Border research has undergone profound changes in the last few decades, which has changed the study of national borders as unchallenged phenomena. This reorientation is based on constructivist approaches and queries the processes of establishing, relativising, shifting or overcoming borders. It was based on this conception of borders as social constructions that in 2019 Florian Weber (Saarland University), Christian Wille (University of Luxembourg), Beate Caesar (TU Kaiserslautern) and Julian Hollstegge (University of Bayreuth) launched their book project "Geographien der Grenzen" (Geographies of Borders). The anthology, which was published in 2020 discusses the connection between spaces, orders and interdependencies. The authors from the spatial, social sciences and cultural studies choose different approaches to borders and analyze their (re)production processes as “geographies of borders”. By doing so, they also focus on borders other than nation-state borders, such as city-country hybrid differentiations. The volume therefore examines from various theoretical and thematic perspectives the question of how and which “geographies of border” can be (re)constructed in the interplay of various destabilizations and (re)stabilizations of borders.

Das Thema Schreiben ist in allen wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zentral. Forschende unterschiedlicher Diskursgemeinschaften haben Schreibpraxis und Texte untersucht. Dabei haben sich Bezeichnungen, Konzepte und Forschungsansätze parallel entwickelt. Einerseits bereitet diese Parallelität Schwierigkeiten für die Verständigung über das Schreiben, andererseits kann sie als Gewinn gesehen werden, da sich aus ihr diverse methodische und theoretische Zugänge ergeben, die einander ergänzen. Der Sammelband nimmt diese Perspektivenvielfalt in den Blick und profiliert damit die sich entwickelnde Schreibwissenschaft. Ziel ist es, ein gemeinsames Verständnis einer deutschsprachigen Schreibwissenschaft zu entwickeln, das unterschiedliche Fachrichtungen und Ansätze zusammenführt. [less ▲]

This book focuses on the history of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), from its origins in the mid-19th century to nowadays. ITU was the fi rst international organization ever and still plays a crucial role in managing global telecommunications today. Putting together some of the most relevant scholars in the fi eld of transnational communications, the book covers the history of ITU from 1865 to digital times in a truly global perspective, taking into account several technologies like the telegraph, the telephone, cables, wireless, radio, television, satellites, mobile phone, the internet and others. The main goal is to identify the long-term strategies of regulation and the techno-diplomatic manoeuvres taken inside ITU, from convincing the majority of the nations to establish the offi cial seat of the Telegraph Union bureau in Switzerland in the 1860s, to contrasting the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance (supported by US and ICANN). History of the International Telecommunication Union is a trans-disciplinary text and can be interesting for scholars and students in the fi elds of telecommunications, media, international organizations, transnational communication, diplomacy, political economy of communication, STS, and others. It has the ambition to become a reference point in the history of ITU and, at the same time, just the fi rst comprehensive step towards a longer, inter-technological, political and cultural history of transnational communications to be written in the future.

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.

