Towards A Truly Harmonised International Commercial And Investment Arbitration Law Enforcing Mena-Foreign Investor Arbitrations Via A Single Regulatory Framework: A New Map For A New Landscape., Mary Ayad 2009 Macquarie University

Towards A Truly Harmonised International Commercial And Investment Arbitration Law Enforcing Mena-Foreign Investor Arbitrations Via A Single Regulatory Framework: A New Map For A New Landscape., Mary Ayad

Dr Mary B Ayad PhD

The current regulatory framework governing International Commercial and investment Arbitration Law, hereinafter ‘ICA’ Law is problematic. A new harmonised ICA Law addressing current laws and trends in ICA Law and IIA Law applicable to both European investors and MENA governments regarding oil concession and foreign investment contract disputes is required to form the foundation of a single regulatory framework. A harmonised ICA/IIA Law will ensure courts rule in favour of arbitral award enforcement. Reasons for the ever importance of Arbitral Award enforcement will be given. This new law, based on general principles of law found at civil, common and ...

Technology Adoption And Innovation In Public Services. The Case Of E-Government In Italy, Antonello Zanfei, Davide Arduini, Federico Belotti, Mario Denni, Gerolamo Giungato 2009 University of Urbino

Technology Adoption And Innovation In Public Services. The Case Of E-Government In Italy, Antonello Zanfei, Davide Arduini, Federico Belotti, Mario Denni, Gerolamo Giungato

Antonello Zanfei

Using data from 1176 Italian municipalities in 2005, we identify factors associated with the development of e-government services supplied by local public administrations (PAs). We show that the combination of internal competencies and context-specific factors is different when explaining decisions to start e-government activities vs. the intensity of such activities. Municipalities involved in e-government are larger, carry out more in-house ICT activities and are more likely to have intranet infrastructures than PAs that do not offer front-office digitized services. They are also generally located in regions having relatively large shares of firms using or producing ICTs, where many other municipalities ...

Virtual Integration As An Approach To Engender Product Innovation And Accelerate Product Development Time: A Literature Analysis, Geraldy Dadriyansyah, Amlus Ibrahim, Mohamad Hassan 2009 Universiti Utara Malaysia

Virtual Integration As An Approach To Engender Product Innovation And Accelerate Product Development Time: A Literature Analysis, Geraldy Dadriyansyah, Amlus Ibrahim, Mohamad Hassan

Geraldy Dadriyansyah

Global competitiveness has forced manufacturing firm, as an internal constituents, to work closer with their suppliers and customers in order to produce highly innovative product in shorter time interval. However as the business trends in manufacturing industry have evolved, centralized integration has become obsolete and no longer be efficient. Concurrent engineering methodology allows manufacturing firms to adopt a new collaboration approach called virtual integration. With the aid of computer-mediated communication, virtual integration is believed to be a promising solution to NPD collaboration issues. Therefore, this conceptual paper is aimed to seek for a new approach to engender product innovation which ...

Unravelling In Two-Sided Matching Markets And Similarity Of Preferences, Hanna Halaburda 2009 Harvard University

Unravelling In Two-Sided Matching Markets And Similarity Of Preferences, Hanna Halaburda

Hanna Halaburda

This paper investigates the causes and welfare consequences of unravelling in two-sided matching markets. It shows that similarity of preferences is an important factor driving unravelling. In particular, under the ex-post stable mechanism (the mechanism that the literature focuses on), unravelling is more likely to occur when participants have more similar preferences. Moreover, any Pareto-optimal mechanism must prevent unravelling and the ex-post stable mechanism is Pareto-optimal if and only if it prevents unravelling.


The Hypocrisy Of The Acquiescence Canon, Blair Warner 2009 Selected Works

The Hypocrisy Of The Acquiescence Canon, Blair Warner

Blair C Warner

The Court applies the acquiescence canon to infer that an agency or judicial statutory interpretation is correct when followed by Congressional inaction. This Article will argue that this practice is based on a number of faulty assumptions. Moreover, the canon is applied inconsistently and creates perverse incentives for the legislature. The Article will then explore the Court’s guidance to lower courts against deriving similar inferences from the denial of certiorari, a similar form of inaction. Drawing parallels between Congress and the Court, and noting the many reasons why conclusions should not be drawn from apparent inactivity, this Article will ...


