    (2010-01-01) Besturingsverandering binnen de gemeente Tubbergen: Regievoeren door het Klant Contact Centrum
    Baveld, Mathias
    Binnen de gemeente Tubbergen is een probleem ontstaan sinds de invoering van de Wet Dwangsom op 1 oktober 2009. Deze wet eist van de gemeente dat alle aanvragen van burgers binnen een maximum van acht weken worden afgehandeld. Wanneer deze doorlooptijd is overschreden kan de burger schriftelijk bezwaar indienen. Dit kan er vervolgens toe leiden dat de gemeente een schadevergoeding moet betalen. Binnen de gemeente Tubbergen is daarom besloten dat de doorlooptijden moeten worden gecontroleerd, of ....................

    (2011-01-01) Grensoverschrijdende criminaliteit : een onderzoek naar de motieven van Enschedese daders voor het plegen van delicten in Gronau
    Veldhuis, L.M.
    Centraal in dit onderzoek staan de beweegredenen voor daders afkomstig uit Enschede om delicten te plegen in Gronau, Duitsland. Er is een vermoeden dat Nederlanders delicten plegen in de Bahnhofstrasse, een straat in het centrum van Gronau. Wat precies de aard en de omvang is van deze delicten is niet bekend, eveneens waarom deze daders nu juist delicten plegen over de grens in Gronau. In dit onderzoek wordt geprobeerd helderheid te scheppen in deze onduidelijkheden. Op die manier ontstaat....................

    -, Sameena
    Today almost 20 percent of India’s 1.2 billion population has access to Internet and social media. 20 percent may seem too little in such a vast population, but India ranks 3rd globally in Internet usage and penetration (IAMAI, 2015). Social media access in particular has also grown with Internet penetration, with over 108 million active Facebook users till date (Statista, 2015). According to TRAI, India’s telecom regulator, 89 percent of Internet subscribers in India access the Internet thr....................
    (2014-01-01) Application of the theory of planned behavior to low-achieving adolescents’ reading behavior in different reading contexts
    , N.
    Low-achieving students are at risk of becoming aliterate. This is partly because of problems with the acquisition of reading skills, but also because they lack the will to read. In this study the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) was used to identify psychological factors that might influence low-achieving students’ reading motivation and behavior separately. We made a distinction between three contexts: reading at school, reading fiction during leisure time and reading informative texts during....................
    (2016-01-01) Transcending knowledge : information technology and innovation consultancy
    , R.
    Every Firm starts with an Idea. Most of the ideas for startups fail to make the transition to a successful company. This is mostly due to lack of preparation, study and analysis from the owner’s side, as they focus on the idea only and neglect other major factors such as people, the startup internal resources, and external forces, that often dictate whether the idea will succeed or fail. For this reason a business plan is essential in this early period. A business plan must focus on the bigger....................

    ?ahin, H. (author); Karalidis, A. (author); Dijt, J.W. (author)
    Systems providing assistance during a biopsy or an autopsy can be found in various medical centers and hospitals, today. Traditionally, CT(computed tomography) and MRI(magnetic resonance imaging) scans are used to produce detailed 3D models and offer support during this procedures. Unfortunately, the high doses of radiation which are involved during a CT scan make the procedure less favorable for a continuous operation. At the Erasmus MC the departments of Pathology, Radiology and Bio-informatic....................
    (2010-12-17) Aircraft Fuselage Design Study: Parametric Modeling, Structural Analysis, Material Evaluation and Optimization for Aircraft Fuselage
    ?en, I. (author)
    The strong search for lightweight materials has become a trend in the aerospace industry. Aircraft manufacturers are responding to this trend and new aerospace materials are introduced to build lighter aircrafts. However material manufacturers, like Tata Steel, are unfamiliar with the determination of running loads and the behavior of materials in fuselage structures. Therefore an evaluation tool is needed for determining the running loads and evaluating the performance of new materials. This wi....................

