The Cases. The three cases consolidated in this appeal all involve claims for indemnity or contribution against the United States. In each instance, the companies suing the United States have themselves been sued by persons alleging injury due to exposure to asbestos. Because the facts of the cases are in some respects dissimilar, each will be discussed separately.
The Cases. In my study, I investigated the leadership practices of two principals in two high schools as they advocated and built a culture focused on college and career readiness for students from historically underserved populations, and to identify and describe the characteristics that they shared (Stake, 2005, 2006). In this chapter, I provide a detailed, holistic multi-site case study report with data collected between October 2014 and May 2015 at the schools located in the metropolitan area of a large Midwestern city. Through my data collection process I sought to understand how principals “live and work” (Creswell, 2007, p. 20) at each of their schools and then develop meaning from the experience. This process of interpretation, or constructivism, drew upon my perceptions as a former high school teacher, district administrator, immigrant student whose first language was not English, and the first student in my family to attend college, to make sense of how the principals understood and made meaning out of the world around them from multiple perspectives.Throughout my study, I argued that building college and career readiness for students from underserved populations would be grounded in education that was socially just, democratic, empathic, and optimistic (Kincheloe & Steinberg, 1995) and was led by a school leader whose inclusive practices blur the lines around race, ethnicity, class, and culture (Dantley & Tillman, 2006). Through my data analysis, four themes emerged about the leadership practices of the principals at both case sites: develop career pathways, create and engage corporate and education advisory boards in the school’s curriculum and career pathway development, provide students with opportunities to further learning and career interests inside and outside the classroom, and
The Cases propositions) for Identity Federation at the financial institution These days regulatory and security requirements signify not just authentication, but also fine-grained authorization and accounting. Federated identity management technologies improve security by controlling access on an operation-by- operation basis and providing a detailed audit trail while enabling access for partners and customers. Below, we present cases that we determined based on interviews and review of other documents provided by the financial institution. Members of the IAM team and a senior manager (Information Security) were interviewed to understand motivations and expectations of the project. The documents shared with us included project plan, project charter, license agreements, product documentation, technical and information architectures and business cases, amongst others. Interviews were conducted at the premises of the financial institution. In total 6 people were interviewed. The information obtained during interviews serve as basis for cases (propositions) presented below and also basis of analysis in a later section of this paper.
The Cases. Part I sets out the historical account of the cases. It discusses the relevant contextual factors, policy drivers, challenges and resulting youth justice changes. Chapter 3 identifies common historical strands that created a backdrop for youth justice changes in both New Zealand and South Africa. The focus of this Chapter is on how colonial powers in both countries erodedindigenous family structures and local customs, creating racial tensions which increasingly angered indigenous populations over time. How these tensions led to resistance from indigenous people in both countries is discussed, highlighting actions taken to end state control and abuse of their children in government institutions. In order to demonstrate the impact of the histories of social injustice on children and young people in both countries, Chapter 4 presents a selection of theories which emphasise the importance of social relationships in guiding pro-social development. These theories illuminate how negative social experiences, such as those experienced by indigenous children in New Zealand and South Africa, can often result in anti-social or criminal behaviour by children and young people. Such behaviour can further alienate them from society and draw them into the criminal justice system – as became evident in the over-representation of indigenous children and young people in state institutions in both countries prior to the changes.Chapter 5 gives an in-depth account of how New Zealand’s Children Young Persons and their Families Act of 1989 (CYPF Act) and South Africa’s Child Justice Act of 2008 (CJA) 6 were engineered to address these problems. It reveals the similarities in the development of each country’s youth justice systems, and shows how a combination of community activism, the commitment of critical policy makers and advocates, international influences and government support created youth justice systems aimed at improving outcomes for children in conflict with the law, particularly indigenous children. Chapter 5 explains how this was achieved by limiting children and young people’s exposure to the criminal justice system through keeping them in the care of families and communities wherever possible and supporting them to make amends for their offending and learn from their behaviour. Chapter 6 describes the mechanisms each country put in place to implement their new youth justice legislation and reveals some of the common challenges they faced in turning visionary policy...

The Cases. Comparative studies in the 1990s found that incumbent telecommunications providers in the USA and Germany adopted contrasting approaches to work reorganization. While US firms pursued market-mediated strategies, downsizing employment and cutting labour costs (Keefe and Batt 1997), German firms adopted labour-mediated strategies that involved more incremental adjustment to new market pressures (Darbishire 1997). These different outcomes were attributed to more extensive market liberalization in the USA, Deutsche Telekom’s stronger focus on diversification and service quality, and Germany’s more encompassing and co- ordinated bargaining structures (Katz and Darbishire 2000).Recent developments have brought about growing convergence in all of these areas. First, market liberalization, changes in ownership and technological advances mean that lead firms in both countries face intensified competition in their core markets and similar pressures from shareholders to maximize growth. In the USA, the 1997 Telecommunications Act ended the Regional Bells’ monopolies in the local fixed line market, while legislation that came into effect in 1998 introduced full competition in the German market. Privatization of Deutsche Telekom in Germany resulted in a similar ownership structure to that of incumbent US firms (although a minority of its shares remained under state control). In addition, mergers and acquisitions have increased foreign ownership in Germany, accompanied by the growing threat of hostile takeovers.Second, collective bargaining institutions have become increasingly fragmented in both countries. In the USA, the Communication Workers of America (CWA) moved from national to pattern bargaining in the 1980s (Katz et al. 2003). However, pattern bargaining broke down in the 1990s, and today the union negotiates hundreds of often poorly co-ordinated companyor establishment-level agreements with different firms and their subsidiaries. The German service union, ver.di, has been unable to negotiate a sectoral agreement for the telecommunications industry, or even for the subsidiaries of its core firms, contributing to growing variation in pay and working conditions at the company level (see, e.g., Holst 2008; Sako and Jackson 2006). In both countries, incumbent firms are under growing pressure to cut labour costs as non-union competition increases.For the present study, four case studies in the telecommunications industry were chosen to compare how US and German firms...
