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 ▲]

Das Buch vermittelt theoretische Grundlagen und praxisnahe Kenntnisse zu wissenschaftlichen Umfragen. Mit Hilfe dieser Kenntnisse kann der Leser Umfragen sowohl kritisch beurteilen als auch Fragebögen selbst nach den gültigen wissenschaftlichen Standards erstellen. Damit wird dem in den letzten Jahren zunehmenden Problem mangelnder Gültigkeit und Zuverlässigkeit von Befragungsdaten entgegengewirkt. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf Hinweisen zur Formulierung von Fragen und zur Konstruktion von Fragebögen, daneben werden aber auch viele andere Probleme behandelt, wie z.B. Fragen des Forschungsdesigns oder der Planung und Durchführung der Feldarbeit. Neben postalischen, persönlichen und telefonischen Befragungen werden auch Online-, Mobile und Mixed-Mode-Befragungen erläutert. Das Buch schließt die Lücke zwischen allgemeinen Lehrbüchern zur empirischen Sozialforschung einerseits und speziellen Lehr- und Handbüchern zur Datenanalyse andererseits. [less ▲]

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.

"A contemporary history of Luxembourg in 70 chronicles" by Denis Scuto is a collection of 70 press chronicles, published from 2014 to 2019 in the Luxembourg newspaper Tageblatt. It is "public history" in the best sense of the word, because Denis Scuto as a professional historian intervenes directly in today's debates and enlightens them in a dazzling way by replacing them in the history of Luxembourg and Europe. It is a book aimed directly at the general public, which does not necessarily read scholarly works, but is interested in understanding the country in which it lives and works, with its indissolubly linked past and present. It is therefore a contemporary history because, over the course of the current debates commented by Denis Scuto, the essential elements of the construction of contemporary Luxembourg appear: the birth of the Grand Duchy as a nation-state, its hard learning of independence throughout the nineteenth century, political and social struggles, the consequences of the two world wars, its destiny as a country made of migratory flows, the upheaval of a rural country that became an industrial power and then a European and financial centre, etc. [less ▲]

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.

Comment justifier de faire produire effet aux jugements rendus par des tribunaux étrangers? La question est ancienne dans le monde de common law. Tant l’Angleterre que les Etats-Unis ont développé des théories originales fondant l’accueil des jugements étrangers et dessinant une partie du régime de cet accueil. Dans la tradition juridique continentale, la question du fondement de l’effet des jugements étrangers n’a en revanche guère été approfondie. Elle devrait pourtant être essentielle, en permettant soit d’expliquer les solutions retenues par le droit positif, soit de les rationaliser. Ce cours présente et critique les différentes théories et fondements existant en droit comparé. Certaines mettent en avant les intérêts privés des justiciables, à l’instar du droit à l’exécution des jugements promu par la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme. D’autres privilégient les intérêts des Etats, qu’ils soient purement économiques ou plus politiques. Enfin, le cours s’interroge sur le fondement de la circulation des jugements dans les systèmes fédéraux, en insistant plus particulièrement sur le principe de confiance mutuelle prévalant dans l’Union européenne.

Why drama of multilingualism? The book starts with a vignette on the (mis)understandings of the kindergarten situation around strawberries. By this vignette, I introduce different levels of power relations between children, parents and teachers around language use. I then use Nancy Hornberger’s (1989) Continua of Biliteracy model through which I broaden this vignette and describe the structure of the book: why I chose to deal with this subject, what is my approach, why I conducted the interviews and discussion with the experts and their students in the US and how I plan to integrate this into something novel worth reading. Through the interaction with the experts on the topic I had during the interviews I focus on several topics: the necessity of defining and theorising in a specific social context, power relations, language policy, linguistic creativity and criticality, support for multilingual identity, gap in research. I conclude by underlining the notion of whether there is more or less drama in this field and who cares about it. [less ▲]

Since the early years of telegraphy, modernity at large generated and has depended upon technologies of electrical/electronic communication and information circulation: from telephone, radio, and television to the internet. This volume reveals these connecting technologies’ geopolitical importance and their crucial relationships with culture, commerce, and communities. Also the authors critically examine their spatial dimensions and transnational implications – as material objects with particular qualities, as elements in institutional complexes, and as ‘vehicles’ carrying complex symbolic meanings. Through in-depth assessments of critical, as well as mundane, events in the history of communications and information, these analyses will significantly alter conventional perspectives both on communications and on modern European history.