Seit Ende 2016 widmet sich das universitäre Forschungsprojekt VILLUX X in Zusammenarbeit mit der Stadt Luxemburg der Erstellung eines digitalen historischen Atlas. Dieser zeigt die städtische Entwicklung Luxemburgs seit Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts in Form von digitalen und interaktiven Karten. In mehreren Zeitschnitten ab den 1820er Jahren lassen sich die tiefgreifenden Wandlungsprozesse der Stadt und ihr Wachstum interaktiv nachvollziehen: Von der engen Festungsstadt des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts bis zur großflächigen, internationalen Metropole des 21. Jahrhunderts. Die Stadtentwicklung ist für diesen Zeitraum in vielen Bereichen noch immer wenig erforscht. Das überrascht, denn Luxemburg hat im Vergleich zu anderen europäischen Städten in den letzten 200 Jahren besonders tiefgreifende Veränderungsprozesse durchlaufen: Von einer mittelgroßen Festungsstadt der frühen Neuzeit, die sich erst nach 1867 von ihrem einengenden Militärkorsett befreien konnte, bis hin zu einer modernen europäischen Hauptstadt des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts. Dann, in der Nachkriegszeit, wurde die Stadt zu einem der drei Hauptverwaltungssitze der Europäischen Union. Und ab den 1970er Jahren entwickelte sie sich darüber hinaus zu einem internationalen Finanzzentrum. Heute ist Luxemburg zweifellos die wirtschaftlich, politisch und kulturell bedeutendste Stadt der Großregion mit einem ausgeprägten kosmopolitischen Flair. Ziel des Luxatlas-Projekts ist es, die Voraussetzungen und Merkmale dieser Entwicklung sowie die wirtschaftlichen, sozialen und politischen Rahmenbedingungen nachzuzeichnen und zu analysieren. Es sind vor allem raumbezogene Fragstellungen, die dabei in historischer Perspektive mit dem digitalen und interaktiven Stadtatlas in den Blick genommen werden. Der Atlas lässt sich in diesem Sinne definieren als eine Sammlung von Karten, Bildern und erläuternden Texten. Er bündelt und verknüpft relevante Daten von städtischen und nationalen Behörden und Kultureinrichtungen sowie auch von unterschiedlichen Forschungsdisziplinen wie Geschichte und Geographie und stellt diese in überarbeiteter Form den Nutzern zur Verfügung. Luxatlas.lu ermöglicht es, historische Veränderungsprozesse des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts diachron zu dokumentieren und gleichzeitig traditionelle Entwicklungsvorstellungen in Frage stellen. Zugleich etabliert er neue Methoden und Konzepte zur Standardisierung von Online-Karten und wird somit selbst zu einem Instrument zusätzlichen Erkenntnisgewinns für seine Nutzer. [less ▲]

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 ▲]

Gestorben wird immer. Das gilt auch für das Großherzogtum Luxemburg und seine Nachbarregionen. Doch was kommt danach? Wo und wie werden Verstorbene zur letzten Ruhe gebettet? Und handelt es sich dabei tatsächlich um die buchstäbliche »Ewige Ruhe«? Beileibe nicht. Tote gehen auf Reisen oder ziehen um – manchmal gleich mehrfach. Kein Wunder, dass der Tod und das »Danach« nicht nur die Religionen und die Rechtsprechung jahrhundertelang beschäftigten, sondern ebenfalls in Film, Literatur und Bildender Kunst ihren Niederschlag gefunden haben. Dieses Buch versammelt 49 Texte rund um die Themenkomplexe »Grabkunst«, »Der Tod im Bild«, »Der Tod in der Literatur«, »Glaube und Recht« sowie »Tote unterwegs« und gibt einen Überblick über Begräbnisse und Bestattungsgepflogenheiten von der Frühzeit bis heute, auch im Hinblick auf die verschiedenen Glaubensrichtungen und ihre spezifischen Riten.

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 ▲]

Cet ouvrage réunit des chercheurs issus des principaux centres, chaires et réseaux de recherche en études législatives d’Amérique du Nord, d’Europe et du Maghreb. Leurs contributions en anglais et en français visent à comprendre les différentes transformations de la démocratie représentative dans un système concurrentiel des formes démocratiques (participative, délibérative, etc.) et de nouvelles hiérarchisations législatives (l’européanisation, le fédéralisme et le parlementarisme rationalisé). Il s’agit en premier lieu d’analyser les députés et la fabrication contemporaine de la loi, c’est -dire comment ils travaillent dans les commissions, usent de leurs pouvoirs d’interpellation et quels sont leurs rapports aux groupes d’intérêts. Il s’agit en second lieu d’évaluer la nature et les modalités du contrôle parlementaire notamment en s’intéressant aux ressources administratives mises à leurs dispositions et à leurs pouvoirs dans le domaine budgétaire. Il s’agit in fine de comprendre en quoi la composition du corps électoral et la construction de l’opinion politique, le fonctionnement des partis politiques et des groupes parlementaires, le contexte institutionnel fédéral et/ou post-autoritaire déterminent ou non le degré d’autonomie et d’efficacité parlementaire.

