Alors que la nature a toujours eu bonne presse dans les livres pour enfants et pour adolescents, une préoccupation, voire un sentiment d’urgence, s’immisce, dès la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, dans les écrits et les images représentant animaux, végétaux et environnements à destination des jeunes lecteurs. Loin de simplifier la pensée écologique, des auteurs rendent sensible la complexité de l’interaction entre l’humain et la nature en créant des images, en inventant des histoires et en réinventant les formes pour les raconter. Qu’apporte cette littérature à la jeunesse ? N’est-elle là que pour transmettre le fameux message « écolo » de l’adulte à ceux qui grandissent ? [less ▲]

Reparieren und Instandhalten sind ökonomisch wie kulturell zentrale Praktiken im »Leben« technischer Dinge und Infrastrukturen. Der Band rückt diese bislang wenig untersuchten Tätigkeiten in den Vordergrund und fragt nach den Wissensformen der unterschiedlichen Kulturen des Reparierens. Die Expertisen und politischen Ambitionen menschlicher Akteure finden dabei ebenso Berücksichtigung wie die Eigendynamik der Dinge. Die Beiträge untersuchen Praktiken wie die Uhr- oder Computerreparatur sowie Räume wie die Wohnung und das Krankenhaus, das Repair Café und die Stadt des Globalen Südens. Nicht zuletzt geht es um die Frage, inwiefern Reparieren und reparaturfreundliches Design zu mehr Nachhaltigkeit beitragen können. [less ▲]

The present volume deals with the experience of ambivalence in family relations - a well-known phenomenon that has inspired more and more research and theorizing in the last years but that is however sometimes difficult to capture. Bringing together junior and senior researchers from different parts of the world, ideas on theory and research are elaborated following qualitative and quantitative approaches. This book thus contributes to theory-building as well as outlining research results and helping to develop measurement in interpersonal and intergenerational relations. [less ▲]

In wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) domain, the decision support tools are nowadays necessary in order to efficiently process the large databases generated with on-line sensors. In this paper a cooperative decision support system (DSS) is presented. This DSS uses a KPI-based fuzzy logic engine to analyse the plant performance and identify the operational conditions that occur in the plants. Then, it associates the detected operational conditions with YouTube pages in which videos are uploaded to provide details and propose suggestions. The YouTube platform is then used to share and validate suggestions by means of the comment functions and the 'likes'. This approach is innovative, free of costs, and useful for plant managers that can rely on a user-friendly platform. [less ▲]

Care for elderly persons has many facets and is influenced by many factors of the care-dependent person, the care giver(s) and the micro-, and macro-social context. A co-operation of multiple disciplines is required to better understand phenomena of elder care and to act adequately in this field. This is even more urgent given the increasing population aging and the impending gaps between demand and supply of care. The present book provides a first substantive integration of knowledge from geropsychology, other gerosciences, and cultural psychologies to reach these goals —through a multi-disciplinary and international cast of authors. Macro-social context—including demographic, historical, political, normative, and other cultural factors—turned out to open and limit the available options for individual care giving and receipt and shapes how these issues are experienced by the participants in elder care. Elder care is shown to be far more complex than previously thought, because its consequences extend beyond single care givers to multigenerational caring families. Thinking, feeling and acting in relation to care dependency, caregiving and care receipt emerged as being influenced by multiple individual and social level factors. Future issues of elder care are seen as being shaped to a large extent by macro level factors such as population aging, social trends in job and family life, and development of assistive technologies. All this has far reaching implications for ensuring quality of care and the life quality on part of care recipients and care providers and for the coherence of social communities. [less ▲]

This book examines contemporary educational research and its governance, addressing key questions via a multidisciplinary theoretical framework of comparative institutional analysis with original data and applying multiple methods. The authors explore and explain important changes in the governance of educational research and the contents of scholarship in education and related disciplines across Europe since the 1990s. This volume synthesizes findings from a multi-year comparative research project, including in-depth empirical case studies of three distinct educational research cultures evolving in Germany, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The authors reconstruct and compare changing conceptualizations of educational research, embedded in increasingly internationalized contexts of research, and examine shifts in its governance, including patterns of funding, publication, and evaluation. They examine the producers of European educational research and the distinct role of the European Union in constructing a European Educational Research Area, in establishing cross-border networks, and in (re)shaping educational research agendas. Through innovative empirical analysis of programs of research on various levels and education researchers’ collaborations in scientific networks, they provide insights into (supra)national dynamics in education-related scholarship. Theory-guided content analysis of research projects funded by leading national funding agencies and by the most highly developed supranational research funding instrument – the EU Framework Programme – enables the authors to embed findings on Germany, the United Kingdom, and Norway in a broader European perspective.

