Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Skandinavistik, Note: 1,0, Friedrich-Schiller-Universitat Jena, Veranstaltung: Skandinavien - Sehnsucht und Realitat, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Through the Global Gender Gap Reports, for the past five years, the World Economic Forum has been quantifying the magnitude of gender-based disparities and tracking their progress over time. By providing a comprehensive framework for benchmarking global gender gaps, the Report reveals those countries that are role models in dividing resources equitably between women and men, regardless of their level of resources"(Schwab / Zahidi 2010: 6). Im Global Gender Gap Report 2010 wird deutlich, dass die skandinavischen Lander auf den Gebieten der Chancengleichheit und Geschlechtergerechtigkeit seit mehreren Jahren Vorreiter sind und den anderen Landern weltweit als benchmark-wurdige Vorbilder dienen (sollten). Warum aber sind die Skandinavier so viel besser als andere europaische Lander? In vorliegender Arbeit wird auf Grundlage der Ergebnisse des Global Gender Gap Reports 2010 eine Analyse und ein Vergleich der Geschlechterlucken in Schweden und in Deutschland angestellt. Nachdem in Kapitel 2 der Global Gender Gap Report 2010 und seine Ergebnisse vorgestellt und diskutiert werden, werden im nachfolgenden Kapitel die soziopolitischen Massnahmen beider Lander den Themen Chancengleichheit und Geschlechtergerechtigkeit zu begegnen, erortert und ein Vergleich gezogen

After the multidimensional financial crisis of 2008, the member states of the Eurozone imposed a set of economic policies to save their economies. Socially unpopular cuts contributed to the occurrence of violent movements that both opposed austerity policies and created animosity towards the politicians who implemented them. Combining qualitative and quantitative comparative analyses from anti-austerity movements in 14 Eurozone states from 2007 to 2015, Joanna Rak develops an original typology of patterns of a culture of political violence to explain why some anti-austerity movements turned to violence and others did not, despite having shared goals and political values. She uncovers the very nature of the differences and similarities between cultures of political violence, identifies their sources, and determines their differing results. Simultaneously, she opens a discussion on the exploratory and explanatory utility of the category of a culture of political violence in the Social Sciences. Theorizing Cultures of Political Violence in Times of Austerity casts new light on the scholarly debate on cultures of political violence and anti-austerity violent behavior, making it a compelling read for scholars of political sociology, political behaviour, comparative politics, European politics, and sociology.

The Routledge Handbook of Entrepreneurship in Developing Economies is a landmark volume that offers a uniquely comprehensive overview of entrepreneurship in developing countries. Addressing the multi-faceted nature of entrepreneurship, chapters explore a vast range of subject areas including education, economic policy, gender and the prevalence and nature of informal sector entrepreneurship. In order to understand the process of new venture creation in developing economies, what it means to be engaged in entrepreneurship in a developing world context must be addressed. This handbook does so by exploring the difficulties, risks and rewards associated with being an entrepreneur, and evaluates the impacts of the environment, relationships, performance and policy dynamics on small and entrepreneurial firms in developing economies. The handbook brings together a unique collection of over forty international researchers who are all actively engaged in studying entrepreneurship in a developing world context. The chapters offer concise but detailed perspectives and explanations on key aspects of the subject across a diverse array of developing economies, spanning Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. In doing so, the chapters highlight the heterogeneity of entrepreneurship in developed economies, and contribute to the on-going policy discourses for managing and promoting entrepreneurial growth in the developing world. The book will be of great interest to scholars, students and policymakers in the areas of development economics, business and management, public policy and development studies.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Entwicklungspolitik, Note: 1,3, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg (Institut fur Politische Wissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Entwicklungstheorien und Entwicklungspolitik, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Situation im subsaharischen Afrika wirft unweigerlich die Frage nach den Ursachen fur diese (Fehl-)Entwicklung auf, deren Klarung essentieller Bestandteil dieser Arbeit ist. Explizit lautet die Frage: Warum kam es trotz etwa einer Billion US$ Entwicklungshilfe in den letzten 50 Jahren zu dieser (Fehl-)Entwicklung Afrikas und worin ruhen Hoffnungen fur das subsaharische Afrika? Die aktuelle Forschungsliteratur geht diesbezuglich weit auseinander. Die linke Seite" sieht Subsahara-Afrika in der Armutsfalle gefangen, aus der es nur durch Entwicklungshilfe zu befreien sei. Die Armutsfalle wird vor allem durch geografische und okologische Faktoren bedingt, wie Krankheiten, extremes Klima, Binnenstaatlichkeit und "Von schlechten Nachbarn umgeben." Dabei sei Staatsversagen vor allem die Folge und weniger die Ursache der wirtschaftlichen Krise. Die Regierungen in Afrika versagen, weil Afrika arm ist." Zu nennen ist hier vor allem Jefrey Sachs' Das Ende der Armut." Die rechte Seite" hingegen sieht das Problem in der Entwicklungshilfe selbst. (Aid is) No longer part of the potential solution, it's part of the problem - in fact aid is the problem." Entwicklungshilfe hatte keine Auswirkung - die Armut wuchs und die Wachstumsraten fielen. Wachstum ware jedoch immer moglich, wenn sich die Gesellschaften, insbesondere die korrupten Regierungen, nur zusammenreissen wurden. Zu nennen sind hier Dead Aid" von Dambisa Moyo und Wir retten die Welt zu Tode" von William Easterly. Diese Arbeit wird versuchen, die Extreme zu vermeiden. Sie wahlt den Weg der Mitte. Entwicklungshilfe reicht allein nicht aus, um einen Umschwung fur die Gesellschaften des subsaharischen Afrikas zu bewirken. Aber sie

Women's earnings are a fraction of male's earnings in several African countries. It is tempting to conclude that this wage gap is a sign of discrimination against women in the labor market. Yet this book uses new datasets to show that the gap is not simply the result of discrimination in the labor markets, but rather the result of multiple factors, including access to education and credit, cultural values and household duties, and, above all, labor market conditions. It shows that gender disparities grow when economies are not functioning well and labor markets are tiny. More than the effect of discrimination, it seems that job rationing causes those with better human capital and those with more power in the household usually the men to take the few jobs that are available. It is hardly surprising, then, that in a region where only a fraction of the labor force finds jobs in the formal sector, gender disparities in earnings are so high. The book further documents that firm-level and sector characteristics are additional powerful factors in explaining the gender disparities in the labor market. As the causes are not simple, neither are the solutions; multifaceted strategies are needed. By providing environments that support economic growth and, more importantly, job creation, as well as by promoting equal access for women to education and rethinking the attitudes that limit what women may achieve, governments in the region will substantially improve the well-being of all their peoples. 'Gender Disparities in Africa's Labor Market' helps to fill the knowledge gap and identify the links between gender disparities and poverty reduction. The work was implemented in collaboration with a range of poverty and labor market studies to maximize its usefulness for policy dialogue in specific countries. This book will be of interest to policy makers, students, academics, gender experts, and all those interested in gender issues and development.
