Constituency Level Politics: A Case Study of The Co-operative Commonwealth Federation and New Democratic Party in Brantford, Ontario

Szmigielski, John Joseph Walter January 1977 (has links)
<p>This study analyzes the development of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation and the New Democratic Party in Brantford, Ontario from 1932-1975. Other scholarly work done on the C.C.F. - N.D.P. has tended to concentrate on general - federal, provincial - levels, rather than on the individual constituency level.</p> <p>The thesis argues that even though the Brantford C.C.F. proposed programmes embracing doctrinaire socialism, the Brantford N.D.P.'s policies have been overwhelmingly influenced by the managerial strategy of winning elections. The trend has been underlined with the advent of the Makarchuk Blackburn era (1965-1975) in Brantford wherein party fortunes began to rise. The thesis further argues that the C.C.F. - N.D.P. is unique in Brantford primarily because of its candidates, Mac Makarchuk and Derek Blackburn. By virtue of their backgrounds as middle class communicators, the Brantford N.D.P. has become more professionalized and subsequently more respectable and successful locally.</p> <p>In conclusion, it is argued that the chief difference between the Brantford C.C.F. and its counterpart, the N.D.P. has been a question of approach. When the C.C.F. sought to 'educate' the electorate through the use of doctrinaire platforms and labour candidates who preached rather than campaigned, the N.D.P. adopted the strategy of winning elections with middle class candidates and solid, issue-oriented election campaign.</p> / Master of Arts (MA)

The Colonial Elephant in the Room: An Examination of North-South Academic Partnerships

Dufesne, Erin 08 1900 (has links)
<p>International collaborations have been steadily increasing in frequency as academic institutions in the global north and south continue to make connections with each other. However, the rate of our increasing interaction is outpacing the emergence of a structural analysis aimed at minimizing the power imbalances inherent in the colonial relationship between the global north and south. As actors within international social work continue to participate in collaborations tainted by professional imperialism and epistemological hegemony, we continue to disadvantage those in the south through the formation and implementation of these partnerships. The exploration of this topic is primarily informed through the use of the author's critical reflection of an academic seminar she participated in during the summer of 2004 in Malawi Africa. It is hoped that the subsequent analysis can be used as tool to inform the development of truly equitable international partnerships.</p> / Master of Social Work (MSW)

Some Considerations of Democracy and Science in the political Philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Giannis, Vassilios January 1976 (has links)
<p>This thesis is a comparative study of Rousseau's Premier Discours and-Du Contract Social. The essay will attempt to establish the thesis that science is both indispensable and dangerous to a democratic order. Democracy, we assume, presupposes self-restraint, more specifically, the self-restraint of the few best citizens. The question then is-·does science support those virtues by which men may be persuaded to serve democracy or, quite the contrary, to destroy it?</p> / Master of Arts (MA)

Political Involvement: A Case Study of Urban Party Activists

Smith, Joseph Patrick January 1970 (has links)
<p>Political involvement is the process of becoming active in the particular political system. One of the most important areas of involvement is the political party. Differences exist among the major Canadian parties that allow them to be placed on a left-right continuum.</p> <p>In this study, the focus is resiricted to activity in local party structures. Four variables of the party involvement process -- political socialization, recruitment, motivation and socio-economic background -- are examined here to see if there are significant differences among the three major political parties in Canada and the personnel that makes up the local executives of their organizations. An analysis of these differences is undertaken to see if they can be explained by the ideological divisions that separate the party associations.</p> / Master of Arts (MA)
