Discuss the importance of PLA as a political institution in China since 1978 (25m)The PLA arguably plays an importance role in defining China, being one of the three political institutions that rule China- namely the PLA, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Chinese state. This tripartite relationship surely means that no sector is redundant and every institution has its own roles and has a certain significant value. In this question, we will address if the PLA is of great significance to China- which I believe is true to a certain extent but yet its progress is limited by the CCP. CCP is still known to call the shots and make decisions for the PLA, and thus it has very little prerogative

Political fallacies are a prominent aspect of the Canadian political landscape, from John A. Macdonald?s railway scandal, to the recent significant underestimation of the gun registry cost. In each case the initial policy framework attempts to combine personal political ambitions with political policy, a mixture which proves to be insoluble to public approval. In the 1960?s, Canada was introduced to a new type of political leader, a person who was not afraid to mix emotion with policy, who preferred indecision as opposed to compromise . Pierre Elliot Trudeau, Canada?s most popular Prime Minister, left a significant mark on the Canadian landscape. A trademark for change, Trudeau opened

Among the many political and social changes that took place ensuing World War II the colonial states declared their independence. As Samuel Huntington describes in "Political Order in Changing Societies" these communities faced many hardships and are still undergoing the difficulties associated with gaining independence. Tension becomes increasingly severe with the topics of ethnicity, language, region, tradition, and religion. Turmoil regarding these issues ultimately undermines political stability and the ability of new states to effectively govern citizens through a legitimate political institution. The fundamental challenges that new states face are extensive social change accompanied

Slavery was like an addiction that the south could not break. Although it provided economic benefits to both the north and the south, the addiction or “curse” bound the people to the downfalls of slavery as well. Slavery created an oligarchy of which a small aristocracy of slave-owners would dominate political, economic, and social affairs of both blacks and whites. The institutions negative impact on the South, and even the entire nation would eventually lead to a great tragedy: the civil war.
Although the institution of slavery oppressed enslaved individuals, the effects were felt beyond the large slave population. Often, “the whites of the [southern] region were also touched by an

In the South during the antebellum period, slave holders in the south defended the institution of slavery using social/political, religious/ideological, economic, and even scientific evidence to defend slavery, nearer to the end of slavery they were more fervent in their defense of slavery because as they years went on the abolitionists of the north were more fervent in abolishing slavery. Earlier, closer to that start of the antebellum period, they simply claimed that slavery was a political evil not a crime, and thus should not need to end. Slavery was a profitable business and it was around for a long time so southerners did not want to do away with it. Latter on during the antebellum

, “Mistress, in teaching me the alphabet, had given me the inch, and no precaution could prevent me from taking the ell”(80). Knowledge was dangerous at this point in time. When Douglass taught slaves to read, he helped them gain some knowledge of themselves. He could also gain knowledge that his slave master did not want him to know such as roads or things that could aid in his escape. Douglass being able to read was significant because it made him an empowered black man. If Frederick Douglass never learned to read, he would not have been the political activist he was. He would have probably never escaped nor would he have shared the knowledge he gained.

Bank. This type of influence ultimately affects how the World Bank functions within a global political economy.
It is essential to first understand the purpose of the World Bank and how it came to be, before assessing its role in the global political economy. The World Bank as a Transnational Expertised Institution is one of the most important sources of knowledge for development and poverty reduction. The World Bank was created by planners at Bretton Woods in 1944, together with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), as the public sector and intergovernmental financial cooperative (St. Clair, 78, 2006). The Bank’s purpose was to essentially rebuild post-World War II Europe. However, today

Practically the independence of the Public Protector is compromise in the event that interpretation of the findings is in favour of individuals in power instead of the people.

In promoting freedom and equality, democratic countries throughout the world have been recruiting and admitting women into their armed forces. By opening the doors of a highly patriarchal institution to women, governments are said to be upholding gender equity and equality. However, the enlistment of women in the armed forces remains a heated subject of debate and controversy, given that women, across sectors and ranks in the military, continue to experience institutional-based discrimination.
The Convention on the Elimination of all forms of discrimination against women (CEDAW) defines discrimination as “any distinction, exclusion, or restriction on the basis of sex which has an effect or

THE INSTITUTION AND IBy Jacob Anderson'Paranoia is an illness I contracted in institutions. It is not the reason for my sentences to reform school and prison. It is the effect, not the cause.' Jack Henry Abbott's famous words are the basis for this article. It is why we ask sometimes if institutions really do stand to achieve rehabilitation? Or do they just neglect their visitors?The purpose of an institution is to restore a person to normal life. An institution is any place of change; a hospital, rehabilitation clinic, prison or any place established for the promotion of a particular object. A recurring problem and effect of modern day prison institutions is the revolving door effect

, however, we see that the institution of autocracy began to falter while the institution of serfdom among the peasantry was amplified. This can be attributed to the fact that both Peter I and Catherine II implemented changes that were narrowly focused on elite groups and therefore did not penetrate the full spectrum of social strata. In consequence, by the end of the eighteenth century, social structures were noticeably unbalanced: the state had less control on the gentry, who in turn secured a tighter yoke on the peasantry. In light of these long-term historical developments, then, this paper attempts to examine three questions. First, did the institution of autocracy become strengthened or

, and society forced withdrawal. The first, being the rarest of the three, does not apply to either Chile or Brazil. During an implosion, the authoritarian regime’s economic, political, and social policies led to government failure and the military becomes discredited as a political and social institution of the state. While that does not mean the absence of a standing military, it does mean a rapidly and largely discredited institution whose voice lacks credence. A government led withdrawal, on the other hand, as in the case of Brazil, is when the military sets a date for a government transitional period to begin. Lastly, a society force withdrawal occurs when civil society forces a military to give up power, as in Chile. This is not an implosion of a state and rather occurs through democratic means.

