Since 1978, economic reform and opening-up in the People’s Republic of China have dramatically reoriented the previous planned economy towards the free market, generating an increasingly dynamic economy. The exodus of the rural labour force from the countryside to the industries of the cities significantly sustained the process of industrialization and economic reform. The rapid economic growth did not, however, coincide with appropriate social developments and has not yet led to a commensurate recognition and extension of socio-economic, civil and political rights. This dichotomy is reflected in the maintenance of the hukou (household registration) system, which limits the mobility of the population discriminating between citizens depending on their hukou status. This contribution will explore the evolution of the Chinese hukou system and its human rights implications. It will consider China’s human rights approach in relation to the management of internal migration and the recent proposals to reform the hukou system. Specific human rights concerns will be underscored with regard to the right of freedom of movement and residence within the territory of a State, which is inexorably intertwined with many other fundamental human rights. Unearthing the far-reaching and transversal human rights impact of the hukou system will unveil the overarching principle of equality and non-discrimination as the ultimate benchmark of protection for Chinese internal migrants. A holistic human rights approach to the recently propounded institutional changes is crucial to uphold China’s economic and social stability as well as to better safeguard its founding principle of equality.

In preparation for the operations of the ALTIUS mission, research is carried out to assess the accuracy of the SGP4 orbital propagator in predicting stellar occultation events. The quantification of the accuracy and its consequent improvement will enable reliable measurement planning and, therefore, maximize the number of measurements. To this end, predictions are made for the timing of occultations for the GOMOS instrument on-board the ENVISAT, which are then compared to actual occultation occurrences. It is found that the error is substantial but follows a trend that can be interpolated. This enables devising a method for highly accurate predictions given a sufficient number of data points. Statistically significant results for the accuracy of the propagator and a calibration method are presented. Recommendations for a measurement planning procedure of ALTIUS are formulated. [less ▲]

We predict the existence of high frequency modes in the interference pattern of two condensates made of fermionic-atom dimers. These modes, which result from fermion exchanges between condensates, constitute a striking signature of the dimer composite nature. From the 2-coboson spatial correlation function, that we derive analytically, and the Shiva diagrams that visualize many-body effects specific to composite bosons, we identify the physical origin of these high frequency modes and determine the conditions to see them experimentally by using bound fermionic-atom pairs trapped on optical lattice sites. The dimer granularity which appears in these modes comes from Pauli blocking that prevents two dimers to be located at the same lattice site. [less ▲]

Venu à la chanson sous l'Empire, Pierre-Jean de Béranger est consacré suite à son succès dans les goguettes – lieu d'une parole engagée et opposée aux pouvoirs en place – comme le « chansonnier du peuple ». Il n'en est pas moins prisé du public bourgeois, qui lit ses chansons comme de la poésie, véritable tour de force, qu’il accomplit en appariant en des termes uniques les vers recherchés du Caveau, société littéraire et épicurienne, au message politique de la chanson de goguette. Le présent article cherchera à déployer les modalités de la représentation par le chansonnier des pouvoirs d'Ancien Régime, mobilisés comme les symboles d'un arbitraire anachronique pour mieux mettre en garde l'opinion contre les dangers de la réaction cléricale et nobiliaire qui a cours dès les premières années de la Restauration.

Figure de proue de l’opposition libérale sous le Premier Empire, Germaine de Staël se voit très tôt ostracisée par Napoléon, qui l’éloigne de Paris dès 1803, avant de lui donner l’ordre, en 1810, de quitter la France. La correspondance de l’écrivaine la voit d’emblée aux prises avec une difficulté nouvelle : celle de dire l’exil, ineffable par excellence. Souffrant de sa réclusion à Coppet, elle finit par déjouer la vigilance des agents du régime en 1812 pour entreprendre un périple qui la voit traverser l’Autriche, la Russie et la Suède afin de gagner l’Angleterre, terre de liberté. Libre enfin de prendre la plume, elle entame durant ce voyage un manuscrit, lieu d’une parole singulière sur l’exil, tant s’y noue un lien inédit entre le sort du collectif, opprimé par le joug impérial, et la singularité d’une destinée – celle d’une proscrite qui devait faire de son exil une opportunité sans pareille pour élargir son propos et son rayonnement aux dimensions de l’Europe.

