Dynamics of memory and identity in contemporary Europe by Eric Langenbacher( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The collapse of the Iron Curtain, the renationalization of eastern Europe, and the simultaneous eastward expansion of the European Union have all impacted the way the past is remembered in today's eastern Europe. At the same time, in recent years, the Europeanization of Holocaust memory and a growing sense of the need to stage a more "self-critical" memory has significantly changed the way in which western Europe commemorates and memorializes the past. The increasing dissatisfaction among scholars with the blanket, undifferentiated use of the term "collective memory" is evolving in new directions. This volume brings the tension into focus while addressing the state of memory theory itself."--Publisher's website

Between left and right : the 2009 Bundestag elections and the transformation of the Germany party system by Eric Langenbacher( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Germany remains a leader in Europe, as demonstrated by its influential role in the on-going policy challenges in response to the post 2008 financial and economic crises. Rarely does the composition of a national government matter as much as Germany's did following the 2009 Bundestag election. This volume, which brings together established and up-and coming academics from both sides of the Atlantic, delves into the dynamics and consequences surrounding this fateful election: How successful was Chancellor Angela Merkel's leadership of the Grand Coalition and what does her new partnership with the Free Democrats auger? In the face economic crisis, why did German voters empower a center-right market-liberal coalition? Why did the SPD, one of the oldest and most distinguished parties in the world self-destruct and what are the chances that it will recover? The chapters go beyond the contemporary situation and provide deeper analyses of the long-term decline of the catchall parties, structural changes in the party system, electoral behavior, the evolution of perceptions of gender in campaigns, and the use of new social media in German politics."--Publisher's website
The Merkel Republic : an appraisal( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chancellor Angela Merkel has dominated German and European politics for almost a decade. Her stellar reputation, sound political and economic management, and popularity inside of Germany resulted in one of the most decisive electoral victories for her conservative parties in postwar Germany--the country can rightfully be deemed the Merkel Republic. Bringing together German politics experts from both sides of the Atlantic, this volume addresses the campaign, results, and consequences of the 2013 Bundestag election. Chapters delve into a diverse array of themes, including immigrant-origin and women candidates, the fate of the small parties, and the prospects for the SPD, the new coalition partner, as well as more general structural trends like the Europeanization and cosmopolitanization of German politics"--Provided by publisher
Workers' Compensation Analysis and Reform: Measuring the Effectiveness of Tort Reform Through Analysis of Workers' Compensation by Joseph Kamau Christopher Bey( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates workers' compensation schemes in the United States. First and foremost, the work highlights the lack of literature serving as a critical analysis of workers' compensation from the perspective of the working class. This investigation comprises of three key components: a historical analysis, a legal analysis (analysis of statutory provisions, case law, and constitutional law), and a secondary empirical data analysis. In the historical analysis, this investigation examines the remarkable change in the labor force in the United States since the first workers' compensation laws were introduced in 1902. In the legal analysis, this work explores the statutory provisions and case law used to clarify ambiguous statutory provisions. This study primarily focuses on the effectiveness of workers' compensation, the adequacy of the benefits provided, and the goals and intent of the legislation. This investigation draws comparisons between various jurisdictions within the United States, primarily focusing on the 20 most populous states in the country. This investigation also uses a secondary empirical data analysis component in order to attempt to analyze the effectiveness of workers' compensation schemes and occupational safety and health programs with the statistical data available. From the findings of this analysis, this work provides the most important conclusions and recommendations for reforms
One Size Fits Some: The Case against the Unregulated Growth of Microcredit by Adam Vaught( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growth of microfinance over the past two decades has been nothing short of astounding. Fueled by a mixture of good intentions and the potential to earn profit the industry quickly became the development world's new silver bullet to end poverty as many microfinance institutions (MFIs) enjoyed annual growth rates that surpassed 100%. However a series of crises towards the end of the last decade have shaken the foundation of the industry and left many looking for a new way forward. This thesis argues that these crises were the result of credit-first policies which strapped borrowers with insurmountable debt resulting in widespread default. An analysis of the growth of India's SKS Microfinance and Bangladesh's Grameen Bank will be used as evidence to support the prioritizing of savings products before credit as a way to protect borrowers from over indebtedness and to protect MFIs from themselves. The thesis finishes by looking at regulations enacted by the government of Ecuador in 2007 as a means to coerce MFIs into a savings based model which sacrifices short term rapid growth for the long term stable variety

German `soft power': from the fall of the wall to the 2006 world cup by Juan Carlos Holguin( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the Second World War, and especially since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Germany has made an enormous effort to build international relations and external cooperation. To do this, it has used many strategies of soft power, attempting to distance itself from the negative stereotypes of its history. In this thesis, I will analyze the "German model of development" that has positioned the country in the new world order of the second half of the twentieth century as an economic power with a successful democratic system. This thesis will also examine the ways in which Germany influences different regions of the world, spreading its democratic, economic and cultural principles with the help of a strategic plan of cooperation that includes official and non-governmental organizations, foundations, schools, churches, and others, while developing a new tool of diplomatic relations that began in 2006: soccer

The dissonance of political will and the right for comprehensive sexual education in buenos aires, argentina by Kristin Anne Gutekunst( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis examined the history of the Argentine education system and identified a series of political actors with multifarious interests involved in both the creation and failed application of the ESI policy. This then explored the possible incentives and agreements that may have affected the political will of actors involved in the implementation process. It was then postulated that the ESI policy failures were heavily influenced by the lack of political will or ability, and that other compounding variables such as the disinclined education institution itself, was fixed within the political stalemate of ineffectual leadership while ensnarled in the gridlock of national and municipal policies

Participation, Coordination, Agreement ... Action? Evaluating the Multistakeholder Model in Internet Governance by Collin Michelle Kurre( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Multistakeholderism has emerged as a potential mechanism to address the interconnected complexity that defines many of today's most pressing policy challenges. The goal of this thesis is to better understand the relationship between effectiveness and legitimacy in the nascent multistakeholder model, taking internet governance -- one of the most frequently cited examples of multistakeholderism -- as a case study. Applying four criteria elaborated from central theories that have influenced the development of multistakeholderism, this thesis evaluates several internet organizations based on participation, coordination, agreement, and action, with a focus on key differences between technical and political multistakeholder processes. Based on this analysis, the thesis concludes with recommendations for improving the legitimacy and effectiveness of multistakeholder policy-development initiatives related to internet governance as well as other fields
