Abstract

China has made some remarkable achievements during the first three decades of economic reform and opening up, rising to become one of the world’s most dynamic and globally-integrated market economies. Yet there remains much unfinished business on the reform and development agenda, coupled with newly emerging challenges. China: The Next Twenty Years of Reform and Development highlights how the deepening of reforms in critical areas such as domestic factor markets, the exchange rate regime and the health system, combined with the strengthening of channels for effective policy implementation, will enable China to cope with the challenges that lie ahead. These include responding to the pending exhaustion of the unlimited supply of labour; playing a constructive role in reducing global trade imbalances; enhancing firms’ ability to innovate; coping with migration, urbanisation and rising inequalities on scales unknown in world history; and dealing with rising energy and metal demand in an era in which low-carbon growth has become a necessity rather than a choice.

Abstract

"The Chinese economy is currently undergoing a profound institutional transformation—a quiet revolution. In a regulated environment geared to the requirements of state-owned enterprises, the successs of the private sector as the main focus for economic growth is remarkable. State-owned enterprises are currently being restructured based on market conditions in which private firms are now permitted to play an important role. Fascinated by the implications of this reform within the Chinese economy, the Asia-Pacific School of Economics and Management of The Australian National University, in conjunction with the China Center for Economic Research of Peking University research team, conducted a large sample survey. Four study sites were chosen: Beijing, Chengdu, Shunde and Wenzhou. Leading economists analyse the nature and dynamics of private sector reform within the Chinese economy and make recommendations for policy which support opportunities for growth and investment. This work, originally published by Asia Pacific Press, is reproduced here in the interests of maintaining open access to high-quality academic works no longer in print."

Abstract

For reasons of effectiveness, efficiency and equity, Australian law reform should be planned carefully. Academics can and should take the lead in this process. This book collects over 50 discrete law reform recommendations, encapsulated in short, digestible essays written by leading Australian scholars. It emerges from a major conference held at The Australian National University in 2016, which featured intensive discussion among participants from government, practice and the academy. The book is intended to serve as a national focal point for Australian legal innovation. It is divided into six main parts: commercial and corporate law, criminal law and evidence, environmental law, private law, public law, and legal practice and legal education. In addition, Indigenous perspectives on law reform are embedded throughout each part. This collective work—the first of its kind—will be of value to policy makers, media, law reform agencies, academics, practitioners and the judiciary. It provides a bird’s eye view of the current state and the future of law reform in Australia.

Abstract

Die Entstehung und die Entwicklung des Sozialstaates ist eine der bedeutendsten Errungenschaften der Neuzeit. Aufgrund gravierender Veränderungen der wirtschaftlichen und politischen Rahmenbedingungen und der Alterung der Bevölkerungen ist sein wirtschaftliches Fundament gefährdet, aufgrund ideologischer Neuentwicklungen auch seine sozialphilosophische Grundlage. Diese auch den Sozialstaat Bundesrepublik bedrohende Problematik greift der Verfasser auf. Nach einer Darstellung der Entstehung, Entwicklung und Erfolge des Sozialstaates werden seine Grenzen und die aktuelle Diskussion der Krise des Sozialstaates in Deutschland dargestellt. Nach einer Erörterung der Prinzipien des Umbaues des Sozialstaates und einer Skizze der bereits verwirklichten Reformschritte werden der Reformbedarf, die politischen Voraussetzungen für eine Sozialstaatsreform und Reformempfehlungen herausgearbeitet.

Abstract

How has the university been discussed between scientific mission, study and education since the beginning of the Bologna reform? The study examines this question using 1130 articles published in the weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT and the journal Forschung & Lehre in the period from 1999 to 2014 as examples. Thus, the connection between »research and teaching« as a description of the university tasks and its function to save and create identity, is taken into account. Furthermore, the study debates how university members and outsiders describe and evaluate the development of the university. The predominantly qualitative argumentation analyses repeatedly resort to descriptive-quantitative results to. Hence, both individual argumentation patterns and general debates around the subject of the university of the present are viewed upon.

