Edited by: R. Missaoui, S. Kuznetsov, S. Obiedkov. Iss. 1534: SNAFCA 2015 Social Network Analysis using Formal Concept Analysis. Malaga: CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2015.

Social network analysis (SNA) is a multidisciplinary research area that has attracted many researchers from different disciplines such as Physics, Mathematics, Sociology, Biology and Computer Science, and has been studied according to different approaches and techniques. A social network is a dynamic structure (generally represented as a graph) of a set of entities/actors (nodes) together with links (edges) between them. The explosive growth of online social media has provided users with the opportunity to create and share digital content on a range hardly imaginable a few years ago. Indeed, massive participation has transformed online social networks into cores of social activity and a critical information vehicle. This is reflected by the number of news, opinions, and reviews that are constantly posted and discussed on these networks. The size and diversity of user generated content create an opportunity for identifying central and influential players, behavioral trends and user communities.

This book offers a comparative analysis of value and identity changes in several post-Communist countries. In light of the tremendous economic, social and political changes in former communist states, the authors compare the values, attitudes and identities of different generations and cultural groups. Based on extensive empirical data, using quantitative and qualitative methods to study complex social identities, this book examines how intergenerational value and identity changes are linked to socio-economic and political development. Topics include the rise of nationalist sentiments, identity formation of ethnic and religious groups and minorities, youth identity formation and intergenerational value conflicts

What many anthropologists regard as the major step in political development occurred when, for the first time in history, previously autonomous villages gave up their individual sovereignties and were brought together into a multi-village political unit--the chiefdom. Though long neglected as a major stage in history, recent years have seen the chiefdom come in for increased attention. As its importance has been more fully recognized, it has become the object of serious scholarly analysis and interpretation. In this volume specialists in political evolution draw on data from ethnography, archaeology, and history and apply fresh insights to enhance the study of the chiefdom. The papers present penetrating analyses of many aspects of the chiefdom, from how this form of political organization first arose to the role it played in giving rise to the next major stage in the development of human society - the state.

With many predicting the end of US hegemony, Russia and China's growing cooperation in a number of key strategic areas looks set to have a major impact on global power dynamics. But what lies behind this Sino-Russian rapprochement? Is it simply the result of deteriorated Russo-US and Sino-US relations or does it date back to a more fundamental alignment of interests after the Cold War? This book by leading expert on Sino-Russian relations Alexander Lukin attempts to answerthese questions by offering a deeply-informed and nuanced assessment of Russia andChina's ever-closer ties. Tracing the evolution of this partnership from the 1990s to the present day, he shows how economic and geopolitical interests drove the two counties together in spite of political and cultural differences. Key areas of cooperation and possible conflict are explored from bilateral trade and investment to immigration andsecurity. Ultimately, Lukin argues that China and Russia's informal alliance is part of agrowing system of cooperation in the non-Western world, which has also seen theemergence of a new political community: Greater Eurasia. Combining accessibility withexpert sensitivity to the complexities of the subject, Lukin's vision of the new China-Russia rapprochement will be essential reading for anyone interested in understanding this evolving partnership and the way in which it is altering the contemporary geopolitical landscape.

Description of the Voluntary Nonprofit Sector in contemporary China. Counting unregistered grassroots associations, China now has the second largest Voluntary Nonprofit Sector (VNPS) in the world, after the USA. The US has a much higher density of nonprofits, especially grassroots associations, but China's population is over four times as large. Much of the article describes the difficulties that nonprofits in China have in registering with the central government, and alternative pathways they use to gain some recognition when government registration is delayed or refused, which is common. Without such registration, All Chinese nonprofits are technically illegal, and cannot own or rent an office or building, have a bank account, hire staff, etc. Tax exemption even for properly registered nonprofits is rare. Nearly all national associations are government controlled, but unregistered local, all-volunteer (grassroots) associations are relatively free. The latter constitute an estimated 95% of the VNPS in China.

The general aim of this thesis is to explore the gendered and classed nature of social work and social welfare in Russia to show how social policy can be a part of and reinforce marginalisation. The overall research question is in what ways class and gender are constructed in Russian social work practice and welfare rhetoric through Soviet legacies and contemporary challenges? In addition, which actors contribute to the constitution of social work values and how this value system affects the agency of the clients? This study focuses on contradictory ideologies that are shaped in discursive formations of social policy, social work training and practice. It is a qualitative study, containing fi ve papers looking at this issue from three different perspectives: policy and institutions, culture and discourse, actors and identity. The data collection was arranged as a purposive–iterative process. The empirical material consists of qualitative interviews with social work practitioners, administrators and clients, participant observations in social services and analysis of documents of various kinds.
