  1. 1. A Representative Interactive Linear Eddy Model

    Author : Tim Lackmann; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : To further improve the efficiency and emissions profiles ofinternal combustion engines, many new combustion conceptsare currently being investigated. Examples includehomogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI), stratifiedcharge compression ignition (SCCI), lean stratified premixedcombustion, and the use of high levels of exhaust gasrecirculation (EGR) in diesel engines.

    Abstract : Internal combustion engines (ICE) are frequently debated due to their environmental consequences. Although the switch to electromobility is currently happening for light and medium-duty vessels, the transition for ships and heavy-duty trucks is more complex. The primary problem in the shift is the incapability of matching the range of ICE. READ MORE

  4. 4. Representativ byråkrati. En studie om ledande kommunala minoritetsadministratörers företrädarskap

    Author : Nazem Tahvilzadeh; Göteborgs universitet; []

    Abstract : The theory of representative bureaucracy suggests that the presence of underprivileged social groups, such as women and ethnic minorities, within the public workforce will lead to a more responsive political process, reflecting a wider range of interests. This theory posits that the social background of the individual public administrator affects their values and policy-preferences. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fractures in the Fabric of Democracy? : Change and Continuity in Public Opinion in Contemporary Europe

    Author : Oskar Hultin Bäckersten; Sven Oskarsson; Gina Gustavsson; Jonathan Polk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Public Opinion; Representative Democracy; Political Polarization; Political Attitudes; Intra-Party Opinion; Statskunskap; Political Science;

    Abstract : Is representative democracy in Europe becoming undermined by developments in public opinion? This dissertation addresses this overarching question, by studying the development over time of (i) ideological polarization; (ii) the degree to which vote choices are structured by political attitudes; and (iii) the degree to which parties are internally congruent in political opinion across levels. Public opinion is understood as the metaphorical ‘fabric’ of representative democracy, where conjectures to the fact of a fracturing dynamic are plausible and recurrent in academic and public debate.
