The European Union is a union under the rule of law and accordingly all exercise of public authority needs to conform with the principle of legality. The legal framework of the EU is, however, as much as that of any state or international organization, subject to change over time. That part of this legal framework specifically governing EU administration has been particularly dynamic. The central reason for this dynamism is to be found in the evolving nature of European integration, and in the changing requirements and conditions for implementing EU policies. The legal framework of administration has been both the subject of, and a response to, change in the ambient political and institutional environment. The EU, having started as an organization of six Member States focused on economic integration, has evolved into a Union of twenty-seven Member States now touching almost all elements of the exercise of public power in a modern society. The evolutionary development of the constitutional basis of EU law, with its many phases of Treaty reforms and change induced by case-law, finds its parallel in EU administrative law. European administrative law has in this process grown, changed, and indeed matured over time, and has emerged as an important, yet sometimes not well understood, factor which materially shapes policy in the EU and its achievement in reality. The rise of the importance of EU administrative law is itself attributable both to the specificities of European integration and to the general increase in the importance of administrative regulation in the past decades. On the one hand, the protection of the society against risks associated with private activity such as banking, food production, energy production and distribution, transport, or activities threatening to the environment, to name just a few, and the achievement of a balance between their benefits and dangers have become increasingly important subjects of attention. On the other hand, the provision of services and infrastructure necessary to ensure and protect basic standards of living such as pensions, health care, access to water, energy supply and telecommunications services have been the subject of mixed regimes, often still having a strong public service element, but increasingly left to private provision subject to various levels of market regulation. Both kinds of motivation for regulatory measures and their implementation by appropriate authorities have added to, and substantially changed, the broad character of public administration in Europe in recent decades. Such changes have occurred not just on a national, that is, Member State level, but also, pre-eminently, on the level of the European Community and now Union. Indeed, many of the changes have themselves been triggered on the European level as integral or at least adjuvant elements of the establishment of the European internal market. The role, then, of administrative law and administrative activity on the European level is extensive and important. Rules and principles governing the exercise of administrative functions, the organization of the institutions and bodies exercising these functions, and applicable procedures are the essence of EU administrative law. These are the subject of this book. There are, it must be observed, many perspectives from which one can view, analyse and comprehend both administration and administrative law. Three models or perspectives appear to us to be particularly helpful: administration and administrative law may be usefully considered from functional, organizational, and procedural standpoints. The functional aspect of administration refers to the totality of the tasks of administration, no matter who undertakes them and how they are carried out. The organizational perspective emphasises the organization and structure of the institutions, bodies, and actors engaged in undertaking such tasks. Finally, a procedural understanding of administration observes the processes which link the various actors and authorities in the performance of administrative functions. None of these models standing alone provides a fully rounded understanding or conceptualisation of the subject matter of the book. A proper analysis of EU administrative law cannot view it from only one of these perspectives. Taken together, however, these three standpoints do offer a comprehensive perception, giving the subject a more multi-dimensional shape, and thus allowing a more tractable presentation of what is very complex material. For this reason, we offer a discussion of each of these three perspectives — the functional, organizational, and procedural aspects of European Union administration and the associated legal framework — by way of introduction. The three models are, of course, closely interlinked and in reality scarcely separable but, for analytical and presentational clarity, they are here addressed separately. [less ▲]

Depuis les référendums sur le feu Traité constitutionnel européen en 2005 et suite au déclenchement de la crise de la dette souveraine d’Etats membres de la zone euro en 2009, la confiance accordée par les citoyens à l’Union européenne et aux gouvernements qui la composent s’affaiblit. Le scrutin pour désigner le nouveau Parlement européen en mai 2014 a confirmé ce « réalignement électoral » au profit de forces politiques qui sont classées et/ou qui se considèrent parfois elles-mêmes comme relevant du « populisme ». Ce rapport de force inédit nous oblige à traiter « à nouveaux frais » de l’identité des populismes et de leurs rapports à la démocratie d’autant plus qu’ils aspirent désormais, s’ils ne l’ont pas déjà fait, à exercer des fonctions gouvernementales.

