    Towards a Theory of Claim Making: Bridging Access and Property Theory
    Kronenburg García, Angela ; Dijk, Han van - \ 2020
    Society & Natural Resources 33 (2020)2. - ISSN 0894-1920 - p. 167 - 183.
    access - Claim making - land - natural resources - property - theory

    This article proposes a framework for studying and understanding how people make claims to land and other natural resources. We argue that a focus on claim-making practices of actors (individuals, groups, institutions, companies, the state), and the processes of appropriation, accessing and contestation that come along with it, best responds to Sikor and Lund’s call to examine “the grey zone” between access and property. We identify and discuss three practices of claim making: “grounding claims” is the practice of inscribing or altering the landscape with visible markers connoting ownership; “talking claims” is when speech is used strategically to make, justify and contest claims; and “representing claims” is when claims are represented on material objects (maps, title deeds) that are detached from the resource. We contribute to debates on enclosure, large-scale land acquisitions and resource grabbing by providing a lens of claim making through which these processes can be conceptualized.

    Competence for life: a review of developments and perspective for the future : Farewell address upon retiring as Professor of Education and Competence Studies at Wageningen University & Research on 20 October 2016
    Mulder, Martin - \ 2016
    Wageningen : Wageningen University & Research - ISBN 9789462579675 - 36
    education - competences - theory - research - onderwijs - bevoegdheden - theorie - onderzoek
    The concept of competence is probably as old as humanity. Introduced in the academic literature in the 1950s, it underwent a remarkable development. Used in the 1960s, criticised in the 1970s, discarded in the 1980s, renewed in the 1990s, and transformed in the 2000s, the global competence movement in the 2010s is stronger than ever. Started as an approach to train specific skills and teach for known jobs, it developed as a strategy to align the worlds of work and education and to prepare professionals for the labour market and lifelong learning. Now it is time to think about competencies for the unknown future and about ways to learn these.
    Aesthetic creation theory and landscape architecture
    Etteger, Rudi Van; Thompson, I.H. ; Vicenzotti, Vera - \ 2016
    Jola : Journal of Landscape Architecture 11 (2016)1. - ISSN 1862-6033 - p. 80 - 91.
    Aesthetic Creation Theory - criticism - landscape architecture - philosophical aesthetics - theory

    In recent decades the landscape architectural discourse has tended to eschew ideas of aesthetics while focusing instead on notions of functional and sustainable design. We offer the view that Aesthetic Creation Theory, whose principal exponent is the philosopher Nick Zangwill, has the potential to redress this imbalance by interpreting landscape architecture as art. Zangwill's account of art differs, however, from many other definitions found in philosophical aesthetics: it holds that works of art have aesthetic functions that are essential to them, but also allows that they have other, non-aesthetic functions, for example practical or ecological ones. It thus removes the strict distinction between fine art and the useful arts. After introducing Zangwill's theory, we discuss some rival theories of art and then explore the virtues of Aesthetic Creation Theory for the theory, practice, and pedagogy of landscape architecture.

    Peasants and the art of farming : A Chayanovian manifesto
    Ploeg, J.D. van der - \ 2013
    Winnipeg : Fernwood (Agrarian Change and Peasant Studies Series 2) - ISBN 9781552665657 - 157
    landbouw bedrijven in het klein - bedrijfssystemen - duurzame landbouw - plattelandsgemeenschappen - landbouw bedrijven - landbouw - verandering - theorie - geschiedenis - wereld - voedselsoevereiniteit - peasant farming - farming systems - sustainable agriculture - rural communities - farming - agriculture - change - theory - history - world - food sovereignty
    Many impressive studies on the changing nature of the global food system have been published, and nearly all address changes at the macro level. The far less visible changes occurring at the micro level have received relatively little attention, especially in the realm of critical rural studies. This book is a reflection of the far reaching and complex transformations of food systems that have occurred as a result of liberalization and globalization. This book focuses on the structure and dynamics of peasant farms and the historically highly variable relations that govern the processes of labour and production within the peasant farms. Jan Douwe van der Ploeg argues that peasant agriculture can play an important, if not central, role in augmenting food production and creating sustainability. However, peasants today, as in the past, are materially neglected. By building on the pioneering work of Chayanov, this book seeks to address this neglect and to show how important peasants are in the ongoing struggles for food, food sustainability and food sovereignty.

    The predictive adaptive response: modeling the life history evolution of the butterfly, Bicyclus anynana, in seasonal environments
    Heuvel, J. van den; Saastamoinen, M. ; Brakefield, P.M. ; Kirkwood, T.B.L. ; Zwaan, B.J. - \ 2012

    A predictive adaptive response (PAR) is a type of developmental plasticity where the response to an environmental cue is not immediately advantageous but instead is later in life. The PAR is a way for organisms to maximize fitness in varying environments. Insects living in seasonal environments are valuable model systems for testing the existence and form of PAR. Previous manipulations of the larval and the adult environments of the butterfly Bicyclus anynana have shown that individuals that were food restricted during the larval stage coped better with forced flight during the adult stage compared to those with optimal conditions in the larval stage. Here, we describe a state-dependent energy allocation model, which we use to test whether such a response to food restriction could be adaptive in nature where this butterfly exhibits seasonal cycles. The results from the model confirm the responses obtained in our previous experimental work and show how such an outcome was facilitated by resource allocation patterns to the thorax during the pupal stage. We conclude that for B. anynana, early-stage cues can direct development toward a better adapted phenotype later in life and, therefore, that a PAR has evolved in this species.

