  • All over Europe, the question of how best to manage and implement the resettleement and reintegration of released prisoners in society has become increasingly important. Transition management requires work in custody as well as cooperation and co-ordination between criminal justice agencies, statutory and voluntary providers and other partners involved in the offender's resettlement and reintegration.The objective of the project "Justice Cooperation Network - European treatment and transition ma-nagement of high-risk offenders" has been to address these questions and to develop effective and efficient management principles, processes and practices for highrisk offenders leaving custody that can be shared and used by the project partners and across Europe. The project team comprises the responsible bodies from four project partner states, Estonia, Finland, Ireland and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Germany). The Ministry of Justice and Prison Service of Belgium, the Ministry of Justice and Public Administration of the Republic of Slovenia, the Ministry of Justice of the Slovak Republic, the Confederation of European Probation (CEP) and the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection in Germany are associated partners in the project.The publication is structured according to the programme of the final conference in Warnemünde in September 2014.

  • This book is an attempt to explore the Igbo values of social justice in terms of social relationships. The philosophical concept of justice is broadened by the Igbo worldview, the core that shows how social relationships are the web of justice, which makes social connectivity indispensable and possible. The principles of these social relationships appear as obvious values of justice among the Igbo people and are examined in the light of Christian ethical values and their relevance explored in forging Christianity in the Igbo land. This book also acknowledges the difficulties involved in inquiring into the Igbo ethical values because of the integration of religious beliefs and ethical conduct and customs. Given the Igbo example of the Igbo-integrated life, justice simply becomes that inner compulsion that motivates the human in his/her relationships with others and with God. Consequently, the traditional Igbo people were able to build a harmonious, peaceful, and social order that ensured social justice in the Igbo communal and social interconnectivity. The author argues that the Igbo example can facilitate the growth of Christianity in the Igbo land.

  • Brazil owes a significant portion of its social and cultural heritage of several West and Central African cultures. Due to his intensive knowledge of the African culture renown ethnomusicologist Gerhard Kubik has studied the presence of African culture phenomena in several research trips in Brazil. His insights and interpretations in areas such as language, music, religion, and social organization lead to entirely new perspectives in terms of the share of Africa in the molding process of new cultures on the other side of the Atlantic. Gerhard Kubik very lively written book is not only a milestone in the study of Afro-Latin and African diaspora cultures, but as it will prove to be a reference for future African and African diaspora culture-related issues.

  • The reversible amorphous-cubic phase transition in GST has already been successfully applied in phase-change memory devices. However, there are proposals that an amorphous-hexagonal-cubic transition could offer the possibility of a tri-state memory device, thereby doubling the current data storage capacity. In this study, the structural, thermal, electronic and optical properties of hexagonal and cubic GST have been simulated from first principles. Although pure GST exhibits superior qualities in terms of speed of transition and thermal stability, several aspects such as the minimization of the writing current and a reduction in the wavelength of the writing laser beam need to be addressed. In this study, the effect of nitrogen doping on the optical and electronic properties of GST has been analyzed from first principles.

  • The romany justice for peace tradition is a work wich looks upon both positive and negative aspects of the roma comunities judgement across the world. All major forms of roma justice are analized by comparison with the common legal procedures not in the line of choosing one over the other, but in terms of learning to accept habbits that are usefull for us all. In this book I talk about both European and North Atlantic ways in wich the roma judgement is carried out. This analysis is based on recognising the common elements between them and revealing the beningn nature of such habits. No more than a complex tradition, in terms of moral values and social usage this book is meant to inspire people both roma and other to acceptance and peace. In terms of beauty and complexity regarding both habits and way of life the roma have a most colourfull existence wich deserves to stand proudly next to it's formal counterpart cultures. Last but not least i would like to thank all who made it possible for a non-roma such as me to complete the present study, my family, my wife, my mother and my dearly departed father R.I.P. Thank you all for beliveing.

  • Negotiating the Disabled Body explores how nonnormative bodies are presented in early Christian literature through the lens of disability studies. In a number of case studies, Solevåg shows how early Christians struggled to come to terms with issues relating to body, health, and dis/ability. These efforts to interpret unruly and extraordinary bodies appear in the texts in a multitude of ways, from healing in the gospels to inflicting disability in the Acts of Peter and from theologizing in Paul’s letters to using disability as invective in Papias. Solevåg uses the concepts of “narrative prosthesis,” gaze and stare, stigma, monster theory, and crip theory to examine early Christian material to reveal the multiple, polyphonous, contradictory ways in which nonnormative bodies appear.

