World Society and Domestic Environmental Association

Wes Longhofer and I finished a substantial revision of our paper on domestic environmental associations.

The Origins of Environmental Association

The paper argues that the world polity becomes an engine that drives the expansion domestic civic association.  And, we discuss some of the mechanisms involved.

We also employ some whizzy new panel data methods, which may be of interest to some.  There’s been a lot of innovation in panel data methods lately.  We use the Arelleno-Bover/Blundell-Bond GMM estimator, which is supposedly more robust to endogeneity than other approaches.  Results don’t change much compared to our event history models… but it is interesting to try new things and see how they work.
