  • Defects of consent in English law: protecting the bargain? 

    Saintier, Severine (OUP, 2015-03-01)
    In English law, a voluntary and free consent is clearly regarded as essential for a valid contract to be formed. In consequence, mechanisms have therefore developed to protect against a defective consent, but they have ...
  • Defending their Land, Protecting their Men: Palestinian Women's Popular Resistance after the Second Intifada 

    Richter-Devroe, Sophie (Taylor and Francis, 2012-04-27)
    Popular resistance has, following the recent uprisings in different Arab countries, received increased media and scholarly attention. Yet, the role that women and gender play in civil resistance movements remains understudied. ...
  • The definition, measurement, and evaluation of tax expenditures and tax reliefs 

    Myles, Gareth D.; Hashimzade, Nigar; Heady, Chris; Oats, Lynne; Scharf, Kimberley; Yousefi, Hana (National Audit Office, 2014-06)
    Tax reliefs and tax expenditures are two closely related and overlapping concepts. The distinction between tax reliefs and tax expenditures is a subtle one and can only be clear after careful description of the two concepts. ...
  • Delay Aversion in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: an empirical investigation of the broader phenotype. 

    Bitsakou, P; Psychogiou, L; Thompson, M; Sonuga-Barke, EJ (Elsevier, 2009-01)
    Delay-related motivational processes are impaired in children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Here we explore the impact of ADHD on the performance of three putative indices of Delay Aversion (DAv): ...
  • Delay effect of switch-on in a supertwisted nematic cell 

    Yang, Fuzi; Dong, Youmei; Ruan, Lizhen; Sambles, J. Roy (American Institute of Physics, 2004)
    By using a convergent beam system and the fully leaky guided mode technique the switch-on dynamics of an 180° supertwisted nematic have been studied. Using the Ericksen–Leslie theory and analyzing the guided mode data taken ...
  • The 'Delaying of Age' Novel in Contemporary Italian Literature (1980-2011) 

    Masenga, Ilaria (University of ExeterModern Languages, 2013-04-23)
    This thesis explores the development of the Bildungsroman in Italian narrative between 1980 and 2011 and focuses, as a case study, on seven novels by three contemporary writers: Pier Vittorio Tondelli, Sandro Veronesi, and ...
  • Delegated job design 

    Hvide, Hans K.; Kaplan, Todd R. (SSRN, 2003)
    We develop a theory of delegation within organizations where agents are privately informed about whether they should be engaged in exploitation or in exploration activities. Excessive delegation lead agents to inefficiently ...
  • Deleuze and Film Music 

    Redner, Gregg (University of ExeterFilm STudies, 2008-09-30)
    This thesis grows from the premise that film music analysis is currently at an impasse. The reason for this impasse is the inability of film theory and music theory to relate to one another because of their lack of a common ...
  • Delivering stepped care: an analysis of implementation in routine practice. 

    Richards, DA; Bower, P; Pagel, C; Weaver, A; Utley, M; Cape, J; Pilling, S; Lovell, K; Gilbody, S; Leibowitz, J; Owens, L; Paxton, R; Hennessy, S; Simpson, A; Gallivan, S; Tomson, D; Vasilakis, C (BioMed Central, 2012)
    In the United Kingdom, clinical guidelines recommend that services for depression and anxiety should be structured around a stepped care model, where patients receive treatment at different 'steps,' with the intensity of ...
  • Delivering the IAPT Programme 

    Turpin, G; Richards, David; Hope, R; Duffy, R (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, 2008-04)
  • Demand Reduction and Responsive Strategies for Underground Mining 

    Williams, Nicholas Charles (University of ExeterCamborne School of Mines, 2014-01-10)
    This thesis presents a demand reduction and responsive strategy for underground mining operations. The thesis starts with a literature review and background research on global energy, coal mining and the energy related ...
  • Democracy and government performance: holding incumbents accountable in English local governments 

    Boyne, G; James, O; John, P; Petrovsky, N (Cambridge University Press, 2009-10)
    The link between government performance and support for incumbents is a key mechanism of accountable government. We model vote share of incumbent administrations in local government as proportional and non-proportional ...
  • Democratic Justice and the Boundaries Problem 

    Cordelli, C (Wiley, 2015-04-09)
    This article examines the way in which Albert Weale's procedural account of democratic justice understands: (1) the boundaries of the democratic social contract, in terms of who is included or excluded from the contract; ...
  • The Demography of the Greenland White-fronted Goose 

    Weegman, Mitchell Dale (University of ExeterBiosciences, 2014-10-08)
    New analytical and technological tools have the potential to yield unprecedented insights into the life histories of migratory species. I used Bayesian population models and Global Positioning System-acceleration tracking ...
  • Demons, evil and liminality in Cappadocian theology 

    Ludlow, Morwenna (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2012)
    Despite the growing literature on demons in late antiquity, there has been no detailed study of demons in Cappadocian theology. This paper argues that demons occupy a liminal place in Cappadocian cosmology: demons were ...
  • Dengue epidemic early warning system for Brazil 

    Lowe, Rachel; Rodo, X.; Barcellos, Christovam; Carvalho; Coelho, Caio A.S.; Bailey, Trevor C.; Jupp, Tim E.; Stephenson, David B.; Coelho, G.E.; Graham, Richard J.; Ramalho, W.M. (UNISDR Scientific and Technical Advisory Group, 2015)
    The problem Brazil has reported more cases of dengue fever than anywhere else in the world this century1. Many cities have tropical and sub-tropical climate conditions that allow the dengue mosquito to thrive during warmer, ...
