    The Formalization of Informal Workers at Hyundai Motor Company.Minhyoung Kang - 2023 - Politics and Society 51 (1):108-134.
    Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) has departed from the general tendency in the neoliberal era toward labor casualization. Nonregular workers at HMC have succeeded in having their employment status converted from precarious to permanent. I investigate why informal workers at HMC have been more successful in regularizing their status than informal workers in the shipbuilding industry. I contend that the deskilled labor process in automobile production provides favorable conditions for informal workers to organize themselves and stage disruptive protests. These differences in (...)

    Harvesting Influence: Agrarian Elites and Democracy in Brazil.Belén Fernández Milmanda - 2023 - Politics and Society 51 (1):135-161.
    With size, voting discipline, and technical resources superior to those of most Brazilian parties, in the last two decades, the support of the Agrarian Caucus has become crucial for the realization of presidents’ legislative agenda. In a country where 87 percent of the population is urban, how have representatives of the agrarian elites become key players in bargaining on nonagrarian issues? This article argues that Brazilian agrarian elites have been so successful because they have devised an electoral strategy that maximizes (...)

    When Can Dictators Go It Alone? Personalization and Oversight in Authoritarian Regimes.Matthew Reichert, Christopher Carothers & Andrew Leber - 2023 - Politics and Society 51 (1):66-107.
    Why are some autocrats able to personalize power within their regimes while others are not? Past studies have focused on the balance of power between the autocrat and his or her supporting coalition of peer or subordinate elites, but we find that often the crucial relationship is between the autocrat and the “old guard”—retired leaders, party elders, and other elites of the outgoing generation. Using an original data set of authoritarian leadership transitions, we argue that when members of the old (...)

    Eviction and Voter Turnout: The Political Consequences of Housing Instability.Gillian Slee & Matthew Desmond - 2023 - Politics and Society 51 (1):3-29.
    In recent years, housing costs have outpaced incomes in the United States, resulting in millions of eviction filings each year. Yet no study has examined the link between eviction and voting. Drawing on a novel data set that combines tens of millions of eviction and voting records, this article finds that residential eviction rates negatively impacted voter turnout during the 2016 presidential election. Results from a generalized additive model show eviction’s effect on voter turnout to be strongest in neighborhoods with (...)

    State Policy Regimes and Associational Roles in Technology Development: A Tale of Two Metropolises.Xiaoke Zhang - 2023 - Politics and Society 51 (1):30-65.
    The lead trade associations of the bio-pharma and semiconductor industries have differed systematically in their roles in facilitating the development of innovation networks between Shanghai and Shenzhen, two prominent high-tech metropolises in China. Divergent associational roles stem from variations in the regional state policy regime that has exerted differential shaping influence on the structure of social cleavages and strength of reciprocity norms among member firms and on their willingness to actively and cooperatively engage in association-led networking activities. The bio-pharma and (...)