  • Saw Myat Sandy's study deals with theoretical and empirical analysis of the political transitions in former Yugoslavia and Burma, the present day Myanmar. It covers the transition period of both states from the late 1980s until present. The author examines the democratic transition in both states, where the process has been 'unsuccessfully accomplished', i.e. after a very promising beginning sooner or later undermined by the challenges of the transition, which threatened to reverse, what was gained by democratisation. In this dissertation, Saw Myat Sandy argues that the democratic transition in both states became an extended process of transition' because of its multi-ethnic societies. The democratisation in former Yugoslavia led to disintegration, and in Myanmar it is proving to be an intractable one and has become almost un-resolvable to anyone's satisfaction. Myanmar today suffers from on-going political instabilities that cause political and social fragmentations but does not demonstrate that it will fall into conventional Balkan scenarios. This dissertation analyses if Myanmar's political transition will follow the former Yugoslavian fate by using the transition theoretical framework and highlighting the empirical facts on the problems of ethnicity and other political factors that relate to these democratisation processes. The theoretical approaches are based on the 'democratic transition and consolidation theories' argued by Juan J. Linz,...

  • Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Psychology - Work, Business, Organisational and Economic Psychology, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Aschaffenburg, language: English, abstract: Whether people are bargaining for the price of a flower at the florist's around the corner, a teenager is negotiating about the time he has to be home at night or the German Bayer AG is negotiating a $66bn takeover deal with Monsanto, negotiations happen every day for different reasons.Even though we are negotiating every day, there is still a misunderstanding about negotiations that often jeopardizes the outcome of the negotiation. Most people think that negotiating is a sequence of rational decision processes whereas, as a matter of fact, negotiating involves a dimension that is most often underestimated or ignored: emotions. These might be positive emotions like happiness or negative emotions like disappointment and guilt, but what they all have in common is that they significantly impact negotiations.This lack of awareness about the influence of emotions on negotiations often leads to negotiation strategies that ignore emotions, even though, recognizing and using emotions can significantly improve the negotiation experience and results. Based on the assumption that emotions do influence negotiations, this thesis focuses on the question how different emotions influence the negotiation and which skills and knowledge are necessary in order to improve negotiations throu...

  • This book sets out to explore the intersections between matters not frequently yoked in academic discussions: spirituality, social justice, andthe learning of world languages. The contributing authors contend not only that these intersections exist, but that they are the site of issuesand realities that require the attention of language educators and point to avenues of growth for the language teaching profession. The essaysincluded seek to indicate the possibilities of a neglected area of inquiry, not only in terms of theory but also in terms of the practices of languageeducation. Given this aim of opening up fresh questions, the book is arranged so as to show the relevance of the nexus of spiritualityand social justice to teacher education (chapters 3 and 4), language classroom practices (chapters 5 and 6), and the theoretical sources thatinform scholarly discussion of language education (chapters 7 and 8). The opening chapters place these explorations in a larger context byshowing how they fit into existing social contexts and academic discussions.

  • This book examines the challenges to the ICC prosecutions for the northern Uganda conflict and suggests approaches necessary to achieve justice and long-lasting peace in northern Uganda. The analysis is made largely on the basis of the issued warrants against the LRA top commanders. However, in some cases, reference is also made to possible prosecution of other persons if further investigations are carried out. It concludes that whereas the ICC prosecution has been successful in forcing the LRA to the negotiating table, it was clear that the ICC remained a very real obstacle to achieving an end to the conflict. Although justice is necessary in this conflict, where it conflicts with peace, peace should take precedence. It recommends that the Security Council should request the ICC to suspend prosecution to create way for peace.

