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.

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 ▲]

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.

Krieg, Krisen und Umbrüche, aber auch Fortschrittsglaube, Hoffnungen und Kontinuitäten kennzeichnen Europa im Zeitalter der Weltkriege. In der deutsch-belgischen Grenzregion führen Grenzverschiebungen zu Orientierungslosigkeit, aber auch Beharrung. Eupen-Malmedy ist zu jener Zeit Randregion zwischen zwei Vaterländern, die in ihm keinen Zwischenraum erkennen wollen. Identitätskonflikte polarisieren und radikalisieren die politische Auseinandersetzung. Krieg wird erlebbar. Gleichzeitig verändern Massenmedien wie Zeitungen, Radio oder das Kino die Sicht der Menschen auf die Welt. Neue Maschinen und Werkstoffe, Traktoren und Lkw erhöhen die Produktivität und Mobilität der Welt. Telefon und Wanderbewegungen sind äußere Zeichen einer Moderne, die in der kleinen Grenzregion Eupen-Malmedy gleichzeitig so nah und so fern sein kann. Auch aus dem Blickwinkel des situativen Opportunismus, der den Einzelnen je nach Lebenssituation zwischen Anpassung oder Verweigerung schwanken lässt, zeichnen die 19 Autoren ein anderes Bild dieser bewegten Zeit nach, die für das Verständnis des heutigen Ostbelgiens grundlegend ist.

Cet ouvrage s’inscrit dans le cadre d’une histoire jeune et très contemporaine, celle d’Internet, du Web et des cultures numériques et explore leur fabrique dans les années 1990 en France. Cette recherche, à la croisée de l’histoire des médias, de l’histoire de l’innovation, et de l’histoire sociale et culturelle, reflète les apports d’une approche française de l’histoire d’Internet et du Web. Matérialité et infrastructures, temporalités et trajectoires, espaces et territoires traversent les cinq chapitres du livre. Ils apportent des arguments au choix d’une analyse nationale d’un phénomène pourtant transnational, en s’intéressant à l’attribution des noms de domaine et à la francophonie au sein de la Toile, à la transition entre la culture Minitel et celle du Web, ou encore à la place d’un État qui passe du volontarisme et du monopole des télécommunications à la dérégulation et aux imaginaires des autoroutes puis de la société de l’information. Explorant les pratiques, difficultés, tâtonnements de la période et le tournant grand public du Web, on croise au cours de cette navigation des informaticiens, des entrepreneurs, des politiques, des passionnés de science-fiction, des militants, autant d’acteurs qui se confrontent, débattent, co-construisent. Ils vous invitent à les suivre dans un chantier entre « cathédrale et bazar », pour reprendre Eric Raymond, dont l’exotisme mais aussi l’actualité des débats ne cessent de nous frapper. Bienvenue dans le Cyberespace des années 1990 ! [less ▲]

In recent years, half of the newly constructed building floor areas in the world are built in China, thus it is important and interesting to know the Chinese design codes for buildings and compare them with Eurocodes, which are one of the most advanced design codes in the world. Funded by “Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships” the project “AVEC BNT” was started in 2016 to compare the design codes mainly related to concrete structures and composite structures. This script is the main intellectual outputs from this project. It comprises codes background analysis, direct codes terms comparison and design examples. The script covers most of the design topics related to design of concrete structures and composite structure for building design as well as the design basics such as safety concept. It is a common achievements of students, researchers and professors from different universities and instructions of different countries. The main work is done at University of Luxembourg especially for the design basics part and the design of composite structure of steel and concrete. For design of concrete structure part, University of Applied Science Trier (Germany) and Thei (Hong Kong, China) has offered great helps and contributed many parts. To conform with the goals of Erasmus+ to promote the cooperation and mobility with the EU’ partner countries and to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy, the script involves many student’s work. The students could participate in the project through either joining special courses offered by the project partners, as well as, doing a student project, bachelor or master thesis related to this project. Further more the students participated within the transnational teaching activity weeks. With the guidance, the students were able to learn and compare difference design methods by EuroCodes and Chinese design codes and to cooperate with their colleges from different countries. To achieve good quality of the final script, which can be used as additional information and learn material for other students and engineers to learn about Eurocodes and Chinese codes for structural design. Also the work was edited into a uniform formatting to make it constant in style and easy to read. Although, besides the contribution from students, many other topics were added to make the documents complete, it was not possible to cover every topic in the codes due to the limited time and resources. Thus, topics such as fire design, seismic design, bridge design, pre-stressed structures and others are not within the scope of the work. The scripts are divided into 7 sub chapters and many small topics. Each topic has two main documents for Eurocodes and Chinese codes. The main documents have same list of contents, which allows readers to compare the design aspects from the two codes systems easily side by side. Besides that, each topic is also provided with a general summary of comparison, which points out the most important difference and general overview of the design. In the documents not only the content of the codes but also the background information is discussed, which will help students and engineers to understand not only the difference of design but also the reasons behind it.

Wie haben die Institutionen des deutschen Hochschul-und Wissenschaftssystems die Entwicklung wissenschaftlicher Produktivität beeinflusst? Jennifer Dusdal zeigt, welche Organisationen Wissenschaft produzieren und wie sich ihre Ziele, Aufgaben und Arten von Forschung unterscheiden. Sie hat Zeitschriftenartikel aus den Natur- und Technikwissenschaften sowie der Medizin untersucht, die zwischen 1900 und 2010 publiziert wurden. So wird deutlich, dass die Universität die wichtigste Wissenschaft produzierende Organisationsform geblieben ist und die wissenschaftliche Produktivität aufgrund gestiegener Forschungskooperationen exponentiell gewachsen ist.

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.

Drawing on archives gathered in the six founding member states of the European Union, this book offers a new perspective on the "constitutionalization" of the European treaties, which was launched in the 1960s by the Court of Justice of the EU. By highlighting the professional and personal backgrounds of the first European judges and advocates general, its author studies the dynamics which prevailed within the institution during its "revolutionary" years and analyzes the Court’s relationship with the Member States of the European Communities. Through a detailed study of the selection process of the members of the Court, it also provides new answers to the question of whether governments tried to put an end to its bold jurisprudence.

While social change regarding trans(sexuality) has evolved within an expanding nexus of concepts, practices, regulations and institutions, this process has barely been analysed systematically. Against the background of legislative processes on gender recognition in a state formation shaped by heteronormative hegemony, this study traces how sexology, the law, federal politics and the trans movement interacted to generate or challenge concepts of trans(sexuality) from the mid-1960s to 2014 in the Federal Republic of Germany. The interdisciplinary study draws upon and contributes to debates in (trans)gender and queer studies, political science, sociology of law, sexology and the social movement. [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 ▲]

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 ▲]

A multitude of devices and technological tools now exist to make, share, and store memories and moments with family, friends, and even strangers. Memory practices such as home movies, which originated as the privilege of a few, well-to-do families, have now emerged as ubiquitous and immediate cultures of sharing. Departing from the history of home movies, this volume offers a sophisticated understanding of technologically mediated, mostly ritualized memory practices, from early beginnings in the fin-de-siècle to today. Departing from a longue durée perspective on home movie practices, Materializing Memories moves beyond a strict historical study to grapple with highly theorized fields, such as media studies, memory studies, and science and technology studies (STS). The contributors to this volume reflect on these different intellectual backgrounds and perspectives, but all chapters share a common framework by addressing practices of use, user configurations, and relevant media landscapes. Grasping the cultural dynamics of such multi-faceted practices requires a multidimensional conceptual approach, here achieved by centering around three concepts as central analytical lenses: dispositifs, generations, and amateurs.

Reparieren und Instandhalten sind ökonomisch wie kulturell zentrale Praktiken im »Leben« technischer Dinge und Infrastrukturen. Der Band rückt diese bislang wenig untersuchten Tätigkeiten in den Vordergrund und fragt nach den Wissensformen der unterschiedlichen Kulturen des Reparierens. Die Expertisen und politischen Ambitionen menschlicher Akteure finden dabei ebenso Berücksichtigung wie die Eigendynamik der Dinge. Die Beiträge untersuchen Praktiken wie die Uhr- oder Computerreparatur sowie Räume wie die Wohnung und das Krankenhaus, das Repair Café und die Stadt des Globalen Südens. Nicht zuletzt geht es um die Frage, inwiefern Reparieren und reparaturfreundliches Design zu mehr Nachhaltigkeit beitragen können. [less ▲]

This book offers new perspectives on Luxembourg history after 1940 focusing on lived experiences on the one hand and representations of gender in various media, on the other. It contains 27 articles. Some authors explore the significance of gender in politics, education and the arts (music, literature and film). Others investigate gender stereotypes in school books, advertisement, television and magazines. The book presents gender identities that transcend the male/female binary, yet shows that the latter remains hegemonial in many domains. [less ▲]

