Care for elderly persons has many facets and is influenced by many factors of the care-dependent person, the care giver(s) and the micro-, and macro-social context. A co-operation of multiple disciplines is required to better understand phenomena of elder care and to act adequately in this field. This is even more urgent given the increasing population aging and the impending gaps between demand and supply of care. The present book provides a first substantive integration of knowledge from geropsychology, other gerosciences, and cultural psychologies to reach these goals —through a multi-disciplinary and international cast of authors. Macro-social context—including demographic, historical, political, normative, and other cultural factors—turned out to open and limit the available options for individual care giving and receipt and shapes how these issues are experienced by the participants in elder care. Elder care is shown to be far more complex than previously thought, because its consequences extend beyond single care givers to multigenerational caring families. Thinking, feeling and acting in relation to care dependency, caregiving and care receipt emerged as being influenced by multiple individual and social level factors. Future issues of elder care are seen as being shaped to a large extent by macro level factors such as population aging, social trends in job and family life, and development of assistive technologies. All this has far reaching implications for ensuring quality of care and the life quality on part of care recipients and care providers and for the coherence of social communities. [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.

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 ▲]

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.

Attention plays a pivotal role in the experience of pain and its impact upon daily activities. Accordingly, research on the interplay between attention and pain has a long scientific history. Within this chapter, we discuss the theoretical frameworks that aim to explain the relationship between attention and pain. We argue for a motivational perspective on pain that highlights the critical role of cognitive, affective and contextual factors in explaining the interplay between attention and pain. To substantiate this argument, we provide an overview of available research addressing the bottom-up capture of attention by pain and the top-down modulation (both inhibition and facilitation) of attention for pain. We conclude this chapter with guidelines and suggestions for future research and discuss clinical implications of adopting a motivational perspective on pain. [less ▲]

I introduce the book starting by my own personal experience of growing up in a mixed family and being myself in a mixed marriage. I describe the structure of the book by building up my own method: how I chose this topic, who were the people I interviewed, how (interviews, stories, and objects) and why was the single-but-critical instances analysis important. I focus on the richness of the interaction I had with the interviewees. I underlie the phenomenological stories of struggles, trust and vulnerability. The chapters resolve around power relations, expressing affection, in-depth communication, child rearing, conflict resolution strategies, empathy, female identity, future planning, the role of humor, the biggest cultural and linguistic challenges and opportunities. The focus is on the phenomenon captured in single-but-critical instances in participants' stories. I conclude by describing what significance culture has in intimate intercultural relationships.

After World War II, as Europe floundered economically, British Prime Minister Clement Attlee looked to disengage Britain from some of its broad international obligations and increase American support for its new foreign agenda. One place he sought to do so was in Greece, which was in the midst of a civil war. Through an in-depth study of Anglo-American diplomacy in Greece from 1946-50, Spero Simeon Z. Paravantes reveals how the relationship between Britain and the US developed in this formative period. He argues that, in many ways, Britain used the fast-escalating tensions of (what would become) the Cold War to direct and manipulate US policy in Greece, encouraging the Americans to take a more active role and (essentially) take Britain's place in the region. In the process, he sheds fresh light onto how the American experience in Greece contributed to the formulation of the Truman Doctrine, the infamous NSC-68 document and the ultimate birth of the Cold War. Drawing on a wide range of sources from Britain, the US, Greece and across the Balkans, Paravantes has produced the first book to focus on this crucial period in such close detail, and reveals the ways in which various foreign and domestic concerns coincided at a pivotal moment of twentieth century history. This book is essential reading for all scholars looking to gain fresh insight into post-WWII Greece, the Anglo-American alliance and the complex origins of the Cold War. [less ▲]

The biggest problem for a shallow foundation, just as for any other type of foundation, is a failure due to an overestimation of the bearing capacity. This means that the correct prediction of the bearing capacity of the foundation is often the most important part of the design of a civil structure. That is why the publication by Prandtl in 1920 about the hardness of a plastic body, was a major step in solving the bearing capacity of shallow foundations, although it is well possible that he never realised this, because his solution was not made for civil engineering purposes, but for mechanical purposes. Over the last 100 years, a lot of extensions have been made, for example with inclination factors and shape factors. Also many laboratory experiments have been done and numerical calculations have been made. Some even try to extrapolate the failure mechanism for shallow foundations to the failure mechanism around the tip of a pile. All this scientific work leads back to the first publication by Ludwig Prandtl in 1920. This book, “100 Years of Prandtl’s Wedge”, is intended for all those who are interested in these fundamentals of foundation engineering and their history. The Appendices include a copy of Prandtl’s Über die Härte plastischer Körper and of Reissner’s publication of 1924, Zum Erddruckproblem. [less ▲]

