To understand the internationalization of retailing, we must understand the internationalization of its entreprises. With this aim in view, one first case is chosen - Europa - and the processus is learned through the main questions of geography : what where ? which evolution ? who ? how ? why and why there and not elsewhere ? The lead of territory in the strategies and the choices of the firms is clearly showed; this fact confirms the geographical relevance of the thema « Globalization of Retailing ». [less ▲]

Le développement des PME à l'international est un important vecteur de croissance pour l'économie belge et européenne. Or, trop peu d'entre elles osent franchir le pas. Est-ce à dire que l'internationalisation s'impose à elles comme une évidence ? Non, évidemment ! L'internationalisation impacte significativement les processus décisionnels et managériaux des entreprises. Il faut en couvrir les risques et trouver les financements adaptés. Mais, par ailleurs, de nombreuses mesures publiques existent pour soutenir les entreprises dans leurs démarches. Le présent ouvrage a dès lors pour objectif d'informer les entrepreneurs sur les différentes facettes de l'internationalisation et d'apporter des réponses pratiques sur la manière de se financer et de se couvrir contre les risques encourus.

The international development of SMEs is an important growth vehicle for the Belgian and European economies. Yet far too few of them dare to take the step required. Does this mean that they should see internationalisation as a given ? No, of course not ! Internationalisation has a significant impact on companies' decision-making and managerial processes. The risks involved need to be covered and the right form of funding found. There are numerous public measures in place aimed at supporting businesses in their efforts. The aim of this book is to inform business-owners about the various aspects of internationalisation and to provide them whith practical answers about the ways they can find funding. [less ▲]

De traditionele Vlaamse strip is ongewoon populair in de eigen regio, maar heeft — op Suske en Wiske en enkele andere uitzonderingen na — in het buitenland nooit een grote bekendheid verkregen. Sinds enkele jaren is het Vlaamse striplandschap echter grondig aan het veranderen. Jonge auteurs zetten een heel ander soort strips op de kaart en krijgen daarvoor zowel in eigen regio als ver daarbuiten erkenning. In deze lezing zal ik die nieuwe beweging in zijn context plaatsen en enkele boeken gedetailleerder bespreken, zoals De maagd en de neger van Judith Vanistendael en Over naar jou van Philip Paquet en Adriaan Van Aken.

De internationalisering van KMO's vormt een belangrijke groeimotor voor de Belgische en Europese economie. Nochtans durft verre van elke KMO de stap naar het buitenland aan. Een en ander valt te verklaren door de zware impact die een internationalisering proces heeft op de organisatie en het management van de KMO. Daarnaast blijken de financiering van internationale activiteiten en het beheersen van de risico's niet te onderschatten uitdagingen. Hoewel de overheid heel wat ondersteuning ter zake biedt, zijn deze maatregelen niet altijd heel bekend en benut. Dit boek heeft dus als doelstelling om bedrijfsleiders te informeren omtrent de diverse facetten van internationaal ondernemerchap. [less ▲]

Since a few years, it has become possible to observe the development of cyber parties in western democracies. Their intensive use of internet to coordinate relations between members is supposed to attract new types of militant, interested by less hierarchical informal networks and sporadic political activities. Yet, the following question remains: What role(s) does the Internet play in the enrolment process within this kind of parties? Analyzing fifteen in-depth interviews with Belgian Pirate Party’s members as well as members’ online activities, this paper shows that it is possible to distinguish two kinds of cyber parties’ members. On the one side, some members are passionate about information and communications technology and their party membership is their sole political activity. On the other side, some members are more distant users of the Internet and are active in plenty of postmodern political associations. These two divergent militant profiles are key elements to explain the divergence of views among Belgian Pirate Party’s members, but also the relative lack of political visibility of this political party due to difficulties in achieving coordination.