Penser l’histoire des médias … le chemin historiographique et académique qu’elle a parcouru, mais aussi son actualité et ses perspectives, telles sont les ambitions relevées par la cinquantaine de contributions de ce livre. Quatre dimensions ont été placées au cœur de cette réflexion collective : les enjeux d’ordre méthodologique et la diversité des démarches mobilisées par les chercheurs qui ont les médias pour objet d’étude ; les singularités des rapports entretenus par l’historien avec ses sources ; le spectre des objets d’étude ; enfin les finalités et l’utilité sociale du savoir produit par l’historien des médias. Ces dimensions se dévoilent au fil des chapitres de synthèse, des études de cas et de récits d’égo-histoire qui se répondent et prolongent le premier Congrès international de la Société pour l’histoire des médias (SPHM), tenu à l’Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines en mai 2016. Au terme de cet ouvrage, le lecteur aura sans doute le sentiment que nous vivons un temps de redéfinition des frontières de l’histoire des médias, fécondée par d’autres approches et disciplines. Il en saisira d’autant mieux les défis en ayant son histoire à l’esprit, en un vaste panorama par médias, mais aussi par notion, thématiques et tendances de la recherche. [less ▲]

The 50th anniversary of the death in 1967 of the famous music teacher, ethnomusicologist and composer Zoltán Kodály reminded us that another renowned music pedagogue, Leo Kestenberg (1882-1962), was born in the same year as Kodály. As such, the joint Kodály Kestenberg Conference provided a welcome opportunity not only to address aspects of music pedagogical and biographical research which had hitherto received a limited amount of attention, but also to highlight a number of key moments in history, and the resulting impact these had had on music pedagogy. The significant level of international interest which music educators showed in the Kodály Kestenberg Conference fulfilled the organisers' desire to create a forum for the free exchange ideas. It also enabled participants to review our commonalities and differences and to look beyond our individual national developments and evaluate the methods and concepts of two significant personalities in the history of musical education in the first half of the 20th century. The sheer diversity of historical and current topics in music education research both inside and outside of Europe, not only reflects the fact that in the 21st century, music education research has established and profiled itself in a wide range of sub-disciplines in addition to revealing new fields of inter-disciplinary research. The effectiveness of reforms initiated and implemented by Kodály and Kestenberg extend to the present day and continue to influence discussions around the future perspectives of music education. This is illustrated by the example of formal and informal learning in the field of elementary music pedagogy. The "Century of the Child" proclaimed in 1900 by the Swedish reform pedagogue Ellen Key (1849–1926) has left its mark on music education through reformers such as Kodály and Kestenberg into the 21st century. This conference book contains articles which are subdivided in five sub-categories: (1) The function of Music Education, (2) The Historical Era of Kodály and Kestenberg, (3) Learning and Instruction, (4) Assessment Technologies in Music Education and (5) Effects of Music Training. The contributors come from six different countries namely, Austria, England, Germany, Hungary, Israel and Luxembourg. The editors would like to record their thanks to both: (1) the Pedagogical Faculty of the John von Neumann University, Kecskemét and the dean Dr. Fülöp Tamás and the vice-dean Dr. Sági Norberta for hosting the conference, (2) the International Leo Kestenberg Society. The editors also acknowledge that this research is supported by EFOP-3.6.1- 16-2016-00006 “The development and enhancement of the research potential at John von Neumann University” project. The Project is supported by the Hungarian Government and co-financed by the European Social Fund.

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.

Time is a crucial dimension in the application of any law. In tax law, however, where an environment characterized by rapid change on the national, European, and international levels complicates the provision of accurate legal advice, timing is particularly sensitive. This book is the first to analyse the relationship between time and three key areas of tax: treaties, EU law, and constitutional law issues, such as legal certainty and individual rights. The issues arising from the interplay of these various areas are analysed from a both academic and practical angle, providing important insights independent of the concrete national framework within which tax rules are applied.

