  • Reeher quoted in The Hill article on Biden's COVID-19 vaccine plan

    President Biden announced on Tuesday that there will be enough vaccinations for every American adult by the end of May, much sooner that his previous projection of July. "He has been careful to make clear that he is not saying the whole thing will be behind us by the end of May," says Professor Grant Reeher. "While it is possible to be too optimistic, it is also possible to be too pessimistic," he adds. "I mean, the president does need to give the American public reasons for hope—we have seen that since FDR. I think [Biden] is beginning to do that, and I think now is the time for it."

    Young study on coproduction, digital service delivery published in PMR

    "The impact of technological innovation on service delivery: social media and smartphone integration in a 311 system," authored by Assistant Professor of Public Administration and International Affairs Matthew Young, was published in Public Management Review. Young analyzes whether technological changes to coproduction systems improve effectiveness, and whether improvements come at the expense of equity.

     

    Lambright study on globalizing public administration published

    "Charting three trajectories for globalizing public administration research and theory," co-authored by Professor of Public Administration and International Affairs Harry Lambright, was published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration. Lambright and his co-authors highlight three trajectories. The first is to build generalizable theories to enhance global applicability. The second trajectory is to be more inclusive of diverse perspectives in the mainstream of public administration scholarship. The final trajectory is to scale up the lens of inquiry beyond the nation-state to include global governance actors and organizations.

     

    Keck quoted in CSM article on the impeachment process

    After two tumultuous impeachments of former President Donald Trump in little over a year, it’s clear that today the impeachment process works far differently than the Founding Fathers intended. "What I would emphasize is that there are structural problems with our democracy, some of which are really hard to fix, but some of which have emerged recently which there are fixes for," says Thomas Keck, professor of political science and Michael O. Sawyer Chair of Constitutional Law and Politics. Read more in the Christian Science Monitor article, "Four impeachments, zero removals: Sign of cracks in Constitution?"

     

    Gadarian speaks to WTSP about post-COVID mask-wearing

    Masks are part of our everyday routine right now but will Americans continue to wear them post-pandemic? "There's a cultural norm in China or in Hong Kong and other places to wear a mask when you yourself are sick, but in the U.S. the culture of individualism or individual choice is very strong," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science. "To make people believe they are the experts in their own health decisions and they should do what helps them, rather than the community is a big hurdle to overcome," Gadarian says. Read more in the WTSP article, "Life after COVID: Will people still wear masks after the pandemic?"

     

    Reeher speaks to Newsweek about polarization in Congress

    Professor Grant Reeher says that he doesn't see "a lot of prospects" for Congress to govern in a bipartisan way "in the short term or the near long term," pointing out that the current level of political polarization has been decades in the making. "Ironically, what it will probably take to create more bipartisanship is for one party to establish clear, stable control of an institution," he says. "This happened for a good chunk of the 20th century with Democrats in Congress, and for a shorter period of time, with Republicans in the White House," Reeher explains. Read more in the Newsweek article, "Amid GOP Infighting Over Trump, Republicans Agree on Opposing Biden's Agenda."

     

    Keck piece on the purpose of impeachment published on Syracuse.com

    "The impeachment power’s primary function, in actual practice, is to lay down a marker for history," writes Thomas Keck, Michael O. Sawyer Chair of Constitutional Law and Politics. "Donald Trump has joined Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton as the only presidents to be impeached, and he stands alone as the only president to suffer this fate more than once. Wherever U.S. history is fairly taught, this fact will be noted about his presidency," he says.

    Gadarian quoted in City & State article on Tenney's win in NY22

    In New York’s 22nd congressional district, Republican Claudia Tenney was certified as the winner on Monday, unseating moderate Democrat Anthony Brindisi—who just two years earlier defeated Tenney after her first term in Congress. "If you’re a Democrat who is trying to walk the line in a kind of socially conservative district, I think having to vote on impeachment, having to take positions on budgets—those are now (votes) that your opponent can push against," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science.

    Abdelaaty study on human rights, refugee protection published in IJHR

    "The relationship between human rights and refugee protection: an empirical analysis," authored by Assistant Professor of Political Science Lamis Abdelaaty, was published in the International Journal of Human Rights. Abdelaaty examined the relationship between a government's respect for the rights of its own citizens and that government's regard for refugee rights and found that the relationship between citizens’ rights and refugee rights is modified by economic conditions and the size of the refugee population.

     

    Reeher discusses significance of Trump's impeachment trial in Newsweek

    "Regarding impeachment, polarization has led the two parties to dig in immediately and deeply. Clinton's impeachment is probably a better pure example of its effects," says Professor Grant Reeher. "Trump's behavior has been far more problematic and dangerous to the nation, but I still think that polarization has affected how each party has responded, and it has made impeachment—or defending a president or former president against it—a more likely response," he says. Read more in the Newsweek article, "Impeachment Trials Were Rare in U.S. History, Now Senate Begins Third in Just Over 20 Years."

     

    Faricy explores public perceptions of welfare via the U.S. tax code

    In their new book, “The Other Side of the Coin: Public Opinion toward Social Tax Expenditures” (Russel Sage Foundation), Christopher Faricy, associate professor of political science, and Bucknell University professor Christopher Ellis examine how public opinion differs between two types of economic aid—direct government assistance vs. indirect assistance in the form of tax subsidies.

     

    O'Keefe remembers Shuttle Columbia tragedy on LocalSYR's Bridge Street

    On February 1, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia broke up after a failed re-entry in the earth’s atmosphere and all seven astronauts on board were killed. University Professor Sean O'Keefe was NASA administrator when the tragedy occurred. "The courage that they [the victims' families] demonstrated that day became the source of resolve thereafter that all of us throughout the agency, throughout NASA, relied upon as a way to continually encourage us to do what they admonished us to do which was to find out what happened, go fix it, and then rededicate ourselves to the very objectives in which their loved ones had given their lives for" says O'Keefe.

    Lasch-Quinn discusses Ars Vitae on New Books Network

    Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn, professor of history, spoke with the New Books Network about her recently published book "Ars Vitae: The Fate of Inwardness and the Return of the Ancient Art of Living" (University of Notre Dame Press, 2020). Lasch-Quinn provides a cultural critique that connects the most pressing needs of the individual in modern society to the insights of the ancient approach to philosophy as a way of life.

     

    Himmelreich discusses vaccine verification systems in Brookings piece

    "Building robust and ethical vaccination verification systems," co-authored by Assistant Professor of Public Administration and International Affairs Johannes Himmelreich, was published in Brookings TechStream. "VRV systems present both opportunities and risks in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic," the authors say. "They offer hope of more accurate verification of vaccine status, but they also run the risk of both exacerbating existing health and economic inequalities and introducing significant security and privacy vulnerabilities." The authors argue that VRV systems ought to align with vaccine prioritization decisions, uphold fairness and equity, and be built on trustworthy technology.

     

    Thompson shares her thoughts on Biden, Harris with LocalSYR

    "President Biden served eight years as Vice President, so he was very much involved in the Obama Presidency," says Margaret Susan Thompson, associate professor of history and political science. "He saw things from the inside. But I think one of the things that’s going to make a big difference is his respect for and I think a reliance on expertise in a variety of fields." Thompson also believes Vice President Harris will play a big role over the next four years, especially because the Senate is so narrowly divided at this time. Watch the full interview via LocalSYR.com.

     

    Reeher talks to CNY Central about local benefits of a Biden presidency

    Professor Grant Reeher thinks a Biden presidency will be good for Central New York. "It might make it a little bit easier for John Katko to get the ear of the President if there's a major piece of legislation being negotiated," Reeher says. "We may be on his radar when he's thinking about the problems of small to mid-size cities. Are they getting the help from the federal government that they need? I think that is going to be a good thing for this area." Reeher was interviewed for the CNY Central story, "How CNY could benefit from Biden presidency."

     

    Reeher discusses Trump's legacies in The Hill

    Professor Grant Reeher says that, in terms of policy, one of Trump’s most enduring legacies could be the tax cuts he enacted in 2017. Reeher makes clear he's not asserting that the tax cuts were good or bad, simply that they would be hard to reverse, since the political disincentive to raise taxes is so strong. By contrast, he notes, Biden has promised to instantly reverse or otherwise erase signature Trump policies pertaining to the Paris climate agreement and the infamous travel ban.

    Reeher comments on Rep. Stefanik's career trajectory in Times Union

    Rep. Elise Stefanik’s career trajectory has always followed two paths, says Professor Grant Reeher: astute and methodical political operative and ideological warrior. "I think those two are at a crossroads right now," Reeher says. "What will be the reckoning for her? It depends on what Trump does from here on out, and what she does from here on out." Reeher was quoted in the Albany Times Union article, "Cracks emerge in Stefanik's North Country GOP power base."

     

    Reeher discusses NY's first Senate majority leader, Schumer, with D&C

    Professor Grant Reeher says Sen. Chuck Schumer’s rise to the majority leader role would likely have "some beneficial effect" in terms of money flowing to his home state, though he suggests that could be tempered by how closely divided the Senate is. "It’s not going to be a night and day effect because of how the Senate works and how the numbers are arrayed," he says. Reeher was quoted in the Democrat & Chronicle article, "Schumer nears becoming first Senate majority leader from NY: 'It feels like a brand new day'."

     

    Thorson quoted in National Geographic article on conspiracy theories

    Once people believe something, it can be almost impossible to dissuade them. Emily Thorson, assistant professor of political science, refers to this psychological phenomenon as belief echoes—an "obsessive, emotional response to information that can linger even after we know it’s false." Thorson was quoted in the National Geographic article, "Why people latch on to conspiracy theories, according to science."

     

    Keck weighs in on Trump impeachment in Al Jazeera

    An important constitutional question surrounding a Senate impeachment trial is whether or not it can proceed after a president has already left the White House. "The constitutional text is not clear on that point,” says Thomas Keck, Michael O. Sawyer Chair of Constitutional Law and Politics, adding though, that "most constitutional scholars who study impeachment agree that the trial and conviction can happen after he leaves office."

    Gadarian discusses Rep. Stefanik's loyalty to Trump with NCPR

    On Monday, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who represents New York's 21st congressional district, announced her plans to object during the electoral count on Wednesday. Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science, spoke with North Country Public Radio (NCPR) about the significance of Stefanik's objection to the electoral count and her loyalty to Trump. "I think she's [Stefanik] really kind of set her course as being part of this kind of Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz part of the Republican party at this point, and it will be harder to say, 'I work in a bipartisan way,'" says Gadarian. "That doesn't necessarily mean you'll be voted out, but it will mean that you have chosen sides at this point."

     

    Maxwell faculty speak to the media about violence at the US Capitol

    Several Maxwell faculty members spoke with various media outlets about yesterday's violence at the U.S. Capitol. Professor Emeritus William C. Banks said the fiasco was a "lawless threat" to the country's democratic institutions. "I hope and believe that this pointless and damaging spectacle will further diminish Trump and Trumpism going forward," he told China Daily. Margaret Susan Thompson, associate professor of history and political science, told WAER, "People are disappointed when their candidates lose. There's no question about that, and believe me, I've been on the losing side of many elections. But this has gone beyond that. This has gone beyond to what can only be called fanaticism."

     

    O'Keefe discusses Defense Secretary nominee Lloyd Austin in The Hill

    On December 8, President-elect Biden nominated recently retired four-star Army Gen. Lloyd Austin to be his secretary of Defense, despite the law requiring nominees to have been out of the military for at least seven years. University Professor Sean O'Keefe says that while the nomination of may have surprised more than a few people, Austin "may well prove to be exactly the right person for this tough job at this time in our nation’s history." Read O'Keefe's full commentary, "Lloyd Austin can lead — as a civilian," published in The Hill.

     

    White comments on Georgia runoff election in The 74, La Tercera

    The results of Tuesday's runoff election in Georgia will decide which party controls the U.S. Senate. Even if the Democrats gain control, they’ll still be looking for support from moderate Republicans. "Senators who are willing to vote with the other side will certainly find themselves getting a lot of attention and likely very favorable treatment of any issues that disproportionately affect their states," Assistant Professor of Political Science Steven White told The 74. He also spoke to La Tercera about the runoff election in Georgia.

     

    Abdelaaty examines disparities in refugee treatment

    In her new book “Discrimination and Delegation: Explaining State Responses to Refugees” (Oxford University Press), Syracuse political science professor Lamis Abdelaaty examines the factors that shape states’ responses to refugees. She asks important questions about why some states welcome refugees while others exclude them, and why some states cede control of the asylum process and refugee camps to the United Nations.

     

    Lasch-Quinn talks to spiked about her new book, Ars Vitae

    Why write a book that appears to be calling for greater self-focus, for the cultivation of more "inwardness," when we appear to have a surfeit of damaging self-centered introspection as it is? Because, Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn says, today’s self-obsession entails "a false kind of inwardness. It’s a sham, It’s not the real thing." And this, reviewer Tim Black says, is what makes "Ars Vitae: The Fate of Inwardness and the Return of the Ancient Arts of Living" such vital reading. "It provides both a thorough-going critique of the therapeutic, self-obsessed ethos so dominant today, and a way beyond it, through the potential development of those inner, moral resources on which true selfhood and a moral community rest," he says. Read his full review, "Beyond the therapeutic," published in spiked.

     

    Thompson discusses the possibility of Trump resigning with WPIX

    President Trump could resign shortly before his term ends on Jan. 20 at which point Vice President Mike Pence would assume office and could issue a pardon. "This would certainly be legal, if questionably ethical, especially if there were a prior agreement between Pence and Trump," says Margaret Susan Thompson, associate professor of history and political science. "You’ll recall that Ford pardoned Nixon under similar circumstances, though Ford denied throughout his life that there had been any agreement between him and Nixon."

