    • SOME REFLECTIONS ON THE LIMITATIONS TO PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN THE POST-POLITICAL CITY

      Ronan Paddison (0000-00-00)
      Neoliberal practices are the new orthodoxy within urban governance imposing limits to participatory and more democratic forms of engagement in the city, particularly where they challenge the official discourses through which cities strive to be competitive spaces in the globalizing economy. This paper offers a theoretical understanding of these limits through two related propositions. First, that urban governance has assumed a post-political configuration; second, and reflecting such a configuration, urban entrepreneurialism is becoming defined by a new style of politics, urban neo-populism. Against the disciplining imperative of creating the competitive city, neo-populism becomes defined around the manufacture of consensus politics, the effect of which is to marginalize protest and dissensus.
    • With or Without You?

      Tripathy, Chetan (National Stock Exchange of India Limited, 2)
      While corporate governance may not dictate the economic prospects of developing countries, it certainly plays an integral role in shaping them. In order to bring in investor confidence, both domestic and international, it is necessary that India as a developing economy with one of the fastest growth rates adopt the best corporate governance policies. Independent directors are looked upon to protect such investors. And their role has become even more significant after the numerous scandals that have hit the corporate world in America and elsewhere. India adopted clause 49 of the Listing Agreement in order to usher in a new era that would help shareholders maintain their confidence and have access to proper information about the company. This paper suggests how such independent directors must be selected and how many of them must be present on a board. With the current scandal on Wall Street in the U.S.A this debate has just begun.
    • Determinants of Conflict in the Philippines

      Roberts, Nancy; Everton, Sean; Tsolis, Kristen; Defense Analysis; Durante, III, Jesus P. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 12-Jun)
      Conflict has many causes. Assertions have been made about the relationship of conflict with several factors based on theories, beliefs and principles. Identifying and explaining the determinants of armed conflict in the Philippines is expected to lead to better comprehension and insights on its resolution. Four independent variables are examined as predictors of conflict: ethnicity, poverty, governance, and literacy. The research primarily utilizes empirical data and projects it in map overlays with the use of the ArcGIS. Bivariate and multivariate statistical models are estimated to derive the relationship between the variables and conflict and to validate the hypothetical claims.
    • 社區治理之理論辯證與實務析探---以我國社區營造政策為例(I)

      行政院國家科學委員會; 國立政治大學公共行政學系; 江明修 (97)
      [[abstract]]在21世紀全球化過程中,各級政府的定位、治理模式與功能,亦逐漸產生變化。社區治理在全球化的架構下也日益重要,加上知識經濟與資訊社會推波助瀾的結果,地方政府扮演著較以往更為重要的角色,不僅須加強與國際接軌,提升城市的競爭力,更須轉化其社區治理的結構,持續促進地方的整體發展。社區治理是一種屬於由下而上的地方民主發展模式,透過地方社區的公民,直接參與、決策及執行的過程,有助於改變政府效率不彰以及與民意脫節的問題。本研究擬以利基於社群主義的社區治理模式為理論焦點,結合文獻分析、深度訪談、實地訪查與焦點團體法,探討社區治理運用在台灣社區營造之實際困難、成功策略與跨域特色,藉此瞭解臺灣社區治理的特質,及其與政策互動的歷程和理論辯證與實踐策略。

    • A Code of Ethics for Air Force Officers

      ARMY WAR COLLEGE CARLISLE BARRACKS PA; Palmer, David G (1973-03-26)
      The US Air Force Personnel Plan lists the establishment of a code of ethics to enhance the image of career officers as one of its objectives. Three basic questions are considered: is a published code required; what should be the essential elements of the code; and, what would the publication of a code be expected to accomplish. Current official publications were examined for ethical guidance for Air Force officers. Congressional testimony of officers involved in the unauthorized bombing of North Vietnam in 1972 was reviewed for ethical conduct and attitudes. Traditional elements of the American officer's military ethic were assembled from a variety of official and unofficial, but generally accepted as authoritative, publications. Past and current attitudinal surveys were examined for trends in the perception of the public and the military of the prestige of the officer corps. The following conclusions were reached: Written ethical guidance is incomplete and unwritten codes are inadequate, resulting in uncertainty of standards among the officer corps; a written code would remove the uncertainty; the essential elements of the code should be the traditional one, but added emphasis should be placed on first allegiance to the Constitution; an established code, if enforced, may be expected to improve internal and external prestige, but more importantly, promote higher standards of professional conduct among Air Force officers. It is recommended that a code of ethics by published, and a sample code is proposed.
    • A New Look at the Code of Conduct

      JUDGE ADVOCATE GENERAL'S SCHOOL CHARLOTTESVILLE VA; Barnes, Holman J., Jr (1974-04)
      This thesis examines the Code of Conduct for Members of the Armed Forces of the United States. The author reviews the performance of American prisoners of war in captivity preceeding the promulgation of the Code and examines the conduct of prisoners in the Pueblo Incident and the Vietnam War. Codal problems are identified in light of these experiences. The Code is reviewed and examined for its compatibility with the Geneva convention Relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War. This thesis concludes by recommending changes in the Code to make it more realistic and more consistent with the Convention.
    • Corporate Power

      Balakrishnan, K (Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, 1980-01)
      Corporate social responsibility is fast becoming a fashionable phrase among businessrnen, managers, management academics, economists, politicians, and the public at large. Before these diverse groups plunge into serious debate on this crucial issue, one could perhaps learn from the long experience of western countries, especially the U. S., on this subject. A detailed scrutiny of a selected sample of western thought showed that two different and distinct groups existed. It was significant to find economists, lawyers,and political thinkers in the former group looking at the corporation mostly from outside, and teachers, researchers,and counsellors to the corporate sector in the latter group looking at the corporation from within. The former group, called externalists, has wielded better influence with policymakers in government and the latter, called managerialists, has influenced decisionmakers in corporations. The four—externalists, government, managerialists,and corporation—have continued to function as two parallel axes: the externalists-government axis almost always confronting the managerialists-corporation axis.

    • General Guide for NOSC (Naval Ocean Systems Center) Civilians Boarding Navy Ships.

      NAVAL OCEAN SYSTEMS CENTER SAN DIEGO CA (1984-02-01)
      A substantial number of scientists and engineers from NOSC visit U.S. Navy ships each year. The manner in which NOSC personnel react and are reacted to depends largely upon their understanding of the seagoing Navy. Going aboard a Navy ship for the first time can be a frustrating experience, especially for the individual who does not have a clear concept of shipboard layout, administrative organization, and expected standards of conduct. This pamphlet has been prepared as a general guide to help civilians overcome some of the difficulties which may be encountered aboard ship. The information provided herein is designed to make your cruise a more satisfying and productive experience. (Author)
