This thesis aims to broaden our knowledge of working memory functioning development between the preschool period and the school period. Previous studies have shown that goal neglect contributed to kindergarteners’ poor executive control. Hence, presenting goal cues during a task improves...

De la coutume au code : résistances à la codification du droit civil à Neuchâtel sous l'Ancien Régime

Wyssbrod, Adrien ; Christin, Olivier (Dir.) ; Dunand, Jean-Philippe (Codir.) ; Chaix, Gérald (Codir.) ; Tappy, Denis (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Civil law in the Principality of Neuchâtel remained customary throughout the “Ancien Régime”. Despite a seemingly strong desire to codify, successive princes of Neuchâtel were unable to get this custom written. Their dreams of codifications were totaly in accordance with the ideas of the Enlightenment and the sovereigns were supported by philosophers. Why, in a small principality like...

Llamas Martínez, Jacobo ; Sánchez Jiménez, Antonio (Dir.) ; Matas Caballero, Juan (Codir.) ; Navarro Colorado, Borja (Codir.) ; Udaondo Alegre, Juan (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

As a consequence, pure public sector economics cannot be fully applied in this context as forestry firms are in the private market of selling raw wood; it turns out to be an important part of their job and most of their revenues. At the same time, it is not possible to only consider the...

Essays on the globalization of firm ownership

Zhang, Xiqian ; Salva, Carolina (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017 ; 2671.

This dissertation is constituted of three distinct chapters. The first chapter seeks to resolve a recent debate on whether sovereign wealth funds(SWFs) have non-financial objectives and politically distort firm performance. I find that, once stake size is considered, previous belief that SWFs would affect firm performance should be reformulated. SWFs rarely seek an influential stake in listed...
