Спустя семьдесят лет после окончания Второй мировой войны бывший люксембургский военнопленный решил найти своего старого русского друга, которого пригнали на принудительные работы в сталелитейной промышленности и сельском хозяйстве Люксембурга наравне с другими 4.000 узниками.

Люксембургская русская община ведет свой отсчет с 1927 года – десятой годовщины Февральской, а потом и Октябрьской, революции. Девяносто лет назад прибыли эмигранты, прошедшие Гражданскую войну и Крымскую эвакуацию 1920-го, положившую конец сопротивлению Белого движения на Юге России. Приехали в Люксембург, думая, что ненадолго, а остались... навсегда. [less ▲]

In urban areas where the infrastructure is dense and construction of new structures is near existing and sensitive buildings, frequently vibrations, caused by human activities, occur. Generated waves in the soil may adversely affect surrounding buildings. These vibrations have to be predicted a priori by using currently available knowledge of the soil dynamics. In order to make a good prediction of the soil surface vibration, it is necessary to perform calculations with a Finite Element Method (FEM). The disadvantages of the FEM are that this requires a special software package and a long time for the modelling and calculations. Therefore, it would be very useful to derive a simple model for engineering purposes, which could be used to predict geotechnical vibrations close to the source, without the need of special software and long calculations. Such a method is proposed in this article. This method is validated by a vibration test performed on a peaty site in the Netherlands. The predictions made with this method, have been compared with both the field measurements and the FEM calculations. The comparison proves that by using the presented vibration prediction method, the vibrations can be predicted as accurate as with the FEM. [less ▲]

La migration est probablement le « défi majeur » de l’Europe, aujourd’hui et dans les années qui viennent, comme le reconnaît Emmanuel Macron dans son discours de la Sorbonne de septembre 2017. On peut noter, par ailleurs, que la gestion de ce défi est à présent inadéquate : si 285.000 migrants ont été sauvés par des opérations coordonnées par l’Union européenne, 3.139 sont morts en 2017 ; en outre, l’état des droits des migrants dans l’Union et, surtout, dans les pays partenaires, reste problématique. Le « souverainisme de repli » n’assure aucune solution : « l’Europe seule peut, en un mot, assurer une souveraineté réelle » (Macron). Et la souveraineté de l’Europe – conçue comme la « capacité à exister dans le monde actuel pour y défendre nos valeurs et nos intérêts » – ne peut que s’assurer par la « solidarité » entre les Etats membres. Emmanuel Macron propose deux solutions au défi de la migration, qui paraissent toutefois insuffisantes ou illusoires : la création d’un « espace commun des frontières » vis-à- vis de l’extérieur et une gestion plus efficace de l’asile à l’intérieur de l’Union.

Le problème juridique posé par l’affaire Escuelas Pías concerne la qualification d’une école religieuse sans but lucratif en tant qu’« entreprise » au regard de l’article 107 TFUE 11, un problème qui dérive de l’attribution, par le droit espagnol, d’exonérations fis- cales aux institutions catholiques s’engageant dans des activités économiques. Dans sa réponse à la demande préjudicielle, la Cour de justice semble vouloir éviter de prendre une position trop nette : elle ne se prononce pas sur plusieurs questions concernant la compatibilité avec le droit de l’UE des exonérations fiscales pour les écoles catholiques ou elle en renvoie l’appréciation au juge national.

The primary question of the article is “What makes different people come to an unofficially organized group and do sports together on a daily basis?” Against the background of the societal norm to do sports in order to be healthy, each of the members of an informal sports group sets goals and objectives, ranging from keeping oneself fit, slim, or muscular; these objectives are juxtaposed with the specifics of their professional activity and intellectual work. Workouts within this group are an interesting example of the ambivalence of how people individually set own goals but need the group to achieve them. Furthermore, the goals are achieved through group-building by sharing common emotions such as suffering and empathy. This article is a part of ongoing research, which follows the grounded theory and analyses the group through observation of participants over first six months of the existence of the group. We conducted fifteen semi-structured interviews with the members of the group and performed qualitative analysis of documents. [less ▲]

Transition from study to work is considered as the end of youth. How doyoung people prepare to enter the labour market? What are the strategies youngpeople utilise to become employed if it occurs in another country, as in the case ofemployment mobility? To answer these questions, the proposed article focuses on howyoung people move and enter the employment in other destination countries.Alongside with the literature on youth and transition we also observe that youngpeople equally experience challenges of matching their skills in the destinationcountries. They relate to inequalities on the job market depending on their skills, theirqualifications, the type of jobs, their working experiences, etc. The discussions in thispaper thus first touch upon the topic of inequality with regard to the process ofrecruitment and becoming employed. Second, they draw attention to the inferiorpositioning that young people are prepared to put themselves into when entering thelabour market for the first time and emphasise the fact that young people oftenexperience discrimination and unequal treatment when they complete education andapply for jobs, on the grounds of being young and inexperienced. As a result, such apositioning often puts young people in a vulnerable situation, which they accept andendure as long as they are promised work. Furthermore, by focusing on how youngpeople enter the labour market in the receiving country, the paper also exploresstrategies that young people apply for being employed, becoming integrated in thelabour market, overcoming inequalities in employment and finding ways to cope withthese challenges in the labour market, as well as their own social lives in thedestination country [less ▲]
