In The Century of Science, a multicultural, international team of authors examines the global rise of scholarly research in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health (STEM+) fields. At the beginning of the 20th century, the global center-point of scientific productivity was about half way between Western Europe and the U.S., in the North Atlantic. Then, the center moved steadily westward and slightly southward—reflecting the burgeoning science capacity of the U.S. supported by America’s thriving public and private universities, technological innovation, and overall economic growth. After WWII, this began to change as the course of the world’s scientific center of gravity turned and for the next 70 years traveled eastward, the direction it still travels, especially due to the rise of China and other prolific East Asian countries, such as Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. Europe continues to be the center of global science. Focusing on these developments, this volume provides historical and sociological understandings of the ways that higher education has become an institution that, more than ever before, shapes science and society. Case studies, supported by the most historically and spatially extensive database on STEM+ publications available, of selected countries in Europe, North America, East Asia, and the Middle East, emphasize recurring themes: the institutionalization and differentiation of higher education systems to the proliferation of university-based scientific research fostered by research policies that support continued university expansion leading to the knowledge society. Growing worldwide, research universities appear to be the most legitimate sites for knowledge production. Countries like France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Japan began the 20th century with prerequisites in place to realize the emerging model of university-based research. Over the past several decades, China, South Korea, and Taiwan, with different historical legacies and conflicts in education and research policy, have witnessed explosive growth, sustained by public and private funds. Qatar recently embarked on an ambitious government-driven effort to develop a world-class university sector and cultivate academic STEM+ research from scratch. These more recent entrants to the global scientific enterprise pose the question whether it is possible to leapfrog across decades, or even centuries, of cultivating university systems, to compete globally. Simultaneously with international and regional competition, world-leading science increasingly implies collaboration across cultural and political borders as global scientific production and networking continue to rise exponentially. This volume’s case studies offer new insights into how countries develop the university-based knowledge thought fundamental to meeting social needs and economic demands. Despite repeated warnings that universities would lose in relevance to other organizational forms in the production of knowledge, our findings demonstrate incontrovertibly that universities have become more—not less—important actors in the world of knowledge. The past hundred years have seen the global triumph of the research university. [less ▲]

Stadt und Umland sind auf vielfältige Weise miteinander vernetzt. Die durch den „Spatial Turn“ in den Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften eingebrachten Impulse, Geschichte wieder verstärkt in räumlichen Bedingungen zu denken und Veränderungen der Raumwahrnehmung intensiver in den Blick zu nehmen, sind das Anliegen des vorliegenden Bandes. Im Fokus der 24 Beiträge stehen u.a. Fragen zur kartographischen Repräsentation, zur Sozialtopographie vorstädtischer Räume, zu Inklusions- und Exklusionsprozessen, sowie zur unterschiedlich starken Ausprägung von Zonen städtischen Einflusses. Beleuchtet werden ausgewählte Städte aus Mittel-, Süd- und Osteuropa und besonders auch Festungsstädte sowie die in diesem Kontext oft wenig beachteten „Kleinen Städte". [less ▲]

Depuis les référendums sur le feu Traité constitutionnel européen en 2005 et suite au déclenchement de la crise de la dette souveraine d’Etats membres de la zone euro en 2009, la confiance accordée par les citoyens à l’Union européenne et aux gouvernements qui la composent s’affaiblit. Le scrutin pour désigner le nouveau Parlement européen en mai 2014 a confirmé ce « réalignement électoral » au profit de forces politiques qui sont classées et/ou qui se considèrent parfois elles-mêmes comme relevant du « populisme ». Ce rapport de force inédit nous oblige à traiter « à nouveaux frais » de l’identité des populismes et de leurs rapports à la démocratie d’autant plus qu’ils aspirent désormais, s’ils ne l’ont pas déjà fait, à exercer des fonctions gouvernementales.