Die an interkulturellen Fragestellungen interessierten Literaturwissenschaften arbeiten bislang überwiegend gegenwartszentriert. Im aktuellen Theoriediskurs wird jedoch häufiger darauf hingewiesen, dass eine Beschränkung der Interkulturalitätsforschung auf rezente Globalisierungsphänomene zu kurz gegriffen ist und die Notwendigkeit einer Historisierung besteht. In diesem Sinne unternimmt der Band einen Vorstoß zur Erweiterung des Forschungsfeldes im Zeichen des Diachron-Geschichtlichen und erreicht damit eine signifikante Komplexitätssteigerung des häufig zu undifferenziert gedachten Interkulturalitätsbegriffs.

Die Konjunktur des Politischen in neueren Kinofilmen und Fernsehserien ist mit tradierten Oppositionen – wie der von Inhalt und Form – nicht mehr zu beschreiben. Vielmehr lässt sich konstatieren, dass Theorie und Praxis des Politischen längst mit filmischen Fiktionen verflochten sind: Diese vermitteln zwischen universalen und partikularen Perspektiven, entwerfen Figurentypen und Verhaltensmuster und intervenieren in aktuelle Diskurse. Ein neuer »medialer Realismus«, der diese Unhintergehbarkeit der Medien selbst sichtbar macht, bildet den thematischen Horizont der Beiträge dieses Sammelbands. Unter den Aspekten des Affizierens, Modellierens und Tradierens werden die theoretischen und ästhetischen Neuansätze des aktuellen politischen Kinos anhand einschlägiger Beispiele diskutiert.

The Greater Region Saar-Lor-Lux : Towards cross-border supraregionalisation ? Border areas are often portrayed as 'laboratories of European integration'. Beyond the discourses and symbols, what does the concept of cross-border region actually entail? By characterising the region as the construction of an identity, a territoriality and a governance system perpetuated over time, this publication identifies and questions the specificities of these processes in the cross-border context. It distinguishes between inter- and supraregional cooperation thus questioning a border area's capacity to develop an ad hoc cross-border cooperation whose raison d'être consists in strengthening the commitments pertaining to the border area's interests. This study is underpinned by a discourse analysis and a conceptualisation of cross-border territoriality and supraregional institution. In this respect, the significance of the EGTC (European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation), a European instrument providing a legal framework for cooperation, is analysed. This issue is explored in depth using the emblematic case of the Greater Region, a border area that launched in 2008 a long-term strategy to develop a 'cross-border polycentric metropolitan region'. Composed of Lorraine (France), Luxembourg, Wallonia (Belgium), Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland (Germany), the Greater Region constitutes one of the oldest border areas (1971) and presents the highest concentration of cross-border workers in Europe.

Les procédures d’insolvabilité présentent de plus en plus fréquemment une dimension européenne qui fait naître nombre de questions particulières. Quelles sont les juridictions compétentes pour ouvrir une procédure d’insolvabilité et quelle loi doivent-elles appliquer ? Comment assurer l’égalité entre les créanciers dans quelque État membre qu’ils se trouvent ? Comment protéger ceux qui sont titulaires de sûretés réelles portant sur des biens situés à l’étranger ? Comment prendre en compte l’appartenance du débiteur à un groupe de sociétés? Depuis le 26 juin 2017, ces questions sont régies par le Règlement n° 2015/848 du 20 mai 2015, qui modifie nombre des solutions en vigueur sous l’empire de l’ancien Règlement n° 1346/2000 du 29 mai 2000. Cet ouvrage s’adresse à tous les praticiens et universitaires intéressés par le droit européen de l’insolvabilité. En plus d’exposer les solutions issues du Règlement ou de la jurisprudence européenne, il met en exergue, le cas échéant, l’interprétation de ces solutions par la jurisprudence et la doctrine de différents États membres.