Par la loi du 27 juin 2018, le législateur luxembourgeois a finalement procédé à la réforme du divorce attendue de longue date. Il a ce faisant opéré une importante modification de l’organisation judiciaire par la création d’un juge aux affaires familiales. En outre, il a enfin tiré les conséquences des décisions de la Cour constitutionnelle en matière d’autorité parentale et adopté de nouvelles dispositions en la matière. Le 18 octobre 2018, deux semaines avant l’entrée en vigueur de la loi, David Hiez et Françoise Hilger, respectivement Professeur à l’Université du Luxembourg et magistrate chargée de cours en droit de la famille à la même Université, ont organisé, avec le soutien de l’Université du Luxembourg, un colloque pour analyser la réforme et orienter les praticiens. Cet ouvrage rassemble les communications de cette journée. Rédigés par les plus grands spécialistes du droit civil luxembourgeois, issus tant du monde académique que de la pratique, les auteurs fournissent dans ce volume une analyse en profondeur des dispositions principales de la réforme. Mêlant analyses théoriques, mises en perspective historiques et conseils pratiques, cet ouvrage rendra service à la fois aux praticiens amenés à mettre en oeuvre les nouveaux textes tout comme aux chercheurs ou aux citoyens désireux de mieux comprendre les enjeux et apprécier les futures évolutions.

We describe the state of the Talmudic Logic project as of end of 2019. The Talmud is the most comprehensive and fundamental work of Jewish religious law, employing a large number of logical components centuries ahead of their time. In many cases the basic principles are not explicitly formulated, which makes it difficult to formalize and make available to the modern student of Logic. This project on Talmudic Logic, aims to present logical analysis of Talmudic reasoning using modern logical tools. We investigate principles of Talmudic Logic and publish a series of books, one book or more for each principle. http://www.collegepublications.co.uk/stl/ The series begins with the systematic analysis of Talmudic inference rules. The first book shows that we can present Talmudic reasoning intuitions as a systematic logical system basic to modern non-deductive reasoning, such as Argumentum A Fortiori, Abduction and Analogy. The second book offers a systematic common sense method for intuitively defining sets and claims that this method adequately models the Talmudic use of the rules Klal uPrat. These books also criticize modern Talmudic research methodology. Later books deal with additional topics like Deontic logic, and Temporal logic, Agency and processes in the Talmud and more. The aims of the project are two fold: 1. To import into the Talmudic study modern logical methods with a view to help understand complicated Talmudic passages, which otherwise cannot be addressed. 2. To export from the Talmud new logical principles which are innovative and useful to modern contemporary logic. [less ▲]

Computerized machines can be found in many forms and all around us - in our pockets, and even sometimes in our body. For many of us, they are now essential elements of everyday life. When it comes to smartphones, connected objects, medical digital devices and e-health, these digital tools have proliferated in our environment, continually transforming our modes of social organization. They act as prostheses and orthotics that "enhance" our cognitive capacities and influence our inherent behaviors. Are digital tools that perpetually envelop the body and the spirit able to overwhelm the social order? Could our cognitive prosthetics lead to permanent, radical change to our society, which could become similar to a hive? This book explores this reflection, which is at the center of social research on digital tools. [less ▲]

Since the early years of telegraphy, modernity at large generated and has depended upon technologies of electrical/electronic communication and information circulation: from telephone, radio, and television to the internet. This volume reveals these connecting technologies’ geopolitical importance and their crucial relationships with culture, commerce, and communities. Also the authors critically examine their spatial dimensions and transnational implications – as material objects with particular qualities, as elements in institutional complexes, and as ‘vehicles’ carrying complex symbolic meanings. Through in-depth assessments of critical, as well as mundane, events in the history of communications and information, these analyses will significantly alter conventional perspectives both on communications and on modern European history.

Fabricating Modern Societies: Education, Bodies, and Minds in the Age of Steel, edited by Karin Priem and Frederik Herman, offers new interdisciplinary and transnational perspectives on the history of industrialization and societal transformation in early-twentieth-century Luxembourg. The individual chapters focus on how industrialists addressed a large array of challenges related to industrialization, borrowing and mixing ideas originating in domains such as corporate identity formation, mediatization, scientification, technological innovation, mechanization, capitalism, mass production, medicalization, educationalization, artistic production, and social utopia, while competing with other interest groups who pursued their own goals. The book looks at different focus areas of modernity, and analyzes how humans created, mediated, and interacted with the technospheres of modern societies. [less ▲]

