Dans Les Limites de l'interprétation (Paris, 1992) Umberto Ecco distinguait entre la recherche de l’intentio operis et la subordination du texte à l’intentio lectoris. Dans le premier cas, il s’agit d’ « in-terprétation », et dans le deuxième, Ecco parle d’ « utilisation des textes ». L’importance de cette thèse pour la pédagogie musicale est que l’intentio lectoris est à l’origine de tout apprentissage de la mu-sique. Transféré à la musique on pourrait parler d’intentio auditoris. Si les apprentis doivent être mo-tivés à changer l’intentio auditoris dans le sens de l’intentio operis, ils doivent profiter de la possibilité de réaliser le lien de leur propre intentionnalité avec la musique, c.à.d. qu’ils doivent tenter de changer l’objet. Ceci est une tâche primordiale qui revient aux professeurs de musique. L'importance des médias électroniques et des nouvelles technologies se situera au centre d’un projet de recherche d’envergure européenne de la FEMP (Forum of European Music Pedagogy, Forum Euro-péen de Pédagogie de Musique, Forum Europäische Musikpädagogik). Il revient à l’identité et au pro-fessionnalisme du professeur de musique de reconnaître la distance entre intentio auditoris et intentio operis (la dernière fut apprise lors de sa propre formation) et d’oeuvrer avec conviction en vue de réduire cette distance. En outre, il devra justifier et remettre en question à tout moment les objectifs de son action pédagogique pour soi-même et pour élèves. L’objectif de notre/nos communication(s) est de retracer l’identité des enseignants de musique sous un angle européen, notamment en distinguant entre les pays orientés plutôt vers la tradition alle-mande (le pédagogue-musicien) d’un côté et des pays préconisant le système d’origine francophone, voire anglo-saxonne (le musicien-enseignant), de l’autre. Repérer des pistes en vue d’un enrichisse-ment réciproque entre les différentes traditions sera un des buts du PR de la FEMP. [less ▲]

This research exploits the event of immigration to establish that institutions have a persistent effect on culture. It is argued that immigrants coming from corrupt countries, tend to overtrust the institutions at the host country. This inflated trust of immigrants is documented as the Great Expectations effect. This result is interesting and intriguing for several reasons. First, it highlights the persistent effect of institutions (at the origin country) on the cultural attitudes of immigrants. Interestingly, this effect is rather persistent and can be detected even to the second generation immigrants. Second, the analysis explores whether mean attitudes at the origin country have an effect on immigrants' attitude. The findings suggest that mean attitudes do not confer a statistically significant effect, whereas a horserace between origin institutions and origin culture suggests that it is the effect of institutions that prevails. Last, the analysis establishes that the inflated trust of immigrants affects their political attitudes. Immigrants coming from corrupt countries tend to be less interested in politics, to overtrust the host governments and to be less active in the political arena. In a globalized world where international immigration is rather extensive, pinning down the cultural differences across immigrants and thus the differences in their political attitudes is of an essence.

In this paper, I have merged the European Social Survey, World Values Survey and Eurostat (European Statistics Information) into SHARE (Survey of Health, Aging and Retirement in Europe) by regional geographical cell (NUTS2). By using this specific merged data set, I have evaluated the effect of household level religiosity and regional denomination heterogeneity (Catholic/Protestant ratio) on household risk preference. The finding is as follows : the higher the level of religious belief the lower the risk-taking incentive the households have; however, for regional denomination heterogeneity, the higher the regional Catholic/Protestant ratio, the more popular the local risk-taking incentive prevails.

This research theoretically and empirically advances the hypothesis that in early stages of development, land and climatic variability had a persistent beneficial effect on the advent of early statehood. A high degree of land and climatic diversity, and its association with potential gains from trade, accentuated the incentives to develop social, political and physical infrastructure that could facilitate interregional interaction. Hence, the emergence of states was expedited in more diverse geographical environments. To explore the hypotheses the analysis exploits exogenous sources of variation in a) the measure of land variability across countries, and b) climatic variability within countries over the period 500-1500 CE. The research establishes that i) the advent of statehood was expedited in regions characterized by a higher degree of variability in land and climatic conditions, ii) the effect of (land and climatic) variability on statehood operates partly through the advancement of technologies associated with trade, thus suggesting that it is the pivotal role of states in facilitating trade that ultimately contributed to their emergence and consolidation, and, iii) the effect of land variability on statehood dissipates over time.

