It should gain its legitimacy from fair electoral systems. Thank you to everyone who listens to the show. The power of the US Supreme Court means that the US constitution is routinely updated through judicial interpretation. While two parties dominate vote share and seat share in parliament, popularity is only one measure of a party system. The “Old” and “New” Labour factions of the Labour Party existed long before Tony Blair coined the names. 384 International Political Science Review 33(4) bureaucracies … The fusion of powers, the limited opportunities for ordinary MPs to shape law and the curbs on the House of Lords all serve to give the government too much of an advantage. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. Nick examines the various forms of political participation that are available to citizens in the UK, ranging from voting to completing e-petitions. The fact is that sovereignty has multiple locations. Are political parties good for democracy? Or is it fifty percent exactly, representing the approximate percentage of women in the population. As a heads up, apologies if you can hear lawnmowers, text messaging and snoring cats. It varies according to approval ratings, the type of government, national events and electoral mandates. “Eek!” Comparative analysis questions. At its best, the devolved bodies established after 2017 have enhanced local decision making, tested fairer electoral systems and promoted representative democracy. Yet surely there are better alternatives than allowing the loser to win. Hidalgo’s audacity in naming 11 women of 16 upper management deserves applause in that it marks the arrival of women in leadership. Welcome to The A Level Politics Show, where amazing things happen. Nick is joined by his comrade at Reigate College, Matthew Phillips, to discuss, amongst other things, how to ensure your teeth remain as white as Tony Blair’s. The primaries and caucus system in the US is undoubtedly an improvement on what came before, where party candidates were chosen in “smoked-filled rooms”, but that’s not saying much. But it clearly did not sit at exactly half. Sex as such is not liberating for women. It is not the courts that are acting like despots, but the prime minister. What did Hidalgo do? Whether intended to or not, her voice will represent women’s voices, and that is necessarily inaccurate given women’s stake in the world. Issues of political representation in Sweden during the past four decades have been influenced by two processes: the modernisation of the world's second oldest written constitution adopted in 1809 and a struggle over extending democracy. However, the Welfare State consider that the women who have to receive the goods and the services are the “wives” and the “mothers”. There are of course some social factors that don’t appear to matter at all. ... By rejecting persuasive methodologies simply because they have been used to secure the assent of women to the male experience and viewpoint, MacKinnon ultimately dooms her enterprise." Should feminism be established in state institutions to treat women's concerns? In this episode, Nick goes through his checklist of tips for producing fine work. Progressive Era legislation, and the Keynesian macroeconomic policy that emerged during the 1930s Depression, were institutionalized in the post-war period. Regardless of one’s position on Brexit, the last four years has taught us that the use of referendums in the UK is in need of reform. Yet the evidence of the past decade points to a rightward shift on economics and on service provision, while Brexit has empowered the neo-conservative wing of the party to the detriment of centrist schools of thought. Yet class is perhaps just as important in determining election strategy. In this special episode, we look at how different groups of Americans voted in the US election and whether any conclusions can be drawn about why Biden won. In addition, it must be noted, that men still hold dominant positions in public and private leadership, so their investment in gender balance proves crucial. Trump’s appeal to base instincts and to white nationalism are exactly the things that the founding fathers feared. Is it forty percent, the level mandated by the French statute governing the civil service that Hidalgo violated? In many countries, feminists were able to take progressive resolutions won in the UN, and push for change on the national level. No longer would they have to travel to Strasbourg to fight for their rights in the European Court of Human Rights (although they still could), the guarantor of the ECHR. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled Boris Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament to be unlawful, we look at whether the 11 unelected judges of the UK’s top court are too powerful. “Oh dear!” Rights. Yet what of its future direction? Politics should make you feel something - your essays must too. Are elections free and fair? How should the United States Supreme Court arrive at decisions? There are many arguments against giving certain minority groups “preferential treatment”. Despite the assault on the HRA, it remains in place, for now. The experience of Thatcher, that most domineering of PMs, should serve as a warning sign to those who choose to ignore their cabinet. The one startling realisation that I had, after watching 36 hours straight of John King on CNN, is that where a person lives in America really does matter. More than 40,000 downloads and streams later and we are still going strong. Men control positions of official power and men's interests determine how that power is exercised. Introduction. Then let the battle commence! (PAPER 1), Nick examines whether the checks and balances contained in the US constitution are effective in avoiding tyranny and in encouraging bypartisanship. Oh, and well done Nayan Patel, whose imagery of the man standing up to the tanks in Tiananmen Square is ably reenacted with Lego. Do people participate