Sixteen scholars from across the globe come together in Charles Dickens as an Agent of Change to show how Dickens was (and still is) the consummate change agent. His works, bursting with restless energy in the Inimitable's protean style, registered and commented on the ongoing changes in the Victorian world while the Victorians' fictional and factional worlds kept (and keep) changing. The essays from notable Dickens scholars—Malcolm Andrews, Matthias Bauer, Joel J. Brattin, Doris Feldmann, Herbert Foltinek, Robert Heaman, Michael Hollington, Bert Hornback, Norbert Lennartz, Chris Louttit, Jerome Meckier, Nancy Aycock Metz, David Paroissien, Christopher Pittard, and Robert Tracy—suggest the many ways in which the notion of change has found entry into and is negotiated in Dickens' works through four aspects: social change, political and ideological change, literary change, and cultural change. An afterword by the late Edgar Rosenberg adds a personal account of how Dickens changed the life of one eminent Dickensian. [less ▲]

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the individual liability of senior managers has been rediscovered as an important element in effectively countering economic and financial crime. Mainstream enforcement practices against white-collar crime in recent years, focusing mostly on the legal entity or the low- and mid-level employees, have been largely unsuccessful. The punishment of large corporations for economic offences has indeed been confronted with the “too big to jail” dilemma, and with concerns for the negative spillovers that their collapse may entail for employees, shareholders and consumers. The individual “rogue employee”, on the other hand, may be fungible and easily sacrificed as a scapegoat. The recent debate has therefore brought back to centre-stage the individual liability of senior managers, which is essential to close any “responsibility gap”. But are the ordinary rules of criminal law fit and adequate to hold senior managers accountable? This volume, presenting the findings of a study led by the University of Luxembourg and co-financed by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), aims to contribute to this debate with a special focus on the liability of senior managers for the commission of offences against the financial interests of the EU. It compares the criminal liability regimes for senior managers in five Member States (Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands and Poland) and delivers a set of policy recommendations for establishing the liability of senior managers in compliance with the general principles of criminal law and respect for fundamental rights.

Krieg, Krisen und Umbrüche, aber auch Fortschrittsglaube, Hoffnungen und Kontinuitäten kennzeichnen Europa im Zeitalter der Weltkriege. In der deutsch-belgischen Grenzregion führen Grenzverschiebungen zu Orientierungslosigkeit, aber auch Beharrung. Eupen-Malmedy ist zu jener Zeit Randregion zwischen zwei Vaterländern, die in ihm keinen Zwischenraum erkennen wollen. Identitätskonflikte polarisieren und radikalisieren die politische Auseinandersetzung. Krieg wird erlebbar. Gleichzeitig verändern Massenmedien wie Zeitungen, Radio oder das Kino die Sicht der Menschen auf die Welt. Neue Maschinen und Werkstoffe, Traktoren und Lkw erhöhen die Produktivität und Mobilität der Welt. Telefon und Wanderbewegungen sind äußere Zeichen einer Moderne, die in der kleinen Grenzregion Eupen-Malmedy gleichzeitig so nah und so fern sein kann. Auch aus dem Blickwinkel des situativen Opportunismus, der den Einzelnen je nach Lebenssituation zwischen Anpassung oder Verweigerung schwanken lässt, zeichnen die 19 Autoren ein anderes Bild dieser bewegten Zeit nach, die für das Verständnis des heutigen Ostbelgiens grundlegend ist.