Although Lincoln personally believed slavery to be an unfair and immoral institution, he claimed that he "was not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of white and black races," because he believed that keeping the Union together was more important than his personal beliefs. However, as the Civil War progressed, Lincoln was forced to re-evaluate his position on slavery and was enabled him to put forth what he had always personally wished for in the Emancipation Proclamation.Before entering presidency, Lincoln had established in his presidential debates with Douglass that he was not advocating the abolishment of slavery, but merely

It is from this perspective that I understand gaining admittance to your college will definitely open many doors of opportunity for me. This therefore leaves me with my completed application, which comes from my desire to take an opportunity at hand. This is mainly because I want to seek out an opportunity that I may never have again.

On the other hand, there is an identification of comments that, vindicating youth political identity, discuss about specific aspects of the students’ struggle such as the (in) dependence from political institution, the refoundation of the political economic system to ensure fundamental social rights, the continuity of memories that orientate the future action of the movement, among others. Having said this, it can be summarized that the construction of counter informative flows within social networks situates students as legitimate negotiators capable of cope with the negative hetero-representation and who are able to represent themselves positively with the purpose of drawing meanings and far-reaching group links for their collective action.

From his inauguration in 1861 to his assassination in 1865, Lincoln was faced one of the most troublesome times in the History of America, having to deal with an institution of slavery that was destroying the American Union and leading the country to its demise through a civil war that resulted in thousands of casualties.

is only certain that we may not prevent the institution of a public order or make the existing legal system totally powerless. Under these exceptional circumstances, the collective duty, which only implies an ethical obligation for individuals, bestows a right on some individuals to take the initiative to impose a public order on others or, without the support of valid law, to enforce some changes in a given, but unjust, political order. In a state of public injustice, specific individuals who feel responsible for the public benefit have a right to exert a form of political violence that is not yet, or not any longer, in accordance with the legally defined and monopolised official mode of

was continually redefined, as the nation moved toward political and economic independence.Berlin argues that despite an inherent power imbalance, slavery was a negotiated relationship between slave and owner. Even in the worst of circumstances, slaves always held a strong card: the threat of rebellion. Through this negotiation, slaves not only carved out an independent social sphere from sundown to sunup, they created their own world under the owners' noses from sunup to sundown as well.Additionally, slavery itself continually changed, and hence the terms of the relationship frequently had to be renegotiated. Slavery was not a static institution, as many historians have portrayed it

Today the United States of America is one of the most economically developed, politically stable and a socially mobile countries in the world. Back in the early 1600s, when colonies were just established in America, people were busy settling their lives and developing new institutions in order to bring their lives to higher standards, such as giving opportunities for people to move up the social ladder, laying a foundation for democracy, and establishing the cash crop system and extensively trading with the rest of the world. To a great extent, the foundation for the United States, which ultimately made her so advanced, was provided by the social, political and economic institutions

Deductive theories begin from a relatively small number of basic postulates or assumptions accorded to universal status and then apply these assumptions to the study of specific phenomena. Inductive theories, on the other hand, begin with observations of specific phenomena and attempt to derive generalisations from these observations which can be combined into a more general theory.The Neo-Institutional approach to policy is one of three major deductive theories, the others being Public Choice and Class Theories. Essentially, the approach recognises the limits of individual and group-based theory to deal with political phenomena. Neo-Institutionalism is a relatively new term

Voting is a political liberty of many law-abiding citizens of the United States of America. In terms of voter turnout and voting behaviors, there are two rival schools of thought. This research will examine what factors cause youth voting to be lower than that of older voters. The first school of thought, which can be referred to as conventional wisdom argues that persons under the age of thirty are least likely of all age groups to vote because they feel indifferent in regards to political practices. This causes them to turn out in drastically lower numbers than any other group. The second school of thought suggests that youth voters are not necessarily uninterested with the political

The political strife of that time, as well as the increasing political attacks on the institution that contributed to it, were reflected in the art world's increasing ambivalence towards its own institutional traditions--that is, the long-standing bourgeois paradigm of art. The Land Art movement, which began in the United States, emerged from this 1960s art world as a response to the heightened political activism of the time and the emerging environmental and women's liberation movements.Although resistant to being seen as part of any distinct movement, the first major Land Art artists--Michael Heizer, Robert Smithson

A leader of any sort, in office through election or use of force, who adheres to this sort of government institution, can do little to no good for their country. Such an institution does not have to stem from an individual; “weaker groups could agree to institutions that exclude or punish the interests of groups” with whom they disagree, especially if the opposition wields more economic or political power (Gibson 12).

As these forces happened, it had an effect that was perceived as adaptations to current events and new ideas within a fixed institutional structure and mandate.

In fact, one of the primary (and perhaps the most important) engines of historical change has been the constant transformation of the political state. Since our lexicon evolves to adhere to our present day needs, the word court has had to alter its implications to suit the political climate of the moment. At one time, using court in the context of a place where people would be found to be innocent or guilty of a crime would suggest a place where a monarch would decide the fate of the accused.

Throughout Pride and Prejudice, there dwells the omnipresent theme of marriage. Opinions on this complex subject vary from character to character in Jane Austen's book, but one aspect remains the same -- the notion that the institution is a necessary step in the economical and political maturity of a young adult. This idea is present in all of Austen's characters. Some, like Jane and Elizabeth, believe rather strongly that love, or companionship, is an integral part of marriage, while others, most notably Mrs. Bennet, view the institution solely as a means of enhancing one's station in life -- love is of secondary, if any importance.Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance
