Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 settembre 2020

Raphaël Glucksmann (S&D, FR)“In recent years, European democracies have been the target of coordinated attacks from the outside, aiming at weakening our institutions and subverting our public debate. We simply do not have the right to be naïve anymore. In the next 12 months, we’ll work together to precisely identify the threat and will propose efficient responses and new legislation to counter it”, said the Chair upon his election by acclamation. See his press statement here. The first regular meeting of the special committee is on Thursday, 24 September at 13:45. Live streaming of tomorrow’s meeting will be available here.The Committee on Foreign Interference in All Democratic Processes in the EU, Including Disinformation (INGE) was set up at a June plenary session with a mandate to deal with the following: • analysing investigations showing that crucial electoral rules have been breached in circumvented especially in the field of third country campaign financing; • examining national legislation on political funding; • suggesting rules to force social media companies to clearly label posts aimed to undermine democratic processes and spread hate-speech; • exploring how responsibility for countering foreign interference in the democratic processes can be extended to the private sector, including to social media and tech companies; • suggesting coordinated action on EU-level against hybrid threats targeting, among others, lawmakers, journalists and political parties; • countering information campaigns by malign third countries aimed at fostering discord in the EU; and • examining security breaches inside the EU institutions. The 33-member committee will summarize its findings in a report to be adopted by the end of its one-year mandate.

Recent Advances in Causal Inference for Policy Evaluation

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 23 Maggio 2017

Roma Fino al 31 Maggio 2017 Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche, Aula 3B Via Gabriello Chiabrera, 199.The Department of Political Science, University Roma Tre has organized an international workshop: Recent Advances in Causal Inference for Policy Evaluation to be held from May 4th to May 31st. that is endorsed by Italian Association of Regional Science (AISRe). This is an advanced workshop in policy evaluation, focused on several econometric methods used to draw causal claims about the effectiveness of public policies and programs. The topics covered have special salience in the field of program evaluation. Often depending on the identification strategy used, different empirical studies might give different or even opposite answers to the same policy question. For this reason, it is crucial to understand pro and cons of the research designs and the econometric tools employed to generate such findings. To this end, the workshop will present recent advances in the field of casual inference such as mediation analysis, interaction among units, sample selection, and endogeneity in the presence of heterogeneous effects. Schedule: May: 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 30, 31 Weekly Seminars on May 2017 Guest Speakers: Giovanni Mellace, University of Southern Denmark May: 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 30, 31 Laura Forastiere, University of Florence May: 18 The venue is Department of Political Science, University Roma Tre, Via Gabriello Chiabrera, 199 Rome.

Editor’s highlights  Around the world inequality is once again becoming an issue. China’s president, Britain’s prime minister, America’s second-richest man and the head of the International Monetary Fund have all worried, loudly and publicly, about the dangers of a rising gap between the rich and the rest. A survey of those due to gather in Davos next week named it as one of the two main global problems. This week we have a special report on the new global elite. In our cover leader, we argue much of the recent hand-wringing about widening inequality is based on sloppy thinking. In many cases it is part of a meritocratic process. Rather than attacking inequality itself, politicians should strike at the most pernicious, unfair sorts of income disparity and allow more people to move upwards. That would also boost growthTunisia’s lesson for the Arabs Let the scent of jasmine spread The science of sexual abstinence Restraint can be good for you Could the yuan replace the dollar as the reserve currency?