  • The lessons in this book remind us that we can—and that we must—do better, for the sake of our children, their futures, and the sake of our nation. . . . This volume is a call to action, and I encourage everyone who reads it to take steps to ensure that all Americas children are given an equal chance to succeed. We must all work together to replace the cradle-to-prison pipeline with a pipeline to responsible, productive adulthood. —From the Foreword by Marian Wright Edelman, JD, President and founder, Childrens Defense Fund, Washington, DC «Juvenile Justice: Advancing Research, Policy, and Practice appears at a critical time, when promising juvenile justice reforms are underway in so many jurisdictions across the United States. Sherman and Jacobs, and their impressive array of expert authors, fill a significant gap in the literature, making the current body of juvenile justice research and experience accessible to policy makers, researchers, and funders, and doing so through a practical and positive lens.» —Patrick McCarthy, President and Chief Executive Officer, Annie E. Casey Foundation, Baltimore, MD «Most people have narrow views of what it means to be a delinquent youth. In Juvenile Justice: Advancing Research, Policy, and Practice, Sherman and Jacobs have diligently collected essays from the top experts in the juvenile justice field who tell an empirically based and powerful narrative of who is really in the delinquency system. As this book makes clear, until we ask and answer the right questions, we will remain unable to help the youth most in need.» —Alexander Busansky, President, The National Council on Crime and Delinquency, Oakland, CA A comprehensive reference presenting a rehabilitative, youth- and community-centered vision of juvenile justice Juvenile Justice: Advancing Research, Policy, and Practice brings together experts in juvenile justice, child development, and public health to explore the intersections between juvenile justice and needed development of programs and policies that look out for the health and well-being of the youth who enter this system. This timely book provides a usable framework for imagining juvenile justice systems that emphasize the welfare of juveniles, achieved primarily through connections within their communities. A must-read for professionals working in juvenile courts and within juvenile justice agencies, Juvenile Justice: Advancing Research, Policy, and Practice reflects both the considerable advances and the challenges currently evident in the juvenile justice system, with an emphasis on the development and implementation of policies that can succeed in building a new generation of educated young people able to embrace their potential and build successful futures.

  • A volume in Issues in the Research, Theory, Policy, and Practice of Urban EducationSeries Editors: Denise E. Armstrong, Brock University , and Brenda J. McMahon, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte This edited collection of chapters from invited scholars, explores issues of social justice and micropolitics in educational institutions. More specifically, it examines the ways in which social justice workers navigate, or can navigate, (micro) political systems in their quest to promote social justice. Issues of social justice and micropolitics are particularly important in this day and age as standardizing regimes and polarizing forces continue to erode the already perilous condition of the traditionally disadvantaged. While social justice workers make it a point to acknowledge the plight of the less fortunate, their well-meaning attempts to take action are not always successful. This requires that they acknowledge the realities of the micropolitical environments in which they work, and to take action in these arenas if they are to achieve their social justice goals.The title of the book, Working (With/out) the System, draws attention to the ways in which social justice workers/leaders (teachers, administrators, students, community members) navigate educational institutions and the wider social systems that are not always hospitable to changes that promote social justice. This volume describes the prospects, possibilities and actual practice of working with, working wi...

  • This thesis is a theoretical approach to study the magnetic phase transitions and exchange interactions in the spiral magnet Terbium Manganese Oxide by using group theory. First, we study the magnetic and ferroelectric transitions by considering the symmetry breaking associated with each transition. Second, we write the exchange interactions for the Mn magnetic ions in terms of the magnetic order parameters which are associated with various irreducible representations of the magnetic space group. Third, considering the exchange interactions and single ion anisotropy we examine the interactions on the whole lattice. The most general form of the exchange interactions for Mn atoms in Terbium Manganese Oxide is formulated, including nearest neighbor and next-nearest neighbor interactions. Our phenomenological model also contains antisymmetric terms which lead to a mixing of spin-wave polarizations. Finally, equations of motions for spin waves are derived.

  • What do we know about war crimes and justice? What are the discursive practices through which the dominant images of war crimes, atrocity and justice are understood? In this wide ranging text, Michael J. Shapiro contrasts the justice-related imagery of the war crimes trial (for example the solitary, headphone-wearing defendant at the Hague listening with intent to a catalogue of charges) with ?literary justice?: representations in literature, film, and biographical testimony, raising questions about atrocities and justice that juridical proceedings exclude. By engaging with the ambiguities exposed by the artistic and experiential genres, reading them alongside policy and archival documentation and critical theoretical discourses, Shapiro?s War Crimes, Atrocity, and Justice challenges traditional notions of ?responsibility? in juridical settings. His comparative readings instead encourage a focus on the conditions of possibility for war crimes as they arise from the actions of states, non-state agencies and individuals involved in arms trading, peace keeping, sex trafficking, and law enforcement and adjudication. Theory springs to life as Shapiro draws on examples from legal discourse, literature, media, film, and television, to build a nuanced picture of politics and the problem of justice. It will be of great interest to students of film and media, literature, cultural studies, contemporary philosophy and political science
