This book, issued by the Paris United Research Department of Comparative Law and the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law on the one side and by the Government of the Russian Federation on the other side is the first French-language publication providing access to recent developments in the Russian administrative law. One is confronted with French law and other human rights developments in Europe, on topics selected by mutual agreement by the authors from the issues on the agenda of reforms in Russia. Administrative procedures and control are key legal issues. How they are set dependent on the level of protection of rights and freedoms, the efficiency of public administration, economic development and stability of the state in general. Transformations of the Russian administrative law are put into the context of European administrative rights. French readers will see how the Russian context influences how to address them; Russian edition has brought to the attention of the Russian reader the general principles of French administrative procedure, the system of implicit decisions, the role of individuals in the completion of certain public tasks.
This volume contains the proceedings of the 2013 International Conference on Logistics, Informatics and Services Sciences (LISS’2013), held in Reading, UK with satellite sessions in Beijing, China, hosted by School of Economics and Management & International Center for Informatics Research of Beijing Jiaotong University (BJTU); cooperated with the Informatics Research Centre, Henley Business School. University of Reading and China Center for Industrial Security Research: and sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), K. C. Wong Education Foundation (Hong Kong) and Springer Publisher.
The conference was held in cooperation with Journal of Applied Research and Technology (JART) (SCI) Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management (JIEM) (EI Compendex ), Journal of Computing and Information Technology (JCIT) (EI Compendex), Journal of Electronic Commerce in Organizations (JECO) (EI Compendex), Foundations of Computing and Decision Sciences (EI Compendex), Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) (SCI), Advances in Transportation Studies (EI Compendex) Cybernetics and Information Technologies (CIT) (EI Compendex) and Computing and Informatics (SCI).
This conference is a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange latest fundamental advances in state-of-art and practice of logistics, informatics, service operations and service science, with five simultaneous tracks, covering different aspects, including: “Service Management”, “Logistics Management”, “Information Management”, “Engineering Management” and “Industrial Security Management”. It also had six special sessions, Security research of Chinese financial industry, Security research of special industry, Interoperability of heterogeneous applications and semantic analysis, Low carbon and logistics services, Digital and international publishing & media, and Information management and evaluation. Papers published in each track describe state-of-art research works that are often oriented towards real world applications and highlight the benefits of related methods and techniques for the emerging field of service science, logistics and informatics development.
LISS 2013 received 379 paper submissions from 17 countries and regions. 157 papers were accepted and published after strict peer reviews. The total acceptance ratio is 41.42%. Additionally, a number of invited talks, presented by internationally recognized specialists in different areas, have positively contributed to reinforce the overall quality of the conference and to provide a deep understanding of related areas.
In this paper we study convergence among Russian regions. We find that while there was no convergence in 1990s, the situation changed dramatically in 2000s. While interregional GDP per capita gaps still persist, the differentials in incomes and wages decreased substantially. We show that fiscal redistribution did not play a major role in convergence. We therefore try to understand the phenomenon of recent convergence using panel data on the interregional reallocation of capital and labor. We find that capital market in Russian regions is integrated in a sense that local investment does not depend on local savings. We also show that economic growth and financial development has substantially decreased the barriers to labor mobility. We find that in 1990s many poor Russian regions were in a poverty trap: potential workers wanted to leave those regions but could not afford to finance the move. In 2000s (especially in late 2000s), these barriers were no longer binding. Overall economic development allowed even poorest Russian regions to grow out of the poverty traps. This resulted in convergence in Russian labor market; the interregional gaps in incomes, wages and unemployment rates are now below those in Europe. The results imply that economic growth and development of financial and real estate markets eventually result in interregional convergence.
Various classifications of functions and methods the managements presented in scientific literature are analysed. The content of the general functions of management depending on a mode of functioning of the mechanism of management is defined by economic stability of machine-building enterprise. The conclusion, taking into account integrated approach of category «economic stability», is drawn on need of application of all variety of methods of management for structure of its mechanism of management.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy. So it is necessary to create a new method of valuation based on the new main sources of company's success that is its intellectual capital.
The article is devoted to a particular form of freedom of assembly — the right to counter-demonstrate. The author underlines the value of this right as an element of democratic society, but also acknowledges the risk of violent actions among participants of opposing demonstrations. Due to this risk, the government may adopt adequate measures restricting the right to counter-demonstrate, certain types of which are analyzed in this paper.
