Fazer A "Diferença", Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Fazer A "Diferença", Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

O que é ser diferente? O que é "ter diferenças"? Porque se diz, hoje em dia, em língua portuguesa corrente, "diferença" em vez de "divergência"? Não será esse um dos "paralelipípedos de línguagem" em que tropeçamos, ou que arremessamos aos nossos co-falantes?


The Integrative Functions Of Post-Industrial U.S. Labor Market For Marriage Formation: Three Essays, Lijun Yang 2010 University of Pennsylvania

The Integrative Functions Of Post-Industrial U.S. Labor Market For Marriage Formation: Three Essays, Lijun Yang

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

The deteriorating labor market position of young men has arguably played an important role in later and less frequent marriage since the 1970s. This dissertation examines the relationship between men’s socioeconomic characteristics and marriage formation and the labor market causes of marriage declines since the 1970s.

Regulating The Global Politico-Economic Order: The Functioning Of The Development Assistance Provision Regime, Justin James Gann 2010 The University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Regulating The Global Politico-Economic Order: The Functioning Of The Development Assistance Provision Regime, Justin James Gann

Masters Theses

This thesis is about the provisioning of development assistance, as a major component of foreign aid. Conventional approaches to the subject have tended to focus on the determinate interactions of discrete agents as the principle units of analysis. This necessarily obscures the functional role development assistance fulfills in relation to the global politico economic order, however.

The objective, therefore, is to apprehend the systematic and functional interrelations existing (i) among the various agents engaged in ...

Hoje é comum falar de ética e falta de ética na política. Que relações tal pode ter com a cidadania e a democracia, não apenas ao nível macro-institucional, mas também ao nível micro-estrural, de proximidade?

A great opportunity exists for organizations to improve meeting efficiency. There are approximately 11 million meetings everyday in the United States. Meetings accomplish most business. Lack of a clear agenda, lack of 100% engagement by all participants, and lack of decisions are common problems plaguing most meetings.
