Mit rund 150 000 Beschäftigten und mehr als 600 Unternehmen zählt die Automobilindustrie zu den wichtigsten Wirtschaftszweigen in der Großregion. In der jüngeren Vergangenheit haben allerdings die Globalisierung, technologischer Wandel und vor allem die globale Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise die Branche stark beeinflusst und vor große Herausforderungen gestellt. Der Beitrag versucht, diese Entwicklungen nachzuzeichnen und mögliche Strategien und Maßnahmen zu diskutieren, mit denen auf die Herausforderungen reagiert werden kann. Dieser Beitrag ergänzt den vor der Wirtschaftskrise von 2008 geschriebenen Beitrag Autoindustrie 2007 von C. Schulz, P. Dörrenbächer und H. Pansch. Die beiden Karten zeigen die Betriebe der Autohersteller und ihrer Zulieferer mit mindestens 500 Arbeitsplätzen in den Jahren 2007 (C. Schulz/P. Dörrenbächer/H. Pansch) und 2011 (C.K. Hahn) im Vergleich, also kurz vor bzw. nach der 2008 ausgebrochenen Finanzkrise. [less ▲]

Böden sind nicht nur die verwitterte und durch verschiedenste Prozesse überprägte oberste Schicht der Erdkruste, sie sind vor allem Standort für Pflanzen und damit – neben den Umweltkompartimenten Wasser und Luft – die Grundlage des terrestrischen Lebens auf der Erde. Die Karte der "Böden der Großregion" zeigt als Ausschnitt der European Soil Database (ESDB) die typischen Bodentypen der Großregion in einer einheitlichen Klassifikation. Kartographisch abgebildet sind hier aufgrund gleicher Eigenschaften abgrenzbare bodengeographische Einheiten und ihre dominierenden Bodentypen. Deren Verbreitungsmuster, Eigenschaften und auch Probleme werden hier vorgestellt. [less ▲]

In diesen Beitrag werden die über Jahrzehnte hinweg gewachsen Strukturen der internationalen, interregionalen und grenznachbarschaftlichen Kooperation in der Großregion SaarLorLux vorgestellt. Die Betrachtung erfolgt ab den späten 1960er Jahren über die 1990er Jahre, in denen die grenzüberschreitende Zusammenarbeit an allen EU-Binnengrenzen einen deutlichen Entwicklungsschub erfuhr; bis in die 2000er Jahre, in denen eine spürbare Verfestigung der grenzüberschreitenden Kooperation einsetzt. Die jeweiligen Entwicklungen werden an die entsprechenden Rahmenbedingungen, die unter anderem von Brüssel gesetzt werden, rückgebunden und nach Akteursebenen differenziert. [less ▲]

This paper examines the effects that the reception of decisions of international organizations and bodies in EU law may have in procedural standards followed in EU law and practice, such as participation and transparency. Illustrative examples shed light on the practical interactions between EU and global regulatory systems and their likely negative impact on procedural standards. The current EU rules of reception of such decisions are limited in two respects. First, issues of procedural protection are decided by the system of origin, the procedural rules of which may not be as developed as those in force in the EU. Second, rules of reception do not capture the effects of the varied interconnections developed between regulatory regimes at the global and at the EU level. The paper argues that the possible depletion of procedural standards in the segments of EU law that result from the reception of decisions of international bodies has relevant legitimacy implications. Procedural standards that may be bypassed have become accepted standards of legitimacy of the exercise of public power within the EU. Some give effect to norms of EU law and governance now enshrined in the Treaties. To the extent that they may be weakened by effect of reception of decisions of international organizations and bodies, the exercise of public authority is potentially unleashed in those areas of intersection of legal systems. The paper further lays down the premises of a normative conception of the relationships between legal orders that would allow preserving procedural standards in the areas of interaction between EU and global regulatory regimes.

Nature parks are relatively extensive, mainly rural areas, whose landscapes are primarily characterised by traditional agricultural activities and are characterised by valuable aesthetic features and characteristics suitable for the reception and development of leisure activities and ecotourism. Far from large settlements, peri-urbanisation has only changed them slightly. They have been set up at different points in time within institutional frameworks whose objectives are clearly different, depending on the legislation of the four countries of the Greater Region SaarLorLux. Initially, the focus was on nature conservation, but since the 1990s sustainable local development has become increasingly important. [less ▲]

We provide empirical support and a theoretical explanation for the vicious circle of political corruption and tax evasion in which countries often fall into. We address this issue in the context of a model with two distinct groups of agents: citizens and politicians. Citizens decide the fraction of their income for which they evade taxes. Politicians decide the fraction of the public budget that they peculate. We show that multiple self-fulfilling equilibria with different levels of corruption can emerge based on the existence of strategic complementarities, indicating that corruption may corrupt. Furthermore, we find that standard deterrence policies cannot eliminate multiplicity. Instead, policies that impose a strong moral cost on tax evaders and corrupt politicians can lead to a unique equilibrium. [less ▲]

