The complex diffusion processes affecting the flow of planning ideas and practices across the globe are illustrated in this book. It raises questions about why and how some ideas and practices attract international attention, and about the invention processes which go on when external influences are woven together with local efforts to meet local specifics and requirements. Initiated to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the journal Planning Theory and Practice in 2009, this book reflects the themes of the journal. Taking different intellectual perspectives, this collection takes a critical look at the international diffusion of planning ideas and practices, their impacts on planning practices in different contexts, on the challenge of ‘situating’ planning practices, and on the ethical and methodological issues of international exchange in the planning field.

Crossing Borders - Integrating Differences is a collection of the papers delivered by psychoanalysts and analytic psychotherapists from the various countries of Europe at the Fifth Conference of the Adult Section of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP), in the year 2005. Held in Dresden, this conference brought together almost 400 analytic psychotherapists from Europe, all of them engaged within the EFPP, through their various national societies, in the different applications of psychoanalytic methods in the public healthcare sector - either in healthcare systems subject to public law or in those run by the state for in-patient and out-patient treatment and during rehabilitation. The theme of the conference "Crossing Borders - Integrating Differences" required the speakers, as psychoanalytic psychotherapists, to give thought to their daily task of crossing borders and integrating differences. This book with all its papers will stimulate the readers to cross borders: between theory and practice, between research and everyday therapy, between out-patient and in-patient psychotherapy, between the view of one's own, the known and the culturally foreign. Yet it is only with an awareness of these borders, an acknowledgement and respect for them, that it will be possible to proceed towards integrating differences, where this makes sense and appears necessary.

This book examines issues that have emerged as higher education systems and individual institutions across East Asia confront and adapt to the changing economic, social, and educational environments in which they now operate. The book’s focus is on how higher education systems learn from each other and on the ways in which they collaborate to address new challenges. The sub-theme that runs through this volume concerns the changing nature of cross-border sharing. In particular, the provision of technical assistance by more industrialized countries to lower and middle income countries has given way to collaborations that place the latter’s participating institutions on a more equal footing.

This book explores the processes of self-understanding that take place in a group of Chinese women studying in universities in the United States. In the past few decades, there has been an increasing number of Chinese women attending U.S. universities, yet their psychological experiences within American culture have not been a focus of study by researchers in higher education. Those who crossed geographic, cultural, and psychological borders to study in the U.S. described their change as a basic psychological process called 'reweaving a fragmented self.' This book contributes to the educator's understanding of the diversity of international women's student experiences, expectations, and desires.

At conferences and in the literature on community interpreting there is one burning issue that reappears constantly: the interpreter s role. What are the norms by which the facilitators of communication shape their role? Is there indeed only one role for the community interpreter or are there several? Is community interpreting aimed at facilitating communication, empowering individuals by giving them a voice or, in wider terms, at redressing the power balance in society? In this volume scholars and practitioners from different countries address these questions, offering a representative sample of ongoing research into community interpreting in the Western world, of interest to all who have a stake in this form of interpreting. The opening chapter establishes the wider contextual and theoretical framework for the debate. It is followed by a section dealing with codes and standards and then moves on to explore the interpreter s role in various different settings: courts and police, healthcare, schools, occupational settings and social services.

Caroline Winslow is a graduate in Economics, who has so far failed to fulfill her potential: to the shock of friends and family she was convicted of shoplifting the day before her final exams. Seemingly happy to 'sit out' her own life, she finds a menial job in a small export firm in London. But fate has in mind other plans for Caroline, and within a few short months she is involved in a passionate affair with an immigrant doctor from Romania and on her way to becoming an unwilling accomplice in a dangerous game.Unexpectedly invited on a business trip to Romania by her boss, Jennifer, the action takes us to that part of Europe still painfully emerging from the grip of Communism. It is here that the tables start to turn, and an innocent trip motivated by personal curiosity starts to become something sinister. While the relationship with her boss and a travel companion has an acceptably professional tone at the beginning of the journey, Caroline increasingly finds herself in the position of subordinate. Unexpectedly, Jennifer takes on a much more dominant, and eventually menacing role. Although a number of unexplained anomalies create a sense of disaster about to happen, Caroline starts to play an internal game of denial against her own instincts: not trusting herself enough to admit her own fears and not quite brave enough to confront Jennifer out-right. 'Crossing Borders' is a novel about how an ordinary girl can be unwittingly led to disaster when the weaknesses of her own character are so cunningly manipulated by another. It is also a story about the desire to be loved and the difficult choices we must make in life. In order to keep the man she loves, Caroline must cross not only the physical and cultural borders which separate countries and peoples; she must traverse the territories of fear and human weakness.

Academics and activists have come together in this edited volume to tackle the complex issues surrounding migration and AIDS. The book sets the agenda for the development of HIV/AIDS prevention and care programme in migrant and minority ethnic communities. Issues covered include: migration patterns; policies for migrant health; legal and human rights issues as they affect mobile populations; racism and stigma; and HIV/AIDS prevention, care and programme evaluation as they pertain to migrant communities. The editors end with an overview of some of the key issues which remain to be addressed. The book identifies foundations on which bridges can be built, attempting to turn away from thinking of migration in terms of 'them ' and 'us', of public health in terms of protection, and from conceptualizing AIDS in terms of the infected and the non-infected. It is hoped that readers will take up the challenge, turn towards groups too often ignored, and ultimately work towards social justice and equity.