Willy Mommer jun. (1921-1972), eminenter Vertreter der wohl bedeutendsten Eupener Musikerfamilie, erlangte als Dirigent, Komponist und Kulturmanager internationale Ausstrahlung. Doch hinter dem Künstler verbirgt sich auch eine der spannendsten Kriegsbiografien unserer Region. Als Funker beim deutschen militärischen Nachrichtendienst („Abwehr“) in Münster, Köln und Belzig bei Berlin konnte er sich durch seine pianistische Meisterschaft Zugang zum höchsten Machtzirkel des Militärs verschaffen und auf diese Weise den belgischen Widerstand und die britischen Nachrichtendienste mit kriegswichtigen Informationen versorgen.

Friedhelm Brusniak will have duly celebrated his sixty-fifth birthday with birthday cake, sparkling wine and other culinary delicacies in the family. The present academic birthday cake is addressed to the friend and colleague Friedhelm Brusniak in recognition of his life achievement. The authorship is composed of companions with whom Friedhelm Brusniak, on the one hand, was, closely connected during his long career as a scholar, and, on the other hand, with fellow researchers, he came later into contact as a networker in the international context. For the editor, it was important that the academic freedom of every one should be respected and that no restrictions should be imposed on the authors. The 21 articles, in four languages – German, English, French, Italian – are published in alphabetical order of the authors. (The only exception are the texts by Andreas Eschen and Anna-Christine Rhode-Jüchtern. They are related and printed successively.) The authors come from Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Hungary and the United States of America. The portrait at the beginning of the book was drawn by Barbara Plattner. The articles are preceded by four greeting messages, including a sounding one composed by longtime friend Heinz Werner Zimmermann. Although ordered without a thematic context, the contributions reflect the considerable spectrum of the long-standing scientific work of Friedhelm Brusniak. In addition to his ambitious work as a university professor and scholar, he did never refrain from accepting additional responsibilities, e.g. from 1994 to 2002 as President of the German Mozart-Society and from 2009 to 2013 as the first chairman of the Hermann Zilcher Society. The texts in connection with Leo Kestenberg occupy a large part of the book. This will be noted with satisfaction by Friedhelm Brusniak, president (since 2012) of the International Leo-Kestenberg-Society. Furthermore, the reader will find texts on choral, wind and amateur music research ("community music") as well as on questions of music education in a historical context and an empirical perspective. Also, the contributions cover a timeframe of more than 400 years. They deal s.l. with cultural heritage in a multi-faceted Europe and beyond. Finally, the essays with a philosophical-religious background and in connection with Freemasonry should be emphasized do not stand alone but should be considered as an integrative part. The editor is particularly satisfied and grateful from coming personally in contact with Karl-Heinrich Ehrenforth, the esteemed colleague and friend of Friedhelm Brusniak, and that Prof. Ehrenforth probably provided his last publication to this Festschrift. After his death, his daughter, Christiane Ehrenforth, granted permission to publish. Friedhelm Brusniak’s affinity for interdisciplinarity was met more unconsciously than consciously. He uses the term "interface research"! This has been the case for biography research since his employment with Conrad Rein as well as for musicological research from his home region Waldeck. This is especially true for choral music research, which became his central field of scholarship at the beginning of the nineties. Friedhelm Brusniak comes from a family wind musicians. In the research efforts of the International Society for the Research and Promotion of Wind Music (IGEB), he recognised the congeniality to choral music research, s.l. "community music". For many years now, his contributions to IGEB conferences have received much attention. Conversely, Friedhelm Brusniak received, since the beginning of the eighties, the decisive impulses from the IGEB under Wolfgang Suppan, which he was able to transfer to choral music research and to the Singer Museum in Feuchtwangen, where he serves as a scientific head. As a trained music educator and chair of the Department of Music Education at the University of Würzburg, Friedhelm Brusniak maintained European and international partnerships with music pedagogues, initially in the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Süd (AG Süd) and then in the Forum of European Music Pedagogy (FEMP). His connection with Luxembourg, at the intersection of French and German music pedagogic traditions, was a matter of concern to Friedhelm Brusniak. He was particularly inspired to detect and expand European networks. Please refer to Martin Straus, who provides a more detailed glimpse in the following article. The number of non-German authors is an impressive proof of Friedhelm Brusniak’s constant and interesting view across the borders of his country and his successfully established and maintained contacts.

