Mehdi Shafaeddin Competitiveness and Development. Myth and Realities

In 'Competitiveness and Development', the author explains the confusion surrounding the concept of competitiveness in the context of developing countries; proposes policies for achieving competitiveness at a high level of development; examines its possibilities and constraints; and suggests policy changes necessary at the national and international levels. Shafaeddin illustrates how developed countries impose restrictive policies on developing countries through international financial institutions and the WTO, as well as regional and bilateral agreements, which limit their policy space for promoting dynamic comparative advantage in order to achieve competitiveness at a high level of development. Ultimately, such policies lock developing countries that are at early stages of development in specialization based on static comparative advantage and competitiveness at a low level of development.

Goran Batic The Question of National Identity of Bosnia and Herzegovina

For Bosnia and Herzegovina, the beginning of the 1990's meant a period of nationalistic projects within the country. Three sides were created, and the relevance of ethno-religious origin was high as never before - strong attachments to the ethnic and religious identities. Croats aligned with the Croat Defence Council (HVO), Serbs with the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) and Muslims with the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ArBiH). However, there were exceptions / resistance discourses to the general trend of division along ethno-national lines. It is exactly this exception the author finds worth investigating. Tempted by the appealing controversial quality of a research on those exceptions, and in hope to reveal elements of a hypothetical, 'all encompassing' national identity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the author pursues a micro study of non-Muslim soldiers in the Army of BiH.

Lejla Dizdarevic, Habib Alipour Tourism Planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Tourism planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina is an original and innovative book which resulted from 11 months long research. It examines the theoretical dimension of tourism planning approaches emphasizing the importance of two important dimensions, sustainability and community involvement. The author sets out to investigate institutions responsible for tourism development and to test possibility of application of "Third Way" model of tourism planning in the country. The findings show that the concept of tourism planning is well understood but remained a theoretical percept rather than an implementable practice. Furthermore, the present situation can be attributed to the political complexity of the economies in transitions and reluctance of the officials to commit themselves to a planning process which require responsibilities and sacrifices. The book gives chance to readers to draw clear picture of tourism potentials and problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The book is aimed to all those interested in tourism planning worldwide and especially tourism planning authorities in B&H with hope to be of great help in their future tourism planning practices and approaches

Kusturica Lejla Others in Post-Dayton Bosnia and Herzegovina

"This work will deal with one of the most challenging problems of modern Bosnia and Herzegovina - the political irrelevance and discriminatory status of the so-called "Others" within the constitutional set-up of the country. The abstract, individual citizen as the basic holder of political rights is practically irrelevant in everyday political life. The state is effectively ruled by the collectives of the so-called constituent peoples (Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs). The constituent peoples are the key holders of all political rights and dominate all political processes, making it virtually impossible for all other citizens who do not belong or do not wish to belong to any of the constituent peoples to execute any significant political power in the country. The Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina defines them as Others." Many attempts for constitutional reforms have failed and country has been deadlocked for many years now. This work will explore how upcoming census and implementation of the Sejdić-Finci verdict by European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg could affect the current political situation and possibility for establishment of Bosnian Identity.

Karsten Jennissen An evaluation of the relevance of corporate venture capital investment as a means for diversified high technology concerns to sustain competitiveness

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This paper evaluates how corporate venture capital investment can contribute to sustaining the competitiveness of large high technology concerns. In the first section the author sets the framework by explaining terminology in the context of technolgy and innovation as well as the market for technology companies. In addition, general issues regarding technology companies and their market environment are discussed. To obtain a means of evaluation, then issue of competitiveness of high technology concerns in the current market situation is examined in general. Competitiveness is discussed and explained by reviewing a substantial amout of literature along a framework developed by Feurer and Chaharbaghi. The chapter culminates in developing an approach to sustaining competitiveness for high technology concerns. As the aspects that determine competitiveness cover a broad spectrum, this section is the main part of the paper. Once an approach to sustaining competitiveness has been developed the third and last part examines in which way the efforts of high technology concerns to sustain competitiveness are advanced by corporate venture capital investment. Essentially, the conclusions drawn do not negate the effect of corporate venture capital, but set a limited and consise scope for corporate venture capital investment.

Narazani Edlira, Basic Sanela, Stojilovska Ana Migration and Empowerment of Women in the Western Balkans

The book provides an analysis of the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in traditionally patriarchal societies in three Western Balkan countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia. The study focuses on the household unit and examines the positions of women with and without migration experience in their families. Research findings suggest that the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in three selected dimensions (socio-cultural, economic and domestic decision making) depends crucially on the personal ability of each individual woman to consider the migration experience in light of the complex interface of socio-economic factors in both home and host countries.