L’égalité est un des principes fondamentaux de toutes les démocraties modernes. Bien plus, il n’existe aucune théorie politique qui ne se réfère directement ou indirectement à l’égalité ou à l’inégalité à un point tel qu’on puisse dire que, dans la plupart des cas, du moins depuis les Révolutions américaine et française, la justice d’un ordre social et politique se traduit par l’égalité ou l’inégalité entre ses membres. D’où la controverse qui entoure son usage dans les contextes sociaux et politiques. C’est à juste titre qu’on a pu dire que la justice représente un “essentially contested concepts”.1 Néanmoins, même en politique, ce ne sont pas toutes les occurrences ou emploi du terme égalité ou inégalité qui devraient donner lieu à des contestations.

Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Luxembourg consist of an annotated book of currently valid legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims in Luxembourg. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text will be preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The legal texts will be published in the original language while the annotations and supporting material will be in English. The focus of the book is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Luxembourg, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life. It's a part of a project will cover the 28 member states of the European Union (including Croatia), Norway and Switzerland plus the European Union and the European Court of Justice. [less ▲]

The 50th anniversary of the death in 1967 of the famous music teacher, ethnomusicologist and composer Zoltán Kodály reminded us that another renowned music pedagogue, Leo Kestenberg (1882-1962), was born in the same year as Kodály. As such, the joint Kodály Kestenberg Conference provided a welcome opportunity not only to address aspects of music pedagogical and biographical research which had hitherto received a limited amount of attention, but also to highlight a number of key moments in history, and the resulting impact these had had on music pedagogy. The significant level of international interest which music educators showed in the Kodály Kestenberg Conference fulfilled the organisers' desire to create a forum for the free exchange ideas. It also enabled participants to review our commonalities and differences and to look beyond our individual national developments and evaluate the methods and concepts of two significant personalities in the history of musical education in the first half of the 20th century. The sheer diversity of historical and current topics in music education research both inside and outside of Europe, not only reflects the fact that in the 21st century, music education research has established and profiled itself in a wide range of sub-disciplines in addition to revealing new fields of inter-disciplinary research. The effectiveness of reforms initiated and implemented by Kodály and Kestenberg extend to the present day and continue to influence discussions around the future perspectives of music education. This is illustrated by the example of formal and informal learning in the field of elementary music pedagogy. The "Century of the Child" proclaimed in 1900 by the Swedish reform pedagogue Ellen Key (1849–1926) has left its mark on music education through reformers such as Kodály and Kestenberg into the 21st century. This conference book contains articles which are subdivided in five sub-categories: (1) The function of Music Education, (2) The Historical Era of Kodály and Kestenberg, (3) Learning and Instruction, (4) Assessment Technologies in Music Education and (5) Effects of Music Training. The contributors come from six different countries namely, Austria, England, Germany, Hungary, Israel and Luxembourg. The editors would like to record their thanks to both: (1) the Pedagogical Faculty of the John von Neumann University, Kecskemét and the dean Dr. Fülöp Tamás and the vice-dean Dr. Sági Norberta for hosting the conference, (2) the International Leo Kestenberg Society. The editors also acknowledge that this research is supported by EFOP-3.6.1- 16-2016-00006 “The development and enhancement of the research potential at John von Neumann University” project. The Project is supported by the Hungarian Government and co-financed by the European Social Fund.