The following report contains the results of the Luxembourgish Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study, which was conducted in the year 2014. The HBSC study is a cross-national survey study that collects data every four years in school classes across Europe, Asia and Canada. In Luxembourg, students from primary and secondary schools that teach according to the Luxembourgish curriculum were included in the study. This report contains the data of 7233 students aged 11 to 18 years old. The HBSC study inquires about a wide range of topics, including questions on subjective well-being, nutrition, physical activity, social relationships in- and outside of school, use of addictive substances and sexual behaviour. This report examines these topics mainly with regard to socio-demographic characteristics. With regards to gender, neither boys nor girls are at a clear disadvantage for the researched themes. The position of boys and girls depends on the theme, which means that for certain themes boys are at a disadvantage, whereas for other themes girls are at a disadvantage. Boys indicate higher rates of substance use (alcohol, tobacco and cannabis), higher rates of overweight and they watch more television than girls. However, girls report less physical activity, lower rates of breakfast consumption, more health complaints and lower life satisfaction compared to boys. For almost all the indicators examined, the 11-12-year-olds have the best scores and often the next group (13-14-year-olds) is already performing significantly worse. The only exception in this pattern was found for the variable of bullying: the older the students are, the less often they are victims of bullying. The age 12-13 is therefore considered a critical phase of life from a health perspective. Additionally, the social status of students is of relevance for their health. The large majority of indicators show that the higher the family affluence, the better the results reported by students. Students from the Fondamental are younger, and thus obtain better scores for the majority of indicators than the students from secondary schools. Within secondary schools, better scores are obtained by Secondaire classique students compared to Secondaire technique students. In the international comparison, Luxembourgish students are inconspicuous and often placed in the midfield with average scores. Compared to students in other countries, Luxembourgish students report to do more sports and they report fewer occasions of drunkenness in their life. However, Luxembourg obtained low scores for two indicators: Luxembourgish students have a high number of health complaints (e.g. pain, problems falling asleep, nervousness) and their life satisfaction is relatively low.

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.

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.

Attention plays a pivotal role in the experience of pain and its impact upon daily activities. Accordingly, research on the interplay between attention and pain has a long scientific history. Within this chapter, we discuss the theoretical frameworks that aim to explain the relationship between attention and pain. We argue for a motivational perspective on pain that highlights the critical role of cognitive, affective and contextual factors in explaining the interplay between attention and pain. To substantiate this argument, we provide an overview of available research addressing the bottom-up capture of attention by pain and the top-down modulation (both inhibition and facilitation) of attention for pain. We conclude this chapter with guidelines and suggestions for future research and discuss clinical implications of adopting a motivational perspective on pain. [less ▲]

While social change regarding trans(sexuality) has evolved within an expanding nexus of concepts, practices, regulations and institutions, this process has barely been analysed systematically. Against the background of legislative processes on gender recognition in a state formation shaped by heteronormative hegemony, this study traces how sexology, the law, federal politics and the trans movement interacted to generate or challenge concepts of trans(sexuality) from the mid-1960s to 2014 in the Federal Republic of Germany. The interdisciplinary study draws upon and contributes to debates in (trans)gender and queer studies, political science, sociology of law, sexology and the social movement. [less ▲]

In wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) domain, the decision support tools are nowadays necessary in order to efficiently process the large databases generated with on-line sensors. In this paper a cooperative decision support system (DSS) is presented. This DSS uses a KPI-based fuzzy logic engine to analyse the plant performance and identify the operational conditions that occur in the plants. Then, it associates the detected operational conditions with YouTube pages in which videos are uploaded to provide details and propose suggestions. The YouTube platform is then used to share and validate suggestions by means of the comment functions and the 'likes'. This approach is innovative, free of costs, and useful for plant managers that can rely on a user-friendly platform. [less ▲]

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).

