This paper analyzes the role of banking in the transmission of sovereign debt default within a currency union. We build a 2-country (core and periphery) new-Keynesian model with an endogenous possibility of default on the periphery public debt. We introduce alternative banking representations, going from full integration to fragmentation. We calibrate the model on euro area data and show that the best fit to empirical data arises when we introduce some degree of fragmentation. However, we observe that a well integrated banking sector would reduce the negative consequences of default at the EA aggregated level and limit the welfare cost of stabilizing policies. [less ▲]

The theory of programmed instruction (PI), developed by a Harvard psychologist B. F. Skinner and heavily invested into in the spur of the Sputnik shock, became the toast of educational world during the decade of 1960s (Spaulding, 1967). Surprisingly for this peak decade of the Cold War, it also reached the Soviet Union: More than that, PI’s Soviet promoters did everything in order to secure place for research on programmed learning: PI was legitimated in front of thorough Communist Party ideologists who didn’t allow for any “Western import”, it was protected by the former military-turned-educational scientists, and established in the Institute of Cybernetics (Berg, 1961). During this time, PI was translated through and connected to a body of work and the network of psychological concepts that the discipline in the Soviet Union operated (Leontiev, 1959). Specifically, among others, educational psychologist and a devoted promoter of PI in the Soviet Union, Lev Landa, has developed the theory of algo-heuristic instruction and generically connected it to the theory of programmed learning (Landa, 1962). Soon in 1970s, Lev Landa expatriated to the United States and brought this Soviet version of programmed instruction back to its “homeland”. He established his company Landamatics in the heart of New York and started providing other companies’ middle management with educational services. His training constituted of a set of algorithms, units of information in a logically assembled and coherent way, very much like Skinner's conception of programmed learning decades ago. But this time, the algorithm became a certain externalized idealized structure of thought - that should be learnt and practised. Technically, Landa's enterprise represented the general and, to a large extent, shared belief of the time that is sometimes called the "Cold War rationality", the reinvention of the ideals of Enlightenment during the Cold War. The unique loop that programmed instruction travelled allows for a more profound understanding of the reinvention, the constant morphing of educational ideas in space and time. [less ▲]

This work reviews the monograph titled Private International Law in Commonwealth Africa. The reviewer considers the work to be very significant. The work builds on the previous works of the author (of the monograph) principally aimed at the development of private international law (PIL) in Africa. The reviewer situates the work in a larger context by interpreting the work and previous works of the author (of the monograph) as seeds for the development of a future African Union (AU) PIL. In this regard, the reviewer is able to select four major themes that justify the significance of the work in relation to a future AU PIL. These themes concern limitations on previous works on African PIL, the significance of PIL to AU economic integration, the impact of human rights and constitutional law on PIL in Africa, and a plea for cooperation as it relates to a future AU PIL. However, the reviewer exposes the scepticism as to a future AU PIL, and concludes that despite this scepticism, the work is significant enough to sow the seeds of a possible AU PIL. [less ▲]

The SOX genes form a gene family related by homology to the high-mobility group (HMG) box region of the testis-determining gene SRY. We have cloned and sequenced the SOX10 and Sox10 genes from human and mouse, respectively. Both genes encode proteins of 466 amino acids with 98% sequence identity. Significant expression of the 2.9-kb human SOX10 mRNA is observed in fetal brain and in adult brain, heart, small intestine and colon. Strong expression of Sox10 occurs throughout the peripheral nervous system during mouse embryonic development. SOX10 shows an overall amino acid sequence identity of 59% to SOX9. Like SOX9, SOX10 has a potent transcription activation domain at its C-terminus and is therefore likely to function as a transcription factor. Whereas SOX9 maps to 17q, a SOX10 cosmid has previously been mapped by us to the region 22q13.1. Mutations in SOX10 have recently been identified as one cause of Waardenburg-Hirschsprung disease in humans, while a Sox10 mutation underlies the mouse mutant Dom, a murine Hirschsprung model.

Biosphere reserves are considered as model regions for a sustainable development in which the relations between humans and the environment represent the focal point of research. However, only a few studies dealing with socio-economic questions have been carried out so far. Using the example of the still young Bliesgau biosphere reserve in Saarland, Germany, this contribution gives a first summary of its evaluation by the local population and first successes of the regional economy. The results of a quantitative survey provide information about the population’s awareness of institutions and offers, the disposition to actively participate and the perception of the Bliesgau biosphere reserve. Moreover, factors, which influence these aspects, are emphasized. By examining the regional economy, strengths and deficits, which inform about the regional added value, are pointed out additionally. The enforcement of regional economic cycles represents an important task in the Bliesgau biosphere reserve. Based on these results, our socio-economic studies provide the first basic principles and findings for future research as early as two years after the designation by UNESCO. [less ▲]

This article is an in-depth written version of a presentation at the seventh meeting and networking day for the social sector (“Praxis- und Kontakttag”) on October 24th 2019 at the University of Luxembourg. It analyses chances, risks and challenges for the social work profession in the context of digitisation. The article shows, that digitisation already is a part of everyday life in social work practice and that it should be considered an integrative component of a modern social work profession. As an example, the author describes and analyses the changing communication and interaction between three key stakeholders (recipients, professionals and organisations). She argues that the social work profession has to participate actively and shape digitisation processes in practice and research in order to design expedient and needs-oriented solutions. Furthermore, the active involvement of the profession is crucial to ensure compliance with its ethical and deontological principles and standards [less ▲]
