    • Jak mohou krize vyvolat změnu paradigmatu v politickém diskurzu o potratech?

      González, María José; Stepanovic, Vera; Boonstra, Maryse (2022)
      Crises and their aftermath effects can have a detrimental impact on gender equality, specifically on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR), which concerns well-being in all matters related to the reproductive system (United Nations Population Fund, 2022), among which abortion services. Crises can contribute to a change in political discourse by exposing faults in the system which may motivate political actors to advocate for policy changes. The effects of crises have often been studied in relation to public opinion or financial impact. However, little is known about the effects of crises on SRHR and the political discourse surrounding this topic. This is despite the fact that SRHR have been recognised as a crucial policy field by organisations such as the UN (United Nations Sustainable Development Group, 2017). This thesis explores how crises can generate a paradigm shift in the political discourse on abortion by conducting a content analysis of the reports and debates on SRHR in the European Parliament during the post-crisis periods of the Eurocrisis and the COVID-19 crisis. The research finds an increased commitment of the European Parliament to abortion accessibility after the COVID-19 crisis. It also shows that this commitment was less present after the Eurocrisis. These findings indicate that...
    • Job strain and adverse health behaviors: The Finnish public sector study

      Kouvonen, Anne; Kivimaki, M.; Vaananen, A.; Heponiemi, T.; Elovainio, M.; Ala-Mursula, L.; Virtanen, M.; Pentti, J.; Linna, A.; Vahtera, J. (2007-01)
      Objective: The objective of this study was to explore the association between job strain and the co-occurrence of adverse health behaviors, smoking; heavy drinking; obesity, and physical inactivity. Methods. The authors studied cross-sectional data of 34,058 female and 8154 male public sector employees. Results: Multinomial logistic regression models adjusted for sex, age, basic education, marital status, and type of job contract showed that high job strain and passive jobs were associated with 1.3 to 1.4 times higher odds of having
    • Keeping on track: Performance profiles of low performers in academic educational tracks

      Reed, H.C.; van Wesel, F.; Ouwehand, C.; Jolles, J. (2015)
      In countries with high differentiation between academic and vocational education, an individual's future prospects are strongly determined by the educational track to which he or she is assigned. This large-scale, cross-sectional study focuses on low-performing students in academic tracks who face being moved to a vocational track. If more is understood about these students, measures could be taken to improve their performance and keep them within academic education. The study investigates performance patterns in academic tracks in the first three years of secondary school in the Netherlands. By identifying patterns that reveal how competence levels in different domains are related at different stages of development and by comparing low performers with other students, the study sheds light on individual and educational aspects that may be amenable to intervention. School grades were analysed for 1596 students. School performance was found to reflect three domains - languages (language of schooling and modern foreign languages), social studies and science and math - that appear to interact in a process of co-construction. General language skills were robustly related to performance in other domains - particularly social studies - throughout the first three years of secondary school. By comparison, proficiency specifically in the language of schooling was less strongly related to social studies and science and math performance after the first year. Suggestions are given as to how educators and curriculum developers could use these insights to accommodate individual and developmental differences and to develop learning materials that may help low performers keep on track.
    • Knowing what to do in social situations: The general factor of personality (GFP) and the performance on situational judgment tests

      Van der Linden, D.; Oostrom, J.K.; Born, M.P.; Van der Molen, H.T.; Serlie, A.W. (2014)
      Two studies examined the general factor of personality (GFP) in relationship to performance on video-based situational tests measuring social knowledge and skills. Study 1 (N = 180 candidates of an assessment center) showed that high-GFP individuals were better able to indicate the appropriate social behavior in a situational judgment test. Moreover, in that study, high-GFP participants were also rated higher by others on leadership skills. Study 2 (N = 153 psychology students) showed that the GFP was related to actual display of social behavior in a situational webcam test. In both studies, high-GFP individuals reported more leadership experience in organizations. These findings support the idea of the GFP as a substantive personality factor that may also be relevant for personnel selection. © 2014 Hogrefe Publishing.
    • Knowledge acquisition and the web

      Schreiber, A.Th. (2013)
      Knowledge-acquisition research started in the eighties as a small research community focusing on knowledge-intensive problems in relatively small domains. In this paper we look at the influence the Web has had on knowledge acquisition and vice versa. To this end we discuss in some depth four topics, namely the ontology language OWL, the vocabulary language SKOS, the notion of ontology alignment and the potential of semantic search. Even from this limited selection of research issues related to Web knowledge it is safe to conclude that the Web has had a large impact on knowledge acquisition, but also the other way around. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

    • Knowledge and tourism

      Edelheim, Johan; Joppe, Marion; Flaherty, Joan; Balslev, Helene (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2022-02-01)
      Tourism as an activity is increasingly being criticised for its exploitative and extractive industrial approaches to business. Yet, it has the power to transform and to regenerate societies, cultures and the environment. The desire to explore the world around us is deeply embedded in many people’s psyche, but it comes at a cost to the environment and often to the residents of the visited communities. Much of tourism education has been closely linked to preparing students for future professional practice, but the challenges and opportunities linked to its consumption require that its future leaders must exhibit very different values and understandings to tackle ever more complex and wicked problems from which tourism cannot dissociate itself.

    • Konflikte in Verhandlungen zu UN-Reformen: Einsichten in den und aus dem Review des Hochrangigen Politischen Forums zu Nachhaltiger Entwicklung

      Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik -SWP- Deutsches Institut für Internationale Politik und Sicherheit; Beisheim, Marianne (DEUBerlin, 2022-03-14)
      Viele Staaten schätzen das Hochrangige Politische Forum zu Nachhaltiger Entwicklung (HLPF) der Vereinten Nationen: Es gilt als wichtiger Ort, an dem Vertreterinnen und Vertreter aus den Hauptstädten, dem UN-System und von Stakeholdern diskutieren, wie die 2030-Agenda und die dort verankerten Ziele für nachhaltige Entwicklung (SDGs) umgesetzt werden. In dieser Studie werden die 2020/21 geführten Verhandlungen unter der UN-Generalversammlung zum HLPF analysiert. Die beabsichtigte Stärkung des HLPF scheiterte an zahlreichen Konflikten im Bereich Umwelt und Entwicklung ebenso wie an übergreifenden Konfliktlinien, welche die internationale Ordnung betreffen. Daraus sollten Schlüsse für zukünftige UN-Reformprozesse gezogen werden. In den Resolutionen wurde im Wesentlichen der Status quo festgeschrieben. Die wenigen inkrementellen Verbesserungen sollten nun aufgegriffen werden. So sollten die Bundesregierung und die EU dafür eintreten, das hochrangige Treffen im Juli besser vorzubereiten und nachzuhalten. Eine wichtige Chance bietet hierfür das neue Koordinierungssegment des UN-Wirtschafts- und Sozialrates (ECOSOC), welches erstmals im Februar 2022 stattfindet. Die Bundesregierung und die EU sollten jährlich eine ambitionierte UN-Strategie entwickeln, die ihre Arbeit im ECOSOC und beim HLPF ein­bezieht. Dabei sollten sie die identifizierten Konfliktthemen im Blick behalten. Der Bericht "Our Common Agenda" des UN-Generalsekretärs, von den UN-Mitgliedstaaten in Auftrag gegeben und im September 2021 publiziert, öffnet ein Gelegenheitsfenster, UN-Reformen voranzutreiben. Anfang 2024, wenn der nächste HLPF-Review ansteht, sollten die Bundes­regierung und die EU ihre Reformvorschläge formuliert haben. Im Rahmen der Allianz für den Multilateralismus sollten sie dafür rechtzeitig werben. (Autorenreferat)
