La proposition de la notion de « la loi sur les droits numériques » sera certainement une rénovation et une percée dans le domaine du droit. La Loi sur les droits numériques 1.0 est le premier ouvrage pour la Chine voire pour le monde ayant la loi sur les droits numériques comme titre et les droits numériques comme l’objet

de recherche. La publication de cet ouvrage a une grande portée historique.

Chinois résidant en Europe en Romanie

Selon la Loi sur les droits numériques 1.0, le confl it qui oppose la recomposition aux structures de droits et de pouvoirs établis, nous amène à repenser la société et à concevoir un nouvel ordre. Les droits numériques sont la source de la vitalité intrinsèque de l’ordre numérique, et leur soutien est la principale force capable de hâter sa reconstruction.

Anti-utopian Mood, Liminality, and Literature

From International Literary Experience to Georgian.

Irma Ratiani

The book deals with the problem of anti-utopian way of thinking in literature, its preconditions, and variations in the 20th century. Moreover, it is a first attempt to read one of the most prominent Georgian texts – Jakho’s Dispos-sessed by the Georgian writer Mikheil Javakhishvili – in the context of anti-uto-pian thinking. The book aims to present how relevant 20th century Georgian literature is to this literary trend. Research was conducted in the frame of comparative studies. The book offers a comprehensive analysis of Vladimir Nabokov’s Invitation to a Beheading and Bend Sinister, and Jakho’s Dispos-sessed by Mikheil Javakhishvili.

Direct Provision

Asylum, The Academy and Activism

Edited by Jacqui O'Riordan and Mike FitzGibbon

This book examines approaches and responses to working with the asylum-seeking, refugee and migrant communities in Ireland. Through their experiences, analyses and activist accounts, contributors name direct provision as a system that facilitates the marginalization and dehumanizing of people. In making visible some of the undocumented challenges to direct provision, the co-operation and engagement between local and migrant communities, and the very real and moving experiences of living in such conditions, this publication forms a part of the ongoing challenge to direct provision. It calls for a reconsideration of the infallibility of the reductionist-dominant narrative that reduces responsibility to care and protect human life, to narrow economic considerations, and calls on the State to recognize its duty of care in its fullest conceptualization. While analysing through the lens of care, the reductionist and repressive State policies and practices are revealed. Most emphasis is placed on the reactions and resilience of the asylum–seeking community, through their numerous acts of resistance, supported by a significant cohort of friends and activists within and outwith the direct provision system.

This book focuses on Doris Lessing’s social and political reappraisal of the family. It looks at how her fiction both critiques traditional patriarchal family structures and explores alternative and non-normative configurations of family. The continuation of traditional ideas about family suggests that Lessing’s fiction remains meaningful and relevant today.

Kinship Reimagined: Family in Doris Lessing’s Fiction is a thoroughly researched, original and interesting contribution to both the study of Doris Lessing’s work and the study of the family, as it is represented in twentieth-century fiction. Senturk’s argument – that Lessing’s work develops from a critique of the family towards a resignification of it – is clearly argued, well structured, and engaging to read.

Susan Watkins, Professor in Cultural Studies and Humanities, Leeds Beckett University, UK

Selcuk Senturk’s monograph is a valuable contribution to the study of one of the twentieth century’s most important authors. Senturk analyzes with great insight the ways that Doris Lessing first resisted, then reconsidered, and finally reimagined family roles and kinship structures, as well as gender norms, during her prolific career. In Senturk’s work, the family emerges as not just a theme in Lessing’s writings but a key critical concept for understanding their import. Drawing expertly on such current critical discourses as feminism and eco-criticism, Senturk makes clear the enduring relevance of Lessing’s novels, showing how they continue to speak to the urgent problems of our time.

Dr Cornelius Collins, Co-editor in Chief in Doris Lessing Studies, Fordham University, USA.

Selcuk Senturk provides informed, systematic interpretation of the Western family across the corpus of Lessing’s novels. This insightful, sustained analysis reaches original and revealing conclusions, especially concerning lesser studied works, such as Mara and Dann and The Sweetest Dream.

