Strategic Rebellion: Ethnic Conflict in FYR Macedonia and the Balkans
Since the end of the Cold War, the consolidation of peace and security in south-eastern Europe has been one of the most complex and troublesome issues facing the international community. The sequence of conflicts in the Balkans has resulted in serious loss of life, economic collapse, and a number of controversial interventions, leading contemporary scholars to reconsider old perceptions about violent ethnic conflict. Drawing on a wealth of theoretical and empirical sources, this book tackles some of the prevailing questions on the root causes and management of ethnic conflict. Under what conditions do ethnic minorities become violent? How credible are the theories of relative deprivation and greed in explaining the outbreak of conflict? Is the use of coercive diplomacy a superior alternative to direct military forms of intervention? This book provides an analytical account of the socio-economic roots of ethnic conflict, the opportunities for violent mobilization and the success of strategic coercion in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and it also examines related developments in Kosovo and the Balkans.

A Social Market Economy and European Economic Monetary Union
Faced with the complexity of the current crisis experienced in a new manner by western countries within the globalisation process, this book provides a significant contribution both to an understanding of the mechanisms at the basis of these events and in proposing prospects for its positive evolution. The study investigates the new stage in the European integration process involving a transition from monetary union to economic union. The history of monetary unification is analysed from an economic and constitutional point of view and in the perspective of a new European social order, on the basis of the social market economy. An analogous approach is applied to the new stage in the integration process, the economic union. Three basic principles are analysed: zero inflation, zero deficit and zero debt as preconditions of development. A social market economy is the starting point for addressing these issues. The study ends with an analysis of the Atlantic dimension of a social market economy.

Electric Worlds / Mondes electriques: Creations, Circulations, Tensions, Transitions (19th-21st C.)
What interpretation(s) do today's historians make of electrification? Electrification is a process which began almost a hundred and fifty years ago but which more than one billion men and women still do not have access to. This book displays the social diversity of the electric worlds and of the approaches to their history. It updates the historical knowledge and shows the renewal of the historiography in both its themes and its approaches. Four questions about the passage to the electrical age are raised: which innovations or combination of innovations made this passage a reality? According to which networks and appropriation? Evolving thanks to which tensions and alliances? And resulting in which transition and accumulation? Quel(s) regard(s) les historiens d'aujourd'hui portent-ils sur l'electrification, processus engage il y a pres de cent cinquante ans mais auquel plus d'un milliard d'hommes et de femmes restent encore etrangers ? Le present volume rend compte de la diversite des mondes sociaux electriques et des manieres d'enqueter sur leur histoire. Il actualise les connaissances et temoigne du renouvellement de l'historiographie, dans ses objets et ses approches. Quatre points d'interrogation sur le basculement des societes dans l'age electrique jalonnent le volume : moyennant quelles creations ou combinaisons creatrices ? En vertu de quelles circulations et appropriations ? Selon quelles tensions et alliances ? Et produisant quelles transitions et accumulations ?

Towards a Resilient Eurozone: Economic, Monetary and Fiscal Policies
This book examines the Eurozone crisis and the possibility of fiscal and political union in Europe, with contributions from some of the most respected experts on these topics. The book explains the complex, multidimensional crises in competitiveness, fiscal matters, banking and politics. During the crisis Germany has been criticized for misjudging the causes, focusing too much on fiscal deficits and insisting that the solution is fiscal consolidation and austerity. For many, especially those inspired by Keynesian economics, Germany has been seen as pushing the whole continent into a depression. By misjudging the causes of the crisis, insisting on widespread austerity, constraining the European central Bank (ECB) in its role of Lender of Last Resort for the sovereigns, rejecting the mutualization of Eurozone debt and providing financial help in small amounts and too late, Germany is perceived to be responsible for the possible break-up of the Eurozone. The aim of this book is to analyse whether this description, one that is shared by numerous policymakers, academics, pundits and opinion leaders, means that there is a lack of resilience in the Eurozone's economic, monetary and fiscal policies.

