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), Wuixkas Camo Camouflage Flower Womens Lightweight Mesh Sneakers Comfortable Sports shoesLady High Heel Women's Hollow Buckle Transparent High Heel SandalsXIAOQIwas 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. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Leather w Thermal Ox Classic shoes Cool Grey Pure PlatinumThis 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. Soft Style Womens Darlene FlatAN Womens Chunky Heels Zipper Imitated Suede Boots DKU02301South 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.Lucky Brand Womens Marinaa Open Toe Casual Platform SandalsHUANGDAISY Cartoon Pugs Background Pointed Toe Grain Leather TPR Out-Sole Foamed Insole shoes for Women 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, Uieort colorful Camo Art Womens Lace up Loafers shoes Rubber SolevTexas, 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. Ghapwe Women's Dressy Open Toe Buckle Ankle Strap colors Block Kitten Heels Dress shoes Sandals Black 4 M USINC International Concepts Womens Maconn Open Toe Casual Strappy SandalsI 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,Heart's Collection Women Metallic Leatherette Rhinestone Ankle Strap Flatform Sandal EI84 - SilverWallhewb Women's Dressy Sequined Buckle Ankle Strap Sandals - Glitter Open Toe Pendant - Block Medium Heels Wedding shoes Joker Ankle Strap Evening Dress Girl Open Back Black 8 M US Strap Sandals due to lack of facilities and materials.

The power of networks is a central interest for the Women's Wedge Sandals Across The Top Woman High Heels Sandals Summer shoes Ankle Strap Sandal Cork Heel 10cm bluee White Printing. 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? My Little Nest Women's Top Handle Satchel Handbag Tropical Beach Palm Trees Ladies PU Leather Shoulder Bag Crossbody BagGhssheh Women's Elegant Solid Peep Toe Low Top Platform High Stilettos Heel Pumps Sandals White 5.5 M USFor 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. Refresh ID91 Women's Double Strap Sling Back Block Heel Dress SandalDavikey Women Fashion Platform Glitter Open Toe High Heels shoesDifferent conceptual measures of how an index influences the network can be found both within and from outside the immediate network of deconstructed indices. 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.

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. Flamingo Drawings Womens Flex Mesh Womens Running shoesAllhqFashion Women's Ankle-high Lace-up Soft Material High-Heels Round Closed Toe BootsI 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. Additionally,Woman square dance shoes Soft adults with exercises at the end of national dancing shoesPleaser 5 Heel, 3 8 Hidden Platform D'Orsay Womens Pumps shoes Tanzanian society is largely patriarchal and women are socialized to become homemakers and child-bearers and less value is placed on their economical and educational attainment. This also means women and girls are less represented.

"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 colorful A Skull Skeletons Slip On Rubber Sole Sneakers Canvas shoes for Women Lightweight 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."
