This book develops a legal argument as to how persons with intellectual disability can flourish in a liberal setting through the exercise of human rights, even though they are perceived as non-autonomous. Using Ronald Dworkin's theory of liberal equality, it argues that ethical individualism can be modified to accommodate persons with intellectual disability as equals in liberal theory. Current legal practices, the case law of the ECtHR on disability, the provisions of the UNCRPD and a comparative analysis of English and German law are discussed, as well as suggestions for positive measures for persons with intellectual disability. The book will interest academics, human rights activists and legal practitioners in the field of disability rights.

This book illuminates the profound influence of geography on everyday life. Concentrating on the realm of social reproduction – gender, family, education, culture and tradition, race, ethnicity the contributors provide both an articulation of a theory of territory and reproduction and concrete empirical analyses of the evolution of social practices in particular places. At the core of the book’s contribution is the concept of society as a ‘time-space’ fabric, upon which are engraved the processes of political, economic and socio-cultural life. A second distinctive feature of the book is its substantive focus on the relation between territory and social practice. Thirdly, it represents a significant step in the redefinition of the research agenda in human geography.

Deficits in EU and US Mandatory Environmental Information Disclosure

Legal, Comparative Legal and Economic Facets of Pollutant Release Inventories

It is the publicity about the Pollutant Release Inventory’s data which creates an incentive for firms to achieve emission reductions. Accordingly, public access to environmental information constitutes a core characteristic of the aforementioned inventory. Here, in essence, two facets arise. First, with regard to the collection, it is disputed whether such information, which may comprise confidential commercial and industrial information in the EU as well as trade secrets in the US, can be protected under fundamental and constitutional property rights respectively. Second, in the context of dissemination and utilisation, it is arguable whether the information indeed impacts polluters and produces an outcome that secures a certain level of environmental protection. The author responds to the first issue by taking the EU and US jurisdictions into account and strives to analyse how this novel form of Internet disclosure liberates market mechanisms in the quest for effective and efficient emission reductions.

Nach 1989 waren Landkarten plötzlich nicht länger in Mode. Die Grenzen sollten geöffnet werden für Menschen, Güter, Kapital und Ideen. An die Stelle der alten Karten traten Graphiken, welche die ökonomische Verflechtung innerhalb der EU illustrierten. Heute erleben wir einen ideologischen Gezeitenwechsel: Wo die Mehrheit der Europäer noch vor einigen Jahren optimistisch auf die Globalisierung blickte, empfinden sie Migration und die Rückkehr der Geopolitik als Quelle der Unsicherheit. Ivan Krastev untersucht die Ursachen für diesen Wandel und erörtert, welche Formen die europäische Desintegration annehmen könnte. Ein Zerfall der EU, so Krastev, wäre eine Tragödie, die den Kontinent zu internationaler Bedeutungslosigkeit verurteilen würde.

1.1 Fermentation - eine alte Kunst 1m weiteren Sinne wird bei einer Fermentation organische Materie mit Hilfe von Mikroorganismen einer enzymkatalysierten Stoffumwandlung unterwor fen. Die Giirung wurde iiber die Jahrhunderte regelrecht zu einer Kunst wei terentwickelt. Wein ist seit mindestens 10000 v. Chr. bekannt, und die Hi storiker nehmen an, daB die .Agypter bereits zwischen 5000 und 6000 v. Chr. Bier brauten. Sie lie£en Gerste in irdenen Gefa£en ankeimen, zerkleinerten sie, teigten an, buken den Brei und trankten schlief31ich alles mit Wasser. Aus diesem Ansatz entstand dann das Bier. Etwa 4000 v. Chr. verwendeten die .Agypter Brauhefe, um bei der Teigsauerung die Bildung von Kohlen dioxid zu erreichen. Die Azteken in Mexiko ernteten Spirulina Algen aus Teichen mit alkalis chen pH-Werten und verwendeten sie als Lebensmittel. Viele lokal bekannte, fermentativ gewonnene Nahrungsmittel und Saucen in Asien und iiberall auf der Welt werden eindeutig schon seit Tausenden von Jahren hergestellt. Heute wei£ man, daB sie durch Garung, Enzymproduk tion und enzymatische Hydrolyse unter Mithilfe von Oberflachenkulturen gebildet werden. Uber die Umwandlung von Milch in Kase wurde schon 5000 v. Chr. berichtet, als man beobachtete, daB Milch, die in Kalbetmagen transportiert wurde, zum Ausflocken neigte (Kalbermagen enthalten En zyme, die die Milch ausflocken lassen). Essig ist vermutlich bekannt seit Wein hergestellt wird, obgleich die friihesten Zeugnisse tiber Essig aus dem Alten und Neuen Testament stammen. Die friihesten Berichte iiber destil lierte alkoholische Getranke stammen aus China etwa 1000 v. Chr.
