Abstract: How can we explain variation in Security Council support for international criminal courts? While support for tribunals among the Council’s liberal members is widely attributed to the growing power of international humanitarian law, such explanations fail to account for the behavior of the Council’s illiberal permanent members—Russia and China. Examining Security Council behavior from the creation of ad hoc tribunals to the ICC, this paper shows how variation in support for international criminal courts is shaped by political instrumentalism. For liberal democracies, international tribunals represent one option for dealing with violent conflicts, one generally seen as less costly and less risky than other options. For illiberal members of the Council, behavior is primarily a function of how a state’s relative power and its level of relative interdependence shape its grand strategy. In instances of declining relative power and growing interdependence, illiberal states become increasingly sensitive to audience costs from states within their dependence network. This can increase the relative importance of soft power and create incentives to support international justice institutions favored by liberal democratic states.

Abstract: This paper will present the case study of the integrity assessment in Serbia, highlight the results of this assessment in a comparative perspective with the assessment results in the other countries where similar methodologies have been implied (Ukraine, Armenia, Tunisia), and question the relevance of the findings for new understanding of trust, participation and equity in education.

The OECD released the report Strengthening Integrity and Fighting Corruption in Education in Serbia in September, 2012, as the first pilot assessment using the INTES research framework. Four dimensions of integrity were assessed: access to education, quality of education, sound management of staff and resources, and capacity for corruption detection and prosecution. The goal of this first study was to identify shortcomings in education policy which created demand for corrupt practice, and to point out gaps in regulatory structures, financing mechanisms, or legal requirements which allow corruption to happen. The researchers hypothesized that such gaps have the potential to put teachers, school principals and school governing boards, and parents and students in positions where they have a strong incentive or even a practical imperative to act in violation of regulations.

For example, existing rules at the time the research was conducted made teachers and school principals depend on each other for appointment and reappointments. There was also a lack of transparent guidelines for hiring and firing of staff. In times when shrinking student numbers and austerity measures threaten the job prospects of many education professionals in Serbia, this means that political affiliation and/or bribes began to matter more than competence—a perception shared also by students, parents, and the wider community.

Identifying and discussing policy failure and regulatory gaps or inconsistencies, which have the potential to make corruption a survival strategy, proved to be a successful catalyst for reform than monitoring and punishing the violations of individual teachers or schools. During the analysis and initial discussions of recommendations with the government, the report triggered considerable policy response and led to the preparation of, amendments to the laws on primary and on secondary education by adding recruitment procedures for teachers in line with findings. This review was conducted in partnership between the OECD and the Government of Serbia without significant involvement of civil society groups to organize the participation of teacher, parents and other stakeholders. However, the Government’s deep commitment to reform at the time of the review was enough to persuade civil society groups to take the report’s recommendations seriously as a tool for accountability and advocacy.

The findings show that although the countries that have applied the same or similar methodology have very different education systems along many characteristics (Ukraine, Armenia, Tunisia), still the types of actual violations, types of incentives and opportunities show quite a similar pattern indicating areas of general vulnerability of the education systems. In all countries, for example, private tutoring by class teachers in secondary educations, or undue recognition of learning achievement in higher education was easily detected as integrity violation, while missing parental participation surfaced among some of the most often identified system shortcomings creating incentives for integrity violations. Furthermore, a dynamic relationship between equity in education and integrity has been found throughout the countries.

Abstract: Après avoir édité le catalogue complet de la bibliothèque d'Érasme, basé sur deux inventaires manuscrits conservés à Bâle, puis un article sur les ouvrages conservés de cette bibliothèque, cette intervention mettra en lumière la bibliothèque intérieure d'Érasme, c'est-à-dire, la liste des ouvrages qu'il a lus et utilisés tout au long de sa carrière, même si ils ne se trouvent pas dans les deux inventaires rédigés après le décès de l'humaniste en 1536.

Abstract: Using a cross-sectional survey of employees in a North Carolina Agency conducted in the winter 2000 (n = 1711), we undertake regression analyses examining employee perceptions of trust in supervisors, middle managers, and top managers. These three, separate, but related, foci of trust are analyzed with respect to the affect of employee job satisfaction or motivational factors. Job satisfaction is divided into two aspects. First, internal-role working conditions (resources available, equity considerations, training, existence of a grievance and discipline system, fairness of the grievance and discipline system, pay, safety, and benefits) focus on job specific attitudes. Second, external-role interpersonal relations (employee communications, management communications, supervisory communications, managerial concern for employees, career goals, and performance appraisal) tap organizational system or environment issues. This represents a test of a Herzbergian, two-factor -- maintenance and motivational -- approach. Results indicate small to moderate contributions from a number of the maintenance and motivational factors adding up to a substantial variance explanation. Resource Availability and, to some extent, Benefits ascendingly affect perceptions of trust among supervisors, middle managers, and top managers. Similarly, there are distinct descending influences on trust for supervisors, middle managers, and top managers from Performance Appraisal and Communications with Others.