L’égalité est un des principes fondamentaux de toutes les démocraties modernes. Bien plus, il n’existe aucune théorie politique qui ne se réfère directement ou indirectement à l’égalité ou à l’inégalité à un point tel qu’on puisse dire que, dans la plupart des cas, du moins depuis les Révolutions américaine et française, la justice d’un ordre social et politique se traduit par l’égalité ou l’inégalité entre ses membres. D’où la controverse qui entoure son usage dans les contextes sociaux et politiques. C’est à juste titre qu’on a pu dire que la justice représente un “essentially contested concepts”.1 Néanmoins, même en politique, ce ne sont pas toutes les occurrences ou emploi du terme égalité ou inégalité qui devraient donner lieu à des contestations.

Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Luxembourg consist of an annotated book of currently valid legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims in Luxembourg. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text will be preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The legal texts will be published in the original language while the annotations and supporting material will be in English. The focus of the book is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Luxembourg, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life. It's a part of a project will cover the 28 member states of the European Union (including Croatia), Norway and Switzerland plus the European Union and the European Court of Justice. [less ▲]

This Book provides a new analysis of the role that the British played in the shift in American foreign policy from 1946 to 1950. To achieve this shift (which also included support of British strategic interests in the Eastern Mediterranean) this book argues that the British used Greece, first as a way to draw the United States further into European affairs, and then as a way to anchor the United States in Europe, achieving a guarantee of security of the Eastern Mediterranean and of Western Europe. While trying to understand and explain the origins and dynamics of Anglo-American foreign policy in the pre and early years of the Cold War, the role that perception played in the design and implementation of foreign policy became a central focus of the research. From this point came the realization of a general lack of emphasis and research into the ways in which the British government managed to convince the United States government to assume support for worldwide British strategic objectives. How this support was achieved is the central theme of this book. It also addresses the question of whether or not Anglo-American policy was simply a convergence of common Anglo-American objectives, or if it was a result of common objectives created by British influence? To support these hypotheses, this work uses mainly the British and American documents relating to Greece from 1946 to 1950 to explain how these nations made and implemented policy towards Greece during this crucial period in history. In so doing it also explains how American foreign policy in general changed from its pre-war focus on non-intervention, to the post-war policy which heavily favours intervention. [less ▲]

Many libraries own an extensive collection of historical maps. Beside their value as historical objects, these maps are an important source of information for researchers in various scientific disciplines. This ranges from the actual history of cartography and general history to the geographic and social sciences. With the progressing digitisation of libraries and archives, these maps become more easily available to a larger public. A basic level of digitisation consists of scanned bitmap images, tagged with some basic bibliographic information such as title, author and year of production. In order to make the maps more accessible, further metadata describing the contained information is desirable. This would enable more user-friendly interfaces, relevant queries of a database, and automatic analyses. This international workshop provides a forum for the communication of results that may be useful to the community.

Europe’s sovereign debt crisis and the accompanying national bank crises in the European Union brought bank regulation and supervision to the top of the EU policy agenda. In a few short years, we have witnessed a ‘great leap forward’ for European integration marked by over a dozen pieces of EU legislation shaping the operation of banks, rules on bank capital, reconfigured supervisory agencies, and Banking Union. The significance of these measures lies however, in the fact that they constitute the most dramatic transfer of policy-making powers to the European level since the start of Economic and Monetary Union in 1999. This volume addresses the three main political battles behind the adoption of these new regulatory and supervisory policies. First, it examines divisions among states, both according to their domestic institutional structures, including distinct financial systems, as well as their creditor or debtor status in the crisis. Second, it studies the battle over national versus supranational jurisdiction. Third, it explores the conflictual process of policy learning and the activation of epistemic communities who claim competence to address the crisis. [less ▲]

