In November three International Relations majors travelled to Philadelphia with Dr. Rebecca Evans to present their research at the Northeastern Political Science Association Annual Conference.  In a panel for undergraduate research entitled “States and Power in Comparative and IR” Clara Kiss presented her paper “Normalizing Regularizations?: A Discussion of Recent Legalization Campaigns in Europe.” Using Belgium and Italy as case studies, Clara explored “the history behind large scale regularizations - commonly known as legalizations in the United States - of illegal immigrants in a European context, with a particular focus on ones occurring in the 21st century.”

 

In the same panel, Hannah Engber presented her paper, entitled “Call and Response: The Effect of Acts of Terror on the Way States Combat Terrorism,” which “compares the ways in which countries that have suffered from terrorist actions combat terrorism.”  And in a panel entitled “The Politics and Prospects of the Middle East”, Rose Tailassane presented her paper “Women’s Political Representation in Saudi Arabia,” which argues that “religion is not the main reason for why women are not allowed political representation in Saudi Arabia.”

 

Dr. Rebecca Evans also presented a paper at the conference, entitled “Explaining Uneven Progress on Women’s Rights in Latin America.”
