Questions related to Nationalism
Hi, can any one guide how could we calculate national figure for a health statistic where subnational figures are available but no national figure is reported?
CETSCALE was tested in the 1990s which suggested it was valid and reliable. And it continues to crop up in research, but its empirical validity seems under-tested.
I have worked on a research project for the past 3 years focused on forming a reliable Early Detection Strategy for Dengue Fever. I have a research paper drafted that was accepted into a National Symposium but would like to publish in a top tier journal. If anyone is interested, I would love to collaborate to somehow make this a true possibility. I would be happy to supply a resume as well as qualifications if asked for!
Do we need to allocate the budget on the domestic as well as the natural resources-based craftsmanship to promote green economic recovery, and reshaping business for nature and people?
We assume that every country will possibly have emphasis on increasing their own products, alongside domestic and natural resources-based products will have a huge impact on GDP in post COVID-19.
Discrimination is a topic in many ways. Students at different universities report discrimination in the context of the pandemic. They experience discrimination due to their disability, their social background, their religion, their nationality a.s.o. Do you know research projects that systematically investigate discrimination at universities?
There are inspiring examples of cooperation among nations during the outbreak of Covid 19 as manifested in the Chinese assistance of other nations. Any examples and references on this?
It was in 2015, when 193 countries agreed on 17 common Goals to achieve up to 2030. Three years after the Goals are still measured by outdated aggregated data from National statistics offices.
So we decided to starting a worldwide survey, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Monitor to assessing the impact of each of the 17 Goals on each country:
So we await your kind score on the impact of the SDGs on your country.
Does Norway have some national laws limiting the BAC levels considered "legal" or "acceptable" for driving?
The development of a vaccine for COVID-19 has become a battleground for many countries to prove to the world/their own peoples that their technology is superior and better than the competitors at the international stage. it is always a point of concern when science is serving the political establishment. Russia claimed that they have developed 'the first' Covid-19 vaccine. WHO is raising concern about the validity of this claim and urging Russia to provide sufficient data to back this claim.
Is it possible for the same scenario to be repeated in the US? An election is near and COVID-19 vaccine development can influence the result.
I have a question regarding the communication between a HPLC 2695 Alliance and the PC/Empower software. I know that it works with a BUS/LACe card.
Is it possible to use a GPIB-USB-B connector from National Instruments instead of a BUS/LACe card ?
In 19th and 20th centuries wooden architecture became very popular among researchers and enthusiasts of vernacular culture in Central and Eastern Europe. Numerous texsts by professional scholars and amateurs reflected their general opinions on communities they associated with timber constructions. Many remarks and theories testfied to ethnic tensions as well as heterostereotypes and autostereotypes coined by competing ethnic groups. German scholars, for example, percieved Upper Silesian wooden churches as monuments to original Slavic culture petrified due to the backwardness and poverty believed by them to be characteristic of Slavs. This view corresponded with the myth of Prussian/German cultural mission in the East.
On White Supremacy:
The obsession as to whether human-kind is fundamentally bad or good has preoccupied scholars for millennia. This can be traced back to the Catholic theologian, Augustine (354-430), who believed that men and women are basically bad, all born into original sin, and therefore require close supervision by which to cleanse their souls. In the enlightened age, intellectuals such as Rousseau (1712-1778) came up with the counter argument defending the premise that human-kind is basically good, an ethos that has been adopted by many liberal societies of today even if only by lip-service. We know that if one wants an economy that is maximally uncreative and unproductive, totalitarianism (left or right driven) is the best political system by which to achieve this. Here a minority of the population under its leadership employs all the state’s resources to control the majority under the assumption that the majority has ‘bad habits’ that must be altered and if not possible contained using police-state tactics. Such a society is unsustainable, as we witnessed with the disintegration of the Soviet Union in December 1991.
So, what about White Supremacy. This viewpoint has a long history in the United State going back to the age of slavery [1620 to 1865] when Black people (including their children) were sold and killed like cattle. At its zenith in 1860, some 13% of the US population, 4 million people of a population of 31 million, were enslaved. Shortly after the passage of the 13th Amendment (which was meant to end slavery in 1865) segments of the White population resisted this policy by forming the Ku Klux Klan who adopted an Augustine-viewpoint that led to the mass lynching of mainly Black males that continued well into the mid-20th Century. According to the Equal Justice Initiative (2017), 4084 African-Americans were lynched between 1877 and 1950, mainly in the Southern United States. In the 1960’s three acts were passed by Congress to remedy this bad history: the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Civil Rights Act of 1968.
