Discretionary implementation and street-level bureaucracy
How much discretion do bureaucrats have when deciding who gets refugee status? Where does the boundary between law and practice lie when it comes to asylum in the European Union? In this book, you will find answers to these questions in an exploration of the decision-making context in which policy implementors conduct their work and turn policies into practice. Drawing from the insights of street-level bureaucracy and role-conflict theory, a better understanding is given of how decisions are made by policy implementers in situations of incomplete information or ambiguous policy vision and guidance.

Sociology of Crisis Experience in Central and Eastern Europe
Volume Editors: and
The book casts a spotlight on Central and Eastern European societies, making their experiences visible and meaningful within the postcolonial discourse. The modernization theory overlooks important aspects of postsocialist transformation. Consequently, sociological knowledge has drifted apart from the social production of knowledge, and sociology has become alarmingly irrelevant to the people it studies. Therefore, the book departs from preconceived notions of “normal” and “modern” to foreground the importance of actual social experience. After all, Central and Eastern Europe is a valuable yet underestimated social laboratory. Thus, the contributors experiment with new theoretical and methodological approaches to bridge the gap between social research and real people.

The Debate on Imputation in the English Antinomian Controversy (1690–1700) in Its International and Interconfessional Context
According to the apostle Paul, Christ was made sin. What does this mean: can sin be transferred? Was Christ punished? At the end of the 17th century, in the so-called Third Antinomian Controversy English and Dutch Reformed theologians discussed the concept of imputation in its interrelationship with forgiveness, punishment, and justice. This study helps you to understand their complex and fascinating theological and philosophical reflections. Because the same themes had already extensively been discussed during the century before against Socinianism, the antinomian controversy is placed in an interconfessional and international context, highlighting the significance of Socinians and Hugo Grotius.
