Research finds federalism still effective against would-be strongmen like Trump - University of Kent

An international project on centralisation and decentralisation in federations – the first major study of its kind – finds that centralisation is not inevitable. Even the United States, where federalism is often seen as being at risk, is less centralised than many think.

A team led by Dr Paolo Dardanelli, Reader in Comparative Politics at the University of Kent’s School of Politics and International Relations (POLIR), measured centralisation and decentralisation in 22 policy fields and five fiscal categories in Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Switzerland, and the United States from 1790 to 2010.

Using mobile applications for social science research

Using mobile applications for social science research | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The use of mobile applications for data collection is becoming increasingly common in the social sciences. There are many examples of their use, such as mapping where people feel happy, Mappiness app, or where people feel unsafe, like the Fear of Crime Application and iExperience app. These tools allow social scientists to tap into people’s experiences as and when they take place, and can address many of the issues faced by traditional survey methods.

Researching... global macroeconomics

November traditionally sees our Exec MBAs working on their Global Macroeconomics assignments, so it’s a good time to highlight our resources for country data and analysis.

For country profiles, check out BMI Research and MarketLine Advantage. (Please be aware that off-campus access to BMI requires a username and password – available from MIRC). There are other sources available too, but these would be our favourites and are generally the most comprehensive. Profiles should provide you with an overview of most areas of interest on a country, including a PESTLE analysis or similar.
