This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. This is the era of flexibility. Under constant pressure to be adaptable, organizations increasingly adopt employment practices such as zero-hours contracts, the casualization of the workforce and the use of temporary and agency labour. These flexible practices are central to debates about the changing nature of job quality and its causes, trends and consequences. Arguing that job quality is central to understanding contemporary work, this book explores the internal and external pressures for flexibility in workplaces, professions and sectors and how this pressure shapes workers’ experiences of job quality. By studying job quality dynamics via case studies from organizations and occupations in the UK, Poland, Belgium and Sweden, the volumes illustrates the diversity of practices and experiences, as well as market pressures and institutional arrangements which effect working lives. Finally, the editors propose a policy debate on the new concept "flexiquality" - a combination of flexibility and job quality that can be beneficial for both management and workers.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. This volume brings together papers presented at the Fifth International Conference of the European Historical Bibliographies Project, held in Prague on November 7 - 8, 2013, under the auspices of the Department of Historical Bibliography of the Institute of History of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic. The conference attracted bibliographers, historians and librarians from Denmark, France, Ireland, Lithuania, Germany, Switzerland and from a number of Czech institutions and libraries, who gathered to discuss a wide range of topics. The main theme of the conference was the significance of historical bibliography for historical science. Given the diversity of professional focus among the conference participants, this topic was approached and examined from a variety of viewpoints. The most important outcomes of these meetings were, firstly, explaining the way individual participating organisations dealt with historical bibliography, and, secondly, providing a comparison of different methodological and technological approaches for processing specialized bibliographies in various European countries. This book introduces the wider public to the current shape and prospects of historical bibliography projects across a range of European countries. Obviously, such projects must reflect the needs of their users, which mainly comprise historians and librarians. The ongoing development of historical bibliography does not only involve a technical challenge, but also a methodological one, as well as a societal one when interpreted in a broader context. Mutual communication helps form the future direction of historical bibliography, which will undoubtedly face many new tasks and challenges.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. One of the realities characterizing the globe is the exclusion of marginalized communities in digital transformation. Their exclusion has resulted in a lack of participation in the digital space, which has catastrophic consequences on the digital economy. To promote digital inclusiveness in marginalized communities, there is a need to deconstruct the illusion that digital transformation is an urban phenomenon. Digital Transformation for Promoting Inclusiveness in Marginalized Communities discusses how digital transformation can be utilized to promote inclusiveness in marginalized communities by exploring opportunities and challenges and determining change mechanisms required to enhance digital transformation in marginalized communities. Covering a range of topics such as augmented reality and remote communities, this reference work is ideal for government employees, technologists, policymakers, industry professionals, researchers, scholars, academicians, instructors, and students.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. From Sovereignty to Solidarity seeks to re-imagine human mobility in ways that are de-linked from national sovereignty. Using examples from around the world, the author examines contemporary practices of solidarity to illustrate what such a conceptualization of human mobility looks like. He suggests that urban and local scales, rather than the national scale, is a better way to frame human migration and belonging. The book ultimately proposes that solidarity, rather than sovereignty, offers an alternative approach to imagine how human mobility should, and already does, occur. This book will be relevant to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in disciplines such as Migration Studies, Urban Studies, Human and Political Geography, and Refugee Studies. It is also relevant to researchers, development workers and human rights/environmental activists, and other intellectual practitioners.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. Der von Nora Schmidt, Nikolas Pissis und Gyburg Uhlmann herausgegebene Band widmet sich der Frage, wie Wissen zwischen verschiedenen Akteuren ausgetauscht wird: wie es den Besitzer wechselt, wie es einen Ort verlässt und von einer Zeit in eine andere wandert. Der Austausch von Wissen hat mit ökonomischen, technischen, materialen und wissenschaftlichen Prozessen zu tun, lässt sich aber auf keinen von ihnen reduzieren. 0Die Autorinnen und Autoren des Bandes arbeiten daher mit dem Konzept der Wissensoikonomien: Im Zentrum steht die Vielschichtigkeit der Beziehungsgeflechte und Austauschbeziehungen von Menschen und Materialien, Medien, sozialen Praktiken, Traditionen und Institutionen. Ausgehend von der Beobachtung, dass Transfer von Wissen sich in einer Vielzahl von Modalitäten und Geschwindigkeiten, unter sehr unterschiedlichen Bedingungen und teils über sprachliche, geographische und soziale, religiöse und andere identitätsspezifische Grenzen hinweg ereignet, geht das Konzept der Wissensoikonomien der Frage nach, wann solche Wissensbewegungen selbst systembildenden Charakter erhalten. Damit beschreiben Wissensoikonomien ein Spannungsfeld zwischen Ordnung und Transgression. In sechzehn einzelnen Fachbeiträgen werden komplexe Aushandlungsprozesse von Wissen in unterschiedlichen vormodernen Kulturen vom Alten Ägypten, über die verschiedenen antiken Kulturen des Mittelmeerraums, China und Korea bis in die Frühe Neuzeit aufgezeigt.