A typical problem that international criminal tribunals face regarding criminal evidence is how to deliver justice and ascertain the truth with limited resources, time and mandate while respecting the requirements for a fair trial, the fundamental rights of the accused and the underlying objective of peace. In this respect, international criminal courts and tribunals are called to respect the normative rules established for a fair trial but also to consider the pragmatic objective of the court’s mandate and of the peace process. The case law developed by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) and the Special Court of Sierra Leone (SCSL) on granting a defendant’s request to obtain a witness testimony puts forth the debate on pragmatism and normativity in international criminal justice. The article addresses this issue, by reviewing the relevant ICTY, ICTR and SCSL jurisprudence on subpoenas’ requests. After establishing the definition of the different types of subpoenas and the legal implications that the distinctions bear, the article grapples with the different tests applied by the courts in an attempt to clarify the elaborate legal standards developed by these courts for issuing subpoenas ad testificandum. It then proceeds to examine how by adding more requirements and burden on the side of the defendant to prove the necessity of a subpoena, the international courts’ interpretation of the relevant rule may compromise the procedural fairness and the principle of equality of arms. The analysis shows that when the court had to adjudicate a subpoena request, it adapted the relevant legal standard by taking into consideration the object of the subpoena, the prospective witness and the court’s role and mandate. The recent ICC jurisprudence on the nature of witness summonses enhances the timeliness of this question. By closely examining the conditions laid down by the international criminal tribunals on issuing subpoenas, the article, sheds new light on the rarely acknowledged issue of the defendants’ right to obtain the attendance and examination of witnesses under the same conditions as witnesses against him in international criminal law.

This research advances the hypothesis that at the individual level "old people think old ideas" whereas at the aggregate level "old societies think new ideas." More precisely, we empirically establish the following three hypotheses: i) population aging has a hump-shaped effect on innovation, ii) old societies foster new ideas, and iii) the effect of population aging on innovation operates partly through a favorable attitude towards new ideas and creativity. Our results falsify the often encountered vision according to which old societies have old ideas. Moreover, they emphasize that innovation activity in aging societies is in part driven by cultural attitudes. [less ▲]

The world’s economic history has largely been a history of stagnation. The phase of sustained growth was only ignited in the second half of the 18th century by the Industrial Revolution in Britain. Since then, many countries have experienced long periods of sustained growth of per-capita income. At the same time, the world income distribution has become more and more unequal. Today per-capita incomes in the richest countries are approximately 30 times higher than in the poorest countries. The first part of this lecture takes a closer look at these past developments. In the second part, we venture a look forward. Among the questions we will address are the following: - Who needs economic growth? Does economic growth imply happiness? Is economic growth necessary to maintain our current standard of living? Does economic growth help the welfare state in the face of population aging and tight public budgets? - Can the process of sustained economic growth go on? Is “no-growth” or even “degrowth” a reasonable option? Does the concept of sustainable growth help to answer these questions? - What are the main challenges for and what are the main obstacles to growth today? [less ▲]

We develop a model where workers both choose their residential location (geographical space) and social interactions (social space). In equilibrium, we show under which condition the majority group resides close to the job center while the minority group lives far away from it. Even though the two populations are ex ante totally identical, we find that the majority group experiences a lower unemployment rate than the minority group and tends to socially interact more with other workers of its own group. Within each group, we demonstrate that workers residing farther away from the job center tend to search less for a job and are less likely to be employed. This model is thus able to explain why ethnic minorities are segregated in the urban and social space and why this leads to adverse labor-market outcomes in the absence of any discrimination against the minority group.