    Reeher weighs in on Biden healing the nation in The Hill

    "The forces he is up against are much bigger than President Trump and are tectonic in nature. There are a set of forces that push us apart rather than bring us together," says Professor Grant Reeher. But, he adds, "I do think having a period of time for the country to experience the absence of the daily melodrama of the Trump presidency will help." Read more in The Hill article, "The Memo: Biden faces tough road on pledge to heal nation."

     

    White quoted in Patch article on police unions

    Steven White, assistant professor of political science, says one reason it's so hard to fire a police officer, even one who appears to have broken the law, is because there are so many opportunities for the officers and their unions to appeal. These provisions are often built into the collective bargaining agreements, which makes it unlikely that there will be much in the way of reform, he says. "The language in the contracts is very much stacked toward officers and letting officers get away with things, which is not surprising," White says.

    Gadarian discusses partisan divide over COVID-19 in USA Today

    "I thought at some point, reality would come back in for people and they would have a hard time balancing their motivations to stay consistent with their partisanship with what's going on on the ground," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science, who has tracked American attitudes toward the pandemic since it began. "That was wholly optimistic on my part." Gadarian was interviewed for the USA Today article, "As COVID surges, Americans remain divided on the threat. What will it take to bring them together?"

     

    O'Keefe writes about the presidential transition in Breaking Defense

    "Each day we tolerate President Trump’s behavior we aren’t just humoring an incumbent who refuses to accept the election results. We are putting American citizens at risk," says University Professor Sean O'Keefe, who served in two Republican administrations. "The consequence of Trump’s anchor dragging will be to diminish the standing of the United States as a mature, stable and principled democracy with the resilience to responsibly govern the republic regardless of who occupies the office of the president." O'Keefe's article, "Biden Transition: We Can’t Afford Time To Humor Trump," was published in Breaking Defense.

     

    Jackson op-ed on protectionism, white femininity published in Truthout

    "As the majority of white women continue to support candidates whose policies stand in opposition to the concerns and experiences of vulnerable populations in the United States, there remains a proclivity among progressives to protect them from criticism," writes Jenn Jackson, assistant professor of political science. Their op-ed, "Yes, 55 Percent of White Women Voted for Trump. No, I’m Not Surprised," was published in Truthout.

     

    Reeher weighs in on NY's relationship with Biden in Press Republican

    Under Biden the state could find itself having a much more responsive federal government, and a number of Democrats, not just Cuomo, could be among the beneficiaries, says Professor Grant Reeher. "It certainly gives the state a much louder voice in Washington," he says. And that is expected to be the case even if national Republicans keep control of the U.S. Senate, via two special runoff elections slated to be held in early January, Reeher adds.

    LA Review of Books reviews Lasch-Quinn's new book Ars Vitae

    Professor Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn's book, "Ars Vitae: The Fate of Inwardness and the Return of the Ancient Arts of Living," was recently reviewed in the Los Angeles Review of Books. "Lasch-Quinn has set out in 'Ars Vitae' to embody the best of what true philosophical writing has to offer. She writes in a way that makes her readers better thinkers, more reflective and self-aware, and she does so by showing the development of her own thinking — who her influences are, the sources from which she draws her wisdom, and how philosophy informs her understanding of herself, the culture, and the world in which she lives," says Matthew Clemente.

     

    Abdelaaty examines asylum admissions in International Interactions

    Why would a country welcome some refugees and treat others poorly? More specifically, why do countries accept some asylum applications and reject others? In her study titled "Rivalry, ethnicity, and asylum admissions worldwide," Assistant Professor of Political Science Lamis Abdelaaty argues that states’ approaches to refugees are shaped by foreign policy and ethnic politics. The article was published in International Interactions.

     

    O'Keefe talks to SpaceNews about civil space traffic management

    University Professor Sean O'Keefe recently participated in a study by the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) on which agency was best to handle civil space traffic management. "It became very apparent, from the earliest meetings and discussions that we had, that this is a looming challenge that is becoming more and more difficult, almost exponentially," says O’Keefe. "You then begin to inventory up the range of federal agencies that are participating at present for their own interests, and for the individual public services they provide."

    Gadarian provides post-election commentary on TRT World, WAER

    "These baseless accusations of electoral fraud do a lot of damage to the public’s belief in the electoral system and in democracy itself," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science. "And that is extremely damaging to our democracy." Gadarian was interviewed for the TRT World segment, "How Biden Beat Trump." She was also interviewed for the WAER segment, "What Can Trump Achieve or Get Away with During Lame Duck Presidency?"