This book - which features a foreword by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, and a Preface by Professor Harold James (Princeton Unviersity) -examines the European vocation and achievements of Pierre Werner (1913–2002),former Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, unanimously recognized as one of the architects of the Economic and Monetary Union. The author makes extensive use of Pierre Werner’s previously unpublished archives belonging to the Werner family, opened for the first time for research purposes. The book analyses the Werner Report, negotiations within the Werner Committee, the emergence of the Committee’s views on EMU, their political commitment to a European currency, the similarities and differences between their ideas, their personal networks, the influence of the states they represented, their theoretical and methodological input and their contribution to the political consensus. Chapters shed new light on various aspects of the European integration process and also on the role of Luxembourg and its European policy. In addition, the author has carried out a series of original interviews with Luxembourg and European figures who share their memories and thoughts concerning Pierre Werner, his achievements and his views on the European integration process, and also other topics such as the Economic and Monetary Union and Luxembourg‘s European policy. This book will be of interest and value to researchers, EU policy makers and students in the fields of political economy, political science, economic history and history of economic thought.

Bien que le Web ait seulement trente ans, son patrimoine est déjà pléthorique : la fondation Internet Archive a collecté plus de 345 milliards de pages web depuis 1996. Cette fondation, qui fut l’un des pionniers de l’archivage du Web, n’est pas seule à préserver et collecter aujourd’hui ce patrimoine dit « nativement numérique ». Au cours des années 2000, plusieurs pays ont en effet lancé de tels archivages, souvent confiés aux bibliothèques nationales, et cette tendance ne cesse de s’affirmer depuis. Ces initiatives introduisent des ruptures : dans la notion même d’archive, mais aussi dans les pratiques des professionnels des bibliothèques et du patrimoine, tout comme dans celles des chercheurs. Cet ouvrage se propose d’initier le lecteur aux enjeux humains et techniques de l’archivage de la Toile, de la collecte à l’analyse en passant par la création et le partage de corpus ou encore le cadre législatif. Il étudie de manière pragmatique cet archivage, en essayant de rendre palpable à la fois sa fabrique (technique, institutionnelle, juridique), la relation que ses acteurs entretiennent avec les publics et les évolutions qu’ont connues les collectes en une vingtaine d’années. Ce livre s’intéresse également à la manière dont les archives du Web, outre leur rôle patrimonial, peuvent aujourd’hui être exploitées par différents acteurs, notamment à des fins de recherche.

Time is a crucial dimension in the application of any law. In tax law, however, where an environment characterized by rapid change on the national, European, and international levels complicates the provision of accurate legal advice, timing is particularly sensitive. This book is the first to analyse the relationship between time and three key areas of tax: treaties, EU law, and constitutional law issues, such as legal certainty and individual rights. The issues arising from the interplay of these various areas are analysed from a both academic and practical angle, providing important insights independent of the concrete national framework within which tax rules are applied.

Krieg, Krisen und Umbrüche, aber auch Fortschrittsglaube, Hoffnungen und Kontinuitäten kennzeichnen Europa im Zeitalter der Weltkriege. In der deutsch-belgischen Grenzregion führen Grenzverschiebungen zu Orientierungslosigkeit, aber auch Beharrung. Eupen-Malmedy ist zu jener Zeit Randregion zwischen zwei Vaterländern, die in ihm keinen Zwischenraum erkennen wollen. Identitätskonflikte polarisieren und radikalisieren die politische Auseinandersetzung. Krieg wird erlebbar. Gleichzeitig verändern Massenmedien wie Zeitungen, Radio oder das Kino die Sicht der Menschen auf die Welt. Neue Maschinen und Werkstoffe, Traktoren und Lkw erhöhen die Produktivität und Mobilität der Welt. Telefon und Wanderbewegungen sind äußere Zeichen einer Moderne, die in der kleinen Grenzregion Eupen-Malmedy gleichzeitig so nah und so fern sein kann. Auch aus dem Blickwinkel des situativen Opportunismus, der den Einzelnen je nach Lebenssituation zwischen Anpassung oder Verweigerung schwanken lässt, zeichnen die 19 Autoren ein anderes Bild dieser bewegten Zeit nach, die für das Verständnis des heutigen Ostbelgiens grundlegend ist.