    Real Tourism; Practice, Care, and Politics in Contemporary Travel Culture
    Minca, C. ; Oakes, T. - \ 2011

    toerisme - reizen - theorie - toekomst - vrije tijd - sociologie - tourism - travel - theory - future - leisure - sociology
    Over the past decade, tourism studies has broken out of its traditional institutional affiliation with business and management programs to take its legitimate place as an interdisciplinary social science field of cutting edge scholarship. The field has emerged as central to ongoing debates in social theory concerning such diverse topics as postcolonialism, mobility, and postmodernism, to name just a few. While there has been a diverse body of empirical research on this transformation the theoretical discussions in tourism studies remain largely attached to theories of modernity and Anglo-centric assumptions about tourism. There is a need for the field to come to terms theoretically with the contemporary and future realities of tourism as a truly global phenomenon. This book puts forward new postmodernist ideas and arguments about tourism today and in the future.
    The operator hierarchy : a chain of closures linking matter, life and artificial intelligence

    Dit proefschrift beschrijft een nieuw ordenend principe met als doel daarmee bruggen te kunnen bouwen tussen de verschillende wetenschapsvelden. Bij het realiseren van dit doel is de evolutietheorie van Darwin als startpunt genomen. Het ontstaan van organisatieniveaus wordt vaak weergegeven als een hiërarchische volgorde van systemen. De literatuur geeft hiervan talrijke voorbeelden. De gepresenteerde opeenvolgingen van systemen zijn op het eerste gezicht heel logisch, zoals atoom, molecuul, organel, cel, weefsel, orgaan, organisme, populatie, gemeenschap, ecosysteem, planeet, zonnestelsel, sterrenstelsel, heelal ( figuur 2). Een dergelijke benadering van de hiërarchie in de natuur heeft breed opgang gedaan in de exacte wetenschappen. Echter, bij nadere bestudering blijkt deze hiërarchie niet consequent. Het doel van dit proefschrift is om ordenende principes in de natuurwetenschappen te vinden en deze toe te passen bij het bouwen van bruggen tussen de disciplines. Een beter begrip van deze regels zal het namelijk mogelijk maken om voorspellingen over de volgende stadia in de evolutie aan te scherpen en op basis hiervan nauwkeuriger uitspraken te doen over toekomstige operatoren. Dit zal wetenschappers en filosofen nieuwe mogelijkheden bieden om op verkenning te gaan in een domein waarvan men tot voor kort dacht dat het ontoegankelijk was voor een natuurwetenschappelijke benadering: de toekomst van de evolutie.
    Vrijheid of macht? Een filosofische reflectie op democratische planvorming

    Geen planvormingsproces, of er worden mensen en partijen uit het gebied zelf gevraagd om mee te denken. De laatste jaren heeft de participatieve aanpak zoveel aan kracht gewonnen dat het een vanzelfsprekendheid lijkt. Maar waarom vinden we dit eigenlijk belangrijk? Leiden gebiedsprocessen tot meer democratische beslissingen en vrijheid? Met behulp van grote denkers als Kant en Nietzsche weegt Jelle Behagel voor- en nadelen van publieke participatie af

    Met behulp van Walzers notie van complexe gelijkheid kan aannemelijk gemaakt worden dat er bij de discussie over spreiding versus verweving daadwerkelijk sprake is van een dilemma waarbij telkens weer gezocht zal moeten worden naar balans tussen marktwerking en overheidsbemoeienis. . Dit artikel gaat over open of gesloten buurten en subculturen; over gated comminities. Wat dat laatste betreft, is dat terug te vinden in de door Soetert ontworpen kasteelbouw (Haverleij bij Den Bosch of Brandevoort bij Helmond. Over harde en zwakke grenzen

    This thesis focuses on smallholder Irrigation Management Reform (IMR) policy models implemented in Mashonaland West and Mashonaland Central provinces of Zimbabwe. In particular it is concerned with how the models were negotiated, recursively shaped, adopted, transformed and accepted into policy by an array of actors spanning across international funding agencies, government ministries, local agencies responsible for smallholder irrigation development, the irrigators and their surrounding communities. The thesis intends to add to the growing body of debate on IMRs by providing information on ‘the reform process,’ an aspect that has been underplayed so far. It also aims to contribute to the development of an irrigation management policy for the smallholder irrigation sector in Zimbabwe that has been lacking to date.
