In 1922, Harald Bohr and Johannes Mollerup established a remarkable characterization of the Euler gamma function using its log-convexity property. A decade later, Emil Artin investigated this result and used it to derive the basic properties of the gamma function using elementary methods of the calculus. Bohr-Mollerup's theorem was then adopted by Nicolas Bourbaki as the starting point for his exposition of the gamma function. This open access book develops a far-reaching generalization of Bohr-Mollerup's theorem to higher order convex functions, along lines initiated by Wolfgang Krull, Roger Webster, and some others but going considerably further than past work. In particular, this generalization shows using elementary techniques that a very rich spectrum of functions satisfy analogues of several classical properties of the gamma function, including Bohr-Mollerup's theorem itself, Euler's reflection formula, Gauss' multiplication theorem, Stirling's formula, and Weierstrass' canonical factorization. The scope of the theory developed in this work is illustrated through various examples, ranging from the gamma function itself and its variants and generalizations (q-gamma, polygamma, multiple gamma functions) to important special functions such as the Hurwitz zeta function and the generalized Stieltjes constants. This volume is also an opportunity to honor the 100th anniversary of Bohr-Mollerup's theorem and to spark the interest of a large number of researchers in this beautiful theory. [less ▲]

The European Union is a union under the rule of law and accordingly all exercise of public authority needs to conform with the principle of legality. The legal framework of the EU is, however, as much as that of any state or international organization, subject to change over time. That part of this legal framework specifically governing EU administration has been particularly dynamic. The central reason for this dynamism is to be found in the evolving nature of European integration, and in the changing requirements and conditions for implementing EU policies. The legal framework of administration has been both the subject of, and a response to, change in the ambient political and institutional environment. The EU, having started as an organization of six Member States focused on economic integration, has evolved into a Union of twenty-seven Member States now touching almost all elements of the exercise of public power in a modern society. The evolutionary development of the constitutional basis of EU law, with its many phases of Treaty reforms and change induced by case-law, finds its parallel in EU administrative law. European administrative law has in this process grown, changed, and indeed matured over time, and has emerged as an important, yet sometimes not well understood, factor which materially shapes policy in the EU and its achievement in reality. The rise of the importance of EU administrative law is itself attributable both to the specificities of European integration and to the general increase in the importance of administrative regulation in the past decades. On the one hand, the protection of the society against risks associated with private activity such as banking, food production, energy production and distribution, transport, or activities threatening to the environment, to name just a few, and the achievement of a balance between their benefits and dangers have become increasingly important subjects of attention. On the other hand, the provision of services and infrastructure necessary to ensure and protect basic standards of living such as pensions, health care, access to water, energy supply and telecommunications services have been the subject of mixed regimes, often still having a strong public service element, but increasingly left to private provision subject to various levels of market regulation. Both kinds of motivation for regulatory measures and their implementation by appropriate authorities have added to, and substantially changed, the broad character of public administration in Europe in recent decades. Such changes have occurred not just on a national, that is, Member State level, but also, pre-eminently, on the level of the European Community and now Union. Indeed, many of the changes have themselves been triggered on the European level as integral or at least adjuvant elements of the establishment of the European internal market. The role, then, of administrative law and administrative activity on the European level is extensive and important. Rules and principles governing the exercise of administrative functions, the organization of the institutions and bodies exercising these functions, and applicable procedures are the essence of EU administrative law. These are the subject of this book. There are, it must be observed, many perspectives from which one can view, analyse and comprehend both administration and administrative law. Three models or perspectives appear to us to be particularly helpful: administration and administrative law may be usefully considered from functional, organizational, and procedural standpoints. The functional aspect of administration refers to the totality of the tasks of administration, no matter who undertakes them and how they are carried out. The organizational perspective emphasises the organization and structure of the institutions, bodies, and actors engaged in undertaking such tasks. Finally, a procedural understanding of administration observes the processes which link the various actors and authorities in the performance of administrative functions. None of these models standing alone provides a fully rounded understanding or conceptualisation of the subject matter of the book. A proper analysis of EU administrative law cannot view it from only one of these perspectives. Taken together, however, these three standpoints do offer a comprehensive perception, giving the subject a more multi-dimensional shape, and thus allowing a more tractable presentation of what is very complex material. For this reason, we offer a discussion of each of these three perspectives — the functional, organizational, and procedural aspects of European Union administration and the associated legal framework — by way of introduction. The three models are, of course, closely interlinked and in reality scarcely separable but, for analytical and presentational clarity, they are here addressed separately. [less ▲]