This book rereads seven pivotal 20th century jurisprudential and political philosophical positions represented in the work of Herbert Hart, Ronald Dworkin, Duncan Kennedy, John Rawls, Rudolf Smend, Hans Kelsen and Carl Schmitt from the perspective of a concept of liberal democracy that pivots on a stable distinction between the symbolic and real realms of politics envisaged by Claude Lefort. It also articulates this founding distinction of liberal democracy in terms of the instruction to stabilise the relation between potentiality and actuality that can be drawn from the work of Giorgio Agamben, and from Ernst-Wolfgang Böckenförde’s seminal dictum that liberal democracy lives from principles it cannot guarantee. The book assesses the seven jurisprudential and philosophical positions of Hart, Dworkin, Kennedy, Rawls, Smend, Kelsen and Schmitt with regard to their capacity to sustain Lefort’s and Agamben’s respective distinctions between the symbolic and the real, and between potentiality and actuality. It scrutinises the extent to which they heed the instruction that liberal democracy must refrain from realising its founding principles. For purpose of doing so, it also portrays these seven jurisprudential/philosophical endeavours as twentieth century responses to a long history of political theoretical and political institutional endeavours that commenced in fifth century Athens, marked the transition from the republican to imperial Rome, fuelled the conflicts between secular and clerical power during the Middle Ages, and persisted to burden the attempts of the French Revolutionaries to stabilize the unity of the “People” in the years after the revolution.

Ubi servi erant? – Wo waren die Sklaven in der Antike? Die Antwort scheint auf der Hand zu liegen: Überall. Man findet Sklaven in den privaten Haushalten, in Handel, Handwerk und Verwaltung, im Kaiserhaus, in den Städten etc. Inschriften, Papyri, literarische und archäologische Zeugnisse sowie die Rechtsquellen belegen die weite Verbreitung der Sklaverei, so dass man für die griechische und römische Antike mit Fug und Recht von Sklavenhaltergesellschaften sprechen kann. Wie aber sahen die Sklaven aus? Hatten sie die Möglichkeit, Bilder von sich selbst zu überliefern? Wie haben die Herren sie wahrgenommen? Welche Funktion erfüllten die Bilder der Sklaven? Die Beiträge in diesem Band decken ein breites geographisches, chronologisches und thematisches Spektrum ab. Auf diesem Fundament und durch die kombinierte Auswertung einer Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Quellen gelingt es, die Ikonographie der Sklaven besser zu erfassen. [less ▲]

We live in a world of “fake news”, data breaches, election hacking, and cyberwarfare. We live in a world in which 280 characters can change everything. Our analog past has been replaced with digital realities. The world itself is being reprogrammed. This statement might seem like a quippy metaphor, but it actually reveals something much more concrete. The central claim of this book is that digital technologies are rewiring the way that society understands and thinks about global order as Cyberspace changes the content of international borders. Understanding these developments is critical to understanding the future of global society. [less ▲]

"Droit luxembourgeois et européen de l'asile" est un ouvrage collectif consacré à l'étude du droit de la protection internationale au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg. Fondé sur une analyse thématique de la légilsation pertinente, cet ouvrage apporte un éclairage critique des différentes étapes d'une demande de protection internatinale, de son dépôt par le candidat à l'asile à l'adoption d'une décision finale par le ministre compétent. Il est ainsi question d'aborder aussi bien les démarches antérieures et ultérieures à la décision ministérielle d'octroi ou de refus de la protection internationale comme celles relatives à l'accès aux conditions matérielles d'accueil, le droit à l'assistance judiciaire, la détermination de l'âge des jeunes candidats à l'asile, l'accès au marché du travail, les modalités liées au regroupement familial et le sort des déboutés. Le contentieux de la protection internationale fait également l'objet d'analyses approfondies. Cette étude est ainsi l'occasion de mettre en évidence l'évolution et les tensions rencontrées aussi bien dans la jurisprudence administrative luxembourgeoise que dans la jurisprudence européenne (CJUE) et internationale (CourEDH). La diversité des auteurs de cet ouvrage collectif (avocats, magistrats, chercheurs, administrations, ONG, psychologues) apporte une expertise interdisciplinaire permettant de mieux appréhender et questionner le droit de l'asile. Digiré par des chercheurs issus de la Faculté de Droit, d'Économie et de Finance de l'Université du Luxembourg, cet ouvrage collectif se révèlera un outil indispensable aussi bien pour les chercheurs, les praticiens du droit que pour les étudiants.