Redefining Global Strategy, with a New Preface

Crossing Borders in a World Where Differences Still Matter

New Tools for Succeeding Globally Why do so many global strategies fail--despite companies' powerful brands and other border-crossing advantages? Because a one-size-fits-all strategy no longer stands a chance. When firms believe in the illusions of a "flat" world and the death of distance, they charge across borders as if the globe were one seamless marketplace. But cross-border differences are larger than we assume. Most economic activity--including trade, real and financial investment, tourism, and communication--happens locally, not internationally. In this "semiglobalized" approach, companies can cross borders more profitably by basing their strategies on the geopolitical differences that matter; they must identify the barriers their strategies will have to overcome, and they must build bridges to cross those barriers. Based on rigorous research, Pankaj Ghemawat shows how to create successful strategies and provides practical management tools so you can: Assess the cultural, administrative, geographic, and economic differences between regions at the industry level--and decide which ones require attention Track the implications of the specific border-crossing actions that will impact your company's ability to create value the most Generate superior performance through strategies that are optimized for the three A's: adaptation (adjusting to differences), aggregation (overcoming differences), and arbitrage (exploiting differences) Using in-depth examples, Ghemawat reveals how companies such as Cemex, Toyota, Procter & Gamble, Tata Consultancy Services, IBM, and GE Healthcare are adroitly managing cross-border differences. He also shares examples of other well-known companies that have failed at this challenge. Crucial for any business competing across borders, Redefining Global Strategy will help you make the most of our semiglobalized world.

"This book brings together seven research studies to provide a profile of the HIV prevention, surveillance, and treatment needs of migrant workers. Mishra, Conner, and Magana combine their own extensive work with that of nationally and internationally recognized experts to provide a comprehensive analysis of the HIV epidemic among migrants workers, looking at perceptions of risk, sexual beliefs and practices, effects of migration on changing risk profiles, prevention efforts, and policies and programs that may stem the spread of HIV among this population." "The book is notable for including, in addition to researchers' views, the perspectives of migrant workers and policymakers on HIV prevention policies and programs. It will be a valuable text for introductory and advanced courses on public health, Latino studies, and research methods, as well as a useful reference for migrant health services providers, researchers, and policymakers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Crossing Borders: Constitutional Development and Internationalisation

Essays in Honour of Joachim Jens Hesse


Author: Florian Grotz,Th. A. J. Toonen

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 389949587X

Category: Law

Page: 336

View: 6590

This book is dedicated to Joachim Jens Hesse, a scholar whose multi-faceted work may be characterised as an attempt at "crossing borders" in several respects. These primarily include fostering interdisciplinary cooperation between law, economics and social sciences, analysing public sector developments in an international and intercultural perspective as well as bridging the "gap" between academia and practical politics. Therefore, the volume deals with a subject that covers these features in an exemplary manner: the interrelationship between nation-state constitutions and their international environments. In this context, ongoing processes of transnationalisation have not only contributed to blurring the formerly clear-cut boundaries between these two domains, but also provoked a growing interest in and demand for comparative, interdisciplinary and applied research on constitutional developments.

Crossing Borders explores the question of what happens to theory when it literally crosses borders from one culture to another. The author investigates the histories of reception theory, poststructuralism and deconstruction in postwar Germany and the United States. He looks at how imported theories assume a place in the political discourse of a country, and how indigenous intellectual traditions and prejudices affect, modify, or even distort foreign theories.

Ein unüberlegter Kommentar kann weitreichende Folgen haben. Bei meinem Freund Daniel und mir war es eine Weltreise. Auf eine TV-Reportage über Backpacker folgte ein euphorisches "das machen wir auch!" und ein Jahr später saßen wir im Flieger Richtung Asien. Kein großer Lebenstraum, keine jahrelange Sehnsucht und keine Tagträume von exotischen Orten. Stattdessen eine Idee, die in den Kopf schießt, sich rasant ausbreitet und den bisherigen Lebensplan komplett umschmeißt. Wohnung kündigen, Möbel verkaufen, dem Chef Lebewohl sagen - das Reisefieber ließ rationale Ängste dahinschmelzen. Und so ging es im September 2012 mit Round-The-World-Tickets in den Taschen, dem Rundum-Sorglos-Paket des Tropenarztes im Körper und einem breiten Grinsen auf den Lippen für ein Jahr auf Weltreise. Unser Ziel: Südostasien, Australien, Neuseeland, Französisch Polynesien, Südamerika - kurzum: Immer der Sonne hinterher. Das sind die Fakten und alles andere sind wilde Erinnerungen...

Crossing Borders

Love Between Women in Medieval French and Arabic Literatures


Author: Sahar Amer

Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press

ISBN: 0812201086

View: 8288

Given Christianity's valuation of celibacy and its persistent association of sexuality with the Fall and of women with sin, Western medieval attitudes toward the erotic could not help but be vexed. In contrast, eroticism is explicitly celebrated in a large number of theological, scientific, and literary texts of the medieval Arab Islamicate tradition, where sexuality was positioned at the very heart of religious piety. In Crossing Borders, Sahar Amer turns to the rich body of Arabic sexological writings to focus, in particular, on their open attitude toward erotic love between women. By juxtaposing these Arabic texts with French works, she reveals a medieval French literary discourse on same-sex desire and sexual practices that has gone all but unnoticed. The Arabic tradition on eroticism breaks through into French literary writings on gender and sexuality in often surprising ways, she argues, and she demonstrates how strategies of gender representation deployed in Arabic texts came to be models to imitate, contest, subvert, and at times censor in the West. Amer's analysis reveals Western literary representations of gender in the Middle Ages as cross-cultural, hybrid discourses as she reexamines borders—cultural, linguistic, historical, geographic—not as elements of separation and division but as fluid spaces of cultural exchange, adaptation, and collaboration. Crossing these borders, she salvages key Arabic and French writings on alternative sexual practices from oblivion to give voice to a group that has long been silenced.