The Conflict of Laws, also known as private international law, is a field of the greatest importance in an increasingly globalized world. The analysis of any legal issue, in a case involving more than one country, must start with an assessment of which court could potentially hear the case and which law it would apply. Contrary to other manuals or casebooks, which focus on the law of one jurisdiction, this innovative casebook offers a comparative treatment of the field. On each issue, materials from several jurisdictions are discussed and compared. The approach centers on comprehending the common principles of the field, but also highlights the fundamental differences. The goal is to train lawyers who not only will know the law of their own jurisdiction, but also will have an understanding of the key differences existing between the main models, and will thus be able to interact usefully with clients from other jurisdictions. This casebook systematically presents and compares the laws of four jurisdictions: the United States, the European Union, France and England (where left untouched by EU harmonization). It offers additional insight into rules applicable in China and Japan and also discusses remarkable solutions adopted in a wide range of jurisdictions such as Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Tunisia. All materials from non-English speaking jurisdictions have been translated into English. Key features of the casebook: • written by a leading authority in the field • carefully selected extracts from primary and secondary sources build a clear picture of the field • expert analytical commentary and questions set the extracts in context • US, EU, French and English perspectives integrated throughout the text to ensure maximum relevance and encourage students to make comparative assessments • numerous references to Chinese and Japanese solutions • leads students through the field from beginning to end • perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook.

Dabei weitet sich der Blick programmatisch auf die Perspektive auch der 'Kleinmächte' wie Luxemburg, Polen und Estland aus.

Children and their parents have become a focal point of debates on ‘new social risks’ and the strong need for ‘new public policies’ in many European welfare states. Policy-related elites, along with UNICEF, the OECD, and the EU, have converged in defining such risks. They outlined parenting support measures, rules, and procedures to better safeguard children and to activate their potential, promote their well-being, and ensure equal opportunities. Parents are expected to offer their children ‘grade A’ parenting. However, they are increasingly suspected of failing to meet public expectations. Hence, agencies advocating children’s best interest are intervening in parenting practices at an increasingly earlier age on the grounds of potential risks. The boundaries between what has been seen as ‘family’ or ‘private’ versus ‘public affairs’ are being redrawn by discourses as well as by ‘evidence-based’ measures to intervene and tackle child-related risks. Contributors to this special issue from Belgium, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden are scrutinizing this ‘turn to parenting’. They analyse which parenting practices are now ‘in the spotlight’ and report on recent forms of support for parents. Whereas debates on ‘new risks’ and the need for ‘child-centred social investments’ have converged, parenting support measures still vary across countries both quantitatively and qualitatively. Such variations result from path-dependent institutional settings, public sentiments, and policy ‘cultures’. This issue offers an excellent opportunity to study parenting support policies in countries representing different ‘worlds’ of family policy. It highlights different ideas on the child’s proper status in society and on good parenting along with variations in the influence of experts on parenting and practitioners’ attitudes towards it – especially the parenting practiced by mothers from different backgrounds.

Multicultural societies are a phenomenon that is increasingly observed worldwide. This book brings together theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence on how culture contact is experienced at the individual level. At the heart of this book lies the question of how individuals living within a multicultural society experience the meeting of cultures. The studies were conducted in Luxembourg, a country where the foreign population has reached 45%. Luxembourg is a “natural laboratory” and provides an ideal context in which to study culture contact phenomena and to derive lessons for an increasingly globalized world. The empirical studies indicate a gap between multiculturalist ideas and specific forms of societal participation. The policy implications of the findings are discussed. These include a focus on highlighting similarities between cultures rather than differences, and addressing the issue of reciprocity – expectations of both, the receiving society as well as immigrants.