Depuis 1997, l’espace socio-public camerounais « devient média » (Blondeau, 2007) de plus en plus. Dans ce processus, la politique ne fait pas exception. Au contraire, les partis et leurs leaders investissent l’Internet, le territorialisent et en utilisent les outils : sites web et blogs, forums, facebook, twitter, myspace, etc. Cela apparaît techno-politiquement innovant dans un contexte certes marqué par le multipartisme, la libéralisation de l’espace sociopolitique et l’avènement des NTIC, mais qui présente aussi des déficits. Politiquement, on note une opposition en panne, des élections contestées et une faible culture de participation politique. (Ahmadou, 2006; Mack-Tit, 2007; Kokoroko, 2009). Au plan sociotechnique et économique, le taux de pénétration de l’Internet (4%) et le pouvoir d’achat de 70% de la population restent faibles. Cela limite l’accès au Net (Bâ, 2003) mais n’empêche pas son usage et sa représentation politiques. Nous avons étudié cet usage et cette représentation au niveau macro-politique en nous limitant aux acteurs institutionnels. Nous avons alors remarqué que leur cyberprésence c’est-à-dire la façon dont ils s’approprient l’espace numérique tend à reproduire leurs rapports de force dans le champ politique classique (Ovadia, 2011). Les usages politiques qu’ils y développent traduisent davantage la diffusion de l’information que l’interactivité et la mobilisation (Greffet et Wojcik, 2008). Dans ce contexte, les enjeux démocratiques de net-politique varient selon le caractère « opposant » ou « au pouvoir » des acteurs (Greffet, 2011). Si pour le parti au pouvoir, il s’agit de dominer tous les espaces d’expression politique, pour les opposants, le but est de trouver une visibilité nationale et de se faire entendre à l’international. Pour mener ce travail, nous avons examiné trois points : la cyberprésence des acteurs institutionnels, le contenu de leurs sites web et blogs et celui de leurs pages facebook. Nous situant dans la perspective de la communication médiatisée par ordinateur (Yanoshevsky, 2010), nous avons alors utilisé les indicateurs que Bastien et Greffet (2009) et Béché (2011) ont utilisés dans leurs travaux sur la net-campagne.

La crise économique et financière que nous traversons depuis deux ans ne diffère en rien de celles que notre monde a connues au cours de sa longue histoire (Malkiel, 2000). De tels ajustements sont nécessaires chaque fois que notre système économique doit s’adapter à des changements technologiques majeurs. La longueur atypique de cette crise et son ampleur - plusieurs milliers de milliards de dollars de capitalisation boursière perdus – soulignent toutefois l’importance exceptionnelle des ajustements qu’engendrent l’adoption et la diffusion de ces technologies nouvelles.

Using a sociological approach, we show how Tunisians of the diaspora take advantage of Internet to keep themselves involved and informed and to denounce what they consider as unjust in their native country. We describe the style of critical speech preferred by these activist Internet users and the type of public sphere they claim. We study the activist paths of some of them and analyse their relationships with Internet users living in Tunisia. While they are initially less likely to openly denounce (use of indirect criticism) the authoritarian regime, we illustrate how these Internet users in Tunisia come to play an increasingly important role in this new space of contestation.

Après avoir introduit le thème du contrôle par l’étudiant de son propre apprentissage, la conférence illustrera des situations d’apprentissage et d’évaluation (bien sûr faisant usage d’Internet) qui poussent l’étudiant à faire des choix et qui, en corollaire, aboutissent à faire valider par les enseignants le résultat de trajectoires riches et différenciées. Rassembler des preuves de son développement de compétences, planifier son inscription dans une série de MOOCs ou son travail en ligne suite à un test diagnostique sont autant d’actions qui responsabilisent l’étudiant quant à sa propre formation. Mais l’apprentissage autodéterminé est-il à la portée de tous les étudiants ? [less ▲]

One challenge in teaching sustainability results from the expertise being distributed in various universities. At the same time society would not require so many experts focused on sustainability that corresponding purely sustainability-oriented curricula should be offered in a majority of universities. Thus sustainability aspects have to be integrated into existing curricula e.g. in chemical engineering studies. To offer sufficiently high-level courses or teaching content, one way is to share modules dealing with sustainability aspects. The idea to share teaching capabilities on a national or international level is not new, some examples are sustainicum.at, bioenergytrain.eu. While these approaches address the topic of sustainability with a relatively wide variety of facets, it is difficult to see, how a coherent picture can be obtained and transferred in education to students and the interested public. While this is so, already regarding the most basic element of the versatile toolbox of chemical engineering, namely setting up and solving simple balances, leads to significant insights and especially a fundamental understanding on the basic interplay of at least some of the major drivers. These are – besides increasing world population, which is the main driver – the increasing energy consumption, the limited land area for food and bioenergy production, the finite size even of the atmosphere leading to an increase in CO2 concentration and climate change, to name just a few. All of these aspects refer to limited resources for which balances can be set up and solved. The balances have the advantage that they are so simple that everybody can assess their validity and implications. The experience with working out a corresponding teaching module will be presented exemplarily. To facilitate delivering the aspects to students and the interested public the teaching material including a full manuscript and power-point slides have been worked out and are supplied at sustainicum.at. To allow easy access to the content of this teaching material also corresponding lectures have been recorded and are made publicly available through YouTube. The technical boundary conditions, which were found to be quite optimal as compared to other public lectures available on the internet, will be presented. The teaching material has in the past also been used for a variety of own presentations with the aim to deliver the basic understanding to an interested public, including public conference series or school classes. From these various experiences conclusions are drawn which will be presented.
