Abstract

Patients travelling abroad to receive medical treatment, healthcare providers wishing to establish their seat or to provide services abroad, and students travelling abroad for education were faced with different barriers which have been declared illegal by the Court of Justice of the European Union. Member States started to use market mechanisms in their welfare systems and this triggered the application of the European internal market and competition rules. Fears related to whether all these would endanger the well-functioning of the welfare services have been raised by Member States. Several conflicts took shape: between national social interests and European Union economic interests; between individual interests and national general interests; between regulation and deregulation, centralization and decentralization. The author shows that behind those fears actually protectionist measures are hidden and that the European Law provides sufficient safeguards for the national welfare systems. In particular academia professionals and practitioners will benefit from the approach taken in this book.   Dr. Laura Nistor is a Policy Officer in the DG Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission, Brussels, Belgium.

Abstract

The position and treatment of asylum seekers has been at the centre of attention in most of the Member States of the EU in recent years. These Member States have decided to cooperate more and more on asylum issues. However, this leads to questions concerning the human rights protection of asylum seekers as a result of EU decisions, both at the moment they apply for asylum at the border and during the application procedure. By bringing the opinions of scholars, policy makers and non-governmental organizations together, this book tries to evaluate the consequences and possibilities. The so-called ˜asylum package' of EU asylum legislation and the coming into force of the Treaty of Lisbon means that EU asylum law will become increasingly important for national asylum decisions.   This book is the updated result of a conference on the future of the European asylum policy at Erasmus School of Law in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. After a challenge set by the Dutch State Secretary for Justice, Ms. Nebahat Albayrak, the contributions to this book focus on human rights aspects of the European asylum policy and the way the EU Member States need to cooperate in the future in order to reach results. The authors are scholars, policy makers and representatives of NGOs. In this way, many different aspects of the problems are put forward and conflicting views on the evaluation of the EU asylum issues come to light.   This book is highly recommended to academics, practitioners, policymakers and NGOs involved in European asylum policy issues.   Flora Goudappel is Associate Professor and Helena Raulus is Lecturer in Law, both at the Erasmus University Rotterdam School of Law, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Abstract

Is the procedural autonomy of EU Member State a myth or a reality? What should this concept be taken to mean? Starting from the analysis of requirements and principles regulating, generally speaking, the relationships between Member States’ and EU law, this book provides a definition of procedural autonomy able to account for the concept’s inherent limits. Out of an analysis of the more relevant EU jurisprudence, the author identifies the rationale underlying the interventions of the ECJ on issues of procedural autonomy and the common logic that emerges from it; and reveals how, in an unchanged context of ‘procedural autonomy’ of the Member States, national procedural law becomes more and more ‘functionalized’ to the requirements of effectiveness of substantive EU law. As such, we should speak of a ‘functionalized procedural competence’ rather than of procedural autonomy. But this is by no means a case of “Paradise Lost.” The book includes a foreword by Prof. Jürgen Schwarze, one of the founding fathers of European Administrative Law.

Abstract

Een actuele (vak)didactische en praktijkgerichte verkenning, bedoeld voor leerkrachten en docenten geschiedenis, pedagogisch begeleiders/adviseurs, (vak)didactici, leerkrachten talen, kunstgeschiedenis en public relations, en iedereen met belangstelling voor het ontwikkelen en stimuleren van 'onderzoekscompetentie'. Competentieontwikkeling, zelfgestuurd leren, vakoverschrijdend onderwijzen, coöperatief leren, projectwerk, portfolio, zelfevaluatie, reflectie, vrije ruimte: deze termen sturen ook in Vlaanderen de actuele onderwijsdiscussies en worden ingezet bij een sociaal-constructivistische invulling van onderwijzen en leren. Dit boek bundelt een aantal voorbeelden uit de Vlaamse onderwijspraktijk die focussen op de ontwikkeling van 'onderzoekscompetentie' op het niveau van het secundair onderwijs. De casussen werden vakoverschrijdend opgezet, met geschiedenis als ankervak. Vandaar de titel: Clio gaat vreemd. Uit de praktijk blijkt immers dat de vaardigheden die samen de historische methode uitmaken, ook buiten het vak op brede basis worden gehanteerd. Er is echter nood aan een duidelijke leerlijn voor de ontwikkeling van onderzoekscompetentie. Die lijn moet lopen van de eerste tot en met de derde graad. De lesuitwerkingen die in dit boek worden voorgesteld, komen daaraan tegemoet. De lijn wordt doorgetrokken tot in het eerste jaar hoger onderwijs, waar dan een elektronische leeromgeving wordt aangewend. Het gehele opzet is ingebed in de ontwikkeling van een historische attitude, gericht op bewust - en dus onderzoekend - en verantwoord maatschappelijk handelen. Dat stelt immers de ontwikkeling van historisch besef voorop én vergt een holistische leeraanpak.

Abstract

This volume contains articles from leading analysts and researchers on sustainable transportation, who provide critical reflections on how automobile-related climate policies have evolved up to now in Europe and around the world, in view of the widely recognized need to substantially curb global emissions of greenhouse gases in the coming decades. Authors describe the policies which have been most effective, outline their economic and social implications, present success stories while critically reviewing less successful examples, and suggest strategies to decarbonize passenger transportation on a global scale.   This book is a treasure chest of insights and nuggets about the future of the car. It brings together many of the world's leading thinkers and analysts to explain how we might navigate toward a secure, low-carbon future. This is a must-read for anyone concerned about the world's precarious dependence on petroleum-guzzling cars.  Daniel Sperling, Professor and Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis, USA   This impressive book proposes a wide range of practical steps that can be taken now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport. It shows how efforts by international bodies, national governments and local communities are all needed to avoid dangerous changes to our planet's climate. The thorough policy analysis and the many good practice examples provide a strong evidence base for political action now.  Jack Short, Secretary-General of the International Transport Forum, Paris, France   Cars and Carbon is essential reading for the world's transportation community. Radically reducing greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles may be the greatest challenge global society faces as it strives to avoid dangerous climate change while extending the benefits of personal mobility. In Cars and Carbon, a superlative group of international experts tackle the problem in its full complexity and offer practical, meaningful solutions.  David L. Greene, Corporate Fellow, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, TN, USA   Any interested researcher, environmental policy student or analyst will find this book very useful in understanding our future climate policy priorities in the transport sector. Rarely does a book offer such deep policy insights; I hope that policymakers study every chapter in detail.            Stavros Dimas, Former European Commissioner for the Environment
