New Institutions on the Block

Fernanda De Castro Brandão Martins
The rise of emerging markets and the creation of the BRICS group point to changes in international governance. This paper takes into account the initiatives that have emerged within the BRICS grouping regarding global financial governance, and considers the possible impact of these institutions. Brazil and China are very different countries, even though both are part of the BRICS and share common interests regarding the promotion of development and greater influence for developing countries over...

New Globaliser in the Hood

Diego Trindade D'Ávila Magalhães
During most of the 19th century, the UK was the primary driver of economic globalisation in Brazil. In the early 20th century, the US surpassed the British as Brazil’s main economic partner. Since 2009, China has become Brazil’s most important trade partner. Nowadays, Washington pushes for deglobalisation, while Beijing paves the way to reinforce globalisation. Accordingly, the global interconnection of the Brazilian economy increasingly depends on China. This article analyses how China is globalising the...

A Decade of Emergence

Leonardo Ramos, Ana Garcia, Diego Pautasso & Fernanda Cristina Ribeiro Rodrigues
The article aims at presenting a discussion about the processes of institutionalization and the expansion of the BRICS through its eight summits. Two issue areas will be emphasised: (i) international political economy – particularly international development – and (ii) international security. The hypothesis is that the BRICS forum has passed through an institutional densification process – see the New Development Bank and the Contingent Reserve Agreement. In such a process, despite the increasing relevance of...

Integration and Regional Industrial Development

Jiayi Han
Integration, a phenomenon in the process of economic growth, has been acting as essential to productivity growth and regional industrial development. It enhances regional economy through certain economic relationships between economic entities and between regions, including exchange and agglomeration. Hence, economists have long been attracted to the continued exploration of internal mechanisms and functions of integration that would lead to improved productivity and industrial performance. Aiming to provide a theoretical reference with a practical value...

Grid integration of solar PV for multi-apartment buildings

Smail Kozarcanin & Gorm Bruun Andresen
Several studies show that large installations of rooftop solar PV in residential low voltage grids, typically with many single family dwellings, may cause overvoltage issues during mid-day when local consumption is low and solar PV electricity generation high. Different so-called smart grid technologies, which often requires additional control, communication and monitoring equipment have been suggested to alleviate these and related problems. In this paper, solar PV integration is studied in the context of multi-apartment buildings...

Biaxial Fatigue Testing and Simulation of Cruciform Sub-Structure

Random allocation of students into small groups in problem-based learning can create significant between-group variation during the assessment process

Timothy Work & Yves Mauffette
In problem-based learning large cohorts of students are divided into smaller groups that pursue learning objectives with separate instructors called tutors. This presents challenges for tutors tasked with providing similar educational experiences and assessment of multiple groups of students. Here we evaluated between-group variation in test scores that are attributable solely to random sampling without replacement process used to form smaller groups. We then compared this with the actual between-group variation in test scores in...

Value, What Value? University Business Model in Pursuit of Advanced Internationalization

Anita Juho & Romeo V. Turcan
Through business model theoretical lenses, we explore challenges universities face in their pursuit of advanced internationalization into foreign markets. This is a conceptual paper. Based on theoretical and empirical insights we conjecture that advanced internationalization of universities is unethical, calling for a revision of business model theory to incorporate ethics.

Editorial: Introduction to the Special Issue based on papers presented at the Business Model Conference 2018

Marco Montemari
Editorial introducing the short papers selected from the 2nd Business Model Conference, where more than 60 academics and practitioners attended and more than 40 papers were presented.


Marie Jull Sørensen
New technology – new opportunities – new challenges – new regulation? This is the common line of thought in the 10 contributions in this special issue on online intermediary platforms. The 10 contributions each provide a critical view on how online intermediary platforms fit in the context of the authors’ areas of expertise. The contributions cover overarching regulatory models and frameworks along with specific problem areas such as consumer law, labour law and tax law...

Territorial stigmatisation and the negotiation of place

Jørgen Riber Christensen & Kim Toft Hansen
The article addresses the negotiated meaning of notorious places through a consideration of a recent tendency in Danish TV documentaries where marginalized, often peripheral, places are portrayed and debated. Based partly on sociological research about territorial stigmatisation, partly on location studies as a method, the article stresses that inhabitants often contest and contradict the mediated stigmatization of their towns from an ambivalent position. On the one hand, participants in the programs are aware of the...

The Work of Art

Frederik Tygstrup
The modern idea of art has been in place for about two centuries. It has concurred with two other features of modernity: that of developed capitalist economy, and that of the new democratic public sphere. This article explores some of the relationships between art, capitalism and democracy. It argues that the notion of art heralded by modern aesthetic theories mainly hinges on the epistemic form of the commodity, highlighting the interaction between a producer, a...
