BEYOND THE PILOT PROJECT: CHALLENGES FOR INSTITUTIONALISATION
At present we can see a large number of projects practicing various forms of PPB, all of them being quite successful so far (case studies in this publication, Ashby & Lilja, 2004).
Again, however, an appropriate comparisons
needs to take account of the fact that the SEC took place four years later and the process of cohort
succession would affect results in the same way as was noted for literacy with respect to comparisons
with the census. Thus when DHS results are calculated for persons aged 56 and older (who would be 60
and older in 2004) and limited to the provinces covered by the SEC sample, the percentages who ever
attended school are reasonably similar in the two sources.
Overall the comparison of basic demographic characteristics from the 2004...
.ANIMALS, DISEASE AND HUMAN SOCIETY
In recent years, the issue of animal disease has seldom been out of the headlines. The emergence of BSE and the threat of food-borne infections such as E.coli and salmonella have focused public attention on the impact of animal disease on human society. However, the problem of animal disease is far from new. Animals, Disease and Human Society explores the history and nature of our dependency on other animals and the implications of this for human and animal health.
Business Angels (BAs) are an important financing source for SMEs, and seed and start-up
companies in particular. BAs are even more important in countries and regions lacking an
institutionalised VC infrastructure, often being the only major source of equity finance for young
innovative SMEs. An important additional element of their activity is often the provision of non-
financial benefits like mentoring/advice, contacts etc.
The Netherlands may be an extreme case, both in terms of observed retirement patterns as well as in
terms of the characteristics of the institutional setting. Since the mid-seventies Labour force participation
rates of elderly males (55 years and older) have dropped about 50% points to a current level of less 30%.
Employer provided Early Retirement (ER) schemes allow for retirement at the age of 60, or sometimes
. In addition to these schemes there are Unemployment Insurance schemes (UB) and
Disibality Insurance schemes (DI) to protect...
Oversight is an important role assumed by the Bundesbank in the field of payment transactions. This
task is clarified with the latest amendment to Section 3 of the BBankG and is also recognised by the
Treaty and the Statute as a basic task of the Eurosystem. Its aim is to ensure smooth payment
transactions and encourage efficiency and security.
In practical terms, this function is exercised largely by means of the general agreements on
procedures and standards jointly developed with the banking sector and via institutionalised dialogues
in various official bodies.
We are all explorers. Even as tiny children we search out the limits
of our world. A few years on, our imagination stretches further: fingers
batting at a giddy plastic globe … a spinning top, gaudy with
colour, representing perhaps the most ambitious idea possible, the
Geography is a fundamental fascination. It is also a core component
of a good education. Yet a lot of people are not too sure what it
is. They stumble over the question ‘What is geography?’ Perhaps
they are worried by the scale and the implications of the obvious
answer. For geography is about the world.
This study forms part of a longitudinal study (the main
study) on a population consisting of institutionalised peo-
ple aged 52–102 living in the Province of Granada, Spain.
Data was collected from April 2009 to September 2010.
The main study’s inclusion criteria were to have at least
three natural teeth and/or to wear dentures. 369 residents
were examined at baseline. During the 12-month follow-
up period 102 participants were retired from the study, 66
because they died and 36 because of other causes.
The paper reviews a wide range of theoretical, historical and empirical literatures on banking models and detailed case analyses of failing and non-failing banks. A framework for understanding the role and application of knowledge in banking is developed which suggests how banks, despite their pro-cyclical business strategies, are able to institutionalise learning and actively create new knowledge through time to improve bank organisation, intermediation and risk management.