This book describes Python3 programming resources for implementing decision aiding algorithms in the context of a bipolar-valued outranking approach. These computing resources, made available under the name Digraph3, are useful in the field of Algorithmic Decision Theory and more specifically in outranking-based Multiple-Criteria Decision Aiding (MCDA). The first part of the book presents a set of tutorials introducing the Digraph3 collection of Python3 modules and its main objects such as bipolar-valued digraphs and outranking digraphs. The second part illustrates in eight methodological chapters multiple-criteria evaluation models and decision algorithms. These chapters are mostly problem oriented and show how to edit a new multiple-criteria performance tableau, how to build a best choice recommendation, how to compute the winner of an election and how to rank or rate with incommensurable criteria. The book's third part presents three real decision case studies, while the fourth part addresses more advanced topics, such as computing ordinal correlations between bipolar-valued outranking digraphs, computing kernels in bipolar-valued digraphs, testing for confidence or stability of outranking statements when facing uncertain or solely ordinal criteria significance weights, and tempering plurality tyranny effects in social choice problems. The last part is more specifically focused on working with undirected graphs, tree graphs and forests. The closing chapter explores comparability, split, interval and permutation graphs. The book is primarily intended for graduate students in management sciences, computational statistics and operations research. Chapters presenting algorithms for ranking multicriteria performance records will be of computational interest for designers of web recommender systems. Similarly, the relative and absolute quantiles-rating algorithms, discussed and illustrated in several chapters, will be of practical interest for public or private performance auditors. [less ▲]

La chute de Napoléon, en 1814, marque l’entrée de la France dans un régime d’opinion, résultat d’une mutation de la culture politique qui voit le discours sur la chose publique gagner l’espace extra-parlementaire, donnant lieu à des formes de discours codifiées opposées à celles du débat politique officiel. Dans ce cadre, le pamphlet du premier XIXe siècle apparaît comme le catalyseur et le fruit privilégié de cet abandon progressif des formes longues de l’éloquence politique ; sous la plume de Paul Louis Courier, il se mue en une forme de parole codifiée et stabilisée, avec sa rhétorique, ses images et ses protagonistes (le « je » pamphlétaire en particulier). Or la place centrale accordée à l’auteur pose la question de la légitimité de la pratique polémique, et partant des stratégies mises en place par les pamphlétaires pour justifier leur entreprise de dénonciation ; c’est à ces questions que ce livre est consacré.

I introduce the book starting by my own personal experience of growing up in a mixed family and being myself in a mixed marriage. I describe the structure of the book by building up my own method: how I chose this topic, who were the people I interviewed, how (interviews, stories, and objects) and why was the single-but-critical instances analysis important. I focus on the richness of the interaction I had with the interviewees. I underlie the phenomenological stories of struggles, trust and vulnerability. The chapters resolve around power relations, expressing affection, in-depth communication, child rearing, conflict resolution strategies, empathy, female identity, future planning, the role of humor, the biggest cultural and linguistic challenges and opportunities. The focus is on the phenomenon captured in single-but-critical instances in participants' stories. I conclude by describing what significance culture has in intimate intercultural relationships.

Proportionality increasingly dominates legal imagination. Initially conceived of as a principle that regulates police action, today it is progressively established as an advanced tool of liberal constitutional science. Its spread, accompanied by a global paradigm of constitutional rights, appears to be an irresistible natural development. This thesis was inspired by the intuition that even though courts and lawyers around the world reason more and more in proportionality terms, proportionality can mean very different things in different contexts, even within the same legal system. While the relevant literature has paid little attention to differences in the use of proportionality, identifying the local meanings of proportionality is crucial to making sense of its spread, to assessing its success, and to appraising the possibility of convergence between legal systems. Through an in-depth study and comparison of the use of proportionality by legal actors in France, England and Greece, this work shows that the local meanings of proportionality are not simply deviant applications of a global model. Instead, they reflect the legal cultures in which they evolve, local paths of cultural change and local patterns of Europeanisation. [less ▲]

Following the Treaty of Versailles, European nation-states were faced with the challenge of instilling national loyalty in their new borderlands, in which fellow citizens often differed dramatically from one another along religious, linguistic, cultural, or ethnic lines. Peripheries at the Centre compares the experiences of schooling in Upper Silesia in Poland and Eupen, Sankt Vith, and Malmedy in Belgium — border regions detached from the German Empire after the First World War. It demonstrates how newly configured countries envisioned borderland schools and language learning as tools for realizing the imagined peaceful Europe that underscored the political geography of the interwar period.