This book provides an innovative analysis and interpretation of the overall trajectory of the Western European radical left from 1989 to 2015. After the collapse of really existing communism, this party family renewed itself and embarked on a recovery path, seeking to fill the vacuum of representation of disaffected working-class and welfarist constituencies created by the progressive neoliberalisation of European societies. The radical left thus emerged as a significant factor of contemporary political life but, despite some electoral gains and a few recent breakthroughs (SYRIZA in Greece, PODEMOS in Spain), it altogether failed to embody a credible alternative to neoliberalism and to pave the way for a turn to a different developmental model. This book investigates why this was the case, combining aggregate (17 countries), case study (Germany, Italy, and France), and comparative methods. It accurately charts the evolution of the nature, strength, cohesion, and influence of the Western European radical left, offering new insights in explaining its behaviour, success, and limits. It is essential reading for scholars, students, and activists interested in the radical left and in contemporary European politics. [less ▲]

The establishment of Banking Union represents a major development in European economic governance and European integration history more generally. Banking Union is also significant because not all European Union (EU) member states have joined, which has increased the trend towards differentiated integration in the EU, posing a major challenge to the EU as a whole and to the opt-out countries. This book is informed by two main empirical questions. Why was Banking Union - presented by proponents as a crucial move to 'complete' Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) - proposed only in 2012, over twenty years after the adoption of the Maastricht Treaty? Why has a certain design for Banking Union been agreed and some elements of this design prioritized over others? A two-step explanation is articulated in this study. First, it explains why euro area member state governments moved to consider Banking Union by building on the concept of the 'financial trilemma', and examining the implications of the single currency for euro area member state banking systems. Second, it explains the design of Banking Union by examining the preferences of member state governments on the core components of Banking Union and developing a comparative political economy analysis focused on the configuration of national banking systems and varying national concern for the moral hazard facing banks and sovereigns created by euro level support mechanisms.

Im Sinne von Leo Kestenberg versammelt dieser Band Beiträge, die sich mit aktuellen Tendenzen und Problemfeldern der historischen und der gegenwärtigen Musikpädagogik befassen. Dies erfolgt im Wissen um musikalische Bildung, welche in ihren verschiedenartigsten Ausprägungen einen wichtigen Bestandteil des immateriellen kulturellen Erbes Europas bildet. Aufgenommen wurden daher nicht nur Texte, die sich mit Leo Kestenbergs Wirken befassen, sondern auch solche, die musikalische Bildung im europäischen Kontext zum Thema haben. Es ist nicht zuletzt Kestenberg zu verdanken, dass Musikpädagogik im europäischen bzw. im globalen Rahmen zum ersten Mal im Jahre 1953 anlässlich einer internationalen Konferenz der UNESCO diskutiert wurde.

Mobilität und Migration rücken Interkulturalität in den Fokus öffentlicher und wissenschaftlicher Aufmerksamkeit. Inwiefern ist das Land Luxemburg aufgrund seiner kulturellen, sozialen und sprachlichen Besonderheiten ein Labor für interkulturelle Herausforderungen und Entwicklungen, speziell auf europäischer Ebene, allgemeiner auch für gesellschaftliche Prozesse im Spannungsfeld von Integration und Diversifikation? Dieser Frage widmet sich der vorliegende Band. Dabei beschränkt sich das Buch nicht auf die nationale Perspektive, sondern sucht auch darüber hinaus der Vielschichtigkeit interkultureller Prozesse unter Berücksichtigung unterschiedlicher fachwissenschaftlicher Perspektiven sowie methodischer und theoretischer Zugriffe Rechnung zu tragen.

La gouvernance de la zone euro est en crise depuis 2010. Le modèle issu du traité de Maastricht de 1992 n'est plus tenable. Dans un espace économique et financier intégré, les politiques économiques des États constituent un sujet d'intérêt commun. Le partage d'une monnaie unique au sein de la zone euro accentue le degré d'interdépendance : les difficultés financières d'un État concernent l'intégralité des membres de la zone euro. La politique monétaire unique conduite par la BCE est intimement liée aux développements dans les domaines économiques. Au-delà de la stabilité des prix, elle doit contribuer à la stabilité financière de la zone euro. De nombreuses réformes ont été prises lors des cinq dernières années. Le Six-Pack, le Two-Pack, le Pacte pour l'euro plus, le Fiscal Compact ont accru la surveillance de la coordination des politiques économiques des États. Une assistance financière d'une capacité de 700 milliards d'euros a été établie pour la zone. L'Union bancaire permet de casser le cercle vicieux entre la dette publique et la dette privée. L'Union monétaire déploie des mesures inédites pour stabiliser les marchés financiers et lutter contre la menace de déflation. Ces évolutions sont-elles adaptées aux enjeux d'une véritable union économique et monétaire ? Fruit de la collaboration de trois auteurs aux expertises et expériences complémentaires, cet ouvrage s'adresse à tous les lecteurs soucieux de comprendre la nouvelle gouvernance économique de la zone euro, suspendue entre unité et diversité, entre espoir et perplexité.

