Building on earlier work, this text combines theoretical perspectives with empirical work, to provide a comparative analysis of the electoral systems, party systems and governmental systems in the ethnic republics and regions of Russia. It also assesses the impact of these different institutional arrangements on democratization and federalism, moving the focus of research from the national level to the vitally important processes of institution building and democratization at the local level and to the study of federalism in Russia.
of this foray into the digital economy. As will be further discussed, articles cover a range of geographic breadth ranging from South America to East Africa to the Middle East and focus on both specific humanitarian digital livelihoods programming, online work platforms, and the broader engagement of refugees in the digital economy. This comparative analysis underscores how the precarious inclusion of refugees into web-based economies is both
Public health responses to the broad history of plague epidemics over time can be effectively assessed through a process of comparative historical analysis, which has three core features: ‘concern with causal analysis, the exploration of temporal processes, and the use of systematic and contextualized comparison typically limited to a small number of cases’ ( Mahoney and Rueschemeyer, 2003 : 14). Comparative analysis is a relatively new public health research framework, but Worboys (1994
’ (128) – a ‘call to arms’ that was portrayed with ‘connotations of modernity’ (131) conveyed through images like that of a Red Cross hospital with rows of ‘doctors and nurses in crisp Western uniforms’ assembled on the lawn. Analysing ‘humanitarian photography’, Reeves’ essay reminds us, requires looking at how humanitarian mobilisations have occurred outside, often influenced but also distinct from, the West.

The Politics of Information and Analysis: Evidence from Six Cases The comparative analysis of the six cases includes examination of the constraints and influences on data and data collection, on the analysis process, the impact of these influences and lessons learned for better managing these influences.

This book presents new theories and international empirical evidence on the state of work and employment around the world. Changes in production systems, economic conditions and regulatory conditions are posing new questions about the growing use by employers of precarious forms of work, the contradictory approaches of governments towards employment and social policy, and the ability of trade unions to improve the distribution of decent employment conditions. Designed as a tribute to the highly influential contributions of Jill Rubery, the book proposes a ‘new labour market segmentation approach’ for the investigation of issues of job quality, employment inequalities, and precarious work. This approach is distinctive in seeking to place the changing international patterns and experiences of labour market inequalities in the wider context of shifting gender relations, regulatory regimes and production structures.
Job quality: challenges for comparative analysis 9 Job quality: conceptual and methodological challenges for comparative analysis Agnieszka Piasna, Brendan Burchell, Kirsten Sehnbruch and Nurjk Agloni Introduction International development agencies such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and individual governments have traditionally been more concerned with the quantity of jobs – as measured by the rate of unemployment, or the rate of participation in the labour market
eighteenth-century historical and gothic fiction is misleading. Both Longsword and Otranto , it argues, demonstrate how inherently intertwined these terms and the literary forms they have come to connote were for their authors and contemporary society. Both texts similarly underline the very different notions of the term gothic late eighteenth-century writers had in comparison to twentieth- and twenty-first-century constructions. Comparative analysis of these texts as at once gothic and historical thus provides a fresh perspective on the origins of British gothic
available solution in the event that political science show signs of running out of steam. The fact is that political studies have always needed other disciplines, in order to optimize the chances of making further advances. The evidence displayed by the lookingglass reveals the potential to create more ‘added value’ by expanding the vision. That means seeking a closer engagement among disciplines and increasing the scope for broadbased comparative analysis, thereby highlighting distinctive cases, confirming important variations, and enhancing the quest for cross
