Bildung für sozialen Fortschritt: Wie wirkt sich ein Mehr an Bildung auf eine Gesellschaft aus? Dieser Frage widmete sich eine Tagung am Institut für Höhere Studien in Wien. In den vergangenen Jahrzenten ist der Bildungsstand weltweit gestiegen und geht mit einem längeren, gesünderen Leben, einer höheren Produktivität und mehr zivilgesellschaftlichem Engagement einher. Gleichzeitig kann Bildung die soziale Ungleichheit verschärfen. Gestaltung: Julia Geistberger Mit: Justin Powell, Bildungssoziologe Universität Luxemburg Redaktion: Barbara Daser [less ▲]

Against the backdrop of the recent multidimensional crisis, significant changes have been introduced to the legal and political frameworks in which the EU and its Member States design, implement, monitor and evaluate policies and practices. Both the nature and the content of the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) raise issues regarding effective enforcement of EU law and policy in the post-crisis context. From this perspective, this contribution addresses the main challenges facing the EPRS and explores possible ways forward. [less ▲]

The challenge that we have taken up as a multidisciplinary group of scholars interested in strengthening the position of interview data in the Digital Humanities realm, is to encourage scholars to use technology to handle their interview data, and to engage with practices of fellow scholars in adjacent disciplines. Coming from distinctive disciplines such as oral history, ethnography, sociology, media studies, speech technology, computational linguistics, socio-linguistics, phonetics, human media interaction, information - and computer science, we all have a different interest in human expression, the modalities in which it is conveyed - written text, speech, gestures, sounds - and the ways in which it can be structured in order to be studied. Technology is now able to facilitate processes that used to be cumbersome, such as transcription and its alignment with audio, but it also offers ways of venturing into other disciplines or teaming up with a scholar from a different discipline to compare each others analytical approaches and results.

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.

Studying twelve countries over 30 years, we examine whether women’s educational expansion has translated into a closing gender earnings gap. As educational attainment is cohort-dependent, an Age-Period-Cohort analysis is most appropriate in our view. Using the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) data, we show that while in terms of attainment of tertiary education women have caught up and often even outperform men, substantial gender differences in earnings persist in all countries. These results are consistent with the composition of the top earnings decile. Using Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition methods, we demonstrate that the role of education in explaining the gender earnings gap has been limited and even decreased over cohorts. Contrary, employment status as well as occupation explain a more substantial part in all countries. We conclude that earnings differences at levels far from gender equality likely also persist in the future, even if the “rise of women” in terms of education continues. [less ▲]

As international tax reform aims to ensure "taxation where value is created", it is crucial to ask questions about the relationship between taxation and value creation, in particular with respect to increased digitalisation. As the notions of value creation and substance are inextricably linked to a functional analysis of business activity, further the challenges arising from artificial intelligence taking independent decisional control over key business functions will also need to be considered. This brief note outlines some of the existing developments in the relationship between these factors.

Avec une coopération initiée dans les années 1970, la Grande Région est considérée comme l’un des espaces transfrontaliers les plus emblématiques au sein de l’Union européenne. L’aménagement du territoire constitue un élément essentiel de ses thématiques de coopération. Cependant, l'importance grandissante de ce champ d'action demeure relativement peu documentée d'un point de vue transfrontalier. Cette thématique reste principalement abordée sous l’angle réglementaire et institutionnel. Le présent policy paper postule qu’au-delà des règlementations, des plans et des schémas, l’aménagement du territoire transfrontalier résulte également d’une pratique visant à anticiper l’organisation d’une société dans un espace donné. Après une présentation sommaire des grandes étapes de la coopération dans le domaine de l’aménagement du territoire transfrontalier au sein de la Grande Région, le présent policy paper présente les résultats d’un exercice de recherche expérimentale réalisé en 2017, essentiellement sous la forme d’un jeu de simulation (« Planspiel »). Les principales conclusions analytiques de cet échange sont ensuite mises en lumière. Pour conclure, le document dresse une liste de recommandations basées sur l’analyse des résultats des travaux de recherche. [less ▲]

