Capacities of African-oriented Polish NGOs: a quantitative approach

1 Introduction Poland, along with other Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, has been recognised as an emerging donor since the new millennium. The literature concerning Polish development assistance is rich, though it is not diversified in terms of the range of topics. Since the accession of Poland to the European Union, foreign institutions, non-governmental organisations and individual scientists have been analysing the Polish development cooperation system mainly from the perspective of the Visegrad Group countries ( Drążkiewicz-Grodzicka, 2013

Optimal Spatial Allocation of Labour Force and Employment Protection Legislation (EPL)

asymmetric shocks within a monetary union. Recently, thanks to the improvement in data quality and on the grounds of the large asymmetric crisis suffered by the Eurozone, there has been an immense effort to clarify the factors driving the flows of workers in Europe. Most of them go beyond the traditional economic motivation behind labour migration. E. Sprenger ( Sprenger, 2013 ) has pointed out the importance of some of these variables, such as linguistic proximity, immigrant networks and geographic factors. Moreover, M. Kahanec ( Kahanec, 2013 ) focuses on the effect of

Adaptive Development of a Regional Spatial Data Infrastructure Facing Local Prospects and Socio-Technological Trends

For example, since 2004 the OpenStreetMap consortium has enabled enthusiastic amateur mappers to produce local knowledge for new geospatial information ( Sadeghi-Niaraki et al ., 2010 ). In the late 2010s, increasing the links of GI with a variety of
