The thirty-five chapters in this book are edited versions of papers presented at the Advanced Research Workshop, State Intervention on Behalf of Children and Youth, which took place in Maratea, Italy, February 20-24, 1989. The Workshop was attended by leading child welfare researchers from most of the Western countries. Represented were scholars and practitioners from disciplines as diverse as law, social work, neurology, economics, political science, education, psychology, and psychiatry. This variety of disciplines considerably enriched the discussions at the Workshop and is reflected in a set of interesting and, we believe, potentially useful research papers. This book is divided into four sections, each dealing with dominant themes of state intervention. The first section deals with research on organizing for state intervention and related ways of providing accountability. The second section deals with research on young persons in conflict with the law, the third with research on child abuse and the final section with research on children in care. Many of the matters addressed in these papers relate to more than one of the topical theme headings and, therefore, might well have been located in different sections of the volume. Each section is introduced by an introductory statement that provides an overview of the papers and issues addressed, and suggests an agenda of research work to be undertaken. These introductions are based largely on workshop discussions and do not necessarily represent the views of their identified authors.

In Care and After

A Positive Perspective

Based on research from the Thomas Coram Research Unit, the contributors to this text look at the views and experiences of young people and provide an encouraging outlook of what those in care have the potential to achieve. Those factors that help to result in more successful outcomes are identified, and policy recommendations are made, for enabling young people in and leaving care to triumph when the odds are stacked against them. In Care and After adds a new dimension to the current literature on local authority care of young people and children. Those working within the fields of social care, health and education as well as students on social work courses will find this essential reading and a welcome addition.

Análisis pragmalingüístico de resoluciones de conflictos: las mediaciones laborales. Propuestas de investigación

Nuestras pretensiones en esta investigación se centran en analizar las mediaciones laborales desde la perspectiva de la pragmalingüística, si bien es cierto que para delimitar el terreno propio de este género discursivo hacemos un estudio comparativo de los juicios, los arbitrajes, las conciliaciones y las mediaciones, en este último caso abordamos también las mediaciones educativas en contextos interculturales. Para llevar a cabo este análisis ofrecemos un capítulo introductorio donde tratamos el conflicto, así como una aclaración sobre los géneros extrajudiciales de resolución de conflictos, haciendo hincapié en las mediaciones. A continuación, ofrecemos un repaso diacrónico de estos géneros (anexo 1). Del mismo modo, aportamos un estado de la cuestión comentando algunos trabajos que se han realizado sobre este tema cuya base sea lingüística, en particular, o bien comunicativa, en general. En el apartado de fundamentación teórica incluimos la descripción del marco comunicativo, puesto que en los distintos géneros analizados nos encontramos con una estructura triádica, en lugar de los clásicos estudios binarios que habitualmente han sido descritos en las investigaciones sobre comunicación. De otro lado, mostramos un análisis léxico-semántico de los diferentes vocablos que estamos manejando, sirviéndonos de fuentes tan dispares como las diversas ediciones de los diccionarios de la Real Academia de la Lengua Española, diccionarios jurídicos, manuales de derecho y manuales sobre los métodos extrajudiciales de resolución de conflictos. También presentamos un estudio de las

Assessing Systematic Evidence in Crime and Justice

Methodological Concerns and Empirical Outcomes

What are the factors that shape crime and justice policy? Long-term traditions-steeped in politics, ideology, values, ethics, and faith-along with clinical experience have served as the primary guides for policymakers. However, many contemporary scholars, practitioners, and policymakers encourage heavier reliance on scientific research to form crime and justice policy. Along with this shift toward evidence-based crime prevention, it becomes crucial for practitioners to accurately identify and understand which programs and practices have been the most effective in the past. So relying on systematic reviews of prior research and evaluation is central to the movement toward a more scientific approach to policymaking. The surge of research and evaluation in crime and justice raises a myriad of methodological concerns. This special issue of The ANNALS, which sprang from the Second Annual Jerry Lee Crime Prevention Symposium held at the University of Maryland in April 2002, identifies and addresses those methodological concerns and also presents substantive empirical outcomes of specific studies. Developed by the Campbell Collaboration Crime and Justice Group, which continues to focus on issues of evidence, this journal provides valuable insights to researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in the promotion and development of an evidence-based approach to crime and justice policy and practice.

Die Kommunikationswissenschaft hat sich national unterschiedlich entwickelt, unterliegt aber auch transnationalen Einflüssen. Der Band vergleicht kommunikationswissenschaftliche Forschung in Europa, den USA und exemplarisch den Schwellenländern. Welche Großregionen geben den Ton an? Gilt der Blick in die USA für alle Fachcommunities? Herrschen in der Theoriebildung nationale oder transnationale Referenzgrößen vor? In Bezug auf welche Basistheorien und welche Theorien mittlerer Reichweite? Im Mittelpunkt stehen zwei Forschungsbereiche, die die meisten nationalen Fachgemeinschaften miteinander teilen: die Öffentlichkeits- und die Nutzungsforschung. Welche Ausprägungen haben sie international und wie reagieren sie auf aktuelle Prozesse wie die Globalisierung und die Digitalisierung?
