For this reason both modelling and application experts were included. The shifts in priorities over the last five years, and the differences in view between the three sectorsare presented. The attitudes towards a range of specific research anddevelopment directions were also assessed


The Man Who Skied Down Everest, Steven Alan Samson Apr 1995

The Man Who Skied Down Everest, Steven Alan Samson

Steven Alan Samson

The skier Miura challenges the inhospitable mountains in a pilgrimage of self-discovery. The ultimate challenge is what brings personality and spirit into the contest, where the artful words are peeled away so that a man may know the instant of exposure called insight. However imperfect the means or the results, we demand this confrontation with our selves.

Social Justice And Political Change: Public Opinion In Capitalist And Post-Communist States, David Mason, James Kluegel, Bernd Wegener Dec 1994

Social Justice And Political Change: Public Opinion In Capitalist And Post-Communist States, David Mason, James Kluegel, Bernd Wegener

David S. Mason

Until recent times, analysis and debate about economic and political justice did not involve research on the views of the common person. Scholars often made assumptions about what common people think is fair, but for the most part they confined their thinking to a single country and argued on rational or moral grounds, with little supporting empirical data. The present volume, involving the collaboration of 30 social scientists in 12 countries, represents the most broad-ranging comparative research to date. The book is the first to grow out of the work of the International Social Justice Project (ISJP), a collaborative study ...

The Odyssey Of The Democratic Right In Post-Franco Spain, Richard M. Skinner Dec 1994

The Odyssey Of The Democratic Right In Post-Franco Spain, Richard M. Skinner

Richard M. Skinner

Unlike their counterparts in most other Western countries, Spanish conservatives have found little success in recent years. Since Spain returned to democracy in 1977, rightist political parties have not won a majority in the Cortes in any election. Instead, the reins of power have been held by, first, the moderate Union de Centro Democratico (UCD), and later by the left-of-center Partido Socialista Obrero Espanol (PSOE). The Right has been hurt by its perceived links to the Franco regime, by its controversial longtime leader, Manuel Fraga Iribarne, and by the PSOE's increasing centrism.

Feminist Resistance In Serbia, Donna M. Hughes Dr., Lepa Mladjenovic, Zorica Mrsevic

Donna M. Hughes

In the last four years the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia has broken apart. Driven by nationalism, the wars in Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia have killed an estimated 300,000 people, wounded another 1,500,00 and forced 4,500,000 people to become refugees. While the world see daily reports of Serbian aggression and nationalist extremism, feminists in Serbia have been protesting all acts of aggression, included that advocated by their own government and supporting the victims of violence.

Right-Wing Extremism Analyzed. A Comparative Analysis Of The Ideologies Of Three Alleged Right-Wing Extremist Parties (Npd, Ndp, Cp'86), Cas Mudde

Cas Mudde

The so-called 'third wave' of right-wing extremism has taken both society and social science by storm. In contrast to the many studies that look for possible explanations for the success of this 'wave', this article focuses on right-wing extremism itself. In the first part, the concept is defined on the basis of the existing literature, as a political ideology that consists of a combination of several features. In the second part, these features are first conceptualized and second used in a comparative analysis of the ideologies of three alleged right-wing extremist parties (the Dutch CP'86, the German NPD and ...
