First, it will ask whether the transformation to capitalist culture has resulted in individualized values that challenge informal social control. The example of Croatia demonstrates how a situation that has been initiated by right-wing elements can be turned into its opposite and can be co-opted by newly emerging and imaginative progressive forces. The wandering in the desert seems to be endless.
Proto-industrial production, finally, meant competition for the other two main forms of industrial organization, the tradition-bound urban craft guilds and the state-sponsored centralized manufactures. New technologies, business models and social practices are rarely developed in isolation, but emerge within a dense network of enterprises, sub-contractors, end users and knowledge-generating institutions. Yet we still need to explore the separate levels of the private versus? The Spring of a New Left? Lang Mark, Karl V. Fiscal decentralization has the most complicated dynamic of all.
Conclusive remarks: a new dawn in the Balkans? Some of these virtues waxed and waned, though not because of any unifying dynamic. That offers a rough measure of industrialization. At first it seemed only as a jeu de mots employed by left-leaning media. For instance, the number of authorized, but not issued shares in a region with no common practice to issue shares or to create such opportunities in advance is not really a useful indicator; also the numbers of preferred shares issued is not very relevant since such issues are very rare, etc.

A possible explanation for this would be that the larger the share of the dominant shareholder, the less he finds it important to disclose information to the general public or the less pressure he feels to do so.
It also demonstrates that a new generation enters politics via direct democratic actions and the street, and not through political channels of electoral democracy and party politics.
Some of these virtues waxed and waned, though not because of any unifying dynamic. The assumed causal relation between neoliberal economic reforms and the promotion of democracy appears, therefore, to be highly problematic.
During 35 days in spring and two weeks in autumn that year more then 20 universities all over Croatia were occupied with students practically running them. The technocratic European Commission - a myth?. In the high school wave, as in the earlier primary school wave, the willingness to raise taxes for school unquestionably raised total schooling, and did not just crowd out private schooling.
This also led to the development of German export markets in Eastern Europe and overseas, where Germany's lower wage levels gave its producers a price advantage over British competitors. As we were warned in Part 1? However, the most crucial problem is related to the method of measuring something which is not directly quantifiable and consists of multiple components of diferring nature.
Julian L. The local ownership strategy in practice means little more than implementing externally dictated reforms but nesting responsibility within the local elites. Building on the opposition be-tween the logic of the gift and that of the market, we elucidate moral tensions that call debt rela-tions into being.

The attempt to measure this, predominantly qualitative attribute, opens a number of issues. Broadly speaking, the industrializing regions of Europe were coterminous with the "proto-industrialized" regions described above, beginning in Northern France and what would be Belgium and then spreading eastward and southward.Croatia, along with many other countries on the Balkans, has long been labelled as a dissident by the international literature.
The other country under analysis, Slovakia, however, is not a self-evident selection at all. What is common in the two countries? On a more abstract level, it is their path-dependent character which binds them together. As editors of this book noted, “due to their similarities and mutual ties, post-Yugoslav countries have much to learn from each other’s experiences with European integrations.
Apart from that, in their experiences, there are lessons for the EU to take in order to get through the current fatigue in its policies towards the Western Balkans.”. Dec 10, · In this interview, Richard Caplan, Professor of International Relations at Oxford University and the editor of the book Exit Strategies and State Building, said that decisions around exit strategies in statebuilding are “generally and fundamentally political in nature.”He cites a few mission exits that have useful lessons, such as from Sierre Leone, East Timor and Kosovo.
The EU stated that "the future of the Western Balkans rests within the European Union". On an economic level, however, the establishment of a market economy and the capability to stand the competition in the single market have been formulated as prerequisites for an EU-accession.
As the contributions to this book from experts of the region demonstrate, strategies to create the demanded.
In his current book, Dudley (in part with co-authors) tries to isolate the effects of information revolutions in the whole grand sweep of the history of the Western World. This project is worthy of Innis and is a logical one for our time, when changes in IT and their societal impacts are so visible.