Univers en perpétuelle expansion et au foisonnement chaotique, Internet offre un nombre incalculable d’outils, dont l’exploration paraît parfois hors de portée. Dans le paysage des sciences humaines, les blogs, les logiciels bibliographiques, les bases de données, les éditions en ligne et les wikis, tous ces objets qui éveillaient notre curiosité il y a une décennie, sont devenus aussi anodins qu’omniprésents. Mais comment bien s’en servir ? Les appréhensions face à ces outils — et leur simple mais robuste méconnaissance — sont encore largement répandues. Or on ne peut plus ignorer leur intérêt, voire leur nécessité et les chercheurs qui s’y essaient ne savent souvent pas par quel bout attraper ces logiciels nouveaux. C’est à cela que cet ouvrage veut les aider, de façon simple et précise, et il entend le faire sans en cacher les difficultés, mais sans dissimuler non plus qu’elles sont désormais connues, donc surmontables, et que, dans la majorité des cas, le résultat vaut tous les efforts à consentir.

Die vorliegende Veröffentlichung ist ein Ergebnis dreier Forschungsprojekte, darunter hauptsächlich „Musikgeschichte in Luxemburg“. Es wurde in den Jahren 2012- 2015 unter der Leitung von Damien Sagrillo durchgeführt und von der Universität Luxemburg finanziert. Mit der staatlichen Unabhängigkeit Luxemburgs im 19. Jahrhundert und der Errichtung eines Bischofsitzes im Jahre 1870 hat sich, neben der weltlichen, zudem die Kirchenmusik in Luxemburg etabliert. Die zweite Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ist geprägt durch die kirchenmusikalische Reformbewegung des Cäcilianismus, der seinen Niederschlag auch in Luxemburg hauptsächlich in der Person Heinrich Oberhoffers fand.

Die vorliegende Veröffentlichung ist ein Ergebnis dreier Forschungsprojekte, darunter hauptsächlich „Musikgeschichte in Luxemburg“. Es wurde in den Jahren 2012- 2015 unter der Leitung von Damien Sagrillo durchgeführt und von der Universität Luxemburg finanziert. Mit der staatlichen Unabhängigkeit Luxemburgs im 19. Jahrhundert und der Errichtung eines Bischofsitzes im Jahre 1870 hat sich, neben der weltlichen, zudem die Kirchenmusik in Luxemburg etabliert. Die zweite Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ist geprägt durch die kirchenmusikalische Reformbewegung des Cäcilianismus, der seinen Niederschlag auch in Luxemburg hauptsächlich in der Person Heinrich Oberhoffers fand. Im vorliegenden Band wird der Briefwechsel zwischen Oberhoffer und dem Hauptvertreter des Cäcilianismus Franz Xaver Witt als Faksimile und in transkribierter Form erstmals veröffentlicht. Vorangestellt sind biographische Skizzen von Witt und Oberhoffer sowie eine Einführung in den Cäcilianismus. Die Studie ist nicht nur für den Cäcilianismus luxemburgischer Prägung von Belang, sondern versteht sich außerdem als Anregung für weitere Forschungsanstrengungen im Zusammenhang mit katholischer Kirchenmusik zwischen 1850 und 1900.

