Com- nies,researchinstitutions,andgovernmentalorganizationsfromallmainareasof critical infrastructures took an active part in supporting CRITIS and we found CRITIS 2009 both exciting and informative. The selected papers addressed a range of key issues and demonstrated the ubiquity and global importance of - formation infrastructures. Each paper had at least three independent technical reviews and we accepted 13 full papers out of 34 submissions. We were very fortunate in having a range of invited speakers that c- ered policy, research and industry perspectives. James Smith from Los Alamos National Laboratory addressed the challenges and achievements in their work on Large-Scale Modeling and Simulation of Critical Infrastructure. Orestis Terzidis, Vice President SAP AG, talked on the The Internet for Energy: P- spectives and Challenges. Continuing with the energy theme, Alla Heidenreich, from SIEMENS AG, Corporate Research and Technologies (Germany) provided her insights on the Secure ICT Infrastructure for the Future Power Grid. Critical infrastructure protection is an area where an e?ective private public partnership is required. A government perspective was provided by Michael P- germann, German Ministry of the Interior, who talked on German strategy - garding CIIP.

Magisterial in scope and scrupulous in its investigation and attribution of sources, Church and Ethical Responsibility in the Midst of World Economy will take its place as an important document that contributes much in terms of prophetic praxis--it challenges those who are comfortably complacent and unwilling to be disturbed. ''This book is minjung theology gone global! It is wise, rich, complex, amazingly learned, and passionate in its call for a prophetic Christian approach to global economics.'' --Stephen Bevans, Professor of Mission and Culture, Catholic Theological Union ''Chung provides the reader not only with an overview of Christian thought on capitalism, but also with a lively explication of and conversation with more than a century of secular political and economic perspectives on capitalism. Helpfully, Chung also broadens the religious contributions beyond Christianity, including Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism in the conversation. Students of social ethics, pastors, teachers, and laypeople will all benefit from this informed and timely book.'' --Heidi Hadsel, President and Professor of Social Ethics, Hartford Seminary ''Chung creatively constructs a usable theological tradition to challenge the assumption of the economic status quo as our inevitable future, integrating interreligious and cross-disciplinary resources in the struggle. How can the ecumenical church serve as leaven for imagining and implementing alternatives to global business as usual?'' --Craig L. Nessan, Academic Dean and Professor of Contextual Theology, Wartburg Theological Seminary ''In a situation characterized by global crisis and increasing injustice of the world economy, Chung analyzes the responsibility of the church in the development of modern capitalism. At the same time he describes critical potential within the biblical tradition to enable the church's protest against an unjust world economy. The book represents an important and well-informed contribution to a critique of global capitalism from the perspective of postcolonial theology and economic theory.'' --Andreas Pangritz, Professor of Systematic Theology and Director of the Ecumenical Institute, University of Bonn, Germany ''Challenging shallow sloganeering and simplistic and superficial analysis, Chung offers in this thoughtful and thought-provoking work a serious and sustained investigation of the underpinning and overarching economic structures that are an indispensable part of the world in which we live, a world in which we are constantly impacted by these realities. This is a work that is addressed not only to those who are part of the institution that is called the church, but to all those who are willing to pay heed to, and be transformed by, a movement that was called into being by one who paid with his life for his stance against greed, dominion, and the lack of justice.'' --Rev. Dr. J. Jayakiran Sebastian Dean of the Seminary and H. George Anderson Professor of Mission and Cultures at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia Paul S. Chung is Associate Professor at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota. His books related to a prophetic theology of God's mission, transcultural hermeneutics, and justice in the public sphere include The Cave and the Butterfly (2010) and Liberating Lutheran Theology (together with Ulrich Duchrow and Craig L. Nessan, 2011), among others.

Professor Patrice MANGIN President of the XVlth Congress of the International Academy of Legal Medicine and Social Medicine The International Academy of Legal Medicine and Social Medicine was founded in 1938 in Bonn. The motive for founding the Academy was to promote associating and confronting on an international background the scientific research work produced in the various domains dealing with the Legal and Social Medicine. As first presi dent of the International Academy of Legal Medicine and Social Medicine, Professor Knud Sand from Copenhagen, assisted by colleagues of the Praesidium appointed as national representatives, succeeded in gathering together nearly the whole aca demic people involved in Legal and Social Medicine. Thus one year later, in 1939, The Academy became a worldwide institution of 450 members from thirty nations. After the war, what had been before of considerable interest for the progress of the knowledge and techniques in Legal Medicine remained again a pressing necessity leading to the second meeting of the Academy in 1947 in Brussels under the presi dency of Professor De Laet. Since then the meetings of the Academy followed one another every three years. At this point, I would like to thank all the past presidents of the Academy and in particular Professor Roche and Professor Andre for their contribution without which the Academy would not be what it is presently.

