- ItemOpen AccessUpdated SCAA Base Case assessment for Greenland halibut(2020) Rademeyer, Rebecca; Butterworth, Doug SThe Statistical Catch-at-Age (SCAA) assessment methodology applied to the Greenland halibut resource in 2017 is updated to take further data now available for the years 2017 to 2019 into account. Results are reported for a Base Case corresponding to that considered in 2017, and some sensitivities related to uncertainties about some recent catch-at-age data. Apart from a slight downward shift in the overall biomass scale, results are essentially unchanged from those in 2017, and the sensitivity runs show little difference from the Base Case. There has been a recent slight downward trend in exploitable biomass, but this is likely to reverse quite soon given that the estimates of incoming recruitment are of above average strength. New data and recent resource trends are consistent with predictions made in 2017 when a revised management procedure for Greenland halibut was adopted.
- ItemRestrictedParty footprints in Africa: measuring local party presence across the continent(Centre for Social Science Research, 2020-10) Krönke, Matthias; Lockwood, Sarah J; Mattes, RobertThe conventional view holds that most of Africa’s political parties are organizationally weak, with little grassroots presence. Yet few studies are based on systematically collected data about more than a handful of parties or countries at any given point. In this paper, we focus on one crucial aspect of party organization – the local presence that enables political parties to engage with and mobilize voters – and use Afrobarometer data to develop the Party Presence Index, the first systematic, cross-national measure of local party presence in Africa. We then apply the index to a series of substantive questions, confirming its value and demonstrating its potential to add significantly to our understanding of grassroots party organization.
