Policy Research in a Complex Context  [PDF]
Alessandro Colombo
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2010.211071
Abstract: Today’s world is characterized by uncertainty and complexity. While examining the importance of research in such a context, the paper attempts to outline a first definition of the role and potential of policy research. The policy process itself has become increasingly complex and non linear, as has its relationship with research. Consequently, policy researchers’ contributions to policymakers may not have a direct, punctual and immediate influence on single issues, but rather a more pervasive, interactive, deliberative effect. Focusing on the theoretical definition of the risk, uncertainty and complexity of the policy process today, the paper outlines some questions and puts forward possible answers which offer a starting point for further analysis. It explores a new role for policy research and underlines the opportunities offered by argumentative, deliberative and multidisciplinary approaches which can positively impact democracy.
Demands, Resources and the Three Dimensions of Flow at Work. A Study among Professional Nurses  [PDF]
Lara Colombo, Margherita Zito
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2014.44030

Within the healthcare context is very important to foster the dynamics leading to positive experiences at work, in order to promote work motivation and well-being. This study investigated the influence of some personal and job resources and of some job demands on the three dimensions (absorption, work enjoyment, intrinsic work motivation) of flow at work, on the basis of Job Demands-Resources Model. Flow at work is an inner experience arising during an activity in which people are immersed, feel motivated and enjoy it. Studies suggest that resources are the main antecedents of the flow experience. Respondents to the questionnaire were 197 nurses. Multiple regressions were performed to detect the resources and the demands that influence the three dimensions of flow at work. As expected, resources positively influenced the dimensions of flow at work, particularly work enjoyment. Job demands positively influenced absorption and negatively influenced the other two dimensions of flow at work. Human resources managers should promote flow at work supporting the availability of resources and monitoring the job demands.

Mercados campesinos y diferenciación social en la transición al capitalismo
Mundo agrario , 2004,
Abstract: the transformation processes that affected the european peasantry in the late middle ages have long been considered essential in order to study the transition from feudalism to capitalism. this work analyzes the way in which the process of social differentiation and the development of local markets in 14th and 15th c castile are related. in the first place, different historiographic theses are examined. they all share a logical-abstract approach to the problem, neglecting the specific manner in which peasant markets operate. next, an alternative hypothesis is put forward in contrast. based on the analysis of documents from the town of avila, this hypothesis reveals the existence of forms of unequal exchange, which enable capitalist accumulation at village level and create the conditions for the emergence of a modern class structure.
El área de abastecimiento de las ortocuarcitas del grupo Sierras Bayas y las posibles técnicas para su obtención entre los cazadores y recolectores pampeanos
Intersecciones en antropolog?-a , 2011,
Abstract: this paper presents the results of investigations carried out in the mid-south tandilia mountain range, between the towns of san manuel (lobería district) and barker (b. juárez district). the archaeological research was focused on understanding the ways in which pampean hunters-gatherers obtained raw material in the study area, especially in relation to the sierras bayas group ortho quarzites. based on a series of systematic surveys, including analyses at various scales, evidence shows that the area of raw material procurement is significantly larger than was previously considered. in addition, possible new procurement modalities, previously unknown in the region, were identified.
Visibilidad de las revistas argentinas de medicina en las bases de datos internacionales
Informaci?3n, cultura y sociedad , 2009,
Abstract: within the theoretical frame of the bibliographic dimension of disciplines (informative and bibliographic structures) and applying quantitative methods, the present research is aimed to analyze visibility and overlapping indicators of the national medical bibliographic production in course of publication in international multidiscipline or single-discipline databases. it is expected to prove that low visibility levels and high rates of overlapping could be the factors contributing to low dissemination and visibility of the medical argentinian researchers production in the international ?mainstream?.
Uma memória para a tecnologia
Sociologia, Problemas e Práticas , 2000,
Abstract: o tema da memória, quando associado ao das novas tecnologias, produz interessantes correla??es na medida em que a informática - cuja presen?a e articula??o com tecnologias mais tradicionais constitui a característica distintiva dos novos média - tem sido desde sempre um agente fundamental da evolu??o da arquivística enquanto fenómeno mnemotécnico. procuraremos aqui evidenciar três aspectos dessa problemática que nos parecem fundamentais: o da tecnologia informática enquanto instrumento mnemotécnico em si mesmo; o dos conteúdos mnemotécnicos da tecnologia arquivística informatizada; e, por último, o do esquecimento como elemento estrutural e estruturante de cada forma de arquivo.

Dal parco-spiaggia al paesaggio che in-segna: significati sovrapposti della natura intorno alla metropoli
Tomaso Colombo
Ricerche di S/Confine , 2013,
Abstract: The author, cultural manager of Parco Nord (Milano), points out the key elements of this periurban park that since the Seventies has been managing to turn out an outskirts in a new attractive point ofthe town.A park has not only an environmental meaning but also a cultural one: its identity may influence people’s behaviours, uses and expectations as well. Thus territorial and hystorical features becomeopportunities for cultural planning, and they are taken in account when devicing opportunities for fruition and animation, always aiming at reinforcing the parks’s own identity.Colombo articulates the three guiding principles that steer the park’s cultural planning, then he recalls several site-specific events, from Biodiversity festival, that takes place every year, to the theater performances in nature such as The third Step, a visionary walk through the park at night and at dawn,taken as a symbol of a certain way of doing culture strictly connected to a way of living in nature.
Sortir de la rue : une lutte pour la reconnaissance à l’heure de l’individualisme avancé
Annamaria Colombo
SociologieS , 2010,
Abstract: Cet article présente les résultats d’une recherche analysant le processus de sortie de la rue des jeunes à Montréal. Les résultats obtenus conduisent à considérer ce dernier comme une lutte pour la reconnaissance dans le contexte actuel d’individualisation croissante du lien social. Dans ce contexte, les tentatives des jeunes pour s’approprier une position sociale peuvent prendre des formes inhabituelles et bricolées telles que l’appropriation de la rue et la sortie de celle-ci. Aspirant à une certaine normalité, les jeunes rencontrés ont investi des contextes relationnels plus ou moins associés à la rue. Ils se sont approprié les manifestations de reconnaissance qu’ils y ont trouvées afin de construire leur sortie de la rue, comprise comme un processus de repositionnement identitaire. Or il ressort également que le sens attribué à ces manifestations de reconnaissance est lourdement influencé par les formes de reconnaissance parentales vécues durant l’enfance. This article presents the results of a research analyzing the processes that street youth use to exit street life in Montreal. The results of this research show that these processes are a form of struggle by the street youth to gain recognition in the current context of growing individualization. In this context, the attempts of youth for the appropriation of a social place can take unusual forms, such as street appropriations and street exits. Aspiring to a certain form of normality, the interviewed youth built relationships more or less associated to street life. They used the recognition manifestations they gained in order to advance the processes of their exit from street life, which should be understood as a process to reposition their identities. The results also show that the sense that the street youth attribute to these recognition manifestations is heavily influenced by the parental recognition forms experienced during childhood. Este artículo presenta los resultados de una investigación que analiza el proceso de “salida” de la calle de los jóvenes de Montréal. Los resultados obtenidos llevan a considerar la “salida” como una lucha de reconocimiento en el contexto actual de la individualización creciente del vínculo social. En este contexto, las tentativas de los jóvenes para ocupar una posición social pueden tomar formas inhabituales tales como: la apropiación de la calle y la “salida” de ella. Aspirando a cierta normalidad, los jóvenes entrevistados invirtieron en contextos de interacción social asociados o distantes de calle. Ellos se han apropiado las manifestaciones de reconocimient
