Abstract

Dieses Open-Access-Buch setzt die 2018 begonnene Sammlung von Methoden für transdisziplinäre, transformative wie nicht-transformative Forschung fort. Auch in Band 2 werden Methoden der Wissenserzeugung, Wissensintegration und Transformation so ausführlich beschrieben, dass Dritte sie umsetzen können. Entwickelt wurden die Methoden von Reallaboren in Baden-Württemberg, sie eignen sich jedoch auch für Forschung außerhalb von Reallaboren. Reflexionen insbesondere über die Zusammenarbeit mit kommunalen Praxisakteuren runden das Buch ab. Auch diese sind gewonnen aus der forschungspraktischen Erfahrung in Reallaboren und adressieren Fragen transdisziplinärer Forschung, die weit über das Forschungsformat Reallabor hinausreichen. Der Herausgeber und die Herausgeberin: Fürspr. Rico Defila und Dr. Antonietta Di Giulio leiten die Forschungsgruppe Inter-/Transdisziplinarität, Programm MGU (Mensch Gesellschaft Umwelt), Universität Basel.

Abstract

Dieses Open-Access-Buch präsentiert ein praxistheoretisches Konzept, das die Analyse verschiedener Aspekte und Formen kollektiven Handelns ermöglicht. Im Zentrum steht die Erweiterung des Handlungsverständnisses bei Anthony Giddens für Kollektive. Dabei werden Ansätze der Klassiker, der Organisations- und Bewegungsforschung sowie der jüngeren Debatten in Sozialtheorie und Philosophie integriert und miteinander verbunden. Heute wird eine neue Vielfalt an Formen kollektiven Handelns thematisiert, traditionelle Formen werden dagegen in Frage gestellt. Die vorgeschlagene Grundidee lautet: Lösen wir uns vom bisherigen Fokus auf stabile Kollektivakteure, gerät die fragile Praxis kollektiven Handelns in den Blick. Praxistheorien erhalten derzeit große Aufmerksamkeit. Sie haben zur Handlungsfähigkeit von Kollektiven bislang jedoch wenig zu sagen. Das Buch füllt diese Leerstelle und hat dabei stets die Anwendbarkeit für empirische Analysen im Blick.​

Abstract

Active learning is now a form of learning that accompanies the knowledge evolution that challenges the learner to promote it, but also encourages him to investigate and become emotionally involved in the task. The great key to obtaining this behavior successfully depends, therefore, on the subject's involvement and ability to undertake, so that active learning becomes emotional entrepreneurial learning that generates new ideas and new forms of knowledge. From memorization, we move on to inquiry, from questioning to constructive participation, from hypostasis to problem-solving, from generalization to critical thinking. When we look at this book, we see real examples, concrete, and senses, from the most important act of human nature: learning!

Abstract

This open access book describes the differences in US census coverage, also referred to as “differential undercount”, by showing which groups have the highest net undercounts and which groups have the greatest undercount differentials, and discusses why such undercounts occur. In addition to focusing on measuring census coverage for several demographic characteristics, including age, gender, race, Hispanic origin status, and tenure, it also considers several of the main hard-to-count populations, such as immigrants, the homeless, the LBGT community, children in foster care, and the disabled. However, given the dearth of accurate undercount data for these groups, they are covered less comprehensively than those demographic groups for which there is reliable undercount data from the Census Bureau. This book is of interest to demographers, statisticians, survey methodologists, and all those interested in census coverage.

Abstract

Among the most prized and revered democratic institutions are elections. Few other actions typify what it means to participate in the democratic process in the same way that turning up, casting a ballot, and then having that ballot be part of determining who will control power has. Indeed, elections are at the center of what we view as democracy and much ink has been spilled in attempting to explain just how essential the electoral action is to democracy. In this volume our authors explore elections both from an understanding of the systems that govern elections across both the developed and developing world, and from the perspective of the individual voter who participates in that system. Taken together these analyses provide an intriguing look into this core aspect of democracy.

Abstract

This book is an interdisciplinary effort to understand the evolution of communication from cells to societies, both in living organisms and in non-living ones, such as designed or emergent systems from socio-technological innovations (i.e., digital communication, institutional communication). It aims to provide better understanding of the universal versus contextual patterns of communication that we can potentially classify and identify if we look deeper into the history and evolution of this phenomenon at large. Novel research from a variety of disciplines, such as information theory, biology, linguistics, culture and social science that take a complex perspective is being explored, for an integrated understanding of what communication is at a fundamental level.

Abstract

This book provides a series of topics on flood risk management from around the world. The first section includes models for improved approaches to flood risk management, the importance of groundwater management in the context of floods (focussing on Taiwan), contingency plan for local communities using flood simulation, deciding on response strategies against the identified flood risk before a flood occurs (illustrated for the Philippines) and models for estimating maximum flood heights (illustrated for Mozambique). The second section examines flood risk management relating to the urban environment, with examples from a coastal city in Saudi Arabia and a housing development in Mexico. The third section relates to flood risk management in the context of agriculture, particularly relating to damage to Asian rice crops.