Business Improvement Districts: Erfolgreicher Politikimport aus den USA?
Business Improvement Districts bieten einen neuartigen Ansatz zur Starkung gewachsener Geschaftsbereiche, der die spezifschen Schwachen der in Deutschland bislang genutzten Instrumente uberwindet. Mittlerweile haben sechs Bundeslander entsprechende BID-Gesetze verabschiedet und es gibt mehr als 25 BIDs in Deutschland. Die BID-Idee stammt ursprunglich aus Nordamerika und ist ein geradezu idealtypisches Beispiel fur die US-amerikanische Grundhaltung, sich selbst zu helfen, statt nach dem Staat zu rufen. Angesichts dieses Gegensatzes im Staatsverstandnis sowie weiterer gesellschaftlicher und oekonomischer Unterschiede zwischen den beiden Landern stellt sich die Frage: Warum konnten BIDs erfolgreich nach Deutschland importiert werden? Dazu werden im ersten Schritt zunachst die soziooekonomischen Rahmenbedingungen in den USA und Deutschland und die Einbettung von BIDs in ihrem jeweiligen Kontext analysiert. Aus dem Varieties of Capitalism -Ansatz wird dazu ein Vergleichsrahmen entwickelt. Im zweiten Schritt wird dieser mit Ansatzen des Politiktransfers verschrankt, um daraus Thesen ableiten zu koennen, die sich auch zur Erklarung des Transfers anderer Instrumente eignen. Die Arbeit liefert ausserdem erstmals einen UEberblick uber US-amerikanische BIDs und eine ausfuhrliche Darstellung des ersten deutschen BIDs in Hamburg.

Economies of Salvation: Adam Smith and Hegel
This book challenges the notion of the separation between economics and theology. It explores relationships between the disciplines through the concept of salvation, focusing on the work of Adam Smith and G.W.F. Hegel. They wrote as the disciplinary boundaries between economics and theology were taking shape, and remain important figures in contemporary discussions. Illuminating the theological foundations of the economic ideas of these two main thinkers, this book enriches our understanding of issues related to salvation such as: sympathy and recognition; poverty and the state; the invisible hand and the cunning of reason; evil and scarcity and eschatology. Moreover, the book contributes to a broader understanding of salvation and provides a model for future dialogue between economists and theologians by extending the frontiers of this unexplored field of research.

Economic Terms and Beyond: Capitalising on the Wealth of Notions: How Researchers in Specialised Varieties of English Can Benefit from Focusing on Terms
This book, which is aimed at researchers in specialised varieties of English, provides an illustration of how linguists can use terms, i.e. the expression of concepts in specialised fields, as entry points to explore any specialised domain, whether academic or professional, and to get acquainted with its history, its culture, and the evolution of the ideas that have nurtured it. Choosing the field of economics as an example, the author approaches terms from a diachronic, descriptive and contextual perspective, focusing on neonyms, metaphorical, ambiguous or indeterminate terms, as well as interface terms likely to underscore the evolving character of the domain. The analysis points out the role of terms as milestones highlighting key discoveries that have shaped scientific fields; terms can also be considered as barometers of the evolution of knowledge in a specific field and of a changing social environment. Whoever thought terms were only interesting for their definitions or for translation purposes will no doubt be surprised at the insights that can be gained from considering them from a different angle and for other purposes.

Winning Through Boundaries Innovation: Communities of Boundaries Generate Convergence
At present, many companies consider knowledge the most important element and the benchmark for maintaining an enduring competitive advantage. The process of strategically acquiring both new boundaries knowledge and convergence knowledge to generate boundaries innovation becomes an important element in acquiring dynamic organizational capability. This is essential for rapidly establishing a company's market position in new markets and technologies. This book discusses from a micro-viewpoint different strategies for companies' sustainable generation of boundaries innovation through the creation of both types of knowledge. It focuses on strategic management activities centered on innovation processes (incremental innovation and radical innovation) in a company. In the future, the knowledge convergence processes practiced by individuals, groups and organizations inside and outside the company will form the basis of dynamic innovation activities. These will continually create new boundaries knowledge and convergence knowledge, as well as the organizational capability for supporting these. The knowledge convergence firm this book proposes is a new corporate model that achieves sustainable boundaries knowledge by promoting creative, productive friction among people, and between and amongst communities. It does this by implementing knowledge convergence processes at diverse boundaries within and outside the company.