The current legal framework for online content dissemination has proven insufficient to effectively combat illegal content. The Commissions' proposal for an EU ‘Digital Services Act’ aims to update the horizontal framework for intermediaries and create a safe online environment. However, as far as content mediation is concerned, European fundamental rights and values require that the specificities of media law must be taken into account. This study, conducted by the Institute of European Media Law (EMR) on behalf of the Media Authority of NRW, describes the current legal framework and the DSA proposal, and provides a comprehensive assessment from the perspective of media law, complemented by alternative proposals for further improvement.

Le Règlement 655/2014 a établi une Ordonnance européenne de saisie conservatoire (OESC) des comptes bancaires permettant aux juges des Etats membres d’ordonner la saisie de comptes bancaires situés dans d’autres Etats membres et, le cas échéant, de rechercher des informations permettant d’identifier l’existence de comptes bancaires dans d’autres Etats. Entrée en vigueur depuis 2017, cette procédure européenne, quoique uniforme, n’est pas complète et nécessite une application coordonnée des dispositions du Règlement avec les règles nationales applicables aux institutions équivalentes des Etats membres (saisie conservatoire, saisie-arrêt). L’ouvrage propose un commentaire systématique des dispositions du Règlement et une analyse des problèmes de mise en œuvre qu’il soulève, en particulier dans le cadre de leur coordination avec les dispositions de droit national. Il se concentre plus particulièrement sur l’application du Règlement en France, en Belgique et au Luxembourg, dont les droits des mesures conservatoires sont différents, et qui ont choisi d’offrir des procédures de recherche des informations très différentes. L’ouvrage est une source indispensable pour les avocats spécialisés dans le recouvrement des créances, pour les huissiers de justice et pour les banques tiers-saisi. [less ▲]

International migration originating from highly developed countries is a crucial component of global migration flows. There are, however, surprisingly little data about the international mobility of the populations of affluent countries. The German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study (GERPS) aims to provide a resource that enables the analysis of individual consequences of international migration as well as the socio-structural consequences for the country of origin. GERPS is based on an origin-based multistage probability sample using the German population registers as a sampling frame. The second wave yields a net sample of roughly 7,000 persons who recently moved abroad from Germany and persons who returned from Germany after having lived abroad. The study follows a multidestination- country-design and enables the comparative analysis of migrants and nonmigrants, who stayed in the country of origin. GERPS is a panel study with at least four waves during a period of at least 24 months. This documentation presents the methods and data of the second wave. It provides information for researchers and invites them to use the new data infrastructure for their own research. [less ▲]

By acknowledging the flexible and complex nature of the precautionary principle under EU law and by referring to methodological pluralism, the goal of this book is to provide a polycentric interpretation of this principle based on diversity rather than uniformity. The polycentric interpretation is anchored in the construction of the conceptual network of the precautionary principle. This allows for the unitas multiplex between the different definitions and applications of this principle to be identified and assessed. The core claim of the book is that the polycentric interpretation of the precautionary principle can be built on two concepts: anticipation and action that represent the two main knots of its conceptual network. These knots are not isolated, but they are connected via some links to other knots that constitute the main concepts allowing identifying and applying the precautionary principle under EU law.