Comment justifier de faire produire effet aux jugements rendus par des tribunaux étrangers? La question est ancienne dans le monde de common law. Tant l’Angleterre que les Etats-Unis ont développé des théories originales fondant l’accueil des jugements étrangers et dessinant une partie du régime de cet accueil. Dans la tradition juridique continentale, la question du fondement de l’effet des jugements étrangers n’a en revanche guère été approfondie. Elle devrait pourtant être essentielle, en permettant soit d’expliquer les solutions retenues par le droit positif, soit de les rationaliser. Ce cours présente et critique les différentes théories et fondements existant en droit comparé. Certaines mettent en avant les intérêts privés des justiciables, à l’instar du droit à l’exécution des jugements promu par la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme. D’autres privilégient les intérêts des Etats, qu’ils soient purement économiques ou plus politiques. Enfin, le cours s’interroge sur le fondement de la circulation des jugements dans les systèmes fédéraux, en insistant plus particulièrement sur le principe de confiance mutuelle prévalant dans l’Union européenne.

The socio-discursive landscape surrounding the migration debate is characterised by a growing sense of crisis in both personal and collective identities. From this viewpoint, discourses about immigration are also always attempts at reconstructing the threatened ‘home identity’ of the respective host society. It is such attempts at reasserting identity-in-crisis (due to migration) that are the focus of the volume Migration and Media: Discourses about identities in crisis. This four-part book explores the representational strategies used to frame current migration debates as crises of identity, collective and individual. It features fourteen case-studies of varying sets of data including print media texts, TV broadcasts, online forums, politicians’ speeches, legal and administrative texts, and oral narratives, drawn from discourses in a range of languages – Croatian, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, and Ukrainian – , and it employs different discourse-analytical methods, such as Argumentation and Metaphor Analysis, Gendered Language Studies, Corpus-assisted Semantics and Pragmatics, and Proximization Theory. Such a diverse range of sources, languages, and approaches provides innovative methodological and theoretical analysis on migration and identity which will be of interest to scholars, students, and policy makers working in the fields of migration studies, media studies, identity studies, and social and public policy.

This volume contains the papers presented at the 42nd German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI 2019), held during September 23–26, 2019, in Kassel, Germany. The German conference on Artificial Intelligence (abbreviated KI for “Künstliche Intelligenz”) has developed from a series of inofficial meetings and workshops, organized by the German “Gesellschaft für Informatik” (association for computer science, GI), into an annual conference series dedicated to research on theory and applications of intelligent system technology. While KI is primarily attended by researchers from Germany and neighboring countries, it warmly welcomes international participation. The KI 2019 conference took place in Kassel, Germany, September 23–26, 2019, and it was held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Conference of the German Computer Science Association (INFORMATIK 2019). Information about the event can be found at www.ki2019.de and informatik2019.de, respectively. KI 2019 had a special focus theme on “AI methods for Argumentation” and we especially invited contributions that use methods from all areas of AI to understand, formalize, or generate argument structures in natural language. The special focus theme was organized in cooperation with the DFG funded priority program “RATIO: Robust Argumentation Machines”. Besides this special focus theme, the conference invited original research papers and shorter technical communications on all topics of AI. Further, we asked for the submission of extended abstracts summarizing papers that had recently been presented at major AI conferences. KI 2019 received 82 submissions, with authors from 25 countries. Submissions were – except for some special cases – reviewed by three Program Committee members. The Program Committee, comprised of 51 experts from 9 countries, decided to accept 29 papers. Out of these, 16 submissions were accepted as full papers, 10 as short papers and 3 as extended abstracts. The program also included three invited talks: – Jürgen Altmann (University of Dortmund): Autonomous Weapon Systems – Dangers and Need for an International Prohibition – Michael Beetz (University of Bremen): Digital Twin Knowledge Bases – Knowledge Representation and Reasoning for Robotic Agent – Antony Hunter (University College London): Towards Computational Persuasion for Behaviour Change Applications Two of these presentations are summarized in papers contained in this volume. Overall, it was a pleasure to organize KI 2019 and we are grateful to our co-organizers, Alexander Steen (Workshops and Tutorials Chair) and Kristina Yordanova (Doctoral Consortium Chair), who provided valuable additional support in organizing the event. We thank the Program Committee members and all additional reviewers for the effort and time they invested in the reviewing process. Further, we thank the Organizing Committee of INFORMATIK 2019 who took care of finances and local organization and allowed us to focus on the scientific aspects of the conference. Our appreciation also goes to the developers of EasyChair, which provides great functionalities that helped to organize the reviewing process and to create this volume. Last but not least, we would like to thank SAP SE for generously sponsoring travel grants for students to attend KI 2019. July 2019 Christoph Benzmüller Heiner Stuckenschmidt [less ▲]

