Abstract

Whether increasing life expectancy leads to better health remains still controversial. Three topics are explored: (1) vanguard groups which inform about possible levels of health if the general social and environmental conditions were to approach those of the vanguard group; (2) the social and behavioral determinants of health differentiated into proximal and distal factors; (3) vulnerable groups such as migrants and the health differences between migrant groups. Newly available population-based data as well as new study designs and advanced statistical modelling form the basis for the empirical analyses.

Abstract

Dieses Buch beschäftigt sich mit der Führung von homogenen und multikulturellen Gruppen und der Arbeit in diesen aus der Sicht von BerufseinsteigerInnen. Ziel ist es, einerseits kulturelle Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen Nationen aufzuzeigen und andererseits aus der Untersuchung kulturübergreifender Zusammenarbeit in unterschiedlichen Settings innerhalb der Gruppen und zwischen Gruppenmitgliedern und Nachwuchsführungskräften Erkenntnisse zu gewinnen. Dazu wurde ein Experiment durchgeführt, in dem die Wahrnehmungen und Zuschreibungen von BerufseinsteigerInnen und Graduierten aus Österreich, der Türkei, China und den USA erforscht wurden.

Abstract

Universities are social universes in their own right. They are the site of multiple, complex and diverse social relations, identities, communities, knowledges and practices. At the heart of this book are people enrolling at university for the first time and entering into the broad variety of social relations and contexts entailed in their ‘coming to know’ at, of and through university. By recasting ‘the transition to university’ as simultaneously and necessarily entailing a transition of university — indeed universities — and of their many and varied constitutive relations, structures and practices, the contributors to this book seek to reconceptualise the ‘first-year experience’ in terms of multiple and dynamic processes of dialogue and exchange amongst all participants. They interrogate taken-for-granted understandings of what ‘the university’ is, and consider what universities might yet become.
