NEW ISSUE OF IPSR PUBLISHED
The latest issue of the International Political Science Review (IPSR) for March 2023 (Volume 44, Number 2) includes nine original research articles. In the broadest sense, all of the articles tackle questions of democracy. For instance, Lauth et al. look at deficient democracies and discuss the value of having several subtypes. In another important piece, van Mierlo looks at attrition as a pathway to subnational democratization. With a more direct focus on electoral processes, Maier and Nai map the drivers of negative campaigning cross-nationally, whereas Cheng et al. focus on the link between life satisfaction and political participation. Coffe and Reiser present important new findings that demonstrate that perceptions about women's descriptive representation can influence substantive representation.
The final four pieces by Pless et al., Seaton & Wu, Nakatani, and Zuo et al., look at religious and secular values, the effect of emotions in presidential speeches, how the political decision-making process influences the acceptability of decisions, and how anti-poverty campaigns can trigger political trust, respectively.
