This Book provides a comparative law analysis of the phenomenon of groups of companies, through an overview and summary of the information contained in the more than twenty National Reports presented to the International Congress on Comparative Law held in Fukuoka, Japan, in 2018, which make up this book. The General Report begins by surveying the manner in which the different legislations define and describe groups of companies, then goes on to study the varied approaches and solutions found in and offered by the legal systems analysed in the book, mainly for the protection of minority shareholders and that of creditors and other third parties, also mentioning some regulations pertaining to different areas of the law (such as labour, tax and competition law). As such, it provides an overall, but altogether detailed view of the phenomenon in legislations from various parts of the world, organized around the most relevant topics surrounding groups of companies.

The design and implementation of a trustworthy e-voting system is a challenging task. Formal analysis can be of great help here. In particular, it can lead to a better understanding of how the voting system works, and what requirements on the system are relevant. In this paper, we propose that the state-of-art model checker Uppaal provides a good environment for modelling and preliminary verification of voting protocols. To illustrate this, we demonstrate how to model a version of Pret-a-Voter in Uppaal, together with some natural extensions. We also show how to verify a variant of receipt-freeness, despite the severe limitations of the property specification language in the model checker. The aim of this work is to open a new path, rather then deliver the ultimate outcome of formal analysis. A comprehensive model of Pret-a-Voter, more accurate specification of requirements, and exhaustive verification are planned for the future. [less ▲]

This paper is concerned with the goal of maintaining legal information and compliance systems: the ‘resource consumption bottleneck’ of creating semantic technologies manually. The use of automated information extraction techniques could significantly reduce this bottleneck. The research question of this paper is: How to address the resource bottleneck problem of creating specialist knowledge management systems? In particular, how to semi-automate the extraction of norms and their elements to populate legal ontologies? This paper shows that the acquisition paradox can be addressed by combining state-of-the-art general-purpose NLP modules with pre- and post-processing using rules based on domain knowledge. It describes a Semantic Role Labeling based information extraction system to extract norms from legislation and represent them as structured norms in legal ontologies. The output is intended to help make laws more accessible, understandable, and searchable in legal document management systems such as Eunomos (Boella et al., 2016). [less ▲]

Background: Limited workplace control, an important dimension of job strain, can reduce occupational opportunities for problem solving and learning. Women may have fewer professional resources to mitigate effects of low control, while conversely, gender-role norms may moderate the influence of occupational psychosocial risk factors. We therefore examined if the links between control and cognitive function were similarly gendered. Methods: This observational, longitudinal study included respondents of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe who were aged 50-64 years at entry, employed, and provided at least two measurements of control and cognition (n=6,697). Relationships between control and cognition, quantified with standardised scores from verbal fluency, immediate and delayed word recall tests, were explored using linear fixed-effect and random-effect models with gender interactions. Results: Consistent trends of improved verbal fluency performance with high control were evident across analyses, equal to producing around three-quarters of a word more under high control conditions, with an effect size roughly equal to 0.1 standard deviation units (fully adjusted models, range 0.077-0.104 SD), although associations with recall tests were inconsistent. We did not find evidence of clear gender differences in control–cognition relationships for any of the cognitive domains. Conclusions: The cognitive health of older European workers may benefit from improved workplace control irrespective of gender. Possible sources of bias that could explain the lack of gender differences are discussed, particularly gender differences in labour force participation, response behaviour in job control ratings, and implications of gender-role norms on the importance of occupational risk factors.

La proportionnalité a progressivement pris une place centrale dans l’imaginaire juridique. Initialement conçue comme un principe régissant l’utilisation des pouvoirs de police, elle est aujourd’hui considérée comme un outil avancé de science constitutionnelle. Sa généralisation, accompagnée par le paradigme du droit constitutionnel global, est perçue comme irrésistible et naturelle. Cette recherche a été guidée par l’intuition que, même si les juristes à travers le monde raisonnent de plus en plus en termes de proportionnalité, celle-ci peut avoir des sens très différents, et ce, même au sein d’un seul système juridique. Les différentes utilisations du langage de la proportionnalité sont rarement étudiées en tant que telles. Pour autant, l’identification des sens locaux de la proportionnalité est cruciale si l’on veut comprendre sa propagation, apprécier son succès et évaluer les possibilités de convergence entre systèmes juridiques. Ce travail consiste en une étude approfondie et comparative de l’utilisation du langage de la proportionnalité parmi les acteurs juridiques en France, en Angleterre et en Grèce. Il cherche à montrer que les sens locaux de la proportionnalité ne sont pas simplement des applications imparfaites d’un modèle global. Au contraire, ils reflètent les cultures au sein desquelles ils évoluent, des chemins d’évolution culturelle propres à chaque système et des trajectoires locales d’européanisation. [less ▲]

One of the most dominant applications of Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication of 5G-NR is V2X communication. For such latency-critical V2X communication, the distributed resource allocation using Semi-Persistent Scheduling (SPS) algorithm designed for out-of-coverage (Mode-4) scenario leads to a high collision probability and requires profuse sensing processes. Therefore, a need for more efficient distributed resource allocation scheme is compelled. In this paper, we investigate the 3GPP proposed SPS scheduling algorithm for its performance and formulate the problem under partial sensing systems. Furthermore, we propose a Foreseeing Semi-Persistent Scheduling (F-SPS) algorithm as an enhancement to the existing methodology, and conclusively, simulations are presented to illustrate the improved performance of the proposed F-SPS scheme in terms of reduced collision probability with an optimised number of sensing processes.

Prior research shows that financial analysts play an important information intermediary role in France. This study extends earlier research to examine the effect of risk disclosure on the number of analysts following listed firms. Using a unique dataset of French firms on the 120 SBF index over 2007−2015, the results show a positive and significant relation between risk disclosure and analyst following, suggesting that firms having greater risk disclosure attract more financial analysts. These findings provide empirical support to the argument that analysts incur lower costs of information gathering in firms with greater risk disclosure. The demand for analyst services is also more valuable in these firms, given their potentially high exposure to risks, implying greater analyst following. Overall, our results are in line with prior literature highlighting that analysts’ activities complement annual report disclosures and, generally, corporate disclosures. [less ▲]
