The micro and meso levels of activism : a comparative case study of Attac France and Attac Germany by Daniel Stockemer( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Attac organisations in France and Germany are among the largest, best coordinated and most closely aligned bodies of the anti-globalisation movement that exist today yet there are glaring differences in the manner in which the organisations operate and in how individual members identify and engage with the movement. Through insightful interviews with Attac activists in France and Germany, Daniel Stockemer seeks to understand the significant divergences between the organisations despite their clear ideological parallels as well as the geographical, social and political similarities that exist between the two countries. In doing so this book provides a strong addition to the literature on activist movements on the national and international stage generally through the author's derivation of engagement patterns for various types of activists and development of a typology of social movement organisations that undercover possible trends in membership. The result is a book that will provide an informative and engaging read for students and scholars of activist movements at both an organisational and individual level"--provided by publisher
The Front National in France : continuity and change under Jean-Marie Le Pen and Marine Le Pen by Daniel Stockemer( )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In light of the transformation of the Front National (FN) to a major player in French politics, this book examines how the unprecedented boost in positive opinions towards the FN as well as its increasing membership and electoral success have been possible. Using a supply and demand framework and a mixed methods approach, the author investigates the development of the FN and compares the "new" FN under Marine Le Pen with the "old" FN under Jean-Marie Le Pen across 4 dimensions: (1) the party's ideology, (2) the leadership styles of the two leaders including the composition of the party elites and the leaders'/ parties' relationship with the media, (3) the party members and (4) the party voters. It appeals to scholars interested in the study of radical right-wing movements and parties as well as to anybody interested in French politics

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Populism Around the World : A Comparative Perspective by Daniel Stockemer( )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a global overview of populist actors and strategies around the globe from a comparative perspective. By presenting six country studies on the United States, France, Poland, Turkey, the Philippines and Argentina, the contributors analyze how parties from both the radical left and right use a populist discourse combining people-centrism, anti-elitism, and the exclusion of certain population cohorts from the national community. They illustrate how populist actors mobilize and persuade citizens by using simple and slogan-based language and charismatic leadership while offering simple solutions to complex problems. Each case study describes the history of populism in the respective country, current populist actors, the strategies these parties and movements employ, and how successful these tactics are within the population. These case studies are embedded within two theoretical chapters that link the cases to the theoretical and empirical literature on populism. This timely book will appeal to anyone interested in understanding the current enormous appeal of populist movements around the globe.--
Quantitative Methods for the Social Sciences : A Practical Introduction with Examples in SPSS and Stata by Daniel Stockemer( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook offers an essential introduction to survey research and quantitative methods. Building on the premise that statistical methods need to be learned in a practical fashion, the book guides students through the various steps of the survey research process and helps to apply those steps toward a real example. In detail, the textbook introduces students to the four pillars of survey research and quantitative analysis: (1) the importance of survey research, (2) preparing a survey, (3) conducting a survey and (4) analyzing a survey. Students are shown how to create their own questionnaire based on some theoretically derived hypotheses to achieve empirical findings for a solid dataset. Lastly, they use said data to test their hypotheses in a bivariate and multivariate realm. The book explains the theory, rationale and mathematical foundations of these tests. In addition, it provides clear instructions on how to conduct the tests in SPSS and Stata. Given the breadth of its coverage, the textbook is suitable for introductory statistics, survey research or quantitative methods classes in the social sciences.--

Presidentialism and voter turnout in legislative elections by Daniel Stockemer( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

What is the influence of presidentialism on legislative turnout? Does it matter for electoral participation if the presidential and legislative elections are held on the same day or not? If any, what is the confounding impact of the electoral system type? This article uses a sample of more than 450 democratic legislative elections between 1990 and 2010 to evaluate these three research questions. Distinguishing three types of regimes: (1) parliamentary systems, (2) presidential systems with concurrent presidential and legislative elections and (3) presidential systems with non-concurrent presidential and legislative elections, we first evaluate the impact of each of these three system types on legislative turnout in a multivariate framework. We find that the first two regime types have higher turnout figures than the third regime type. In a second step, we examine whether citizens' participation in any of the three system types interacts with the electoral formula in their country. Our results indicate that proportional representation has a moderate positive impact on turnout in presidential systems with non-concurrent presidential and legislative elections, a negative impact in presidential systems with concurrent legislative elections to the state's two highest offices and no impact in parliamentary systems
French activists to the (radical) right and the (radical) left: are they different or similar?( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: This research aims at detecting commonalities and differences between right-wing and left-wing activists. Based on 44 interviews with members of the French National Front (FN) and 88 Attac activists, I find that Attac activists are individuals with high amounts of civic skills that have been politically socialised until the age of 25. Somewhat different, my interview research indicates that the socialisation mechanisms of FN members, as well as their social and educational backgrounds are diverse. Pertaining to the activists' values, the two groups expose values at the opposite end of the political spectrum. Whereas left-wing activists respond to globalisation and neo-liberalism by highlighting national and international solidarity and participatory democracy, the radical right-wing members respond to the same phenomena by propagating nationalism, authoritarianism and protectionist policies. Finally, I find that left-wing activists are driven by instrumental and ideological considerations, whereas right-wing activists are motivated by ideology as well as identity processes

