Protecting the Rights of People with Autism in the Fields of Education and Employment: International, European and National Perspectives

Fundamental rights for all people with disabilities, education and employment are key for the inclusion of people with autism. They play as facilitators for the social inclusion of persons with autism and as multipliers for their enjoyment of other fundamental rights. After outlining the international and European dimensions of the legal protection of the rights to education and employment of people with autism, the book provides an in-depth analysis of domestic legislative, judicial and administrative practice of the EU Member States in these fields. Each chapter identifies the good practices on inclusive education and employment of people with autism consistent with principles and obligations enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Articles 24 and 27). The book contains the scientific results of the European Project "Promoting equal rights of people with autism in the field of employment and education" aimed at supporting the implementation of the UN Convention in the fields of inclusive education and employment.

Regulatory Pathways For Smart Grid Development in China

The study's recommendations describe institutional elements in the context of electric power sector regulation and has the objective to increase the understanding of the interdependencies of the institutional elements. In future work, the study results might be employed for designing very specific regulatory policies. The recommendations developed in this study focus primarily on the regulatory framework for smart grids and contains a quite detailed description of how the German electricity markets evolved. It also focuses on the effects of ambitiously expanding generation capacities of renewable energy sources (RES) on established electricity markets. The presented evidence will provide insights on how the regulatory framework in China could be designed to foster smart grids developments in the context of establishing electricity markets and expanding RES generation capacities.

Nils Petter Gleditsch: Pioneer in the Analysis of War and Peace (SpringerBriefs on Pioneers in Science and Practice)

This book presents Nils Petter Gleditsch, a staff member of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO) since 1964, a former editor of the Journal for Peace Research (1983-2010), a former president of the International Studies Association (2008-2009) and the recipient of several academic awards as a pioneer in the scientific analysis of war and peace. This unique anthology covers major themes in his distinguished career as a peace researcher. An autobiographical, critical retrospective puts his work on conflict and peace into a broader context, while a comprehensive bibliography documents his publications over a period of nearly 50 years. Part II documents his wide-ranging contributions on globalization, democratization and liberal peace, on international espionage, environmental security, climate change and conflict and on the decline of war and more generally of violence as a tool in conflict.

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. "Marginality" is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for social innovators in the private sector and non-governmental organizations.

Discrimination at Work

A version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press' new open access publishing program for monographs. Do the United States and France, both post-industrial democracies, differ in their views and laws concerning discrimination? Marie Mercat-Bruns, a Franco-American scholar, examines the differences in how the two countries approach discrimination. Bringing together prominent legal scholars-including Robert Post, Linda Krieger, Martha Minow, Reva Siegel, Susan Sturm, Richard Ford, and others-Mercat-Bruns demonstrates how the two nations have adopted divergent strategies. The United States continues, with mixed success at "colorblind" policies, to deal with issues of diversity in university enrollment, class action sex-discrimination lawsuits, and rampant police violence against African American men and women. In France, the country has banned the full-face veil while making efforts to present itself as a secular republic. Young men and women whose parents and grandparents came from sub-Sahara and North Africa are stuck coping with a society that fails to take into account the barriers to employment and education they face. Discrimination at Work provides an incisive comparative analysis of how the nature of discrimination in both countries has changed, now often hidden, or steeped in deep unconscious bias. While it is rare for employers in both countries to openly discriminate, deep systemic discrimination exists, rooted in structural and environmental causes and the ways each state has dealt with difference in general. Invigorating and incisive, the book examines hot-button issues such as sexual harassment; race, religious and gender discrimination; and equality for LGBT individuals, thereby delivering comparisons meant to further social equality and fundamental human rights across borders.

Accountability in Public Policy Partnerhips

Public-private partnerships have become an important tool for delivering essential public goods, but critics fear that they erode public accountability. Making partnerships more accountable requires a clear understanding of what accountability means for partnerships and which mechanisms can be used to strengthen it. Accountability in Public Policy Partnerships develops a new model of accountability based on principal-agent theory. This model provides a firm normative foundation for accountability demands. At the same time, it shows which accountability standards apply to which kinds of partnerships. Norm-setting partnerships, for example, require strong mechanisms for participation, whereas implementation partnerships must focus on performance evaluation, competitive bidding and beneficiary feedback processes. The accountability model and standards developed in this book provide a guide for partnership practitioners who are developing the governance structures of their partnerships; they serve as benchmarks for evaluating partnerships; and they provide new inputs for the ongoing accountability debates in the public, the corporate and the civil society sectors.

