Abstract

In den letzen Jahren rückten vielfältige Gender Budgeting-Initiativen in den öffentlichen Fokus, die das Ziel hatten, die Gleichstellung von Frauen und Männern zu fördern. Ihnen wird ein großes emanzipatorisches und demokratisches Potential zugeschrieben. Während der Demokratisierungsanspruch zwar häufig betont wird, stellen die Definition und Präzisierung von Demokratie bzw. Demokratisierung bislang weitgehend unbehandelte Bereiche dar. Daher zielt die Arbeit darauf ab, die theoretische Fundierung von Gender Budgeting zu vertiefen und damit einen Beitrag zu einer geschlechtergerechten und emanzipatorischen Demokratisierung der Finanzpolitik zu leisten. Mit Hilfe einer Qualitativen Inhaltsanalyse wird eine Untersuchung feministisch-demokratietheoretischer Überlegungen vorgenommen, um daraus einen Kriterienkatalog zu entwickeln. Dieser wird anschließend in den Budgetprozess integriert, um ein Modell eines feministisch-demokratischen Budgetprozesses beispielhaft anhand des Wiener Budgetkreislaufes zu entwerfen.

Abstract

Commons - the world belongs to us all! The never-ending global financial crisis shows: Market and state have failed. It is therefore not surprising that Commons, the idea of communal organization and use of common goods and resources, find strong support - not only since the Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to Elinor Ostrom. Commons are more important than ever. They are not based on the idea of scarcity, but draw from abundance. This volume with contributions by 90 international authors from science, politics, and society introduces a modern concept of Commons that radically questions classic assumptions in theories of economy and property, and outlines a different culture of coexistence.

Abstract

The logic of capitalism is that of dividing and sharing. Only that in capitalism, people do not share, but rather, they themselves are divided up. For this reason, the British historian E.P. Thompson claims that »it was always a problem to explain the commons with capitalist categories«. Whoever enters into the world of the commons encounters another logic, another language and other categories. In this volume, authors from all continents investigate the anthropological foundations of the commons, and propose them at the same time as concrete utopias (E. Bloch). They make it possible to understand that everything is, or can become, commons: through processes of shared responsibility, in laboratories for self-organization and through freedom in solidarity. Commoners realize that which is already possible today, and will become obvious tomorrow. This is shown by over 40 examples from across the world. This book expands our notions of the possible when it comes to the organization of economics and society. With contributions by Nigel Gibson, Marianne Gronemeyer, Helmut Leitner, Etienne Le Roy, Andreas Weber, Rosa Luxemburg, Anne Salmond, David Sloan Wilson and more.

Abstract

This edited volume provides a comparative analysis of the history of borderland children during the 20th Century. More than their parents, children were envisioned to play a crucial role in bringing about a peaceful Europe. The contributions show the complexity of nationalisation within various spheres of borderland children´s lives and display the dichotomy between nationalist policies and manifest non-national practices of borderland children. Despite the different imaginations of East and West that had influenced peace negotiators after both World Wars, moreover, borderland children in Western and Central Europe invented practices that contributed to the creation of a socially cohesive Europe.

Abstract

The cultural philosophical analysis of the secularization of the exodus contrasts despotic and emancipatory aspects of psychoanalytic, literary and political adaptations of the biblical myth.