    ’s Gravemade-Frijters, M.
    In this time period Dutch general hospitals are operating in a dynamic environment. Introduction of regulating market forces and changes in consumer behaviour are important aspects of this environment.

The implementation of strategic and internal marketing offers the opportunity to obtain and hold a proper position in this changing environment for a hospital. The central question for this re....................
    (2011-08-31) Impacts of Forest Land Allocation and Tourism Development on Forest-based Livelihoods in Rural Central Vietnam
    à Campo, J.M.G.
    Many rural livelihoods in Vietnam are still characterized by (extreme) poverty and a low quality of life. Where economic development in Vietnam’s big cities has been booming since the early 1990s, rural areas in the hinterland remain largely undeveloped. Poverty incidence in rural areas is extremely high in Vietnam. Especially ethnic minority groups that tend to live in remote and mountainous forested areas experience high poverty levels. Due to dramatic deforestation and the establishment of ....................

    (2017-05-23) The Effect of Corruption on Bilateral Foreign Direct Investment in Africa
    A. Akinsola
    This research empirically analyses the effect of corruption on both inward and outward foreign direct investment in African economies. Data from the FDI markets database, CEPII gravity database and the World Bank database are combined resulting in a sample of about 225 countries. The random effect model is estimated to analyse how corruption plays a role in either deterring or attracting foreign direct investment. I argue that corruption has a negative effect on FDI and that the type of corrupti....................

    A. Bernard
    Festivalisation is a neologism that describes the proliferation of festivals all around the world. Festivalisation of culture is the specific expression that describes the proliferation of festivals in the cultural sphere, whereby many artforms, from performing arts to visual arts are presented to the public via a festival formula. This research investigates the festivalisation phenomenon from a new point of view. It looks at the way permanent cultural organisations insert themselves in t....................
    (2016-06-22) Social TV: Second Screen and Audience Participation
    A. Borgomastro
    The vast popularity of social networks and mobile devices has led to a transformation of television, called Social television. Specifically, due to technological innovations, both public and commercial broadcasters are trying to respond through developing cross-media processes, expanding the actual content of their TV shows on social media (García-Avilés, 2012). They increasingly provide a growing level of interactivity, which enhance online audience participation in a variety of ways. In ....................

    A. Dimitriou
    This thesis is a qualitative research on the discourses about romantic love of young Cypriot women who are either heavy or non heavy viewers of romantic comedies. Cyprus is an interesting place to undertake such a research about romantic love because despite the fact that its culture is being progressively westernised, it still has great links with traditional values including ideas about romantic love. The research question being addressed is how the discourses of heavy and non-heavy viewers of....................

    A. Groenheijde
    Between 1890 and the start of World War II the United States developed a strong federal antitrust legislation with the Sherman Act and the Clayton Act. In Europe on the other hand cartels thrived and were even stimulated by national governments. World trade was dominated by Europe with a share of 70%, of this share a minimum of 40% was controlled by international cartels. Leading firms in those cartels were European, mostly German. Those cartels harmed US interests and impeded the US war effort ....................

    A. Gudmundsdóttir

It is one of the first qualitative studies to explore sexting from youth’s perspectives. The focus on Icelandic youth provides an excellent opportunity to yield insights into the relative influence of the socio-cultural context due to Iceland’....................

    (2014-12-11) Een rationeel geloof in de Ene!?
    A. Hazenoot
    De rationele verdediging van een geloof in God vormt al eeuwen een steeds weer terug kerende discussie. In deze scriptie wordt in het eerste deel de these van Leibniz dat deze wereld de beste van alle mogelijke werelden is besproken in relatie tot de discussie die hij voerde met twee tijdgenoten. Zijn rationele verdediging werd ook toen al hevig bekritiseerd. In het tweede deel worden de tegengestelde posities die J.L. Mackie en A.C. Plantinga innemen op grond van een zelfde uitgangspunt van d....................
    (2016-10-01) "Athens" Creative Economy and Urban Space
    A. Konomi
    Creative individuals have been seen as key agents of urban regeneration in the age of the new/creative economy and the idea of developing ‘creative clusters’ for these individuals has been seen as policy for urban economic and cultural development. But, what makes one place more attractive to creative enterprises and activities than another? How is the spatial behavior of creative entrepreneurs formed? This study focuses on the dynamics which affect the relationship between creative enterpri....................

