Abstract: Candidates in televised debates have (at least) three subsequent goals: They want to act convincingly during the course of the debate, they want to be seen as the winner of the debate afterwards and they ultimately want to benefit from their debate appearance on Election Day. Depending on voters’ personality, these are conflicting goals. To demonstrate this we add the concepts of “need to evaluate” and “need for cognition” to the study of campaigns. Viewers with strong needs should be more attentive and evaluative during the course of the campaign (hypothesis 1). Moreover, judging the overall outcome of the debate afterwards should be easier for them and also be more closely linked to the performance of the debate contenders (hypothesis 2). However, this judgment is less likely to spill over to their overall evaluations of the candidates and their voting intentions, as they are likely to have strong pre-debate attitudes that are hard to alter (hypothesis 3). We use data from a panel study conducted in the context of a televised debate that took place in the 2009 German Election campaign. The panel survey comprised questions covering attitudes towards the candidates and voting intentions (pre- and post-debate waves), perceptions of the debate performance of the candidates as well as scales for need to evaluate and need for cognition (post-debate only). In addition, 300 of our respondents were asked to provide real-time judgments of the candidates during the course of the debate, which allows us to test hypothesis 1.

Abstract: In France, the issue of both regionalization of vocational training and industrial cluster policy focus on new actors: French industrial clusters.
French clusters are situated at the meeting point of two trends. First, they have to select and support vocational training suppliers. Secondly, their goal to promote innovation and R&D programs make face up to HRM issues among Small and Medium Enterprises (SME), which move toward conception and R&D activities. The aerospace cluster industry in PACA region, called Pégase, expresses needs of quantitative prospective in the field of employment, skills and competencies to face this context.

The paper presents an experimental method of quantification based on a dynamic and quantitative approach of the industrial structure of Pégase cluster. This project aims to give insight into adaptation of skills needs in technological SME to both initial and continuing vocational training supply and management of workers’ mobility.

In this paper, we propose to go beyond the standard “adéquationniste” approach. It intends to organise an evaluation of needs by building up competencies profiles defined in terms of disciplinary knowledge and behavioural competencies. On a methodological level, we propose to carry out a typology of SME, representative of the cluster population, based on their technological, strategic and economical position.

Abstract: Admissions into the criminal justice system in the past several decades have presented unique sets of challenges for pretrial service agencies. Many defendants find themselves in the criminal justice system due to needs that may be better served by other human service agencies. Therefore, it is possible that identifying needs at the pretrial stage and connecting individuals to appropriate community services could prevent many individuals from becoming entrenched in the criminal justice system. Very little is known about the needs of pretrial defendants or their effects on pretrial outcomes (i.e., FTAs and new arrests). Assessment tools for identifying these needs are in short supply. Therefore, even though there are current programs and practices that intend to divert individuals from the criminal justice system, there is a possibility that pretrial agencies are missing opportunities to gather information that will aid in the identification and diversion of even more pretrial defendants from the system. This research validates a needs assessment instrument used by the Department of Pretrial Services in Hamilton County, Ohio. This research examines whether the needs of male and female pretrial defendants differ, and if these needs are related to pretrial outcomes.

Abstract: Fourth generation risk assessment instruments in the criminal justice system are used to assign treatment level, assist practitioners in identifying dynamic criminogenic needs and identify barriers to treatment. Recently, Duwe (2013) made an argument that needs assessments do not improve predictive validity, and therefore are unneeded. We argue that despite small increases in predictive validity, needs assessments assist practitioners to administer the best possible treatment. Also, assessing an offender’s needs at multiple points in the system and their lifespan should provide practitioners with a greater number of treatment options. Our claims are consistent with fourth generation assessments that utilize criminological theories to reduce the likelihood an offender’s criminal behavior will occur again. Conducting a needs assessment additionally takes significant focus off organizational liability concerns and places it mostly on the offender’s deficiencies in remaining a law-abiding citizen.

Abstract: Despite a relatively veteran-friendly cultural climate, the development and implementation of Veteran's Treatment Court may not have met with unilateral approval. This research examines the risk/needs profiles of VTC offenders and attitudes toward VTCs from a variety of stakeholder perspectives both inside and outside the legal system to address this issue.
