    Terrorist Campaigns and the Growth of the Muslim Population.Seung-Whan Choi - 2021 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 22 (1):40-56.
    The world population of Muslims has increased exponentially in the past decade. Why is the world's Muslim population growing so quickly? This study offers a new theoretical perspective: the growth of the worldwide Muslim population is a result of a series of terrorist campaigns that inspire non-Muslims to convert to Islam. For empirical testing, this study employs a cross-national, time-series analysis of 152 countries from 1970 to 2007. Although there is lack of data on conversions that follow terrorist campaigns for (...)

    The Proposer or the Proposal? An Experimental Analysis of Constitutional Beliefs.Kenneth Mori McElwain, Shusei Eshima & Christian G. Winkler - 2021 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 22 (1):15-39.
    In many countries, constitutional amendments require the direct approval of voters, but the consequences of fundamental changes to the powers and operations of the state are difficult to anticipate. The referendums literature suggests that citizens weigh their prior beliefs about the merits of proposals against the heuristic provided by the partisanship of the proposer, but the relative salience of these factors across constitutional issue areas remains underexplored. This paper examines the determinants of citizen preferences on 12 diverse constitutional issues, based (...)