Die Erstellung des nationalen Berichtes zur Situation der Jugend in Luxemburg geht auf den Artikel 15 (1) des Jugendgesetzes vom 4. Juli 2008 zurück, wonach der Minister, zu dessen Zuständigkeitsbereich die Jugendpolitik gehört, der Abgeordnetenkammer alle fünf Jahre einen Bericht vorlegt. Nach dem ersten Bericht im Jahr 2010, der als Gesamtbericht verschiedene Themen behandelte, thematisierte der zweite Bericht im Jahr 2015 die Übergänge vom Jugend- ins Erwachsenenalter. Der thematische Schwerpunkt des vorliegenden dritten Berichtes ist das Wohlbefinden und die Gesundheit von Jugendlichen in Luxemburg. Der Bericht umfasst zwei Teile: eine wissenschaftliche Analyse und Bestandsaufnahme, die von dem Centre for Childhood and Youth Research (CCY) an der Universität Luxemburg erstellt wurde, sowie einen Beitrag des Ministeriums für Bildung, Kinder und Jugend, welche den Kontext erläutert und die zukünftigen Schwerpunkte der luxemburgischen Jugendpolitik reflektiert. Bei der wissenschaftlichen Analyse und Bestandsaufnahme stehen die Jugendlichen und ihre subjektiven Sichtweisen, ihre Bewertungen und Handlungen im Zusammenhang mit ihrem Wohlbefinden und ihrer Gesundheit im Fokus. Der Bericht zeigt auf, (1) wie Jugendliche ihr Wohlbefinden und ihre Gesundheit einschätzen, (2) was Jugendliche für ihr Wohlbefinden und ihre Gesundheit tun oder nicht tun, (3) welche Bedeutung das soziale Umfeld für das Wohlbefinden der Jugendlichen hat, (4) wie Jugendliche die Covid-19-Pandemie und die Maßnahmen wahrnehmen und (5) wie luxemburgische Experten über das Wohlbefinden und die Gesundheit Jugendlicher diskutieren. Die Datengrundlage bilden vor allem die eigens für den Bericht erhobenen Daten aus standardisierten Umfragen und qualitativen Interviews. Um die Veränderung der Situation der Jugendlichen durch die Covid-19-Pandemie zu beschreiben, wurde während der Erarbeitung des Jugendberichtes eine weitere Studie entwickelt und durchgeführt, deren Ergebnisse im Bericht gesondert dargestellt werden. Der Bericht liefert eine umfassende Informationsgrundlage für die zukünftige Ausrichtung und Weiterentwicklung der Jugendpolitik der luxemburgischen Regierung, die in einem nationalen Jugendpakt zusammengefasst wird. Er richtet sich sowohl an Fachleute in den verschiedenen jugendrelevanten Arbeitsfeldern als auch an Studierende und alle Leserinnen und Leser, die an fundierten Informationen zur Jugend in Luxemburg und deren Wohlbefinden und Gesundheit interessiert sind.

With a special focus on safeguarding media pluralism, this study sheds light on the allocation of competences between the EU and the Member States in the media sector. Not only is the primary and secondary legal framework analysed in detail, but the relevant elements for ensuring media pluralism at EU level and core problems in media regulation under public international law are also examined. The study identifies both existing and potential tensions between national and EU level as well as limits to EU regulatory action. The analysis is put into context with the EU Digital Services Act Package and concludes with the identification of policy options for Member States. [less ▲]

Qu’est-ce que la philosophie ? Pour Deleuze, il s’agit de la création de concepts qui répondent chacun à un problème précis. Selon la théorie du concept deleuzienne, les concepts philosophiques partagent en plus une certaine forme : une multiplicité de composantes, un volume absolu, des variations intensives, un ordre de voisinage. Or, cette interprétation de l’activité philosophique est à son tour un concept : « le concept de concept. » Comme tout autre, ce concept répond à un problème – « quel est le propre de la philosophie ? » – et il recèle une multiplicité, un volume, des variations, un voisinage. Même si le concept de concept saisit l’essentiel de l’activité philosophique, on pourra alors croire qu’il est d’une portée limitée et voué à être dépassé comme n’importe quel autre concept. Sinon, il encourt le risque d’auto-réfutation : vrai sur le fond mais faux dans la forme. L’étude présente demande sous quelles conditions la théorie du concept deleuzienne peut échapper à ce sort et propose une lecture transcendantale selon laquelle le concept de concept est la condition de l’expérience et du discours philosophiques.

Les différents chapitres de ce livre proposent une approche holistique pour faire évoluer le système de santé vers le partenariat de soins. Résultat de trois années de recherche et de concertation, le Livre Blanc s’appuie sur des recherches documentaires (analyse de la littérature scientifique et de la législation spécifique de chaque pays), des entretiens et des enquêtes auprès de nombreux acteurs, le repérage et l’analyse d’initiatives en GR et la discussion orientée vers le consensus. Par ailleurs, les propositions de recommandations ont été élaborées et discutées lors d’un séminaire interrégional réalisé en décembre 2019. Le Livre Blanc est structuré en 5 parties qui s’adressent chacune à un public ciblé. La première partie situe le contexte dans lequel s’est réalisé le projet et décrit la méthodologie du programme. La seconde partie est consacrée aux aspects réglementaires de l’approche patient partenaire et à leurs conséquences sur les pratiques et les initiatives analysées sur le terrain. Elle est destinée de manière privilégiée aux mandataires politiques. La troisième partie propose une réflexion sur le développement de stratégies de partenariat au niveau des institutions de santé. Elle concerne les gestionnaires des établissements de santé. La quatrième partie vise à amener les professionnels à s’interroger sur ce que le partenariat de soins peut leur apporter dans leurs pratiques de soins. Elle s’adresse, en particulier, aux acteurs en contact direct avec les patients. La cinquième et dernière partie suggère différentes voies possibles de développement de l’APPS dans les domaines de l’enseignement et de la recherche. Toutes ces parties s’adressent bien évidemment au patient, qui est au coeur de l’APPS. Les prises de position proposées par ce Livre Blanc s’appuient sur les données collectées par le consortium de recherche de 2017 à 2020. Dès lors, ce document ne peut être exhaustif et est appelé à évoluer, basé davantage sur une fonction vectrice de normes que de règles.