Models For Solving Emergency Room Crisis., Jomon Aliyas Paul, Kedar Sambhoos 2009 Kennesaw State University

Models For Solving Emergency Room Crisis., Jomon Aliyas Paul, Kedar Sambhoos

Jomon Aliyas Paul

Emergency Departments (ED) across United States are distraught with issues like overcrowding, ambulance diversion, medical errors, patient left without being seen etc. The primary cause for all these interrelated problems is artificial variability that results mainly because of inaccurate severity estimation leading to inappropriate bed allocation and final disposition. To this effect, we propose Bayesian decision support tools that accurately classify new incoming patients into different severity types based on their chief complaints and at the same time assist doctors in subsequent diagnosis and disposition of patients. These tools are developed based on the decision making principles of attending physicians ...


Revisiting Faultline Conceptualization: Measuring Faultline Strength And Distance, Elaine Zanutto, Katerina Bezrukova, Karen Jehn 2009 Santa Clara University

Revisiting Faultline Conceptualization: Measuring Faultline Strength And Distance, Elaine Zanutto, Katerina Bezrukova, Karen Jehn

Karen A. Jehn

The purpose of this research is to develop a conceptually and methodologically sound measure of group faultlines (demographic alignment of members along multiple attributes within a group). This measure takes into account the concept of faultline strength (the extent of a demographic alignment across members within a group) and, thus far neglected in past work, the concept of faultline distance. This faultline distance measure reflects how far apart the emerging subgroups are on demographic characteristics. This new, more elaborate conceptualization of faultlines is validated by presenting a number of hypothetical examples that demonstrate the distinct properties of faultline measures. We ...


The Seeds Of Dissolution: Discrepancy And Incoherence In Buyer–Supplier Exchange, Qiong Wang, Ujwal Kayande, Sandy Jap 2009 Pennsylvania State University

The Seeds Of Dissolution: Discrepancy And Incoherence In Buyer–Supplier Exchange, Qiong Wang, Ujwal Kayande, Sandy Jap

Ujwal Kayande

In this research, we examine a novel mechanism of interorganizational relationship dissolution: incoherence in a partner’s behavior. We propose that the discrepancy between an exchange partner’s opportunistic behavior and the focal firm’s expectations may create a state of incoherence and uncertainty and that this effect can be damaging to the exchange even when the partner’s behavior is better than expected. Using nearly 500 longitudinal, confidential reports of industrial buyers and sellers, we find supportive evidence that (1) the net effect of the discrepancy is initially positive when behavior is better than expected but becomes rapidly negative ...


Repertoire And Frequency Of Consumption In Wine: Are Heavy Buyers More Loyal To Product Attributes?, Polymeros Chrysochou, Athanasios Krystallis 2009 Selected Works

Repertoire And Frequency Of Consumption In Wine: Are Heavy Buyers More Loyal To Product Attributes?, Polymeros Chrysochou, Athanasios Krystallis

Polymeros Chrysochou

Frequency of consumption has always been an important criterion for characterising and segmenting buyers. The aim of this paper is to provide a deeper understanding of the repertoire and loyalty structures between heavy and light wine buyers. Based on a study conducted with stated preference data, basic brand performance measures are estimated through Juster purchase probabilities of brand choice. The polarisation index φ (phi) is used as a measure to model loyalty. Results show that light buyers have a wider repertoire than heavy buyers, buying more small brands. In terms of loyalty, heavy buyers are more loyalty prone than light ...

An Analysis Of The Design Of Legal Frameworks For Social Enterprises, Astrid Coates, Wim Van Opstal 2009 University of Antwerp

An Analysis Of The Design Of Legal Frameworks For Social Enterprises, Astrid Coates, Wim Van Opstal

Wim Van Opstal

In the last two decades, several innovative legal frameworks for social enterprises were developed across Europe. The differential success of these innovations raises certain questions. Is the intrinsic design of these legal frameworks optimal for social enterprises? Secondly, is the attractive capacity of these legal frameworks high enough to attract both new as existing social enterprises? And lastly, have these new legal frameworks reached full maturity? If this is not the case, these changes may well impede rather than encourage the development of social enterprises. In this paper we introduce an analytical framework to analyse the quality of the design ...
