South Africa's history of colonialism and apartheid has generated socioeconomic inequalities that persist today, most prevalently in land ownership. Despite comprising only 9.1% of the population, white South Africans own 72% of land and earn on average 6 times more than their black South African counterparts. However, South Africa may soon witness a substantial change in property rights.
A constitutional amendment regarding land reform, also known as expropriation without compensation (EWC), FSJ Women Comfortable Open Toe Sandals Mules Chunky Low Heels Strappy Casual shoes Size 4-15 USCharles David Womens Oracle Penny Loaferwas recently proposed by President Cyril Ramaphosa and is currently making its way through the South African Parliament. The proposed policy would enable the government to take ownership of privately owned land, without compensating the owners, and redistribute it in an attempt to reverse the inequality in land ownership. TRENDSup Collection Women's Western Inside Zipper Stacked Heel Ankle BootiesThis has raised concern among foreign investors and governments about the future economic stability of the already shaky South African state.
Last semester, we researched three aspects of the land reform debate in South Africa: petitions, domestic (regional) public opinion, and foreign political perspectives.The regional public opinion team used Google Trends data to analyze subnational variation in support for EWC among South African states. The petitions team focused on analyzing public petitions that emerged regarding EWC. Finally, the foreign political perspectives team explored international actors’ motivations for taking a stance on EWC.
While the future of the proposed EWC legislation is uncertain, it may not remain so for long. Geox Womens Sneakers D Airell B Casual shoesECCO Womens Soft 7 Zip Fashion SneakerSouth Africa’s upcoming national election, likely to be called this May, will serve as an indicator of public support for EWC. If the African National Congress - President Ramaphosa’s party - performs well, it may signal that South Africans support the proposed legislation.Aerosoles A2 Women's color Range Winter BootFSJ Women Elegant Slouch Peep Toe Pumps Glitter High Heels Stilettos Formal Office shoes Size 4-15 US Regardless of the election’s outcome, one thing is certain: as South Africa deliberates over potential changes to its property rights landscape, the world will be watching.

I was born in Austin, Walking Cradles Womens Tiger Dress PumpvTexas, but my parents are first-generation immigrants from India. A few summers after I had gotten my first period, my family and I made one of our many trips to see family in India. I had brought my own sanitary napkins, but I struggled to maintain my own menstrual hygiene while in India because of the lack of clean toilets. I wondered what Indian women did while on their periods, especially if they were in even more rural areas. WeenFashion Women's Solid Kitten-Heels Closed-Toe Frosted Zipper Boots, AMGXX126123Victoria shoes Woman Low Sneakers with Platform 09205 BlackI became so curious, I turned to my mom, and finally to my grandma, who told me she used to use a rag or cloth when she was on her period. At that time, I couldn ’t understand how you could keep using one rag while on your period, because in America we don’t have to think twice about it. As I did more research, I learned from UNICEF that 28% of the students in India do not go to school during their period,Arcopedico Womens Leina Synthetic shoesKlogs 3160 Women's Tucker shoes due to lack of facilities and materials.

The power of networks is a central interest for the GEORPE Over The Knee Round Toe Women Boot Heels Stretch Plus Size shoes. We deconstruct indices of global ratings and rankings in order to study their connections and relationships, which reveal information about the power of the indices within the network. How linkages form in this network of indices, how many times an index is used in the creation of another index, and how much weight the information from one index holds in another index are some questions we address.
What does the networked power of global indices really mean for the GIN Project? Alfani A35 Viollet Ankle Booties, Mulberry Suede, 7.5 USBtrada Women Platform Sandals Fashion Sweet Plaid Ladies Summer shoes Bowknot Ankle Strap Comfortable WearFor the purposes of our research, networked power has a much broader meaning than simple linkages between indices. These connections matter, but more generally, we are most interested in the indices’ power to influence the structure of other indices, as well as their power to change actions of real-life actors.

The directionality and overall connections within the network may constitute an index’s power; its ability to generate attention and to affect actors outside of the network space may also lend to its influence.

When I applied to work at Ubongo, I knew that I was making a decision which would impact my summer, but I did not fully understand how much it would alter my trajectory beyond those three months. I was itching to go abroad and work at a company which prioritized education and I found the perfect opportunity with Ubongo.

Eight years ago I moved to Tanzania to teach at a failing international school. This past summer, I went back to Tanzania to carry out my own research. It felt amazing to be back in a country that I love. I had the opportunity of working as a research intern for 10 weeks at Ubongo in Dar-es-Salaam. WeiPoot Women's Pull-On Kitten-Heels Pu Solid Pointed-Toe Sandals, EGHLH006987Men's shoes Leather of The Personality Casual shoes Large Size Yards Fast RedI spent my time assisting with finding curriculum resources, helping to write curriculum for episodes, being a soundboard to the full time staff with early childhood related items and lastly, I was able to carry out my own research that I designed.
My two research questions were 1) What are children’s attitudes on gender and gender roles? and 2) Can Ubongo Programming serve as an intervention? These question emerged because I believe and research also shows that cultural norms that stratify boys and girls are still alive and well in Tanzania.

"In a recent column in The Hill, the authors contend that preserving and bolstering cargo preference requirements — the law requiring U.S. shippers to use U.S. flagged vessels to transport “government-impelled ocean-borne cargo” — is crucial to maintaining America’s standing in international trade, carrying out the nation’s humanitarian agenda, and projecting U.S. military power overseas.
Our Women's Sandals - Sexy Fish Mouth High Heel Thick with Roman High Boots and those of others, including Christopher Barrett of Cornell University and Vincent Smith of the American Enterprise Institute and Montana State University, suggest otherwise."

"Since 2013, over 400 students have been part of Innovations for Peace and Development. They participate as student researchers, summer interns, and research fellows. They come to IPD because they are hungry for research experience. They are eager to engage in the world. And they really want to attain the skills and experiences needed to move into post-graduate careers.
Getting IPD off the ground over the past five years has been a lot of work and has put more than a few gray hairs on my head. But without question, it’s been the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my 15-year career as a university professor. And I hope that, at the end of the day, IPD provides something valuable back to the University of Texas, our community and our state, and helps to realize our university motto: that what starts here changes the world."
