The European Study on Adult Well-being (ESAW), funded by the European Union, was conducted during 2002 and 2003 in Austria, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Sweden. The aim of the interdisciplinary study was the conceptual clarification and the identification of factors contributing to life satisfaction for older people. Five key components were included in the study: (1) physical health and functional status; (2) self-resources; (3) material security; (4) social support resources; and (5) life activity. A representative population of adults aged 50-90 years living independently (not institutionalised) was selected in each participating country, and the actual sample size came very close to the target of 2,000, ranging from 1,854 to 2,417. The total European sample comprised 12,478 respondents. In this paper, mean differences in general and domain-specific life satisfaction between the six countries including age groups and gender are reported and discussed with respect to contextual national characteristics. In general the findings showed a high level in all chosen indicators of life satisfaction across the six countries. National differences depended on the domain under consideration, but the results showed in general that The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Luxembourg and Austria had higher values of life satisfaction compared to Sweden and Italy.

We present an empirical evaluation of the growth effects of the brain drain for the source countries of migrants. Using recent US data on migration rates by education levels (Carrington and Detragiache, 1998), we find empirical support for the "beneficial brain drain hypothesis" in a cross-section of 50 developing countries. At the country-level, we find that most countries combining low levels of human capital and low migration rates of skilled workers tend to be positively affected by the brain drain. By contrast, the brain drain appears to have negative growth effects in countries where the migration rate of the highly educated is above 20% and/or where the proportion of people with higher education is above 5%. While the number of winners is smaller, these include nearly 80% of the total population of the sample. [less ▲]

Cognitive adaptation in the elderly and the motivated use of temporal and social comparisons set the conceptual frame for the present study. Three research questions were investigated in a sample of 2.129 persons aged between 50 and 90 years. First, the direction of social and temporal comparisons for three domains (physical fitness, mental fitness, psychological resilience) was studied, and findings did show that especially lateral followed by upward comparisons were most frequent under both perspectives; downward comparisons clearly showed the least frequency. Second, the distribution of comparison directions was investigated across four age groups. These analyses showed that upward comparisons increased and lateral comparisons decreased across age groups; differential results were observed for the domains under consideration. Third, the relation between social and temporal comparisons and self-esteem was studied. Results obtained here indicated a motivated use of specific comparison directions since downward social comparisons and upward temporal comparisons were most frequent in persons with low self-esteem. Taken together, the study underlines the different functions of social and temporal comparisons in adulthood and old age; it indicates a predominant need for consensus and consistency, and it highlights the importance of self-esteem in cognitive adaptation.

Deutschland und Frankreich sind seit den 1960er Jahren wichtige Handelspartner, wobei im Raum Saarland-Lothringen eine Verdichtung grenzüberschreitender Wirtschaftskontakte auszumachen ist. Das Grenzgebiet ist Ausgangspunkt dieser Publikation, um interkulturelle Problemfelder der deutsch-französischen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen zu analysieren und adäquate Handlungsansätze zu entwickeln. Der Autor bringt zunächst Theorie und Methodik der Interkulturellen Kommunikation mit seinem empirischen Vorgehen in Verbindung und erläutert interkulturelle Herausforderungen, die Wirtschaftsstrukturen, Ausbildungssysteme, Sozialisations- und Kommunikationsstile in Deutschland und Frankreich einschließen. Auf dieser Grundlage erarbeitet er ein interkulturelles Qualifikationsprofil, das sich an den Erkenntnissen der Kooperationsforschung sowie der Internationalisierung von Berufsbildung orientiert. Weiterführend werden Möglichkeiten zur Integration des Profils in die Aus- und Weiterbildungssysteme aufgezeigt. [less ▲]

In this paper, we provide alternative measures of the brain drain by defining skilled immigrants as those arrived in the receiving country after age 12, 18 or 22. We use data on age of entry collected in a sample of OECD countries and then estimate the age-of-entry structure in the remaining host countries. The corrected brain drain rates are obviously below the global rates calculated in Docquier and Marfouk (2006). 1 [less ▲]