in politics and accept that the government has legitimacy? Finally, while public support is important, government support is critical to the success of any cause. We discuss whether direct or representative democracy is better. In March, following another case of femicide, online users highlighted the link between gender-based violence and child abuse, particularly in instances when COVID-19 restrictions were accompanied by an increase in domestic violence. Don’t worry, it will all make sense when you give us a listen. State feminism was concerned primarily with women's public eman- cipation, but little concerned with their private lives as women. Mazur, Amy (ed.) He argues that they do neither. Yet it turned out the people were wiser than the Electoral College, which gave us nativism (Trump) instead of wise albeit flawed experience (Clinton). Feminism has no theory of the state. The role of money and the media, both of which are needed to appeal to a mass electorate, has not resulted in the testing of presidential qualities. In a very real sense, the project went from marxism to feminism through method to analyze congealed power in its legal form, and state power emerged as male power. One alternative, the NPVIC, gives us that assurance and deserves our consideration. (PAPER 3), Comparative: Devolution versus federalism, While traditionally the states in the US had far greater control over their affairs than the regions in the UK, devolution is beginning to change things. Labour: Has it returned to its ideological roots? Feminism, Marxism, Method, and the State spurious idea of freedom: the right of each person, briefly, to exploit and dehumanize someone else. It seemed to merely confirm the rights that had already existed - those written into the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This situation is a far cry from the era of hung parliaments, when the cabinet re-emerged as a force to be reckoned with. The answer to the first three questions is no, and the answer to the last one is not enough. Yet it is important get out of the Westminster bubble. Without a change in the very norms of sexuality, the liberation of women is a meaningless goal. Furthermore, the increase in partisanship has stymied attempts to properly investigate the executive branch, as Trump’s recent impeachment acquittal demonstrates. It refers to any actions, especially organized, that promote changes in society to end patterns that have disadvantaged women. The problem with one woman is that it’s too little: she necessarily plays a token role. Progressive economists sometimes view state and market relationships after World War II as relatively ideal, with the state supporting economic activity and helping the market economy thrive. Yet many of these checks are either underused or abused for political gain. So if you get to the end of this podcast and feel angry then good! In doing so, it is important to examine the powers of each chamber, their status in relation to their sister chambers and their capacity to check the work of the executive. Whoop whoop! Clinton won three million more votes than Trump in 2016, but the current arrangements barred her from becoming the first female president. Or will regional assemblies better represent the people? Nick argues that from ending it, we should be mending it. Feminism: Patriarchy Patriarchy refers to a society dominated by men i.e. We hope like the new jingles. Referendums are not the answer, but Nick argues that other forms of direct democracy could complement representative institutions and strengthen democratic legitimacy. Yet in giving UK citizens to the right to use UK courts to seek redress of grievance, legal avenues to claim rights came closer to the people. (PAPER 3), After the Lib Dem victory in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, held as a result of a successful recall petition of its MP Chris Davies, Nick looks more closely at whether the Recall of MPs Act 2015 is beginning to find its feet. For the sake of debate, I take the side that the court is too powerful, but I agree with my esteemed colleague that the UK judiciary is only as powerful as Parliament lets it be. To do this, we break it down into constitutional, judicial and political protection and model how you ought to approach writing your answers. Yet the House of Lords is hindered by its lack of legitimacy and the restrictions placed upon it, and with the restoration of a large majority in the House of Commons, the advantage now rests with the executive. Try these questions on for size: Does Congress look like America? These methods and others like them have been used by all presidents to get lawmakers to do what presidents want them to do. It is far easier to judge success by whether presidents achieve what they set out to do. ... [+] (AP Photo/Christophe Ena). $12.99; $12.99; Publisher Description. Are several forms of democracy present, including direct, liberal and representative, and do they complement each other? We hope you enjoy the show! In this brief episode, we look at the 2019 manifesto for some clues. The former might give elites a bloody nose but can also intimidate minorities, while the latter might allow for compromise yet can create an aloof political class. The key is to ensure that you highlight the arguments that you personally agree with and pit them against the arguments that you don’t. Yet cabinet government is not dead, it is merely sleeping. machineries for the advancement of women’ or ‘gender equality machinery’ within state. And the young voted Tory in 1983. The Senate has huge influence over shaping the makeup of the US Supreme Court and in approving other presidential appointments. However, this book demonstrates that the opposite is true: government has long been a major oppressor of women and their rights. In this episode, we compare the House of Commons with the House of Representatives, and the House of Lords with the Senate. Should we therefore judge a party