Die Großregion kennzeichnet sich durch einzigartige Arbeitsmarktverflechtungen zwischen ihren Teilgebieten. Das grenzüberschreitende Pendeln über nationale Grenzen wurde durch den Europäischen Einigungsprozess spürbar erleichtert, in dessen Zuge der Status des Grenzgängers unter sozial- und steuerrechtlichen Gesichtspunkten definiert wurde. Diese Definition unterscheidet jedoch nicht zwischen Grenzgängern, die aus ihrer ‚angestammten Region’ ins benachbarte Ausland pendeln und solchen, die aus dem benachbarten Ausland in die ‚angestammte Region’ an ihren Arbeitsplatz kommen. Das letztgenannte atypische Grenzgängerwesen gewinnt in der Großregion jedoch zunehmend an Bedeutung. Im Kontext der grenzüberscheitenden Wohnort- und atypischen Arbeitnehmermobilität werden in diesem Beitrag die Motive der atypischen Grenzgänger sowie Fragen der räumlichen Organisation von Alltagspraktiken im Zuge des Wohnortwechsels untersucht. Ferner werden Aspekte des sozialen Zusammenlebens am Wohnort beleuchtet und die subjektive Bewertung der Wohnsitzverlagerung dargelegt. Die Betrachtung dieser Teilaspekte erfolgt vergleichend am Beispiel der atypischen Pendelbewegungen an der saarländisch-lothringischen und luxemburgischen Grenze. [less ▲]

In this paper we construct a theoretical model of spatial banking competition that considers the differential information among banks and potential borrowers in order to investigate how market structure affects the lending behavior of banks and their incentives to invest in screening technology. Consistent with the prevailing view in the relevant literature, our results reveal that competition reduces lending cost, which, in turn, encourages the entry of new customers in the loan market. Also, that the transportation cost that potential borrowers have to pay in order to reach the bank of their interest is decreased with the degree of competitiveness. Importantly, we demonstrate that market structure exerts a considerable positive effect on banks’ incentives to screen their loan applicants since banks are found to invest more in screening as competition in the market becomes higher. This is to say, banks resort to screening that serves as a buffer mechanism against bad credit which entails higher risk and which is more likely under competitive conditions. Overall, our findings provide support to a rather close link between the degree of competition, bank lending activity, and the investment of banks in screening technology. [less ▲]

The distributional impact of the structural pension reform in Latin American countries has been largely absent in the economic debate. However, this reform may widen inequality in old-age and reduce welfare. In this paper we study the consequences of implementing a multi-pillar system in one of these countries. We take advantage of available administrative records for Peruvian workers to estimate inequality in pensions, pension debt and welfare. Overall, our results show that the pension debt and inequality can be substantially reduced without welfare losses. [less ▲]

Die Karte zeigt die vollständige Verbreitung und Verteilung aller Hochschuleinrichtungen in der Großregion im Juli 2010. Nicht erfasst wurden die zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Forschungsinstitute im Untersuchungsraum, an denen keine Bildungsabschlüsse erworben werden können. In der Großregion grenzen 2 Kulturen, 3 Sprachen, 4 Schul- und Bildungssysteme sowie die 5 Teilregionen aneinander, in denen verschiedene Wege eingeschlagen wurden, um die junge Generation auf das Berufsleben vorzubereiten. Bislang unterscheiden sich die Schul- und Bildungssysteme in Aufbau, Ablauf, Inhalt sowie den Ausbildungszeiträumen und den jeweiligen Zugangsbedingungen noch deutlich. Gemeinsame Voraussetzung für den Besuch einer der hier erfassten Universitäten oder Hochschulformen ist allerdings in den meisten Fällen der erfolgreiche Abschluss der Sekundarstufe II, also entweder das Baccalauréat, das Abitur oder die Fachhochschulreife bzw. ein ihnen entsprechender Schulabschluss.

Schon in der Antike entstanden die ersten Großsporteinrichtungen, ihre auffällige Verbreitung im 19. Jh. blieb allerdings den wohlhabenden sozialen Schichten vorbehalten. Erst im 20. Jh. führten die Demokratisierung und der zunehmende Wohlstand der Bevölkerung, verstärkt durch politischen Voluntarismus dazu, dass die Großsporteinrichtungen einen Aufschwung erlebten, der seither nicht mehr nachgelassen hat. Verschiedene dieser Sporteinrichtungen wurden immer größer und einigen wurden neben ihrer sportlichen Bestimmung andere Aufgaben zugedacht, kultureller (Konzerte, …), rekreativer (Geschäfte, …) oder berufsorientierter Art (Seminare, …). Die Grenzen zwischen diesen Zielen werden immer durchlässiger. So entsteht aus den Großsporteinrichtungen eine Kategorie geographischer Objekte, die es bis dato nicht gab und denen eine bedeutende Rolle bei der Raumentwicklung Aufbau zukommt. [less ▲]