I introduce the book starting by my own personal experience of growing up in a mixed family and being myself in a mixed marriage. I describe the structure of the book by building up my own method: how I chose this topic, who were the people I interviewed, how (interviews, stories, and objects) and why was the single-but-critical instances analysis important. I focus on the richness of the interaction I had with the interviewees. I underlie the phenomenological stories of struggles, trust and vulnerability. The chapters resolve around power relations, expressing affection, in-depth communication, child rearing, conflict resolution strategies, empathy, female identity, future planning, the role of humor, the biggest cultural and linguistic challenges and opportunities. The focus is on the phenomenon captured in single-but-critical instances in participants' stories. I conclude by describing what significance culture has in intimate intercultural relationships.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the individual liability of senior managers has been rediscovered as an important element in effectively countering economic and financial crime. Mainstream enforcement practices against white-collar crime in recent years, focusing mostly on the legal entity or the low- and mid-level employees, have been largely unsuccessful. The punishment of large corporations for economic offences has indeed been confronted with the “too big to jail” dilemma, and with concerns for the negative spillovers that their collapse may entail for employees, shareholders and consumers. The individual “rogue employee”, on the other hand, may be fungible and easily sacrificed as a scapegoat. The recent debate has therefore brought back to centre-stage the individual liability of senior managers, which is essential to close any “responsibility gap”. But are the ordinary rules of criminal law fit and adequate to hold senior managers accountable? This volume, presenting the findings of a study led by the University of Luxembourg and co-financed by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), aims to contribute to this debate with a special focus on the liability of senior managers for the commission of offences against the financial interests of the EU. It compares the criminal liability regimes for senior managers in five Member States (Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands and Poland) and delivers a set of policy recommendations for establishing the liability of senior managers in compliance with the general principles of criminal law and respect for fundamental rights.

Der vorliegende Band versteht sich als Beitrag zu den internationalen Modernismus-Studien. Zum ersten Mal werden Spannungen, Interaktionen und Friktionen in der kulturellen Welt sowie die Koexistenz von Tradition und Innovation im Luxemburger Kontext in einem interdisziplinären Sammelband mit einander in Verbindung gebracht. Die Beiträge thematisieren Gleichzeitigkeiten und Interaktionen zwischen den verschiedenen Kunstfeldern Architektur, Kunst und Literatur auf. Mit Beiträgen in vier Sprachen, Luxemburgisch, Deutsch, Französisch und Englisch, spiegelt der Band die mehrsprachige Realität des Luxemburger Forschungskontextes wieder und richtet sich sowohl an ein Luxemburger als auch an ein internationales Publikum. Diskussionen zur Natur der Moderne in spezifischen Kontexten bewegen sich häufig innerhalb der Dualität ›modern vs. traditionell‹, wobei die Tradition oft mit Rückständigkeit assoziiert wird. Werke, die in einem Kontext als innovativ und schrankenbrechend gelten, werden in anderen Zusammenhängen als verstaubt und epigonal angesehen. Wenn wir die Relevanz und Qualität der Luxemburger Literatur und Kunst vorrangig anhand ihrer Korrespondenzen zu ausländischen Meisterwerken messen, so laufen wir notwendigerweise das Risiko sie zu unterschätzen und misszuverstehen. Anliegen dieses Bandes ist deshalb radikal innovative Werke des Luxemburger Kontextes sichtbar zu machen, sowie auch Traditionen als Formen der Innovation zu verstehen. Einige der Fragen, die die Beiträger dieses Bandes aufwerfen: wann geschieht die Moderne in Luxemburg? Wie, und in Beziehung wozu, wird sie definiert? Wer definiert sie, mit welchem Anliegen und in welchem Kontext? Die Beiträger bezeugen verschiedene Herangehensweisen an die Thematik: die Artikel reichen von longue durée Studien, zu close readings von Stil, Themen und Formen, zu Untersuchungen des formativen Einflusses kultureller Faktoren.

