Abstract

After World War II, tracing and documenting Nazi victims emerged against the background of millions of missing persons and early compensation proceedings. This was a process in which the Allies, international aid organizations, and survivors themselves took part. New archives, documentation centers and tracing bureaus were founded amid the increasing Cold War divide. They gathered documents on Nazi persecution and structured them in specialized collections to provide information on individual fates and their grave repercussions: the loss of relatives, the search for a new home, physical or mental injuries, existential problems, social support and recognition, but also continued exclusion or discrimination. By doing so, institutions involved in this work were inevitably confronted with contentious issues—such as varying political mandates, neutrality vs. solidarity with those formerly persecuted, data protection vs. public interest, and many more. Over time, tracing bureaus and archives changed methods and policies and even expanded their activities, using historical documents for both research and public remembrance. This is the first publication to explore this multifaceted history of tracing and documenting past and present.

Abstract

The EAEA Younger Staff Training is a good example of a successful initiative that encour-ages the professional development of adult education staff, builds new collaborations, and explores the diversity of policy and practice in adult learning in Europe. Organized annually since 2011, the training programme has undergone several modifications over the years to adapt to the changing needs of adult education professionals. The paper looks at the content and structure of the programme, with specific attention to how these have evolved and the rationale behind the changes. It also briefly describes why the training programme continues to be successful and its benefits for both the participants and the organizers.

Abstract

"The public sector in our society has over the past two decades undergone substantial changes, as has the academic field studying Public Administration (PA). In the next twenty years major shifts are further expected to occur in the way futures are anticipated and different cultures are integrated. Practice will be handled in a relevant way, and more disciplines will be engaging in the field of Public Administration. The prominent scholars contributing to this book put forward research strategies and focus on priorities in the field of Public Administration. The volume will also give guidance on how to redesign teaching programmes in the field. This book will provide useful insights to compare and contrast European PA with PA in Europe, and with developments in other parts of the world."

Abstract

In the face of challenges posed by a shifting digital media landscape, an array of international bodies continue to endorse public service media (PSM) as an essential component of democratisation. Yet how can PSM achieve viability in settings where models of media independence and credibility are unfamiliar or rejected by political leaders? The answer lies in a holistic approach that is neither media-centric nor defeatist about PSM’s place in a landscape marked by younger generations’ widespread preference for social media platforms. There are more ways of working towards PSM than are often recognized. Wide-ranging research from media NGOs and academics demonstrates the potential of diverse, incremental approaches to embedding the values and mechanisms of PSM. These are as likely to involve regulatory and licensing institutions, unions of media practitioners, audiences, advocacy groups or social media platforms as content producers themselves. This Policy Brief considers the issues, research and policy options around achieving viability for PSM. It concludes with six recommendations that are relevant to policymakers, practitioners and media studies specialists.

Abstract

Having defined the possible relationships between ecosystem services and local public services, the text focuses on the integrated water service, illustrating the regulatory tools that contemplate the "environmental and resource costs" that each user must bear as a principle. A wide examination of national and international cases on the use of Payments for Ecosystem Services for the management of water in a multifunctional perspective highlights the opportunity to raise this tariff component to finance ecosystem services in the territorial field.

Abstract

The importance of demonstrating the value achieved from IT investments is long established in the Computer Science (CS) and Information Systems (IS) literature. However, emerging technologies such as the ever-changing complex area of cloud computing present new challenges and opportunities for demonstrating how IT investments lead to business value. Recent reviews of extant literature highlights the need for multi-disciplinary research. This research should explore and further develops the conceptualization of value in cloud computing research. In addition, there is a need for research which investigates how IT value manifests itself across the chain of service provision and in inter-organizational scenarios. This open access book will review the state of the art from an IS, Computer Science and Accounting perspective, will introduce and discuss the main techniques for measuring business value for cloud computing in a variety of scenarios, and illustrate these with mini-case studies.

Abstract

Der Austausch zwischen Wissenschaft und Praxis wird aktuell häufig thematisiert: Wie lässt sich Transfer konzeptualisieren und systematisieren? Wie kann ein solcher Transfer konkret aussehen? Was sind Beispiele für Transfer in der Fluchtforschung und was wird aus Beispielfällen sowohl für die Wissenschaft als auch für die Praxis ersichtlich?In diesem Buch wird Transfer zunächst im Sinne einer Wissensmobilisierung konzeptualisiert: als Kommunikation, Beratung oder kooperatives Handeln und Forschen. Daran anschließend greift der Band die Fluchtforschung als Themenbereich heraus und die Autorinnen und Autoren diskutieren Transfer etwa aus Sicht der verschiedenen Bildungsbereiche, der Sozialen Arbeit und der öffentlichen Verwaltung. Fallbeispiele und Erläuterungen bieten einen Einstieg in das Thema und machen Transfer auch außerhalb der eigenen Fachperspektive verständlich. Interviews mit Akteur*innen aus der praktischen Arbeit ergänzen die Beiträge.Der Sammelband richtet sich an alle, die sich aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln mit dem Themenkreisen Transfer und dem Ankommen und der Teilhabe von Geflüchteten beschäftigen – an Entscheidungstragende in den Kommunen und Ländern, Forschende und Forschungsfördernde, Geflüchtete, Ehrenamtliche und Akteur*innen aus der Wirtschaft und der Zivilgesellschaft.

Abstract

This open access book carefully explores the relationship between social democracy and its working-class electorate in Western Europe. Relying on different indicators, it demonstrates an important transformation in the class basis of social democracy. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the working-class vote is strongly fragmented and social democratic parties face competition on multiple fronts for their core electorate – and not only from radical right parties. Starting from a reflection on ‘working-class parties’ and using a sophisticated class schema, the book paints a nuanced and diversified picture of the trajectory of social democracy that goes beyond a simple shift from working-class to middle-class parties. Following a detailed description, the book reviews possible explanations of workers' new voting patterns and emphasizes the crucial changes in parties' ideologies. It closes with a discussion on the role of the working class in social democracy's future electoral strategies.
