This article will attempt to reconcile Turner’s Communitas -based understanding of the liminal phase with the various forms of the Contestation Model propounded by his critics. It will argue that these models can, apparently, be reconciled if the given liminal phase is examined in terms of level and that this is most apparent when examining an initiation ritual rather than a pilgrimage. The article will draw upon detailed fieldwork with an evangelical student group operating in the highly liminal environment of Oxford University. It will demonstrate, notably in relation to the issue of social class, that each level of structure leads to communitas in which a further level of structure develops. Hence, it will be argued that there is concomitantly structure and anti-structure on each level of the multilayered university and university-evangelical-group experience. The article will appreciate that further research will of course be required to develop this idea theoretically and practically and will recommend future research in this regard.

Dolgozatunkban a teljesítményvolumen-korlát (TVK) hatását kívánjuk bemutatni a Pécsi Tudományegyetem Klinikai Központ (továbbiakban PTE KK) intézményi szintű finanszírozására. Adatok és módszerek: Az elemzésben szereplő adatok az Országos Egészségbiztosítási Pénztár (OEP) felé küldött jelentéseken alapulnak, mindenhol az aktív fekvőbeteg-szakellátásra vonatkoznak és a 2004–2008 közötti időszakot fedik le. Meghatároztuk az egy súlyszámra eső tényleges OEP-térítési díjat, a TVK okozta finanszírozási veszteséget. Elemeztük a területi ellátási kötelezettségen kívüli, illetve a sürgősségi esetek arányát klinikai bontásban. Eredmények: A PTE KK egy súlyszámra eső forint térítési díja a TVK bevezetését követően elmaradt az OEP által előre meghirdetett díjtól. A vizsgált 5 év alatt, vagyis 2004–2008 között a PTE KK esetében a TVK okozta veszteség 3,256 milliárd forintot ért el. A PTE KK egészének vonatkozásában az ellátott esetek 25,3%-a, illetve a teljesített súlyszám 24,5%-a a területi ellátási kötelezettségen kívülről érkező betegek ellátását jelentette. A sürgősségi esetek arányának vizsgálata a teljes betegellátási volumenen belül azt mutatta, hogy az esetek 31,5%-a, míg a súlyszámok 36,1%-a származott sürgősségi betegek ellátásából. Következtetés: A teljesítményvolumen-korlát bevezetése jelentős mértékben csökkentette a Pécsi Tudományegyetem Klinikai Központ egészségbiztosítási finanszírozását 2004–2008 között.

This paper is an assessment of Hungarian and Romanian degree-holder contingents of the Cluj/Kolozsvár university in times of spectacular political change and relative social stagnation. This university has invariably been localized within a higher educational market mostly limited to the needs of the ethnically mixed population of Transylvania, needs that were seldom, if ever, reflected in equitable ethnic enrollment ratios. Local ethnic competition in and through the academe was always conditioned by external centers of political gravitation. The integrative role of the university altered each time the centre changed, and each time it was exerted not so much along socio-economic but along ethno-political lines. The late imperial educational commonwealth before World War I was largely dominated by the Magyar element. The subsequent nation-state framework reversed the situation to the advantage of Romanians in the inter-war period. This was followed by yet another turn-over between 1940 and 1944. All the while the university was less an agent of modernization than a fortress of survival in a continuous struggle for national dominance. Ethnic dominance tended to prevail over reform and social advancement, and repeated failures in the latter were ascribed to the presence of the rival ethnic other in the competition.