Vorgestellt wird eine empirische Studie, die mit Rekurs auf neoinstitutionalistische Theoriekonzepte untersucht, anhand welcher Strategien Fachkräfte in der Offenen Jugendarbeit die meist von staatlicher Seite definierten Qualitätskriterien und -regeln in ihrem Praxisalltag aufgreifen und ob bzw. inwiefern sie diese nach professionellen Anforderungen reinterpretieren und transformieren [less ▲]

Cet ouvrage s’inscrit dans le cadre d’une histoire jeune et très contemporaine, celle d’Internet, du Web et des cultures numériques et explore leur fabrique dans les années 1990 en France. Cette recherche, à la croisée de l’histoire des médias, de l’histoire de l’innovation, et de l’histoire sociale et culturelle, reflète les apports d’une approche française de l’histoire d’Internet et du Web. Matérialité et infrastructures, temporalités et trajectoires, espaces et territoires traversent les cinq chapitres du livre. Ils apportent des arguments au choix d’une analyse nationale d’un phénomène pourtant transnational, en s’intéressant à l’attribution des noms de domaine et à la francophonie au sein de la Toile, à la transition entre la culture Minitel et celle du Web, ou encore à la place d’un État qui passe du volontarisme et du monopole des télécommunications à la dérégulation et aux imaginaires des autoroutes puis de la société de l’information. Explorant les pratiques, difficultés, tâtonnements de la période et le tournant grand public du Web, on croise au cours de cette navigation des informaticiens, des entrepreneurs, des politiques, des passionnés de science-fiction, des militants, autant d’acteurs qui se confrontent, débattent, co-construisent. Ils vous invitent à les suivre dans un chantier entre « cathédrale et bazar », pour reprendre Eric Raymond, dont l’exotisme mais aussi l’actualité des débats ne cessent de nous frapper. Bienvenue dans le Cyberespace des années 1990 ! [less ▲]

In recent years, half of the newly constructed building floor areas in the world are built in China, thus it is important and interesting to know the Chinese design codes for buildings and compare them with Eurocodes, which are one of the most advanced design codes in the world. Funded by “Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships” the project “AVEC BNT” was started in 2016 to compare the design codes mainly related to concrete structures and composite structures. This script is the main intellectual outputs from this project. It comprises codes background analysis, direct codes terms comparison and design examples. The script covers most of the design topics related to design of concrete structures and composite structure for building design as well as the design basics such as safety concept. It is a common achievements of students, researchers and professors from different universities and instructions of different countries. The main work is done at University of Luxembourg especially for the design basics part and the design of composite structure of steel and concrete. For design of concrete structure part, University of Applied Science Trier (Germany) and Thei (Hong Kong, China) has offered great helps and contributed many parts. To conform with the goals of Erasmus+ to promote the cooperation and mobility with the EU’ partner countries and to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy, the script involves many student’s work. The students could participate in the project through either joining special courses offered by the project partners, as well as, doing a student project, bachelor or master thesis related to this project. Further more the students participated within the transnational teaching activity weeks. With the guidance, the students were able to learn and compare difference design methods by EuroCodes and Chinese design codes and to cooperate with their colleges from different countries. To achieve good quality of the final script, which can be used as additional information and learn material for other students and engineers to learn about Eurocodes and Chinese codes for structural design. Also the work was edited into a uniform formatting to make it constant in style and easy to read. Although, besides the contribution from students, many other topics were added to make the documents complete, it was not possible to cover every topic in the codes due to the limited time and resources. Thus, topics such as fire design, seismic design, bridge design, pre-stressed structures and others are not within the scope of the work. The scripts are divided into 7 sub chapters and many small topics. Each topic has two main documents for Eurocodes and Chinese codes. The main documents have same list of contents, which allows readers to compare the design aspects from the two codes systems easily side by side. Besides that, each topic is also provided with a general summary of comparison, which points out the most important difference and general overview of the design. In the documents not only the content of the codes but also the background information is discussed, which will help students and engineers to understand not only the difference of design but also the reasons behind it.

