Abstract

The advancing digitalisation is leading to a fundamental change in the world of work. So far, women have not taken advantage of the associated career opportunities to the same extent as men. A gender-sensitive design of degree programmes can make a significant contribution to changing this situation. This publication examines which measures were taken to this end in the new "Business Administration - Digital Economy" course at Beuth University of Applied Sciences. In addition, relevant experiences and good practices from other universities are presented and the possible gain of knowledge on career goals and career requirements from surveys of students and graduates is discussed.

Abstract

Offering key insights into critical debates on the construction, management and destruction of heritage in Muslim contexts, this volume considers how Islamic heritages are constructed through texts and practices which award heritage value. It examines how the monolithic representation of Islamic heritage (as a singular construct) can be enriched by the true diversity of Islamic heritages and how endangerment and vulnerability in this type of heritage construct can be re-conceptualized. Assessing these questions through an interdisciplinary lens including heritage studies, anthropology, history, conservation, religious studies and archaeology, this pivot covers global and local examples including heritage case studies from Indonesia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Jordan, and Pakistan.

Abstract

The European Union interest group population is often characterised as being&#xD;biased towards business and detached from its constituency base. Many scholars&#xD;attribute this to institutional factors unique to the EU. Yet, assessing whether or&#xD;not the EU is indeed unique in this regard requires a comparative research design.&#xD;We compare the EU interest group population with those in four member states:&#xD;France, Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands. We diff erentiate system, policy&#xD;domain and organisational factors and examine their eff ects on interest group&#xD;diversity. Our results show that the EU interest system is not more biased towards&#xD;the representation of business interests than the other systems. Moreover, EU&#xD;interest organisations are not more detached from their constituents than those in&#xD;the studied countries. Everywhere, business interest associations seem to be better&#xD;capable of representing their members’ interests than civil society groups. These&#xD;fi ndings suggest that the EU is less of a sui generis system than commonly assumed&#xD;and imply the need for more fi ne-grained analyses of interest group diversity.

Abstract

The book develops a unifying perspective on how learning influences evolutionary dynamics which for the first time explains seemingly contradicting results from the literature. It also reveals formerly unknown facets of the complex interplay of the two major biological adaptation mechanisms. The results apply to models from computational intelligence and evolutionary biology alike, thus contribute to the transfer of principles of biological adaptation to digital processing system.

Abstract

Anti-migrant populism is on the rise across Europe, and diversity and multiculturalism are increasingly presented as threats to social cohesion. Yet diversity is also a mundane social reality in urban neighbourhoods. With this in mind, Studying Diversity, Migration and Urban Multiculture explores how we can live together with and in difference. What is needed for conviviality to emerge and what role can research play? This volume demonstrates how collaboration between scholars, civil society and practitioners can help to answer these questions.

Abstract

How is solidarity achieved in highly diverse societies - particularly those that have been until recently characterized by rather homogeneous populations? What are the implications of growing levels of diversity on existing social arrangements? These two fundamental questions are explored in this edited collection, which examines the challenges of minority integration in four Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. These nations represent paradigmatic examples of social democratic welfare states that place a premium on a robust package of social rights, combined with policies aimed at reducing levels of class-based inequality and promoting gender equity. All four of these nations have witnessed growing levels of diversity due to immigration and three of them have been forced to rethink their policies concerning the indigenous Sámi, as well as old minority groups. Two introductory chapters, by Thomas Hylland Eriksen and Peter Kivisto, serve as a conceptual framework for the seven case studies that follow, and which, from a variety of perspectives and with differing emphases, analyze the evolving realities in these nations today. Taken together, they offer evidence of the critical issues surrounding attempts to achieve solidarity while valorizing diversity.
