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.

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.

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 ▲]

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 ▲]

The present volume deals with the experience of ambivalence in family relations - a well-known phenomenon that has inspired more and more research and theorizing in the last years but that is however sometimes difficult to capture. Bringing together junior and senior researchers from different parts of the world, ideas on theory and research are elaborated following qualitative and quantitative approaches. This book thus contributes to theory-building as well as outlining research results and helping to develop measurement in interpersonal and intergenerational relations. [less ▲]

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 ▲]

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.

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.

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 ▲]

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.

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.

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 ▲]

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.

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.

Der Band "Der Erste Weltkrieg in der Literatur und Kunst" behandelt die Wahrnehmung und Verarbeitung des Kriegs in der europäischen Literatur. Der Band verfolgt zwei grundlegende Prinzipien. Anstelle einer vorgefassten 'Großthese' über den Verlauf des Krieges oder seine Folgen für die europäische Kultur geht es uns um die Kontingenz des historischen Geschehens. Zweitens entwickelt der Band eine komparatistisch geweitete Perspektive auf ganz Europa statt nur auf Deutschland oder nur auf Frankreich. Dabei weitet sich der Blick programmatisch auf die Perspektive auch der 'Kleinmächte' wie Luxemburg, Polen und Estland aus. Als innovativer Ansatzpunkt erlaubt dieser multiperspektivische Blick auf ein gemeinsam erlebtes, jedoch unterschiedlich erfahrenes Ereignis eine differenzierte Sicht auf einige Narrative um den Ersten Weltkrieg, [less ▲]

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 ▲]

Notre civilisation de classe moyenne est à la croisée des chemins. Alors qu'elle définissait le projet des démocraties modernes, elle fait face à des défis majeurs. La recristallisation en masse des inégalités, la mobilité descendante, l'écrasement du pouvoir d'achat des salaires relativement aux prix des biens immobiliers, la paupérisation de cohortes entières de jeunes surdiplômés et la globalisation porteuse d'une montée aux extrêmes de la concurrence forment ensemble une spirale de déclassement aux effets potentiellement dévastateurs. Les inégalités de classes et la fracture des générations se renforcent mutuellement : à raison de la dynamique de repatrimonialisation, les écarts au sein des nouvelles générations sont appelés à se radicaliser. Ce sont autant de phénomènes dissimulés sous le voile du déni, qui risquent de réduire à néant l'ambition de laisser à nos enfants un monde meilleur. À partir de données et de comparaisons internationales inédites, Louis Chauvel récuse ici les illusions qui aggravent nos maux. Car les dénégations qu'on oppose aux difficultés réelles des classes moyennes et populaires, des jeunes et de pans entiers de la société ne font qu'aiguiser les frustrations et un ressentiment général dont la traduction politique s'exacerbe.

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.

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. The International Workshop on Exploring Old Maps 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 as well as librarians, archivists and curators.

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.