This book reflects more than three decades of research on Cellular Automata (CA), and nearly a decade of work on the application of CA to model biological strings, which forms the foundation of 'A New Kind of Computational Biology' pioneered by the start-up, CARLBio. After a brief introduction on Cellular Automata (CA) theory and functional biology, it reports on the modeling of basic biological strings with CA, starting with the basic nucleotides leading to codon and anti-codon CA models. It derives a more involved CA model of DNA, RNA, the entire translation process for amino acid formation and the evolution of protein to its unique structure and function. In subsequent chapters the interaction of Proteins with other bio-molecules is also modeled. The only prior knowledge assumed necessary is an undergraduate knowledge of computer programming and biology. [less ▲]

After World War II, as Europe floundered economically, British Prime Minister Clement Attlee looked to disengage Britain from some of its broad international obligations and increase American support for its new foreign agenda. One place he sought to do so was in Greece, which was in the midst of a civil war. Through an in-depth study of Anglo-American diplomacy in Greece from 1946-50, Spero Simeon Z. Paravantes reveals how the relationship between Britain and the US developed in this formative period. He argues that, in many ways, Britain used the fast-escalating tensions of (what would become) the Cold War to direct and manipulate US policy in Greece, encouraging the Americans to take a more active role and (essentially) take Britain's place in the region. In the process, he sheds fresh light onto how the American experience in Greece contributed to the formulation of the Truman Doctrine, the infamous NSC-68 document and the ultimate birth of the Cold War. Drawing on a wide range of sources from Britain, the US, Greece and across the Balkans, Paravantes has produced the first book to focus on this crucial period in such close detail, and reveals the ways in which various foreign and domestic concerns coincided at a pivotal moment of twentieth century history. This book is essential reading for all scholars looking to gain fresh insight into post-WWII Greece, the Anglo-American alliance and the complex origins of the Cold War. [less ▲]

The biggest problem for a shallow foundation, just as for any other type of foundation, is a failure due to an overestimation of the bearing capacity. This means that the correct prediction of the bearing capacity of the foundation is often the most important part of the design of a civil structure. That is why the publication by Prandtl in 1920 about the hardness of a plastic body, was a major step in solving the bearing capacity of shallow foundations, although it is well possible that he never realised this, because his solution was not made for civil engineering purposes, but for mechanical purposes. Over the last 100 years, a lot of extensions have been made, for example with inclination factors and shape factors. Also many laboratory experiments have been done and numerical calculations have been made. Some even try to extrapolate the failure mechanism for shallow foundations to the failure mechanism around the tip of a pile. All this scientific work leads back to the first publication by Ludwig Prandtl in 1920. This book, “100 Years of Prandtl’s Wedge”, is intended for all those who are interested in these fundamentals of foundation engineering and their history. The Appendices include a copy of Prandtl’s Über die Härte plastischer Körper and of Reissner’s publication of 1924, Zum Erddruckproblem. [less ▲]

This book is about how risk, energy and governance are intertwined in the development of the nuclear industry in India and its relationship with the Indian public. It provides a rare insider-view of how the nuclear establishment thinks about risk and contrasts that with public understandings of nuclear risk. Through that, the book presents a more nuanced picture of why nuclear energy is considered a rational choice in spite of the risks; the ambiguities in both expert and public risk perceptions; and the internal reflexivities that have emerged within the nuclear establishment as a result of the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster which are not displayed in the public discourse. The insights in this book are not unique to India and similar observations can easily be made in the global nuclear industry. Reflecting on what this means for risk governance in practice, the book proposes a toolkit that practitioners in the nuclear industry can use in public engagement, risk communication and deliberation at various stages of decision-making.