Die meisten Musikschöpfungen von Dicks sind bei großen Teilen der Bevölkerung noch immer bis heute präsent. Bei Experten ist seit langem bekannt, dass Dicks der Verfasser einer Harmonielehre ist. Die breite Masse nahm bis jetzt aber keine Notiz davon. "Die Harmonielehre von Edmond de la Fontaine" versteht sich generell als ein Beitrag zur Musikgeschichte Luxemburgs und im besonderen als ein Beitrag zu den Anfängen der musikalischen Bildung in Luxemburg. Weitere Forschungsarbeiten könnten / werden sich der Einordnung der Harmonielehre von Dicks annehmen und die Anlehnung an diese oder an jene (deutsche) Tradition bestätigen bzw. wiederlegen. Des weiteren wird sich das musikpädagogische Wirken von Laurent Menager (1835-1902) und von Heinrich Oberhoffer (1824-1885) u.a. in die Aufarbeitung musikwissenschaftlicher Fragestellungen aus den Anfangsjahren Luxemburgs als souveräner Staat im 19.

Computational Systems Biology: Inference and Modelling provides an introduction to, and overview of, network analysis inference approaches which form the backbone of the model of the complex behavior of biological systems. This book addresses the challenge to integrate highly diverse quantitative approaches into a unified framework by highlighting the relationships existing among network analysis, inference, and modeling. The chapters are light in jargon and technical detail so as to make them accessible to the non-specialist reader. The book is addressed at the heterogeneous public of modelers, biologists, and computer scientists. [less ▲]

Pendant plus d’un siècle et demi, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi a été tenu pour le père fondateur de l’école moderne. Si cette conception n’est plus celle qui prévaut aujourd’hui, elle reste néanmoins inscrite dans la mémoire collective. Pestalozzi y partage la place avec un autre précurseur venu de Suisse, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, dont l’Émile aurait fait l’initiateur d’une révolution dans la pensée pédagogique, l’orientant résolument vers l’enfant et les besoins de ce dernier. Pestalozzi aurait pour sa part traduit cette révolution en normes de l’éducation moderne et l’aurait diffusée dans toute l’Europe. Or, comme les recherches récentes l’ont démontré, pas plus qu’il n’a fondé l’école moderne, Pestalozzi n’a été l’initiateur de ce processus de transformation culturelle qui a "pédagogisé" le monde. On peut en revanche le considérer comme un intensificateur, un catalyseur de ce phénomène à son époque. Résultat d’une série de conditions contextuelles – des événements économiques, politiques et idéologiques dramatiques, comme la révolution américaine et la Révolution française – et de caractéristiques personnelles, le pédagogue est devenu, comme cherche à le montrer cette biographie intellectuelle, le porte-étendard indiscutable de cette transformation, qui consolida ses hypothèses. Pestalozzi est indubitablement la figure clef de ce bouleversement culturel, dont le parcours est retracé dans cet ouvrage. [less ▲]