Women's representation around the world : the importance of women's participation in the workforce by Daniel Stockemer( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Aside from the commonsensical conclusion that institutions (e.g. quota rules) boost women's parliamentary representation, there is little consensus in the academic literature on the relative and absolute impact other economic, cultural or societal factors have on the number of women in parliament. One variable that is particularly debated in the literature is women's labour force participation. The indicator's reported impact ranges from substantivelypositive to nil to even slightly negative. In this article we aimto resolve these controversies. Our pooled time series analysis-based on the largest possible data set, namely all countries for which the data are available from 1995 to 2010-indicates that the number of women in the workforce strongly influences women's parliamentary representation

Beauty and Cabinet Nomination : Is There a Gender Bias? by Mara Uzun( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this thesis, I aim to answer the following questions: (1) is there a relationship between the gender of the nominator and the beauty of the ministers that he or she selected, and (2) do nominators select more attractive ministers of the opposite sex. I compare and contrast the physical beauty of ministers of three cabinets nominated by a male prime minister and three cabinets nominated by a female prime minister. My descriptive statistics and multivariate regression analysis, in which I control for the age of the nominator, the physical attractiveness of the nominator, the professional experience of the nominator, the age of the minister and the margin of victory of the nominators̀€ party, reveal interesting results. I find that both male and female prime ministers nominate better-looking women, and that this tendency is even stronger and slightly more pronounced for female nominators than it is for male nominators

Citizens' support for the European Union and participation in European Parliament elections by Daniel Stockemer( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dominant paradigm characterizes European Parliament (EP) elections as secondorder national elections. Scholars adhering to this view ... not only identify these elections as less important, but also emphasize that low turnout in EP elections is unrelated to citizens' support for the European Union (EU). In this article, I challenge this latter proposition. Analyzing all EP elections since 1979, I first find that higher macro-level support for EU membership leads to higher turnout. Second, I discover that changes in aggregate EU support directly trigger changes in turnout rates. Third, a multilevel analysis of Eurobarometer data confirms these macro-level trends at the micro level and finds that citizens who consider their country's membership in the EU "a good thing" have a higher likelihood of voting in EP elections than those who reject it. These findings have both empirical and theoretical implications. Empirically, the low turnout in EU elections is directly linked to citizens' rejection of the EU project. Theoretically, the second-order national election thesis needs to be altered. Turnout in EP elections is driven by not only national-level factors but also citizens' satisfaction with the EU."--Editor
Women's representation in Europe : a comparison between the national parliaments and the European Parliament by Daniel Stockemer( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prior research on women's representation conducted in various areas of the world has emphasized the type of electoral system, quotas, the economic affluence of a country and the timing of women's suffrage, as well as the percentage of women in leadership positions and the political culture. In this comparative study all of these characteristics are first investigated for each country's national parliament. In a second step, the robustness of the model is tested by applying it to the European parliamentary elections. In this sense, this study is novel, as it is the first comparative study to test the robustness of a model in two different settings. This analysis reveals that the model generated for the national level does not provide a good fit for explaining women's representation in the European Parliament. Consequently, it is still impossible to generalize about the state of women's representation in Europe."--Editor

Age and political participation in Germany, France and the UK : a comparative analysis by Daniela F Melo( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this article, we evaluate the relationship between age and three types of political participation: voting, demonstrating and signing petitions. Our comparative analysis of individual-level data from the three largest European countries - Germany, France and the United Kingdom - reveals three interesting findings. First, we find that younger generations are less likely to vote than their older counterparts. Second, our results indicate that those trends are reversed for unconventional participation. Individuals born between the late 1970s and early 1990s are significantly more likely to engage in forms of direct action, such as demonstrations and petitions. This suggests we are experiencing changing patterns of participation for young adults, rather than declining civic engagement. Third, we discover that the relationship between age and various forms of political engagement is frequently not linear. While some forms of political involvement are strongest among the elderly (that is voting), other types are more pronounced among individuals between the ages of 34 and 65 (that is signing petitions) or the young (that is participation in demonstrations)."--Editor
