Polly Akankwatsa Mugisha The Socio-Economic Effects of Migration on Places of Origin

This study investigated the socio-economic effects of migration on places of origin in rural Ankole, Western Uganda in 1990-2000. The study was carried out in the migrants area of origin not migrants area of destination. A sample of 300 households comprised of 2024 people was drawn from two counties (Igara and Ruhinda) of Bushenyi District, Western Uganda. Households with or without people who have migrated were compared to ascertain socio-economic differences in their status. A total of 148 households who have had out migrants and 152 households that have had migrants were compared. The independent variable was migration status of the household (migrant or non migrant) and the dependent variables were education, health, possessions in form of fixed assets, type of housing and affordability of certain food assets. A socio-economic index was computed to analyze expenditure patterns and well-being of the households. This was done because it is difficult to establish income levels of rural people. The socio-economic index shows the socio-economic status between households of migrants and non migrants.

Chengula Augustino Alfred, Mdegela Robinson Hammerthon, Kasanga Christopher Jacob Molecular Epidemiology . Socio-economic Impacts of Rift Valley Fever

This Manuscript is about a mosquito-borne viral disease that have a great impact in livestock and humans in Africa. The disease was first characterized by Daubney and his co-workers, Hudson and Garnham in 1934, while working at the Veterinary Research Laboratory at Kabete in Kenya. The work is on Molecular epidemiology of Rift Valley fever (RVF) and its socio-economic impacts. The manuscript gives a good overview on the molecular epidemiology of RVF using serum samples that were collected during the 2006/07 outbreaks in different areas of Tanzania. The socio-economic part uses the same outbreak to try to describe the effects that were associated with the outbreaks. The findings have shown that there were viruses of RVF circulating in the country that affected animals as well as human leading socio-economic effect at individual and national level.

A volume in Research in Management ConsultingSeries Editor Anthony F. Buono, Bentley UniversityThis volume is part of the ongoing collaboration between the RMC series and the Socio-Economic Institutefor Firms and Organizations (ISEOR), a French intervention-research think tank co-directed by Henri Savalland Véronique Zardet. Building on an earlier collaboration on the ISEOR approach - Socio-EconomicIntervention in Organizations: The Intervener-Researcher and the SEAM Approach to OrganizationalAnalysis (IAP, 2007) - Buono and Savall bring together over 30 talented intervener-researchers to exploreand examine the ongoing evolution of the Socio-Economic Approach to Management (SEAM).This volume revisits the application of SEAM in the context of intervention challenges in the wake of the recent economic crisis and the disruptivechange that has taken hold across the world. The basic foundation of SEAM - built on the idea of strategic patience, the need to undertake holisticintervention in organizations, and the challenge to get organizational members to listen to themselves (through what they refer to as the mirror effect)- has remained the same. In response to economic and organizational pressures in the current environment, however, there has been a concomitantemphasis on helping client organizations achieve short-term results while still maintaining focus on the long term. Many ideas that have become partof the current discourse within ISEOR today were not as explicitly address...

Master's Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Sociology - Individual, Groups, Society, grade: B, , language: English, abstract: Population control is an objective that many developed worlds focus on but not many have worked on it directly as a research. Deaths due to food, water, agricultural crises, violence, conflict could occur if we do not follow an authentic strategy. United nation's food and agricultural organization stated that World population may be 10 billion by 2050. Daily climate changes are occurring due to that result they predict that doing agriculture will not be an easy task to cultivate crops. Food is associated with climate change if climate is not appropriate then food cannot be cultivated. Keeping this is mind the research aims at understanding the problems associated with high population, and to see if population its self is the issue. The research follows a mixed method design taking for both quantitative and qualitative researches paradigm. Low Education has showing that Low Education did have significant effect on Socio Economic Problems. Poor Governance has significant effect on Socio Economic Problems.Moreover, the Poor Farming Methods have significant effect on Socio Economic Problems. This shows that the farming methods of the country are good enough to feed the people but other variables are effecting the country and the problems and making things worst.