Regional (sub-)groupings have played a significant, but comparatively neglected role in the processes of European integration. The BENELUX and the Nordic Council both offer longstanding models of regional cooperation which have, in various ways, often been cited as examples for the wider European integration project. More recently, both the Visegrád and Baltic states have seen the (re-) emergence of forms of regional cooperation in connection with their accession to and later membership of the European Union. Yet, though often cited, these experiences of (sub-)regional cooperation within the wider European project have been the object of relatively little systematic or comparative study. The aim of the edited volume is to address this gap by bringing together specialists on these regional groupings with a view to providing a fuller understanding of both their historical significance and their possible future role relative to a potentially fragmenting European political landscape.

After World War II, as Europe floundered economically, British Prime Minister Clement Attlee looked to disengage Britain from some of its broad international obligations and increase American support for its new foreign agenda. One place he sought to do so was in Greece, which was in the midst of a civil war. Through an in-depth study of Anglo-American diplomacy in Greece from 1946-50, Spero Simeon Z. Paravantes reveals how the relationship between Britain and the US developed in this formative period. He argues that, in many ways, Britain used the fast-escalating tensions of (what would become) the Cold War to direct and manipulate US policy in Greece, encouraging the Americans to take a more active role and (essentially) take Britain's place in the region. In the process, he sheds fresh light onto how the American experience in Greece contributed to the formulation of the Truman Doctrine, the infamous NSC-68 document and the ultimate birth of the Cold War. Drawing on a wide range of sources from Britain, the US, Greece and across the Balkans, Paravantes has produced the first book to focus on this crucial period in such close detail, and reveals the ways in which various foreign and domestic concerns coincided at a pivotal moment of twentieth century history. This book is essential reading for all scholars looking to gain fresh insight into post-WWII Greece, the Anglo-American alliance and the complex origins of the Cold War. [less ▲]

The historical work of the Russian-born migration researcher Dr Inna Ganschow describes the migrations from Russia to Luxembourg in the 20th and 21st centuries. The broad representation of the migration flows between the two countries is illustrated with a lot of data and facts and with numerous, often previously unpublished documents and pictures. A large number of individual and family fates are described, which can be traced to this day in the Luxembourg population. It is the first comprehensive publication on this subject. The book is based on several years of research carried out within the framework of the Center for Contemporary and Digital History of the University of Luxembourg (C2DH). Thanks to her language skills, the author was able to use Russian archives and gain new insights into, among other things, the history of the Luxembourg conscripts in Tambov. She also made contact with descendants of the emigrants in Luxembourg and discussed their history in numerous conversations, which are reflected in the book. The recent Russian emigration is also duly presented. [less ▲]

Multilingual Approaches for Teaching and Learning outlines the opportunities and challenges o multilingual approaches in mainstream education in Europe. The book, which draws on research findings from several officially monolingual,bilingual, and multilingual countries in Europe, discusses approaches to multilingual education which capitalise on students’ multilingual resources from early childhood to higher education. This book synthesises research on multilingual education, relates theory to practice, and discusses different pedagogical approaches from diverse perspectives. The first section of the book outlines multilingual approaches in early childhood education and primary school, the second looks at multilingual approaches in secondary school and higher education, and the third examines the influence of parents, policy-makers, and professional development on the implementation and sustainability of multilingual approaches. The book demonstrates that educators can leverage students’ multilingualism to promote learning and help students achieve their full potential. This book will be of great interest to academics, researchers, and postgraduate students in the fields of language education, psychology, sociolinguistics, and applied linguistics. [less ▲]

