Eindelijk 'restitutie'

 

 

De totstandkoming van Nederlandse akkoorden over Joodse oorlogstegoeden (1997-2000)

 

 

Christiaan Ruppert

Na de Tweede Wereldoorlog proberen overlevende Joden hun geroofde eigendommen terug te krijgen. Hoewel het naoorlogse rechtsherstel in Nederland in strikt juridische zin begin jaren zestig afgesloten is, komen er eind jaren negentig alsnog openingen die leiden tot correcties en aanvullingen. In de nieuwe akkoorden is er sprake van spijtbetuigingen, restitutie en compensatie. In totaal ontvangt de Joodse gemeenschap 764 miljoen gulden van de Nederlandse regering en de financiële wereld.

Wereldwijd gelden de Nederlandse akkoorden als een groot voorbeeld om onrechtvaardigheden in naoorlogs rechtsherstel te erkennen en te herstellen. De auteur analyseert welke factoren de totstandkoming hebben bevorderd of belemmerd, en welke bepalend zijn geweest. Waarom verloopt het overleg van Joodse vertegenwoordigers met de verzekeraars en met minister Zalm harmonieus, terwijl het met de banken en beurs moeizaam gaat? En hoe wijkt Nederland af van die Europese landen waar eind jaren negentig ook restitutieprocessen plaatsvinden?

Introduction to the Theory of Econometrics

 

 

Jan R. Magnus

This little book contains a first course in econometric theory. It is based on lectures to second-year undergraduates who have learned some calculus, matrix algebra, and statistics (but no econometrics) in their first year. Two things are essential in such a course. First, a thorough knowledge of the standard linear regression model. And second, a thorough understanding of the principles of maximum likelihood. The book is also suitable as an introduction to econometrics for Masters and PhD students.

Ritual Slaughter

 

Animal Welfare and the Freedom of Religion

 

Jan Willem Sap, Carla M. Zoethout & Gerhard van der Schyff

According to traditional Jewish and Islamic law, animals must be slaughtered by a single cut to the throat. The practice of ritual slaughter has become controversial to the extent that it is interpreted as precluding animals from being stunned first. This raises a number of important and related questions. What are the limits of animal welfare? What are the limits of the right to freedom of religion? What is the best way to discuss this dilemma in a democratic society under the rule of law that also respects minorities?

> In Islamic societies, religion penetrates all aspects of social and professional life, including health issues. This book offers three contributions illustrating its impact on work. Firstly, it describes the influence of the well-known Islamic work ethic on workers' behavior in Muslim countries, and reviews the overall implications for organizational performance. Secondly, it highlights the Islamic view on the concept of business, in connection with the essential Islamic work values and components and the Ten Commandments. Thirdly, it contributes to the field of quality management models. It conducts a comprehensive literature review of Western quality approaches and identifies the shared values and principles in comparison with the Islamic work ethic.