Ntandokayise Ndhlovu Protection of socio-economic rights in Zimbabwe. A critical assessment of the domestic framework under the 2013 Constitution of Zimbabwe

Socio-economic inequality is deeply rooted in Zimbabwe due to a number of factors. One of the main factors is the exclusion of socio-economic rights as justiciable under the now repealed Lancaster House Constitution (LHC). A plethora of excessive bureaucratic actions in a number of instances left many people stranded without the recourse to the law, particularly without protection by the Constitution. To correct this historic anomaly, the 2013 Constitution was enacted. The 2013 Constitution protects both civil and political rights and socio-economic rights in the same way as justiciable rights. This provides the highest degree of interdependence and interrelatedness of all rights in the domestic legal order.In order to ensure that socio-economic rights are effectively protected and enforced, this study identifies and discusses the framework for protecting socio-economic rights under the 2013 Constitution. Firstly, the specific rights protected under the Constitution and the obligations imposed by these rights are presented. Secondly, the role of the courts in the protection of socio-economic rights is discussed. Further, some of the major conceptual and practical challenges that are likely to arise in the adjudication of socio-economic rights are identified. In this regard, the study attempts to present solutions meant to overcome the conceptual and practical challenges that are faced in the enforcement of socio-economic rights. Furthermore, this study argues that strictly ad...

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,0, ESCP Europe Business School - Campus London (Institut für Marketing), course: Konsumentenverhalten, language: English, abstract: PURPOSE:The various efforts of individuals to raise their status as recognised by others have previously been understood as measures independent from one another. This thesis critically questions this rigid perspective and points out reasons that would lead one to conclude interdependencies between the individual measures. The thesis points out that individuals use the interdependent measures in a strategic way depending on their economic (e.g. income, property) and social (e.g. education, upbringing) circumstances and combine them with one another according to certain criteria in order to raise their relative status advantage vis-à-vis others.FINDINGS:The results of the study show that individuals use various combinations of strategies to raise their status depending on their economic and social circumstances. The results were applied to the model of Pierre Bourdieu (1984) with a differentiation between economic and cultural capital. The differentiation between directly existing and externally signalled economic and cultural capital at times showed significant differences. The individuals, depending on the reference group, their existing status norms as well as their demographic circumstances...

Quayson Emmanuel, Adu-Bitherman Paul Migration and Socio-Economic Status of Rural Households

There is the growing concern by governments of most developing countries over the implications of migration on the socio - economic development of their people. In Ghana, this concern has been well articulated by civil society organizations, District Assemblies, local and international NGOs as well as governmental agencies. Particular emphasis has been placed on how to deal with the extent to which internal migration impedes rural development through the loss of able-bodied young men and women who could assist in tilling the land to produce food and cash crops for the upkeep and sustenance of the household in particular, and the community as a whole. There have been efforts by the government of Ghana local and international NGOs as well as some civil society organizations to deal with the serious threats that migration poses to the environment and the employment situation in the urban centres. However, most rural communities in Ghana are still under- developed, to some extent, as a result of migration. It is in view of the above that this study was carried out to identify the factors that influence migration and its impact on the status of rural household resources in the district.

Paul Kiumbe, Omondi Bowa Participation in Business Plan Competitions in Kenya

The Government of Kenya has over the recent five years been running Business Plan Competitions. These initiatives have been aimed at identifying growth oriented and innovative business ideas that can be nurtured into viable and sustainable enterprises. The initiatives dubbed Jitihada and Chora Bizna have been marked by poor participation by the targeted MSMEs. Since participation is key to success of such interventions, the researcher was prompted to investigate the factors influencing the participation of MSMEs in these initiatives in Nyeri Municipality. This study is based on Vrooms (1964) expectancy theory that states that work effort by individuals is dependent on the outcomes that they expected. It is also based on Leon Feistinger's theory of cognitive dissonance that suggested that attitudes shape people's behavior, action and judgment.

Godfrey Bernard Nyamushamba Impact of Zimbabwe Economic Crisis on Tourism Viability

The study investigated the impact of Zimbabwe's economic crises on tourism viability from 2000-2010. Data were collected through questionnaires, in depth interviews and document analysis and analysed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 13. The study revealed that tourism was negatively affected by the economic crisis. It is concluded that the economic crisis impacted on tourism viability as evidenced by the low volumes of tourists. Recommendations drawn from this research are that there is need by government to develop tourism - related sectors that include transport, infrastructure development and information communication technology. The government should make sure that airports are refurbished to attract more tourists. The need for a conducive investment climate is important for the tourism sector as it is for all other sectors of the economy.

