Gujarati Communities Across the Globe

  • Sharmina Mawani
  • Anjoom A. Mukadam
Gujarati Communities across the Globe is the first study to offer insight into the everyday lives and evolving identities negotiated by Gujaratis in a global context: in India, the United Kingdom, North America, Australia, New Zealand, East Africa and South Asia.

Employment and Unemployment in Europe

  • Jean-Pierre Jallade
This book is a contribution to the European Cultural Foundation’s (ECF) policy of promoting scientific studies and exchanges in areas of common interest to all European countries. It is because questions related to employment, unemployment, and the role of work in society undoubtedly belong to these areas that the ECF, together with the Queen Juliana Foundation, has now established, in Maastricht, the European Centre for Work and Society, whose programme will focus on such topics and whose development received its initial stimulus from the proceedings of the Hague Conference set forth in this book.
