The limits of social cohesion : conflict and mediation in pluralist societies : a report of the Bertelsmann Foundation to the Club of Rome by Peter L Berger( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Normative conflicts center on fundamental disagreements over issues of public morality and the identity of a society. In thinking about normative conflicts on a global scale, two principal questions arise. First, are there common characteristics of such conflicts worldwide? Second, which institutions polarize such conflicts and which can serve to mediate them? This pathbreaking book, edited by renowned sociologist Peter Berger, examines both questions through findings gained from a study of normative conflicts in eleven societies located in different parts of the world and at different levels of economic development."--Jacket

Since the Union's enlargement to include 25 members, the issue has become even more pressing. This book analyzes approaches, strategies, and best practices from EU Member States that could contribute to a sustainable integration policy. It thus provides European, national, regional, and local decision-makers with instruments they can draw on in establishing a European framework for integration."--Jacket

Civic engagement as an educational goal( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A modern democratic society depends on the civic engagement of its citizens. Growing cultural pluralism and economic globalization have brought greater complexity to all areas of life. Young people in particular need diverse opportunities in order to enrich their experience, to learn about civic responsibility and to strengthen their communities. Furthermore, the topic is important since it shapes a path to overcome social inequalities in education and to use the untapped potential for - and declining interest in - political participation among youth."--BOOK JACKET
Talent, competitiveness and migration : the Transatlantic Council on Migration by Migration Policy Institute( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and German and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the global economic crisis ripples across the financial, political and social landscape, it is leaving its mark on international migration. The recession, hailed as the worst since the Great Depression, is impacting the scope and pace of international migration and its effects could deepen should the world economy worsen. Governments, businesses and individuals have all felt the damaging consequences of the global downturn, which has shaken confidence in established institutions. The crisis is driving some policymakers and analysts in Europe and North America to re-think their assumptions about labor migration. Yet while policymakers face exceptionally strong popular and political outcry to protect jobs at home, they face mid-term demographic challenges. These two opposing policy pressures require responses that will not only help ease the current economic crisis, but will also secure the long-term prosperity of these regions. This book reflects the effort of the Transatlantic Council on Migration to map how profound demographic change is likely to affect the size and character of global migration flows; and how governments can shape immigration policy in a world increasingly attuned to the hunt for talent. This volume is the second major product of the Council. The Council was launched in 2008 as a new initiative of the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) in Washington, DC. The Bertelsmann Stiftung and the European Policy Centre are the Council's policy partners
Improving the governance of international migration by Transatlantic Council on Migration( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and German and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungContemporary states are ambivalent about the global governance of migration: They desire more of it because they know they cannot reach their goals by acting alone, but they fear the necessary compromise on terms they may not be able to control and regarding an issue that is politically charged. Currently, there is no formal, coherent, multilateral institutional framework governing the global flow of migrants. While most actors agree that greater international cooperation on migration is needed, there has been no persuasive analysis of what form this would take or of what grea

Delivering citizenship : the Transatlantic Council on Migration by Bertelsmann Stiftung( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungThe 21st century promises to be an "Age of Mobility." More people around the globe, from an ever greater variety of backgrounds, are migrating. As Europe and North America absorb larger and more diverse inflows, many policymakers, commentators, and academics are questioning whether their societies can cope with the influx. Citizenship has emerged as one of the key policy battlegrounds for such concerns. Citizenship lies at the nexus of a host of social policy issues because it provides definitions of identity, belonging, and participation in key aspects of society, including t
Escaping the escape : toward solutions for the humanitarian migration crisis by Bertelsmann Stiftung (Gütersloh)( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conflict and war, but most of all overwhelming despair are driving massive numbers of mostly young people from the Middle East and North Africa, Central Africa, Ukraine and Central Asia to leave their homes for Europe in search of safety. What do they need most in order to lead their lives in peace and security? How can opportunities for a meaningful and secure future in their countries of origin be improved? How can the EU-acting in concert with its principles-support these people in their search for freedom, self determination and well-being? The book will contain a collection of essays, ideally from authors from different countries, and in particular, from the countries of origin of refugees. In these essays, authors are supposed to analyse the individual crisis regions at Europe's front door and make concrete and practice-oriented proposals to improve and/or change the situation there. --
The European republic : reflections on the political economy of a future constitution by Stefan Collignon( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of a broader project on the impact of European Monetary Union (EMU), carried out by the Bertelsmann Foundation in co-operation with the Center for Applied Policy Research at the University of Munich, this project, "The Consequences of the Euro," focuses on modeling a European political system able to live up to the changes as well as the risks involved in handling a common currency. Stefan Collignon reflects on the political economy of a future European constitution. He explores in particular the elusive economic and monetary policy mix that is called for within the developing framework of European integration, the issues of fiscal federalism and subsidiarity, and contrasting voluntary policy co-ordination. He also balances the demands of the Stability and Growth Pact with the embryonic consensual foundations of a European welfare function. Professor Collignon argues that collective action problems require a courageous step forward in creating coherent governance structures for the Union and that it has become essential to give European citizens their democratic right to political autonomy, taking the European "common concern" out of the sole hands of national governments.--Publisher description
What the world believes : analyses and commentary on the Religion Monitor 2008 by Martin Rieger( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and German and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungIn recent years, the subject of religion has undergone a dramatic renaissance and attracted considerable media attention. At the same time, however, knowledge about people's individual religiosity and the social characteristics and dynamics of religion has not grown considerably. Nonetheless, this knowledge has become especially important in a context of growing religious plurality and globalization, where interactions between societies with different cultural and religious backgrounds are increasing. To expand upon this knowledge, the Bertelsmann Stiftung-in cooperation with