Bellundagi Veerabhadrappa, S. Patil Suresh, Jadhav Vilas An Economic Analysis of Bt Cotton Seed Production in India

The Bt (Bacillus Thuringiensis) cotton seed production focussed on the socio-economic characteristics of contract farmers, cost and return, efficiency of resource use and problems faced by the farmers in Bt cotton seed production under different companies. The total cost of Bt cotton seed production varied from one company contract farmers to other company contract farmers. The Cobb-Douglas production function revealed that the farmers who have contracted with different seed companies, the use of seed was found to be optimum across all company contract farmers. Whereas, fertilizer resource was over utilized by farmers who have contracted with various companies. Non availability of trained labour and prevalence of high wage rate were the major constraints in case of production, where as poor technical assistance and low contract price were the contractual problems. Therefore the Bt cotton seed production technology had positive impact on Socio- economic status of farmers by increase in yield and reducing cost on inputs thereby increase in income and also standard of living.

Scientific Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: It is an axiomatic fact that women leadership does not grow automatically rather it grows with the dynamic process of socio-cultural development of the country. Bangladesh and West Bengal, having a traditional socio-economic structure, do not have regular and systematic process of political participation of women, which is directly or indirectly linked to patriarchal values and kinship ties. Despite that in the recent days, numbers of women leaders at the grassroots level local government of both geographical areas have increased remarkably due to some change in the socio-cultural contexts and dimensions. Therefore, it deserves academic analysis and interpretation to delve into the dynamics and process of socio-cultural context that have contributed for the development of women leadership in both cases.

Master's Thesis from the year 1993 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, Durham University, language: English, abstract: Attempts to account for the prevalence of woman's inferior position in the home or in the labour markets still leave unexplained the persistence of inequalities between the sexes in both domains despite the presence of increasing female labour participation. The study assesses the importance and extend to which women's life cycle variables shape their economic activity and perpetuate their subordination. Finally, the analysis suggestes that ideological or cultural structures are the more important correlates of women's economic activity and that life-cycle variables cannot adequately account for the persistence of their low status in the labour force.

Andreas Hahn Between Presidential Power and Legislative Veto. The Impact of Polity and Politics on Economic Reforms in Brazil

Doktorarbeit / Dissertation aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Allgemeines und Vergleiche, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The pace and scope of the Brazilian economic development in the 1980s and 1990s is intrinsically linked to the wide-ranging discussion of political and economic reform projects. In the wake of the crisis of the import-substitution economic model a wide array of approaches and theories revolved around one basic question: When there occurs a crisis in the economy - whatever definition of crisis may be applied in a particular case - which are the best ways of overcoming anti-reform resistances, regain economic growth and promote sustainable and ―future-approved‖ development? In the most general sense a crisis of the political or economic system can be referred to as two-dimensional: on the one hand it means the shattering and dis-equilibrating of a formerly successful status quo, on the other hand it opens up the necessity to find a new status quo (or status quo post) that can be deemed compatible to the new economic, domestic as well as international, circumstances. In fact, the longer a prosperous status quo lasts, the more difficult a subsequent change will get. Path-dependencies develop, stable institutions arise, group interests and organizations take root and expectations about growth, inflation, external trade and other variables cement into place.

Narendra Kumar Illuru, Venkateswarlu Chintala Socio-economic Condition Of Agricultural Labour In Andhra Pradesh

One of the most basic problems of the present century in the Third World Countries is rural poverty. The rural labour households form the hard core of rural poor and the most of the socially backward classes, such as, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes fall in this category. Most of the population is depending upon agriculture that is contributing about one-fourth of the National Income in the country. The most important feature of them are that they have very little or low productive assets and the major part of their income is derived from casual or irregular employment available in villages in Andhra pradesh.The dimensions of poverty among the rural labour households are reflected by the extent of indebtedness among the households and low consumption levels. The basis of findings of the study, it would be useful to make some suggestions that would help to improve the socio-economic conditions of agricultural labourers. The improvement in the socio-economic conditions of the agricultural labour, the large segment of work force would promote economic welfare in general and ultimate lead the Indian economy on the path of growth with stability.