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 ▲]

Inclusive Physical Education Around the World is the first book to survey inclusive physical education worldwide, to examine the history of inclusive physical education across different regions, and to compare their policy, practice and educational cultures. Featuring the work of leading researchers from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, North America and South America, the book provides a unique interdisciplinary contribution to the fields of physical education, history and pedagogy. It provides readers with information on the origins and historical development of inclusion in schools and teaches them about different ways that inclusive physical education has grown and is implemented in different countries. This is essential reading for anybody with an interest in physical education, disability sport, adapted physical activity, special educational needs (SEN) teaching or social justice in education. It is a vital resource for postgraduates, researchers and academics who are interested in studies on inclusion and heterogeneity, as well as sport and cultural historians, physical education teachers and students.

The role of political considerations in private international law In a traditional (and idealized) view of private international law, its rules are clearly separated from political considerations: they are essentially based on considerations of proximity and of foreseeability of the applicable law and of the competent courts. However, this conception has never corresponded perfectly to reality. Political considerations, as opposed to technical considerations, have their importance in private international law, in a dual form: the defence of public (or political) interests in a narrow sense, but also the definition by the legislatures and by the courts of policies which directly influence the solutions adopted by the rules of private international law. This is what the course tries to show, through explanations on the political implications of the major methodological choices of private international law; on the reflection in private international law of major political choices within a democratic or non-democratic society; and externalities such as foreign public law, the federal or supranational integration of States and, finally, the foreign relations of the forum State with third States.

Der vorliegende Band versteht sich als Beitrag zu den internationalen Modernismus-Studien. Zum ersten Mal werden Spannungen, Interaktionen und Friktionen in der kulturellen Welt sowie die Koexistenz von Tradition und Innovation im Luxemburger Kontext in einem interdisziplinären Sammelband mit einander in Verbindung gebracht. Die Beiträge thematisieren Gleichzeitigkeiten und Interaktionen zwischen den verschiedenen Kunstfeldern Architektur, Kunst und Literatur auf. Mit Beiträgen in vier Sprachen, Luxemburgisch, Deutsch, Französisch und Englisch, spiegelt der Band die mehrsprachige Realität des Luxemburger Forschungskontextes wieder und richtet sich sowohl an ein Luxemburger als auch an ein internationales Publikum. Diskussionen zur Natur der Moderne in spezifischen Kontexten bewegen sich häufig innerhalb der Dualität ›modern vs. traditionell‹, wobei die Tradition oft mit Rückständigkeit assoziiert wird. Werke, die in einem Kontext als innovativ und schrankenbrechend gelten, werden in anderen Zusammenhängen als verstaubt und epigonal angesehen. Wenn wir die Relevanz und Qualität der Luxemburger Literatur und Kunst vorrangig anhand ihrer Korrespondenzen zu ausländischen Meisterwerken messen, so laufen wir notwendigerweise das Risiko sie zu unterschätzen und misszuverstehen. Anliegen dieses Bandes ist deshalb radikal innovative Werke des Luxemburger Kontextes sichtbar zu machen, sowie auch Traditionen als Formen der Innovation zu verstehen. Einige der Fragen, die die Beiträger dieses Bandes aufwerfen: wann geschieht die Moderne in Luxemburg? Wie, und in Beziehung wozu, wird sie definiert? Wer definiert sie, mit welchem Anliegen und in welchem Kontext? Die Beiträger bezeugen verschiedene Herangehensweisen an die Thematik: die Artikel reichen von longue durée Studien, zu close readings von Stil, Themen und Formen, zu Untersuchungen des formativen Einflusses kultureller Faktoren.
