Governance Volume 30, Issue 2, Apr 2017 1. Title: What scholars must do in a time of norm regress Authors: Buxton, Julia. Abstract: The article discusses the political rhetoric and exchange a key indicator of underlying norms in any society that enjoys free speech. It notes the unexceptional cases of misogyny, racism, homophobia, antisemitism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia, outmoded as political correctness. It explores the confidence in the liberal project following the collapse of the Soviet Union through programs exporting the institutions of liberalism and liberal democracy, peace, and global interconnectedness of capital, markets, cultures, and people. Also noted is the exclusivist right wing movements in Central Europe which have amplified grievances linked to economic disenfranchisement, sociopolitical alienation, and too rapid movement. 2. Title: Transparency in Trump's America Authors: Fenster, Mark. Abstract: The article explores the transparency of the U.S., noting that its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which has served as a model for much of the activism, might be departing under the administration of President Donald Trump. The author points Trump's lack of government experience and appears disinterested in prevailing ethical and governing norms. The author notes that Trump and his compatriots among right-wing populists have ignored the democratic will by secretly abandoning national traditions. The author also discusses what he claimed two meanings of contrast between the wave of populism and the open government movement. 3. Title: A Modest Defense of Politically Engaged Best Practices: The Case of Legislative Strengthening Authors: Guinn, David E.; Straussman, Jeffrey D. Abstract: Critics of donor-funded democracy promotion claim that these programs are frequently designed to reproduce social and governmental models drawn from developed countries and imposed on the recipient country without regard to local conditions, with experts parachuted in to provide guidance based on international 'best practices.' The critique focuses on first-generation development with a neutral, technical focus, whereas democracy promotion has evolved toward a more politically engaged approach to programming-what we label as second-generation and, more recently, third-generation development practices. We apply this distinction to the area of legislative strengthening (LS) by describing its history from the post-World War II period to the present and provide examples of LS projects to support the argument. The challenge is to combine valuable insights from best practices from decades of experience while adapting them through political engagement with local partners and with bilateral donors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