This volume analyzes sustainability-related innovations in the building sector and discusses how regional contexts articulate transition trajectories toward green building. It presents ‘biographies’ of drivers and processes of green building innovation in four case studies: Brisbane (AUS), Freiburg (GER), Luxembourg (LU), and Vancouver (CA). Two of them are relatively well known for their initiatives to mitigate climate change – particularly in the building sector, whereas the other two have only recently become more active in promoting green building. The volume places emphasis on development paths, learning processes, and innovations. The focus of the case studies is not restricted to purely technological aspects but also integrates regulatory, procedural, institutional, and other processes and routines and their influence on the variations of the building sector. The diversity of the selected case studies offer the reader the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of how sustainability developments have unfolded in different city regions. Case study-specific catalogues of transition paths provide insights to inform policy debates and planning processes. The catalogues identify crucial innovations (technological, regulatory, etc.) and explain the factors and circumstances that have led to their success and broader acceptance in Freiburg, Vancouver, Luxembourg, and Brisbane. With the help of a number of micro case studies within each of the four city regions, the case studies also offer ground for comparison and identification of differences. The book represents the outcome of the GreenRegio project, which stands for ‘Green building in regional strategies for sustainability: multi-actor governance and innovative building technologies in Europe, Australia, and Canada.’ GreenRegio was a 3-year CORE-INTER research project funded by the National Research Fund Luxembourg (FNR) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The European Account Preservation Order (EAPO) Regulation provides a protective measure for creditors wishing to freeze the bank account of their debtor, preventing the transferral or withdrawal of funds. Courts can issue freezing measures over bank accounts located in other member states, thereby establishing a new remedy for cross-border debt recovery in Europe. This book provides a detailed article-by-article commentary of the EAPO Regulation. It describes its legislative history and structure and carries out a critical analysis of its provisions and recitals, focusing on the practical implementation of the instrument. The commentary also provides additional focus on the interplay between the EAPO Regulation and the existing EU instruments and framework, and examines specific issues that the implementation of the Regulation might raise in member states. This is an important resource tool for practitioners, legal scholars and students interested in the theoretical and practical implications of the EAPO Regulation [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 ▲]

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 ▲]

La successione fra più imprese nell’esecuzione di un servizio organizzato determina conseguenze di rilievo sul piano dei rapporti di lavoro. Con importanza crescente rispetto alla disciplina legislativa, la contrattazione collettiva ha introdotto meccanismi identificabili con l’espressione «clausole di riassunzione», dirette ad assicurare, al ricorrere di talune circostanze, la continuità dell’impiego, la riassunzione o la priorità in future assunzioni per i lavoratori impiegati. Tali misure si risolvono in una limitazione a intensità variabile della libertà organizzativa dell’impresa che subentra nell’esecuzione del servizio. Questo libro si propone di rintracciare elementi utili a un inquadramento giuridico delle clausole di riassunzione previste dalla legge o contenute nei contratti collettivi, per saggiarne la compatibilità rispetto al quadro di regole e principi derivanti dall’interazione tra le fonti nazionali e il diritto dell’Unione Europea.

Que faire des fous ? Les enfermer, les éloigner, les soigner ? Sur les bords de Seine comme ailleurs, les réponses ont varié dans l’histoire suivant la compréhension des pathologies mentales et la capacité d’y apporter des soins. Mais Paris s’est illustré singulièrement en trois circonstances. En 1795, tout d’abord, quand l’utopie de la libération des aliénés a offert un écho aux idéaux révolutionnaires. À la fin du XIXe siècle, ensuite, alors que la psychiatrie française attirait tous les regards… y compris celui du jeune Sigmund Freud qui vint suivre les enseignements du professeur Charcot à la Salpêtrière. Et c’est dans les années 1950 que furent découverts à l’hôpital Sainte-Anne les neuroleptiques, inaugurant une « révolution chimique » appelée à bouleverser durablement les approches thérapeutiques.

In der Frage nach den Institutionalisierungen von Kindheit kreuzen sich die Perspektiven von Kindheitssoziologie und Erziehungswissenschaft. Der Band nimmt dies zum Anlass, deren Zugänge und Forschungserträge jenseits disziplinärer Demarkationslinien aufeinander zu beziehen und eine "Zwischenbilanz" der Entwicklung des Forschungsfeldes der childhood studies vorzunehmen. Dabei geht es sowohl um das Aufklärungspotential von aktuellen empirischen Studien und Theorieperspektiven als auch um die Reformulierungen, die Schlüsselkonzepte der childhood studies zwischenzeitlich erfahren haben.

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.

In wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) domain, the decision support tools are nowadays necessary in order to efficiently process the large databases generated with on-line sensors. In this paper a cooperative decision support system (DSS) is presented. This DSS uses a KPI-based fuzzy logic engine to analyse the plant performance and identify the operational conditions that occur in the plants. Then, it associates the detected operational conditions with YouTube pages in which videos are uploaded to provide details and propose suggestions. The YouTube platform is then used to share and validate suggestions by means of the comment functions and the 'likes'. This approach is innovative, free of costs, and useful for plant managers that can rely on a user-friendly platform. [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 ▲]