Now let us fast forward to the Age of Trump (2016-2020). Donald Trump, an Independent, became a Republican so that he could win the presidential election in November 2016. His madness, which includes racism, bigotry, and contempt for women, is expressed regularly via Twitter and Fox News. This madness has now been amplified by the recent killing of an African American man, George Floyd, who was caught on camera being suffocated by a Minneapolis police officer. With Christian Bible in hand and in front of St. Johns church in Washington DC, Trump declared (much like Hitler did during his rallies in the 30 and 40’s) that he would impose law and order on the masses who are protesting the killing of George Floyd. So far, 10,000 protesters have been arrested by police (Aljazeera, June 4, 2020). The ~ 25,000 White Supremacist of America are standing by to see whether Trump can create an opportunity for them to return America to its roots: by having a large segment of the population (mainly immigrant and non-White) be put under the control of a White minority to satisfy (unbeknown to them) the dictates of the Catholic theologian, Augustine (354-430). If you believe in humanity and its sustainability, you can never allow this to happen since this is a recipe to continuous warfare, much like what goes on in the Middle East today.
How would the University of the future be? What would be the students like? What areas would students be learning on? What would the resources be like? Would attendance be required? How would students and lecturers participate in acquiring skills and competencies? What would assessments be like? What competencies would graduates have? How would quality assurance be carried out? Would there be a difference between Universities in small island nations and those in big nations?
Agriculture is the major contributor to the national economy, livelihood and employment since long. However, despite the priority in the national policies, the growth of the agriculture sector is merely around 3% that is not able to contend increasing population growth.
I would love to know- What are the challenges and problems?
Can agriculture still lead the national economy?
Why many national policies and agricultural policies could not help farmers and the agriculture sector?
There are sayings or phrases praising and honoring the mother. For example, Ahmad Shawki, a renowned Egyptian poet said, “The mother is a school, if she is well prepared, you will build a nation with distinction” "الأم مدرسة إذا أعدتها أعدت شعبا طيب الأعراق
Another saying, “The paradise (heaven) is under the mothers’ feet”
الجنة تحت أقدام الأمهات
Do you think such sayings can be held as universal? Do you have or recall similar sayings?
Do you think that finding a better job opportunity is a sufficient justification for emigrating and leaving the nation’s service?
I explore the relation between catholicism and nationalism as expressed in the art. Merging of religious and national contents has become common in Poland. I'm looking for comparable examples from other countries, where catholicism has been used to underpin the national identity or where it has been fit into the national framework, and for relevant literature.
I am looking for empirical evidence on the topic. Id generation Z globally sharing similar values, beliefs and perception of volunteering or national culutr still matters?
I am working on research paper in the environmental sustainability. Kindly suggest the available literature related to this topic.
Is it better for a national economy to have relatively low interest rates to encourage more borrowing or is it better to have relatively high interest rates to encourage savings? Why?
I am trying to build an ephys rig with multiple amplifiers and use the WinWCP Whole Cell Electrophysiology Analysis Program to acquire the signals. In order to do so, I was planning to use a National Instruments PCIe-6353 analog to digital converter rendering 16 channels. I have previously tried the PCIe-6351 board with this software and it worked perfectly but I was wondering if there could be any compatibility issues with the PCIe-6353. Any suggestions will be greatly welcomed!!!
Can we use sentinel animals ,if we can then what would be the troubleshootings being encountered?
Since there is no pepper use of sentinel animals world wide ,is to possible to organize such kind of project at national level?
I think its best approach for livestock revenue enhancement.
Super power nations, why not come together to form a team of medical professionals against covid?
For my thesis, I have a 2 x 2 design. I want to check the effect of nationality. There are 3 main nationalities in my respondents. Is it fine to create dummies for each nationality (eg 1 = germans; 0 = other etc), then run three seperate ANOVA's with each time one of the nationalities as a fixed factor? Or should I should I somehow make a nationality variable with the 3 nationalities in it and run one ANOVA? (If so, how should I do that exactly?)
Judging by most stock markets, "Big-tech" seems to be the success story, yet there are surprisingly few academic research papers written on this phenomenon. We are looking for studies and authors who analyzed this phenomenon as we are trying to forecast the impact of the IT&C sector upon the Romanian national economy.
