(1) Research has shown that a poor psychosocial working environment can trigger workplace mobbing, which is a serious phenomenon that is costly to organizations and has various negative consequences of those targeted. (2) The present study describes psychosocial workplace predictors, prevalence and changes of workplace mobbing in Luxembourg for the last three years. (3) For measuring mobbing behavior, we use the Luxembourg Workplace Mobbing Scale (LWMS), a new short scale of workplace mobbing experience that was tested and validated in three different language versions (German, French and Luxembourgish). We use the first, second and third wave (planed for August 2015) of the Quality-of-Work-Index Luxembourg (Steffgen & Kohl 2013; Sischka & Steffgen 2015). Each wave is a representative sample of about 1530 employees working in Luxembourg (Data collection by Computer-assisted Telephone Interviewing). (4) Results of correlation and regression analysis with data of the first and second wave support the ‘psychosocial working environment’-hypothesis: Mobbing victims evaluate their psychosocial working environment worse (in terms of satisfaction, meaningfulness of work, respect of the superior and the whole organization, communication and feedback, cooperation among colleagues, mental strain) than persons that are not affected by mobbing. In addition, mobbing victims are more likely to report a higher stress level, symptoms of a burnout and addictive behavior, compared to non-victims. Finally, changes of mobbing exposure over the three measurement points will be discussed. (5) Focus of interventions for mobbing should be on improving the general quality of work and the collective working environment. [less ▲]

The aim of this paper is to study the utility variation related to the commuting mobility of University staff members due to their future workplace relocation. During the year 2012, a travel survey was completed by a total of 397 staff members, representing 36.4% of the university employees, who filled in a questionnaire which revealed complex decision making patterns due to the special traveling scenario involving four countries at once. A Multinomial Logit model has been used to anticipate the impact of university relocation from the capital city to a developing area in the south of the country which will happen between 2015 and 2018 and that will affect most of the employees. The effects of several Travel Demand Management measures are discussed based on the analysis of alternative scenarios [less ▲]

Given the current abundance of available digital resources for historians (retro-digitized as well as born-digital materials), there is an urgent question of how to engage with these resources in the history classroom. How do we teach the differences between "online" and "offline" materials and they ways in which historians can approach them? How do we deal with issues of decontextualization and the changes brought about in historical research practices by working with digital objects? The SourceLab project tackles these issues by letting students create digital editions of historical artefacts and thereby engage them in the making of history. The Ranke.2 project provides lessons that teaches students what digital source criticism is. In this workshop we will discuss in what ways teachers use digital resources in the classroom, and what strategies, if any, they use to sensitize their students to the specificities of online materials as opposed to those found in the archive. The outcome could be a working paper which discusses the pros and cons of various approaches. [less ▲]

The Treaty establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) signed in Paris on 18 April 1951, set up a number of institutions to carry out its activities: a High Authority, assisted by a Consultative Committee; a Common Assembly; a Special Council of Ministers; a Court of Justice. After the signing of the ECSC Treaty, an interim committee instructed to submit proposals concerning seats of the institutions, was unable to reach agreement. Many cities were suggested, such as Liège, Strasbourg, Turin or Saarbrücken. To break the deadlock in the negotiations, during the night of 24 to 25 July 1952 the Luxembourg Foreign Minister, Joseph Bech, made the proposal that the ECSC High Authority be provisionally located in Luxembourg. ‘Provisional’ became ‘definitive’, and the seat of the High Authority remained in Luxembourg until the Merger Treaty combined the executive bodies in 1965. On 10 August 1952, with the inaugural session of the High Authority, Luxembourg was the place where it all began. During our lecture at the Maison Robert Schuman, birthplace of Robert Schuman, one of the founding fathers of the European Union, we will present the country’s role in the European integration process during the 1950’s. The workshop is dedicated to discuss the different narratives on Europe’s history from a non-European perspective. The fieldtrip goes from the Maison Robert Schuman in Clausen to the Court of Justice of the European Union, which constitutes the judicial authority of the EU and, in cooperation with the courts and tribunals of the Member States, ensures the uniform application and interpretation of EU law.

This workshop deals with the potential that entertainment systems and games hold for the transportation context. Travelling by car, bus, plane or by foot can be frustrating and full of negative experiences, but also holds great potential for innovative entertainment application. New off the shelf technology offers great potential beyond old-fashioned rear seat entertainment systems with the sole purpose of keeping kids quiet. The richness of contextual factors and social situations have so far not sufficiently been exploited, which is why this workshop aims at discussing potentials for gaming in transportation. [less ▲]

The workshop will explore the core challenges associated with the increasing use of serious gaming in particular those systems that seek to persuade users to alter their behavior. The workshop will focus on three main areas: data privacy, trustworthiness and usability. The workshop particularly welcomes submissions from people who seek to bridge the divide between these topics. [less ▲]

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to address notions and practices relating to work–life balance for native German scholars and researchers who have migrated from the former Soviet Union (FSU). Issues will be explored from a cultural perspective, identifying culturally based interpretations of work–life balance. Design/methodology/approach Foregrounded in a diversity approach, this empirical study draws upon explorative interviews to discuss work–life balance in German academia. To overcome monocultural observations, 25 German scholars and 11 researchers originating from the FSU were interviewed, all of whom are highly skilled female scholars. Findings Findings demonstrate that individuals with diverse cultural backgrounds can perceive huge differences in identical working conditions. The study links meanings of work–life balance with individual practices and identifies key components of work–life balance within this population. It also discusses the decisions that scholars make about starting families or remaining childless for the sake of their careers. Originality/value This study is the first of its kind in Germany, and represents a strong implication for policies and their evaluation. It identifies the crucial role played by culturally rooted notions relating to work–life balance practices. [less ▲]
