  • This paper aims at explicating the hegemonic pressure from the U.S. side and the constant resistance from the Chinese side during the U.S.-China IPR disputes in the cyberspace. The theory of hegemony and extended literature review reveal that during the U.S.-China IPR disputes in cyberspace, the dominant U.S. power has shaped the IPR world order so effectively for its own interests that China as a disadvantaged country has been included, albeit with reservations, in the broad consent of the U.S. hegemonic sphere of influence. This study has also demonstrated significant theoretical and practical implications.

  • Friendship is a frequently-used word but it is difficult to define it clearly. Friendship in its various configurations links people and communities together in some sort of reciprocally beneficial association that forms societies. Thus friendship is a concept that deserves attention. This paper examines some of the similarities and differences about understandings of friendship which both support and challenge traditional western perspectives. The article argues that an exploration of the experiences and interpretations of friendship outside the western philosophical tradition demonstrates a shared understanding about many aspects, but also some subtle differences which, while challenging some of the western concepts, can also be incorporated into developments of the idea of friendship.

  • This paper is based on a study of Palestinian intermarried families (Palestinian men married to American and European women) residing in Palestinian cities of the West Bank. Specifically, it addresses the interface of cultural adaptation and the socialization of children ("children socialization") in the midst of political conflict. Cultural adaptation strategies were typified by the extent to which each spouse embraces the partner's culture, while children socialization patterns were typified according to dominant cultural setting chosen by the family. The findings show that parental choices of cultural adaptation were reflected in the ways they chose to socialize their children. Conflicts over children socialization occurred only when the parents opted for opposing cultural adaptation...

  • Australia has an unusual history with regards to the legalisation of voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide. The first people to die through legalised physician aid in dying did so in the Northern Territory under the Rights of the Terminally Ill Act which was passed in 1995. However, after intervention by the federal government, no territories in Australia are allowed to pass legislation legalising voluntary euthanasia or assisted suicide. No states have since succeeded in passing any acts either, despite a high level of public support for these end of life options. This paper looks at the process by which other jurisdictions have legalised either voluntary euthanasia or assisted suicide, to help understand the current Australian situation.
