A Few Political Science Resources of Note

Sep 16 '10

These were highlighted to me via email or in comments on my previous “post”:https://themonkeycage.local/2010/09/things_political_science_can_d.html:

* Two places to find quick summaries of recent political science research: “Abstract Politics”:http://abstractpolitics.com/ and “Wikisum”:http://wikisum.com/w/Main_Page.

* An “international political economy blog”:http://ipeatunc.blogspot.com/ worth checking out (courtesy of my alma mater). Here is “a post”:http://ipeatunc.blogspot.com/2010/09/magicians-and-greek-debt.html on the Greek debt crisis which notes how Papandreou’s invocation of an IMF mandate to push through reform is consistent with political science on using international institutions for “domestic political cover.”

* “Journalist’s Resource”:http://content.hks.harvard.edu/journalistsresource/. A project of the Shorenstein Center that promotes research potentially of interest to journalists. Here is “their page”:http://content.hks.harvard.edu/journalistsresource/pa/government/politics/ on politics. A useful notion to build on. [Hat tip to Michael Baranowski]

* The blog “Learning About Politics”:http://www.learningaboutpolitics.com/, run by two political scientists. Recent posts on the “Ground Zero Mosque” and the 2010 elections.