Als 1917 die Revolution Frauen den Männern gleichstellt, ist die Sowjetunion das fortschrittlichste Land der Welt: Frauen dürfen wählen, studieren und in die Politik gehen. Allen voran Nadeschda Krupskaja, die Ehefrau und Kampfgefährtin von Revolutionsführer Lenin. Mit seinem Nachfolger Stalin jedoch verschwinden die Frauen im Kreml wieder von der Bildfläche. Der Diktator entmachtet Krupskaja, seine Ehefrau Nadeschda Allilujewa darf nicht mehr öffentlich auftreten. Sie vereinsamt und nimmt sich 1932 das Leben. Den anderen Kremlfrauen verordnet Stalin ein traditionelles Lebensmodell, das bis heute gilt. Während damals gewöhnliche Russinnen zur Arbeit gehen mussten, bleiben sie meist unfreiwillig zuhause. So ergeht es auch Nina Petrowna, der Lebensgefährtin von Nikita Chruschtschow, und der Ehefrau von Leonid Breschnew, Viktoria Breschnewa. Beide geben zugunsten der Karriere ihrer Männer den Beruf auf und ebnen damit ihren Männern den Weg an die Spitze des Staates. Dies ändert sich erst gegen Ende der Sowjetunion. Trotz politischer Umwälzungen wird auch von Raissa Gorbatschowa, der Ehefrau von Michail Gorbatschow erwartet, dass sie sich zurückhält und gehorcht. Doch sie lehnt sich auf und handelt eigenständig. Am Ende zerbricht die Frau des großen Reformers, Raissa Gorbatschowa, am starren Kremlapparat. Nur einer gelingt es, sich aus dem Bann der Macht zu befreien: Ljudmila Putina. [less ▲]