Many libraries own an extensive collection of historical maps. Beside their value as historical objects, these maps are an important source of information for researchers in various scientific disciplines. This ranges from the actual history of cartography and general history to the geographic and social sciences. With the progressing digitisation of libraries and archives, these maps become more easily available to a larger public. A basic level of digitisation consists of scanned bitmap images, tagged with some basic bibliographic information such as title, author and year of production. In order to make the maps more accessible, further metadata describing the contained information is desirable. This would enable more user-friendly interfaces, relevant queries of a database, and automatic analyses. This international workshop provides a forum for the communication of results that may be useful to the community. Researchers and practitioners of many areas working on unlocking the content of old maps have contributed to this year’s program — humanities scholars, developers, computer and information scientists and map enthusiasts.

Fondé au début du XIIIe siècle, le monastère de Sant'Apollinare de Milan fut l'un des centres de propagation les plus importants dans la Lombardie médievale de l'experience monastique féminine liée à la règle de François d'Assise. Le tabularium médiéval de Sant'Apollinare, à présent dispersé dans plusieurs archives et bibliothèques milanaises, préserve en outre des nombreux témoignages indirects du processus de transformation de l'appareil communal ambrosien vers les nouvelles formes de la Seigneurie, qui eut lieu à partir du milieu du XIIIe siècle. Dans ce livre, on propose l'édition critique de 109 chartes en latin provenant des anciennes archives de Sant'Apollinare - autant actes publics, surtout pontificaux et épiscopaux, que privés - remontant à la période entre 1204 et 1263, et actuellement conservées aux Archives de l'État de Milan.

Europe’s sovereign debt crisis and the accompanying national bank crises in the European Union brought bank regulation and supervision to the top of the EU policy agenda. In a few short years, we have witnessed a ‘great leap forward’ for European integration marked by over a dozen pieces of EU legislation shaping the operation of banks, rules on bank capital, reconfigured supervisory agencies, and Banking Union. The significance of these measures lies however, in the fact that they constitute the most dramatic transfer of policy-making powers to the European level since the start of Economic and Monetary Union in 1999. This volume addresses the three main political battles behind the adoption of these new regulatory and supervisory policies. First, it examines divisions among states, both according to their domestic institutional structures, including distinct financial systems, as well as their creditor or debtor status in the crisis. Second, it studies the battle over national versus supranational jurisdiction. Third, it explores the conflictual process of policy learning and the activation of epistemic communities who claim competence to address the crisis. [less ▲]

The Conflict of Laws, also known as private international law, is a field of the greatest importance in an increasingly globalized world. The analysis of any legal issue, in a case involving more than one country, must start with an assessment of which court could potentially hear the case and which law it would apply. Contrary to other manuals or casebooks, which focus on the law of one jurisdiction, this innovative casebook offers a comparative treatment of the field. On each issue, materials from several jurisdictions are discussed and compared. The approach centers on comprehending the common principles of the field, but also highlights the fundamental differences. The goal is to train lawyers who not only will know the law of their own jurisdiction, but also will have an understanding of the key differences existing between the main models, and will thus be able to interact usefully with clients from other jurisdictions. This casebook systematically presents and compares the laws of four jurisdictions: the United States, the European Union, France and England (where left untouched by EU harmonization). It offers additional insight into rules applicable in China and Japan and also discusses remarkable solutions adopted in a wide range of jurisdictions such as Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Tunisia. All materials from non-English speaking jurisdictions have been translated into English. Key features of the casebook: • written by a leading authority in the field • carefully selected extracts from primary and secondary sources build a clear picture of the field • expert analytical commentary and questions set the extracts in context • US, EU, French and English perspectives integrated throughout the text to ensure maximum relevance and encourage students to make comparative assessments • numerous references to Chinese and Japanese solutions • leads students through the field from beginning to end • perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook.

The Principles of European Cooperative Law (PECOL) focus on the ‘ideal’ legal identity of cooperatives. Drafted by a team of legal scholars, the PECOL aim to describe the common core of European cooperative law. They are based on both existing cooperative law in Europe and the EU regulation on the societas cooperativa europaea. The Principles are accompanied by commentaries which illustrate the rationale and legislative background of each principle, and link them to the key features of cooperative identity. The PECOL are articulated into five chapters corresponding to the main aspects around which a cooperative’s identity may be structured, namely the purpose pursued, internal governance, financial structure, external control and cooperation among cooperatives. The second part of the book presents the national reports upon which the PECOL were based. The reports offer a detailed overview of the cooperative law of seven European jurisdictions (Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and the UK), and thus provide a unique opportunity for law-makers, practitioners and researchers to compare, circulate and apply best practices of cooperative legislation.

