In the economic, political, social and financial context that has been a feature of the early 21st century, factors such as the deregulation of markets and commercial practices and the growing interconnection of markets have resulted, virtually inevitably, with Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises having to get to grips with the phenomenon of internationalisation. This challenge is having inescapable consequences on the organisation and day-to-day operation of SMEs, forcing them in particular to make their management practices more professional, especially in terms of implementing systematic control procedures into their activities. SMEs have also had effectively to introduce a multicultural dimension linked closely to the internationalisation of their business to their management practices and processes, and to their way of making strategic choices. These changes are having an effect on the tools, rules, lines of conduct, internal directives, informal practices, etc. that together make up the system of processes deployed by SME managers to enable their companies to be managed with regular and recurrent performance in mind. This is characterised in particular by the fact that they need to be capable of achieving the financial, manufacturing and employment-related objectives that they set themselves. The aim of this contribution is to identify, through a structured framework of analysis, what the implications are that internationalisation may have on the system of processes within SMEs that are performing well. It is based on a summary of the elements highlighted in the specialist scientific and business literature devoted to the impact of internationalisation in the context of an SME. It is structured and uses the modelling of the (non-)performance of the SME proposed by Crutzen and Van Caillie (2009) as its organisational framework [less ▲]

This book argues that the current state of China requires an important paradigm shift in the way the party-state manages the country’s development, and goes on to assess the fitness of the party-state for implementing such a paradigm shift and the likelihood of the party-state bringing this about. It brings together an examination of the very latest situation in a range of key areas where current developments have the potential to undermine substantially the status quo, areas such as the recent economic crisis and the resulting economic slowdown, increasing labour unrest, mounting calls for social justice, worsening urban-rural disparity, the urgent need to implement social welfare programmes, the rise of civil society, and the impact of new media. Overall, the book provides a thorough appraisal of the difficulties which China currently faces. [less ▲]

In de economische, politieke, sociale en financiële context die kenmerkend was voor het begin van de 20e eeuw, hebben fenomenen zoals marktderegulering, dereglementering van handelspraktijken en toenemende marktkoppeling vooral bij de Kleine en Middelgrote Onderneming geleid tot een nagenoeg onvermijdelijke confrontatie met het fenomeen van de internationalisering. Deze confrontatie heeft onontkoombare gevolgen voor de organisatie en de dagelijkse werking van de KMO. Ze wordt meer bepaald verplicht tot een grondige professionalisering van haar beheerspraktijken (vooral de invoering van systematische procedures voor controle van haar activiteiten) en tot effectieve integratie – in haar beheersprocessen en -praktijken en in de uitwerking van haar strategische keuzes – van de multiculturele dimensie die onvermijdelijk nauw verbonden is met het fenomeen van internationalisering van activiteiten. Deze consequenties hebben op hun beurt een weerslag op de instrumenten, regels, gedragslijnen, interne richtlijnen, informele praktijken ... die samen het systeem van processen vormen dat door de KMO-bestuurders werd opgezet om het beheer ervan mogelijk te maken met het oog op regelmatige en recurrente prestaties. Kenmerkend voor dat beheer is met name het feit dat de KMO in staat moet zijn continu de zichzelf opgelegde financiële, industriële of maatschappelijke doelstellingen te bereiken. Deze bijdrage heeft als doel om met behulp van een gestructureerd analysekader na te gaan welke implicaties het internationaliseringsfenomeen kan hebben op het systeem van de processen van de performante KMO.

Thiamin (vitamin B1) was the first vitamin characterized and its discovery was at the origin of the concept of vitamin. Thiamin deficiency mainly affects the nervous system and causes two classical diseases, beriberi (a polyneuritic syndrome) and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (anterograde amnesia resulting from brain lesions in alcoholics). Thiamin transport through the membranes of intestinal and other cells requires specific carriers. As the process is rather slow, various lipid-soluble thiamin precursors with better bioavailability have been developed. In the cytosol, thiamin is pyrophosphorylated to thiamin diphosphate (ThDP), an indispenable cofactor in cell energy metabolism. Therefore, thiamin deficiency causes decreased cofactor function, leading to neuronal death. In addition, non-cofactor roles of the triphosphorylated derivatives thiamin triphosphate (ThTP) and adenosine thiamin triphosphate (AThTP) may play a role in metabolic regulation and may contribute to the pathology of thiamin deficiency-induced brain lesions. Current research interests are focused on the metabolism and role of thiamin derivatives (especially in catalysis by ThDP-dependent enzymes) and the biochemical and pathophysiological mechanisms by which thiamin deficiency induces specific brain lesions and may be implicated in other disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.