The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume II. Economic Development and Public Policy Challenges

Caribbean economies have been faced with mounting challenges arising from the increasing pace of economic globalization. The financial crisis of 2007 further exacerbated economic instability due to high foreign debt, lack of competitiveness, declining productivity, and high unemployment and underemployment. This in turn has precipitated increasing social and environmental problems, including poverty, inequality, crime and violence, and environmental degradation, all of which require new perspectives and policy approaches for transformative change and sustainable development. In this two volume multidisciplinary edited book The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume I provides scholars and practitioners with alternative theoretical perspectives and concrete policy recommendations, while Volume II discusses economic, industrial, and social problems facing the Caribbean along with pragmatic proposals to successfully deal with these, while building local resilience and enhancing institutional strength in the region.

Stephan Hiller The Single European Market for Electricity

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, University of Applied Sciences Hof, language: English, abstract: Energy is one of nowadays most frequently discussed issues. It becomes a more and more crucial factor for growth and competitiveness in Europe as well as worldwide. Dependable energy services at reasonable prices for business and household customers are essential elements for the economic and social development in the European Union (EU). In this context, a well-functioning Single European Market (SEM) is Europe's key to meet today's three main challenges in the energy sector: competitiveness, sustainability and security of supply. As a matter of fact, the way towards a SEM for energy is long and complex. A multitude of aspects play important roles. Outlining all of them would go far beyond the scope of this work. In consequence, this paper focuses on electricity only, leaving out the gas sector. Moreover, emphasis is put on the fundamental EU legislation and the development of the Regional Initiatives as a means to facilitate market integration. Topics of equal importance such as the technical requirements and prerequisites for the general market design had to be excluded from this composition.

Alina Zubkovych Dealing with the Yugoslav Past. Exhibition Reflections in the Successor States

This fascinating book analyzes the socialist past as represented in the national history museums of the majority of the former Yugoslav states. While traveling to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, and Macedonia, the study elucidates the strategies of constructing the national narratives that maintain and legitimize the particular vision of the common past. The cross-national comparison allows to extract the main tendencies in visual interpretation of the socialist past. The existence of the diverse opinions with the further possibility of displaying them in the public space has tremendous importance for the democratic development of the state and, consequently, the analysis of the exhibitions representing the socialist past in multiparadigmatic ways is the promising tool for the identification of both the memory politics in the region and the extent to which political actors are interfering in the given field.

Nagy K. Hanna Mastering Digital Transformation. Towards a Smarter Society, Economy, City and Nation

The information and communication technology revolution offers the promise of transforming economies and societies, and the risks of missing on a powerful techno-economic revolution and wasting scarce resources without much developmental impact. Some countries have mastered the process of digital transformation, and continue to realize substantial economic benefits. Others made substantial investments in the ICT infrastructure, with marginal impact. What makes for these differences among countries? Nagy Hanna presents a systematic approach to integrate ICT into development policies and programs across sectors of economy and society. This book bridges the current disconnect between the ICT specialists and their development counterparts in various sectors so as to harness the ongoing ICT revolution to maximize development impact and minimize downside risks. Posing a holistic and strategic framework that draws on lessons learned across all sectors to guide national leaders and development practitioners interested in moving from vision to action, it is an important work for researchers and students of ICT who aim to pursue innovative, inclusive and sustainable development paradigms.

Akampurira Abraham Development Economics. An Aspect of Development

Development economics entail all the aspects of the development process especially meant for the developing countries to overcome the challenges that impede development. This can be through education, education and man power development, restructuring market incentives, incorporating favorable social and political approaches and practices among other factors.Human beings however need streamlined social and economic systems that are able to achieve development through major changes in social structures, national institutions, cultures and attitudes as well as eradication of poverty, reduction of income inequality and acceleration of economic growth. The developing world needs a multi-disciplinary approach and ideas so as to come out of the economic backward situation. Micheal, P describes that because of heterogeneity of the developing world, and the complexity of the development process, development economics must be eclectic, attempting to combine relevant concepts and theories from traditional economics analysis along with new models and broader multi-disciplinary approaches from historical and co temporally development experience of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Debraj Ray puts it that development economics studies economics of the developing world and has made excellent use of economic theory, econometrics, anthropology, sociology, political science, biology and demography. It needs a lot more dimensional approach to understand it.