Any recommendations are most welcome!
We engineers sometime busy in doing research in countless unpractical, non urgent, not beneficial to society like areas for increasing count of our research articles. But we know an engineer is a backbone of nation so he should be much responsive for the betterment of society. We should busy in finding solution for the problems our community, nation is facing.
I am looking these problems/needs of our society where we can develop an engineers land by working for motherland.
Covid-19 provided the added fuel needed by the fire of nationalism/regionalism to gain further strength. Many countries believe that they have to protect the national interest by relying on local resources and expertise. This is leading to a race for the development of a vaccine by many countries. Is this helpful in the long run? Can we find the cure/vaccine faster or we are wasting time and resources.
Last weekend millions of Poles went to the ballots to vote in the presidential election. The election was in many ways a crossroad for Poland, will Poland go down the road of liberalism or continue down the road of conservatism and nationalism? Will Poland rejoin the European family of nations or will they be the travel companion of Hungary on a path towards further nationalism and isolation?
The implications of this elections are many and most of them are related to issues such as the future relation to the EU, the independence of the judiciary, independence of the press and in the long run, perhaps even the future of Polish democracy. I wrote an article on the subject that was published and syndicated in news outlets across Africa and the Middle East and I will share it with you, in case you are not familiar with the subject, I received many comments and questions from readers so I thought it might be an interesting debate. The article can be found here.:
What are your thoughts about the future of Poland, the EU and the issues laid out here in this text? The words is free..at least for now.
Best wishes Henrik
I am currently writing my Master thesis w ith the tilte: Does sustainability correlate on the national and the company level? Empirical evidence from selected country cases.
I struggle to find any relevant literature to set up my hypothesis.
Would really appreciate some help.
What effect does the national system of police training on the effectiveness of cooperation carried out on Interpol platform? Can you describe general assumptions of training in this area?
Identity is a complicated state of human existence, many issues participate in creating it. Cultures, languages, gender, geography and etc.language is a way to distinguish one’s national and cultural identity, but also there are many the speak different language from their actual cultural and national identity.
From the lens of global political environment, National Interest is influenced by intersecting interests that are crossing to each other.
Please I need explanation for this statement with an example.
many research studies on prevalence of suicide behaviors have been conducted so far in different provinces, however, the national study will provide suitable data on suicide behaviors if this item has been included in the project
How COVID-19 influences the development of inclusion in the international and national context? Specifically focusing on exploring the assistive technology as an opportunity for the further development of inclusion with the two following focuses:
--effective e-learning for pre-service and in-service inclusive teacher training;
--the fundamental changes in the perceptions of schools, teachers and parents regarding the application of assistive technology in inclusive classrooms ?
I have searched some of the top ranking nationalism studies journals (Nations and nationalism, SEN -Studies of ethnicity and nationalism, Nationalism and ethnic politics, Ethnicities, Ethnopolitics) and couldn't find any article even touching the complex relationship between nationalism and climate change.
I have only found a small number of mostly circumstantial (casual) mentions of climate change according to the following distribution:
Nations and Nationalism: 8 mentions (including a roundtable, book reviews and an introductory piece written by me).
SEN: 3 mentions (one political theory article, two case studies)
Nationalism and Ethnic Politics: 3 mentions (all case studies) Ethnicities: 2 mentions (2 theoretical articles)
Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism: 2 mentions (including a 2009 article)
Even more worryingly, I have found no mentions of the geo-historical concept of Anthropocene, nor any of its more controversial derivates (Capitalocene, Occidentalocene, Consumerocene, and so on), despite the fact that these have been introduced and debated in nearly all the social sciences.
Corona makes the world to move into protective economy. Each country wants to hire their own citizens, send back migrated other nationals, compromise with nationality by keeping it above growth. What do you say?
In Washington State, U.S. we have had two COVID-19 outbreaks in meat processing facilities. These appear to be occurring nationally and internationally as well. Is there any evidence that a relationship exists between domestic livestock and the outbreaks? Looking forward to responses!
Dear Professor Debra Lupton,
I hope you are well,
My name is Dr Shirly Bar-Lev, I am the head of the Health Informatics Research Center in Ruppin Academic Center.
I am researching similar issues in Israel, and would love to think of a cross-national study on the issues you put forward in this project. If collaboration could be of interest, It would be a pleasure to continue this dialogue.
