Administration and Management

Editor(s): Cosmin Goian, Georgeta Raţă

Book Description

This book, Applied Social Sciences: Administration and Management, is a compelling collection of quantitative and qualitative studies in the fields of administration, right, management, and international studies related to the social sphere. Through theoretical studies and empirical research, the authors attempt to explain complex legal, administrative, management and international relations concepts. The essays focus on several themes including local and global public administration, team management, human resources, social and medical services, management of intangibles, female managers, ethnic minorities in central Europe, corporative social responsibility, the digital era, the right to development, responsibility, and crime victims of child pornography, etc. The book is an educational and empirical support for a broad variety of professionals in the socio-administrative and legal fields. Scientific knowledge is structured in order to provide an actual image of the studied concepts. However, the book is not restrictive: it is also accessible to a broader audience interested in an interdisciplinary approach to administrative, legal and management studies.