Drawing on archives gathered in the six founding member states of the European Union, this book offers a new perspective on the "constitutionalization" of the European treaties, which was launched in the 1960s by the Court of Justice of the EU. By highlighting the professional and personal backgrounds of the first European judges and advocates general, its author studies the dynamics which prevailed within the institution during its "revolutionary" years and analyzes the Court’s relationship with the Member States of the European Communities. Through a detailed study of the selection process of the members of the Court, it also provides new answers to the question of whether governments tried to put an end to its bold jurisprudence.

Que faire des fous ? Les enfermer, les éloigner, les soigner ? Sur les bords de Seine comme ailleurs, les réponses ont varié dans l’histoire suivant la compréhension des pathologies mentales et la capacité d’y apporter des soins. Mais Paris s’est illustré singulièrement en trois circonstances. En 1795, tout d’abord, quand l’utopie de la libération des aliénés a offert un écho aux idéaux révolutionnaires. À la fin du XIXe siècle, ensuite, alors que la psychiatrie française attirait tous les regards… y compris celui du jeune Sigmund Freud qui vint suivre les enseignements du professeur Charcot à la Salpêtrière. Et c’est dans les années 1950 que furent découverts à l’hôpital Sainte-Anne les neuroleptiques, inaugurant une « révolution chimique » appelée à bouleverser durablement les approches thérapeutiques.

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.

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.

The European Account Preservation Order (EAPO) Regulation provides a protective measure for creditors wishing to freeze the bank account of their debtor, preventing the transferral or withdrawal of funds. Courts can issue freezing measures over bank accounts located in other member states, thereby establishing a new remedy for cross-border debt recovery in Europe. This book provides a detailed article-by-article commentary of the EAPO Regulation. It describes its legislative history and structure and carries out a critical analysis of its provisions and recitals, focusing on the practical implementation of the instrument. The commentary also provides additional focus on the interplay between the EAPO Regulation and the existing EU instruments and framework, and examines specific issues that the implementation of the Regulation might raise in member states. This is an important resource tool for practitioners, legal scholars and students interested in the theoretical and practical implications of the EAPO Regulation [less ▲]

La successione fra più imprese nell’esecuzione di un servizio organizzato determina conseguenze di rilievo sul piano dei rapporti di lavoro. Con importanza crescente rispetto alla disciplina legislativa, la contrattazione collettiva ha introdotto meccanismi identificabili con l’espressione «clausole di riassunzione», dirette ad assicurare, al ricorrere di talune circostanze, la continuità dell’impiego, la riassunzione o la priorità in future assunzioni per i lavoratori impiegati. Tali misure si risolvono in una limitazione a intensità variabile della libertà organizzativa dell’impresa che subentra nell’esecuzione del servizio. Questo libro si propone di rintracciare elementi utili a un inquadramento giuridico delle clausole di riassunzione previste dalla legge o contenute nei contratti collettivi, per saggiarne la compatibilità rispetto al quadro di regole e principi derivanti dall’interazione tra le fonti nazionali e il diritto dell’Unione Europea.

Les procédures d’insolvabilité présentent de plus en plus fréquemment une dimension européenne qui fait naître nombre de questions particulières. Quelles sont les juridictions compétentes pour ouvrir une procédure d’insolvabilité et quelle loi doivent-elles appliquer ?

The Greater Region Saar-Lor-Lux : Towards cross-border supraregionalisation ? Border areas are often portrayed as 'laboratories of European integration'. Beyond the discourses and symbols, what does the concept of cross-border region actually entail? By characterising the region as the construction of an identity, a territoriality and a governance system perpetuated over time, this publication identifies and questions the specificities of these processes in the cross-border context. It distinguishes between inter- and supraregional cooperation thus questioning a border area's capacity to develop an ad hoc cross-border cooperation whose raison d'être consists in strengthening the commitments pertaining to the border area's interests. This study is underpinned by a discourse analysis and a conceptualisation of cross-border territoriality and supraregional institution. In this respect, the significance of the EGTC (European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation), a European instrument providing a legal framework for cooperation, is analysed. This issue is explored in depth using the emblematic case of the Greater Region, a border area that launched in 2008 a long-term strategy to develop a 'cross-border polycentric metropolitan region'. Composed of Lorraine (France), Luxembourg, Wallonia (Belgium), Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland (Germany), the Greater Region constitutes one of the oldest border areas (1971) and presents the highest concentration of cross-border workers in Europe.