Beyond Self: Ethical and Spiritual Dimensions of Economics
This book addresses ethical and spiritual issues in economics. The central idea advanced in the book is that the extreme focus on the self by economic actors leads to the destruction of both material and non-material values. The assumptions of self-interest in behavior represent the core of mainstream economics today. From this perspective, the welfare of economic agents depends on their own consumption; their goal is to maximize their own welfare; and their choice is guided by the pursuit of their own goals. Throughout the book the author argues that self-interest-based actions and policies have a detrimental impact on nature, future generations, and society at large. If we want to survive and flourish in the material world we have to transcend the self and embrace wholeness. This value shift requires enormous changes in economics, politics and social life, but there may not be any other option in light of the current state of ecological degradation and human suffering.

Scientific diasporas as development partners: Skilled migrants from Colombia, India and South Africa in Switzerland: empirical evidence and policy responses- Preface by Jean-Baptiste Meyer
Over the last two decades, globalisation has accelerated international migration flows, particularly of skilled labour. Yet increasing migration by skilled workers from developing countries ( brain drain ) has raised serious concerns internationally about the adverse development impact on their countries of origin. This book, however, highlights the positive aspects of skilled labour migration as scientific diasporas are playing a growing role in the transfer of technology, skills and knowledge ( brain gain ) to their home countries. This is a very significant development in a globalised world where science, technology and knowledge can trigger economic and social transformations. The book presents solid empirical evidence of the contributions scientific diasporas make to their countries of origin, based on primary surveys of skilled migrants from Colombia, India and South Africa employed in Switzerland, a major destination country. The findings lead to a better understanding of the motives for migration, the profile of the scientific diaspora communities in Switzerland, and the varied ways in which they help their home countries. The book makes a significant contribution to the international policy debate and dialogue on migration and development. In particular, it shows how to leverage the potential of scientific diasporas as agents of home country development, by identifying good practices and offering specific recommendations for the countries of origin and of destination.

The Two Pillars of the Market: A Paradigm for Dialogue between Theology and Economics
Where is our economy heading? Have we lost something valuable in the human quest for efficiency and perpetual growth? What human qualities are being eroded as we rely on the modern market mechanism to coordinate our daily lives? This book poses a theological challenge to contemporary economic life through a re-discovery of the historical roots of the theological covenant in society. The author places the covenant in contrast with the contract, exploring the distinction between the two concepts, their significance and their interaction in the economic market. The result is a new proposal - the `Two Pillars' paradigm - that challenges the fundamentals of modern economics and promotes the idea of a balanced market which allows for genuine human relationships, freedom and economic justice. The author illustrates the practical use of the paradigm through the example of long-term employment arrangements, and applies it as a basis for dialogue with scholars ranging from Adam Smith to modern-day economists.

The Global Currencies Conundrum
This book discusses the emergence of a multi-polar currency system. With the US Dollar's hegemony as global reserve currency in question, it examines the role of the Federal Reserve in its decline, the emergence of the Euro in a multi-polar currency system and the Chinese influence in this most important policy arena. China's concerns about its US Dollar reserves are being amplified by the low returns of some of its investments in the United States. Today's reserve currency system effectively results in China lending to the US at very low interest rates. China needs to diversify out of the Dollar and it is this monetary policy that will fundamentally change the global currency scenario. China has been supportive of the Euro since its creation and is also lending support to the IMF's special drawing rights. At the same time, Chinese policy targets the internationalisation of the Renminbi and with that the creation of a multi-polar monetary order.

