#Eksplozja w #Chmielnickim. Brak dowodów na obecność #amunicji ze zubożonym #uranem

#Rosyjska #propaganda po raz kolejny aktywnie próbuje siać #panikę w #Polsce i krajach #Europy. Narracje te są bardzo chętnie powielane przez liczne konta w mediach społecznościowych. [1/3]
Na ten moment nie ma żadnych dowodów na to, by w #Chmielnickim znajdowały się magazyny, w których składowano #amunicję ze #zubożonym #uranem. Nie zaobserwowano wzrostu #promieniowania ani w #ukraińskim mieście, ani w #Polsce. [2/3]

"The Evolution of Strangers and Foreigners"

🧵 Today's SFI Seminar by @DoctorBugs (@Smithsonian)…

cc @templeton_fdn
First, a loop back to his LAST (2020) SFI Seminar on 3D structure of living systems from biofilms to rainforest canopies:

And his #ComplexityPodcast episode on ideas from that talk and this one:…
"People often think of societies as cooperative, but some societies are NOT very cooperative. I prefer to put the focus on them as groups."

"Societies are just one aspect of belonging. There are groups *within* societies & that's what psychologists mostly focus on."

Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, #No Outsiders
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Made worldwide news…practitioners & policy makers across UK

Today is the first #newmoon after the summer #solstice meaning it's 1 Hekatombaion - Athenian New Year! The Athenians had a number of calendars in use; Hekatombaion was the first month of the lunisolar 'festival calendar'.
New holders of civic offices would be sworn in, swearing oaths, with the gods as their witness, to fulfil their duties in a manner befitting the office. Athenian #democracy relied on its citizens' (free Athenian men) direct participation in the councils, assemblies and courts.
The latest batch of #ephebes - 18-year-old sons of citizens - were called up. They'd swear an oath to defend Athens and never shame the city. Two years of training would start turning boys into well-disciplined #hoplites; they gained a cloak, a spear, a shield and #citizenship.

#SupremeCourt to hear a plea by the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), seeking a stay on the May 28 order of @HMOIndia which empowered 13 districts across three States to grant citizenship to non-Muslim minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh
In an affidavit filed in response to a place by Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), the MHA stated that May 28 notification has no relation whatsoever with the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) but is a "mere delegation of power vested with the Central Government."
MHA has further pointed out that similar delegation of power had been permitted by Central Government in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2016 and 2018.

It’s election time in NL!

-> 17 March 🇳🇱

I had a look at party positions on #citizenship in 13 election manifestoes.

What did I find…?

1. Right-wing restriction
2. Left-wing silence / ambiguity
3. Small liberal center
4. New diaspora capture

A thread /
#1. Right-wing restriction

No surprise. Parties on center-right (VVD), orthodox Christian right (SGP) & populist right (FvD, PVV) advocate citizenship stripping.

‘Freedom’ Party PVV advocates restrictions of #dualcitizens (eg military)

FvD & SGP against pathway to citizenship.
#2. Left-wing silence / ambiguity I

The Greens (GL) & orthodox Socialist Party (SP) are silent on citizenship.

Labour Party (PvdA) somewhat ambiguous on #dualcitizenship: ‘no sign of lack of loyalty, but want to help people get rid of other citizenship, if they want’.

New pre-print:

What’s the causal impact of #dualcitizenship acceptance on immigrant naturalisation?

Floris Peters (@MiLifeStatus) and I apply quasi-experimental design based on reforms in 🇳🇱 (1997) and 🇸🇪 (2001).

I think it’s pretty nifty 🤓

thread/1 Image

Difference-in-differences design exploits exogenous variation in origin country #citizenship legislation to identify the treatment effect of destination country policy reform.

We draw on @macimide data on expatriate dual citizenship acceptance:… Image
We employ microlevel administrative data on complete migrant populations in the years around these reforms.

In 🇳🇱 dual citizenship was restricted in 1997, though with major exemptions (eg not if 🇳🇱 partner).

In 🇸🇪 dual citizenship was liberalised in 2001. Image

New @FrontSociology paper w Swantje Falcke (@MiLifeStatus) with, I think, intriguing #nullfindings.

Q: did abolishment of “domestic clause” (i.e. #dualcitizenship restriction) in Germany 🇩🇪 affect naturalization rates after 2000?

We find it did not.


The “Inlandsklausel” before 2000 exempted German citizens who acquired another citizenship from losing 🇩🇪 citizenship if they lived in 🇩🇪.

This ‘backdoor to dual citizenship’ enabled naturalising migrants to renounce, and then reacquire, their origin citizenship. Image

Data: we combine data from SOEP (@DIW_Berlin_en) with @_GlobalCIT data on #citizenship reacquisition policies in origin countries.

Method: we employ a difference-in-differences strategy and compare naturalization rates between 1993 and 2006. Image

#Brexit #citizenship
🇬🇧 Recommendation two: The Government should introduce discounted citizenship fees of at least 50% for all low-income migrants.

Heard on @cafedotcom Insider with @PreetBharara and @AnneMilgram that the voter turnout in this election is expected to be the highest since 1908. Here's who couldn't vote in 1908. THREAD 1/14
Women. 19th amendment passed in 1920 granting equal access to the polls for #womenvoters. 2/14
Native Americans. The Indian Citizenship Act passed in 1924 granting #citizenship for all Native Americans (that's some audacity that the original inhabitants of this land were not citizens🤨). Some western states still didn't fully allow Native Americans voting until 1948. 3/14