Les abus de drogues posent d’importants défis en termes sociaux, économiques, de sécurité et de santé publique. Quel est le profil socio-économique des consommateurs ? Quelles sont les différentes trajectoires familiales, professionnelles et sociales d’usagers de drogues victimes de surdose fatale ? Quel est l’impact des inégalités sociales dans la survenue de surdoses impliquant des drogues illicites? Quel rôle pourrait avoir la réduction des inégalités sociales ? Quel enjeu pour les stratégies de prévention et de réduction des risques ? Un ensemble de recherches originales menées au Luxembourg, s’appuyant sur des méthodologies innovantes et une revue de littérature scientifique abondante, ont analysé les liens qui existent entre mortalités par surdose de drogues illicites et inégalités socio-économiques d’usagers suivis durant dix-huit ans. Les pistes de réflexion mises en avant dans cet ouvrage permettent de mieux saisir comment les conséquences néfastes pour l’individu, sa famille et la collectivité peuvent être en partie évitées ou réduites grâce à la mise en place de stratégies adaptées de prévention, de programmes de promotion de la santé et d’interventions psycho-socioéducatives. Cet ouvrage fournit des éléments de réflexion aux décideurs politiques, aux intervenants spécialisés en toxicomanie, aux professionnels de santé et du social pour pouvoir mieux décider et agir.

Barriers to Inclusion provides a comparative and historical account of the rise of special and inclusive education over the twentieth century in the United States and Germany. This institutional analysis demonstrates how categorical boundaries, professional groups, social movements, and education and social policies shaped the schooling of children and youth with disabilities. It traces the evolution of special education classification and categories, explores growing special education organizations, and examines students' learning opportunities and educational attainments. Highlighting cross-national differences over time, the author also investigates demographic and geographic variability within the federal democracies, especially in segregation and inclusion rates of disabled and disadvantaged children. Germany's elaborate system of segregated special school types contrasts with diverse American special education classrooms mainly within regular schools. Joining historical case studies with empirical indicators, this book reveals persistent barriers to school integration as well as factors that facilitate inclusive education reform in both societies.

Nur das Zusammenspiel seiner Ausdrucksweisen zeigt Webers künstlerischen, politisch-sozialen und essayistischen Weitblick und kann veranschaulichen, wie er seine eigene Rolle in einem entstehenden Luxemburger Kulturfeld sah und wie er letzteres konzeptualisierte.

Die Ästhetik fungiert als Stützpfeiler der Normativität, so Pierre Legendre, sie ermöglicht die „Konstruktion der Gegenüberstellung mit der Welt“. Vor dem Hintergrund dieses Ansatzes sowie seines Textkonzepts entwickelt Katrin Becker die Hypothese von der rechtlichen Stimme der Literatur. In einer kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit den Thesen Pierre Legendres widmet sie sich anhand beispielhafter Texte von Kafka und Hoffmann der Frage, inwieweit sich die Literatur als reflektierendes, konstruierendes oder modifizierendes Medium der Normativität erweisen könnte.

Dieser zweite Sammelband im Rahmen der Reihe „Studien zur Stapfer-Schulenquête von 1799“ beinhaltet vierzehn originäre Beiträge zu der 1799 durch den Helvetischen Bildungsminister Philipp Albert Stapfer initiierten großangelegten Schulumfrage. Gegenüber den Beiträgen im ersten Sammelband konnten diese hier versammelten Studien auf die komplette Edition der rund 2400 überlieferten Antwortbögen der Stapfer-Enquête zurückgreifen (www.stapferenquete.ch). Der nun vollständig mögliche Zugriff auf die Daten hat dementsprechend umfassendere Forschungsresultate zur Folge und erlaubt repräsentativere Tiefenbohrungen. Noch deutlicher als beim ersten Band vermögen diese Beiträge ein gegenüber der traditionellen Schulgeschichte wesentlich differenzierteres, in vielen Fällen auch korrigiertes Bild der Volksschule um 1800 zeichnen.