This book is about how risk, energy and governance are intertwined in the development of the nuclear industry in India and its relationship with the Indian public. It provides a rare insider-view of how the nuclear establishment thinks about risk and contrasts that with public understandings of nuclear risk. Through that, the book presents a more nuanced picture of why nuclear energy is considered a rational choice in spite of the risks; the ambiguities in both expert and public risk perceptions; and the internal reflexivities that have emerged within the nuclear establishment as a result of the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster which are not displayed in the public discourse. The insights in this book are not unique to India and similar observations can easily be made in the global nuclear industry. Reflecting on what this means for risk governance in practice, the book proposes a toolkit that practitioners in the nuclear industry can use in public engagement, risk communication and deliberation at various stages of decision-making.

In an attempt to strengthen the legitimacy of EU policy-making, the 2009 Lisbon Treaty strengthened the principle of parliamentary control in EU affairs. This pertains to parliaments at all levels ranging from the regional to the supranational level. This book analyses the potential of regional parliaments – the parliaments closest to the citizens – to engage in EU affairs and to fill the perceived legitimacy gap. Eight member states have a total of 73 regional parliaments with legislative powers, and there are further trends towards decentralization in Europe. On its quest to understand the role that regional parliaments can plan in the EU multilevel parliamentary system, the book addresses key questions: What are the formal powers and functions of regional parliaments in EU policy-making? How do they use their powers in practice? How active are they in EU politics and what do they try to achieve? What factors can explain their degree of (in-)activity? [less ▲]

The question of which European or international institution should exercise public authority is a highly contested one. This new collection offers an innovative approach to answering this vexed question. It argues that by viewing public authority as relative, it allows for greater understanding of both its allocation and its legitimacy. Furthermore, it argues that relations between actors should reflect the comparative analysis of the legitimacy assets that each actor can bring into governance processes. Put succinctly, the volume illustrates that public authority is relative between actors and relative to specific legitimacy assets. Drawing on the expertise of leading scholars in the field, it offers a thought-provoking and rigorous analysis of the long debated question of who should do what in European and international law.

Why drama of multilingualism? Who cares about it? The book starts with a vignette on the (mis)understandings of the kindergarten situation around strawberries. By this vignette, I introduce different levels of power relations between children, parents and teachers around language use. I then use Nancy Hornberger’s (1989) Continua of Biliteracy model through which I broaden this vignette and describe the structure of the book: why I chose to deal with this subject, what is my approach, why I conducted the interviews and discussion with the experts and their students in the US and how I plan to integrate this into something novel worth reading. Through the interaction with the experts on the topic I had during the interviews I focus on several topics: the necessity of defining and theorising in a specific social context, power relations, language policy, linguistic creativity and criticality, support for multilingual identity, gap in research. I conclude by underlining the notion of whether there is more or less drama in this field and who cares about it. [less ▲]

Beyond the discourses and symbols, what does the concept of cross-border region actually entail? By characterising the region as the construction of an identity, a territoriality and a governance system perpetuated over time, this publication identifies and questions the specificities of these processes in the cross-border context. It distinguishes between inter- and supraregional cooperation thus questioning a border area's capacity to develop an ad hoc cross-border cooperation whose raison d'être consists in strengthening the commitments pertaining to the border area's interests. This study is underpinned by a discourse analysis and a conceptualisation of cross-border territoriality and supraregional institution. In this respect, the significance of the EGTC (European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation), a European instrument providing a legal framework for cooperation, is analysed. This issue is explored in depth using the emblematic case of the Greater Region, a border area that launched in 2008 a long-term strategy to develop a 'cross-border polycentric metropolitan region'. Composed of Lorraine (France), Luxembourg, Wallonia (Belgium), Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland (Germany), the Greater Region constitutes one of the oldest border areas (1971) and presents the highest concentration of cross-border workers in Europe.

