Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

I. GILBOA, L. SAMUELSON, D. SCHMEIDLER

Oxford University Press, Roumanie

2015



The book describes formal models of reasoning that are aimed at capturing the way that economic agents, and decision makers in general think about their environment and make predictions based on their past experience. The focus is on analogies (case-based reasoning) and general theories (rule-based reasoning), and on the interaction between them, as well as between them and Bayesian reasoning. A unified approach allows one to study the dynamics of inductive reasoning in terms of the mode of reasoning that is used to generate predictions

Odissea nei diritti LGBTI in Italia

M. M. WINKLER, G. STRAZIO

Mimesis Edizioni, Italie

2015



Il libro affronta in tutti i suoi aspetti il tema del riconoscimento giuridico dei diritti delle persone LGBTI in Italia. Procedendo sotto forma di viaggio ideale nelle pieghe dell’ordinamento giuridico e prestando grande attenzione al dibattito politico nostrano attraverso l’analisi della giurisprudenza più recente, il volume si sviluppa in sette capitoli e un breve epilogo. Il punto di partenza è rappresentato dalla campagna di Affermazione civile, volta a ottenere il riconoscimento del diritto costituzionale di gay e lesbiche di contrarre matrimonio. Successivamente, gli autori trattano le fonti europee, con un esame delle ultime sentenze della Corte europea dei diritti umani in tema di non discriminazione per orientamento sessuale e di diritto al matrimonio. Sono trattati nello specifico il tema del riconoscimento e trascrizione dei matrimoni tra persone dello stesso sesso celebrati all’estero, delle discriminazioni sul lavoro, delle famiglie omogenitoriali e infine della lotta all’omofobia

Management de l'Innovation et Globalisation : Enjeux et pratiques contemporains

S. JOUINI, F. CHARUE-DUBOC, C. MIDLER

Dunod, Paris, France

2015



La conjugaison contemporaine des impératifs d’innovation et de globalisation est à l’origine de problématiques inédites pour les firmes : comment repérer et développer l’innovation alors que les sources d’innovation sont variées et dispersées ? Comment déployer ces innovations sur les différents marchés ? Quels rôles ont les services centraux et les filiales dans ce déploiement ?Ce livre explore ces questions à partir de l’analyse des stratégies et pratiques actuelles de firmes multinationales françaises de secteurs variés : Air Liquide, Essilor, Orange, Sanofi, Renault, Ubisoft, Valeo, etc. Il caractérise les problèmes auxquels elles sont confrontées et analyse les réponses concrètes apportées.En mettant en perspective ces pratiques avec les enseignements de la recherche en management international et de l’innovation, cet ouvrage donne des clés de compréhension et d’action pour tous ceux qui vivent ces situations ou s’y préparent dans leur cursus de formation de business school ou d’ingénieur

Nouveaux instruments juridiques de l'Union européenne - Évolution de la méthode communautaire

Nouveaux instruments juridiques de l'Union européenne - Évolution de la méthode communautaire

A. VAN WAEYENBERGE

Larcier, Belgique

2015



Ce livre part de l’hypothèse générale selon laquelle la méthode communautaire serait concurrencée dans les faits par de nouveaux instruments juridiques qui, loin de constituer des initiatives isolées, participent d’un modèle alternatif de gouvernance communautaire qui la transforme en profondeur.Afin d’identifier les caractéristiques, les contours et les nouvelles formes de normativité de ce modèle alternatif, cette recherche étudie empiriquement et systématiquement cinq politiques publiques européennes : la stratégie européenne pour l’emploi et la Méthode Ouverte de Coordination (MOC), la politique comptable européenne (normes IFRS), le programme européen de régulation des produits chimiques (REACH), la politique européenne de l’eau (directive-cadre sur l’eau) et la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique (marché européen du carbone).Cette analyse démontre que la méthode communautaire s’est tranformée à au moins trois niveaux : une diversification des instruments d’action publique, un élargissement des acteurs impliqués et, enfin, un glissement dans les modes de contrôle et de sanction.Une fois les caractéristiques et les contours de ce modèle alternatif dessinés, cet ouvrage entreprend de présenter les écoles de pensées (Law and Economics, New Public Management, démocratie délibérative, expérimentalisme démocratique) permettant de justifier son existence et, par-là, d’essayer de fonder sa légitimité.Enfin, une série de questions relatives au manque de contrôle sur l’activité des institutions de l’Union et à la sauvegarde de l’ordre juridique constitutionnel européen sont tour à tour abordées.L’ouvrage intéresse les professeurs, les magistrats et les avocats qui enseignent et/ou pratiquent le droit de l’Union européenne mais également les étudiants qui suivent une spécialisation dans cette matière