Des ingenieurs pour un monde nouveau: Histoire des enseignements electrotechniques (Europe, Ameriques) - XIXe-XXe siecle
A partir des annees 1880, l'electricite est progressivement devenue une technologie centrale, qui va procurer des biens et assurer des services nouveaux, bouleversant ainsi la production industrielle, l'economie et les pratiques sociales et culturelles. De confidentiel, son usage ne cessera de s'etendre, devenant massif et planetaire, et aujourd'hui indispensable jusqu'aux details de la vie quotidienne. Pour fonder et deployer un systeme de production, de transport et de distribution efficaces de l'electricite dans tous les pays, pour concevoir, fabriquer et diffuser les machines, outils et objets divers fonctionnant par ce moyen, en somme pour former un monde nouveau, il faut former un corps de techniciens specialises : ce seront les ingenieurs electriciens, pour lesquels seront elabores et mis en uvre des cursus dedies. Cet ouvrage retrace la naissance et la croissance de ces formations, a partir de la fin du XIXe siecle, en Europe et sur le continent americain, et leur role dans le developpement des differents Etats. Issu des travaux d'un colloque international tenu a Prague, il rassemble les contributions de 28 historiens portant sur 15 pays.

Tiananmen redux: The hard truth about the expanded neoliberal world order
This book contends that the massacre of civilians in Beijing on June Fourth 1989 was a pivotal rupture in both Chinese and world history. If not for that day, China's socioeconomic, political and cultural landscape would not have undergone the kind of dramatic transformation that has made China rich but unequal, open but hyper-nationalist, moralistic but immoral and unhappy. Through the lens of global history the book revisits the drama of Tiananmen and demonstrates how it unfolded, ended, and ultimately how that ending - in a consensus of forgetting - came to shape the world of the 21st century. It offers a theorization on the inclusion of China into global capitalism and argues that the planetary project of neoliberalism has been prolonged by China's market reforms. This has resulted in an ongoing convergence of economic and authoritarian political practices that transcend otherwise contrasting political systems. With China's growing global influence, the late leader Deng Xiaoping's statement that development is a hard truth increasingly conveys the logic of our contemporary world.

Confiance Reflexive Et Institutionnalisme: Des Theories Liberales Du Choix Rationnel A La Gouvernance Du Fait Social Monetaire
Les sorties de crise economique se font sans reelle remise en question de l'efficacite du systeme neo-liberal. Ce dernier beneficie en effet d'une puissante confiance du marche , dont l'aspect routinier opere une incapacite institutionnelle de redefinition democratique de son programme. Mais la confiance, loin de n'etre qu'un instrument de coordination et de stabilisation monetaire, est avant tout la preuve de l'indefectibilite du lien social et de la primaute de son enjeu non economique. C'est toute la tension entre capitalisation et socialisation qui se donne a voir a travers l'etude de ce phenomene. Cet ouvrage d'epistemologie politique presente une lecture critique, au travers du prisme de la confiance, du mouvement expansionniste de l'economie politique contemporaine, ainsi que des visions reductrices de l'acteur social et de son rapport aux institutions qu'elle vehicule. Par le biais d'une analyse du paradigme du capital social , l'auteur decrit, en un premier temps, la facon dont est concu le geste confiant par les theories de l'action collective etablies sur les fondements individualistes du choix rationnel. En mobilisant des reflexions issues de la phenomenologie sociale, du mouvement anti-utilitariste et de l'economie des conventions, le second temps traite du potentiel reflexif offert par le depassement d'une telle perspective institutionnaliste.

metodologia Paretiana : Tomo II: Stati Psichici E Costanti Dell'azione
Questo e il secondo tomo di una trilogia: I. Differenziazione, non linearita, equilibrio (gia pubblicato); II. Stati psichici e costanti dell'azione; III. Stati psichici e variabili dell'azione (che seguira a breve). In questo secondo tomo si procede all'applicazione della teoria dei residui, alla ricerca delle costanti dell'azione. Si parte sempre dal testo paretiano, con l'aggiunta di altri classici della sociologia ed estendendone esempi ed osservazioni tratti dalla contemporaneita. Uno sguardo da vicino, dunque. Stampa quotidiana, periodica e libri sono stati fonti inesauribili per l'individuazione di residui e (nel III tomo) di derivazioni. Il risultato e che dalle migliaia di esempi selezionati Ne sono stati estratti circa trecentocinquanta, divenuti parte integrante di questo volume. Ognuno potra sostituire un qualsiasi Esempio con un altro di apparente segno opposto, non muta il risultato: La potenza delle pulsioni (residui) e tale da portare opposte dottrine allo stesso punto ; poiche, in realta, non le azioni o i fatti concreti sono stati classificati e discussi, ma i loro elementi (sentimenti o stati psichici), i quali permettono di delineare la parte centrale di una teoria sociologica della mente.

