Paper Title: Examining the Divergence between the Faith-Based US Foreign Policies of G. W. Bush and Barack Obama in Executing Middle Eastern Affairs

Abstract: The eagerness towards maintaining all initiatives linked to globalization and international power has permitted nations to interrupt the use of religion in framing its foreign policy agenda. Such use, though some countries consider as a part of a nation’s defense strategy, has characterized the new millennium by a massive disorder threatening international political stability. This geopolitical situation forces researchers to go further in questioning the intercourse between the faith-based foreign policy constructing process and the soft, hard, and smart powers used by nations. The present paper highlights the presence of religion in skeletoning the US foreign policy under George W. Bush and Barack Obama presidencies and its effect on the US- Middle Eastern political relationships. Based on different foreign policies the two presidents have adopted, the paper deepens the analysis to compare between the faith-based foreign policies of Bush from those of Obama clarifying how the latter identifies the United States’ manipulation of soft, hard, and smart powers in managing crucial international affairs with the Middle Eastern countries.

Keywords: religion, the United States, Middle Eastern countries, soft power, hard power, smart power.

Paper Title: Determinants of Dividend Policy in Portuguese Banking System

Abstract: The purpose of this article is to identify the factors that influence the payment of dividends in banks operating in the Portuguese market. The study uses advanced financial data, in the period between 2005 and 2018. The model analyzed is tested using multiple regressions with data in the unbalanced panel.

The results show that the payment of dividends is mainly driven by the historical distribution and the positive influence of performance. In addition, the size of the bank is significant, although with a sign opposite to that expected. Another valuable result is associated with the changes that occurred before, during and after the financial crisis. The study supports the hypothesis of the influence of the crisis on dividend policy. Evidence is presented that in the post-crisis period, dividends were conditioned by the policy of retention of results imposed by the authorities.

The study presents limitations that must be taken into account as can represent restrictions on the results obtained. The size of the sample and the explicit policy of retention of results, imposed by authorities on some entities, stand out during part of the period under investigation.

A suggestion for future work would be appropriate to test proxies that evaluate the impact of smoothing practices on dividend payment policies.

Paper Title: Conceptualizing Servant Leadership: An Update

Abstract: The authors updated their servant leadership model, based on emerging research, with emphasis on cross-cultural applications, and integration with prevailing leadership and management theories. The servant leadership model consists of four dimensions: servant orientation, leadership/management competence, emotional intelligence, and cultural intelligence. It is at the intersection of these four dimensions that servant leadership operates. Measurement scales have been developed with a valuation study launched, using survey research methodology. The paper will outline the updated servant leadership model, profile the measurement scales, and report on the present status of the validation studies.

Key Words: Servant Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, Cultural Intelligence
