American University Law Review, Vol. 59, No. 2, p. 337, 2009 MARISA SILENZI CIANCIARULO, Chapman University - School of Law CLAUDIA DAVID, affiliation not provided to SSRN.  ABSTRACT:   For over a decade, women seeking asylum from persecution inflicted by their abusive husbands and partners have found little protection in the United States. During that time, domestic violence-based asylum cases have languished in limbo, been denied, or occasionally been granted in unpublished opinions that have not provided a much-needed adjudicative standard. The main case setting forth the pre-Obama approach to domestic ...
Even though there is no specific, universally accepted definition of 'democracy', equality and freedom have been identified as important characteristics of democracy since ancient times. 2 These principles are reflected in all citizens being equal before the law and having equal access to power. For example, in a representative democracy, every vote has equal weight, no restrictions can apply to anyone wanting to become a representative, and the freedom of its citizens is secured by legitimized rights and liberties which are generally protected by a constitution. 3 4 There are several varieties of democracy, some of ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
The policy ratchet and the erosion of civil liberties — Crooked Timber
the reaction is still exactly the same to every Terrorist attack, whether a success or failure, large- or small-scale. Apparently, 8 years of the Bush assault on basic liberties was insufficient; there are still many remaining rights in need of severe abridgment. Even now, every new attempted attack causes the Government to devise a new proposal for increasing its own powers still further and reducing rights even more, while the media cheer it on. It never goes in the other direction. This kind of policy “ratchet” is quite common, but I haven’t seen a fully satisfactory, or general, analysis of either the ... market research, surveys and trends

The problem for conservatism is to reconcile the many and often conflicting demands that these various forms of life impose on us. The free-market ideologues take one instance of spontaneous order, and erect it into a prescription for all the others. They ask us to believe that the free exchange of commodities is the model for all social interaction. But many of our most important forms of life involve withdrawing what we value from the market: sexual morality is an obvious instance, city planning another. (America has failed abysmally in both those respects, of course.) Looked at from the anthropological point of view religion ... market research, surveys and trends

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What kind of managerial/leadership style do you think is best to ...
It's definitely a function of leadership/management style, although that is often a function of the organization's overall culture. More specifically, it's a function of the reward/disincentive structure. When a front-line employee takes a risk and makes a mistake is this treated as a bad thing and punished, or as a learning opportunity to be leveraged in support of professional development? (is the organization schizophrenic and trying to do both?) Are people given challenging tasks and then provided with the support, resources, budget and decision making authority they require to actually accomplish the task? Is ...
Economics: Monarchy, communism, democracy
I am from the Bhutan monarch family, specialized in economics from UK. My royal thoughts promotes the idea that a Ruler takes care of every needs of the subjects.  He could define the needs for his subjects and take care of the  supply responsibility for the whole nation. In the world now, too many people in the government tear up the people�s needs, make a mess of it, create an economic crisis and lead the people into deep troubles. This is applicable to the biggest nation like Russian federation, Canada, China and USA and equally to the smallest nations like  the fragmented islands of  the West indies. Can ...
