Conférence de Christopher Wlezien

Christopher Wlezien inrerviendra sur le sujet CThe ‘Timeline’ Method of Studying Electoral Dynamics

Abstract : To study the evolution of electoral preferences, Erikson and Wlezien (2012) assess the correspondence between pre-election polls and the vote in a set of US elections.  That is, they treat poll data not as a set of time series but as a series of cross-sections—across elections—for each day of the election cycle.  This “timeline” method does not provide complete information, but does reveal general patterns of electoral dynamics, and has been applied to elections in numerous countries. The application of the method involves a number of decisions that have not been fully addressed in previous research, however.  There are three primary issues: (1) how best to assess the evolution of preferences; (2) how to deal with missing data; and (3) the consequences of sampling error.  This paper considers each of these issues and provides answers.  In the end, the analyses suggest that simpler approaches are better.  It also may be that a more general modeling strategy is possible, in which scholars could explicitly model the variation in poll-vote error across countries, elections, parties and time.  We consider that direction for future research in the concluding section.

SOMI Conference Securitization of Migrant Integration/Patterns of Mobilization 13 -14 june 2016

The goal of the Securitization of Migrant Integration (SOMI) project is to examine the effects of securitization on migrant perceptions of discrimination - and their subsequent responses in terms of conventional and unconventional political mobilization. Securitization relates to a broad array of measures, ranging from restrictive border controls to neo-assimilationist policies of integration, that commonly construe immigrants and their descendants as potential threats to safety, social cohesion or national identity. These policies have generally elicited negative reactions among migrant communities. Yet many studies treat migrants as passive in the face of such measures. The evidence, however, reveals that they are not. While some groups choose to remain passive, others respond – in a variety of ways. Based on that simple insight, the members of the SOMI project team have attempted to piece together both a description of the ways that different groups react and why they respond the ways that they do.

Attempting to study this dynamic process raises several specific questions that participants to this SOMI conference have attempted to address. What are the levels of acceptance of these policies among targeted migrant communities? What is the impact of perceived discrimination on group identity and religiosity in these communities? And to what extent have discriminatory measures fostered alienation and resentment, stimulating various types of mobilization and possibly even violent protest?

Stem Cells in Translation: the Governance of Clinical Promise in Regenerative Medicine

Organized by EUceLEX WP6: Alessandro Blasimme (Inserm U1027, Tououse 3, & University of Zurich, Switzerland) Adeline Néron (EHESS-IFRIS), Switzerland), Virginie Tournay, Sciences Po/CEVIPOF/CNRS)

Over the last two decades, stem cell biology has grown into one of the most prominent and rapidly expanding areas of science. In the meantime, lightning progress in our scientific understanding of stem cell biology created a widespread expectation to harness its therapeutic potential.

Interestingly, the clinical promise of stem cells has taken shape in a complex landscape of – often conflicting – representations about their biological properties, their clinical translation, their legal status, their regulation, commercialization and provision to the public. In such a context, existing governance frameworks for the use of human bodily elements (such as organs and stored tissue) proved insufficient to contain the medical and commercial promise of stem cell-based regenerative medicine.

The workshop will provide a valuable opportunity for international scholars of different disciplinary backgrounds to connect and engage in fruitful discussions concerning both the specificities of stem cell translational policy and broader trends in the governance of clinical translation in biomedicine.

Conference co-organized by Sciences Po/CEVIPOF, université de Paris II, The University of Sheffield, The Universisty of Manchester , Bournemouth University, and Audencia Nantes.

The conference seeks to contribute understanding to some of the bigger questions facing the discipline. For example: how election campaigns have changed in styles, strategies, tools and with what impacts on voter engagement? Is big data changing the conduct of campaigns and the study of voting behaviour? Are voters becoming less predictable, more changeable and so more open to persuasion? What factors are shaping election outcomes in the digital age, and to what extent?