Wakefulness and sleep are associated with distinct patterns of neural activity and neuromodulation. In humans, functional neuroimaging was used to characterize the related changes in regional brain metabolism and hemodynamics. Recent data combining EEG and fMRI described the transient responses associated with spindles and slow waves, as well as the changes in functional integration during NREM sleep. It was also shown that regional brain activity during sleep is influenced by the experience acquired during the preceding waking period. These data are currently interpreted in the framework of two theories. First, the use-dependent increase in slow oscillation during NREM sleep is associated with local synaptic homeostasis. Second, reactivations of memory traces during NREM sleep would reorganize declarative memories in hippocampal-neocortical networks, a systems-level memory consolidation which can be hindered by sleep deprivation. Collectively, these data reveal the dynamical changes in brain activity during sleep which support normal human cognition. [less ▲]

The metallo--lactamase superfamily comprises a remarkable set of enzymes that catalyse the hydrolysis of a wide range of substrates such as peptides, nucleic acids, antibiotics of the penicillin family and organophosphorus derivatives. In the past ten years, X-Ray structures of representative enzymes from different families have been determined, with the metallo--lactamases being the most represented. The salient common structural feature is the presence of a catalytic metal centre embedded within a  fold. The wealth of sequence and structural information on metallo--lactamases has allowed their classification into three subclasses. Structural information is now available for members of each subclass. Interestingly, these structures show the presence of either a mono or a di-nuclear metal centre in the active sites raising questions on the metal to protein stoichiometry under physiological conditions. In addition, the structures reveal a wide variability in the shape of the active site, which involves three variable loops lining the metal centre. For each enzyme a clear correlation is found between active site shape and substrate specificity. [less ▲]

This article is part of a volume on limits of competition law. It explores a particular type of limitations, which has not recieved the attention it deserves. These limits stem from finite legal technology and bear on imports from economics into competition law. There is usually more than one way to import any given element of economic wisdom into a court decisions, but there is a finite number of options. Therefore, courts who are willing to take on an economic arguments will have to make choices as to the most suited legal technique among those available. In this article, I offer a typology of available legal techniques and explain their respective characteristics in terms of three characteristics, which matter for importing economics: degree of legal change implied, flexibility and fidelity to economic reasoning. I argue that it is important that courts become aware of the choice-of-technique decisions they are making and that scholars consider this methodological dimension of competition law & economics.

This chapter reviews taxonomic composition, biomass, production and nutrient limitation of the phytoplankton of Lake Kivu. Present Lake Kivu phytoplankton is dominated by cyanobacteria – mainly Synechococcus spp. and thin filaments of Planktolyngbya limnetica – and by pennate diatoms, among which Nitzschia bacata and Fragilaria danica are dominant. Seasonal shifts occur, with cyanobacteria developing more in the rainy season, and the diatoms in the dry season. Other groups present are cryptophytes, chrysophytes, chlorophytes and dinoflagellates. According to a survey conducted in the period 2002–2008, the composition of the phytoplankton assemblage was quasi homogeneous among lake basins. The mean euphotic depth varied between 17 and 20 m, and the increase in the ratio between mixed layer depth and euphotic depth to about 2 in the dry season may have selected for diatoms and cryptophytes, which tended to present their maximal development in this season, when cyanobacteria slightly decreased. Mean chlorophyll a concentration was 2.16 mg m−3, and the mean daily primary production was 0.62 g C m−2 day−1 (range, 0.14–1.92), i.e. in the same range as in other large oligotrophic East African Rift lakes. Seston elemental ratios indicated a moderate P deficiency during the dry, mixed season and a severe P limitation during part of the rainy, stratified season; the C:N ratio indicated a moderate N limitation throughout the year. Nutrient addition assays pointed to a direct N limitation and co-limitation by P during rainy seasons and P or N limitation during dry seasons depending on the year. Thus, phytoplankton ecology in Lake Kivu does not differ from that of other Rift lakes, where seasonal variations result in a trade-off between low light with high nutrient supply and high light with low nutrient supply. Phytoplankton production in Lake Kivu is also similar to that of other Rift lakes, and nutrient limitation of phytoplankton growth may occur as a result of variable availability of N and P, as in Lakes Tanganyika and Malawi, even though the extent of P limitation seems greater in Lake Kivu.

