Ee, E.E. (Elmar) van)
Op 24 januari 2012 kondigde de Europese Unie een beëindiging aan van haar missie in Kosovo. Na veertien jaar lang bestuur van de Verenigde Naties en de Europese Unie zijn de meningen verdeeld over het welslagen van de international gemeenschap in het ontwikkelen van een civiele cultuur in Kosovo. Hoewel sommige theoretici enthousiast zijn over de grote mate van institutionalisering en het grote aantal civil society organisaties, benadrukken andere theoretici het feit dat de internationale gemee....................

Plaat, Felicitas G.P.P. van der
In this era of globalization, growing interdependence, global governance, mass media and advanced information technologies the rise of a global civil society could not stay behind. Civil society networks come up to rebalance unequal social, political and economic relationships. This thesis explores the success of the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC), as a civil society movement concerned with the achievement of Education for All in Ghana that functions within the Global Campai....................

This research will focus on understanding the reasons why Italian current cultural
policies, which aim at involving the privates within the cultural sector, are not effective.
Specifically, I want to investigate, following Putnam (1993) and Harrison and
Huntington (2000) researches, if a correlation between the failure of the indirect public
support and a poor culture of giving, mixed with a low-implemented civil society
actually exists. In Italy in fact even if many laws were established w....................

Data generated by internet usage can be used to provide compelling
insights into a range of phenomenon. The model in this paper
uses Google search volumes to predict outbreaks of large scale protest
and civil unrest. A positive shock in the search volumes for certain
key words gives rise to a marked increase in the probability of civil
unrest in the following week. In the absence of sufficient data, it is
not currently possible to establish whether negative Economic growth
shocks in the s....................

De komst van Instant Messaging (IM) heeft op maatschappelijk en sociaal gebied heel wat
teweeg gebracht. Vooral docenten en ouders staan kritisch tegenover dit 1-op-1 medium
waarbij gebruikers synchroon met elkaar kunnen communiceren. Gevreesd wordt dat de
kinderen van nu, de generatie die zo bekend is met IM, ernstig wordt beschadigd door
veelvuldig gebruik. De grootste vrees is dat de schrijfvaardigheid van de jeugd, die volgens de
critici toch al slecht is, zienderogen achteruit zal gaan....................

Rijkhoff, Annelies; Rijt, Dorothy van; Meindertsma, Iris
Is er een andere didactische aanpak nodig voor het ervaringsgerichte vak CKV (Culturele Kunstzinnige Vorming)? Dit is een interessante vraag voor CKV-docenten waarop een kant-en-klaar antwoord niet voor het grijpen ligt. Een verandering van didactische aanpak kan nodig zijn in verband met de door ons veronderstelde verschillen in houding tussen havisten en vwo’ers. Wij hebben aan den lijve ondervonden hoe moeilijk het kan zijn om de grote diversiteit aan leerlingen te interesseren en enthousia....................
|| (2008-01-01) Claiming Indigenous Land Rights from the Bottom Up|
The current situation of dispossession of the Ogiek from their land in Mau
Forest, Kenya is the result of the adoption of the State’s land and other policies
that are similar to those adopted by the colonialist more than a century ago. In
response the Ogiek have instituted several cases through the Kenya courts in
an effort to once again access their ancestral lands. Not only has the Kenya
government introduced land policies that have greatly affected the way of life
of the Ogiek and it ....................

Rommerts, Kay Jagath
In 2001, the Netherlands effectively decriminalized euthanasia in excruciating
situations, but end-of-life decisions and the medical and legal transactions they require
continue to spark debate among politicians, ethicists, lawmakers, and healthcare
professionals. This study examines the ways in which Dutch law, citizens, and state and
civic institutions construct and exert forms of authority on end-of-life decisions and
practice. In doing so, I will examine the legal and ethical discourse ....................
|| (2012-01-01) Claiming security properties in a service oriented architecture|
The rise of service oriented computing as a popular software development paradigm
brings the inability to compose security properties back into the spotlights. Since the
modular nature of services is one of the key concepts within service oriented architectures
(SOAs), a lot of security efforts in this field are rendered useless. This is amplified
by the fact that services are built upon an uncoupled architecture.
Additionally, service oriented systems need to be able to bootstrap trust in ....................
|| (2011-08-31) Claiming Space in Casablanca: Modernist experiments and user-initiated dwelling transformations in Hay Mohammadi.|
This thesis seeks to provide exploratory insights into the transformation, adaptation and adaptation processes of post-WWII modernist mass-housing projects, using Casablanca's laboratory neighbourhoods as a case-study. A historical contextualisation of Casablanca's development depicts a city shaped by the modernist principles of the Athens Charter. Yet, over the space of half a century, the urban tissue has extensively evolved – both from a social and physical perspective – shaped by its inh....................
|| (2014-09-11) Claiming Tibet or claiming Tibetanness? On the relationship between 'Tibet' and national identity|
Unen, Lisanne van
This thesis argues that there is a hegemonic and inflexible discourse on Tibetan identity, though there are examples of dissent. This identity discourse constructs a narrative on ‘Tibet’ which Tibetans claim. In turn, by claiming ‘Tibet’, Tibetans are claiming their own identity. ‘Tibet’ is represented by the government in exile. This constitutive relationship between ‘Tibet’ and ‘Tibetanness’ results in a narrativising of history and an Othering of Shugden practitioners and ....................

In today’s dynamic business environment the success of an organization depends on its ability to react to
various changes, like shifts in the attitudes of customers or the introduction of new laws. Changes in the
business environment can have an impact on the business processes of an organization. The business
processes will have to be able to cope with changes and unpredicted situations.
Business processes can be seen as a collection of activities which are ordered in a particular fashion....................

Jonge, R.D. de
The regulation of chromosome segregation is important to insure equal distribution of genetic material between daughter cells. This research proposal will focus on the regulation of chromosome segregation through the prevention and correction of erroneous kinetochore-microtubule attachments, in particularly merotelic attachments. One possible prevention mechanism of merotelic attachments is clamping of microtubule attachment sites and has been identified in yeast. Clamping orients the attachment....................

The aim of this study was production [m3/s] optimization of the clamshell bucket for stiffer clays. Different aspects of clamshell bucket geometry to clay experiments and bucket concepts are discussed and presented in the report.
The approach of tackling this challenge was first evaluating four main elements ....................

Bruin, Grietje AE de
This thesis will examine the question ‘why are natural languages ambiguous?’ by discussing the function of ambiguity in natural language. Formal linguistic approaches such as the Chomskian approach consider ambiguity as a fault in language design. This view is challenged by functional linguistic approaches, which recognize that ambiguity has a communicative function. Ambiguity can create greater communicative efficiency (Piantadosi, Tily & Gibson, 2012); it enables us to say more with fewer ....................

Business-IT alignment is an important topic with a lot of research and articles written, but there is still much discussion on what alignment is. Using the Generic Framework for Information Management (IM Framework), this thesis aims to define the field of alignment thoroughly by means of a literature review. It does so by mapping influential writings on alignment in the IM framework. The combination
of the reviewed literature is then used for a study on another kind of alignment, the alignment....................