COVID 19 has brought a lot of untold hardships in the world's economy due to the lockdowns imposed by Government around the world. National economies have started assessing the impact of COVID 19 on their national economies. One very important area COVID 19 has impacted is the Scientific community. Currently, all scientific conferences have been either cancelled or re-scheduled using virtual means. In your estimation, what do you think is the impact of COVID 19 on the Scientific Community and how can it be measured?
The World is engaged to end poverty through Sustainable Development Goals 2030 agenda.
The content of the agenda is offered to all countries as a unique solution in the world to eradicate poverty. However, each country has specificities and priorities are different from a country to another. What contribute to ending poverty in one country may not be the same in another country due to the development level gap. Developing countries for instance are facing the problem of financing the content of the agenda. For instance the analysis of gross national income 2018 published in world indicator shows that 25% of the poorest countries have a mean GNI of $ 2 926; the next 25% have mean GNI 9685, the next 25 % have mean GNI 21 045, the highest GNI observed in the last 25% have a mean GNI $ 52 201 . At same time all indicators differ accordingly.
It is not the fact that they don't see priorities, but they don't have enough resources to implement the content of the agenda.
If we do not consider the pandemic coronavirus (in the absence of COVID'19), do you think that the solution proposed to eradicate poverty can have same impact on the same level in all countries?
So I am writing about hate speech and chose two case studies from Denmark and France.
And what I found is that hate speech is heavily influenced by nationalism but my supervisor told it is broad and too obvious and I already finished writing. Please help
Recently, the editor of an- free of charge- international journal wasted our time. She woke up after 4 months by our inquiry; "how long it takes to provide us with the first feedback". The reviewers, after 3 working days, answered back, and finally rejected our manuscript. It's not the first time that editors and reviewers do so.
The question, not only from them but from other reviewers, is: have you had been intentionally planned to waste our time due to our nationality and affiliations?
I know many weak published papers -even from known universities and not-sanctioned countries- which I wonder why this is published in journals.
As the world continues to witness the ravaging effects of the Corona pandemic and as people, organisations and nation states hurry to find a cure, adopt social distancing measures and restrict movements and civil liberties/freedoms, researchers in a range of scientific disciplines are wondering what and how they can actually contribute. I am one within such a growing number of enthusiasts in this emerging Corona-related problem areas. I wonder 'what are these problem areas?'
I also wonder what types of research work will begin to emerge as a result of having identified some key problem areas. What new areas of study will we begin to see such that our knowledge and understanding of the virus that has caused the pandemic will be developed?
How (i.e. by using what types of methods) will we begin to ascertain the full impacts of the pandemic on people's lives, organisations and countries of various political, economic and socio-cultural orientations?
I am keen to gather a range of research perspectives, methods and potential categories on the Corona pandemic and new studies that will help to highlight the problem areas and through the use of appropriate methods help in facilitating a deeper understanding and knowledge of how we can help businesses, governments and people to bounce back from such adversity.
I also hope that the efforts will lead toward not only containing but eventually resolving the problems that the pandemic has caused to the daily ('normal') lives of people, the operational capacity of companies large and small and nation states (developed, developing or otherwise) around the world.
This discussion aims to generate a list of differences between patriotism and nationalism as viewed on an individual basis and possibly on a local or a national scale. The main emphasis is on contrast; however, comparison and similarity might also be included. Hypothetical and factual examples or illustrations are welcome.
I am conducting a PhD study on food security governance. The studies on this topic are concentrated at the global, regional and national levels. No studies have been conducted at the local level of governance. I have spotted this gap and now I want to conduct a study at this level. I wonder whether the above objective really makes sense.
How do we identify the culture of a nation-state or a subregion while examining its influence in the broader context of that concerned state’s foreign policy?
This is a fake project based on fake news. Spreading this fake information during an emergency situation, when people are dying and facing so much suffer, is really sneaky. The transmission of Coronavirus disease is proven to be related with particles going through the air, like every other virus that affects the respiratory system. There is not any link between 5G and Coronavirus! Stay away from this project and concentrate on most urgent things, like helping the doctors through donations, avoiding to go outside, and referring only to authoritative sources like OMS and the national health systems.
While almost everyone agrees that the corona virus outbreak is going to have adverse impact on national economies and world economy, how exactly would you measure the impact of corona virus outbreak on national and global economies ?