Twelve Cities
10,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Roy Jenkins follows up Churchill with a book of a very different shape; short and semi-autobiographical, but also full of the wit and erudition which make that book such a success. Each of the twelve cities are described with a mixture of architectural interest, topographical insight, and personal anecdote. Jenkins has three British cities: Cardiff, which was the metropolis of his Monmouthshire childhood, Birmingham which he represented in Parliament for 27 years, and Glasgow, which aroused in him an enthusiasm far transcending politics. Further afield there is Paris, Brussels, where he lived for four years as President of the European Commission; Bonn, and Berlin, surveyed from its pre-war splendour, through to its architectural resurgence of the 1990s, Naples and Barcelona. From Lord Jenkins's over a hundred visits to North America there emerge highly personal recollections of New York and a more objective view of the of Chicago. Dublin, so near to home and yet so distant, makes up the dozen. Twelve Cities is a fascinating and sparkling collection from one of our very finest writers

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Politics - Political Systems - General and Comparisons, grade: 1,3, University of Bonn, course: Einführung in die Innenpolitik der USA, 18 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The position of the first lady of the United States is unequalled anywhere. In comparison to the wives of other democratically elected leaders, she has a much larger staff, receives immense public attention and is in charge of a considerable amount of federal money. While in Great Britain for example, public attention focuses on the members of the royal family and not on the prime minister's wife, the American first lady was drawn to a public role from the very beginning of the United States of America on. While upon inauguration, the president of the United States swears to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, what does his wife, the first lady promise? The president might be limited by party issues and political ties, but which factors influence the first lady in fulfilling her position? The U.S. Constitution is silent on the role of the spouse of the president since 'after all, there is only one person that chooses her'1(and maybe someday him). The first lady therefore has no democratic legitimacy, but this has not stopped her from publicly representing the American Nation. Where does the acceptance of the first lady as a spokesperson for the American people come from? These are some of the questions this paper will try to answer. The main attention will focus on possible political weight and/or authority of the first lady. The first part will give an overview over the historical development of the office from 1789 until today, describing important social, political and historical factors which have influenced this process as well as personal influences the first ladies and their husbands have had on their position. The second part will focus on the specific roles that the first ladies have taken over throughout its history and their effect on American politics. Although the early first ladies and their influence on the office will be considered too, the focal point will be on the modern first ladies of the 20thand 21st century. Concerning the spelling of First Lady this paper uses the form of leading first ladies' scholars like Robert P. Watson and use the lower case except when referring directly to a specific first lady.

Competence-based Vocational and Professional Ed...

This book presents a comprehensive overview of extant literature on competence-based vocational and professional education since the introduction of the competence concept in the 1950s. To structure the fi eld, the book distinguishes between three approaches to defi ning competence, based on 1.functional behaviourism, 2. integrated occupationalism, and 3. situated professionalism. It also distinguishes between two ways of operationalizing competence: 1. behaviour-oriented generic, and 2. task-oriented specifi c competence. Lastly, it identifi es three kinds of competencies, related to: 1. specific activities, 2. known jobs, and 3. the unknown future. Competence for the unknown future must receive more attention, as our world is rapidly evolving and there are many 'glocal' challenges which call for innovation and a profound transformation of policies and practices. Th e book presents a range of diff erent approaches to competence-based education, and demonstrates that competencebased education is a worldwide innovation, which is institutionalized in various ways. It presents the major theories and policies, specifi c components of educational systems, such as recognition, accreditation, modelling and assessment, and developments in discipline-oriented and transversal competence domains. Th e book concludes by synthesizing the diff erent perspectives with the intention to contribute to further improving vocational and professional education policy and practice. Joao Santos, Deputy Head of Unit C5, Vocational Training and Adult Education, Directorate General for Employment, Social Aff airs and Inclusion, European Commission: 'This comprehensive work on competence-based education led by Martin Mulder, provides an excellent and timely contribution to the current debate on a New Skills Agenda for Europe, and the challenge of bridging the employment and education and training worlds closer together. Th is book will infl uence our work aimed at improving the relevance of vocational education to support initial and continuing vocational education and training policy and practice aimed at strengthening the key competencies for the 21st century.' Prof. Dr. Reinhold Weiss, Deputy President and Head of the Research, Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB), Bonn, Germany: 'This book illustrates that the idea and concept of competence is not only a buzzword in educational debates but key to innovative pedagogical thinking as well as educational practice.' Prof. Dr. Johanna Lasonen, College of Education, University of South Florida, Tampa, USA: 'Competence-based Vocational and Professional Education is one of the most important multi-disciplinary book in education and training. Th is path-breaking book off ers a timely, rich and global perspective on the fi eld. Th e book is a good resource for practitioners, policymakers and researchers.'