In this provocative intellectual biography, architectural historian Mark Wigley makes the surprising claim that the thinking behind modernist architect Konrad Wachsmann’s legendary projects was dominated by the idea of television. While architecture is typically embarrassed by television, preferring to act as if it never happened, Wachsmann fully embraced it. Investigating the archives of one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century, Wigley scrutinizes Wachsmann’s design, research, and teaching, closely reading a succession of unseen drawings, models, photographs, correspondence, publications, syllabi, reports, and manuscripts to argue that Wachsmann is an anti-architect—a student of some of the most influential designers of the 1920s that dedicated thirty-five post–Second World War years to the disappearance of architecture. Wachsmann turned architecture against itself. His hypnotic projects for a new kind of space were organized around the thought that television liberates a different way of living together. Wachsmann dissolved buildings into pulsating mirages that were a huge influence on the experimental avant-gardes of the 1960s and 1970s. But Konrad Wachsmann’s Television: Post-architectural Transmissions demonstrates that this work was even more extreme than the experiments it inspired. The book offers a forensic analysis of a career to show that Wachsmann developed one of the most compelling manifestos of what architecture would need to become in the age of ubiquitous electronics.

Para-Platforms investigates the social, spatial, and material reality of right-wing populism. Three case studies—presented in a symposium organized by Markus Miessen at the Gothenburg Design Festival in November 2017—form the core of this collection of essays: journalist Hannes Grassegger on Trump and Brexit; architectural theorist Stephan Trüby on spaces of right-wing extremism in Germany; and Christina Varvia on Forensic Architecture’s investigation of the murder of Halit Yozgat, a young German man of Turkish descent, at the hands of a far-right group in 2006. The presentations are reproduced along with the ensuing conversations with Miessen and the audience members. An essay by design scholar Mahmoud Keshavarz opening the book discusses the capacity of design to create conditions for certain politics to occur. Among the other theoretical, artistic, and historical contributions in the reader, editor Zoë Ritts interviews artist Wolfgang Tillmans regarding his pro-EU poster series, the ongoing project truth study centre, and guest-edited volume What Is Different? The volume concludes with a comic by artist Liam Gillick animating a block of granite—culled from the Swedish quarry responsible for extracting the red granite intended for the Third Reich’s architectural ambitions—as the messiah of spatial and material politics.

Can the rules of the European Union’s E-Commerce Directive, which date back to the year 2000, continue to be valid with regard to the dissemination of content in view of the constantly evolving online environment and the changing role of platforms as a result of new business models? The relevant legal foundations in this respect at EU and national level are complex, and their interplay is often unclear. The resulting uncertainty about who is responsible and therefore liable for certain content requires a critical review of the current legal framework. This study, conducted by the Institute of European Media Law (EMR) on behalf of the State Media Authority NRW, analyses the current legal framework and reveals ways of enforcing the applicable provisions concerning illegal content. It pays special attention to the need for reform of the E-Commerce Directive in light of the changing role of platforms. [less ▲]

Nos résultats appellent également à un développement de la culture de l’approche patient-partenaire de soins. Même si ce genre de démarche, favorisant l’implication du patient, est recommandé depuis de nombreuses années, c’est tout le paradigme de l’organisation des systèmes de santé qui doit évoluer en parallèle à l’évolution des besoins sanitaires. Ce paradigme touche aux valeurs, aux représentations de ce que constitue l’acte même de soigner. L’exploration menée auprès des professionnels de santé et des patients révèle des envies d’évolution des pratiques de soins et de la relation soignant-soigné. Cependant, ces volontés sont freinées par des ambiguïtés sur le concept même du patient-partenaire de soins, une connaissance et des compétences limitées en matière d’approche patient-partenaire de soins et des éléments de contexte de travail qui rendent cette évolution impossible. Le point positif est la mise en évidence d’une volonté commune d’évoluer vers un patient plus acteur dans les soins, plus autonome, avec une série d’avantages perçus. On peut dire qu’il existe un décalage important entre la vision souhaitée et ce qui est actuellement possible. Notre projet a permis d’observer une volonté affichée d’évoluer vers davantage d’engagement du patient dans la relation de soin et dans les structures de soins de santé. Le développement attendu passera par une approche systémique de l’engagement tant sur des aspects micro (de la relation de soin) méso (dans la coordination des structures de soins) et macro (avec l’engagement des politiques de santé). Le développement doit s’appuyer sur les initiatives existantes : en ce sens le projet Interreg est une belle façon de promouvoir les échanges de bonnes pratiques au service de cet engagement du patient.