Léonie Schäfer Investigations on Digital Storytelling

New media technologies are enabling users to develop a new generation of applications which move in the centre of gravitation between Theatre, Cinema, Literature, Games, and the Arts. These new type of applications have in common that they employ digital media material to tell stories in an interactive way. The range of applications is wide, with storytelling employed to different degrees and with various tasks. Digital Storytelling finds employment in the transfer of knowledge, for edutainment purposes, product marketing, awareness support, or simply for play and entertainment. However, there is still no clear definition of Digital Story­telling, its components and the dimensions, which permit an assessment of an application and its comparison with others. This would be of advantage for the development and improvement of applications for targeted audiences.With this work I introduce Digital Storytelling as a thematic area in its own right. I aim to offer a Beginners’ Guide to Digital Storytelling, to derive a framework and general guidelines for the development of applications and to provide a foundation for benchmarking of Digital Storytelling applications.

Baraa Al Bitar Risk Management under Shariah Law. Products, Techniques and Competitiveness

This research provides insights on the competitiveness of the Islamic financial industry in relation to conventional finance in the future term by investigating the development and standardization of Islamic finance risk management products and techniques. Additionally, it examines whether Shariah law impedes the innovation and standardization of these products and techniques. The investigation of the topic is carried out on the basis of a descriptive analysis of topic-related literature and internet publications. Furthermore, it is supported by analytical facts and figures from recent studies and financial reports. At the end, the research concludes that the classical Islamic scholars, and not Shariah law, impede the innovation and standardization of Shariah-compliant risk management products and techniques. Despite that issue, the Islamic financial industry with its risk management products and techniques is already competing with conventional finance in the international market as it starts at the point where conventional finance is trying to reach: zero interest rates to stimulate the economies and pure risk management products and techniques, which are not used for speculation

The book is divided into four major parts. Part I covers HDL constructs and synthesis of basic digital circuits. Part II provides an overview of embedded software development with the emphasis on low-level I/O access and drivers. Part III demonstrates the design and development of hardware and software for several complex I/O peripherals, including PS2 keyboard and mouse, a graphic video controller, an audio codec, and an SD (secure digital) card. Part IV provides three case studies of the integration of hardware accelerators, including a custom GCD (greatest common divisor) circuit, a Mandelbrot set fractal circuit, and an audio synthesizer based on DDFS (direct digital frequency synthesis) methodology. The book utilizes FPGA devices, Nios II soft-core processor, and development platform from Altera Co., which is one of the two main FPGA manufactures. Altera has a generous university program that provides free software and discounted prototyping boards for educational institutions (details at http://www.altera.com/university). The two main educational prototyping boards are known as DE1 ($99) and DE2 ($269). All experiments can be implemented and tested with these boards. A board combined with this book becomes a “turn-key” solution for the SoPC design experiments and projects. Most HDL and C codes in the book are device independent and can be adapted by other prototyping boards as long as a board has similar I/O configuration.

Development Naivety and Emergent Insecurities in a Monopolised World. The Politics and Sociology of Development in Contemporary Africa

It is common knowledge that development without security is like a runaway horse. Yet, development in Africa has been plagued by insecurities since the extractive periods of slave trade and colonialism. In spite of political independence and the euphoria of sovereignty as states, Africa has failed to address insecurity, which continues to loom large and to threaten aspirations towards truly inclusive and sustainable development. A consequence has been Africa’s development naivety vis-à-vis the monopolisation of development by the predatory elite actors of the global North and their local facilitators. To salvage the continent from such predation and the insecurities engendered requires novel and innovative imagination and praxis. This book draws from both the haunted landscapes and bitter memories of past exploitations and from the feeding of the insatiable North with African resources and humanity. It brings together essays by a concerned generation of scholars driven by the urgent need for radical decolonisation of African development and its legacies of insecurities. It is handy to students and practitioners in economics, policy studies, political science, development studies, global and African studies.

