  • Music is used as a political tool in Islamic organisations

    [3 Jul 2017] Anashid is a genre of music used by Lebanese Hezbollah and Palestinian Hamas to, among other things, stir emotions, send messages and create unity. Membership of these organisations is not a role that one can step into and out of, meaning that the same type of music is also prevalent in personal contexts and thus becomes a part of the individual¿s identity. These are the findings of a thesis from the University of Gothenburg.

  • Children who have lived on the streets in Tanzania can be successfully reintegrated

  • Individual property rights reduce poverty and drives forest conservation in China

    [15 Jun 2017] When individuals in China get well-defined and protected property rights of using forest, conservation increases. So does people´s income from the forest, in particular when they have transfer rights to their forest land. This is a more effective way to reduce poverty and increase forest conservation than when rights remain in the hands of the state, or are given to a community in general. These are Yuanyuan Yi´s findings in her dissertation in economics at the School of Business, Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg.

  • Doctors divided about tutoring future colleagues