We review available data on archaea, bacteria and small eukaryotes in an attempt to provide a general picture of microbial diversity, abundances and microbe-driven processes in Lake Kivu surface and intermediate waters (ca. 0–100 m). The various water layers present contrasting physical and chemical properties and harbour very different microbial communities supported by the vertical redox structure. For instance, we found a clear vertical segregation of archaeal and bacterial assemblages between the oxic and the anoxic zone of the surface waters. The presence of specific bacterial (e.g. Green Sulfur Bacteria) and archaeal (e.g. ammonia-oxidising archaea) communities and the prevailing physico-chemical conditions point towards the redoxcline as the most active and metabolically diverse water layer. The archaeal assemblage in the surface and intermediate water column layers was mainly composed by the phylum Crenarchaeota , by the recently defined phylum Thaumarchaeota and by the phylum Euryarchaeota . In turn, the bacterial assemblage comprised mainly ubiquitous members of planktonic assemblages of freshwater environments (Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes and Betaproteobacteria among others) and other less commonly retrieved phyla (e.g. Chlorobi, Clostridium and Deltaproteobacteria). The community of small eukaryotes (<5 µm) mainly comprised Stramenopiles , Alveolata , Cryptophyta , Chytridiomycota , Kinetoplastea and Choanoflagellida, by decreasing order of richness. The total prokaryotic abundance ranged between 0.5 × 10^6 and 2.0 × 10^6 cells mL−1 , with maxima located in the 0–20 m layer, while phycoerythrin-rich Synechococcus-like picocyanobacteria populations were comprised between 0.5 × 10^5 and 2.0 × 10^5 cells mL−1 in the same surface layer. Brown-coloured species of Green Sulfur Bacteria permanently developed at 11m depth in Kabuno Bay and sporadically in the anoxic waters of the lower mixolimnion of the main basin. The mean bacterial production was estimated to 336 mg C m−2 day−1 . First estimates of the re-assimilation by bacterioplankton of dissolved organic matter excreted by phytoplankton showed high values of dissolved primary production (ca. 50% of total production). The bacterial carbon demand can totally be fuelled by phytoplankton production. Overall, recent studies have revealed a high microbial diversity in Lake Kivu, and point towards a central role of microbes in the biogeochemical and ecological functioning of the surface layers, comprising the mixolimnion and the upper chemocline.

The dominant species of the crustacean plankton in Lake Kivu are the cyclopoid copepods Thermocyclops consimilis and Mesocyclops aequatorialis and the cladoceran Diaphanosoma excisum. Mean crustacean biomass over the period 2003–2004 was 0.99 g C m−2. The seasonal dynamics closely followed variations of chlorophyll a concentration and responded well to the dry season phytoplankton peak. The mean annual crustacean production rate was 23 g C m−2 year−1. The mean trophic transfer efficiency between phytoplankton and herbivorous zooplankton was equal to 6.8 %, indicating a coupling between both trophic levels similar to that in other East African Great lakes. These observations suggest a predominant bottom-up control of plankton dynamics and biomass in Lake Kivu. Whereas the present biomass of crustacean plankton in Lake Kivu is comparable to that of other African Rift lakes, the zooplankton biomass before Limnothrissa introduction was 2.6 g C m−2, based on estimation from available historical data. So, if the sardine introduction in the middle of the last century led to a threefold decrease of zooplankton biomass, it did not affect zooplankton production to a level which would lead to the collapse of the food web and of the fishery.

