At the turn of the millennium, it was decided that Luxembourg should target four percent economic growth in order to best sustain existing quality of life standards. This target has largely been met as Luxembourg’s growth, which was mainly driven by the financial industry and a non-resident labour force, has averaged around five percent annually. Emerging out of a quasi-rural and industrial landscape, Luxembourg has come under the considerable growth pressures associated with a tertiary economy. It is thus facing particular challenges with respect to sustainable development. As a result, Luxembourg planning officials formulated spatially integrative sustainable development guidelines that postulate a polycentric growth model while targeting sufficient provision of housing, preventing sprawl, preserving green spaces, densifying growth poles, and enhancing public transportation. This research examines these strategies that are designed to manage growth and compares it with existing local land use practices. The small size of the Grand Duchy and narrow functional relationships between the capital city and the rest of the country justify treating the whole country as an integrated city region. The absence of a regional administrative level implies direct and strong policy dependencies between the national political and administrative levels. In this paper, particular attention is given to national policy mechanisms and their translation and implementation at the local level. The analysis reveals a number of challenges particularly with respect to enforcement and interpretation related to existing power relationships and different development visions adopted by the municipalities. Observations of the organization and capital flows of retail and commerce, housing and real estate development patterns, and the governance patterns that structure both illustrate how national smart growth policies of integrated smart growth can turn into grassroots sprawl or a governance of dispersal.

This paper presents progress achieved within the context of SUSTAINLUX (a research project funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche Luxembourg) and collaborative studies with the Worcester Polytechnic Institute.The research has aimed at critically examining the approach of sustainable development, in the context of Luxembourg’s urban and regional governance structures (Carr, Hesse, and Schulz 2010), that have transformed and rescaled (Brenner 1999) against tertiarization of the economy, and Europeanization of the political arena (Schulz 2009; Becker forthcoming) – processes that have had significant impact on the affordability of housing and infrastructure for mobility. To date, the research methods have included mapping the literature and actors relevant to the sustainable integrated development discourse in Luxembourg, performing interviews with practitioners in the field and exploring the role and limitations of this normative discourse in Luxembourg’s social spatial transformation (Carr 2011). Particular attention was paid to structures of decision-making and its relationship to the prevailing real estate market. In addition, comparative research was performed in collaboration with Prof. Krueger. This presentation will talk about the results and conceptualize them within the framework of policy mobility, as has been discussed in recent literature such as Ward (2006), Temenos and McCann (forthcoming), and González (2010). In this way, clear barriers to implementation to sustainable development goals can be identified. References Becker, Tom. forthcoming. “Europäisierung der Städtepolitik ?

Whereas reasons for having children, i.e. positive VOC, have been a central focus within the framework of the Value-of-Children approach, reasons for not having children, namely negative VOC, have been given less attention so far. Perceived negative aspects of parenthood may, however, be of particular importance for the individual decision of having children or not, and may be related to the actual quality of intergenerational relationships. The aim of the present study was therefore to focus explicitly on negative VOC and to examine in how far negative aspects of having children are related to further variables characterizing intergenerational relationships in three different cohorts (mothers of adolescents, mothers of small children and adolescents) living in western and eastern Germany as well as in Poland. Participants took part in the cross-cultural and interdisciplinary Value-of-Children study. The study design allowed taking into account not only generational/cohort and country effects, but also effects of social change. A comparison of the reasons for not having children (negative VOC) between the different subsamples showed that whereas roughly the same negative aspects were most prominent in all subsamples (with problems related to job being rated highest by all participants), young mothers from West Germany and mothers from Poland as well as adolescents from all three subsamples were overall more bothered about having children compared to old and young mothers from East Germany and old mothers from West Germany. Higher negative VOC went along with mothers’ reported ideal number of children or with the actual number of children in the German mother subsamples. Negative aspects of having children had also an impact on adolescents’ ideas about having children: Whereas in Germany, adolescents’ intention of having children (or not) in the future was related to the level of negative VOC, in Poland, apart from that also the intended number of future children was related to negative VOC.

I will be discussing the nucleation process in a system composed of mono-disperse hard spheres initially in an over-compressed fluid state. Molecular dynamics simulations are presented for the homogeneous system and the dynamics and structure of the forming nucleus including the corresponding nucleation rates are discussed. In comparison to the studied homogenous nucleation event we will extend this system and introduce a substrate to study its influence onto nucleation within the fluid. In this case the substrate is made up of the same type of spheres held fixed in space throughout the simulation process on a triangular lattice modeling a crystalline surface. In general heterogenous nucleation, due to surfaces, walls as well as confinement are of great importancein experiments of colloidal suspensionsbecause strong effects are observed. In our case the substrates influence is studied by varying the substrate lattice constant as well as the fluid density. We observe qualitatively different dynamical regimes that will be discussed in detail. [less ▲]

Luxembourg has an almost two century history of cross-border political economic interdependence, whether that was through the Zollverein and expansion of the railroads during the 19th century, the steel industry that remains largely intact, or the banking and related services sector that dominates the Luxembourgish economy today. Luxembourg has also cultivated deep cross-border connections through its role in the European Union, and establishment of itself as one of the centres for important EU institutions. These structures overlay its otherwise feudal and agricultural legacy. This has led to a political structure that some complain is non-transparent and undemocratic, but that others notice is horizontal, direct, and entails shorter power distances. It has also led to a demos whose membership is defined by the usual legal parameters of nationhood, but at the same time is inter-reliant on cross-border competencies and cycles of de- and reinvestment, as well as personal relations. These paths of governance are easily traced through the mobility of Luxembourg’s sustainable development policies. In so doing, it can be seen that the uncertain governance structure that operates simultaneously multi-scalar, cross-national, and informal, which poses many obstructions to the implementation of environmental policy and renders the normative of sustainable development, that permeates all levels of planning in Luxembourg, postpolitical.

Au Luxembourg, une recherche pluridisciplinaire a été réalisée auprès de 797 personnes victimes d’un accident vasculaire cérébral (AVC). Une enquête nationale a été menée comportant un volet épidémiologique effectué par le CRP-Santé, qui a rassemblé des données médico-administratives et des données cliniques issues des dossiers d’hospitalisation, et un volet de sociologie médicale par l’Université qui a interrogé 94 patients vivant au domicile, deux après la survenue de l’AVC, et leurs 62 aidants informels principaux. Des recommandations majeures de santé publique et de politiques sociales peuvent être formulées sur la nécessité de mettre en place : 1) un système de surveillance des AVC, indispensable pour orienter les politiques de santé en termes de promotion, prévention et intervention; 2) une filière de soins AVC plus visible, mieux structurée et coordonnée; 3) un suivi social et éducatif par un « gestionnaire des familles AVC » (patients, mais aussi et surtout aidants) et des aides financières pour développer un véritable soutien à domicile à moyen et long terme; 4) une prévention primaire en faveur des aidants que les souffrances physiques, psychiques et la faible qualité de vie sociale amènent à devenir une « population à risque » du système de santé, situation qui touche directement, ou sera susceptible de concerner dans un avenir proche, la plus grande partie d'entre nous.
