Beschreibung:
This class examines the typical Japanese Management Control System. Management Control is a core concept in Management Accounting. We will discuss the system to realize Management Control in organization.
Management Control System has been discussed as a vertical control system. Regarding that system, how top or higher managers motivate lower managers to achieve the goal or target had been discussed. How to utilize Management Control System to achieve the fixed goal had been discussed. But in Simons (1995), that traditional Management Control System was discussed as diagnostic control system. In Simons(1995), interactive control system was proposed. Since the proposal of interactive control system, the emergence of strategy by Management Control System has been expected and discussed. By the mixture use of diagnostic and interactive control systems, the strategy execution and the emergence of strategy has been expected. The traditional Management Control System had been separated from the strategy. But since the Simons(1995), Management Control System has been discussed with the strategy in an integrated manner.
By Simons(1995), the big change was raised in Management Control System. But Management Control System has been discussed in the vertical context between higher managers and lower managers. In Japanese Management Control System, the horizontal context has played the important role. We have to pay attention to the mechanism between the horizontal context and the vertical context. Management Control System has basically been the vertical system. But why the horizontal mechanism has played the important role in Japanese Management Control System is an important point.

Beschreibung:
The migration sociology is without doubt one of the „hyphan-sociologies“, that have received more and more attention in the last years.
This lecture tries to reflect the heterogeneity of this area, both with regard to theoretical as well as to empiricial aspects.
The sociological treatment of the origins of migration on the one hand and its consequences on the other hand will be dealt with in the lecture.
Special emphasis will be put on the consequences for the migrants themselves as well as on the reactions of the local people and the general consequences of migration for the receiving society.
This lecture wants to impart expert knowledge in the area of migration sociology, not only by means of description but also on the basis of theories and empirical findings.


Die Migrations­soziologie gehört ohne Zweifel zu den „Bindestrich-Soziologien“, die in den letzten Jahren einen merklichen Aufschwung erfahren haben.

In dieser Veranstaltung wird versucht die Heterogenität des Feldes, sowohl in theoretischer als auch in empirischer Hinsicht widerzuspiegeln.

Im Zentrum der Veranstaltung steht die soziologische Beschäftigung mit den Ursachen von Wanderungs­bewegungen auf der einen Seite und mit ihren Folgen auf der anderen Seite.

Bei letzteren stehen sowohl die Folgen für die Migranten selbst, als auch die Reaktionen der Einheimischen und die generellen Folgen der Einwanderung für die Aufnahme­gesellschaft im Vordergrund.

Ziel der Veranstaltung ist es, nicht nur durch Deskription sondern auch auf der Grundlage von Theorien und empirischen Belegen, Fach­wissen im Bereich Migrations­soziologie zu vermitteln.

Beschreibung:
Content: The lecture introduces into political science research on European integration and the European Union, with particular reference to the empirical analytical literature on the history of European integration, the institutional functioning of the European Union and its implications for representative democracy. Three questions are at the center of the lecture:
  • Firstly, the theories on European integration and supranational governance: How can one explain from a political science point of view the essential features of European integration? Who are the key players, what interests are they pursuing, and how have solutions been achieved over the past 70 years?
  • Secondly, criticism on the democratic deficit and legitimacy of European integration: How democratic and legitimate is the European Union as a political system? Can the empowering of the European Parliament overcome this criticism? Which (reform) solutions exist from a political science perspective to overcome future challenges of European integration?
  • Thirdly, interdependence between the European Union and the member states: How does the European Union interact with representative democracies in the Member States, how does it operate globally? What role do citizens, stakeholders and parties play in issues of European integration and European Union decisions?
As an accompanying reading, I recommend reading the book by Simon Hix and Bjorn Hoyland. 2011. The Political System of the European Union, Basingstoke: Palgrave. Furthermore, basic information can be found at https://europa.eu/european-union/about-eu_en.
In general, I recommend regular reading of publications in journals published in the European Integration and European Union topics, such as European Union Politics and the Journal of Common Market Studies, while up-to-date information can be found in the EU Observer and Europe Daily Bulletin.

Aims:
  • Ability to understand and select political science studies on European integration and the European Union;
  • Excellent knowledge of the state of research on the main approaches to European integration and the European Union;
  • Scientific understanding of the functioning of the integration steps and the political system of the European Union;
  • Theoretical and methodological knowledge for the study of European integration and the European Union.
  • Applying skills and knowledge to related or future problems of European integration and the European Union.

