The Europe of elites : a study into the Europeanness of Europe's political and economic elites by Luca Verzichelli( Book )
18 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 204 libraries worldwide
"It has been widely acknowledged that the process of European integration and unification was started and is still pursued as an elite project, designed to put an end to debilitating conflicts and rivalries by consolidating a common power base and by pooling Europe's economic resources. Nevertheless elites have remained the known unknowns of the European integration process. The present volume is designed to change this. Based on surveys of political and economic elites in 18 European countries, it is a comprehensive study of the visions, fears, cognitions and values of members of national parliaments and top business leaders underlying their attitudes towards European integration. It also investigates political and economic elites' embeddedness in transnational networks and their ability to communicate in multicultural settings. The book strongly supports the view of an elitist character of the process of European integration on the one hand, while challenging the idea that European national elites have merged or are even merging into a coherent Eurelite on the other. As the 11 chapters of this book show the process of European integration is much more colourful and even contradictory than concepts of a straight forward normative and structural integration suggest. In particular this process is deeply rooted in, and conditional on, the social and political settings in national contexts. The empirical basis for this book is provided by the data of the international IntUne project, which has for the first time created a comprehensive database combining coordinated surveys of Europe-related attitudes at the elite and general population level."--Publisher's website

Informations- und Wissensverarbeitung in den Sozialwissenschaften Beiträge zur Umsetzung neuer Informationstechnologien ; [eine Publikation des Informationszentrums Sozialwissenschaften (IZ) der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Sozialwissenschaftlicher Institute e.V. (ASI)] by Heinrich Best( Book )
12 editions published in 1994 in German and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Im Rahmen mehrerer Veranstaltungen hat das Informationszentrum Sozial wissenschaften seit 1989 die aktuelle Diskussion um Einsatz und Nutzen von 1 moderner Informationstechnologie in den Sozialwissenschaften gefördert.) Hierbei lassen sich zwei grobe Richtungen bestimmen: Informationssysteme als Datenlieferanten für die Sozialforschung Wissensbasierte Techniken als adäquate sozialwissenschaftliche Infor mationsverarbeitung Beide Themenrichtungen sind sowohl für die Sozialwissenschaften, wie auch für die Informationswissenschaft von hohem aktuellem Interesse, was schließlich den Ausschlag gab, es nicht nur bei den Vorträgen zu belassen, sondern in umfassender systematischer Form diese wenig etablierte Forschungsrichtung einem breiteren Kreis von Interessenten bekannt und zugänglich zu machen. Besonders hervorzuheben ist, daß die informationswissenschaftliche Diskussion zum Teil als Sonderveranstaltungen des Komitees "Wissensverarbeitung - KI und Informationswissenschaft" der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Dokumentation (DGD-KWV) liefen. Aber auch im Rahmen des 26. Deutschen Soziologentages 1992 in Düsseldorf leisteten zwei Ad-Hoc-Gruppen einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Transfer zwischen Sozialwissenschaft und neuerer Informationswissen schaft. Es zeigte sich dann, daß die hier angerissenen Themen zusammen mit weiteren Veranstaltungen des Informationszentrums ein abgerundetes Bil- gestuft nach mehr theoretischen, methodischen und anwendungsbezogenen Gesichtspunkten - ergaben. Wo es notwendig erschien, wurden ergänzende Beiträge noch hinzugefügt
Political elites in the transatlantic crisis ( Book )
10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
The United States and most European countries have experienced an economic-political crisis unmatched in severity since the Great Depression. The crisis discredits the thesis of a nexus between free markets, unending economic growth and liberal democracy. It is obvious that elites - principal decision-makers in powerful public and private organizations at national and supranational levels - have been pivotal actors in this crisis. It has without doubt been the hour of elites. What do elites' responses to the crisis reveal? How are elites altered by it? In whose interests have they acted? Although the authority of elites is always subject to dispute, has the crisis damaged it irreparably? What do decisive actions by non-elected elites and leaders in the Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, European Commission and other institutions mean for democracy? In analyses covering five years of crisis, from 2008 to mid-2013, leading scholars in the field address these questions in order to understand the role of elites in the transatlantic crisis

Parliamentary elites in Central and Eastern Europe : recruitment and representation by Elena V Semenova( Book )
12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
"Legislators are entrusted with key parliamentary functions and are important figures in the decision-making process. Their behaviour as political elites is as much responsible for the failures and successes of the new democracies as their institutional designs and constitutional reforms. This book provides a comparative examination of representative elites and their role in democratic development in post-communist Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). It argues that as the drivers of the transformation process in CEE, individual and collective parliamentary actors matter. The authors provide an in-depth analysis of representatives from eleven national parliaments and explore country-specific features of recruitment and representation. They draw on an integrated dataset of parliamentary elites for individual, party family, and parliamentary variables over the 20 years following the collapse of Communism and develop a common framework for the analysis of variations in democratisation and political professionalisation between parliaments and political parties/party families across CEE. This unique volume will be of interest to students and scholars of comparative politics, elite research, post-communist politics, democratisation, legislative studies, and parliamentary representation."--
