Europa Zwischen Fiktion Und Realpolitik L Europe Fictions Et R Alit S Politiques

Europa ist in den vergangenen Jahren zu einem dominierenden Thema geworden. Verantwortlich dafür ist vor allem der Prozess der europäischen Einigung, der zunächst wirtschaftlich, zunehmend aber auch politisch gesehen wurde. Ein kulturell fundiertes Europa-Verständnis hingegen wird zwar rhetorisch immer wieder ins Spiel gebracht, bleibt aber eigenartig unscharf. Dieser Band bringt politische, historische und kulturelle Aspekte des modernen Europas zusammen und trägt so zu einem ganzheitlicheren Bild bei. Sein Titel spielt bewusst mit der Mehrdeutigkeit des Begriffspaars »Fiktion« und »Realität«: Auf der einen Seite kann literarische Fiktion eng mit politischer Realität bzw. Realitätsdarstellung verbunden sein; andererseits ist »Realpolitik« oft mit »Fiktion« - Mythen, Stereotypen, Traditionen - durchsetzt.

Der Ruf nach Transparenz ist mit Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts – nicht zuletzt aufgrund von Krisen, Terrorismus, Korruption – lauter geworden. Transparenz erscheint als Heilmittell mit der Komplexität unserer unübersichtlichen und undurchsichtigen Welt umzugehen. Aber ist die Forderung nicht zu durchsichtig? Ist umgekehrt Intransparenz immer schon ein Hinweis auf ein Problem oder auf eine besondere Ressource? Ist in einer medialisierten Gesellschaft auch der persönliche Alltag nicht zunehmend eine Ausverhandlung zwischen Transparenz und privatem Rückzug – bei „sozialen Medien“, „gläsernen Kunden bzw. Mitarbeitern“? Oszilliert Transparenz nicht immer zwischen Überwachung und Sicherheit – vom Nacktscanner bis zur Anti-Korruption? Der sechste Jahresband der Zeppelin Universität befasst sich mit diesen und vielen anderen Fragen rund um Transparenz und nimmt eine differenzierte Verortung von Transparenz in unterschiedlichen Lebensbereichen von Wirtschaft, Kultur und Politik vor. Die Beiträge des Bandes spannen einen Bogen von der Transparenz in privaten wie öffentlichen Organisationen über die Transparenz politischer Rhetorik bis hin zur Transparenz im alltäglichen Konsum.

The third edition of this highly respected textbook introduces students of public administration to the practical issues of administrative law. While useful to law school students, it is most relevant to public management students. The presentation provides a concise foundation to the history and theory of administrative law, rule making, and judicial decisions. The most important issues in administrative law are included meaningful issues for present and future administrators. A larger number of recent cases and other up-to-date information will be found in the book in order to make the student aware of the kinds of legal problems likely to be encountered in public agencies. One or two cases illustrate each problem at hand, rather than discussing numerous arcane court decisions and technicalities of legal procedure, in order to sketch the broad contours of the present law."
