Abstract

Children of homeowners are more likely to enter homeownership&#xD;than are children whose parents rent. We investigate whether this&#xD;association is dependent on parental divorce, focusing on parental&#xD;assistance as a conduit of intergenerational transmission. Event history&#xD;analyses of data for England and Wales from the British Household&#xD;Panel Survey (BHPS) show that the intergenerational transmission of&#xD;homeownership is stronger for children of divorced parents compared&#xD;with children of married parents. Such an eff ect may arise from two&#xD;channels: (1) children of divorced parents are more in need of parental&#xD;assistance due to socio-economic disadvantages associated with&#xD;parental divorce; and (2) compared with married parents, divorced&#xD;homeowning parents (mothers) rely more on housing wealth, rather&#xD;than fi nancial wealth, for assisting children. Findings support both&#xD;explanations. Children of divorced parents are furthermore less likely&#xD;to co-reside. We fi nd limited evidence that when they do, co-residence&#xD;is less conductive to homeownership compared with children from&#xD;married parents.

Abstract

Stolen identity - the forced "Germanization" of "racially valuable" children during National Socialism, illustrated by the country of Poland. Heinrich Himmler, acting in his capacity as “Reich Commissioner for the Strengthening of German Foldom”, ordered the selection of "racially valuable" polish children for "Germanization" – the Teutonic blood had to be collected even if it meant kidnapping children. For this reason polish children from orphanages, schools, forster parents, parents who refused to sign the “Volksliste” and parents who had been murdered or sent to forced labor or concentration camps had to have a "racial" examination – children who possessed the Nordic features were regarded as suitable for the “Germanization” and were distributed in special children homes. At these special children homes the children were forced to give up their own identity step by step: the children got new German names and had to learn German, moreover contact with relatives at home was painfully forbidden. In Austria, known as "Ostmark" during National Socialism, two special places were found, where polish children were confronted with "Germanization practices": the children home "Alpenland" in Oberweis next to Gmunden and the resettlement camp "Parsch" in Salzburg.After a "successful Germanization" the children were placed in German and Austrian forster families. There the children were treated in different ways: some children became a part of the family, they felt safety and comfortable and were treated like their own children. Other polish girls and boys were treated badly: the forster families took advantage of their defencelessness, they abused and beat the polish children, they reagard them just as cheap labourer.After the war only a small number of such kidnapped children was tracked by the several tracking services like UNRRA, IRO or the Polish Red Cross. But further problems arose when German and Austrian forster families or the children themselves opposed the repatriation to Poland. Being back in Poland, the polish children were regarded as children of the enemy – regarded as “German” of the polish society.

Abstract

An in-depth study of the complex situation in Colombia; extensive research involving a broad range of participants. Drawing on a broad research on historical, geographical and socio-political context of the Colombian conflict, the book explores the role of children entangled in the military fighting. Following the case studies of minors, starting from the recruitment up to the disengagement, the authors seek to understand the process itself and to analyze various support methods offered to the affected children. Weaving together different points of view, coming from the children, and from the workers of the organizations offering help, the book gives an engaging and dramatic overview of the phenomenon of child soldiers.