Datenrechtsgesetz 1.0

Die theoretische Basis

SSAP International

Edited by Yuming Lian

Since its emergence, big data has brought us new forms of energy, technology and means of organization which will generate greater values by crossover, integration, openness and sharing of data. Nevertheless, risks caused by open access and the flow of data also bring us enormous challenges to privacy, business secrets and social and national securities. This raises people’s awareness on data sharing, privacy protection and social justice, and becomes a significant governance problem in the world. In order to solve these problems, Data Rights Law 1.0 is innovative in that it proposes a new concept of the «data person». It defines «data rights» as the rights derived from the «data person» and «data rights system» as the order based on «data rights». «Data rights law» is the legal normative formed out of the «data rights system». In this way, the book constructs a legal framework of «data rights-data rights system-data rights law». If data is considered as basic rights, on which new order and laws are to be built, it will bring brand new and profound meaning to future human life.

Edited by Nils Holger Petersen, Dick De Boer, Bas Spierings and Martin Van der Velde

This book adopts a multidisciplinary and novel approach to the historical evolution of identities in Europe  – identities connected with regions as a multi-layered and processual key concept in dialogue and/or conflict with the emerging nation-state. In the book, historical disciplines meet with anthropology, human ge-ography and cultural studies to discuss how regional identities of various kinds were created, challenged and redefined; how they were experienced and expressed and to what extent they produced feelings of attachment.
Spatial, social, cultural and political manifestations of identities in Europe are historical phenomena. Their changes and forms help us understand the essential traits of European societies, in-cluding the development of differences and similarities, degrees of attachment and dynamics of physical and mental borders. Drawing on a wide range of sources – from historiography to in-terviews, hagiographical texts, images and songs – expressing evolving identities, this book presents an innovative approach to understanding identity formation in Europe.

Data Rights Law 2.0

The System Construction

SSAP International

Edited by Yuming Lian

Human rights, real rights, and data rights will be the three categories of fundamental rights of mankind in the future. Data rights, in essence, are the rights to share and the ultimate manifestation of data ownership. They aim at the effective use of data and holds special significance for our future life.


The digital civilization is the value justification and driving force of the creation of the data rights law, while the data rights law offers basis for the existence of the digital civilization, helping maintain its systems and improving its order.

Democracy and Law Times

The research of the data rights law is a grand groundbreaking project and a major social and academic issue that future generations will have to continue to work on.

China and Africa Daily

In this sense, the data rights law is the product of a leap of our civilization and its order, and it pushes for the leap of the human world from the industrial civilization to the digital civilization.


The proposal of the data rights law has laid a legal foundation for us to safeguard national data sovereignty, take form hold on our right to formulate data rights rules, have our voice heard in the international community in the field of data rights, and promote the rule of law in global cyberspace governance. It is of special importance to the building of a community with a shared future in cyberspace.

La Chine de la première moitié du 20ème siècle a connu de nombreux bouleversements dont la fin des dynasties, les mouvements pour la république, les Seigneurs de guerre, de multiples invasions … Elle a aussi vu son milieu culturel et académique s’épanouir. Pendant cette période, la sociologie chinoise contemporaine a pris forme, s’est développée, et a exercé une influence non négligeable dans le monde intellectuel. La variété des approches et la qualité des recherches en sociologie ont atteint un niveau remarquable. Les travaux réalisés durant cette période constituent un héritage précieux et une base solide et incontournable pour les recherches contemporaines en la matière. Après l’arrêt de toute recherche sociologique pendant presque 30 ans (les années 50–80), il est important et intéressant de faire connaître les chercheurs qui ont bâti la sociologie chinoise d’aujourd’hui, ainsi que leurs travaux, aux étudiants et chercheurs de nos jours.

Truths, Trust and Translation

A festschrift, love letter and thank you to Michèle Cooke

Edited by Michael En

Translation is a fact of life. It happens in as many ways as there are colours in the rainbow. And once we see it, we can never go back to not seeing it. Meaning (making), understanding (the ‘right’ and the ‘wrong’ things), relating (to the world and to each other) – it all starts with us.

Nobody has lived this more colourfully than Michèle Cooke, whose work the contributors to this book celebrate by showing what translating our truths is – and can be – all about.