“Intellectual property shall be protected.” It is with these words that Art 17(2) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union elevates copyright to spheres where it hovers with other fundamental rights, amongst them the Freedom of expression. The relation between both, copyright and the freedom of expression is a difficult one, in which an exclusive right, which enables its right holder to exclude others from using his work meets and potentially collides with a right fundamental for our democratic society. This relationship has only recently been addressed in two cases, one in front of the European Court of Human rights (Ashby Donald v France) and one is pending in front of the Court of Justice of the European Union (Deckmyn v Vandersteen). The paper seeks to explore the relationship between both fundamental rights by analysing, first, the direction both European courts have taken with a view to positioning and balancing the interests under both rights; regard will be had to the emerging case-law on the relation between the EU Charter and the application an implementation of EU law. Second, in a practical application of the balancing act, relevant limitations and exceptions to copyright under Art 5 of the Information Society Directive will be scrutinized under the principles developed by Advocate-General Cruz Villalón in his opinion in the Deckmyn case. Special regard will be had throughout the paper to Freedom of Speech in a digital environment and its impact on the balance between copyright and the freedom of expression (and how this might differ to the realation between freedom of expression and copyright in the ‘real’ world). In this context the enabling and disabling functions of copyright and related rights against the background of the ‘ubiquity’ of copyright on the internet are discussed. [less ▲]

The aims of this paper are to look at the spatial patterns and to model internal migration in Luxembourg. Between 2010 and 2011, 17344 people or 3.7% of the total population moved from one municipality (commune) to another within Luxembourg, showing a very dynamic migratory system. Luxembourg City is a net migration looser in terms of internal migration: 3128 people moved out of Luxembourg and 1428 people moved in to the capital in the same period. This paper presents an innovative migration flow map while attempting to explain, for the first time in Luxembourg, the driving forces of migratory moves at a fine geographical scale, most of the literature being focussed on the strong international migration, thus hiding local residential processes. The data analysed refer to the migration flows between the 116 local authorities (communes) in Luxembourg and the 12-months migration question. We present models for out-migration, in-migration and migration flows. For the latter, we fit unconstrained gravity models using Poisson, and Negative Binomial (NB) regressions, and their Zero Inflated variants in order to account for overdispersion and the large number of zero flows. The empirical results are very interesting and show processes that differ from other countries. It appears that cultural and urban planning factors rather than labour force factors affect the decision to migrate within Luxembourg, which is plausible given the location, the size and the ethnic background of the population residing in Luxembourg.

This research establishes the persistent effect of institutions on culture exploiting the natural experiment of migration. It advances and empirically establishes the hypothesis that lower institutional quality at the origin country of a migrant is associated with higher trust towards host country institutions. The inflated trust of migrants is documented as the Great Expectations effect and is intriguing in three respects. First it contradicts with the empirically observed attitude of migrants with respect to interpersonal trust, where low quality of institutions is associated with lower interpersonal trust in both the host and the home country. Second, the inflated trust persists for both first and second generation migrants. Third, the effect of home institutions is stronger than the effect of mean trust at home confirming that institutions prevail over culture. The formation of Great Expectations has profound policy implications as it generates lower demand for regulation and reduced political participation. These findings further highlight the interplay between culture and institutions and the spillover effects of institutions operating via migration. [less ▲]

Taking into account the growing number of people exposed to environmental risks in the EU member countries and the budgetary constraints weighing on their respective social protection systems, an overall redesign of social policies is at stake. Against this background piecemeal measures are indeed not sufficient to cope with new challenges and paradigm shifts will be needed to deal with environmental problems and their consequences for affected populations. How can we take care of the people who are victims of these environmental risks? Who should finance this? Based on which principles (insurance-based or universal) and by which means? What kind of coverage could be provided by the social protection system (sickness insurance in particular) in different countries with equivalent institutions? How can we at the same time tackle the issue of ‘ecological inequalities’ taking into consideration that in complex environments presenting an accumulation of disadvantages (poor working and living conditions, smoking, alcoholism) it is not easy to isolate the effects of environmental damage as other variables have to be held constant. And how the responsibilities should be shared between stakeholders, social partners and the state when, for instance, people living close to the borders of different countries are affected by the same environmental-related problems? My presentation will therefore be organized as follows: first I will provide a brief overview of challenges (for instance assessing existing and potential damage to the health of affected populations) posed for social protection systems as far as environmental issues are concerned, then I will comment on some of the main key drivers of change I could identify in social policies related to the impact related to environmental problems and possible social policy responses will be explored.
