  2. The binary system was created long before Leibniz 

    Bruderer, Herbert (2017)
    Communications of the ACM
    In numerous, and even more recent, writings, the universal scholar Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz is once again referred to as the discoverer or inventor of the binary system. During his lifetime there was no use for such a system, but since the 1940s it has been an important basis for electronic digi-tal computers. Based on the work of Shirley and Ineichen, the European origin of the positional number system is being touched. There are reports ...

  3. Challenges in Libya Complicate EU Measures to Stem Migration 

    Watanabe, Lisa (2017)
    IPI Global Observatory
    In recent weeks, allegations have surfaced that Italy has been paying armed groups in Libya to cease smuggling migrants into the country. Some estimate that the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean into Italy has reduced by half compared to the same time period last year. At the heart of the issue is a governance vacuum that allows armed groups to control the flow of migrants in and out of Libya, presenting a unique challenge for ...

  5. Der Strafgerichtshof im Kreuzverhör 

    Barmet, Céline (2017)
    ​CSS Analysen zur Sicherheitspolitik
    Vor 15 Jahren nahm der erste ständige internationale Strafgerichtshof(ICC) seine Arbeit auf. Die Gründung dieses Tribunals war ein Erfolg und sendete ein starkes Signal gegen die Straflosigkeit von Menschenrechtsverletzungen. Doch dem ICC bläst heute von diversen Seiten ein rauer Wind entgegen. Für eine effiziente Strafverfolgung muss das Gericht in seinem Mandat konsequenter unterstützt werden.

  6. Mali: une paix fragile 

    Chandler, Allison; Zogg, Benno (2017)
    Politique de sécurité: analyses du CSS
    Malgré une importante présence militaire et civile internationale, le Mali continue à lutter contre l’insécurité et l’extrémisme islamiste. Ces problèmes s’inscrivent dans un contexte marqué par la pauvreté, les tensions ethniques et la faiblesse de l’appareil d’État. Par ses efforts globaux de soutien de la paix et de coopération au développement, la Suisse tente de renforcer une paix fragile.

  7. Mali's Fragile Peace 

    Chandler, Allison; Zogg, Benno (2017)
    CSS Analyses in Security Policy
    Despite a large international civilian and military presence, Mali continues to struggle with widespread insecurity and Islamist extremism. These issues are linked to chronic problems of poverty, ethnic tensions, and a weak state apparatus. With broad efforts in peacebuilding and development cooperation, Switzerland is trying to support the fragile peace.

  8. Cross-examining the Criminal Court 

    Barmet, Céline (2017)
    CSS Analyses in Security Policy
    Fifteen years ago, the first permanent International Criminal Court took up its work. The establishment of this tribunal was a success that sent a strong signal against impunity for human rights violations. Today, however, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is struggling against stiff resistance from various quarters. In the interests of efficient prosecution of crimes, the court’s mandate must be supported more forcefully.

  9. Contre-interroger la Cour pénale 

    Barmet, Céline (2017)
    Politique de sécurité: analyses du CSS
    Il y a quinze ans, la première cour pénale internationale permanente commençait ses travaux. La création de cette juridiction était un succès et envoyait un signal fort contre l’impunité des violations des droits de l’homme. Mais la Cour pénale internationale (CPI) doit actuellement faire face à des vents contraires. Pour que les poursuites pénales soient efficaces, cette juridiction doit être soutenue de manière plus cohérente.

Die Schweiz versucht den fragilen Frieden mit breitem Engagement zur Friedensförderung und Entwicklungszusammenarbeit zu stützen.

  11. Elastic deformation modulus for estimating convergence when tunnelling through squeezing ground 

    Vrakas, Apostolos; Dong, Weijie; Anagnostou, Georgios (2017)
    Géotechnique
    Squeezing in tunnelling is commonly assessed using the linearly elastic–perfectly plastic Mohr-Coulomb (MC) model. Weak rocks and fault materials, however, exhibit confining stress-dependent and strain-hardening behaviour prior to failure, i.e. the higher the confining stress and the lower the shear strain the stiffer the rock behaviour. As the MC model assumes a strain- and stress-independent Young’s modulus, the selection of an appropriate ...
