The Quest for Responsibility

Author: Mark Bovens
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521628989
Release Date: 1998-03-12
Genre: Business & Economics

The search for responsibility in complex organisations often seems an impossible undertaking. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach combining law, social science, ethics and organisational design, Mark Bovens analyses the reasons for this, and offers possible solutions. He begins by examining the problem of 'many hands' - because so many people contribute in so many different ways, it is very difficult to determine who is accountable for organisational behaviour. Four possible solutions - corporate, hierarchical, collective and individual accountability - are analysed from normative, empirical and practical perspectives. Bovens argues that individual accountability is the most promising solution, but only if individuals have the chance to behave responsibly. The book then explores the implications of this approach. What does it mean to be a 'responsible' employee or official? When is it legitimate to disobey the orders of superiors? What institutional designs might be most appropriate?

A Key to Dutch History

Author: Commissie Ontwikkeling Nederlandse Canon
Publisher: Amsterdam University Press
ISBN: 9053564985
Release Date: 2007
Genre: History

Many think they know the legends behind tulipmania and the legacy of the Dutch East India Tea Company, but what basic knowledge of Dutch history and culture should be passed on to future generations? A Key to Dutch History and its resulting overview of historical highlights, assembled by a number of specialists in consultation with the Dutch general public, provides a thought-provoking and timely answer. The democratic process behind the volume is reminiscent of the way in which the Netherlands has succeeded for centuries at collective craftsmanship, and says as much about the Netherlands as does the outcome of the opinions voiced.

Politics in the Dutch Economy

Author: Bart Snels
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9780429822162
Release Date: 2018-12-20
Genre: Business & Economics

First published in 1999, this volume surveys economic theories of political mechanisms as well as political theories of the influence of the institutional context in which decisions about social economic policies are being made. In the first half of the seventeenth century the Dutch Republic emerged as one of Europe's leading maritime powers. The political and military leadership of this small country was based on large-scale borrowing from an increasingly wealthy middle-class of merchants, manufacturers and regents This volume presents the first comprehensive account of the political economy of the Dutch republic from the sixteenth to the early nineteenth century. Building on earlier scholarship and extensive new evidence it tackles two main issues: the effect of political revolution on property rights and public finance, and the ability of the nation to renegotiate issues of taxation and government borrowing in changing political circumstances.

Dutch Studies

Author: P. Brachin
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401175067
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Foreign Language Study

The language of some eighteen million people living at the junction of the two great cultures of western Europe, Romance and Germanic, is now taught by some 262 teachers at I43 universities outside the Netherlands, ineluding Finland, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Czecho slovakia, Portugal, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea. These teachers obviously need to keep in regular and elose touch with the two countries whose culturallife forms the subject of their courses. Yet the first international congress of Dutch teachers abroad did not take place until the early sixties, since when the Colloquium Neerlandicum has become a triennial event, meeting alternately in the Netherlands and Belgium, in The Hague (I96I and I967), Brussels (I964) Ghent (I970) with the fifth Colloquium planned for Leiden in I973. Financial support from the Dutch and Belgian governments enables the majority of European colleagues, and a number of those from other continents, to attend a conference lasting for four or five days and ineluding discussions of the problems involved in teaching Dutch abroad and papers on various aspects of current Dutch studies of interest to those who are working in a certain degree of isolation abroad. At the first Colloquium a Working Committee of Professors and Lecturers in Dutch studies at Universities abroad was set up.

Het verhaal van Khadija Op een dag was de Profeet Mohammed, vrede zij met hem, in de Grot van Hira met de engel Jibril, of Gabriël. Jibril zag Khadija van ver aankomen in de richting van de Grot. Hij zei tegen de profeet: “Khadija komt er aan. Zij heeft wat te drinken en te eten voor je meegebracht.” En hij voegde er aan toe: “Als zij binnenkomt, doe haar dan de groeten van haar Heer en vertel dat zij in het Paradijs een huis van parelen tot haar beschikking heeft waar ze geen moeilijkheden meer zal ondervinden en geen last zal hebben van lawaai.” Toen Khadija aankwam, zei de profeet tegen haar: “Hier is Jibril. Hij doet jou de groeten van jouw Heer en hij groet jou zelf ook.” Khadija antwoordde: “Allah is vrede en Hij is de Bron van alle Vrede! Dat Allah’s vrede en zegeningen op jou mogen neerdalen, o Boodschapper van Allah. En groet Jibril ook van mij!”
