Politicizing Gender and Democracy in the Context of the Istanbul Convention

Politicizing Gender and Democracy in the Context of the Istanbul Convention by Andrea Krizsán
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 261 Pages | ISBN : 3030790681 | 7.7 MB

In this meticulously documented study, Krizsán and Roggeband demonstrate how the Istanbul Convention mobilized conservative forces, fostered intricate ties between autocratic states and nonstate actors, refigured civil society to advantage anti-equality activists, defunded feminist organizations providing services to abused women and shifted resources to conservative organizations favoring “family values” over women’s empowerment. Their insightful analysis has vital lessons for those concerned with social justice in the 21st century.

Psychological Requirements Analysis in Theory and Practice: For Executives and Human Resources Managers who Want to Raise Requirement Profiles by Heribert Wienkamp
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 45 Pages | ISBN : NA/ | 2.3 MB

Psychological requirement analyses with their requirement and qualification profiles show what will be important at work in the future! Both the selection of applicants and the training of personnel, as was the case, for example, in view of new strategic challenges in the financing business of a bank, should benefit from this information, which is to be collected in advance by means of a mix of methods, e.g., questionnaires and "expert interviews" on site. On the basis of selected personnel key figures from operational personnel work, it is necessary to check whether the current personnel strategy is "still on track".

Schriften zur Grundlegung der Soziologie: Theoretische und methodische Perspektiven by René König
Deutsch | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 321 Pages | ISBN : 3658282487 | 4.7 MB

Dieser Band versammelt René Königs Überlegungen zur theoretischen und methodischen Grundlegung der Soziologie. In ihrer Gestalt als spezifische empirische Einzelwissenschaft will diese Soziologie "nichts als Soziologie" sein; dies schließt aber nicht aus, dass in der Soziologie, wie sie René König betreibt, den Erkenntnissen der Human- und Kulturwissenschaften eine zentrale theoretische Funktion zukommt. Auch zu grundsätzlichen erkenntnistheoretischen und methodologischen Problemen sowie zu Fragen einer Ethik der empirischen Soziologie und Sozialforschung nimmt König dezidiert Stellung.

Saving Cities: A Taxonomy of Urban Technologies

Saving Cities: A Taxonomy of Urban Technologies by Shane Epting
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 64 Pages | ISBN : 3030858324 | 1.4 MB

This book makes the case that several urban technologies contribute to wicked problems such as climate change and vast social and economic inequalities. Such situations often create unfavorable conditions for mental life in cities. These conditions force us to expand the taxonomy of technology to include new designations: “wicked” and “saving” technologies.

The WTO Transit Regime for Landlocked Countries and its Impacts on Members’ Regional Transit Agreements

The WTO Transit Regime for Landlocked Countries and its Impacts on Members’ Regional Transit Agreements: The Case of Afghanistan’s Transit Trade with Pakistan by Suhailah Akbari
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 255 Pages | ISBN : 3030734633 | 4.3 MB

This book assesses Afghanistan’s transit trade with Pakistan in the context of WTO transit regime for landlocked countries and its impacts on Members’ regional transit agreements. The key questions this book seeks to answer are the extent Afghanistan can benefit from WTO transit rules in demanding freedom of transit through the territory of Pakistan, how these rules influence the transit agreement concluded between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and finally how useful it would be to challenge Pakistan under the WTO dispute settlement system for its failure to provide Afghanistan freedom of transit and free access to and from the sea.

Joseph Conrad and Postcritique: Politics of Hope, Politics of Fear by Jay Parker
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 238 Pages | ISBN : 3030724980 | 3.4 MB

‘This collection of essays is a significant contribution to both Conrad studies and the critique / postcritique debate. Through a series of original, insightful and pertinently suggestive critical essays, focussed largely on canonical works by Conrad (Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim and The Secret Agent), it constitutes a paradigm shift in Conrad studies, while, at the same time, using Conrad as a case study, to demonstrate and explore a variety of postcritical approaches.’

Emergent States in Photoinduced Charge-Density-Wave Transitions

Emergent States in Photoinduced Charge-Density-Wave Transitions by Alfred Zong
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 234 Pages | ISBN : 3030817504 | 67.4 MB

This book advances understanding of light-induced phase transitions and nonequilibrium orders that occur in a broken-symmetry system. Upon excitation with an intense laser pulse, materials can undergo a nonthermal transition through pathways different from those in equilibrium. The mechanism underlying these photoinduced phase transitions has long been researched, but many details in this ultrafast, non-adiabatic regime still remain to be clarified.
