  1. 1. POLICY FAILURES OF SINGAPORE’S INCLUSIVE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMMES The inaccessibility of persons with disabilities to the labour market in Singapore

    Magister-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Liändrie Steffens; [2021-02-12]
    Nyckelord :Persons with Disabilities; UNCRPD; Singapore; policy failure; inclusive employment policies;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis is to understand why the employment rate of persons with disabilities in Singapore is significantly low despite its extensive and generous inclusive employment programmes and the ratification and implementation of the UNCRPD; are these policy failures, what are the possible gaps in the inclusive employment policies and how does it comply with the UNCRPD Article 27 of Work and Employment. These questions are answered through the theoretical lens of policy failure and inclusive employment, and applying the policy failure measures as set forth by McConnell’s “criteria of policy success and failure” as well as an in-depth analysis of the inclusive employment policies’ eligibility criteria.

  2. 2. Synchrotrons as a Source for Soft X-Ray Lithography

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Thomas Joseph Grandsaert Jr; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : To move to lower modes in extreme ultra-violet lithography (EUVL) technology (and keep up with Moore’s law), new sources of soft X-ray radiation must be developed. It is clear from previous studies that Free Electron Lasers (FELs) can easily meet the in-band power requirements at these lower wavelength modes, however detailed studies for insertion devices (undulators) as a soft X-ray lithography (SXL) source are due for a re-evaluation.

  3. 3. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Författare :Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Sammanfattning : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.

  4. 4. The use of higher steel grades in building elements

    Master-uppsats, Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Författare :Hampus Berggren; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Area reduction; Change of steel grade; Emission reduction; High strength steel; Higher steel grade; Steel;

    Sammanfattning : Structural steel is one of the main building materials used commercial. Its strength is its formality and high yield strength which allows less material overall. Steel is often divided into steel grades such as S275, S355, S420 and so forth. LÄS MER

  5. 5. “Our libraries are dying”: Biopiracy and the social value of traditional medicinal knowledge in Ecuadorian Amazonia

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Humanekologi

    Författare :Ellen Forssell; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Biopiracy; Traditional Knowledge; Bioprospecting; Social Justice; Environmental Justice; Amazonia; Human Ecology; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : In a global social divide between modern and traditional, medicine has fallen into two sides. Still, much of modern medicine exists because of traditional medicinal knowledge, yet the latter is rarely given any recognition. LÄS MER