This book provides an analysis of bilateral tax treaties concluded by thirty-seven jurisdictions from five continents and empirically ascertains the impact of the UN and OECD Model Tax Conventions on bilateral tax treaties. It therefore fills a major gap in the international tax literature, which has so far either studied the sole Model Tax Conventions or focused on bilateral treaties in the context of the tax treaty policy of single countries, and sets the pace for a new methodology in the analysis and interpretation of tax treaties. A general report outlines the key points of the analysis, highlights current trends and predicts future developments of multilateralism and global tax law. This is an essential resource for academics, tax authorities and international tax practitioners who find textbooks based on Model Tax Conventions insufficient. • First study of tax treaties to adopt a global perspective • Demonstrates the impact of the OECD and UN Model Conventions via independent expert analysis and supplemented by a general report • Sets new standards for tax treaty interpretation by turning bilateral treaties into a possible core for developing multilateralism in global tax law [less ▲]

Since the second half of the 20th century and for decades to come, sedimentation in reservoirs is challenging our ability to maintain the storage capacity needed for water supply, flood mitigation and hydroelectricity production. This complex issue needs to be accounted for from the early stages of the design of dams and reservoirs, until the definition of operation rules oriented towards sustainable management of water and sediments. With reference to the widely-used Driver, Pressure, State, Impact, Response (DPSIR) analytical framework (European Commission 2003), the present chapter reviews key figures and trends in worldwide reservoirs sedimentation, as well as analyzes contemporary sediment management strategies. Besides setting some fundamentals of reservoir sedimentation and summarizing up-to-date background information on rate and distribution of loss of storage in the world, we identify some key driving forces of soil erosion, such as land use, urban development, agriculture and deforestation. Main mechanisms of watershed erosion and sediment yield to reservoirs are also discussed, with a focus on their spatial and temporal variation. Means for quantifying the magnitude of this pressure on reservoirs sustainability are presented, including reservoir surveys, fluvial measurements and combined approaches with numerical modelling. After a review of sedimentation impacts, both locally and downstream as well as upstream of the reservoir, we describe current experience and future opportunities of response to reservoir sedimentation. Possible measures are classified into three broad categories: sediment yield reduction, sediment routing (bypass and pass-through) and sediment removal (dredging and flushing). Pro and contras are presented for the different modes of reservoir operation, as well as their expected efficiency and some specific constraints. Predicting the sedimentation pattern as well as grain sorting processes is a prerequisite for developing optimal sediment evacuation strategies, involving for instance flushing operations. Sound modelling of sediment transport and deposition in reservoirs is highlighted as highly beneficial to support sediment management in the perspective of achieving reservoir sustainability. The chapter also illustrates how spatially distributed numerical modelling may succeed in enhancing decision-making for selecting optimal sediment management measures. [less ▲]

La prééminence de la conception réaliste a longtemps cadenassé le champ d’étude de la puissance en Relations internationales, aujourd’hui fortement contestée. L’analyse de l’émergence de «nouvelles puissances» est à ce titre riche d’enseignements. Afin de dépasser l’antagonisme classique entre les perspectives institutionnalistes et réalistes, cette introduction propose d’appréhender la puissance via une démarche alternative, à partir d’une approche hétérodoxe de l’hégémonie permettant d’entrevoir les phénomènes de domination insidieux et non ressentis comme tels. À l’instar de la Chine, engagée dans la construction d’un statut de puissance mondiale bardée d’un discours de légitimation aux accents tiers-mondistes (anti-hégémonisme, multipolarisation du monde, coopération Sud-Sud, etc.), l’accroissement de son influence mondiale ne dépend pas seulement de la disponibilité de ses ressources – matérielles et immatérielles –, ni de son aptitude à les mobiliser adéquatement (smart power). Elle tient également à l’image qu’elle se fait d’elle-même (auto-perception) et qu’elle cherche à véhiculer sur la scène internationale (représentation), ainsi qu’à la perception de son statut par les autres acteurs du système international (reconnaissance extérieure). La puissance de la Chine se mesure in fine à travers sa capacité à « s’affirmer comme une référence » pour ses pairs émergents, voire auprès des puissances occidentales. [less ▲]

