280 pag.

ISBN 978 90 3610 481 4
Euro 34,50

This study tries to investigate from the Rwandan perspective, whether there are any circumstances that would lead to personal or joint liability of a director when performing his/her duties as a company director. It also investigates when and when not Rwandan Corporate directors would benefit from the insulation of the corporate veil. The study also tries to look at what the legal (express and implied) duties of company directors are and what the legal consequences would be in case of breach or ultra vires these duties.

The findings of this study indicate however that, the knowledge and awareness of directors’ duties and obligations have always been presumed based on what exists in law, but that it does not necessarily and actually tally with what is known and practiced.
For company directors, the findings of this study offers a basis upon which they can best evaluate their role in the running of their respective company’s business and social life. It as well puts together all the express and implied duties and the possible liabilities thereof under Rwandan law, in case of breach or ultra vires these duties. The provisions from different scattered Rwandan laws relevant to directors’ duties as well as inspirations from other developed systems have informed this study’s findings, aiming at ensuring for a better performance of Rwandan Corporate sector.

Quinet Obed Niykiza ~ Learner Centred Education In Universities ~ A Contribution To Quality Teaching In Sub-Saharan Africa

134 pag.
16,5 x 24 cm
ISBN 978 90 5170 985 8
Euro 22,50

Effective university teaching and learning is an intellectually demanding task (Brown & Atkins 1988; Freire 2006; Escobar, Fernandez & Guevara-Niebla 1994 Susan & Wijeyesinghe 2011). The lecturer is not only expected to be versed with the course, but also to develop teaching strategies based on the contexts of education (Brown & Atkins 1988: 1-2). Knowledge, to believe the words of McLaren, has no intrinsic value per se but depends on the context in which it is produced as well as its purpose (Escobar, M., Fernandez & Guevara-Niebla, 1994). This leads me to quote Meirieu’s book (2010), titled “Apprendre … oui, mais comment?” “To learn … yes, but how?”

One of the major difficulties in higher education (HE) occurs when students leave the university with a very low growth of skills. The motivation for this research is the lack of quality education characterized not only by the insufficiency of its content, but also by a teaching method that is mostly magisterial.

Students are neither expected to actively participate in class nor to work independently. The development of critical thinking, intrinsic motivation and self-responsibility are hardly encouraged and sometimes are destroyed. The improvement of education is of a major and important concern. Thus, this study is a contribution to the ongoing debate on quality university education and a study on the awareness and perception of LCE in the teaching-learning process in Higher Learning Institutions.

Henk A. Becker – Generations of Lucky Devils and Unlucky Dogs

16,5 x 24 cm
258 pag.
ISBN 978 90 361 0 277 3
2012

Silver-grey manpower is a gold mine to society. One by one, the baby boom cohorts will reach the age of 65 starting from 2010. They are large cohorts, relatively well educated and healthy with considerable pension and health care rights. In short, they are lucky devils. As a result of ageing, cohorts that were born in 1985 onwards and that enter the labour market as from approximately 2010 will be required to pay many additional taxes during the course of their entire working life spanning more than forty years. They are, in short, unlucky dogs. Redistribution of joys and burdens could trigger conflicts between generations. A better solution is to identify and deploy society’s hidden resources.

Michael Meeuwis ~ Handwoordenboek Lingála – Nederlands ~ Nederlands – Lingála

ISBN 978 90 5170 606 2
154 pagina’s
Euro 24,50

Het Lingála wordt gesproken door ongeveer 25 miljoen sprekers in de westelijke en noordelijke delen van de Democratische Republiek Congo, in omringende landen alsook in de Congolese diaspora in de Westerse wereld. Dit handwoordenboek dekt het Lingála zoals het in Kinshasa gesproken wordt, dat de meest invloedrijke variëteit is.

De hoofdstad van de DR Congo heeft immers een grote politieke, taalkundige en culturele impact op de andere gebieden, waardoor het deze variëteit is waarmee men in het hele taalgebied terechtkan. Het handwoordenboek wil vooral van praktisch nut zijn, eerder dan dat het bestemd is voor de wetenschappelijke analyse van een van de twee talen. Het richt zich tot wie een van de twee talen wil leren verstaan en spreken om ze in de praktijk te kunnen hanteren. In de eerste plaats gaat het om Nederlandstaligen die Lingála willen leren, maar dankzij de tweezijdigheid van dit handwoordenboek is het ook onmisbaar voor sprekers van het Lingála die hun kennis van het Nederlands op peil willen brengen.

Michael Meeuwis is hoogleraar aan de Universiteit Gent, waar hij sinds 2002 onder meer Lingála doceert.
