• Améliorer la gouvernance forestière en Afrique Centrale: Bonnes pratiques et leçons apprises de la collaboration entre parlementaires, société civile et médias

      MBZIBAIN, AURELIAN; Amine, Khadidja (University of Wolverhampton, 2016-01-01)
      Le Bassin du Congo comprend environ 70 % de la couverture forestière de l’Afrique: sur les 530 millions d’hectares du bassin du Congo, 300 millions sont couverts par la forêt. Ces forêts hébergent quelques 30 millions de personnes et fournissent des moyens de subsistance à plus de 75 millions de personnes qui comptent sur les ressources naturelles locales. Bien que la déforestation et la dégradation des forêts soient restées à un niveau faible dans le bassin du Congo, elles ont toutes deux nettement accéléré au cours des dernières années.

    • Guest Editor's Introduction

      Hambrook, Glyn (Edinburgh University Press, 2015-10)
      The original objective of this themed issue was to gather reflections on the reception of the work of Charles Baudelaire that in some guise or other departed from standard patterns, and, consequently, to focus on Baudelaire’s reception with reference to particularities rather than paradigms. The call for submissions sought therefore to elicit contributions on the reception and translation of Baudelaire’s work in overlooked and under-frequented places, on topics – those which follow were given by way of example in the call for submissions ‒ involving non-standard cultures and patterns of translation of Baudelaire’s work; the reception of Baudelaire’s work in milieus underexplored or ignored by comparative scholarship; and unfamiliar Baudelaire(s): atypical reception of Baudelaire’s work. The four essays and Afterword that comprise this issue achieve this objective in one way or another, while demonstrating that in order to be deemed non-standard, receptions do not have to take the form of dramatic or radical departures from established models of reception. This introduction will provide a context to the essays by considering firstly the recent and current position of reception studies within the context of comparative literature and secondly developments in the study of the reception of Baudelaire during the last few years. It will conclude with a review of the essays and Afterword individually and in relation to each other.

    • Pre-packs- patronus or dementor?

      Walton, Peter (R3 Association of Business Recovery Professionals, 2018-03)
      As fans of Harry Potter will be aware, a Dementor is a dark creature which glories in decay, draining happiness and hope from people and creating an atmosphere of misery and disturbance. A Patronus, on the other hand, is a positive force of hope and happiness providing the desire to survive. The purpose of this note is to consider whether the magic of a pre-packaged administration is more Patronus than Dementor. It is widely, but not universally, accepted that pre-packs often produce the best result for a company in financial distress. They often permit an ailing business to be sold, at a higher price than in liquidation, which safeguards the future of that business as a trading entity with minimal disruption and jobs saved.
    • Why are people who are socially deprived more likely to develop CKD than those who are not? A systematic scoping review

      Rees, Michael; Brettle, Alison (Kidney Research UK, 2018-06-01)
      This report seeks to examine the relationship between social deprivation and the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the United Kingdom (UK). The aims of the report are to: 1. Understand why people who are socially deprived are more likely to develop CKD than those who are not socially deprived 2. Provide a map of the literature in relation to different types of social deprivation and risk factors 3. Identify gaps in the literature in relation to different types of social deprivation, risk factors and stages of kidney disease 4. Learn lessons from other developed countries in achieving better outcomes for socially deprived groups. It will do this by: 1. Reporting on a systematic scoping review of the literature to identify the evidence base of the relationship between social deprivation and CKD 2. Mapping the evidence according to country/area 3. Drawing up a set of key findings from the results of the review and mapping 4. Identifying opportunities for further research
    • Women in Law. So Many Roles to Play, So Little Time

      Potocnik, Metka (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019-03-08)
      Things are finally falling in place. It has been a couple of years since I have successfully defended my PhD; I am now (finally) in a full-time academic post and am expecting my first research monograph to be published in the summer. But to stop the story there, would be grossly misleading. As with most of our stories, things have been challenging, complex and put simply: life.
