Investors' perception of business group membership during an economic crisis : Evidence from the COVID-19 pandemic

Ducret, Romain

(Working Papers SES ; 524)

This paper examines how investors perceive business group membership in Korea during the COVID-19 pandemic. Stock price performance analysis reveals evidence of a time-varying and heterogeneous value of affiliation: investors discount business group affiliation during a market collapse, but are willing to pay a premium for affiliation during market recovery. Overall, this pattern is more...

Engi, Lorenz

Der vorliegende Beitrag analysiert die rechtlichen Grundlagen eines solchen Engagements. Dazu wird besonders die Grundfrage untersucht, ob und inwiefern die anerkannten Kirchen an die...

Mandatory civil marriage according to Swiss law: Superfluous historical remnant or building block in the fight against forced marriages?

Pahud de Mortanges, René ; Leitz, Barnaby

(IR-Papers ; 3)

In the 19th century, the prohibition of religious weddings prior to state marriages had the objective of enforcing the right to marriage and preventing discriminatory practices, particularly those of the Catholic Church. While this is no longer pertinent, mandatory civil marriage has a new raison d'être in today's age of migration. The state thereby requires and ensures that marriages in...

Familiale Solidarität und gesellschaftliche Reproduktion

Schultheis, Franz

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Forum 1.2

Die Familie gilt gemeinhin als eine geradezu archetypische Verkörperung von Solidargemeinschaft. Hierbei sollte jedoch nicht in Vergessenheit geraten, dass die Familie nicht nur ein «Hafen in einer herzlosen Welt» ist, sondern zugleich die Rolle einer zentralen Akteurin der gesellschaftlichen Reproduktion von ungleichen Lebenschancen und gesellschaftlichen Hierarchien spielt. Dieses...

Frühkindliche Bildung und Erziehung zur Solidarität: eine Black Box

Stamm, Margrit

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Forum 1.1

In die frühkindliche Bildung werden grosse Hoffnungen gesetzt, sie vermöge einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Startchancengleichheit aller Kinder zu leisten. Implizit geht man davon aus, dass dabei Partizipation eine bedeutsame Rolle spielt und daraus solidarisches Handeln erwächst. Obwohl die Corona-Krise die Metapher der praktizierten Solidarität geschaffen hat, gilt es abzuwarten, ob die...

Social life as collective struggle : closure theory and the problem of solidarity

Mackert, Jürgen

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Article 1.5

In recent years, all over the globe we have seen intensifying economic exploitation, political disenfranchisement, social marginalization and cultural repression in all kinds of political regimes, from liberal democratic to authoritarian and dictatorial. Although the strategies vary with regard to regime and context, in all of them we observe that while a growing number of social groups are...

Discontinuities within continuities : Solidarity, (Im-)Mobility and Migration between Refugee Crisis and COVID-19 Crisis

Odermatt, Eveline

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Article 1.4

Since the peak of the so-called refugee crisis in 2015, much has been written on the topic of solidarity towards migrants. However, the perspective of migrants on the issue of solidarity and their practices of solidarity has been addressed less. This article aims to outline solidarity in the context of migration in more detail. Firstly, I will outline how solidarity played out towards migrants...

Similarities between European and national solidarity : An empirical thought experiment applied to 13 European countries

Ignácz, Zsófia S.

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Article 1.3

This paper examines similarities between attitudes towards European redistribution and attitudes towards national redistribution. It maps out possible reasons for expected similarities between the two spatial levels in the degree redistribution is supported and also the underlying mechanisms that foster support rates. To examine the underlying mechanisms, the paper employs a structural...

The experience of solidarity in Poland under communist rule and thereafter

Solska, Magdalena

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Article 1.2

Although Solidarność was the largest mass movement in the history of after- war Europe, the experience of solidarity during that time in communist Poland has barely been analysed. Drawing on historical accounts of the events in the 1980s and press interviews with Solidarność members, this paper attempts to bridge this gap and identifies key aspects of the experienced solidarity. It...
