Listen and talk to the older patients: a critical emancipatory reflection on the practice of communication issues

reflection is a process by which individuals identify and question the assumptions underpinning their action to develop alternative behaviors. 4 As for critical emancipatory reflection, it can lead to transformative action by freeing practitioners from assumptions and oppressive forces that limit them and their practice. 5 2 Method In this paper, the critical emancipatory reflection, as well as reflexivity, critical social theory, and hegemony, will be applied to uncover various power relationships and constraining forces in the authors’ practice involved in

Governance and Design of Urban Infostructures
Analysing Key Socio-Technical Systems for the Vulnerability and Resilience of Cities

infostructures for the identification and assessment of vulnerabilities, and for the adaptive and transformative capacity of cities. To address these issues, we first delineate how we understand the concepts of "vulnerability" and "resilience" in the context of urban development, deriving the basic criteria for assessing the role of infostructures ( Sect. 2 ). We then draw on the concepts of socio-technical systems and infostructures in order to establish a framework for analysis ( Sect. 3 ). From this, key technology issues and choices ( Sect. 4 ) and current regimes

In defence of the case study methodology for research into strategy practice

are of equal, if not greater, importance ( Perry, 1998 ). The choice of case sites should involve discretion and judgement ( Amaratunga and Baldry, 2001 ). Cases should be selected for their ability to contribute to the overall investigation rather than a logic predicated on convenience ( Poulis et al., 2013 ; Stake, 1995 ). The identification of a population of possible case study sites is a good starting point and is crucial to the case selection process. An appropriate population ‘helps to define the limits for generalising the findings’ ( Eisenhardt, 1989 : 537

“Roma” Label: The Deconstructed and Reconceptualized Category within the Pentecostal and Charismatic Pastoral Discourse in Contemporary Slovakia

(“Roma”) is currently being promoted as a neutral term. I recognize the term Roma as a politically correct umbrella term. Nevertheless, I take the view that in the research of ethnicity, identification and self-identification of ethnic groupings is important; that is why I will use the original (ethnic) label Cigáni translated here as Gypsies, for retaining the original context as much as possible and the term “Roma” as the translation of the label Rómovia as integral parts of quotations from pastoral or converts’ narratives, or again, for retaining the original

(\Omega)}\subset{H^{-1}(\Omega)}$ . Observe that as a result of the previous identification, we can abuse of the notation considering l ∈ L 2 (Ω) but continue denoting ( l,u ) as l ( u ). The duality product between L p (Ω) and L q (Ω) (where q is the conjugate exponent of p ) will be denoted by (·,·), and the norm in L s (Ω) will be represented by ||·|| L s (Ω) with s ≥ 1. We also denote by 〈·,·〉 the duality product between H −1 (Ω) + L q (Ω) and H 0 1 ( Ω ) ∩ L p ( Ω ) $H^1_0(\Omega)\cap{L^p(\Omega)}$ . Definition 1 A weak solution to ( 1 ) is a

Microfoundations of dynamic capabilities for innovation: a review and research agenda

interact with the resource base to ‘reconfigure’ and ‘refresh’ existing resources and ‘create’ new ones ( Ambrosini and Bowman, 2009 : 29). These capabilities therefore enable the organisation to ‘reflexively revisit’ what it does in changing environments ( Felin and Foss, 2009 : 161). While no doubt significant, the precise relationship between innovation and dynamic capabilities remains somewhat contested ( Breznik and Hisrich, 2014 ). Wang and Ahmed (2007) conceptualise innovation capability as a ‘critical component’ of dynamic capability. Early work by Lawson

The novelty of this line of questioning lies in spanning several fields of research and implies both methodological and theoretical reflexivity to contain its historical object. Our work requires adopting a ›remote reading‹ posture. We shall use ›sentiment analysis‹, a well-known set of computer-assisted methods for

Planning at Sea: Shifting planning practices at the German North Sea coast

; Bruns 2010 ). Recent studies have, however, shown that Marine Spatial Planning takes place in a contested context of multiple functions, perceptions, values and framings of marine issues with significant implications for the development of planning and management strategies ( Gee 2010 ; Ritchie/Ellis 2010 ; Kannen 2014 ). Critical contributions to the growing literature on Marine Spatial Planning from academic spatial planning scholars have however argued for in-depth reflexive engagement with Marine Spatial Planning from a social science perspective ( Peel