S’il est un élément précoce de la socialisation politique des jeunes Belges, c’est la connaissance de l’obligation de voter dans ce pays. Peu de Belges ignorent, en effet, que le vote y est obligatoire et donc qu’une obligation de se rendre aux urnes, sous peine de sanctions – généralement peu ou mal connues –, incombe à chaque électeur du Royaume, même si dans les faits tous ne participent au scrutin. Pourtant, le vote obligatoire n’est pas une caractéristique commune des systèmes électoraux à travers le monde. À ce jour, on ne retrouve une telle obligation, assortie ou non de sanction, que dans trente et un États ou partie d’État. La Belgique fut précurseur en la matière et, même si ce pays ne s’est pas détourné du vote obligatoire en plus de cent ans d’existence, cette obligation continue de susciter un véritable débat. Dans la première partie de ce chapitre, nous revenons sur l’introduction du vote obligatoire en Belgique en présentant les arguments de ce débat. La deuxième partie aborde les principes et les sanctions consacrés par le droit positif tandis que la troisième partie explore les conséquences politiques du vote obligatoire. Tout naturellement, la conclusion de ce chapitre se penchera sur son avenir en Belgique. [less ▲]

On le sait, la Conférence de Copenhague a été un échec. En effet, quelques chefs d'Etat –à savoir les européens et américains pour le monde industrialisé– et la Chine, l'Inde, le Brésil et l'Afrique du Sud pour les pays émergents ont doublé le processus de négociations des Nations Unies (dans l'obscurantisme le plus total et sans concertation avec les pays en développement) pour arriver à une note qui tient sur deux pages. Ce texte ne comporte plus de trace d'engagement de réduction de GES pour 2020 ou 2050, pas même volontaire. Une aide financière sera dégagée pour aider les pays pauvres à faire face aux conséquences du changement climatique. Quel sera le montant de cette aide ? Sera-t-elle additionnelle ou détournée des fonds d'aide au développement ? De qui viendra-t-elle et à qui profitera-t-elle ? Et pour quoi faire ? Nul ne le sait. Quant à la réduction de la déforestation et aux contraintes d'émissions de GES pour les secteurs aérien et maritime (annoncés comme des conditions sine qua non d'accord par les européens), pas un mot... Autant dire que le résultat final de ce grand rendez-vous n'est guère étincelant... Directement après ladite Conférence, j’écrivais dans une carte blanche « A quoi sert la science, si le politique se borne à cultiver, pour des raisons économiques dans le court terme, la science de l'inconscience ? » (Ozer 2010). Arriverons-nous à trouver un accord dans les mois ou les années à venir ? Ou devrons-nous subir brutalement les conséquences de ce changement climatique ? Car on peut négocier à l’infini entre délégations, mais on ne négociera jamais avec la physique de l’atmosphère. [less ▲]

Considerable progress has been recently made in cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP), a controlled radical polymerization system based on the temporary deactivation of the polymer chains by a cobalt complex, like the improvement of the mechanistic understanding, the extension to a range of monomers and the preparation of novel architectures. However, the real breakthrough in this field concerns the development of efficient radical coupling methods for polymer precursors preformed by CMRP. This book chapter aims to describe the general principle and main characteristics of such radical coupling techniques involving dienes, nitrones, fullerenes or carbon nanotubes. Well-defined and complex architectures obtained by these techniques are provided in order to illustrate their potential for macromolecular engineering. [less ▲]

It is tempting to argue that, in A Distant Shore, Caryl Phillips entrusts a black gentleman with the mission to civilize uncouth English people. My contention, however, is to try and show the extent to which the text itself undermines the very idea that decency is a safeguard against savagery. If immigration indeed reveals English people’s inner darkness, it is also the case that the mask of good manners worn by Solomon or Dorothy gradually falls apart. In the end, dignified behaviour, once defined by Dorothy as essential to the distinction between human beings and animals, is exposed as a mere civilized pretence. [less ▲]

Planning today is a field in reconstruction where new ways of thinking and making the city are experienced. It is trying to deal with the increasing fragmentation of space and society that is challenging its efficacy - even its relevance. In this chapter, by relying on Actor-Network Theory's concepts and case studies of Beirut's suburbs, we observe and analyze new practices, tools and efforts made to charter new ways for gathering resources and organizing collective action. In these case studies, we can see that in a fragmented city and on a local level, urban development initiatives are not necessarily chaotic juxtapositions of autonomous projects. Local networks including different kinds of actors may well be in action. These local networks represent laboratories experimenting governance arrangements, urban planning tools and territory building strategies by using at-hand resources and know-how. We call this planning approach Bricolage Planning. [less ▲]