     

    Abdelaaty piece on UNHCR refugee status determination published in FMR

    White discusses the importance of GA runoff elections in The Nation

    The stakes are as high as they possibly could be, because, as Assistant Professor of Political Science Steven White notes, "If Democrats win the two Senate races in Georgia, their odds of being able to pass the legislation in their platform [go] up dramatically." White was quoted in The Nation article, "Georgia Voters Can Put an End to Mitch McConnell’s Grim Reaping." He was also quoted in the Las Vegas Review-Journal article, "Democrats pin Senate hopes on Georgia runoff elections," the White Plains CitizeNetReporter article, "Impact of Georgia U.S. Senate Seat Runoff Elections," and the The 74 article, "Makeup of Senate Means Biden Will Likely Lack Votes and ‘Big Buckets of Funding’ for Expansive Education Agenda."

     

    Thorson provides key election takeaways in Washington Post article

    High voter turnout, rethinking election "fundamentals," nationalized politics, and the significance of electoral cycles are just a few of the takeaways from the 2020 election that Emily Thorson, assistant professor of political science, and her co-author write about. Their article, "Here are six big takeaways from the 2020 elections," was published in the Washington Post.

     

    Bybee talks to WSYR about how to deal with political polarization

    "I think what’s important to realize about civility is it’s all a matter of display. It’s a matter of showing people respect. You don’t have to like everybody," says Keith Bybee, professor of political science and author of "How Civility Works." The problem with that is many people have different ideas of what respectable behavior should look like. It all comes back to how you were raised, says Bybee.

    Gadarian quoted in NPR article on COVID-19, support for Trump

    "What we've seen is over time that the biggest determinant of people's worries about COVID-19 and their attitudes about COVID-19 is not where they live or the COVID-19 deaths in their area, but it is their partisanship," says Shana Gadarian, associate professor of political science. "We know partisanship matters a great deal for people's vote choice." Read more in the NPR article, "Many Places Hard Hit By COVID-19 Leaned More Toward Trump In 2020 Than 2016."

    Reeher provides election commentary to local, international press

    "It may be the Democrats have yet to find the balance they need between the left wing of their party and the rest of it," Professor Grant Reeher told Spectrum News. "Biden struggled to balance these two camps. Republicans beat expectations, and with a more ‘presidential’ candidate at the top of the ticket, they could be well positioned in 2024." Reeher provided election commentary to several local and international media outlets.

     

    Pralle discusses updating county flood maps in Cortland Standard

    The Cortland County flood map "might show a reasonable flood risk today, but since we don’t make those investment decisions with ramifications far into the future, the maps don’t really help us plan for a different climate," says Sarah Pralle, associate professor of political science. "When we look at flood maps now, the conversations are about the insurance cost," Pralle says. Instead, "we have to get to the point where we talk about these things as risks and how to mitigate these things as well."

    Bybee talks to WAER about the partisan profile of SCOTUS

    "Majorities of Americans will no longer see the court as an impartial harbinger of law, and will instead interpret judicial decisions simply as Democrats and Republicans in opposition, on the high court," says Keith Bybee, professor of political science. "When you have that kind of understanding eclipsing a view of impartiality, then the legitimacy of the entire institution is at risk."

    Bennett, Gadarian quoted in NYT on voters' fear for our democracy

    There have been other moments of interlocking crises and deep anxiety in America in the past century. But in those moments, the country didn’t have a president seen by many as having "taken a pickax to the tent poles of democratic institutions," says Professor Emeritus David Bennett. According to Shana Gadarian, "There are a couple ways in which the president has chosen an ineffective strategy." The first is that he has tried to tug on personal worries, like falling property values. "The second," she says, "is telling people not to be worried about something that is in fact worrisome."

    Reeher discusses Biden's debate strategy in The Hill

    "I think the main thing for Biden at this point is to simply show up and get through the event without a major breakdown of some kind," says Professor Grant Reeher. Most viewers are already locked in with their preferred candidate, Reeher says. "They’re just watching to see the show, or to root on their team, or to see a train wreck, and not to try to figure something out."

    Cohen piece on critical race theory, US election published in El País

    "With immigration halted and immigrants who remain forced to live in terror, Trump is now delivering to his followers the next phase of his war, in which his targets are the US citizens who have long been forced to the margins of their own country," says Professor Elizabeth Cohen and co-author Jason Stanley of Yale University. "Both the 2016 campaign and the 2020 campaign are celebrations of white nationalism. Both campaigns were about race all along." Their article, "Critical race theory and the 2020 US election," was published in El País.
