The \"Asia-Pacific Dream\": Is China Using Economic Integration Initiatives as Ideological Weapons? – On The Link Between Free Trade Agreements, Soft Power and \"Universal Values\"

Anke Berndzen
This article examines the function and role of the "Asia-Pacific Dream" (including the FTAAP) in China's foreign policy strategy by analysing the speech in which Xi Jinping promoted this dream, and creating a link between China's push for regional economic integration, soft power strategy and "universal values". While China is promoting this concept and the FTAAP to increase its influence in the region, the U.S. have also been rebalancing to Asia through different means, such...

Directors’ Duties and Corporate Social Responsibility under German Law – Is Tort Law Litigation Changing the Picture?

Peter Rott
This article discusses the right and a potential duty of directors to pursue CSR policies under German law. It first explains the two main duties of directors: to make sure that the company complies with its legal obligations, which has been broadly interpreted in Germany to include the duty to extend to domestic and foreign subsidiaries’ compliance with the law, and to act for the (economic) benefit of the company. CSR policies will often only...

Editorial - Smart district heating and energy system analyses

Poul Alberg Østergaard & Henrik Lund
This editorial introduces the 13th volume of the International Journal of Sustainable Energy Planning and Management, which addresses thermal storage systems in district heating systems, simulation of scheduling of energy units as well as the structure of pricing systems for district heating in Sweden. Beyond the area of district heating, the volume probes into the effects of energy price reductions on energy demand in Hungary as well as the geographical distribution of electricity demand and...

Allocation of annual electricity consumption and power generation capacities across multiple voltage levels in a high spatial resolution

Ludwig Hülk, Lukas Wienholt, Ilka Cußmann, Ulf Philipp Müller, Carsten Matke & Editha Kötter
The electrical energy system is in transition. There is continuing expansion of renewable generation, which causes a spatial and temporal shift of energy flows at different voltage levels of the power grid. On the consumption side, demand patterns are expected to change. The limited availability of data with high spatial resolution hinders independent and transparent assessments. In view of this, the research project open_eGo is developing methods focusing on electricity networks and open-science principles. In...

Discursive legitimation in online crowdfunding: A study of Kickstarter projects promoting human rights

Ana Kedves
The internet-based crowdfunding platforms have in many ways changed the way projects are nowadays funded. Apart from opening to the small businesses, it has created funding opportunities for non-governmental organisations, citizens’ initiatives, non-formal groups and individual projects, which used to have rather limited access to this sort of resources. However, the widening and liberalisation of the market poses new challenges for these entities as well – the project ideas have to be effectively elaborated in...

Musik og billeddannelse (GIM) med PTSD-ramte flygtninge: Introduktion til tre single case-studier

Bolette Daniels Beck & Torben Moe
Mange flygtninge kommer fra kulturer med helt andre forestillinger og begreber om årsager til og forventninger om behandling af psykisk lidelse end man almindeligvis anvender i psykiatrien. F.eks. er psykisk lidelse i mange mellemøstlige kulturer forbundet med skam, og udtrykkes måske derfor snarere i form af fysisk smerte. For at et behandlingsforløb skal lykkes, er der behov for kulturel sensitivitet hos behandleren, når der skal samarbejdes med tolken, skabes et møde på tværs af kulturer...

China's People-to-people Diplomacy and Its Importance to China-EU Relations: A Historical Institutionalism Perspective

Shichen Wang
People-to-people exchange has become a heated topic of the Chinese foreign policy. Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, China has established people-to-people dialogues with the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, France and Russia. In 2012, China and the EU established a high-level dialogue for people-to-people exchange, making people-to-people exchange the third pillar of China-EU relations. However, China is not a newcomer to people-to-people exchanges with Europe. Why does China launch the...

Soft Power and Tourism: A Study of Chinese Outbound Tourism to Africa

Yu-Wen Chen & Niall Duggan
The increase of Sino-African interactions in trade, aid and investments has attracted Chinese tourists to Africa. The Beijing Action Plan of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) outlines China’s cultural diplomacy in Africa, delineating a number of areas of cultural cooperation: education; press, publishing and media; and tourism and people-to-people exchange programs in academia and think tanks among young people, women and athletes. Though scholars of International relations (IR) have detected that tourism is one...

Venezuela and China: Independency and Dependency in the Context of Interdependent Hegemony

Óscar García Agustín
In a world order without a sole hegemon, the dialectic relationship between the main global players and emerging powers enables nation-states to strategically favor their national interests as well as mutually beneficial alliances, whilst the multipolar world becomes strengthened. This article draws on this context of 'interdependent hegemony' to explore the existing relationship between Venezuela, as a swing state, and China, as one of the Big Three global powers. Particularly, I focus on Venezuelan efforts...

Åbninger og lukninger i e-mailkorrespondance på fire sprog

This paper describes different strategies of politeness in e-mail communication between students and teachers and between colleagues in Academia. The data are found in e-mails in the following languages: Danish, Swedish, French, and Italian. The aim of the study is to give insights into differences and similarities across languages and cultures. The analyses are anchored in pragmatically oriented research in politeness as well as the diasystematic dimensions, as proposed by Eugenio Coseriu, and inspired by...