    (2015-06-26) Museum Promotion on the Web: A Comparative Study
    A. Kostenko
    This thesis explores the tensions that occur when museums that traditionally hold authority in matters of knowledge face the democratic nature of the Web 2.0. Indeed, nowadays cultural institutions are compelled to go online since it provides them with opportunities to unprecedentedly extend their reach and promote themselves. Nonetheless, in order to succeed, their communication and promotion have to engage online users and be adjusted to the participatory culture of the Web 2.0. A range of stu....................

    A. Parra Vinasco
    After four decades of technological development, video games have reached an extraordinary popularity around the world, and surprising levels of realism and graphicness. Video games have gained a pivotal role in the society and such privilege position has raised questions about its impact on players. The study of violent graphicness as a trigger for real world aggression has dominated the academic sphere of video games research, but the need to understand motivations, perceptions, and reasoning ....................
    (2016-06-21) Professionele zelfreflectie in de Nederlandse journalistiek
    A. Rasenberg
    Journalist is een vrij beroep. Toch werken de meeste journalisten aan de hand van gedeelde normen en waarden en een gevoel van verbondenheid met het vak, waardoor de journalistiek steeds meer professionaliseert. Desondanks klinken er vanuit de maatschappij én vanuit de journalistiek zelf kritische geluiden. Zo heeft journalist Joris Luyendijk gezegd dat het onmogelijk is om 100% objectief verslag te doen vanuit dictatoriale landen. Hier maakte Luyendijk zich niet heel populair bij collega-journ....................

    (2014-12-15) HET LIJDEN OMARMD
    A. Smit
    Hoewel Schopenhauer een uiterst samenhangende metafysica heeft opgebouwd, is de conclusie die hij op basis van zijn metafysica trekt niet houdbaar. Volgens Schopenhauer wordt de wereld gedreven door een blinde, onstuitbare wil die in alles werkzaam is. Hierdoor is de wereld een opeenstapeling van lijden en pijn zonder doel of richting. Volgens Schopenhauer is het daarom nodig om de wil te ontkennen waardoor er een paradijs van zalig niet-willen zal aanbreken. De Franse schrijver Michel Houelleb....................

    A. Tournier
    In dit onderzoek wordt er gekeken welke invloeden geleid hebben tot verschillen in huizenprijzen van de Randstad ten opzichte van Nederland. Daarbij wordt de volgende onderzoeksvraag beantwoord: In hoeverre valt de ontwikkeling van de huizenprijzen in de Randstad toe te schrijven aan economische factoren of aan demografische factoren? Voorgaande onderzoeken hebben uitgewezen dat vooral het inkomen, agglomeratie effecten, voorzieningen en restricties opgelegd door de overheid effect hebben op hui....................

    A. van der Riet
    One way for health communication professionals to reach a large audience with their health message is the Entertainment-Education (E-E) strategy, which means that their message is incorporated in an entertainment program. The most recent E-E production in the Netherlands is the hospital drama serial Centraal Medisch Centrum, which was broadcasted in the last months of 2016 on the commercial channel RTL4.

    A. van Eldik
    International students start a new life in a new country with a new social network. Social media has the potential to aid this process. This study explores the role of social media in the settling-in phase of international freshmen in the Netherlands, offering a broad approach of the different ways in which university students use social media, as this approach seems absent from earlier research. The goal of this study was to distinguish the choice for and use of social media platforms, as well ....................