Ce chapitre est consacré à la présentation d'une unité de recherche universitaire originale, appelée le LUCID, créé en 2001 à l'Université de Liège (Belgique). Elle figure ici comme une expérience partagée, créée autour de la notion d'innovation et menée avec une approche pluridisciplinaire centrée utilisateur et articulée autour des nouvelles technologies. Dès sa fondation, cette petite structure, très dynamique, a développé un savoir-faire spécifique, rapidement remarqué dans le domaine de l'ingénierie de conception, qui lui vaut d'être régulièrement citée et appelée à participer à des projets innovants. Parallèlement à ses projets, elle conduit une réflexion sur ses propres processus de création qu'elle cherche sans cesse à maîtriser et à diversifier. A l'invitation de l'Institut de l'Innovation INNOVACS de Grenoble, c'est une synthèse de cette analyse qui est proposée ici dans une perspective pratique, pas nécessairement reproductible mais potentiellement porteuse pour celles et ceux qui s'interrogent sur les méthodes opérationnelles de gestion de l'innovation. Ce chapitre est articulé en trois parties. Il présente d'abord l'équipe et quelques-uns de ses projets; il montre ensuite comment elle s'est organisée en termes de ressources humaines et logistiques; enfin, il propose une analyse rétroactive, permettant d'inspirer éventuellement d'autres contextes.

Although Bharati Mukherjee is famous, or rather infamous, for her shameless embrace of America and its melting-pot ideology, in Desirable Daughters India, the homeland, is unexpectedly made to re-enter the stage of immigrant identity construction. In many respects it would seem that it has now become untenable to represent immigrant identity in terms of a one-directional movement from “India” to “America.” In Desirable Daughters the rise of India, the accelerated time/space compression of late capitalism, the post-90s paradigm shift in matters of transnational migration, the emphasis on return migrations and the emergence of a new global interaction indeed dramatically outflank Mukherjee’s previous narrative of American “exceptionalism” – which suddenly seems dated by comparison. By portraying the complex transnational network of connections operating between RIs (Resident Indians) and NRIs (Non Resident Indians), Mukherjee’s book gestures towards the “de-spatialization” of immigrant identity construction and its consequent “re-metaphorization” in terms of “time zones.” What is more, the increasingly compelling influence of contemporary India on the Indo-American diasporic subjectivity marks a “back to the future” return of the repressed which temporally repositions migrant identity between a ghostly time of repetition and a “hauntology” of new becomings. What Mukherjee suggests, I will contend, is that immigrant agency and self-fashioning cannot be associated anymore with the “pioneering spirit” of forward-looking characters that discard their “Indianness” upon (geographical) entry into the West. In my reading of Desirable Daughters the protagonist’s zigzagging path to self-transformation will be emphasized, so that it will become apparent that time has become the fourth space through which new spaces for diasporic identity can be renegotiated.

Poser la question de l’émotion et de sa régulation demande, dans un premier temps, de rediscuter de deux éléments épistémologiques essentiels : la notion d’équilibre, d’une part, et la place du corps et de sa représentation dans le giron des sciences humaines, d’autre part. C’est après avoir discuté de ces prolégomènes essentiels que nous pourrons exposer la conception phénoménologique que nous proposons de la régulation émotionnelle. Si les conceptions usuelles de la régulation émotionnelle sont de considérer qu’il faut réguler les émotions et trouver les mécanismes favorisant cette rétroaction (dans une optique thérapeutique voire orthopédique), notre conception de la régulation émotionnelle est autre. Il ne s’agit pas de réguler l’émotion mais plutôt de considérer cette émotion comme un phénomène de facto relationnel et inscrit dans la régulation. Nous allons tenter de montrer en quoi sans régulation il n’y a pas d’émotion tout comme il n’y aurait pas de régulation sociale sans émotion. [less ▲]

