  • El Perfil del Votante del Cambio en España: de las Elecciones
           Europeas a las Generales del 20D

    • Authors: Irene Valero-Oteo
      Pages: 107 - 136
      Abstract: La crisis financiera mundial que se hizo visible en 2008 ha tenido consecuencias devastadoras para el bienestar social de las economías desarrolladas, entre ellas España. Esta situación sumada a otra serie de crisis, entre ellas institucional, que llevaban latentes en la sociedad española desde hace décadas, ha puesto en tela de juicio la capacidad de la política tradicional para dar solución a los problemas de la población. En este contexto, España ha visto transformado su escenario político con la irrupción en él de dos nuevas formaciones políticas, quienes han entrado con fuerza en el territorio político y cuyo objetivo es regenerar la política del país. En este trabajo lo que se intenta es analizar cuál ha sido el perfil de votante que ha apostado por las nuevas formaciones en comparación con los partidos tradicionales, con objeto de observar las diferencias y similitudes que existen entre los votantes de nuevos y viejos partidos políticos.

  • Funcionalidades TIC Dirigidas a Personas Mayores, ¿Cómo son Valoradas en
           el Medio Rural'

    • Authors: María Ángeles Rubio Pastor, Inmaculada Plaza García, Víctor Orive Serrano
      Pages: 137 - 177
      Abstract: La despoblación del medio rural del interior de España representa un serio problema a la hora de ofrecer atención personalizada a las personas mayores, que ahora representan un elevado porcentaje de su población. Se considera que el avance en la investigación y desarrollo de nuevas funciones de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC) puede ayudar en la labor que tradicionalmente han realizado familiares o vecinos. Sin embargo, es necesario conocer cómo estas funcionalidades son valoradas por las personas mayores y para ello se les ha convocado a través de diversos talleres, donde se les han mostrado mediante dinámicas de grupo y se les ha pedido que las evaluaran. Los resultados han sido muy positivos, pues tras su conocimiento y prueba los mayores se han manifestado muy receptivos a su uso, apreciando cómo podían contribuir a mejorar su calidad de vida.

  • The Growth of E-Marketing in Business-to-Business Industry and its effect
           on the Performance of Businesses in Pakistan: Marketing Success

    • Authors: Adnan Ahmed Sheikh, Arfan Shahzad, Awanis Ku Ishaq
      Pages: 178 - 214
      Abstract: E-marketing has emerged as one of the significant drivers in sustaining the firms competitive advantage. So far, there is a lack of systematic empirical evidence regarding the marketing activities which are drastically affected by the use of e-marketing in small and large firms of Pakistan and their consequent performance outcomes. However, the objective of this study is to examine the technological, organizational and environmental factors on the performance of small and large firms in Pakistan with mediating role of E-Marketing uses and its generlizibality on countries with similar economic situation. Cross sectional data were collected from 257 manufacturing companies in Pakistan; general manager marketing were selected as the data collection sources. Additionally, SmartPLS 3.0, two step path-modeling has been used to examine the direct as well as indirect hypothesis of the current study. However, the results generated from SmartPLS (SEM) path-modeling found that, with regard to direct relationships, three variables (technology orientation, top management support, use of e-marketing) out of five including mediation variable have found significant positively associated with firm performance, however, only one (competitive pressure) has found negatively significant with firm performance. Finally, in terms of use of e-marketing as mediating variable between the relationships of technological, organizational, environmental factors and firm performance, three out of four (independent variables) indicate partial mediation including technological factors (technology orientation), organizational factors (top management support) and environmental factors (competitive pressure). However, market orientation had shown insignificant results both in the direct relationship as well as by including E-Marketing uses.

  • How Solidarity Influences Political Actors to Manage the Refugee Crisis:
           the Case of Proactiva Open Arms

    • Authors: Gemma Álvarez-Jiménez, Maria Padrós-Cuxart
      Pages: 215 - 229
      Abstract: Europe is facing the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II, and the Mare Nostrum has become the path that millions of people are using to flee from the armed conflict, especially since the Syrian war began in March 2011. In this sense, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), 1,014,973 people arrived to Greece, Italy and Spain by sea in 2015. Nevertheless, the Mediterranean area has become the scene of not only a humanitarian crisis but also citizens’ solidarity. In this sense, Proactiva Open Arms, an NGO mostly formed by lifeguards, has helped 135,000 people to reach the coast safely, 10,273 of whom sailed in wandering boats. Of these individuals, 475 fell into the water and 9,067 were trapped on the cliffs. Proactiva Open Arms’ work has driven European and Greek authorities to respond to refugees. In this paper, we analyse through this case how solidarity among civil citizens can change political actions and encourage other citizens to act in solidarity, as part of the H2020 European funded research project SOLIDUS.