Abstract

Modern education in Thailand started at the end of the nineteenth century under the impulse of King Chulalongkorn. Many scholars tracing back the evolution from traditional education to a modern education system emphasized the feeling of necessity that motivated this transformation. Wyatt (1969), Mead (2004) and Watson (1982) underlined the need for a modern administration, to handle the Siamese nation-state “as” the Western states, and in that respect, the key role played by education to structure the new Siam and to appear to the eyes of the world as civilized (Peleggi 2002). The shaping of a new education took place amidst strong political struggles. Siam needed to stand firm within the regional arena, swept by the winds of Western colonialism. Internally, King Chulalongkorn had to legitimize his power and to unify the kingdom by integrating satellite kingdoms into a wider space, the Siamese nation state. Education was vital for this mission as it would contribute not only to bringing state power into the provinces through state-paid teachers and government officials, but also to transmitting a whole nation-related imagery to the young generations. Giving rise to Thai-ness among the populations located at the margins of the kingdom was a tremendous ordeal. In the Southern part of the kingdom, population was mainly Muslim, spoke Malay and felt culturally closer to the Malay state (Dulyakasem 1991). In the Northern part, incorporating the Lanna kingdom and hill tribe populations into Siam proved not to be easy. Ideological, social and national values were introduced into education delivered to students, and with the implementation of the Compulsory Education Act of 1921, school attendance tied children and parents to the nation state and made them liable to it.

Abstract

In the field of comparative education without a strong theory-driven approach it is hard to go beyond merely listing the similarities and differences that make it possible to create countless rankings, but reveals little about specific and shared developmental processes between education systems. This book introduces a new theoretical framework characterised as Comparative Analytics of Dynamics in Education Politics (CADEP) as an ambitious response to this political, intellectual and scientific problem.&#xD;

Abstract

In diesem Buch wird das Verhältnis zwischen dem Islam und der Moderne, insbesondere aus der muslimischen Perspektive, behandelt. Ausgangspunkt hierfür ist die, vor allem im Westen, weit verbreitete Annahme, der Islam habe den Anschluss an die Moderne verpasst, welche auch als Erklärung für die Rückständigkeit in der muslimischen Welt dient. So soll das muslimische Denken beleuchtet werden, wobei Themen wie Demokratie, Modernisierung, Säkularisierung im Fokus stehen.

Abstract

Lange Zeit stellten die entkoppelten Direktzahlungen ein wichtiges Instrument zur Förderung der Landwirtschaft sowohl in den USA als auch in der EU dar. Ihre Abschaffung in den USA durch die Agrarreform von 2014 markierte den Bruch des bisherigen Trends zur Angleichung der Agrarpolitiken beider Akteure. Die vorliegende Arbeit erklärt mithilfe der Konvergenztheorie die Ursachen für die neu auftretenden Divergenzen. Es werden die Gründe für den Reformdruck in Bezug auf die Direktzahlungen identifiziert sowie die Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen den USA und der EU herausgearbeitet und bewertet. Schließlich werden die Konvergenzmuster untersucht und der Konvergenzprozess erklärt. Der Analyse liegt ein umfassender Vergleich der jeweiligen Entwicklung der Direktzahlungen zugrunde, einschließlich ihrer Behandlung in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur auf beiden Seiten des Atlantiks.

Abstract

This volume brings together the presentations of the 16th Göttingen Workshop on Family Law held on 19 October 2018, which dealt with the latest proposals of the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection on the reform of guardianship law (2nd draft discussion section). At the beginning, the main changes were presented (Thomas Meyer, Heike Wunderlich) before the basic concept of guardianship responsibility in the area of personal care was examined from the perspective of science (Dieter Schwab), child and youth welfare (Helga Oberloskamp) and family jurisdiction (Werner Dürbeck). This was followed by a closer look at the basic principles of the guardian’s asset care (Tobias Fröschle) as well as the guardian's obligation to obtain approval for dispositions of claims and securities (Dagmar Zorn).