Abstract

Dieser Band vereinigt die Referate des am 29. November 2013 veranstalteten 12. Göttinger Workshops zum Familienrecht, der sich dem Pflegekindverhältnis widmete. Pflegekinder leben häufig über längere Zeit in unsicheren rechtlichen Verhältnissen, obwohl gerade für sie eine stabile rechtliche Situation wichtig ist, sei es durch Rückführung in die Herkunftsfamilie, Adoption oder rechtliche Absicherung der Pflegeverhältnisse. Eine Reform des Pflegekinderrechts wird deshalb seit vielen Jahren von verschiedensten Professionen gefordert. Den Auftakt der Veranstaltung bildete die Darstellung der Rechtsprechung des Bundesverfassungsgerichts zu Pflegekindverhältnissen (Gabriele Britz), gefolgt von einem humanwissenschaftlichen Einblick in das Bindungs- und Erziehungserleben von Pflegekindern (Martina Cappenberg). Im Anschluss wurden die Instrumente der Hilfeplanung des Jugendamtes näher beleuchtet (Diana Eschelbach), bevor die Belastbarkeit der Einschätzungen von Sachverständigen und Jugendämtern im Rahmen von Rückführungsentscheidungen aus humanwissenschaftlicher Sicht vorgestellt wurde (Heinz Kindler). Es folgte ein kritischer Blick auf die Verbleibensanordnung als Instrument zur Sicherung von Kontinuität (Ludwig Salgo). Den Abschluss bildete eine juristische Problemanalyse des Umgangs von Herkunftseltern mit ihrem fremd untergebrachten Kind (Stefan Heilmann). Die Veranstaltung endete mit einer Podiumsdiskussion zum rechtspolitischen Handlungsbedarf im Bereich des Pflegekindverhältnisses. Band 15 der Reihe „Göttinger Juristische Schriften“ Die Reihe wird von der Juristischen Fakultät der Georg-August-Universität herausgegeben und macht Veranstaltungen an der Fakultät einer interessierten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich.

Abstract

This chapter takes advantage of recent insights from the history of&#xD;emotions to offer a fresh perspective on children’s emotional responses to&#xD;death. Drawing on a range of printed and archival sources, it argues that&#xD;children expressed diverse and conflicting emotions, from fear and anxiety,&#xD;to excitement and ecstasy. In contrast to Houlbrooke and Stannard, I&#xD;have found that children’s responses seem to have changed little over the&#xD;early modern period. This continuity is largely due to the endurance of&#xD;the Christian doctrine of salvation, with its hauntingly divergent fates of&#xD;heaven and hell.

Abstract

This volume puts forward several reflections about the idea of age and gender in Ancient Greece. It brings together seven studies by Spanish, Portuguese and Argentinian researchers. The essays gathered here are based upon information from different sources: literary, iconographic, epigraphic, and social. They do not focus on the citizen, i.e. on the adult male as the citizen, according to Aristotle’s definition, but on children, elderly, maidens. Even the field of male prostitution is explored. It is a study which, based on the abundant bibliography which has developed over recent years on these issues, offers an overall reflection on the margins of citizenship seen from the parameters of gender and age.

Abstract

The author examines the practice of video interrogation for children witnesses. Starting point for their empirical investigation is the question of whether the law reform is not only meant well, but can be implemented practically. Here the author builds on the regulations of the 1998 established law for witness protection, to its feasibility in terms of the intended effective protection of victims, particularly the avoidance of so-called secondary victimization (trauma), experts from the federal state of Lower Saxony - prosecutors, police and courts - report by their own experiencees. In five selected district courts of Lower Saxony, the author has also conducted an extensive document analysis on the use of video testimony, and concluded that the video technology in criminal proceedings is used rarely. In specific reform proposals „de lege ferenda“ also the recent regulations of the Law Reform Act of 2003 victims are included in the evaluative study.

Abstract

Today’s children are tomorrow’s citizens. Good health and well-being in the early years are the foundations for well-adjusted and productive adult lives and a thriving society. But children are being let down in Australia and elsewhere by the lack of knowledge transfer between the worlds of research, policy and practice. Improving such transfer is the job of knowledge brokers – the various ways they can operate are explored in this book through case examples and the lessons learned from experienced proponents. The book concludes by posing three sets of ideas to shape the future of knowledge brokering.

Abstract

Few things make Japanese adults feel quite as anxious today as the phenomenon called the “child crisis.” Various media teem with intense debates about bullying in schools, child poverty, child suicides, violent crimes committed by children, the rise of socially withdrawn youngsters, and forceful moves by the government to introduce a more conservative educational curriculum. These issues have propelled Japan into the center of a set of global conversations about the nature of children and how to raise them. Engaging both the history of children and childhood and the history of emotions, contributors to this volume track Japanese childhood through a number of historical scenarios. Such explorations—some from Japan’s early modern past—are revealed through letters, diaries, memoirs, family and household records, and religious polemics about promising, rambunctious, sickly, happy, and dutiful youngsters.