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 ▲]

From complex multi-players to casual gaming: video games are the most common virtual environment for entertainment that younger generations spend a significant time in. Although early game titles already featured morality-related topics, implementing meaningful eudaimonic playing based on moral decision making has become increasingly popular. Unfortunately, scientific analyses of game-related moral decisions mostly revolve around the effects of players engaging in virtual violence, leading to ongoing heated debates in academia and the general public (e.g., Anderson et al., 2010; Ferguson, 2007). To date, however, only few studies have tried to disentangle the moral aspects of video games from virtual violence (e.g., Joeckel, Bowman, & Dogruel, 2012). The present chapter provides an overview on both established and novel theories on psychological processing of moral decision making in virtual worlds in line with cutting-edge game examples. These theories aim at explaining how games can elicit moral processing as well as the factors that modulate these processes once the player is morally engaged. Based on i.a. aspects of the theory of presence (Biocca, Harms, & Burgoon, 2003; Tamborini & Skalski, 2006), moral disengagement (Bandura, 2002; Hartmann & Vorderer, 2010) and a dual process model of moral judgement (Greene, Sommerville, Nystrom, Darley, & Cohen, 2001; Gubbins & Byrne, 2014; Haidt, 2001), a new model is proposed. Furthermore, individual characteristics such as playing experience, player motivation and moral salience according to the moral foundations theory (Haidt & Joseph, 2008; Tamborini, 2011) are integrated in the model.

L’ouvrage présente de manière systéma-tique les règles de droit international privé applicables au Grand-Duché du Luxem-bourg. Ce premier volume est consacré à la détermination de la loi applicable et expose la théorie générale du conflit de lois ainsi que les solutions particulières concernant les obligations (contrats, délits, régime gé-néral de l’obligation), les biens (corporels et incorporels) et les sociétés (y compris en cas d’insolvabilité).A l’instar du droit des autres Etats membres, le droit international privé luxembourgeois est dominé par des sources d’origines européenne et internationale. Sa spécificité demeure forte, cependant, car le Luxembourg a ratifié des conven-tions internationales différentes de ses grands voisins francophones et adopté des normes nationales qui s’inspirent de plu-sieurs expériences juridiques étrangères, mais peuvent aussi être originales. Sans négliger la jurisprudence européenne, l’ouvrage tente enfin de rassembler la ju-risprudence des juridictions luxembour-geoises en la matière qui, à nouveau, si elle s’inspire le plus souvent de la jurisprudence française, s’en écarte parfois.

Une blockchain (chaîne de blocs) est une application informatique qui utilise des techniques cryptographiques permettant à des entités de réaliser entre elles des opérations sans l'intervention d'un tiers de confiance (banques, notaires...). Les blockchains se répandent dans l'économie sous forme par exemple de nouvelles monnaies (bitcoins, ether...), mais aussi de contrats ou de certifications dans les assurances, dans les affaires (smart contracts), dans le droit... Ces technologies de rupture ne sont pas simples à comprendre que ce soit dans leur fonctionnement informatique (horodatage et immutabilité des blocs) ou dans leurs conséquences pour l'utilisateur (valeur de la preuve, recours possibles...). La meilleure façon d'aborder ce sujet complexe est de répondre point par point aux multiples questions que les utilisateurs potentiels se posent. [less ▲]

Beobachtungen zu Permanenzen und Wandel stehen im Zentrum der Skizze zur Stadtentwicklung in Westeuropa. Diese unternimmt den Versuch, langlebige Verhältnisse und deutliche Einschnitte in einer weiten zeitlichen und räumlichen Perspektive zu skizzieren, die von der Verfestigung der neuen städtischen Lebensform im 12. Jahrhundert bis in das 19. Jahrhundert reicht, als sich mit der politischen Neuordnung und der Industrialisierung die Vorstellungen von Stadt, verändern. Zusammengeführt und partiell neu bewertet werden damit sowohl epochenspezifische Befunde der historischen Forschung zur mittelalterlichen und frühneuzeitlichen Stadt wie auch die bisher nur in begrenztem Ausmaß vorliegenden vergleichenden Untersuchungen zu regionalen Unterschieden in Westeuropa sowie Erkenntnisse anderer, an der Städteforschung beteiligter Disziplinen.

