    Do Quantitative and Qualitative Research Reflect Two Distinct Cultures? An Empirical Analysis of 180 Articles Suggests “No”

    Based on the empirical evaluation of a stratified random sample of 180 publications, Kuehn and Rohlfing cast doubt on the popular hypothesis that the application of quantitative and qualitative methods in the social sciences constitute different and internally consistent methods “cultures”.

    The Ministry of National Defence in South Korea: Military Dominance Despite Civilian Supremacy?

    South Korea’s transition from military-controlled authoritarianism to consolidated civilian-dominated democracy is widely considered a success story. However, civilians’ roles within the MND remain severely limited due to the institutional design of the MND. An analysis.

    COVID-19 and Executive Personalization in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America and the MENA Region

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, political leaders reacted by containment measures that, next to combating the spread of the pandemic, also presented a window of opportunity to bolster executives’ personal grasp on power. Personalization of power has been particularly worrying in the Global South where constraints on the chief executives were often already weak prior to the pandemic. This project assesses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the personalization of executive power in 36 countries of the Global South.

    (Un-)healthy Civil-Military Relations? Militarization of State Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic in Latin America and Asia-Pacific

    A number of governments in Latin America and Asia-Pacific have given their militaries wide-ranging responsibilities to counter the COVID-19 pandemic. While the militarization of politics and public life partly precedes the pandemic, COVID-19 acts as a major stress test. States have mobilized the military to support civilian health systems and administrative agencies, and to uphold public order. This project examines the role the military plays in the COVID-19 pandemic response in 36 countries in Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

    The Dictator's Endgame: Theory and Empirical Analysis of Military Behavior in Authoritarian Regime Crises, 1946 - 2014

    The military determines the outcomes of peaceful mass protests in dictatorships. The project explains the outcome of authoritarian regime crises as the result of the strategic behavior of the military leadership who will repress the protests, side with the protesters, or stage a coup depending on which option maximizes their benefits. The argument is tested empirically on an original quantitative dataset on all mass protests dictatorships worldwide between 1946 and 2014.

    Der Krieg in der Ukraine und der Globale Süden: Wahrnehmungen, Reaktionen und Implikationen

    Während die meisten UN-Mitglieder Russlands Angriff auf die Ukraine schnell verurteilten, nahmen einige wenige Akteure des Globalen Südens eine „neutrale“ Haltung ein. Dieses GIGA Forum erörtert, wie Länder Asiens, Lateinamerikas, des Nahen Ostens und Subsahara-Afrikas den Krieg wahrnehmen und welche Folgen dieser für sie hat.