system by policy influence, or who controls the executive? The House of Commons and House of Lords both have a range of tools with which to hold government to account, most notably the various forms of questioning that takes place on the floors of both chambers and the valuable committee work takes place off from them. Rival power centres, inept leadership and poorly handled events will do for any prime minister and even for ones with a modicum of popularity. Referendums are also a threat to representative democracy. While referendums can legitimate policy, they divide communities. Quotas are great, but everyone needs some wiggle-room, perhaps especially leaders making crucial managerial choices. Yet Corbyn’s elevation as party leader reflects a broader trend, perhaps started by Blair himself when he pressurised his chancellor to spend more on the NHS, of a Labour Party that is moving to the left, where it will likely stay for some time to come. This matches the level of many corporate board quotas, including that of France, that mandate a forty percent floor for men or women. Indeed, it makes an example of the overinclusion, and marks that feminist laws advance gender balance and sex equality for all sexes. Because feminists have criticized public/private distinction, feminist state theory must take this distinction into account. If the latter is the case, the UK has only one dominant party. Or being invited to a White House dinner? If you like us then please leave a favourable rating and review on whatever platform you use to get your podcasts, so that more people can find us. A gender balance rule works in part by protecting men from potential exclusion. The goal is not solely to advance women, but to advance advance sex equality more broadly. One can make the case, as Hidalgo does, that one municipality’s overinclusion of women should not matter when nearly all over-exclude women. Removing caucuses, super delegates and closed primaries could all improve the current process and lend greater legitimacy to the candidates who go on to compete in the general election. While mimicking America is not fancied by either host, there are certainly lessons to be learned from many other countries. While print media, television and opinion polls all have a role to play, the part played by social media has grown significantly. US Congress - is the Senate the more powerful chamber? In this episode, I try (badly) to introduce you to the “disagree/agree” sandwich format of writing ideologies essays. How important is presidential persuasion? / ˈfem.ɪ.nɪ.z ə m / us / ˈfem.ə.nɪ.z ə m / the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way, or the set of activities … Imagine receiving a call from the US President?

Proponents of this view argue that “need” is better than “neatness”. Would state funding resolve this issue? It’s hard to believe that this is the 50th episode of The A Level Politics Show. A fine of that scale could only be for a truly grave violation of the law. Many of her earlier cases emphasized ways in which men suffered from sexism. Indeed, it makes an example of the overinclusion, and marks that feminist laws advance gender balance and sex equality for all sexes. Nick strongly argues that they are simply doing their job. Of course, there is a third option - continue with the patchwork of random institutions that are created as and when the government sees fit. Feminism has been widely thought to contain tendencies of liberal feminism, radical feminism, and socialist feminism. It also exposes the sheer laziness of those who exclude women claiming there aren’t enough qualified ones. In a literal sense, patriarchy means rule by the father. The founding fathers gave many powers to Congress in a bid to overcome tyranny. I am a professor at Haub Law School at Pace University, where I teach Contracts and Corporations. discrete, conceptual and applied, became possible as the state was seen to participate in the sexual politics of male dominance by enforcing its epistemology through law.

The best pic gets to be The A Level Politics Show icon for a week. U.S. feminism emerged from several of … (PAPER 1), Nick takes issue with how rights are protected in the UK, dismissing the idea that the country’s rights-based culture is strong enough to withstand the draconian tendencies of powerful governments. As feminism has a theory of power but lacks a theory of the state, so marxism has a theory of value which becomes class analysis, but a problematic theory of the state. How important was race, especially when considering the summer of protest, the Black Lives Matter movement and the killing of George Floyd? The Covid-19 outbreak has understandably seen crisis management centralised in the hands of the prime minister and the cabinet. (PAPER 2). We hope you like the new icon - a Lego White House built by my own fair hands (aided with instructions from the Lego company itself). It would also be foolhardy to ignore non-social factors, particularly valence. On the one hand, Classical Liberals see societal pressure as deeply constraining, while on the other Modern Liberals believe that individuals can only be truly free if enabling conditions exist for that to happen. ‘State feminism’ is a term that has emerged to describe ‘women’s policy agencies’, ‘national. Ginsberg’s own record of litigation and jurisprudence supports this reading. It has a theory of power: sexuality is gendered as gender is sexualized. Thankfully, there are some reforms that might help. (PAPER 1), While FPTP is held up as promoting strong government and stability, the evidence of the past few years has shown otherwise. Do elections change anything? It is, critics claim, unAmerican, unfair, unnecessary and unworkable. In this episode, we consider the theory of where power lies, both legally and formally, and the political reality of where decisions are actually taken. Yet don’t discount Parliament just yet. (PAPER 3). Given that women increasingly hold a dominant number of higher education degrees in most developed countries, it would not be such a far-fetched fear on men’s part. We examine the voting age and whether it should be lowered, compulsory voting and convenience voting. The United Nations historically has been important for feminist gains. But who would write the document? The purpose itself was in fact to provide equal opportunity to all sexes. In short, referendums are an entirely unsuitable way of making political decisions. Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo received a fine of 90 thousand euros from the French national government. Whether anyone can understand it is another matter! Prior to my academic career, I spent a decade in practice, largely working on international arbitration at both Clifford Chance and Skadden Arps. Yes, powerful presidents might not need to persuade, but most presidents are not powerful for long. What he might have been alluding to is the lip service that all Tories pay to One Nation principles or “compassionate conservatism”, just as leaders in India give a nod and a wink to socialism. Yet it is also right to acknowledge that asymmetry, coupled with the long-standing Barnet formula, has not produced universal love for the new political landscape. The Politics of State Feminism addresses essential questions of women's movement activism and political change in western democracies.The authors—top gender and politics scholars—provide a comparative analysis of the effectiveness of government agencies and women's movements regarding women’s policy issues—if, how, and why they form a kind of state feminism. Many feminists have believed that government is the natural ally of the women’s movement. Yet the ideological distance between the two main parties and an utter refusal to compromise on even the most basic proposals has lead to gridlock, bitterness and dysfunction. That meant that the five men composed just over thirty percent, which violated the rule of the French Civil Service Ministry. Ultimately, each election is decided by a unique set of factors. It is conventional wisdom that the US constitution is difficult to change while the UK’s uncodified and unentrenched arrangements are more flexible. The 2019 general election will reinforce that trend. Meanwhile, the use of referendums to create new institutions in the UK, the most notable being the Scottish Parliament, makes it politically impossible to abolish them. Nick looks at the inbuilt tension between the US government and the 50 states. Male and female are created through the erotization of dominance and submission. We take a look at those awkward 12 mark questions (Edexcel exam board) and give plenty of tips on how to approach them, and then compare the arrangements for protecting rights in both the US and UK. While an English Parliament should be seen for what it is - a reactionary and narrow-minded attempt to shut people out of decision making - regional assemblies would do the opposite. We also explore the complexities of class and income, along with voting along religious lines. (PAPER 1), Nick looks at conservative attitudes towards society. They can entrench what needs to be overturned and delay what should be speeded up. In this first episode of our new series, Nick delves into liberalism (PAPER 1), and whether modern and classical liberals agree about the role of the state. What it does is at once provide opportunity to the excluded with a floor for both genders and “protect” each gender with a ceiling for the other.

Indeed, the case for affirmative action is stronger than ever, given the institutionalised racism of the US justice system and the permissive culture of white nationalism that has been promulgated by Donald Trump. Yet the House of Representatives still matters hugely as a result of its co-equal legislative power. (PAPER 1). While in the US, federal institutions have as much chance as influencing policy as the states. Yes, we get laws passed, but are they any good? To be truly representative, parliament should not only resemble the people it serves. Instead, the greatest concern to members of the House of Representatives now comes from the threat of a primary challenge. State feminism. Is the US Supreme Court a political rather than a judicial institution?

The late, great Neill McNaughton defined a democratic deficit as “features of the political system which do not conform to, or fall short of, the normal criteria for a true democracy.” It is therefore important to understand what the features or criteria for democracy ought to be and to judge the UK political system against them. Is there enough pluralism? Her upper management in the Paris city government included 11 women out of 16 total positions. Goldilocks has the right answer: it’s somewhere in between.

Michael Foley argued that prime ministers seek to separate themselves from the forces of constraint, be it parliament, cabinet or their own party. What is the right number of women? Indeed, some early Republican reformers were wary of the Westernizing aspect of modernization, fearing that encouraging women to be active in public Forgive our talks about tea and hotdogs - we knew not of what we were doing. Thus, the icon for this episode is adorned with your winning entry. It is time, I argue, for a federal UK. Yet the backlash against a so-called rights culture has been severe. Hidalgo’s defense echoes Ginsburg’s line: decision makers must “promote women with determination and vigor because the gap is still very big.” It’s a fair point, because in France women are still sorely underrepresented in civil service leadership positions, with only 31% of such positions. Feminism and the state While most feminists accept that the state can play a role in ending gender inequality, they disagree on how the state should go about … The problem is this – at a certain point in time, advancing women may come at the expense of sex equality, as it did with Hidalgo’s women-dominated leadership team.