Dans son "Histoire de la littérature française" (1936), Albert Thibaudet évoque Germaine de Staël comme « le Napoléon de la vie des salons ». Forte de son ascendant dans les salons, dont le sien fait figure d’épicentre de la vie intellectuelle, l’écrivaine devient bientôt le centre d’un groupe résolument cosmopolite, salon d’un genre nouveau la suivant « partout où elle se trouve » : le Groupe de Coppet. Comment les écrits de Germaine de Staël reflètent-ils son souci permanent du cosmopolitisme ? C’est ce que nous examinerons au gré d’un parcours dans l’oeuvre staëlien, habité par une curiosité cosmopolite faisant de l’écrivaine une véritable citoyenne du monde. [less ▲]

We propose an analytical procedure to fully solve a two-level system coupled to phonons. Instead of using the common formulation in terms of linear and quadratic system-phonon couplings, we introduce different phonons depending on the system electronic level. We use this approach to recover known results for the linear-coupling limit in a simple way. More importantly, we derive results for the quadratic coupling induced by a phonon frequency change, a problem considered up to now as not analytically solvable. [less ▲]

Characterizing the work statistics of driven complex quantum systems is generally challenging because of the exponential growth with the system size of the number of transitions involved between different energy levels. We consider the quantum work distribution associated with the driving of chaotic quantum systems described by random matrix Hamiltonians and characterize exactly the work statistics associated with a sudden quench for arbitrary temperature and system size. Knowledge of the work statistics yields the Loschmidt echo dynamics of an entangled state between two copies of the system of interest, the thermofield double state. This echo dynamics is dictated by the spectral form factor. We discuss its relation to frame potentials and its use to assess information scrambling. [less ▲]

That tradition plays a role in family business is a long-acknowledged but often self-evident notion in family business research. As a result, the explanatory potential of tradition is oriented towards its function as a resource for enabling organizational performance or its role in aiding stability and change within family business settings, has been overshadowed. Drawing from a reading of selected works in sociology, history and moral philosophy, this paper addresses this limitation by offering a theoretical reflection on the notion of tradition. These readings provide a way of departing from the common view of tradition as unitary, static and fixed towards a conceptualization that views tradition as both multi-layered and multi-faceted—constituting an unfolding process that is continuously being received and enacted in family firms. This theoretical paper contributes to the family business literature by strengthening the conceptual foundation of the notion of tradition by advocating tradition as a concept through which the past and future is immanent in the present. From this, a future agenda for research is outlined. [less ▲]

We study the ultimate limits to the decoherence rate associated with dephasing processes. Fluctuating chaotic quantum systems are shown to exhibit extreme decoherence, with a rate that scales exponentially with the particle number, thus exceeding the polynomial dependence of systems with fluctuating k-body interactions. Our findings suggest the use of quantum chaotic systems as a natural test bed for spontaneous wave function collapse models. We further discuss the implications on the decoherence of AdS/CFT black holes resulting from the unitarity loss associated with energy dephasing. [less ▲]

Abstract: Although current literature informs that both growth intention and innovative strategies determine venture growth, we remain with an important, yet unresolved theoretical and empirical question: is innovation the reason for growth, is intention the reason for growth or is growth the reason for innovation and changing growth intention? To untangle this question, about the gaps between cause(s) and effect(s) we undertake a data analysis on a final sample size of 20,472 young firms. We tested three types of innovation types: product, process and organizational innovation; and measured growth through sales revenue growth. Our results show that product innovation and organizational innovation affect sales revenues growth, while process innovation does not. Further, our results show that each type of innovation influences growth intention, and mediating effects of innovation occur. [less ▲]