In the wake of the so-called digital revolution numerous attempts have been made to rethink and redesign what scholarly publications can or should be. Beyond the Flow examines the technologies as well as narratives driving this unfolding transformation. However, facing challenges such as the serial crisis, knowledge burying or sudoku research the discourses and practices of scholarly publishing today are mainly shaped by confusion, heterogeneity and uncertainty. By critically interrogating the current state of digital publishing in academia the book asks for how a sustainable post-digital publishing ecology can be imagined. [less ▲]

"A contemporary history of Luxembourg in 70 chronicles" by Denis Scuto is a collection of 70 press chronicles, published from 2014 to 2019 in the Luxembourg newspaper Tageblatt. It is "public history" in the best sense of the word, because Denis Scuto as a professional historian intervenes directly in today's debates and enlightens them in a dazzling way by replacing them in the history of Luxembourg and Europe. It is a book aimed directly at the general public, which does not necessarily read scholarly works, but is interested in understanding the country in which it lives and works, with its indissolubly linked past and present. It is therefore a contemporary history because, over the course of the current debates commented by Denis Scuto, the essential elements of the construction of contemporary Luxembourg appear: the birth of the Grand Duchy as a nation-state, its hard learning of independence throughout the nineteenth century, political and social struggles, the consequences of the two world wars, its destiny as a country made of migratory flows, the upheaval of a rural country that became an industrial power and then a European and financial centre, etc. [less ▲]

This book - which features a foreword by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, and a Preface by Professor Harold James (Princeton Unviersity) -examines the European vocation and achievements of Pierre Werner (1913–2002),former Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, unanimously recognized as one of the architects of the Economic and Monetary Union. The author makes extensive use of Pierre Werner’s previously unpublished archives belonging to the Werner family, opened for the first time for research purposes. The book analyses the Werner Report, negotiations within the Werner Committee, the emergence of the Committee’s views on EMU, their political commitment to a European currency, the similarities and differences between their ideas, their personal networks, the influence of the states they represented, their theoretical and methodological input and their contribution to the political consensus. Chapters shed new light on various aspects of the European integration process and also on the role of Luxembourg and its European policy. In addition, the author has carried out a series of original interviews with Luxembourg and European figures who share their memories and thoughts concerning Pierre Werner, his achievements and his views on the European integration process, and also other topics such as the Economic and Monetary Union and Luxembourg‘s European policy. This book will be of interest and value to researchers, EU policy makers and students in the fields of political economy, political science, economic history and history of economic thought.

Bien que le Web ait seulement trente ans, son patrimoine est déjà pléthorique : la fondation Internet Archive a collecté plus de 345 milliards de pages web depuis 1996. Cette fondation, qui fut l’un des pionniers de l’archivage du Web, n’est pas seule à préserver et collecter aujourd’hui ce patrimoine dit « nativement numérique ». Au cours des années 2000, plusieurs pays ont en effet lancé de tels archivages, souvent confiés aux bibliothèques nationales, et cette tendance ne cesse de s’affirmer depuis. Ces initiatives introduisent des ruptures : dans la notion même d’archive, mais aussi dans les pratiques des professionnels des bibliothèques et du patrimoine, tout comme dans celles des chercheurs. Cet ouvrage se propose d’initier le lecteur aux enjeux humains et techniques de l’archivage de la Toile, de la collecte à l’analyse en passant par la création et le partage de corpus ou encore le cadre législatif. Il étudie de manière pragmatique cet archivage, en essayant de rendre palpable à la fois sa fabrique (technique, institutionnelle, juridique), la relation que ses acteurs entretiennent avec les publics et les évolutions qu’ont connues les collectes en une vingtaine d’années. Ce livre s’intéresse également à la manière dont les archives du Web, outre leur rôle patrimonial, peuvent aujourd’hui être exploitées par différents acteurs, notamment à des fins de recherche.

Das Buch vermittelt theoretische Grundlagen und praxisnahe Kenntnisse zu wissenschaftlichen Umfragen. Mit Hilfe dieser Kenntnisse kann der Leser Umfragen sowohl kritisch beurteilen als auch Fragebögen selbst nach den gültigen wissenschaftlichen Standards erstellen. Damit wird dem in den letzten Jahren zunehmenden Problem mangelnder Gültigkeit und Zuverlässigkeit von Befragungsdaten entgegengewirkt. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf Hinweisen zur Formulierung von Fragen und zur Konstruktion von Fragebögen, daneben werden aber auch viele andere Probleme behandelt, wie z.B. Fragen des Forschungsdesigns oder der Planung und Durchführung der Feldarbeit. Neben postalischen, persönlichen und telefonischen Befragungen werden auch Online-, Mobile und Mixed-Mode-Befragungen erläutert. Das Buch schließt die Lücke zwischen allgemeinen Lehrbüchern zur empirischen Sozialforschung einerseits und speziellen Lehr- und Handbüchern zur Datenanalyse andererseits. [less ▲]