L’acte uniforme sur les sociétés coopératives, adopté en 2010, est le dernier de l’Organisation pour l’harmonisation en Afrique du droit des affaires. Et pourtant, depuis cette date, seuls quelques articles lui ont été consacrés, et aucun ouvrage substantiel. Un colloque organisé à Yaoundé en 2013 est venu combler cette lacune académique ; voici rassemblées les conclusions auxquelles il est parvenu. Ce livre est une ouverture, ce qui signifie qu’il ne répond pas à toutes les questions. Il apporte cependant de nombreuses réponses à ceux qui doutent du sens de cette législation applicable à 17 pays. À ce titre, il sera utile à tous ceux qui s’intéressent aux coopératives africaines : les coopératives et leurs réseaux, en ce compris les coopératives d’épargne et de crédit, les décideurs publics, les nombreuses ONG qui travaillent avec des coopératives, les conseils juridiques, mais aussi bien-sûr les chercheurs et les étudiants. Écrits par les meilleurs spécialistes du droit des coopératives du continent africain, ce livre est à la fois collectif et unitaire. Il est collectif par la diversité des auteurs, de leur sensibilité. Il est unitaire par le travail éditorial d’articulation, afin de faire de la collection des textes issus du colloque une réflexion homogène sur cet acte uniforme. [less ▲]

La notion de frontière normative ambitionne de faciliter l’analyse de l’Union européenne en tant que système constitutionnel cohérent aussi bien en interne qu'en externe. En externe, ce système influence différemment les ordres juridiques tiers. L’analyse du cas norvégien, suisse, liechtensteinois, voire du Brexit, souligne l’importance de l’appropriation politique du fait juridique d’intégration. L’analyse institutionnelle des relations suggère que l’objet de délimitation de l'espace européen n’est plus la divergence normative mais la compétence législative. En interne, l’analyse tridimensionnelle du système constitutionnel permet la coexistence des ordres juridiques des Etats membres et de l'Union au sein d’un même système constitutionnel formé conformément à leurs identités constitutionnelles respectives. Les relations normatives se formalisent via une dialectique matérielle indépendamment de la hiérarchie interne. Cette analyse invite à affiner le concept de primauté. L’ambition ultime est d’alimenter la réflexion sur le réajustement de l’analyse constitutionnelle des relations entre ordres juridiques en tenant pleinement compte de l’existence de l'Union européenne.

Who « invented » the Internet? Who holds the keys to the Internet? What sources, what actors should be given prominence in a history of the Internet and the Web able to fully take into account its origins, trajectories, turns, evolutions, continuities? The emergence of Arpanet in the 1960s, then, ten years later, of the Internet, is the product of a long-term innovation process that is yet to find its closure today, a process marked by the intertwining of socio-technical paths and heterogeneous networks of actors. Fifty years after the Arpanet project was launched, twenty-five years after the inception of the Web, twenty years since the beginning of the Internet Archive -- by means of a selection of sources and research essays -- this anthology seeks to provide an extended panorama of the variety of actors, trajectories, perspectives, methods and writings of Internet and Web history. The anthology is organized in three parts, according to a chronological progression: from Arpanet to the Internet, then the early-adopters Internet, its appropriation by political arenas and the first steps of an "at-large" governance, then the early-2000s democratisation of the Web vis-à-vis the general public. This work ties together the technical, economic, social, cultural, political and legal approaches to the Internet and offers a broader vision of a history that is not only written by and from the United States, but lives and thrives today at the international level.