In this paper we study how the trade costs and the intensity of competition can explain the existence of bilateral trade, unilateral trade and no trade within an industry. We show as trade costs decrease from very high to very low values, the global economy moves from autarky to a regime of bilateral trade, through a regime of unilateral trade from the larger to the smaller country. Bilateral or unilateral trade is less likely when the global economy gets more competitive. Finally, the market delivers an outcome in which capital is too much concentrated in the larger country.

Although the first sports facilities date back to Antiquity, the 19th century was marked by their diffusion for the benefit of the wealthy social classes. It was not until the 20th century that the democratisation and enrichment of society, supported by political will, gave them a boom that has not been denied. Some of these facilities are becoming larger and larger and, in addition to their primary sporting vocation, have other objectives of a cultural (concerts, etc.), recreational (shops, etc.) or professional (seminars, etc.) nature. The boundary between these objectives is becoming tenuous. This makes large sports facilities a new category of geographical objects with considerable stakes in terms of territorial construction. Having become profit centres, sometimes financed solely by the private sector, and more often than not supported by a partnership in which the local authorities relay their development ambitions, they are revealing and are among the most important drivers of the dynamics of the territories in which they are located.

This paper considers the spatial structure of a city subject to final demand and vertical linkages. Individuals consume differentiated goods (or services) and firms purchase differentiated inputs (or services) in product (or service) markets where forms compete under monopolistic competition. Workers rent their residential lots in an urban land market and contribute to the production of differentiated goods and inputs. We show that firms and workers co-agglomerate and endogenously form a city. We characterize and discuss the spatial distribution of firms and consumers in such cities on one- and twodimensional spaces (linear city and planar city). We show that final demand and vertical linkages raise the urban density and reduce the city spread. We finally show that a city is too much dispersed compared to the social optimum. [less ▲]

Even today, school segregation continues to be understood as legitimate in Germany. Charting the discourse of learning disability provides insights into special education’s development as a segregated, independent system of school types and the resulting legitimacy that contributes to the maintenance of school segregation throughout educational systems in Germany. We focus on learning disability discourse and knowledge, the special education profession, and the expansion of its main school type, the support school (Hilfsschule), from around 1900 to today. The special education profession exhibits not only junctures but also remarkable historical continuity. As delineated here, a key factor in the continued growth of special education is the authority of the profession with respect to “learning disability” and the discourse that continues to legitimate the classification of pupils as “learning disabled” and the resulting segregated schooling.

The Greater Region is the cradle of industrialisation in continental Europe. As early as the 1820s, heavy industry and mechanical engineering, the core competencies of the industrialisation process, were of considerable economic importance far beyond the region. From the second half of the 19th century onwards, the iron and steel industry shaped the economic structure of the Greater Region for over 150 years. The map traces the history of the iron and steel industry from 1900 to the present day, while the texts relating to the territories set out elements from earlier periods. As in the case of coal mining, the number of production sites has declined more or less continuously during the course of industrialisation and globalisation, while production reached its peak in the early 1970s.

Cross-border peri-urban public transport is primarily a reflection of daily migration between the labour markets of the different parts of the Greater Region. between the labour markets of the different parts of the Greater Region. Of the 196,000 commuters (2008), about 15% now use cross-border public transport, which has been steadily expanded in recent years. But 85% still use their car, which often offers time advantages for long connections, especially in the case of public transport transfers with changes. Although trains and buses are commonly used for different trips (shopping, excursions, etc.), the concentration of traffic hours usually observed at the beginning and end of the day suggests that day-trippers are the main users. The main purpose of the cross-border lines is to serve Luxembourg (where the labour market has developed considerably in recent decades) from the former industrial areas of Lorraine, Longwy and Thionville, Wallonia, the Trier region and Saarland.

The smallest unit shown covers an area of of 25 hectares. Until a few decades ago, it was generally assumed that human activities had little impact on the soil because of nature's capacity for regeneration. However, the practice of agriculture over the centuries has led to irreversible changes in some areas. In the recent past, the development of housing and the construction of transport routes has increasingly led to the sealing of the soil. It is only in recent decades that people have become aware of the need to monitor changes in land use. Amongst other things, there has been a growing desertification of certain regions, the rapid disappearance of forests, the increasing drying up of wetlands and the continuous expansion of urbanised areas along the coast.