Statistical skills are essential for students of any empirically oriented social science. In the study of political science an understanding of statistical data analysis is necessary not only for conducting analysis, but also for understanding a significant proportion of the empirical political science literature. This course is an introduction to data analysis in empirical political research. We will introduce the basic methods of data analysis using the statistical software package Stata. The course aims to provide students with an appreciation of what good statistical analysis can achieve, how to use statistical methods appropriately and with confidence and how to interpret the results produced by those methods clearly and correctly.

The growth of forensic psychology as a science in the recent decades represents an evolution in profiling and crime detection. Understanding the causes and characteristics of deviant actions – commonly known as abnormal behavior – is crucial in determining diagnoses, planning intervention strategies and answering forensic referral questions.

In this course, students will acquire a broad understanding of psychopathologies related to crime. They are provided with an extensive overview of the main topics, such as criminal profiling, psychology in the criminal courts, the links to legal systems and related topics. Furthermore criminal behavior will be examined and challenges in the field will be discussed.
Moreover, special issues such as cybercrime, family violence, victimology, and police psychology will be covered.

The course is law oriented, which means the roles that forensic psychology professional could have in the court system will be explored and basic psychology knowledge will be delivered.

Beschreibung:
The growth of forensic psychology as a science in the recent decades represents an evolution in profiling and crime detection. Understanding the causes and characteristics of deviant actions – commonly known as abnormal behavior – is crucial in determining diagnoses, planning intervention strategies and answering forensic referral questions.

In this course, students will acquire a broad understanding of psychopathologies related to crime. They are provided with an extensive overview of the main topics, such as criminal profiling, psychology in the criminal courts, the links to legal systems and related topics. Furthermore criminal behavior will be examined and challenges in the field will be discussed.
Moreover, special issues such as cybercrime, family violence, victimology, and police psychology will be covered.

The course is law oriented, which means the roles that forensic psychology professional could have in the court system will be explored and basic psychology knowledge will be delivered.

Simulating the United Nations Security Council (Seminar, englisch)
Vorlesungs­typ:
Seminar
ECTS:
8.0
Kurs geeignet für:
Bachelor, Master
Kurssprache:
englisch
Registrierungs­informationen:
Have you ever wondered how the United Nations Security Council arrives at its (sometimes controversial) decisions? Are you interested in how decision-making procedures within the Security Council function and what role the five permanent members play in this context?

These as well as other questions will be at the core of the present seminar, which is designed as a policy simulation and consists of two phases: in a first step, students are designated the role of Security Council members (e.g. single states or other actors such as the UN Secretary General), which they will later represent in the context of the simulation (roles are distributed in the first session). While you will have to complete the research required for fulfilling your role mostly off-class, there will be at least two on-site sessions at which you can ask questions and further prepare for your role. It may be the case that you end up representing states and policies that do not reflect your personal opinion!
The second phase will then comprise a full day of simulating the work of the Security Council, based on a real UNSC Resolution (the text of which will be circulated in due course). This means: you will participate not in your capacity as a student, but as an “official” state representative (and it is strongly expected to stay in that role throughout the day!).

Further required readings as well as additional material will be provided electronically. Mode of assessment for this course is a brief report based on the experiences made within the context of the simulation. Since this is a policy simulation, active oral participation is indispensable.

Registrierungs­informationen:
This course will provide students with the knowledge of the technological and regulatory framework applying to energy markets. It will address the relevant issues of governance and liberalization of particular markets such as electricity and gas. Furthermore, the institutional legal framework will be explored, with the main focus on the European Union and the internal energy market it seeks to create.
After presenting the regulatory framework and energy policy developments on the international and the EU level, the course will focus on competition rules, international trade in energy and energy subsidies.
The following part of the course will examine how policy incentives for climate change mitigation affect the energy sector, with the EU often used as a case example. It will cover the current developments in Climate Change Law, legal and policy matters associated with the renewable energy sector, and the role of exemplary international organizations in the creation of more sustainable energy policies.
The course will be conducted through lectures, discussions and seminars. Next to the results of the final written exam also the seminar presentation will contribute to the overall grade for this course.