Il titolo del libro separa in endiadi un’espressione unitaria – conversione del contratto di lavoro – tanto ricorrente nel linguaggio comune e nella prassi quanto ritenuta inaccoglibile sul piano giuridico. L’accostamento della tecnica della conversione del contratto alla disciplina dei rapporti di lavoro è volto a segnalare, almeno in ipotesi, una certa contrapposizione tra la fattispecie di cui all’art. 1424 c.c. e le norme del diritto del lavoro che implicano l’invalidazione del contratto originario e ne prospettano una proiezione futura. Sullo sfondo di tale meccanismo si registrano risultanze normative che negli anni recenti hanno mutato sensibilmente la fisionomia, l’estensione e gli equilibri interni della legislazione lavoristica. Tra queste, la progressiva individualizzazione del diritto del lavoro si è manifestata attraverso un tentativo di ridurre l’importanza della contrattazione collettiva e un ritorno al contratto individuale quale fonte di regolazione del rapporto di lavoro, fattori che hanno favorito l’accentuarsi di un’interazione più diretta fra legge e autonomia individuale. In misura crescente si sono così rilevati momenti di tensione tra uguaglianza e libertà, tra eteronomia e autonomia. Confrontandosi con tali mutamenti, il libro mira a raccogliere i diversi significati dell’espressione “conversione del contratto” impiegati nel diritto del lavoro per proporne una sistemazione ordinata, in linea con i caratteri tipici del rapporto fra norma invalidante e aspirazione ad assicurare ove possibile la continuità del rapporto di lavoro.

Bei der Erhebung von 50'000 stellungspflichtigen Männern in den Jahren 2012/13 sowie rund 1’800 gleichaltrigen Schweizerinnen standen zwei Fragen im Vordergrund. Erstens: Was sind die aktuellen Lebens- und Zukunftsvorstellungen der jungen Erwachsenen? Und: Welche Rolle spielen neue Medien im Leben einer der ersten Generationen von Digital Natives? Die Vergleiche mit früheren ch-x-Erhebungen bei den jungen Erwachsenen an der Schwelle von der Jugend- ins Erwachsenenalter belegen eine hohe Trendstabilität bei den Grundwerten, bei der Rangierung der Wichtigkeit von Lebensbereichen sowie bei den Determinanten der Berufswahl und den Familien- und Geschlechterrollenbildern. Werte, Familie und Freizeit Junge Erwachsene streben nach Unabhängigkeit und Selbstverwirklichung, betonen individuelle Bedürfnisse und aspirieren auf einen hohen sozialen Status mittels beruflichem Erfolg. Sie rangieren die Wichtigkeit der Lebensbereiche gleich wie die Befragten früherer ch-x-Erhebungen. Bei der Familiengestaltung sind herkömmliche Familien- und Geschlechtermodelle nach wie vor hoch im Kurs. Man möchte heiraten und Kinder haben. Der Mann wird ungebrochen in der Ernährerrolle gesehen, während die Frau sich um die Familie kümmern sollte. Diesbezüglich unterscheiden sich die Lebensansichten und Zukunftsvorstellungen der Digital Natives nur geringfügig von denjenigen der vorhergehenden Generationen. Wandel prägt indes das Freizeitverhalten insofern, als informationstechnische Unterhaltungsangebote und soziale Netzwerke neben herkömmlichen Medien zu wichtigen Gestaltungsfaktoren für die Freizeit avanciert sind. Die jungen Erwachsenen stehen heute in einem sich akzentuierenden Spannungsfeld zwischen dem Wunsch nach Selbstverwirklichung und dem Festhalten an traditionellen institutionalisierten Strukturen und Rollenbildern. Für erstere bieten die neuen digitalen Medien in Art und Form zahlreiche neue Optionen, die rege genutzt werden. Für letztere steht das Festhalten an klassischen Familienmodellen und hohen Berufszielen. Damit steht diese Generation vor der Herausforderung, viele nur noch schwer zu vereinbarende Wünsche mit gesellschaftlichen Erwartungen in Übereinstimmung zu bringen. [less ▲]

