Abstract

Switzerland likely has the most particular naturalization system in the world. Whereas in most countries citizenship attribution is regulated at the central level of the state, in Switzerland each municipality is accorded the right to decide who can become a Swiss citizen. This book aims at exploring naturalization processes from a comparative perspective and to explain why some municipalities pursue more restrictive citizenship policies than others. The Swiss case provides a unique opportunity to approach citizenship politics from new perspectives. It allows us to go beyond formal citizenship models and to account for the practice of citizenship. The analytical framework combines quantitative and qualitative data and helps us understand how negotiation processes between political actors lead to a large variety of local citizenship models. An innovative theoretical framework, integrating Bourdieu's political sociology, combines symbolic and material aspects of naturalizations and underlines the production processes of ethnicity.

Abstract

It is generally thought that all people should have equal opportunities and their social position should not be dictated by race, sex or heritage. This ideology of meritocracy has been embraced by the Dutch and other European societies. But is this something to strive for? This provocative book has a number of renowned philosophers and sociologists look at the downside of meritocracy. They show that meritocracy runs counter to other important ideals such as solidarity, respect and democracy.

Abstract

Ce livre réunit les actes du colloque international accueilli à l’Hôtel de Ville en octobre 2005, qui souhaitait esquisser, comme le souligne Daniel Roche en introduction, par-delà les acquis « un projet pour des tentatives de relecture et d’approfondissement, d’ouverture et de renouvellement ». L’originalité de l’ensemble est d’associer des champs d’étude moins fréquentés que l’histoire politique de la capitale en révolution. Il s’agit d’étudier la Cité, carrefour unique dans la France du XV...

Abstract

The Ministry for the Duchy of Schleswig was established after the end of the Schleswig-Holstein census in 1851 and existed until 1864. The documents of the Ministry are divided between the Danish Imperial Archives in Copenhagen and the Schleswig-Holstein State Archives. The majority of the documents have been in the Imperial Archives since the exchange of German-Danish archival documents in 1933. In the Schleswig-Holstein State Archives, local individual files for the southern and central Schleswig-Holstein areas as well as the minutes of outgoing letters (descript journals, letter books) and transcripts (registries, copy books, correspondence records) can be found. The total duration of the collection extends from 1713 to 1871, with the focus of the documents covering the period from 1849 to 1864.

Abstract

In Death's Waiting Room is a penetrating story about people suffering from dementia in a multi-cultural society, relevant to us all. Anne-Mei The carried out two years of ethnographic research in a nursing home in the Netherlands revealing what usually remains hidden from the public: the decision to stop treatment, the cultural and social gap between the Dutch occupants and the black Caribbean nursing staff, the communication problems with relatives, the tensions and aggression. But she also shares with us the touching and funny moments and experiences with the elderly occupants. This book also unravels "the Blauwborgje case" - which was the focus of much media attention in the Netherlands in the late 1990s - in which a nursing home refused to re-hydrate a man with extreme dementia because they considered his condition to be terminal, whilst his family disagreed and pressed charges for attempted murder. Anne-Mei The gives an account of the events that took place and also explores the wider relevance of the case.

Abstract

Le gouvernement des hommes use et abuse de « l’argument statistique ». Avec l’émergence d’un État néo-libéral, l’action publique s’appuie de plus en plus sur des indicateurs chiffrés qui fournissent des évaluations de la performance des différentes actions politiques. Des « palmarès » variés connaissent une grande diffusion (souvent sous l’appellation anglo-américaine de benchmarking), en hiérarchisant les lycées, les Universités, et même les nations. Ce passage par la quantification, loin de...

Abstract

After the change of power in Hamburg on March 8, 1933, the school administration was put under command of Karl Witt, a German nationalist and later Nazi. Converted to the National Socialist leadership principle, it was increasingly instrumentalized for the implementation of National Socialist educational concepts. These were mainly enforced by the persons who led the authority or dominated by informal power. The position of the four school-related officials in the power and governance system of National Socialism in Hamburg is therefore explained in this publication. Besides Karl Witt, three men were the protegés of the so-calld "Gauleiter" and "Reichsstatthalter" Karl Kaufmann: namely Wilhelm Schulz, Albert Henze, and Ernst Schrewe. Their proximity to the centre of power around Kaufmann led to very different formal and informal anchors in the mechanisms of the polycratic National Socialist system. The political pressure exerted by the head of the school administration on the schools intensified since the beginning of the war, culminating in the power and ruthless exercise of power by the National Socialist "Senatsdirektor" and "Gauschulungsleiter" Albert Henze.