Fernand Herman: La Passion De l'Europe
Passionne d'Europe, d'une Europe a la grande ambition politique et humaniste, ainsi se definit Fernand Herman en 1979. Ce fils d'agriculteur hesbignon qui, deja, allait a l'etranger enrichir son experience, apres des etudes de droit et d'economie, suivies d'un voyage aux Etats-Unis, participe a la mise en place des fondements financiers de l'Etat du Congo. Revenu en Belgique, a la tete de la Societe nationale d'investissement, il se construit une connaissance profonde du tissu industriel, une experience bien utile lorsqu'il est choisi comme ministre des Affaires economiques du gouvernement Tindemans en 1975. Rude experience que celle-la dans un gouvernement fragile, face aux crises successives. Elu lors des premieres elections directes du Parlement europeen en 1979, Fernand Herman y est, durant 20 ans, un pilier , un des plus actifs, des plus entreprenants, des plus ecoutes. Membre du comite Dooge, heritier spirituel d'Altiero Spinelli, federaliste convaincu, pedagogue, heraut du combat des couts induits par la non-Europe, auteur de rapports essentiels comme celui sur l'Union economique et monetaire et celui sur une Constitution pour l'Europe, il demeure actif, a sa retraite, a la Convention pour l'avenir de l'Europe de 2002. Quarante annees d'histoire de la Belgique et de l'Europe revivent ici, apprehendees par les yeux d'un passionne d'Europe, d'un acteur lucide et d'un analyste perspicace et informe.

Peut-on parler de service public des le XIXe siecle ?

La vigueur de l'institution postale et le caractere tres concret de son activite donnent vie a cette problematique tres juridique dont le risque etait de rester theorique et desincarne. Le transport du courrier permet ainsi de redecouvrir cette notion de service public, veritable puzzle dans lequel s'imbriquent les ideologies, les attentes et les necessites des epoques. Cette exploration a la fois historique, politique et juridique est eclairante sur la construction de l'attachement quasi visceral des Francais au service public, mais aussi a la Poste.

Action Locale Et Daeveloppement Rural En Europe: Le Modaele Europaeen LEADER 2007-2013
Cet ouvrage a un triple objectif. Il permet d'abord de revenir sur l'emergence de nouveaux espaces et scenes de l'action publique locale et sur la diversification des ressources mobilisees par les acteurs qui contribuent a la construction pluraliste des politiques d'amenagement rural. Il permet aussi d'interroger les differentes caracteristiques des transformations de l'action publique dans un contexte de nouvelles formes de coordination entre acteurs publics et acteurs prives. Dans une perspective resolument geographique, cet ouvrage permet enfin d'apprehender le territoire comme lieu de gestion et de projets de developpement rural. Partant de ces trois entrees, ce livre questionne l'action publique en prenant comme exemple la politique europeenne de developpement rural. Au-dela de son contenu intrinseque et de son mode d'elaboration, c'est sa mise en oeuvre dans les territoires ruraux qui retient ici l'attention. Tout en faisant preuve d'interdiscipline - c'est-a-dire sans evacuer les emprunts tres nombreux et les apports varies disciplinaires et a-disciplinaires - le sens de ce livre est alors de contribuer, via l'analyse de la mise en oeuvre des politiques de developpement rural en Europe, a cette geographie de l'action publique a definir entre acteurs et territoires ruraux.