Abstract: The key issue concerning shareholder transparency rules, and the related rules on acting in concert (Europe), or the voting group concept (U.S.) is enforcement. Rather than thinking about appropriate enforcement measures, jurisdictions such as the UK and Switzerland decided in favor of Economic Ownership Disclosure. The current debate in the U.S., on the European and national level of some European jurisdictions is moving in the same direction. This article examines a different option which is the better enforcement of existing transparency rules. In order to counter secret acquisition strategies, similar to antitrust leniency and “protected disclosure” (i.e. whistle blowing) rules, governments are best advised to assign a reward for disclosure. Under the reward model presented here, the initial stock price reaction reflects the value of the information previously hidden from the market. The first participant of a scheme who discloses the holdings of all scheme participants is to be assigned the difference between the price of the target’s voting shares ex ante and ex post disclosure, calculated on the basis of the participants' joint holdings of shares (Announcement Premium). Distinguishing between schemes based on the equity value of the parties involved (Equity Strategy) – commonly referred to as wolf packs - and schemes where an acquirer seeks to create a large stake based on derivatives (Service Strategy), assigning the Announcement Premium to the first entity disclosing the scheme’s holding and intentions is likely to counter Equity Strategies efficiently. The Service Strategy is countered effectively by granting the Announcement Premium to agents that act on behalf of the intermediaries (i.e. to bank employees). [less ▲]

A number of European initiatives aim to create a European educational space, including vocational training and higher education. Following the logic of difference, we ask whether, despite their different institutionalization, these two sectors in France and Germany react similarly to the Europe-wide Copenhagen and Bologna processes. We compare the relationship between vocational education and training (VET) and higher education (HE), contrasting a number of influential typologies. Analyzing the current situation, we ask whether these differences in postsecondary education and training systems continue to exist. [less ▲]

The growing inter-relatedness between EC and EU law with national criminal law can be well illustrated with the example of enforcement of EU law. Criminal law is one of the latest examples of increasing European integration within the perimeters of explicit competences of EU/EC law which additionally is driven ahead by what functionalist theories of European integration might refer to as a spill-over of approaches. Necessities of crossborder crime and criminal enforcement make cooperation necessary. The latter takes place to a certain degree on the basis of positive law established on the basis of the Treaties. It also takes place in the context of evolutionary development of what one might refer to as ‘administrative networks.’ [less ▲]

In 2008, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg had 238 service stations, of which 167 (almost three-quarters) were located in the immediate vicinity of the country's border. Luxembourg's relatively small surface area suggests that the service stations are all close to the border. However, there are disparities: in the interior of the country, the location of service stations depends for the most part on the geographical distribution of the population and the main transport network. The density of service stations is high in the region of Luxembourg City, the centre and main crossroads of the Grand Duchy where the A1, A3, A4 and A6 radial motorways converge, as well as in the densely populated areas of the south of the country, crossed from east to west by the A13. In the north of the country, however, where the population is lower and the transport infrastructure is still underdeveloped, there are fewer service stations. As the main road north of Ettelbruck is only a national road (N7), this region has no motorway access to neighbouring countries. [less ▲]

This paper considers a simple stochastic model of international trade with three countries. Two of the tree countries are in an economic union. Comparisons are made between equilibrium welfare for these two countries under fixed and flexible exchange rate regimes. Within the model it is shown that flexible exchange rate regimes generate greater welfare. However, we then consider comparisons of welfare when the two countries also engage in some international assistance in order to share risk. Such risksharing is limited by enforcement constraints of cross border assistance. It is shown that, when one takes into account risk-sharing and limited commitment, fixed exchange rate regimes associated with a currency area can dominate flexible exchange rate regimes, which reverses the standard result.

The Code of Good Administrative Behaviour has passed fairly unnoticed in academic research on the principle of good administration. However, it is an important source to understand the meaning of this principle and concept in European administrative law, since it encompasses some of its dimensions that tend to be overlooked by the case law of the European Courts and also by European law scholars. Furthermore, contrary to what recent developments let believe – namely, the fact that the Commission refuses to put forth a proposal for a European regulation that would make the provisions of the Code binding – the Code remains relevant to map possible legal developments regarding good administration. The article1 explains the reasons and meaning of the link between the Code and Article 41 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, analyses the complexity and uncertainty of the concept “good administration”, characterises its different legal and non-legal facets highlighting the interconnections between them. In addition, it demonstrates how these different layers are reflected in the Code, underlines the Code’s links with previous EU law developments, its added legal value and the functions it currently performs, considering also the different paths through which further legal, binding developments could derive from the Code.

Subject to natural variability, the weather conditions encountered over the days and seasons characterise the climate of a region. For obvious reasons of representativeness, the mathematical expression of the climate in terms of average, maximum or minimum values of various variables (precipitation, temperatures, etc.) must necessarily cover a whole range of conditions, which may be distinguished by very contrasting frequencies of occurrence.