Para entender las representaciones de la violencia bélica en las novelas hispanoamericanas de las últimas décadas, son útiles las categorías que Ariel Dorfman distinguiera en su ya clásico ensayo de 1970, “La violencia en la novela hispanoamericana actual”. Según diagnostica Dorfman, el tema de la violencia en esa novelística se presenta bajo tres formas: violencia vertical entre opresores y oprimidos, violencia horizontal entre seres que ocupan el mismo nivel existencial de desamparo y violencia interior de personajes miedosos, frustrados que roen sus propias entrañas. Aunque esas formas se suelen encontrar de alguna que otra manera en numerosas novelas, el esquema de Dorfman sólo en parte se adecúa a ellas. Al aplicar su propuesta de lectura, uno tiene la sensación incómoda de que se violentan, sea las novelas, sea a Dorfman. Simultáneamente, constatamos que varias novelas establecen algún tipo de relación entre guerra y juego, lo cual nos llevó a buscar soluciones en las teorías del juego y más específicamente en el estudio Homo Ludens, de Johan Huizinga que parece completar el esquema de Dorfman. En esta contribución se resumirá muy brevemente la teoría de Huizinga sobre el juego, con una atención especial a sus ideas sobre la guerra como juego. Después, éstas se aplicarán, tan sólo a manera de ejemplos, a El ejército iluminado (2006) de David Toscana y a La virgen de los sicarios (1994) de Fernando Vallejo. Estos análisis ilustran cómo la desestereotipación del juego por Huizinga desestabiliza las imágenes más comunes que tenemos de la guerra y de la violencia en la literatura hispanoamericana.

Les Systèmes de garantie participatifs (SGP) ou certification participa- tive, opposent à ce mécanisme de contrôle par une Tierce Partie Indépendante (TPI), une double critique : celle de la délégation à une partie extérieure et celle de la réduction de la qualité à la normalisation d’un produit. Cette contestation est aujourd’hui reconnue à travers l’institutionnalisation de la certification participative dans la loi de nombreux pays d’Amérique latine. Elle traduit le refus de la marchandisation de la qualité et de la désappropriation des paysans et consommateurs face à la toute-puissance des organismes certificateurs. Pour analyser la critique qu’adressent les SGP au certification TPI et la proposition de certification participative qui en résulte, nous allons nous appuyer sur un cas du sud brésilien : le réseau Ecovida. Ce réseau, pionnier au sud du Brésil, fait partie aujourd’hui d’un mou- vement beaucoup plus vaste allant de l’Inde à l’Amérique latine ; il s’étend dans les pays du Sud et cherche sa voie dans le sud de l’Europe. Il interroge aujourd’hui certains acteurs en Belgique tels que les Groupes d’achat soli- daires de l’agriculture paysanne (GASAP). Cette proposition est une alter- native « agroécologique » dans la mesure où elle est une tentative conjointe des producteurs et des consommateurs de se réapproprier une définition de la qualité qui s’appuie sur d’autres processus que la marchandisation des produits. De plus, elle cherche à intégrer des éléments novateurs chers à l’agroécologie tels que l’emploi paysan, la souveraineté alimentaire et la prise en compte de la biodiversité. [less ▲]

Electoral districts are not neutral. They reflect political competition as well as they directly influence it.This chapter gives an overview of the redrawing of national electoral districts at the Chamber of Representatives and the Senate since 1830 to 2012 (including the new electoral law for the 'sensitive case' in Belgian politics of the Brussels-Hal-Vilvorde electoral district ). With the process regionalisation and the introduction of regional and community parliaments in the 1970s and the 1980s, the chapter also presents the evolution of electoral districts for the direct elections in the subnational assemblies. Overall, the different maps presented in this work particularly underline the growing magnitude of the electoral districts over times - at both levels of government. [less ▲]

We report a dataset of the partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2) and me-thane concentrations (CH4) in the surface waters of Lake Kivu ob-tained during four cruises covering the two main seasons (rainy and dry). Spatial gradients of surface pCO2 and CH4 concentrations were modest in the main basin. In Kabuno Bay, pCO2 and CH4 concentra-tions in surface waters were higher, owing to the stronger influence of subaquatic springs from depth. Seasonal variations of pCO2 and CH4 in the main basin of Lake Kivu were strongly driven by deepen-ing of the epilimnion and the resulting entrainment of water charac-terized by higher pCO2 and CH4 concentrations. Physical and chem-ical vertical patterns in Kabuno Bay were seasonally stable, owing to a stronger stratification and smaller surface area inducing fetch limi-tation of wind driven turbulence. A global and regional cross-system comparison of pCO2 and CH4 concentrations in surface waters of lakes highlights the peculiarity of Kabuno Bay in terms of pCO2 values in surface waters. In terms of surface CH4 concentrations, both Kabuno Bay and the main basin of Lake Kivu are at the lower end of values in lakes globally, despite the huge amounts of CH4 and CO2 in the deeper layers of the lake.