Willy Mommer jun. (1921-1972), eminenter Vertreter der wohl bedeutendsten Eupener Musikerfamilie, erlangte als Dirigent, Komponist und Kulturmanager internationale Ausstrahlung. Doch hinter dem Künstler verbirgt sich auch eine der spannendsten Kriegsbiografien unserer Region. Als Funker beim deutschen militärischen Nachrichtendienst („Abwehr“) in Münster, Köln und Belzig bei Berlin konnte er sich durch seine pianistische Meisterschaft Zugang zum höchsten Machtzirkel des Militärs verschaffen und auf diese Weise den belgischen Widerstand und die britischen Nachrichtendienste mit kriegswichtigen Informationen versorgen. Marie-Claire Mommer und Christoph Brüll suchen in diesem Buch nach Spuren aus dem Leben Willy Mommers und verarbeiten sie zu einer literarischen und historischen Annäherung an eine Grenzen überschreitende Persönlichkeit und an einen leidenschaftlichen Europäer.

Major changes in EU tax law demand an analysis of not just the current state of the field, but also forthcoming EU-level policy initiatives and their likely implications for taxpayers, regulators, and national legislatures alike. This book, the first in-depth commentary and analysis of such developments, offers exactly that. Twenty EU tax and policy experts examine the impact of EU Treaty provisions and recent ECJ case law on EU tax law, and provide well-informed assessments of current and anticipated EU tax policy initiatives and their potential impacts.

Friedhelm Brusniak will have duly celebrated his sixty-fifth birthday with birthday cake, sparkling wine and other culinary delicacies in the family. The present academic birthday cake is addressed to the friend and colleague Friedhelm Brusniak in recognition of his life achievement. The authorship is composed of companions with whom Friedhelm Brusniak, on the one hand, was, closely connected during his long career as a scholar, and, on the other hand, with fellow researchers, he came later into contact as a networker in the international context. For the editor, it was important that the academic freedom of every one should be respected and that no restrictions should be imposed on the authors. The 21 articles, in four languages – German, English, French, Italian – are published in alphabetical order of the authors. (The only exception are the texts by Andreas Eschen and Anna-Christine Rhode-Jüchtern. They are related and printed successively.) The authors come from Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Hungary and the United States of America. The portrait at the beginning of the book was drawn by Barbara Plattner. The articles are preceded by four greeting messages, including a sounding one composed by longtime friend Heinz Werner Zimmermann. Although ordered without a thematic context, the contributions reflect the considerable spectrum of the long-standing scientific work of Friedhelm Brusniak. In addition to his ambitious work as a university professor and scholar, he did never refrain from accepting additional responsibilities, e.g. from 1994 to 2002 as President of the German Mozart-Society and from 2009 to 2013 as the first chairman of the Hermann Zilcher Society. The texts in connection with Leo Kestenberg occupy a large part of the book. This will be noted with satisfaction by Friedhelm Brusniak, president (since 2012) of the International Leo-Kestenberg-Society. Furthermore, the reader will find texts on choral, wind and amateur music research ("community music") as well as on questions of music education in a historical context and an empirical perspective. Also, the contributions cover a timeframe of more than 400 years. They deal s.l. with cultural heritage in a multi-faceted Europe and beyond. Finally, the essays with a philosophical-religious background and in connection with Freemasonry should be emphasized do not stand alone but should be considered as an integrative part. The editor is particularly satisfied and grateful from coming personally in contact with Karl-Heinrich Ehrenforth, the esteemed colleague and friend of Friedhelm Brusniak, and that Prof. Ehrenforth probably provided his last publication to this Festschrift. After his death, his daughter, Christiane Ehrenforth, granted permission to publish. Friedhelm Brusniak’s affinity for interdisciplinarity was met more unconsciously than consciously. He uses the term "interface research"! This has been the case for biography research since his employment with Conrad Rein as well as for musicological research from his home region Waldeck. This is especially true for choral music research, which became his central field of scholarship at the beginning of the nineties. Friedhelm Brusniak comes from a family wind musicians. In the research efforts of the International Society for the Research and Promotion of Wind Music (IGEB), he recognised the congeniality to choral music research, s.l. "community music". For many years now, his contributions to IGEB conferences have received much attention. Conversely, Friedhelm Brusniak received, since the beginning of the eighties, the decisive impulses from the IGEB under Wolfgang Suppan, which he was able to transfer to choral music research and to the Singer Museum in Feuchtwangen, where he serves as a scientific head. As a trained music educator and chair of the Department of Music Education at the University of Würzburg, Friedhelm Brusniak maintained European and international partnerships with music pedagogues, initially in the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Süd (AG Süd) and then in the Forum of European Music Pedagogy (FEMP). His connection with Luxembourg, at the intersection of French and German music pedagogic traditions, was a matter of concern to Friedhelm Brusniak. He was particularly inspired to detect and expand European networks. Please refer to Martin Straus, who provides a more detailed glimpse in the following article. The number of non-German authors is an impressive proof of Friedhelm Brusniak’s constant and interesting view across the borders of his country and his successfully established and maintained contacts.