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Edgar Wingert, a 39-year-old-year material specialist, had always wanted a career in the German military. But when, after nearly a year in the service, his relatively poor eyesight forced him to abandon his dream career, he went to work as an untrained worker in the local paper mill. After the financial crisis hit and he was laid off, Wingert thought for the first time about doing his "Ausbildung," the German name for the professional training approach that involves both theoretical learning and on-the-job training – an apprenticeship. Passing both would get him his journeyman's letter, the technical qualification that allows millions of Germans without a university degree to do challenging and rewarding work, earn a good income and know that they can easily find new work, if they are laid off or otherwise want to leave their employers. "By the time I started thinking about doing an apprenticeship, I was 30 and it was too late," he says, taking a break from cleaning the laser printing nozzle used to inscribe the name of the German manufacturer Knipex onto the insulating grip on hundreds of pliers stacked neatly in boxes by his side. Germany, which is currently enjoying its lowest unemployment rate in 37 years, is well known for a system of standardized, superior training qualifications, which allow primarily young people to train and get recognized for specific jobs. In Germany, everything from selling cars to building pianos and harpsichords has its own practical technical schooling, testing and qualifications. It is a system that experts say allows a highly capable workforce to earn middle-class wages, enjoy job security and bring a high level of expertise to jobs that increasingly rely on more than just muscle, nimble fingers and endurance. "The key to the success of the German model is interlocking of practical training and theoretical learning," says professor Justin J.W. Powell at the University of Luxembourg, who has studied apprenticeship systems both in German and the United States. Worker training will surely be discussed at the July 7-8 summit of Group of 20 leading rich and developing nations, which will be held in the northern German port city of Hamburg. Much of the media attention will focus on Trump's meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, and on climate change, where the American leader has departed from allies by announcing his country's withdrawal from the Paris climate accords. But economic issues such as trade remain the heart of the G20's work, and worker training is a major issue for wealthy nations, whose aging populations continue to grapple with rapidly changing economic currents. Training is a hot topic in many countries. In the United States, for example, debate is intensifying over how best to create jobs for adults lacking a four-year college degree. Despite U.S. President Donald Trump's criticism of Germany and its trade practices, he announced a boosting of the apprenticeship programs that many experts say is an attempt to emulate Germany's success in closing the so-called skills gap – the gulf between companies' need for a high-trained workforce and the job seekers who are not adequately trained for the jobs on offer. "For decades, Germany has been a model for highly successful apprenticeship – that's a name I like, apprentice – apprenticeship programs," Trump reportedly said during a roundtable discussion with the chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel. Wingert's big chance to do a formal apprenticeship came in 2012, when Knipex, the company he still works for, offered him and some of his colleagues the chance to get trained. He would be excused from the factory floor for a week each month to pursue a yearlong course that, after a series of two written tests and one practical test, would earn him the official title of machine and systems operator. That professional qualification allows him to apply to higher-paying jobs in the factory, but also lets him more easily enter other manufacturing businesses at a higher pay. The cost of the tuition at the trade college and the 12 weeks of missed work are payed by the federal employment office under a program designed to train older adults. In 2015 the program helped train more than 24,000 people in Germany all over at a cost of roughly 180 million euros, or about $206 million. "You should see what it means for people to get the letter of acceptance," says Sandra Urspruch, a member of the company's human resources department. "It's like getting the golden ticket." At Knipex less than 40 percent of those working on the factory floor have professional qualifications. The balance, who are untrained, execute relatively straightforward tasks on pre-set machines and pre-determined routines; they are more likely to be let go if orders decrease. A fairly typical story of German prowess in small and mid-sized manufacturing companies, Knipex was founded in the second half of the 19th century, well after the industrial revolution had reached the German Ruhr-area, still the heartland of the biggest manufacturing economy in Europe. The Knipex factory, a sprawling series of buildings and halls that now employs about 800 workers who make about 45,000 pliers a day, stands on the site of the original factory, where the founder, who was the current director's great grandfather, was making about 120 pliers a day. Despite its history, the plier factory is aggressively modern. Robots now handle some of the heavy industrial forges. Most of the factory halls are lit with natural light. Small glass-enclosed cabinets ensure that smokers do not affect the indoor-air quality. One section of one floor – where the tools are neatly sorted and the machines look especially modern – is dedicated entirely to training the young who will spend up to three years getting professional qualifications. Knipex was also fairly forward-thinking in starting the program that allows older adults, like Wingert, to go through professional training. While the company itself does not carry any of the cost, it does have to reorganize schedules and in some cases hire extra workers to fill-in for the time Wingert and his peers miss on the factory floor. Besides, now trained and certified, nothing stops them from going up the road to look for better employment opportunities. For the company such inconvenience is paid off by the loyalty it brings, explains Urspruch. Besides, at a time when many workers are retiring and when the jobs become technically more complex, the measure guarantees the manufacturer a steady supply of well-trained employees. For the government-run national employment agency, footing the bill is a way to make sure unemployment numbers stay low. "Employees without a professional qualification or diploma are usually more vulnerable to unemployment, or in cases where they don't have jobs, have a harder time finding employment," says Paul Ebsen, a spokesperson for the German national employment agency. "That's why the employment agency puts so much stake in professional qualifications." Johann Fortwengel, who has extensively studied German firms who come to America looking for locally trained professional manufacturing technicians to hire – or failing that try to help develop an apprentice system to help train workers – says many Americans don't understand the German concept of apprenticeships. For one, many Americans don't realize that the vast majority of Germans who enter into the system are under 20. "In the States, most people who enter apprenticeships seem to be in the 20s, or even early 30s," says Fortwengel, a lecturer in International Management at Kings College in London. There's also a stigma attached to apprenticeship and technical colleges that is less pronounced in Germany, adds Fortwengel. "Everyone wants to do a bachelor's degree," he says of American culture. But according to experts, the core difference between Germany and the U.S. is how many people and businesses rely on the national apprenticeship system. In the U.S., where the Department of Labor promotes "ApprenticeshipUSA," many – if not most – manufacturing companies still tend to train and evaluate workers themselves, a practice that can leave workers with the kind of narrow training that makes changing jobs difficult. "The German system is so special because it is so standardized," says Fortwengel. According to the University of Luxembourg's Powell, the German system also differs from the American one because of the stakeholders involved: "What makes the system so unique is corporatism; the tripartite of unions, government and companies." Such a structure is one of the reasons that Fortwengel doesn't believe the German system can be easily transplanted into America. "Even in a hundred years, it won't be like the German system," he says. More likely, it will be a training system with a distinctly American flavor." [less ▲]