Die vorliegende Veröffentlichung ist ein Ergebnis dreier Forschungsprojekte, darunter hauptsächlich „Musikgeschichte in Luxemburg“. Es wurde in den Jahren 2012- 2015 unter der Leitung von Damien Sagrillo durchgeführt und von der Universität Luxemburg finanziert. Mit der staatlichen Unabhängigkeit Luxemburgs im 19. Jahrhundert und der Errichtung eines Bischofsitzes im Jahre 1870 hat sich, neben der weltlichen, zudem die Kirchenmusik in Luxemburg etabliert. Die zweite Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ist geprägt durch die kirchenmusikalische Reformbewegung des Cäcilianismus, der seinen Niederschlag auch in Luxemburg hauptsächlich in der Person Heinrich Oberhoffers fand. Im vorliegenden Band wird – ergänzend zu Band 1, in welchem der Briefwechsel zwischen Heinrich Oberhoffer und Franz Xaver Witt thematisiert wurde – der Briefwechsel mit Witt im Zusammenhang mit Luxemburg als Faksimile und in transkribierter Form erstmals veröffentlicht. Vorangestellt sind biographische Skizzen von Witt und den Briefautoren in Zusammenhang mit Luxemburg, sowie eine Einführung in den Cäcilianismus.

Jahrhunderts ist geprägt durch die kirchenmusikalische Reformbewegung des Cäcilianismus, der seinen Niederschlag auch in Luxemburg hauptsächlich in der Person Heinrich Oberhoffers fand. Im vorliegenden Band wird der Briefwechsel zwischen Oberhoffer und dem Hauptvertreter des Cäcilianismus Franz Xaver Witt als Faksimile und in transkribierter Form erstmals veröffentlicht. Vorangestellt sind biographische Skizzen von Witt und Oberhoffer sowie eine Einführung in den Cäcilianismus. Die Studie ist nicht nur für den Cäcilianismus luxemburgischer Prägung von Belang, sondern versteht sich außerdem als Anregung für weitere Forschungsanstrengungen im Zusammenhang mit katholischer Kirchenmusik zwischen 1850 und 1900.

Fondé au début du XIIIe siècle, le monastère de Sant'Apollinare de Milan fut l'un des centres de propagation les plus importants dans la Lombardie médievale de l'experience monastique féminine liée à la règle de François d'Assise. Le tabularium médiéval de Sant'Apollinare, à présent dispersé dans plusieurs archives et bibliothèques milanaises, préserve en outre des nombreux témoignages indirects du processus de transformation de l'appareil communal ambrosien vers les nouvelles formes de la Seigneurie, qui eut lieu à partir du milieu du XIIIe siècle. Dans ce livre, on propose l'édition critique de 109 chartes en latin provenant des anciennes archives de Sant'Apollinare - autant actes publics, surtout pontificaux et épiscopaux, que privés - remontant à la période entre 1204 et 1263, et actuellement conservées aux Archives de l'État de Milan.

The Conflict of Laws, also known as private international law, is a field of the greatest importance in an increasingly globalized world. The analysis of any legal issue, in a case involving more than one country, must start with an assessment of which court could potentially hear the case and which law it would apply. Contrary to other manuals or casebooks, which focus on the law of one jurisdiction, this innovative casebook offers a comparative treatment of the field. On each issue, materials from several jurisdictions are discussed and compared. The approach centers on comprehending the common principles of the field, but also highlights the fundamental differences. The goal is to train lawyers who not only will know the law of their own jurisdiction, but also will have an understanding of the key differences existing between the main models, and will thus be able to interact usefully with clients from other jurisdictions. This casebook systematically presents and compares the laws of four jurisdictions: the United States, the European Union, France and England (where left untouched by EU harmonization). It offers additional insight into rules applicable in China and Japan and also discusses remarkable solutions adopted in a wide range of jurisdictions such as Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Tunisia. All materials from non-English speaking jurisdictions have been translated into English. Key features of the casebook: • written by a leading authority in the field • carefully selected extracts from primary and secondary sources build a clear picture of the field • expert analytical commentary and questions set the extracts in context • US, EU, French and English perspectives integrated throughout the text to ensure maximum relevance and encourage students to make comparative assessments • numerous references to Chinese and Japanese solutions • leads students through the field from beginning to end • perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook.