Univers en perpétuelle expansion et au foisonnement chaotique, Internet offre un nombre incalculable d’outils, dont l’exploration paraît parfois hors de portée. Dans le paysage des sciences humaines, les blogs, les logiciels bibliographiques, les bases de données, les éditions en ligne et les wikis, tous ces objets qui éveillaient notre curiosité il y a une décennie, sont devenus aussi anodins qu’omniprésents. Mais comment bien s’en servir ? Les appréhensions face à ces outils — et leur simple mais robuste méconnaissance — sont encore largement répandues. Or on ne peut plus ignorer leur intérêt, voire leur nécessité et les chercheurs qui s’y essaient ne savent souvent pas par quel bout attraper ces logiciels nouveaux. C’est à cela que cet ouvrage veut les aider, de façon simple et précise, et il entend le faire sans en cacher les difficultés, mais sans dissimuler non plus qu’elles sont désormais connues, donc surmontables, et que, dans la majorité des cas, le résultat vaut tous les efforts à consentir.

Die vorliegende Veröffentlichung ist ein Ergebnis dreier Forschungsprojekte, darunter hauptsächlich „Musikgeschichte in Luxemburg“. Es wurde in den Jahren 2012- 2015 unter der Leitung von Damien Sagrillo durchgeführt und von der Universität Luxemburg finanziert. Mit der staatlichen Unabhängigkeit Luxemburgs im 19. Jahrhundert und der Errichtung eines Bischofsitzes im Jahre 1870 hat sich, neben der weltlichen, zudem die Kirchenmusik in Luxemburg etabliert. Die zweite Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ist geprägt durch die kirchenmusikalische Reformbewegung des Cäcilianismus, der seinen Niederschlag auch in Luxemburg hauptsächlich in der Person Heinrich Oberhoffers fand. Im vorliegenden Band wird – ergänzend zu Band 1, in welchem der Briefwechsel zwischen Heinrich Oberhoffer und Franz Xaver Witt thematisiert wurde – der Briefwechsel mit Witt im Zusammenhang mit Luxemburg als Faksimile und in transkribierter Form erstmals veröffentlicht. Vorangestellt sind biographische Skizzen von Witt und den Briefautoren in Zusammenhang mit Luxemburg, sowie eine Einführung in den Cäcilianismus.

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. Researchers and practitioners of many areas working on unlocking the content of old maps have contributed to this year’s program — humanities scholars, developers, computer and information scientists and map enthusiasts.

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 ▲]

Fondé au début du XIIIe siècle, le monastère de Sant'Apollinare de Milan fut l'un des centres de propagation les plus importants dans la Lombardie médievale de l'experience monastique féminine liée à la règle de François d'Assise. Le tabularium médiéval de Sant'Apollinare, à présent dispersé dans plusieurs archives et bibliothèques milanaises, préserve en outre des nombreux témoignages indirects du processus de transformation de l'appareil communal ambrosien vers les nouvelles formes de la Seigneurie, qui eut lieu à partir du milieu du XIIIe siècle. Dans ce livre, on propose l'édition critique de 109 chartes en latin provenant des anciennes archives de Sant'Apollinare - autant actes publics, surtout pontificaux et épiscopaux, que privés - remontant à la période entre 1204 et 1263, et actuellement conservées aux Archives de l'État de Milan.

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.

La notion de frontière normative ambitionne de faciliter l’analyse de l’Union européenne en tant que système constitutionnel cohérent aussi bien en interne qu'en externe. En externe, ce système influence différemment les ordres juridiques tiers. L’analyse du cas norvégien, suisse, liechtensteinois, voire du Brexit, souligne l’importance de l’appropriation politique du fait juridique d’intégration. L’analyse institutionnelle des relations suggère que l’objet de délimitation de l'espace européen n’est plus la divergence normative mais la compétence législative. En interne, l’analyse tridimensionnelle du système constitutionnel permet la coexistence des ordres juridiques des Etats membres et de l'Union au sein d’un même système constitutionnel formé conformément à leurs identités constitutionnelles respectives. Les relations normatives se formalisent via une dialectique matérielle indépendamment de la hiérarchie interne. Cette analyse invite à affiner le concept de primauté. L’ambition ultime est d’alimenter la réflexion sur le réajustement de l’analyse constitutionnelle des relations entre ordres juridiques en tenant pleinement compte de l’existence de l'Union européenne.
