    Jarvis, J.
    In previous literature, comparison of social problems and how they directly connect to social inequality in a given country have been performed. Seemingly it is better to live in a country like Sweden, then The United States. Countries similar to Sweden, with low income inequality improves the quality of life of its people; as citizens in more equal societies live longer, have better mental health, and improved chances to a better education regardless of their background.

    (2010-01-01) Cross-border cooperation between North Rhine-Westphalia and the Benelux Union: The flirt of NRW with Benelux Membership
    Andringa, Wouter
    The flirt of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) with Benelux membership is best understood as a mix of garbage-can logic and strategic action. The negotiations for the renewal of the Benelux treaty offered an opportunity for NRW to increase cross-border cooperation (CBC) in the region. Interviews with civil servants working in cross-border networks and government reactions on advisory reports indicate social and cognitive fixations that prevented new forms of regional cooperation. The highly unre....................

    (2013-01-01) Cross-border mobility of European corporations
    Michoudi, T.
    The European Union is premised on the Internal Market, an area without frontiers where the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital is ensured. According to the president of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso: ‘The Single Market has been, and remains the cornerstone of Europe’s integration and sustainable growth.’ That is to say, preserving the Internal Market is a key strategic objective for the European Union. One significant way of achieving this objective is thro....................

    Lops, K.

Telemedicine can be a solution for these challenges. The definition of telemedicine is health care delivered to the individual patient and consultations between health care providers for the purpose of the patients’ treatment with the use of ICT solutions.

    (2011-01-01) Cross-Border Voting in Europe; the Never Ending Story?
    Bosch, B.
    Barriers to cross-border voting hamper both the freedom of capital and the existing corporate governance framework in the EU. This has long been recognized by policymakers, still European legislation has so far not taken the necessary steps to create a functioning system that guarantees investors the facilitation of their cross-border voting rights. Currently the European Commission is in the process of drafting a directive on cross-border securities holding. Again, one of the main aims of this ....................

    (2013-01-01) Cross-cultural analysis of the allocation of power.
    Grient, Rebecca van der
    Powerful people are found in every culture. Why do people follow them? And how do they get power? In this thesis I examine what the factors are that influence the way people allocate power to other people across cultures by using different cultural dimensions. Cultural orientation shows that there are four distinct patterns of power allocation, depending on social relationships and hierarchy. Power distance shows that norms determine how power is allocated in different societies. Lastly, cultur....................
    (2012-01-01) Cross-cultural code switching and its impact in individual negotiation performance of an individual.
    Zylverberg, J.
    The aim of this paper is to understand how and if negative emotions (psychological toll) resulting from the effort of an individual to engage in culturally adaptive behavior, during a cross-cultural interaction can influence the outcome of a cross-cultural negotiation. In order to do so, Molinsky's model (2007)for the prediction of psychological toll during cross-cultural code-switching was used as foundation for the proposition of a new model. The research also run an initial evaluationof the ....................

    Schoenmakers , D. A.
    Cross-cultural studies of management control systems (MCS) suggest that national differences have a significant impact on management control systems design. These studies are however divided and founded on different and sometimes underdeveloped methodologies. The purpose of this paper is to review developments since Harrison and McKinnon (1999) reviewed the current state in Accounting, Organizations and Society. It will show that the subject area still has not outgrown its infancy stage. Further....................
    (2014-01-01) Cross-cultural research of the pointing gesture in twelve months old Italian and Dutch infants
    Hoeven, H.. van
    Declarative pointing is a species-specific and universal human gesture, which can be seen as one of the most important milestones in early social-cognitive and language development during infancy. Despite the large number of studies on pointing, cultural influences are only partially explored (Salomo & Liszkowski, 2013). The main aim of this study is to investigate if the ‘gesture-richness’ of a culture influences the performance on declarative pointing for Italian children compared to Dutch....................
    (2008-01-01) Cross-cultural studies of attributions and emotions.
    Soon-Young , C.
    Growing cross-cultural evidence suggests that attribution patterns reflect implicit theories of agency acquired from dominant cultural construct in which individuals are socialized. In this study, we hypothesized that cultures differ not only in attribution patterns but also in emotional experiences inherent to certain attribution style. With a group of the Dutch students and two groups of Korean students, we investigated patterns of attributions and consequent emotional experiences in two cu....................

    (2015-02-26) Cross-culturele analyse naar beleefdheid in verzoeken in Nederlands en Italiaans
    Prete, A.
    This final paper provides research on the differences and similarities in expressing politeness in Dutch and Italian. This kind of research is covered by the cross-cultural pragmatics. Politeness in linguistics has a long history and begins with the concept of face-keeping of Goffman (1955), who states that everyone has their own "face" that may be threatened in a conversation with the other. Moreover, the concept of Brown and Levinson (1987) is either well-known, which is about the politeness s....................
