fernandez; Rajib Shaw
      Pages: 259 - 278
      Abstract: The youth are recognized to have enormous potential in addressing concerns like disaster risk reduction (DRR) because of their energy and number. In the 2010 DRR law of the Philippines, the government is encouraging youth participation in DRR activities, such as in organizing quick response groups, as well as in the inclusion of DRR in youth council projects. To investigate the extent of youth participation in DRR, questionnaire surveys and interviews were conducted in 36 villages of Infanta Municipality and 33 villages of Makati City. Respondents were asked to rate their involvement in and prioritization of the village‐level implementation of 20 relevant Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) tasks and to share details about their past, present, and future DRR activities. The study finds that although youth councils place high importance to almost all of the HFA tasks, few youth councils have a clear understanding of what is expected of them. Research findings show that little has been done to actually involve the youth in DRR in their community, especially in villages where youth councils did not allocate DRR funds. This study tries to contribute to empirical research on the visibility and significance of the roles of young people in DRR.

  • Sex and Drugs (But Not Rock and Roll): The Variation in HIV‐Related
           Restrictions on the Entry, Stay, and Residence of Seropositive Foreigners
           in the Middle East and North Africa
    • Authors: Abigail Krusemark; Erik Cleven
      Pages: 279 - 294
      Abstract: This paper considers the variation in entry, stay, and residence travel restrictions for people living with HIV/AIDS in the World Health Organization's Eastern Mediterranean region and the wider Muslim world. If these travel restrictions are associated with human rights violations, why do some countries maintain restrictions while others repeal them? In particular, why do countries with a secular governmental regime like Egypt maintain restrictions, while non‐secular countries like Iran do not? We argue that in the Eastern Mediterranean region this variation is explained not by the characteristics of a country's particular form of Islam, its level of development, or its adherence to human rights norms, but by the characteristics of the epidemic in a given country. Countries in which the main mode of transmission is sex maintain restrictions because of stigma associated with sex outside marriage in Islam. Countries in which the main mode of transmission is injecting drug use are less likely to maintain restrictions because of Islam's more lenient approach towards drugs. Using firth logistic regression, we show that this holds for countries in the Eastern Mediterranean, but not for Muslim countries globally. We discuss possible reasons for this and the implications for future research.

  • Who Gets What and Why: An Analysis of State Level Funding in the
           Department of Homeland Security
    • Authors: Shane Nordyke
      Pages: 295 - 315
      Abstract: The goals pursued by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) require the collaboration of dozens of federal agencies and thousands of state and local entities. Intergovernmental funding within DHS has become one of the most politicized and criticized aspects of this process. This study analyzed the US Department of Homeland Security's state grant program from 2002 to 2007 to examine whether strong incentives to distribute these funds politically overrode the impetus to distribute them according to greatest risk or need. Using a random effects panel data model, several independent variables reflecting political and risk factors were regressed to examine the extent each of these factors affects the funding process. This paper further advances the research by explicitly comparing the relative importance of political versus risk factors over a 6 year time period with particular focus on whether allocations within Homeland Security's state grant program are primarily determined by political or objective criterion. The research found, that the political variables are more consistently significant predictors of allocations than the risk variables. The findings also provide evidence that formula grants, administered to states, by federal agencies are still susceptible to political influence.

  • An In‐Depth Analysis of the Houston–Galveston Area Council
           Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000
    • Authors: Oluponmile Olonilua; Olurominiyi Ibitayo
      Pages: 316 - 341
      Abstract: The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K) requires that each local government develop an individual mitigation plan or actively participate in the development of a multi‐jurisdictional plan. Jurisdictions are required to collaborate with neighboring jurisdictions, agencies or departments, businesses, academic institutions, media, and non‐profit organizations. This study is an indepth analysis of a multijurisidictional plan with multiple mitigation action plans (MAPS) to better understand the levels of coordination of activities both during the planning process and inclusion of collaboration in their MAPS. This study also investigated the inclusion of activities for public information and awareness, multiple hazards, evacuation procedures and communities for special considerations. The results of this study show that less than 45 percent of the jurisdictions incorporated collaboration, evacuation, and technological hazards, while less than 10 percent included sheltering, terrorism, and special needs population. Many political jurisdictions with different levels of exposure and vulnerability submitted the same MAPS, which negate the community specific approach of hazard mitigation. Results from HGAC analysis were compared with Charleston County, SC and showed that Charleston included more elements than those in HGAC. This study is a policy‐learning tool, which provides information for review and revision of future plan updates.

  • Competing and Complimentary Discourses in Global Disaster Risk Management
    • Authors: Simon Hollis
      Pages: 342 - 363
      Abstract: This article analyses the underlying structures that contribute to the boundaries of appropriate behavior in global Disaster Risk Management (DRM). Understood as a policy field committed to mitigating the effects of natural hazards and assisting states in responding to disasters, international dimensions of DRM have received increased attention by academics and practitioners. Yet, little reflection has been made on the ideational structures that define this field. Based on a discourse analysis on key texts, this study argues that three dominant categories—a humanitarian ethics of care, scientific rationality and sovereignty—demarcate the boundaries of cooperation on DRM. Understanding the relationship between these categories is considered vital for reflecting on the current and future trajectory of this important policy field.