This book examines contemporary educational research and its governance, addressing key questions via a multidisciplinary theoretical framework of comparative institutional analysis with original data and applying multiple methods. The authors explore and explain important changes in the governance of educational research and the contents of scholarship in education and related disciplines across Europe since the 1990s. This volume synthesizes findings from a multi-year comparative research project, including in-depth empirical case studies of three distinct educational research cultures evolving in Germany, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The authors reconstruct and compare changing conceptualizations of educational research, embedded in increasingly internationalized contexts of research, and examine shifts in its governance, including patterns of funding, publication, and evaluation. They examine the producers of European educational research and the distinct role of the European Union in constructing a European Educational Research Area, in establishing cross-border networks, and in (re)shaping educational research agendas. Through innovative empirical analysis of programs of research on various levels and education researchers’ collaborations in scientific networks, they provide insights into (supra)national dynamics in education-related scholarship. Theory-guided content analysis of research projects funded by leading national funding agencies and by the most highly developed supranational research funding instrument – the EU Framework Programme – enables the authors to embed findings on Germany, the United Kingdom, and Norway in a broader European perspective.

This volume analyzes sustainability-related innovations in the building sector and discusses how regional contexts articulate transition trajectories toward green building. It presents ‘biographies’ of drivers and processes of green building innovation in four case studies: Brisbane (AUS), Freiburg (GER), Luxembourg (LU), and Vancouver (CA). Two of them are relatively well known for their initiatives to mitigate climate change – particularly in the building sector, whereas the other two have only recently become more active in promoting green building. The volume places emphasis on development paths, learning processes, and innovations. The focus of the case studies is not restricted to purely technological aspects but also integrates regulatory, procedural, institutional, and other processes and routines and their influence on the variations of the building sector. The diversity of the selected case studies offer the reader the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of how sustainability developments have unfolded in different city regions. Case study-specific catalogues of transition paths provide insights to inform policy debates and planning processes. The catalogues identify crucial innovations (technological, regulatory, etc.) and explain the factors and circumstances that have led to their success and broader acceptance in Freiburg, Vancouver, Luxembourg, and Brisbane. With the help of a number of micro case studies within each of the four city regions, the case studies also offer ground for comparison and identification of differences. The book represents the outcome of the GreenRegio project, which stands for ‘Green building in regional strategies for sustainability: multi-actor governance and innovative building technologies in Europe, Australia, and Canada.’ GreenRegio was a 3-year CORE-INTER research project funded by the National Research Fund Luxembourg (FNR) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

This book offers new perspectives on Luxembourg history after 1940 focusing on lived experiences on the one hand and representations of gender in various media, on the other. It contains 27 articles. Some authors explore the significance of gender in politics, education and the arts (music, literature and film). Others investigate gender stereotypes in school books, advertisement, television and magazines. The book presents gender identities that transcend the male/female binary, yet shows that the latter remains hegemonial in many domains. [less ▲]

The question of which European or international institution should exercise public authority is a highly contested one. This new collection offers an innovative approach to answering this vexed question. It argues that by viewing public authority as relative, it allows for greater understanding of both its allocation and its legitimacy. Furthermore, it argues that relations between actors should reflect the comparative analysis of the legitimacy assets that each actor can bring into governance processes. Put succinctly, the volume illustrates that public authority is relative between actors and relative to specific legitimacy assets. Drawing on the expertise of leading scholars in the field, it offers a thought-provoking and rigorous analysis of the long debated question of who should do what in European and international law.

L'objectif de cet ouvrage sera de mettre au jour et en perspective les conditions de vie des patients pris en charge par les institutions psychiatriques belges pendant l'occupation de 1914-1918.00Derrière l'image consensuelle d?une petite Belgique unie dans l?adversité du premier conflit mondial, se dessinent des réalités bien complexes. Un des angles morts de ces années de guerre réside dans le sort des patients psychiatriques. Internés dans des grandes structures, tributaires des rations officielles, ceux-ci sont touchés par une surmortalité hors norme. Sans que cela n'émeuve grand monde? L?ouvrage est consacré à l'analyse de ce processus de fragilisation, encore très peu étudié. Des chapitres thématiques alternent avec l'évocation d'une certaine Élise qui a vécu ces événements de l?intérieur. [less ▲]
