Extradition May. 31st, 2006 @ 04:30 pm
Hello there, to follow the guidelines I'll introduce myself and then hopefully someone could help me out :)
My name is Kaeli, I am a 12th grade international law student at a high school in Canada. Currently we are doing seminars and mine just happens to be on extradition laws, and comparitive law.

Here's where I need some help. Though my research has been helpful, the seminar is a required 45 minutes and my information has run into articles of law, case studies and that's about it. I was wondering if anyone had further topics, or personal opinions on the subject to help me out. A media resource (a movie etc) would be fabulous also.

Thank you for your time!

Mainstream responses to critical/postmodern perspectives on IR? May. 15th, 2006 @ 12:49 am
Hi. This is my first post here, so I'll follow community rules and introduce myself: I study combined law & political science at the Australian National University, and am just taking my first IR Theory course (and loving it - I've become a massive IR theory nerd!).

We're just winding up our course now with critical theory and also postmodernism. Thing is, every IR academic teaching in the pol sci faculty here is a critical theorist or a postmodernist. Before all the posties & Frankfurt school fans out there get riled up, I've got no problems with this, but the Third Debate isn't exactly being presented to us as much of a debate. Essentially, I'm asking for help: can anyone point me in the direction of some mainstream IR theorists responding to postmodern/critical theory/constructivist challenges? Or just some articles challenging post-positivism in general?

Thanks for your help. I have tried looking but Google results in some pretty mediocre results. Oh, and I'm not asking for help because I have an assignment or anything - I just want to make sure I'm not brainwashed into being a postmodernist because my lecturer is one ( :

Has anybody been following the controversy over Mearsheimer and Walt's paper "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy"?

Google "Mearsheimer NPR" to get basic info. The NPR site has a synopsis.

I am looking for good blogs about Asian economics, politics, or security that have feeds, or are already on livejournal. Any suggestions?

» european citizenship
any favourites (articles, chapters, books, etc) on the subject? i am contemplating including a discussion of european citizenship in a paper on methods and i am increasingly nervous regarding my familiarity with eu/european citizenship literature.

does anyone here specialize in theory or methodology and feel incredibly isolated from the rest of political science?

Hey, I just joined this community. I'm an International Relations student at Universidade Tuiuti do Paraná (www.utp.br) in Curitiba, Brasil. Are there any other International Relations students here? Or anyone else from the academic area that is interested in participating in an international research project in the IR area?

Does anyone know where I can get some good military- or terrorism related data sets?

I'm taking a research methods class and desperately want to avoid having to do a paper on how wealth affects environmental ideals or some such BS. Unfortunately, most of the data sets we use for the class don't have much good information, so I have to go out and hunt some down myself.
