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 )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 299 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."--BOOK JACKET

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

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 126 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
Strategies for combating right-wing extremism in Europe by Germany) Bertelsmann Stiftung (Gütersloh( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungRight-wing extremism is a phenomenon that can be found throughout Europe. All democratic societies are threatened by racist, anti-pluralistic and authoritarian ideas. Even though the so called "radical right" differs in character and ideology in the various European countries it strives to restrict civic and human rights as well as to change the constitutional structures that are based on the principles of democracy and liberty. Individual European countries deal with this challenge differently. The various policy approaches found in these countries are a good source for devel
Talent, competitiveness and migration : the Transatlantic Council on Migration by Bertelsmann Stiftung( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 122 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

Civic engagement as an educational goal( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hauptbeschreibung; 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. With the 2007 Carl Bertelsman Prize for Civic Engagement as an Educational Goal the Bertelsmann Stiftung presents approaches in diverse countries and discusses how they meet the challenge to promote civic engagement in schools and early childhood education and care. The report also gives a short overview of the status quo of civic engagement in Germany and suggests some reforms for the future
Delivering citizenship : the Transatlantic Council on Migration by Bertelsmann Stiftung( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 115 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
Violence, extremism and transformation by Bertelsmann Stiftung( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungBased on the results of the Bertelsmann Transformation Index 2006 (BTI), this study challenges widespread assumptions and stereotypes about the nature of political violence. It reminds us that religious extremism, while on the rise, accounts for only a small fracture of armed conflict in the world. Moreover, Western countries' preoccupation with transnational terrorism is misleading, as most political violence has been and remains local in its origin and its area of activity. Study results call for a factual and more differentiated assessment of the threats posed by militants
Improving the governance of international migration by Transatlantic Council on Migration( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and German and held by 95 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
Rethinking national identity in the age of migration by Transatlantic Council on Migration( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Greater mobility and migration have brought about unprecedented levels of diversity that are transforming communities across the Atlantic in fundamental ways, sparking uncertainty over who the "we" is in a society. As publics fear loss of their national identity and values, the need is greater than ever to reinforce the bonds that tie communities together. Yet, while a consensus may be emerging as to what has not worked well, little thought has been given to developing a new organizing principle for community cohesion. Such a vision needs to smooth divisions between immigration's "winners and losers," blunt extremism, and respond smartly to changing community and national identities. This volume examines the lessons that can be drawn from various approaches to immigrant integration and managing diversity in North America and Europe. The book delivers recommendations on what policymakers must do to build and reinforce inclusiveness given the realities on each side of the Atlantic. It offers insights into the next generation of policies that can (re)build inclusive societies and bring immigrants and natives together in pursuit of shared futures."--Page [4] of cover
Megatrends in global interaction by Bertelsmann Foundation (Ed.)( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We inhabit an increasingly interconnected world. Yet too often policymakers and advisers view each issue in a vacuum, focusing primarily on short-term impacts. All of us, policymakers, local and global communities, and individual citizens, must begin to consider how the major trends that shape our world are likely to develop and how they will intersect and influence one another. This volume explores and discusses correlations between these global trends, or megatrends: global governance, demographic change and migration, energy and natural resources, global security, biodiversity, and economic globalization. The book's primary focus is to provide a qualitative overview of the trends, and to analyze their intersections and interdependencies in the 21st century. It aims to help define some of the complex challenges and exciting opportunities shaping a world of sustainable economies and societies