Children and their parents have become a focal point of debates on ‘new social risks’ and the strong need for ‘new public policies’ in many European welfare states. Policy-related elites, along with UNICEF, the OECD, and the EU, have converged in defining such risks. They outlined parenting support measures, rules, and procedures to better safeguard children and to activate their potential, promote their well-being, and ensure equal opportunities. Parents are expected to offer their children ‘grade A’ parenting. However, they are increasingly suspected of failing to meet public expectations. Hence, agencies advocating children’s best interest are intervening in parenting practices at an increasingly earlier age on the grounds of potential risks. The boundaries between what has been seen as ‘family’ or ‘private’ versus ‘public affairs’ are being redrawn by discourses as well as by ‘evidence-based’ measures to intervene and tackle child-related risks. Contributors to this special issue from Belgium, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden are scrutinizing this ‘turn to parenting’. They analyse which parenting practices are now ‘in the spotlight’ and report on recent forms of support for parents. Whereas debates on ‘new risks’ and the need for ‘child-centred social investments’ have converged, parenting support measures still vary across countries both quantitatively and qualitatively. Such variations result from path-dependent institutional settings, public sentiments, and policy ‘cultures’. This issue offers an excellent opportunity to study parenting support policies in countries representing different ‘worlds’ of family policy. It highlights different ideas on the child’s proper status in society and on good parenting along with variations in the influence of experts on parenting and practitioners’ attitudes towards it – especially the parenting practiced by mothers from different backgrounds.

With the demise of four multinational empires at the end of the First World War (Russian, German, Habsburg and Ottoman), nationalist forces all over Europe claimed the right to a territory for what they considered to be their own people. The peace treaties resulting from the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 caused a major redrawing of the map of Europe. As a result of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany handed over a considerable amount of its territory at its Western, Northern and, most significantly, Eastern borders, to neighbouring states. This edited volume focuses on the regions lying in what one could call a ring around Germany lost by Germany after the First World War. The European border regions of an-nexation, as I call them, switched their sovereignty as follows: Alsace-Lorraine became French, Eupen-Malmedy Belgian, North Schleswig Danish, various former Prussian Eastern provinces became Polish, the Hlučin region Czechoslovakian, and the Memel region Lithuanian. By set-ting up a historical comparison of the living conditions of children in European borderlands of annexation throughout the 20th Century, this edited volume provided the context for an encounter of a new combination of categories from different disciplines: Borderland Studies meets Child Studies.

In The Century of Science, a multicultural, international team of authors examines the global rise of scholarly research in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health (STEM+) fields. At the beginning of the 20th century, the global center-point of scientific productivity was about half way between Western Europe and the U.S., in the North Atlantic. Then, the center moved steadily westward and slightly southward—reflecting the burgeoning science capacity of the U.S. supported by America’s thriving public and private universities, technological innovation, and overall economic growth. After WWII, this began to change as the course of the world’s scientific center of gravity turned and for the next 70 years traveled eastward, the direction it still travels, especially due to the rise of China and other prolific East Asian countries, such as Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. Europe continues to be the center of global science. Focusing on these developments, this volume provides historical and sociological understandings of the ways that higher education has become an institution that, more than ever before, shapes science and society. Case studies, supported by the most historically and spatially extensive database on STEM+ publications available, of selected countries in Europe, North America, East Asia, and the Middle East, emphasize recurring themes: the institutionalization and differentiation of higher education systems to the proliferation of university-based scientific research fostered by research policies that support continued university expansion leading to the knowledge society. Growing worldwide, research universities appear to be the most legitimate sites for knowledge production. Countries like France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Japan began the 20th century with prerequisites in place to realize the emerging model of university-based research. Over the past several decades, China, South Korea, and Taiwan, with different historical legacies and conflicts in education and research policy, have witnessed explosive growth, sustained by public and private funds. Qatar recently embarked on an ambitious government-driven effort to develop a world-class university sector and cultivate academic STEM+ research from scratch. These more recent entrants to the global scientific enterprise pose the question whether it is possible to leapfrog across decades, or even centuries, of cultivating university systems, to compete globally. Simultaneously with international and regional competition, world-leading science increasingly implies collaboration across cultural and political borders as global scientific production and networking continue to rise exponentially. This volume’s case studies offer new insights into how countries develop the university-based knowledge thought fundamental to meeting social needs and economic demands. Despite repeated warnings that universities would lose in relevance to other organizational forms in the production of knowledge, our findings demonstrate incontrovertibly that universities have become more—not less—important actors in the world of knowledge. The past hundred years have seen the global triumph of the research university. [less ▲]