La notion de frontière normative ambitionne de faciliter l’analyse de l’Union européenne en tant que système constitutionnel cohérent aussi bien en interne qu'en externe. En externe, ce système influence différemment les ordres juridiques tiers. L’analyse du cas norvégien, suisse, liechtensteinois, voire du Brexit, souligne l’importance de l’appropriation politique du fait juridique d’intégration. L’analyse institutionnelle des relations suggère que l’objet de délimitation de l'espace européen n’est plus la divergence normative mais la compétence législative. En interne, l’analyse tridimensionnelle du système constitutionnel permet la coexistence des ordres juridiques des Etats membres et de l'Union au sein d’un même système constitutionnel formé conformément à leurs identités constitutionnelles respectives. Les relations normatives se formalisent via une dialectique matérielle indépendamment de la hiérarchie interne. Cette analyse invite à affiner le concept de primauté. L’ambition ultime est d’alimenter la réflexion sur le réajustement de l’analyse constitutionnelle des relations entre ordres juridiques en tenant pleinement compte de l’existence de l'Union européenne.

Arbitration is the normal and preferred mode for resolving international commercial disputes. It presents an essential advantage over national courts by offering neutrality of adjudication, but is currently only available where both parties have consented to it. This innovative book proposes a fundamental rethink of this assumption and argues that arbitration should become the default mode of resolution in international commercial disputes. [less ▲]

Il titolo del libro separa in endiadi un’espressione unitaria – conversione del contratto di lavoro – tanto ricorrente nel linguaggio comune e nella prassi quanto ritenuta inaccoglibile sul piano giuridico. L’accostamento della tecnica della conversione del contratto alla disciplina dei rapporti di lavoro è volto a segnalare, almeno in ipotesi, una certa contrapposizione tra la fattispecie di cui all’art. 1424 c.c. e le norme del diritto del lavoro che implicano l’invalidazione del contratto originario e ne prospettano una proiezione futura. Sullo sfondo di tale meccanismo si registrano risultanze normative che negli anni recenti hanno mutato sensibilmente la fisionomia, l’estensione e gli equilibri interni della legislazione lavoristica. Tra queste, la progressiva individualizzazione del diritto del lavoro si è manifestata attraverso un tentativo di ridurre l’importanza della contrattazione collettiva e un ritorno al contratto individuale quale fonte di regolazione del rapporto di lavoro, fattori che hanno favorito l’accentuarsi di un’interazione più diretta fra legge e autonomia individuale. In misura crescente si sono così rilevati momenti di tensione tra uguaglianza e libertà, tra eteronomia e autonomia. Confrontandosi con tali mutamenti, il libro mira a raccogliere i diversi significati dell’espressione “conversione del contratto” impiegati nel diritto del lavoro per proporne una sistemazione ordinata, in linea con i caratteri tipici del rapporto fra norma invalidante e aspirazione ad assicurare ove possibile la continuità del rapporto di lavoro.

Multicultural societies are a phenomenon that is increasingly observed worldwide. This book brings together theoretical perspectives and empirical evidence on how culture contact is experienced at the individual level. At the heart of this book lies the question of how individuals living within a multicultural society experience the meeting of cultures. The studies were conducted in Luxembourg, a country where the foreign population has reached 45%. Luxembourg is a “natural laboratory” and provides an ideal context in which to study culture contact phenomena and to derive lessons for an increasingly globalized world. The empirical studies indicate a gap between multiculturalist ideas and specific forms of societal participation. The policy implications of the findings are discussed. These include a focus on highlighting similarities between cultures rather than differences, and addressing the issue of reciprocity – expectations of both, the receiving society as well as immigrants.
