Human Trafficking Challenges and Opportunities for the 21st Century comprehensively outlines the international and regional legal regimes as they currently stand in relation to certain forms of human trafficking. It contends that human trafficking occurs across the globe, requiring international, regional and local responses that incorporate different actors, both state and non-state. The ten contributions in the book deal with some of the most common forms of human trafficking, including forced labour, sexual exploitation and child trafficking, presenting challenges and opportunities for change that are currently being debated, especially in the European Union. The edited collection puts forward proposals to EU draft legislation and strategy in relation to human trafficking as well as making suggestions for change at domestic level.
´´She’d seen it before. The new guy pushes the incumbent hard for a few months, creates problems, and then brings in someone from his old company to replace the failure. Was he there to test her and teach her, or to toss her out at the first sign of trouble?” (The Offsite) Drawing on the leadership theories from the bestselling classic, The Leadership Challenge, Robert Thompson effortlessly incorporates Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner’s time-tested concepts into a winning fable of leadership and growth.

Told through the perspective of participants from both camps, they come to rely on The Five Practices that form the heart of The Leadership Challenge: Model the Way Inspire a Shared Vision Challenge the Process Enable Others to Act Encourage the Heart Exploring the dynamics of a company offsite with humor and insight, Thompson addresses the fears and concerns many participants have, especially around 360-degree feedback, the key component of The Leadership Challenge model and workshops. An invaluable audio book for anyone planning to attend (or produce) a leadership training retreat, The Offsite also provides a succinct introduction to The Leadership Challenge for professionals, at all levels, who want to hone their leadership skills. 1.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2019 in the subject Energy Sciences, Edinburgh Napier University, language: English, abstract: The present report involves the studies the integration of two renewables energies for the energy generation. Specifically, the Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology and the fuel produced from the biomass gasification process. Furthermore, it considers the energy analysis of the hybrid system and its challenges. At the same time, it incorporates the UK regulations associated with it is functioning in the domestic area. Moreover, it includes market projections and applications. The benefit of using the biomass as fuel is that the feedstock is a renewable source. As a result, it allows declining wastes and greenhouse gas emissions. The comparable way, the positive attributes of the SOFC technology make the integration of biomass-SOFC a clean alternative of energy production due to the cogeneration capacity of the hybrid system. Nevertheless, the challenges of this system are thermal expansion and corrosion phenomenon in the SOFC components, and impurities elements resulting in the gasification process of biomass, that under control situation is possible to apply this technology with a significant performance.
