Abstract

In the context of Turkey's accession to the EU, the issue of potential migration from Turkey and its impact upon European labor markets became one of the concerns of the EU, considering Turkey's growing population and young labor force. In 2011, half a century after the bi-lateral agreement between Turkey and Germany on labor recruitment in 1961, migration plays a key role in relations of Turkey with the EU and will even increase its significance - not necessarily for the next fifty years but certainly for the next decade. This book touches upon various aspects of the ongoing debate about the effects of Turkey's accession to the EU upon the migration flows and sheds light on various dimensions of current panorama, addresses policy implications as well as future challenges and opportunities.

Abstract

This book is one of the products of the cooperation between Lúrio and Coimbra universities, in this case resulting from the homonymous event that took place at Island of Mozambique between 19 and 29 July 2017, whose designation is very clear in its designs. It is structured in two parts: one that basically results in the composition of the results of the seven themes developed by the various workshops, with an initial text of integration by the main scientific responsible of the project; another with 5 texts from 6 authors, corresponding to the harmonized development of the public lectures made during the event, in some cases integrating data that resulted from the interaction with the teams of the workshops and with the population of the Island. To open a brief text of the coordinators of the book and another one of the Rector of UniLúrio and the Director of the respective Faculty of Architecture and Physical Planning. Muhipiti workshops: strategic planning, heritage, development results from a joint work between Portuguese and Mozambican researchers and professors from the architecture and urban areas of two universities, thus promoting the directives of a civil responsibility investigation for the transfer of knowledge to the community. It is more than the complete result of proposals for action on the important territory and cultural landscape in question, since it ends up convey methodological proposals with different origins, orientations and purposes.

Abstract

Sport - in particular high-performance sport - is a fascination that is used as a platform for societal concerns. This is the base for different interests in active and passive sports and the state's interest in top-class sport. In most countries, top-class sport is a national concern: states train their athletes in national training centres, support their sports associations in international competitions or promote applications for major sporting events.The articles in this volume provide a well-founded insight into the organisation of high-performance sport and show the different paths of selected countries.

Abstract

Cette recherche a pris forme avec l’ambition initiale de comparer le travail du métal à Alep dans les ateliers encore en place entre 2004 et 2009, avec les mêmes activités à d’autres époques en milieu urbain. La présente publication porte essentiellement sur le volet contemporain. La métallurgie traditionnelle actuelle constitue un système d’éléments en interaction dans la ville : les auteurs croisent ici les aspects techniques (les processus de fabrication) et fonctionnels (l’organisation du travail dans l’atelier et les attitudes corporelles), avec une réflexion sur l’organisation générale de l’espace en rapport avec des considérations culturelles et sociales et avec le fonctionnement des pouvoirs urbains. Cet ouvrage s’intéresse en premier lieu à des ateliers sis dans des souks anciens : forgerons, artisans du cuivre et du bronze, étameurs. Une des questions que pose cette activité porte sur les modes d’intégration de la nouveauté aux savoir-faire et aux fonctionnements hérités, par exemple sur les attitudes du travail et le rapport au sol : travailler assis au sol, assis sur un siège, debout ? La fonderie de fer, d’acier, de fonte, plus moderne, se trouve dans des ateliers plus vastes, dans des zones d’activité officielles ou informelles en périphérie. Ces ateliers font partie d’une autre économie en développement. Le passage de la petite métallurgie traditionnelle du souk aux ateliers moyens semi‑industrialisés, bien plus qu’un déplacement géographique, ne constitue-t-il pas un changement de nature ? Les enquêtes menées par les auteurs à Alep avant 2011 ainsi que leurs photographies et illustrations, enregistrent des activités disparues dont les locaux situés près d’une ligne de front ont servi de champ de bataille et ont été pillés et détruits : leurs témoignages, présentés dans cet ouvrage, possèdent donc essentiellement une valeur patrimoniale.

Abstract

This volume documents the Third Meeting of the Boys' Slaves, which took place from 30 September to 2 October 1994 in Hamburg. The meetings are understood to be workshops with a certain workshop character, the participants consciously recruit from the circle of junior slavists who are not yet habilitated and / or in a position of life. In keeping with the workshop character, contributions were also presented at the meeting which, as components of more comprehensive work or as interim results of larger projects, were not intended for publication in the given context. These are Sylke Eichler (Leipzig), Dorothee Fehrmann (Leipzig), Robert Hammel (Göttingen), Uwe Junghanns (Berlin) and Jana Schulze (Leipzig / Bautzen).

Abstract

The autonomy of sport which is constitutionally recognised is not consistently respected by EU law. There are complaints that the necessary cooperation of the federations in sport is not sufficiently taken into account. This is where the speakers of the 9th International Hamburg Symposium "Sport and Economics" come in when they address legal and economic questions about major sporting events and discuss proposals on the status of sport in the European context. It shows that sport is economically shaped, which has not yet found an adequate equivalent at European level. This is evident, for example, in sports betting and the gambling monopoly.The volume will further stimulate the debate created by the EU White Paper on Sport and the Bundestag resolution on sport in Europe.

Abstract

One of the major knowledge challenges in the domain of Resilient and Sustainable Food Systems refers to the integration of perspectives on consumption, patterns that support public health, inclusive value chains, and environmentally sustainable food production. While there is a long record of the analysis of separate interventions, this special issue generates integrated insights, provides cross-cutting perspectives, and outlines practical and policy solutions that address these global challenges.The collection of papers promotes the view that sustainable food systems require thorough insights into the structure and dynamics of agri-food production systems, the drivers for integrating food value chains and markets, and key incentives for supporting healthier consumer choices. On the production side, potential linkages between agricultural commercialization and intensification and their effects for food security and nutritional outcomes are analyzed. Value Chains are assessed for their contribution to improving exchange networks and markets for food products that simultaneously support efficiency, circularity, and responsiveness. Individual motives and market structures for food consumption need to be understood in order to be able to outline suitable incentives to enhance healthy dietary choice.The contributed papers focus on interfaces between food system activities and processes of adaptive change that are critical for overcoming key constraints and trade-offs between sustainable food and healthy diets.
