  • Practical-Problematic Features of the Application of the Rule of Exception
           to the Admissibility of Evidence (pt. 6 of Article 1.93 of CC of the
           Republic of Lithuania)

    • Authors: Karolis Kaklys
      Abstract: Article 1.93 (pt. 2) of the Civil Code of the Republic of Lithuania there is an established imperative that non-compliance with the form required by law deprives the parties of the process of the right, when there is a dispute regarding the conclusion of the transaction or the fact of its execution, to rely on the testimony of witnesses to prove this fact. In this scientific article, an empirical study was conducted, the purpose of which is to evaluate Article 1.93 (pt. 6) of the CC of the Republic of Lithuania the practical-problematic features of the application of the rule of exception to the admissibility of evidence, i.e. when, after applying the exception, the court is not guided by Article 1.93 (pt. 2) of the CC of the Republic of Lithuania established imperative. The research consists of six interrelated stages, during which the following scientific methods were applied: systematic analysis, document analysis, comparative analysis, logical-analytical, observation and generalization methods. The chosen research strategy and methodology determines the reliability of the research results and allows us to answer the hypothesis - is the jurisprudence formed by the Supreme Court of Lithuania sufficiently detailed and delineating clear boundaries for the courts of lower instances, applying Article 1.93 (pt. 6) of the CC of the Republic of Lithuania established exception to the admissibility of evidence and in order to avoid dual application of the legal norm. The research results are presented together with the conclusions, the essential conclusion is that - after the formation of a more detailed the highest court jurisprudence regarding the application of the rule of exception to the admissibility of evidence, Article 1.93 (pt. 2 and 6) of the CC of the Republic of Lithuania, the equality of persons would be ensured, more concreteness and stability would be created in civil relations, and this would significantly facilitate the resolution of disputes in the future.

  • The experience of compulsory volunteering: the obstacles for voluntary
           sector in Post-Soviet countries

    • Authors: Irma Pranaitytė
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the compulsory volunteering experience under the Soviet regime and highlight specific reasons, which keep individuals away from getting involved in activities in voluntary organizations. The paper examines the factors, which keep individuals away from joining voluntary organizations, and examines what influence the experience of compulsory volunteering has. A qualitative research approach has been chosen. Respondents were individuals born between 1945 and 1965 and lived under the Soviet regime. 30 interviews were conducted with individuals who have not been involved in voluntary organizations.
      The results reveal the understanding of the concept of volunteering, the factors, which keep individuals away from volunteering, and what role the experience of compulsory volunteering has played. Voluntary organizations can use the results in order to encourage potential volunteers to join their voluntary organizations.

  • Measuring environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture across the EU
           countries based on Solow residual-based MFP

    • Authors: Vlada Vitunskienė Lina Lauraitienė
      Abstract: Scientific publications on environmentally sustainable or green growth in agriculture are increasingly becoming more important but empirical research is scarce. In empirical studies, the most commonly accepted way to assess environmentally sustainable or green growth in agriculture is based on measures of total factor productivity (TFP) or multifactor productivity (MFP) growth. Both measures are important for analytical and monitoring tools that can help to better understand the factors affecting output growth as well as the determinants of changes in production factors (labour and produced capital) in agriculture. Growth of TFP or MFP is achieved through the application of technologies and advanced production practices that result in higher output from the same amount, or lower inputs (labour and produced capital).
      Conventional TFP and MFP are not suitable for the assessment of environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture because both indicators do not include environmental variables such as environmental pollution and natural capital. There is a lack of comparative empirical studies between EU countries. This study focuses on the problem of measuring environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture. The aim of this study is twofold: firstly, to develop a framework for the assessment of environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture, based on information collected in public databases; and secondly, to empirically analyse environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture in EU countries over the long period. The environmentally adjusted multifactor productivity (EAMFP) growth measure was applied to assess environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture of the EU’s countries. For analysis, the environmental pollution of agricultural production was expressed as net GHG emissions, and natural capital was expressed as the quality-adjusted agricultural land area.
      The research was conducted using literature overview, decomposition technique and cluster analysis method. The 28 EU countries (including the United Kingdom, which was a member of the EU until January 1, 2020) were included in the empirical analysis. The analysis covered the period between 2005 and 2019 and a five-year average annual change rates (2005-2009 and 2015-2019 respectively) were used to compare the environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture between the beginning and the end of the considered period, as is common in most agricultural growth studies.
      The findings show that pollution-adjusted GDP growth in agriculture was achieved in less than a five of the EU countries at the beginning of the considered period, and in most of the EU countries at the end of the considered period. In most of the EU countries, the environmentally sustainable growth in agriculture was mainly determined by technological progress, while the slow change in environmental pollution (net GHG emissions) did not have a significant contribution to agricultural growth in all EU countries. Following the hierarchical clustering method, three significantly different clusters of the EU countries were identified in terms of gross added value growth and technological progress in agriculture of EU countries in the context of environmentally sustainable growth.

  • Assessment of the Factors Affecting the Intention to Invest in a P2P
           Lending Platform

    • Authors: Gintarė Leckė Gabrielė Milašiūtė Akvilė Šeškevičiūtė
      Abstract: The digitalisation of the financial system and the rapid growth of new financial technologies are
      contributing not only to the change of the financial system, but also to the change of the way people make
      financial decisions. The development of financial technologies has led to the emergence of new financial
      services and products, such as P2P lending. With the growth P2P lending market, the scientific literature
      pays more and more attention to the analysis of investment intentions through P2P lending platforms and the
      assessment of the factors affecting the intention to invest (Dja’akum, 2019; Fiorentino et al., 2020; Khan et
      al., 2021Yang ir Lee, 2016; Poeteri, et al., 2021). It should be noted that, although the interest of researchers
      in this field is growing, the research in the European context is not sufficient, which reveals the relevance of
      this study. Thus, the aim of the present study is to assess the factors that affect the intention to invest through
      P2P lending platforms in Lithuania.
      A theoretical review of the scientific literature revealed that previous empirical studies have categorised the
      factors of the intention to invest through peer-to-peer lending platforms into individual and platform factors.
      Individual factors are understood as risk appetite, perceived risk, financial literacy, while platform factors are
      understood as perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, trust. Attitude toward behaviour can be seen as
      both an individual and a platform factor. Other factors, such as relative advantage, compatibility, complexity,
      perceived behaviour control are also distinguished in the scientific literature, but are not considered in the
      analysis of the intention to invest through peer-to-peer lending platforms.
      Research data was collected through an online survey. The survey questionnaire was distributed online
      between February and April 2022. The survey sample consisted of 211 respondents. The conceptual research
      model was developed using a Modified Technological Acceptance (TAM) model, which was performed using
      the Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) method.
      The SEM analysis revealed that the intention to invest through P2P lending platforms was indirectly influenced by the trust of the P2P lending platform, perceived risk and risk appetite factors. The indirect impact
      was through attitude toward P2P lending platforms factor, which had a strong and significant positive impact
      on the intention to invest through P2P lending platforms. The effect of perceived usefulness and perceived
      ease of use on Lithuanian investors‘ attitudes towards P2P lending platforms was not statistically significant,
      and therefore no statistically significant effect of these factors on the intention to invest through P2P lending
      platforms was found.
