Abstract

In Slovenia, attorneys as a part of the justice system represent an autonomous and independent service that is regulated by law. As set out in the decision of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia, there is no doubt that the legislature has to adopt the law to regulate the attorneys' profession, but in its attempt of such regulation, the legislature always collides with the constitutional requirement that the attorneys are autonomous and independent. Therefore, when regulating the attorneys' profession, the legislature has to address the issues of autonomy and independence and thus also the question of determining attorney tariffs, while certain issues must be left to be autonomously regulated within the attorneys' profession. The attorney tariff does not determine a mandatory price of legal services because an attorney and his client may always reach an agreement that is different from the attorney tariff. However, the tariff is binding when the court decides on the obligation to reimburse the party who has succeeded in a dispute for their attorney costs. With our research, we have empirically demonstrated that the existing attorney tariff in Slovenia unjustifiably drains smaller law firms, which guarantee an efficient coverage of population and smaller undertakings with a network of legal services. As a result, the economic autonomy and independence of law firms are compromised, and the right to effective judicial protection is unjustifiably restricted for the parties who succeed in a dispute.

Abstract

Is science a 'market of ideas'? Not according to the economics of science. Science is competitive, but scientific competition is not market competition. Nor is scientific competition the same as competition between universities. Scientific competition is, first of all, competition between individual scientists. Current science policies shift the boundary between scientific competition, where scientists provide public goods in the hope to acquire status among their peers, and market competition in science, where the results of research are private property protected by patents or other means, in favor of the market. However, the economic ring of the political slogans cannot conceal a serious lack of understanding of scientific competition behind the reform proposals.

Abstract

Gewerkschaften sind einflussreiche Akteure, die das Leben einer Vielzahl von Menschen mitbestimmen. Dennoch befinden sie sich seit längerer Zeit in der Krise. Die Mitglieder, die sie jährlich verlieren, könnten ganze Fußballstadien füllen. Und dies, obwohl die Gewerkschaften in Deutschland zahlreiche Schwachstellen erkannt und etliche Reformen ergriffen haben - allerdings mit zum Teil schwerwiegenden Folgen. Denn viele Modernisierungsversuche riefen neue Probleme hervor, ohne die alten zu lösen. Robert Lorenz fragt: Kann die "Gewerkschaftsdämmerung" der letzten Zeit noch in eine Renaissance umschlagen oder handelt es sich um ein anachronistisches Geschöpf einer vergangenen Epoche?

Abstract

The role of the unions in the process of German unity has so far received little attention. From the beginning, they were among the forces that helped shape the social and economic transformation of East Germany. In the volume's volume, scientists and formerly active people from East and West - starting from their respective different perspectives - consider the possibilities, successes and limits of trade union politics and trade union action. The focus is on trade union contacts before 1989, the phases of upheaval and unification, the work of the Treuhandanstalt and tariff policy. The effects of the transformation process are also elaborated.

Abstract

In the next decades the working world will change fundamentally. What powers affect the labor market? What changes are to be expected? And what does that mean for those involved in labor politics? This conclusive report by the Commission "Work in the Future" – with members from the fields of science, businesses and unions as well as practitioners – presents a diagnosis of the current situation and provides a perspective of the future of work. Particularly, however, the commission offers food for thought on the question how society can master the fast changes so that work in the digital economy guarantees the participation in society and more than mere livelihood.

Abstract

The office work is being completely reorganized in the current digital transformation. Central to this are concepts such as »lean production« and »agile methods«. The book shows the implications of this development for the workforce of employees through case studies from the areas of software development, engineering, metal and electrical industry. A fundamental change in employee work with an uncertain outcome is discernible. Is office work on the digital assembly line or a departure into a new humanization of the world of work? The book provides answers to these questions and shows that the result of development depends on our conscious design.
