SIPA's Global Fellows Program brings to Columbia University a distinguished group of global leaders, each of whom plays a significant role in designing, shaping or implementing solutions to critical global problems.

The Global Fellows serve as important resources for academic and professional programs throughout the University, through public lectures, seminar meetings with faculty and students, mentoring students, and advice on research and teaching in their areas of knowledge and experience. Global Fellows may choose to teach and may do so in collaboration with SIPA faculty; if available, when their interests and schedules make it possible.

One of the hemisphere's foremost authorities on the military's role in politics, particularly in Brazil, Alfred Stepan focuses sharply on how the armed forces have participated in the process of transition from authoritarian rule to democratic politics in Brazil, with comparative references to Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Spain.

Using 267 repeated policy questions (962 time points), we examine gender differences in policy choices and how they have changed from the 1960s to the 1980s. The average gender difference in preferences toward policies involving the use of force have consistently been moderately large. Sex differences in opinion toward other policies—regulation and public protection, “compassion” issues, traditional values—have been approximately half as large but they also warrant more attention than in the past. Our analysis suggests that the salience of issues has increased greatly for women, and as a result differences in preferences have increased in ways consistent with the interests of women and the intentions of the women's movement.

This paper presents methods for estimating the impact of training on earnings when non-random selection characterizes the enrollment of persons into training. We explore the benefits of cross-section, repeated cross-section and longitudinal data for addressing this problem by considering the assumptions required to use a variety of new and conventional estimators given access to various commonly encountered types of data. We investigate the plausibility of assumptions needed to justify econometric procedures when viewed in the light of prototypical decision rules determining enrollment into training. We examine the robustness of the estimators to choice-based sampling and contamination bias.