Civil Society and International Governance (Open Access): The Role of Non-State Actors in the EU, Africa, Asia and Middle East (Routledge/GARNET series)

Structures and processes occurring within and between states are no longer the only -- or even the most important - determinants of those political, economic and social developments and dynamics that shape the modern world. Many issues, including the environment, health, crime, drugs, migration and terrorism, can no longer be contained within national boundaries. As a result, it is not always possible to identify the loci for authority and legitimacy, and the role of governments has been called into question. Civil Society anf International Governance critically analyses the increasing impact of nongovernmental organisations and civil society on global and regional governance. Written from the standpoint of advocates of civil society and addressing the role of civil society in relation to the UN, the IMF, the G8 and the WTO, this volume assess the role of various non-state actors from three perspectives: theoretical aspects, civil society interaction with the European Union and civil society and regional governance outside Europe, specifically Africa, East Asia and the Middle East. It demonstrates that civil society's role has been more complex than one defined in terms, essentially, of resistance and includes actual participation in governance as well as multi-facetted contributions to legitimising and democratising global and regional governance. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, international relations, civil society, sociology, European politics and global governance.

Divorce: Your Discovery of Recovery

Proven Professional Advice for Correct Recovery, Financially and Emotionally, With Children or Alone !

With at least one in three marriages ending in divorce, this is an epidemic that affects millions of people in the United States and around the world. When one divorces, it is expected that they will pick themselves up and move on, but this is not as simple as it appears to be. There will be a period of grieving followed by confusion and anguish, and then trying to get back on one's feet.

This guide will help you soften the blow and recover faster from the devastation of a divorce. If you or someone you care about is going through a divorce, you can get professional and valuable tips from this guide that are proven to help indefinitely.

Picture two seeds planted next to one another. They are meant to grow into large trees. They germinate, and their journey begins. The bigger they grow, they more intertwined their roots become and before long, it is difficult to differentiate one from the next. Ideally, this is what a marriage is like. Two people meet, make a commitment to each other to be together for the rest of their days, and they begin to grow together.

Through all the seasons, they are meant to lean on each other and offer support in a way that no other trees can. When there is a drought, they share the water that is in the soil. When there is a flood, they dig in their roots so that neither gets washed away. But what happens when one tree decides it as had enough and wants to move away from the other tree?

After years of being together, roots intertwined, separation is not impossible, but it is difficult. One tree begins to move away, and as it does so, some of the roots get broken, some of the support moves away, and what was a strong unit becomes two weak units.

If you have an active imagination and can picture these trees ripping apart from each other, you can understand the devastation that divorce causes. Divorce is the legal and final separation of marriage. It changes the lives of everyone who were a part of the union, the couple, children and their families. It can be compared to a death in the family. Just as there would be with a death, there needs to be a sense of closure, and recovery from emotional turmoil. Divorce has the added dimension of requiring recovery from the financial turmoil as well.

Read on, and ease the pain.

Women’s Employment Rights Guide

The growing share of women in the workforce has necessitated changes in many of the employment laws that provide workers with certain rights and protections. These laws can often be difficult to understand. In an evolving labor force, it is important for all working women to have and understand the information they need to gain equal and fair access to employment and job advancement opportunities. The Women's Employment Rights Guide presents the major federal laws impacting women who are seeking employment, currently working, facing unemployment, or preparing for retirement. The Guide explains the rights and protections of federal laws, while also offering general information on state and local laws that may apply. In some cases, private sector workers have employment rights that are only provided under state law, such as meal and rest periods and employee access to their work personnel records. Moreover, not every state has such laws.

Society - Water - Technology: A Critical Appraisal of Major Water Engineering Projects (Water Resources Development and Management)

This book presents the results of the Interdisciplinary Research Group "Society - Water - Technology" of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. It describes interdisciplinary evaluation criteria for major water engineering projects (MWEPs) and portrays an application to the Lower Jordan Valley (Middle East) and the Fergana Valley (Central Asia). Both areas are characterised by transboundary conflicts, by challenges due to demographic and climate change and by political and societal pressures. Based on the findings, the book provides recommendations for science and political decisions makers as well as for international financing institutions. In addition, it outlines research gaps from an interdisciplinary perspective. In the past, MWEPs have been used as an instrument to cope with the demands of growing populations and to enhance development progress. Experiences with MWEPs have shown that a purely technical approach has not always brought about the desired results. In many cases, MWEPs have even resulted in negative implications for society and environment. Therefore, improved management strategies and enhanced technologies for a sustainable water resource management system are a prerequisite to meet present and future challenges. And, moreover, the continuous evaluation and optimisation of these measures is, likewise, a must.

Exploring Cultural Identities in Jean Rhys' Fiction

Exploring Cultural Identities in Jean Rhys' Writings seeks to circumscribe Jean Rhys' work within a paradigm that reflects the search for a cultural identity so specific to postcolonial literature. The book carries out an examination of the relationship between hybrid identities, self and otherness and of several situations of existential ambivalence that work on the border between sign (colonial difference) and symbol (imperial authority).
