Kettering Foundation International Residents
Kettering Foundation Press
OverviewSome of the rich contributions to research at the Kettering Foundation come from the many visitors and residents who stay at the foundation for short periods of time and work on ideas related to the research of the foundation, but considered through their own lenses of practice and place. Collected Essays gathers excerpts or adaptations of reports on research projects conducted by some of Kettering’s international fellows during their stay at the foundation. The subjects are as varied and far-flung as the fellows themselves, who are from Zimbabwe, Colombia, Brazil, China, Russia, and New Zealand. These essays reflect the learning that grew out of their stay and their research in their home countries. They are intended, among other things, to provide ideas, guidance, and inspiration for those who come after them. Chapters in this volume include: Foreword, Maxine Thomas Implementation of the Chinese and US Constitutions: A Comparative Study, Zhai Guoqiang No Deaf Left Behind, Leonardo Neves Correa Global Trends in Agricultural Policymaking and Production, Tendai Murisa An Analysis of Ideological Factors in the Selection Process for Justices of the Supreme Court in the United States, Liu Hui Can the Equal Protection Doctrine in the United States Be Applied to Judicial Practice in China?, Jing Zhou Putting Our Minds Together for a Better Future, Harley Eagle Strategies for Creating a Friendly Environment in an Unfriendly World, Alina Starinets Cross-Cultural Management of International Education, Zhang Chunping The Rural Issue in Colombia at the National and Local Levels, Angela Navarrete-Cruz “Who Are We?,” Guo Jie An Interview with Maureen Gillon, Maura Casey.
About the Kettering Foundation
The Kettering Foundation is a nonpartisan, nonprofit operating foundation rooted in the American tradition of cooperative research. Kettering’s primary research question is: What does it take to make democracy work as it should? Kettering’s research is distinctive because it is conducted from the perspective of citizens and focuses on what people can do collectively to address problems affecting their lives, their communities, and their nation.
