Environmental Inequalities (EI) –the unequal distribution of environmental goods and ‘bads’ among space and population– are a field of research at the crossroads of political science, socio-legal studies, and urban research. Unlike US Environmental Justice movement, environmental inequalities are not seen by actors, or studied, as a specific frame for action and collective mobilisation in Belgium in environmental matters. Environmental conflicts are however numerous in urban areas in Belgium where industrial activities and housing cohabit. In this paper, I introduce the topic of environmental inequalities in Belgium and analyse the unequal consequences of urban policy in Belgium in terms of environmental quality and access to amenities, more precisely, of uneven access to ‘quality of life’ in a context of ‘anti-urban policy’. Environmental inequalities invite us to think about democracy in the cities (citizen participation, equal access to environmental quality of life) and about litigation and legal opportunities for individuals and groups in environmental conflicts. This paper questions the possibility of alternative modes of public regulation in a ‘social and environmental justice in the city’ perspective that could better integrate social and environmental issues. This paper explores (1) how environmental NGOs and individuals can mobilise the law to denounce environmental conflicts and inequalities providing insights into an environmental inequalities perspective on access to justice in environmental lawsuits. It then studies (2) how current urban policy in Belgium can contribute to explaining these inequalities. Empirical evidence relies, on the one hand, on legal texts, public policy analysis and litigation cases and, on the other hand, on exploratory interviews with stakeholders in Belgium –main political parties, environmental non-profit organizations, legal practitioners, trade unions and scientific institutions.

What strategies do migrants living in European cities use to challenge inequalities in access to healthcare, participation in the labor market and the creation of social support networks? The papers in this panel aim to respond to this question by drawing from transnational and intersectional approaches conceptualizing inequalities as sets of relationships between people and broader structures in which interactions generate better opportunity for some more than for others (Tilly, 2000). Panel participants consider that these interactions and the benefits that can be obtained through migration are affected by various social categories such as gender, class, sexual identity, transnational connections, and citizenship. Intersectional approaches allow to examine how these axes of inequality (Crenshaw, 1989; Anthias, 2001) simultaneously affect migration outcomes and also how they operate differently according to the geographical space in which they develop: origin and host societies as well as transnationally. Nonetheless, the papers presented in this panel will also emphasize migrants’ agency to resist or conform to the inequalities they face. Overall, this panel aims to contribute to the study of migration and inequality at the conceptual and methodological levels. At the theoretical level, the panel will build on new debates on the reproduction of intersectional inequalities in transnational settings (Faist, 2016, Amelina, 2017). At the methodological level, all paper presenters have use multi-sited ethnographic methods (working in cities such as Madrid, London, Milan, Brussels and Frankfurt) and will therefore use the panel as an opportunity to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of such method.

The ability to transfer learning to new situations lies at the heart of lifelong learning and the employability of university graduates. Because students are often unaware of the importance of learning transfer and staff do not always explicitly articulate this expectation, this article explores the idea that metacognition (intentional awareness and the use of that awareness) might enhance the development of learning transfer. Our exploratory study includes results from a survey of 74 staff and 118 students from five institutions in Australia, Belgium, UK, and USA. Our data indicate that many staff and a majority of students do not have a clear understanding of what learning transfer entails, and that there are many mismatches between staff and student perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors regarding learning transfer. This helps explain why learning transfer does not occur as often as it could. We found significant positive correlations between thinking about transfer and thinking about learning processes and the likelihood to use awareness of metacognition to guide practice. Our findings suggest a positive relationship between metacognition and learning transfer. Implications for scholarship of teaching and learning are discussed. [less ▲]

This study demonstrates the first documented use of comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography – high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC×GC-HRTOFMS) for volatile organic compound analysis in the forensic sciences. High-resolution mass spectral data provided higher confidence in analyte identification. GC×GC-HRTOFMS will be valuable for future studies of decomposition odour and other complex volatile matrices.

Transcriptomes consist of several classes of RNAs, whose roles are central to innumerable biological processes as well as diseases. These observations justify the increasing interest in the engineering of functionalized RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) to specifically manipulate RNA function. In this context, the RanBP2-type Zinc Finger (ZF) domain emerged as a suitable scaffold for single-stranded RBPs design. The present study aimed to identify the sequence-specificity of several naturally occurring RanBP2-type ZFs by in vitro selection and use the natural variation in their substrate to create arrays of ZF domains displaying customized specificity. A parallel kinetic and thermodynamic characterization of ssRNA-ZFs interaction was performed by Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) and BioLayer Interferometry (BLI), respectively. Although our data showed that only little variations in the recognized sequence could be observed for the studied ZFs, they contribute to elucidate the molecular basis for the RanBP2-type ZF-ssRNA interaction.

Previous studies have shown that patients with schizophrenia are impaired in recalling specific events from their personal past. However, the relationship between autobiographical memory impairments and disturbance of the sense of identity in schizophrenia has not been investigated in detail. In this study the authors investigated schizophrenic patients' ability to recall self-defining memories; that is, memories that play an important role in building and maintaining the self-concept. Results showed that patients recalled as many specific self-defining memories as healthy participants. However, patients with schizophrenia exhibited an abnormal reminiscence bump and reported different types of thematic content (i.e., they recalled less memories about past achievements and more memories regarding hospitalisation and stigmatisation of illness). Furthermore, the findings suggest that impairments in extracting meaning from personal memories could represent a core disturbance of autobiographical memory in patients with schizophrenia. [less ▲]