Let's prepare a list of URLs which provides Cyber Security Guidelines from Genuine sources. To initiate the discussion, I would like to share following URL which provides Cyber Safety Tips Booklet for the Students and Parents. For your information, CyberCrime.Gov.in is the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal of Govt. of India.
You may add such useful URLs to this discussion.
In our country, approval for a clinical trial of a drug is issued by the national expert organization in the field of drug circulation (which is an analogue of the FDA, EMA and issues approval for conducting clinical trials of drugs) and the National Bioethics Commission.
Currently, a situation has arisen that the national expert organization refuses to issue approval for a clinical study of a combination of drugs. It refers to the fact that this is scheme of treatment (i.e. a treatment method) and not a drug. Is it necessary to obtain the approval of a national expert organization for the circulation of medicines (analogous to the FDA, EMA in a country) for a clinical trials of a combination of drugs, or in this case, the approval of the National Bioethics Commission is enough? Or is it necessary to obtain the approval of another expert organization?
Hi, I am graduated from the M.S. program at National Taiwan University. I do have some experimental experiences in my M.S. training. I am wondering whether it is necessary to publish SCI papers for Ph.D. program applications in the U.S. Or would the publication affect the scholarship of the Ph.D. program?
Thanks for your replies and have a nice day
Social exclusion is process by which certain groups are systematically advantaged because they are discriminated against on the basis of their ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, caste, descent, gender, age, disability, HIV status, migrant status or where they live. Discrimination occurs in public institutions, such as the legal system or education and health services, as well as social institutions like the household” .
Being an undergraduate student, it is my intent to adopt a theoretical framework for use in my research work entitled 'Teachers' Competences as Determinants of Implementing Basic Cultural and Creative Arts (CCA) Curriculum in Primary Schools' but I'm yet to find an apt theory which can serve as the basis for the discourse of independent variable (teachers' competences) in my project topic. Meanwhile I found a revelant theory (performance theory) - though there was only a little explanation of it in the Nigerian national daily where it was cited in an opinion letter (The Nation: January 31, 2020) but it seems to be firmly grounded in performing theatre and arts which is why I am not sure whether it can be adopted or otherwise.
Kindly offer some suggestions, recommendations and/or tips with regard to my question. Thanking you in anticipation.
I am looking to characterise both the transport systems (e.g. public transport networks, road networks, costs of travel, service reliability, etc.) and land system (e.g. urban density, land use, urban form), in any way possible at a national level. Naturally this will be very high level.
Is anyone aware of such type of metrics?
When we look at the literature, we see the fact that nation states lose their traditional sovereignty, independence and security with the increase of globalization and interdependence. Is this true?
Is it indirectly providing security to states, as interdependence reduces the risk of war? What do you think about this?
I am an Olympic weightlifter myself and I am curious what you found in your results... I currently compete at the national level, but I am hoping to compete internationally with those talented elite someday.
It is asked from a societal perspective. I know some examples like generic substitution, introducing vaccination through pharmacies decrease national health expenses. I am interested to know more about different strategies that are useful.
I'm looking for the approximate dates of introduction of plant species to Europe before 1500 CE. I know the information varies according to the European country but a general date would be already very useful. Is there a general database or smaller national ones?
Thank you very much for the help!
Hello there! I am also working on a similar project for my master's final project. Maybe that we can exchange references or even ideas? Good luck
One of the European Union's integration goals is to create a common European public space. Today, the most effective public sphere is national public sphere. In the context of the European Union, have we moved from national public spaces to European public spaces? Can such a European public sphere be moved? Is this a realistic target?
Thanks for your valuable annual updates on life satisfaction. This Gallup-based study finds that life satisfaction is basically an economic indicator at the national level. I wonder what you think about this finding?

What should be the priority system for government policy?
Given the need to collect a salary, benefits, employ millions, develop policies, enact legislation, provide safety net for healthcare, education, employment, and other investments into our society, build infrastructure, defend borders, assist other nations, invest in science, gather intelligence data, defend the People's rights, Liberties and Freedoms, Defend equality, fair justice for all, explore new frontiers, control financial systems, etc...
Which "systems " should be federalized, vs. run by states or private enterprise?
Should federal tax payers subsidize state governments that overspend by allowing state tax deductions of unlimited amounts?
Where does national defense, infrastructure or healthcare fit in the priority system?
