The transversal skills developed during academic mobility periods equip students to meet the expectations of recruiters as they embark on professional life (Brandenburg, 2014: 3). With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting many mobility programmes, is it still possible for students to acquire these skills? The very nature of academic mobility has changed, with most mobility periods becoming partly virtual because teaching is mainly provided online. In this article, drawing on the results of the RECTEC+ project, we aim to propose a method to identify the transversal skills developed by mobility students at the University of Luxembourg despite the impact of COVID-19.

In the summer of 2021, European governments removed most NPIs after experiencing prolonged second and third waves of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most countries failed to achieve immunization rates high enough to avoid resurgence of the virus. Public health strategies for autumn and winter 2021 have ranged from countries aiming at low incidence by re-introducing NPIs to accepting high incidence levels. However, such high incidence strategies almost certainly lead to the very consequences that they seek to avoid: restrictions that harm people and economies. At high incidence, the important pandemic containment measure ‘test-trace-isolate-support’ becomes inefficient. At that point, the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and its numerous harmful consequences can likely only be controlled through restrictions. We argue that all European countries need to pursue a low incidence strategy in a coordinated manner. Such an endeavour can only be successful if it is built on open communication and trust.

The map "The fiefs of the counts of Luxembourg in the 13th century" represents an attempt at a cartographic visualisation of the active fiefs of the counts of Luxembourg between 1200 and 1310. The map was created within the framework of the Master thesis "Lehnsrecht, Lehnspolitik und Lehnshof der Grafen von Luxemburg im 13.

Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic gave rise to a wave of adoption of soft law at EU level. As a regulatory tool, soft law is associated with greater efficiency, because it can be adopted without the necessity to respect complex procedural rules. In addition, it is not binding and it leaves it to its addressees to adapt according to their needs and possibilities. On the other hand, it raises questions about legitimacy, competences and control. The paper identifies the problematic aspects of EU soft law and explains why the current crisis represents an opportunity to address them. [less ▲]

The automated enrichment of mass-digitised document collections using techniques such as text mining is becoming increasingly popular. Enriched collections offer new opportunities for interface design to allow data-driven and visualisation-based search, exploration and interpretation. Most such interfaces integrate close and distant reading and represent semantic, spatial, social or temporal relations, but often lack contrastive views. Inspect and Compare (I\&C) contributes to the current state of the art in interface design for historical newspapers with highly versatile side-by-side comparisons of query results and curated article sets based on metadata and semantic enrichments. I\&C takes search queries and pre-curated article sets as inputs and allows comparisons based on the distributions of newspaper titles, publication dates and automatically generated enrichments, such as language, article types, topics and named entities. Contrastive views of such data reveal patterns, help humanities scholars to improve search strategies and to facilitate a critical assessment of the overall data quality. I\&C is part of the impresso interface for the exploration of digitised and semantically enriched historical newspapers. [less ▲]

Social bonds are important for individuals as bonds can have manifold positive impacts, such as emotional or practical support, and may be beneficial for individuals’ well-being or opportunities within society. However, spatial mobility and especially international migration have the potential to diversify and destabilize people’s social bonds and may thus positively or negatively influence the impacts of social bonds. To date, there is a lot of research focussing on how migration affects partnership or family bonds, but there is a lack of research that places friendships at the core of the analysis. This is surprising, as friendships are a fundamental part of people’s system of social bonds. They can be seen as a key factor of social support in coping with stressful situations in everyday life, such as finding a place within the new host society, and are directly related to individual life satisfaction. Therefore, it is important to reflect on how situations in migrants’ circle of friends change in the course of migration. Using data from the first wave of the German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study (GERPS), in this chapter, I address this issue by focussing on self-perceived changes in the circle of friends in the course of international migration. The specific focus here is on how individual personality characteristics such as risk attitude, locus of control, or emotional attachment to the host and the home country (in case of this article Germany) are related to a positive or negative perception of the developments of emigrants’ circles of friends shortly after migration. As research on friendships suggests that specific sociodemographic groups differ in how they manage their networks, this chapter also considers gender- and age-specific perspectives. Results show that individual perceptions of the developments within the circle of friends in course of migration differ. Concerning the factors related to a positive or a negative perception of the development, it becomes apparent that the different personality attributes play a significant role. Concerning differences across sociodemographic groups, I found only slight differences between men and women but stronger differences across age groups. [less ▲]

The main objective of the German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study (GERPS) is to establish a longitudinal data set that provides information on life trajectories of international migrants. However, a large amount of paradata were also collected in order to obtain meta-information on respondents’ survey participation. This auxiliary information can help to optimize data quality at all stages of the survey process. By continuing the existing discussion in the field of online surveys, this chapter pursues a twofold objective: it reflects device usage (mobile vs. computer) and elucidates determinants of device choice. In particular, it analyses whether selectivity effects due to respondent’s device choices bias the sample. Moreover, this chapter investigates differences in response time between devices to detect differences in response burden. The analysis of response burden differences by device is an important issue, since an increased device-specific response burden can be a predictor of actual and further panel dropouts. In both device-specific selectivity and survey burden, only slight differences were found between mobile and desktop devices. Using these data, the following paper addresses the need to analyse potential sources of survey error and provides evidence that GERPS data do not appear to contain noteworthy bias attributed to device usage.

This contribution deals with the daily cross-border practices of the inhabitants of Saarland, Lorraine, Luxembourg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Wallonia. It will deal with various aspects of unquestioned activities that are regularly carried out in a country other than the country of residence. The dimension of regular physical mobility in a transnational perspective will have to be integrated into this analysis insofar as cross-border everyday practices represent routine activities associated with a circular (pendular) movement that extends beyond neighbouring national territories. From this point of view, it should be emphasised that the Greater Region SaarLorLux is already experiencing pronounced cross-border mobility phenomena: mobility in the context of employment and in the context of residential migration.