In European External Action Service, Mauro Gatti provides a legal analysis of the EU’s ‘foreign ministry’. The European External Action Service (EEAS) was created to coordinate the supranational and intergovernmental areas of EU external relations, but it is unclear whether and how it may attain this objective. Through an analysis of law and practice, Gatti demonstrates that the EEAS is capable of effectively promoting coherence in EU external relations. Although working independently from EU institutions and Member States, the EEAS can coordinate their activities at an administrative level. The EEAS is thus ideally placed to bring together EU external action instruments, including diplomatic efforts, development cooperation, and security policies. [less ▲]

Population ageing and the globalisation of international migration are challenging the research agendas of social scientists around the world, and posing numerous challenges for policy makers and practitioners whose goal is to formulate and design high-quality and user-friendly policies and services. Both of these phenomena have brought, for example, attention to the fact that more and more people around the world are ageing in countries other than those where they were born. The fact that elderly care sectors around the world need to recruit staff if they are to handle the growing number of older people that will need their services is also something that has been discussed when population ageing and the globalisation of international migration have been debated. The elderly care sector’s reliance on people with migrant backgrounds has namely increased as a result of these phenomena. This collection is therefore situated at the intersection of ageing and migration studies and takes into account the various issues with which this intersection is concerned. The chapters in this volume are written by established researchers in the field of ageing and migration around the world. The collection explores these issues in three sections: Elderly care regimes and migration regimes: national perspectives Ageing in contexts of migration: a multifaceted phenomenon Elderly care and migration. The expert contributions in this volume address the array of issues associated with the study of ageing, old age and elderly care in contexts of migration. [less ▲]

Wie verlief der Prozess der Erinnerung an den Zweiten Weltkrieg in Frankreich, Luxemburg und Deutschland? Wie kam es, dass aus einer gemeinsamen Geschichte von Unterdrückung, Auflehnung, (Mit)täterschaft und Opportunismus nach dem Krieg eine getrennte Erinnerung wurde? Die im Titel des vorliegenden Bandes vorgenommene Gegenüberstellung von „histoire“ und „mémoire“ verweist auf die Diskrepanz zwischen erlebter Vergangenheit und überlieferter Geschichte. Es ist die „mémoire“, das im Nachhinein konstruierte „Gedächtnis“ in Form von nationalen „Meistererzählungen“, die den Akzent auf das Trennende, das spezifisch Nationale legt. Die vorliegenden Beiträge bieten kritische Analysen der Darstellung und Deutung der Vergangenheit. Im Fall des ehemaligen Gestapo-Lagers Neue Bremm in Saarbrücken konnten bisher unberücksichtigte autobiographische Quellen ausgewertet werden. Im Vergleich der drei Länder ergaben sich neue Sichtweisen auf die jeweils nationalen Entwicklungen und neue Antworten auf die Frage nach der ‚Europäisierung‘ der Erinnerungsarbeit. [less ▲]

Spatial and identity research operates with differentiations and relations. These are particularly useful heuristic tools when examining border regions where social and geopolitical demarcations diverge. Applying this approach, the authors of this volume investigate spatial and identity constructions in cross-border contexts as they appear in everyday, institutional and media practices. The results are discussed with a keen eye for obliquely aligned spaces and identities and relinked to governmental issues of normalization and subjectivation. The studies base upon empirical surveys conducted in Germany, France, Belgium and Luxembourg. [less ▲]

This book publishes the contributions to the University of Luxembourg/UNHCR symposium on the legal protection of people fleeing armed conflict and other situations of violence. Assembling a distinguished group of judges, scholars and practitioners, the event examined the assessment of claims for international protection in such situations under, respectively, Article 1A(2) of the 1951 Refugee Convention, Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Article 15(c) of the EU Qualification Directive. Although originally it was hoped that the symposium would also mark the publication of the UNHCR’s Guidelines for the Protection of People Fleeing Violence and Conflict Across Borders, this did not prove possible. Indeed, the Guidelines still remain unpublished, a testimony to the sensitivity of the topic. Nonetheless, the papers contained in this volume demonstrate how much ground was covered during the symposium and how many important issues were discussed. [less ▲]
