system further compounds insufficient resource allocation by adding inefficiency to the mix. The enforcement of nature protection laws is left to the 16 federal states ( Glaser 2011 : 7f). Some of these states further delegate responsibilities in varying degrees to the municipal level, imposing undue burden on Germany’s municipal officials or, what I call, Germany’s street-level bureaucrats (SLBs). German federalism thereby turns the country into a confusing patchwork of enforcement. Yet, by detailing the perseverance of local and state officials as custodians of

about [it].” The loss of independence was thus seen in terms of increased vulnerability to potential ill treatment as a result of needing to be cared for. Perseverance Many used the term ‘perseverance’ to describe the daily efforts they made to maintain their health and to avoid the need for care services and becoming a burden on others. Perseverance referred to an attitude of mind that required a degree of acceptance of change coupled with the determination to make the most of their abilities and to ‘keep going’. As Frederick (aged 81) described it: “I try to

complex along the southern reach of the city’s River Walk. Eight protesters were arrested for trespassing, in an effort to halt bulldozers from further razing the building, including the director of the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, Graciela Sánchez, and prominent Chicana historian and activist Antonia Casteñeda. As protesters and many others insisted, it was not just bricks and mortar being demolished that day, but an intangible cultural, political, and social history embodied within that building—one that spoke to the struggles and perseverance of the

favours the rich), along with factors associated with family background (for example, inherited wealth from relatives) and luck or risk-taking (for example, winning the lottery). Further, Bullock et al (2003) proposed an alternative factor model that differentiated among wealth sources related to perseverance/ambition (for example, being very intelligent), corruption/pull (for example, networking and having the right ‘contacts’), fatalism/luck (for example, being in the right place at the right time), and privilege (for example, inherited wealth from relatives). These

culture and thereby ensures perseverance among ethnic groups that fight for visibility in Japanese society. 203 INTRODUCTION TO PART III The development of advanced media technologies in Northeast Asia covered by the four chapters reveals how ongoing entangling international conflicts among North Korea, Japan, and South Korea continue in the digital domain. Political competition and negotiation in the techno-cultural spheres of pachinko, robotics, and esports are expressed in ways that enunciate a unique Northeast Asian regionalism. The perseverance of Zainichi

what the ‘innocence of becoming’ might mean practically, especially once those normative frameworks enshrining rights and duties are done away with in a supposedly life-affirming move that strips them of all anchoring to an imperfect yet existing normative framework. More generally and importantly, it takes power, perseverance and momentum to redress grievances and achieve a more just order. These transformative processes are often fuelled by collective moral sentiments that intersect, contaminate and fold into one another, in a constant exchange of affective and

If he had not exerted a determined yet friendly pressure on me to respond to the three contributions collected here, the only outcome would likely have been an equally friendly but non-committal agreement on my part. But as things are, I am prompted to critically revisit my essay ‘Recognition between States’, which is clearly the focus of the

participants with children drew on frames of diversity in their narratives of feeding children and encouraging diverse, healthy eating habits was clearly understood as worthy of parental perseverance. Being ‘open’ in the late modern world is valued ( Bennett et al 2009 ), and this was certainly reproduced in the narratives of the parents of this sample. Cultural competence around food tastes is an important disposition to lay down in childhood teaching and learning. But as I argue in the preceding chapters, openness is selective and therefore it is in fact around taste

law enforcement actors have disruptive power in relation to the respective other. Second, I argue that it is the endurance of migrants that poses a great challenge to the ‘fantasies’ ( Coutin, 2015 ) of migration ‘management’. I then contend that states react to such everyday resistance by trying to transform migrants’ perseverance into exhaustion that will eventually persuade ‘undesirable’ migrants to return – or will turn them into docile labour. The final section concludes that it is within such ‘politics of exhaustion’ ( Ansems de Vries and Guild, 2019 ) that

result enhances the negative feeling among European observers that a more fundamental flaw than the usual EU symptoms of low productivity and long protracted negotiations may be in motion here. To prophets of doom underlining the repetitive nature of the recent crises and questioning the sustainability of the project European, old hands are quick to resurrect the empty chair row initiated by de Gaulle or the hardly less conflicting issue of the UK financial contribution (‘I want my money back’) fought with perseverance by Margaret Thatcher for nearly five years.
