    • Authors: Eun-Jun Bang, Kathlyn Shahan, Aesha John, Christopher C. Garland
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: Although there are numerous research studies on post adoption services to improve wellbeing of adopted children and their adoptive families, there is scarce research on school adjustment of adopted children. To address this gap, the current study examined the link between experience of school bullying and psychological stress among Korean children adopted into U.S. white families. In addition, it examined the role of social support in moderation the association between the experience of being bullied and stress. One hundred sixty-one were mailed to adoptive families through Dillon International Adoption Agency. Thirty-one children completed and returned the packets. Data analysis utilizing independent t-test and ANOVA indicated that peer intervention and adults or teachers’ intervention could be a moderating factor to lower stress levels among Korean adoptees. The paper includes research implications of these findings as well as limitations of the study.

  • Strategies to Improve Demand for Services in the Social Health Insurance
           Programme: Nigerian Enrollee Perspective

    • Authors: Obi Vincent Ikechukwu, Ijeoma Lewechi Okoronkwo, Elizabeth Uzoamaka Nwonwu, Kamtoochukwu Maduneme Obi, Ifunanya Rosemary Obi
      Pages: 53 - 72
      Abstract: Globally, the World Health Organization has championed the introduction of various forms of health insurance as a means of improving the utilization of quality healthcare service which is targeted at achieving universal health coverage. Unfortunately, the operations of the Social Health Insurance Programme (SHIP) have witnessed inefficiencies in the demand for healthcare services as a result of moral hazard and this is evidenced by the non-achievement of set-out objective of the programme in Nigeria. Design/Methodology: The study adopted a qualitative approach which comprised of 3 focus group discussions (N=24). Key informants were purposely selected for the focus group discussion from three (3) purposively selected hospitals, one from each categorized type of facility. Content analysis was adopted and further analysis was achieved with the aid of Nvivo 11 software, which coded and categorized nodes into themes. Results: The focus group participants relayed their experiences in the programme which includes poor identification system, choice of only one provider except on emergency, benefit package not being comprehensive which has enabled moral hazard and suggested ways to improve it. Conclusions: Most of the enrollees do not show diligence in areas of demand for services and these were shown to emanate principally from economic issues around the enrollees desire to utilize the premium paid thereby leading to moral abuse. Therefore, certain measures need to be put in place so as to curtail observed market failures in the SHIP programme.

  • Silent Company Legal Regulation in the Republic of Macedonia

    • Authors: Ljupcho Petkukeski, Marko Andonov, Maja Stefkova Shterieva, Ljubomir Miodrag Radenkov
      Pages: 73 - 88
      Abstract: A silent company is a company in which a person (a sleeping partner) invests, i.e. participates with a cash or non-cash contribution in the enterprise of another person - the entrepreneur - a public shareholder and on the basis of the contribution acquires the right to participate in the profit and loss share of the enterprise. This company is created by concluding an agreement between the silent and the public shareholder.The silent company is not a trading company in compliance with the macedonian Company law. This company has no legal personality and no company name. It exists only in the relations between the sleeping partner and the entrepreneur - the public shareholder, and it does not appear in the legal relations with third parties. This company is not registered in the registrar of companies that is managed by a competent authority. The entrepreneur is the subject who acts in the legal relations with third parties and is an exclusive holder of all rights and obligations that arise from the business operation.Most commonly this type of company is used to implement business operations that are intended to stay hidden from the public. Reasons like the legal simplicity in the establishment of the company, the wide flexibility in arranging the relations between the public and the sleeping partner, the possibility of an easier way of financing the enterprise, the possibility of securing profits through a secret (silent) investment, make the silent company one of the good forms for successful realization of the business enterprise of the entrepreneur, on the one hand, and on the other hand it serves to satisfy the interest of the secret (silent) investor in a way that his investment will be hidden away from the general public.The main goal of this paper is to present and clarify the legal bases of the silent company in the Republic of Macedonia, to encourage the need for its re-regulation in the legislation of the Republic of Macedonia, as well as to indicate its advantages or weaknesses within the realization of the business operation.
