Abstract: Despite the centrality of child wellbeing arguments in the debates on single and same-sex parents vs. two heterosexual parents, there is surprisingly little research on public perceptions of single parents’ and same-sex couples’ parenting quality. We use data from the 2012 General Social Survey to compare and contrast public views of single parents and lesbian mothers and gay fathers. Nearly half of the respondents agree that single parents can parent as effectively as two parents and that gay and lesbian parents can parent as effectively as a male-female couple. Approximately half of the respondents provide similar responses regarding the effectiveness of single and same-sex parents, while approximately one-fourth give higher ratings to single parents and the other one-fourth give higher ratings to same-sex parents. Public attitudes vary across sociodemographic lines: men, older adults, and married respondents are less likely than their female, younger, and unmarried counterparts to view both single parents and same-sex parents as effective. Educational attainment and self-reported religiosity have greater influence on the rating of same-sex parents than of single parents, while race has a greater influence on the rating of single parents than of same-sex parents. Public views regarding both single parents and same-sex parents also are positively linked to preferences for generous childcare policies by the government, liberal gender role attitudes, and tolerance of sexual liberties. When public views regarding both single parents and same-sex parent diverge, however, public opinion regarding sexual liberties is the most influential attitudinal factor. Implications of these patterns are discussed.

Abstract: Contemporary Uganda may be emblematic of two very different continents & countries: from claims to status of developmental state in the South & West to laments about civil conflict in North & West. The gains of HIPC governance are spatially limited by continued violence along the border with Sudan, itself a function of ongoing regional struggles. This paper seeks to situate the problematic Ugandan case(s) in the context of alternative approaches/explanations & policies/projections among state & non-state, local & global actors alike.

3. Schoppa, Leonard. "It Takes Two to Float: the Two-Level Politics of Exchange Rate Policy" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association 48th Annual Convention, Hilton Chicago, CHICAGO, IL, USA, Feb 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2017-10-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p180084_index.html>

Abstract: Exchange rate policy cannot be modeled as a simple product of domestic politics, as Jeff Frieden does in his recent work on this topic. Countries deciding whether or not to go on or off the gold standard may have been able to make these decisions separately based on domestic politics, without coordination or bargaining, and small countries may still be able to do so with regard to the dollar or euro in today's monetary regime. But big countries, including the United States, cannot make exchange rate policy on their own. It takes two to float, by which I mean that it is more accurate to model exchange rate policy as a two-level game in which two partners each seek an exchange rate regime and level that reflects domestic political interests and institutions, with the outcome determined by bargaining. The United States cannot make a decision to float vis-a-vis the renminbi without China going along. Japan has learned that it cannot devalue the yen without the United States blessing this policy. The paper lays out the two-level logic of exchange rate bargaining and illustrates it by examining several cases of United States - Asia exchange rate bargaining, including US-Japan since 1980 and US-China since 2000.