Jacques Laffitte: Roi Des Banquiers Et Banquier Des Rois
Dans un monde ou tous les banquiers sont ou ont ete negociants et appartiennent a des dynasties parfois fort anciennes, Jacques Laffitte (1767-1844) fait figure d'outsider. Fils d'un charpentier, il a certes beneficie des bouleversements sociaux de son epoque: il est le premier commis de banque de l'Histoire a avoir succede directement a son patron, le celebre Perregaux, tant a la tete de son etablissement qu'au Conseil de Regence de la Banque de France; mais - peut-etre parce qu'aucune tradition ne l'entravait - il a su aussi envisager de maniere radicalement nouvelle le metier de banquier, et proposer aux elites un regard insolemment novateur sur la gestion des finances publiques. Son engagement politique decoule de son liberalisme, mais la encore il se distingue: banquier de Napoleon qu'il n'aimait pas, oppose a Louis XVIII qui l'avait pourtant nomme gouverneur de la Banque de France, il porta sur le trone Louis-Philippe d'Orleans dont il devint tres vite le plus farouche adversaire. Enfin, en 1837, a 70 ans, avec la creation de sa Caisse Generale du Commerce et de l'Industrie, il ouvrit la voie aux grands etablissements de credit tels que nous les connaissons aujourd'hui.

Cohaesion Sociale Et Territoriale Au Luxembourg: Regards Croisaes
Cet ouvrage porte sur la cohesion sociale et territoriale au Luxembourg. Ses seize chapitres abordent les facettes socio-economiques et spatiales de ces concepts. Ils couvrent ainsi des domaines aussi varies que les inegalites monetaires (revenus, salaires, richesse, pauvrete), les inegalites non monetaires (logement, emploi, education, integration des migrants) ou encore les inegalites en matiere de mobilite et d'acces aux services publics. Grace a un travail editorial et explicatif minutieux, cet ouvrage reussit le pari d'etre accessible au grand public tout en etant scientifiquement rigoureux. Un de ses atouts majeurs est son approche resolument interdisciplinaire. Pres de quarante auteurs du Centre de recherche luxembourgeois CEPS/INSTEAD y ont contribue. L'economie, la geographie, la sociologie et les statistiques sociales s'y cotoient et apportent des eclairages complementaires en croisant reellement les savoirs. En ancrant bon nombre de ses analyses dans une perspective internationale (englobant les pays limitrophes ou meme l'ensemble de l'Union europeenne), ce livre se penche aussi sur la mise en oeuvre des politiques publiques en matiere de cohesion (sociale et territoriale) dans un cadre supranational. Cet ouvrage est preface par Jean-Claude Juncker, Premier ministre du Grand-Duche de Luxembourg et ancien president permanent de l'Eurogroupe.

metodologia Paretiana : Tomo I: Differenziazione, Non Linearita, Equilibrio
Questo e il primo tomo di una trilogia: I. Differenziazione, non linearita, equilibrio; II. Costanti dell'azione; III. Variabili dell'azione. Il volume tratta dell'economia paretiana e specialmente della sua sociologia economica. La disposizione dei capitoli segue l'evoluzione dello stesso pensiero paretiano nella sua prima fase. Infatti, l'ultimo capitolo si conclude con l'esposizione dei concetti di azione logica e non logica e di residuo e derivazione, che costituiranno poi l'oggetto dei successivi volumi. Si dimostra come Pareto in realta si occupasse della mente, del soggetto che decide, che sceglie, le cui scelte aggregate a quelle di altri soggetti assumono valenze diverse con effetti emergenti o perversi, comunque quasi sempre non lineari e non logici. La loro dinamica ricorrente variata produce fluttuazioni e turbolenze nei sistemi studiati dalla sociologia altamente regolati e autoregolati, come dimostrato dalla paretiana teoria deduttiva dei residui e delle derivazioni. E quanto si vuole mettere in risalto con l'insieme del lavoro, nella speranza di suscitare ulteriori studi sul pensiero paretiano e proficui confronti e sfide con le recenti discipline della mente.
