Determinants and Consequences of Women’s Political Participation — Lakshmi Iyer

October 10, 2019 at 6:24 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

Most economists have been focusing on this question about why are some countries rich and why some countries are poor. And you can answer this question in many different ways. My answer has been focusing on the institutions or the rules of the game in different countries. In particular I’m talking about political institutions which

Political Involvement and Civic Engagement – Notre Dame Professor David Campbell

September 23, 2019 at 1:26 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

My research is focused on why people do — or, increasingly do not — get involved in politics. About 20 years ago, there were a number of social scientists who wrote a number of works pointing out that the level of civic engagement within the United States was dropping. 20 years later we lament the

I’m here in Seoul this summer for 10 weeks. I’ve been doing archival research at the Diplomatic Archives of Korea which is in the Gangnam district of Seoul. I’ve been taking a look at some microfilms, also some digitized records, all produced by the South Korean foreign ministry. My senior thesis is on the bilateral

Latino Civic Engagement in America – Luis Fraga, Professor of Political Science

September 22, 2019 at 9:25 am | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

About one in five Americans today are Hispanic. One in four students enrolled in our schools today, K through 12, are Hispanic. Just over one-third of all Catholics in the United States are Hispanic. Who should that interest? I would argue it interests all of us. If we understand this community better it allows us

Great Power Decline and International Security – Joseph Parent

September 21, 2019 at 4:25 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

Ever since Thucydides, who was sort of the first scientist ever, we think that decline is dangerous because it’s the decline of Sparta and the rise of Athens that caused the Peloponnesian War. And so that’s been sort of the conventional wisdom for thousands of years. My co-author Paul McDonald and I found that the

The Science of Modeling Peace – Patrick Regan, Professor of Political Science and Peace Studies

at 8:25 am | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

We need to reinvent the way we think about studying war and peace. War is an easy outcome to measure. War you can observe all the time but just knowing how wars start doesn’t give you that much purchase on how to end war. So we have to find a way to think about modeling

The Constitution and the American Way of Life – Patrick Deneen, Political Science

at 7:25 am | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

When we think about a Constitution we ought to think more comprehensively. When Aristotle writes of the Athenian Constitution he includes discussions of theater, he discusses battles that are fought, in other words, that a constitution is more comprehensive and, simply, the way that we order our government institutions. My interest is in exploring the

The Military and America’s Role in the World: Notre Dame Professor Michael Desch

September 12, 2019 at 4:25 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

My main area of expertise in political science is international relations, American foreign policy, and American national security affairs. One big issue is trying to rethink America’s role in the world. We can’t do everything, even as the world’s most powerful country and often our efforts to try to do everything turn out to be

Violence and Political Founding in Ancient Greece: Susan Collins

at 2:25 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

When we look out into the world we see regimes which are crumbling, which are in civil war, which can’t come to the table. We can’t bring about a consensual, contractual relationship among them. I began looking at questions of political founding and what I was very much interested in is what the ancients saw