Nudging and the Law: What can EU Law learn from Behavioural Sciences?

Nudging and the Law: What can EU Law learn from Behavioural Sciences?

A. ALEMANNO, A. L. SIBONY

Hart Publishing, Royaume-Uni

2015



Behavioural sciences provide a better understanding of human decision-making. Increasingly, governments around the world are keen to rely on these insights for reshaping public interventions in a wide range of policy areas such as energy, health, financial services and data protection. When policy-making meets behavioural sciences, more effective and lower cost regulations can emerge in the form of default rules, smart disclosure and simplification requirements. While behaviourally-informed regulation has a huge potential, it also attracts legitimacy and practicability concerns. Nudge and the Law explores the legal implications of the emergent phenomenon of behavioural regulation by focusing on the challenges and opportunities it may offer to EU policy-making and beyond

Organizations, Strategy and Society: The Orgology of Disorganized Worlds

Organizations, Strategy and Society: The Orgology of Disorganized Worlds

R. DURAND

Routledge, New York

2015



Organizations are ubiquitous, from clubs and associations to firms and public agencies. They confer meaning to all of us, and our attachment to and membership of organizations have a profound effect on all areas of our lives. However, in our increasingly turbulent world, these organizations run the risk of disappearing or losing their legitimacy, creating a sense of pointlessness and absurdity.Organizations, Strategy and Society: The Orgology of Disorganized Worlds draws on neo-institutional and strategy theories of competitive advantage and develops an integrative approach to theorizing organizations and their behaviors, termed ‘orgology’. It explains that organizations can act strategically to protect and renew the meaning that individuals give to their lives. In so doing, organizations that survive and thrive impose their logics on society, thereby influencing what is legitimate or not. In turn, individuals must reinterpret their multiple associations with organizations and contribute to reinforcing or inhibiting social evolutions. This new way of understanding organizations’ relationships with society results in a reconsideration of management and the role of individuals in building their future.This book will be of interest to students at all levels, to researchers in organizational studies, strategic management and sociology, as well as to people willing to reorganize their world

Regulating Lifestyle Risks The EU, Alcohol, Tobacco and Unhealthy Diets

A. ALEMANNO, A. GARDE

Cambridge University Press

2015



This collection of essays looks at the role the European Union could and should play in promoting healthier lifestyle, in light of the moral, philosophical, legal and political challenges associated with the regulation of individual choices. By tackling the main non-communicable diseases (NCD) risk factors (tobacco consumption, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diets and lack of physical activity), the contributors endeavour to identify common themes and determine whether and, if so, to what extent the lessons learned in relation to each area of EU intervention could be transposed to the others. By focusing on the European Union legal order, the book highlights both the opportunities that legal instruments offer for NCD prevention and control agenda in Europe, as well as the constraints that the law imposes on policy-makers. First systematic analysis of an emerging EU lifestyle policy, which will appeal to those interested in the EU's public health mandate Multiple viewpoints from renowned experts on the study and practice of lifestyle risk regulation Offers a normative perspective on what the EU could and should do to engage with non-communicable diseases prevention
