Abstract

"This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the 2016 Australian federal election. Won by the Liberal–National Coalition by the slimmest of margins, the result created a climate of political uncertainty that threatened the government’s lower house majority. While the campaign might have lacked the theatre of previous elections, it provides significant insights into the contemporary political and policy challenges facing Australian democracy and society today. In this, the 16th edited collection of Australian election studies, 41 contributors from a range of disciplines bring an unprecedented depth of expertise to the 2016 contest. The book covers the context, key battles and issues in the campaign, and reports and analyses the results in detail. It provides an evaluation of the role of political actors such as the parties, independents, the media, interest groups and GetUp!, and examines election debate in the online space. Experts from a range of policy fields provide an analysis of election issues ranging from the economy and industrial relations to social policy, the environment, and gender and sexuality. Each of the chapters is written on the basis of in‑depth and original research, providing new insights into this important political event."

Abstract

Das Buch untersucht die umstrittene Institutionalisierung der schweizerischen Gleichstellungspolitik seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre vor allem im Bereich der Erwerbsarbeit und der staatlichen Gleichstellungsinstitutionen. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, wie die politischen Steuerungsprinzipien miteinander verknüpft werden und ob sie Wirkung sowie Überzeugungskraft entfalten können. Alle politischen Akteurinnen und Akteure in der Schweiz bekennen sich rhetorisch zur Norm der Gleichstellung von Frau und Mann, doch die entsprechenden politischen Maßnahmen sind offenbar hoch umstritten: sie sind ausgesprochen vielfältig, aber ihnen fehlt in Bezug auf die Verteilung von Geld, Macht, Zeit und Anerkennung der nachhaltige Erfolg. Wie lässt sich das erklären? In der Forschung zur Gleichstellungspolitik wird seit einiger Zeit das Augenmerk verstärkt auf das Zusammenspiel und die Dynamiken der Maßnahmen untereinander gerichtet. Das Buch wendet diese Perspektive auf die Entwicklung der schweizerischen Gleichstellungspolitik seit Mitte der 1990er Jahre an.

Abstract

Australia’s federal system is in a state of flux and its relevance is being challenged. Dramatic shifts are occurring in the ways in which power and responsibility are shared between governments. Pressure for reform is coming not just from above, but from below, as the needs of local and regional communities – both rural and urban – occupy an increasingly important place on the national stage. How will these competing pressures for centralisation and devolution in the structures of federalism be reconciled? In this volume, experts and policy practitioners from diverse backgrounds canvass this uncertain future to conclude that the future of state, regional and local institutions is not only a vital question of federal governance, but must be addressed in a conscious and concerted way if Australian federalism is to evolve in ways that are sufficiently legitimate, effective, efficient and adaptive.

Abstract

1983 was one of the tensest years of the Cold War. This volume publishes 389 documents for the first time that reveal West Germany`s efforts to maintain East-West dialogue in the face of intensified confrontation between the two blocs and to prevent collapse of the process of European unification. Among the successes were the decision for a follow-up CSCE conference in Madrid and the continuation of the special relationship with the East Germany.

Abstract

1984 marked a low point in East-West relations. NATO`s deployment of medium-range nuclear missiles in Western Europe as well as the announcement of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) led to a ratcheting up of tensions. The CDE, a conference that sought to build confidence and promote disarmament, first convened in Stockholm in 1984, yet it was not possible to break the deadlock in negotiations over nuclear weapons until after the death of Andropov and Reagan`s election victory. West Germany and France expanded their cooperation during this period as they sought greater European integration as well as the strengthening of the Western European Union (WEU). The West German government in Bonn came under pressure following reports that German firms had assisted Iraq with chemical weapons production. It was also criticized for considering the delivery of tanks to Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, a growing number of East Germans were taking refuge in Western embassies, seeking to escape the Eastern bloc. This fanned tensions between East and West bowing to Soviet pressure, the East German head of state, Erich Honecker, cancelled a trip to West Germany. The difficult historical burden borne by West Germany was evident during the D-Day memorial ceremony in Normandy as well as during the memorial service attended by Helmut Kohl and François Mitterrand in Verdun. West Germany was exhorted by many nations to shun revanchism and Pangermanism. The 357 documents made available for the first time in this collection address a range of other topics, including the assassination of Indira Gandhi, the wars in Lebanon and the Pesian Gulf, the conflicts in Central America, and the Polish Crisis.

Abstract

Anfang 2006 tritt Alan Greenspan als Vorsitzender der Federal Reserve (Fed) ab. Damit endet gleichzeitig eine einschneidende Epoche der amerikanischen Geldpolitik. Das Urteil zur Greenspan-Ära fällt bisher ambivalent aus. Auf der einen Seite wird der pragmatischen und flexiblen Geldpolitik der letzten 18 Jahre ein erheblicher Anteil am Wachstums- und Beschäftigungserfolg der USA zugebilligt. Andererseits wird die einseitige Ausrichtung auf den Vorsitzenden und das Fehlen einer klaren und verständlichen Konzeption bemängelt. Diese Arbeit versucht zu klären, ob die geldpolitische Strategie der Federal Reserve in der heutigen Form ein Erfolgs- oder Auslaufmodell darstellt. Dazu wird die Fed-Strategie seit 1987 umfassend analysiert und bewertet. Die Analyse soll insbesondere Antworten darauf geben, welche Rolle Beschäftigungsziele in der Geldpolitik spielen sollten, und ob die Fed-Strategie für die Europäische Zentralbank (EZB) Vorbildcharakter besitzt.

Abstract

When early criminal defense means to avoid unnecessary detention which burdens both the involved parties, the enforcement and detention and in terms of costs, the state in unnecessary ways? These questions are discussed in the present investigation.

It relies on the analysis of over 1,300 criminal acts and the Federal Central Register’s (Bundeszentralregister) statements, the evaluation of the detention list of the local court of Hanover and on extensive interviews with people involved in the project (defence lawyers, prosecutors, judges, court clerks and remand prisoners). The empirical findings of the accompanying be embedded in a legal framework and criminological conclusions are presented.

Abstract

From the beginning it was a key priority of the first president of the Federal Republic of Germany to reply personally to many of the hundreds of letters he received every day from individual citizens. In Heuss' correspondence with them, important themes of postwar society in the context of collapse and reconstruction, restoration and new beginning are evident. Heuss' letters were friendly in tone and written specifically to each individual. Often quite humorous, they sometimes tended to be lecturesome and contentious. The letters provide insight into how Heuss perceived his office, and his stance set an example for his successors. Contains letters from citizens and Heuss' replies As political dialogue between individual citizens and the first president of the Federal Republic of Germany , the correspondence provides insight into German postwar society.

Abstract

Already in his first term of office Theodor Heuss laid the foundation for a new tradition in German history. In his person, a positive attitude towards democracy was uniquely united with extensive historical experience and a strong political will to shape the young state. Through his educated but at the same time folksy demeanor, he integrated the different groups of the population and sharpened the democratic consciousness of the citizens of this still-fragile democracy.

Abstract

Theodor Heuss assumed his second term of office as President of Germany in September 1954 under propitious circumstances: He was re-elected by an overwhelming majority in the Federal Assembly, and enjoyed surprisingly broad public approval. His non-partisan style of leadership allowed him to win the support of Germany`s citizenry for key political decisions. As a representative abroad he presented Germany in a new light, showcasing it as a decidedly democratic, peaceful, and civil society.