The essential reference for human development theory, updated and reconceptualized The Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science, a four-volume reference, is the field-defining work to which all others are compared. First published in 1946, and now in its Seventh Edition, the Handbook has long been considered the definitive guide to the field of developmental science. Volume 2: Cognitive Processes describes cognitive development as a relational phenomenon that can be studied only as part of a larger whole of the person and context relational system that sustains it. In this volume, specific domains of cognitive development are contextualized with respect to biological processes and sociocultural contexts. Furthermore, key themes and issues (e.g., the importance of symbolic systems and social understanding) are threaded across multiple chapters, although every each chapter is focused on a different domain within cognitive development. Thus, both within and across chapters, the complexity and interconnectivity of cognitive development are well illuminated. Learn about the inextricable intertwining of perceptual development, motor development, emotional development, and brain development Understand the complexity of cognitive development without misleading simplification, reducing cognitive development to its biological substrates, or viewing it as a passive socialization process Discover how each portion of the developmental process contributes to subsequent cognitive development Examine the multiple processes – such as categorizing, reasoning, thinking, decision making and judgment – that comprise cognition The scholarship within this volume and, as well, across the four volumes of this edition, illustrate that developmental science is in the midst of a very exciting period. There is a paradigm shift that involves increasingly greater understanding of how to describe, explain, and optimize the course of human life for diverse individuals living within diverse contexts. This Handbook is the definitive reference for educators, policy-makers, researchers, students, and practitioners in human development, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and neuroscience.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0, University of Münster, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this paper is to answer this question: How great is the potential of sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) to impact a firm's competitiveness? In other words, can it be considered as something a firm can implement to influence their competitiveness and if so in which way and strength? To assess this, first a theoretical background will be given on SSCM as well as a definition for the underlying concept of competitiveness for this thesis in chapter 2. In chapter 3 an overview of practices that can be accounted to SSCM will be outlined and complemented by research findings that cover the influence of SSCM practices on corporate competitiveness. Factors that are also of relevance to ultimately determine the potential of SSCM shall be included as well. To this theoretical perspective the examination of two practical examples shall be added in chapter 4 in order to be able to discuss the magnitude of SSCM's potential to impact corporate competitiveness in chapter 5. Finally, concluding remarks, the final answer to the initial question as well as an outlook for the future development will be given in chapter 6.Sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) is a growing field of research as well as already implemented by several firms. In order to help a firm determine if SSCM should ...

Urban policy makers are increasingly striving to strengthen the economic competitiveness of their cities. Currently, they do that mainly in the field of the creative knowledge economy – arts, media, entertainment, creative business services, architecture, publishing, design; and ICT, R&D, finance, and law. This book is about the policies that help to realise such objectives: policies driven by classic location theory, cluster policies, ‘creative class’ policies aimed at attracting talent, as well as policies that connect to pathways, place and personal networks. The experiences and policy strategies of 13 city-regions across Europe have been investigated: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Birmingham, Budapest, Dublin, Helsinki, Leipzig, Milan, Munich, Poznan, Riga, Sofia and Toulouse. All have different histories and roles: capital cities and secondary cities; cities with different economies and industries; port-based cities and land-locked cities. And all 13 have different cultural, political and welfare state traditions. Through this wide set of contexts, Place-making and Policies for Competitive Citiescontributes to the debate about the development of creative knowledge cities, their economic growth and competitiveness and advocates the development of context-sensitive tailored approaches. Chapter authors from the 13 European cities rigorously evaluate, reformulate and test assumptions behind old and new policies. This solidly-grounded and policy-focused study on the urban policy of place-making highlights practices for different contexts in managing knowledge-intensive cities and, by drawing on the varied experiences from across Europe, it establishes the state-of-the-art for both academic and policy debates in a fast-moving field.

The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume I. Alternative Perspectives and Policy Implications

Caribbean economies have been faced with mounting challenges arising from the increasing pace of economic globalization. The financial crisis of 2007 further exacerbated economic instability due to high foreign debt, lack of competitiveness, declining productivity, and high unemployment and underemployment. This in turn has precipitated increasing social and environmental problems, including poverty, inequality, crime and violence, and environmental degradation, all of which require new perspectives and policy approaches for transformative change and sustainable development. In this two volume multidisciplinary edited book The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume I provides scholars and practitioners with alternative theoretical perspectives and concrete policy recommendations, while Volume II discusses economic, industrial, and social problems facing the Caribbean along with pragmatic proposals to successfully deal with these, while building local resilience and enhancing institutional strength in the region.

Amanuel Kussia Integration of Population Variables into Rural Development Programs with Ethiopian Case

Scientific Essay from the year 2018 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Demographics, Urban Management, Planning, , language: English, abstract: The main purpose of this essay is to examine the integrations between population variables and rural development in general and food security in particular. A critical review of literature and analysis of secondary data were carried out to understand these dynamic linkages. For all nations, people are the ultimate and the only recipient of development results. Even if the population variables are decisive planning inputs, however, they were ignored and treated as exogenous factors in the process of development planning during the 1950s and 1960s. And so, the resultant problems such as poverty, unemployment, inequality, and other social ills were pervasive and deep-rooted in rural areas of the developing countries. The major reason for this tragedy was belived to be the failure of development theories, policies, and approaches adopted during the 1950s and 60s. It was during the 1970s that the issue of integrating population factors into development planning attracted the attention of some international organizations (such as UN) and vigorously advocated since then. Therefore, so as to balance the pace of the population growth and rural development process, all development actors in Ethiopia should adopt holistic and synergetic approaches in such a way that enhance agricultural productivity and boost investment in rural social a...