Manuel Kaar The Impact of Participation in Publicly Funded R.D Projects on Firm Competitiveness

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 5.5, University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland, language: English, abstract: This thesis studies the involvement of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in publicly funded research and development (R&D) projects. SMEs represent 99% of all companies in Europe and are important drivers of innovation, yet many lack the necessary resources to engage in formal research activities. Providing these firms with the possibility to make use of public funding programmes for R&D projects therefore constitutes a way of stimulating them to innovate. Reviews of such programmes, however, show that SME participation is frequently lower than desired by policy makers. This raises the question of the benefits SMEs can gain from such projects and the barriers that negatively influence their ability to participate. The author hypothesises that taking part in publicly funded R&D projects can positively influence an SME's competitiveness through a specific set of advantages gained from participation. The second hypothesis is that companies with previous experience in such projects evaluate their participation positively. Finally, the author puts forward that a number of specific barriers limit SMEs' ability to participate. The hypotheses were tested by means of an online survey among Swiss SMEs in the field of renewable energy, as well as interviews with rep...

In the Ethiopian case, Studies show that almost half of the children are either stunted or underweight. This paper contributed to this concern by filling a noticeable gap. Principally this paper examines the role of women's status on children's nutrition security in Ethiopia using the EDHS 2011 survey. The paper employs both descriptive and Econometrics tools (both bivariate and Multivariate techniques) to show the interrelation ship among different women's status indicator variables including other socio economic variables on child nutrition. The study found that women's education, decision making role of women, women's attitude towards domestic violence and child age as a significant factor for child nutrition. The study also found that wealth index of households, availability of toilet and sanitation services as determining factor for child nutrition.

Elma Satrovic Merits of Life Insurance

Document from the year 2018 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 14, University of Sarajevo, language: English, abstract: In this book linear panel data estimators are employed to investigate the relationship between life insurance and economic growth. This study contributes to previous studies by using Maximum likelihood estimation of dynamic panel that was not used in previous studies concerning the aforementioned relationship; by controlling for number of factors thought to influence economic growth; by referring to a much larger number of countries and by exploring the relationship between life insurance and economic growth while controlling for the degree of financial sector development, as well as for the regional and income disparities. Sixteen models that explore the impact of control variables integrated singly in the equations and an integrated model that controls for the impact of all key variables are estimated. Empirical results reveal a significant positive relationship between life insurance and economic growth in models -. Education is reported to have a positive impact on economic growth. Government spending is found to have a negative impact on economic growth, while model reports that inflation has a negative impact on economic growth. Trade openness is not reported to have a significant impact on economic growth in model. Model reveals a significant positive impact of banking sector on economic growth; significant negative impact of non-life insuranc...

Guita Hourani Understanding Socio-Economic and Political Mobility of Naturalized Kurds in Lebanon

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Near East, Near Orient, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, language: English, abstract: In this thesis, I examine and compare the Socioeconomic Status and the Subjective Social Status of the naturalized at the time of naturalization and 15 years after in order to explore how, notwithstanding other factors, the naturalized perceive their situation pre and post-naturalization. I analyze the strength of the association between citizenship acquisition/naturalization and socioeconomic mobility and political participation through Socioeconomic Status (SES) and Subjective Social Status (SSS) among 164 Kurds who were naturalized Lebanese by the Presidential Decree 5247/1994 of June 20, 1994. I also examine their political participation through voting and political partisanship in order to test the theory whether their political engagement at the beginning of the process shifted downward to a state of political apathy in the years since their naturalization, and whether there is a significant gap between them and the native-born in voting turnout.

Pühringer Julia Igbo Business Women in Enugu

With the launching of the United Nations (UN) Decade for Women (1975 - 1985) discussions about the importance of integrating women into the formal economy began to attract worldwide attention. Henceforth, various development theories emerged, which all aim at increasing women's access to income in order to alleviate poverty, foster national development and economic growth and target gender equality. Although emphases of the theories shifted, nomenclatures changed and criticism grew over the years, the underlying assumption and prevailing consent remained the same: female empowerment through economic participation. This book confronts such theoretical assumption with empirical knowledge obtained in the course of 23 interviews conducted with self-employed Igbo business women in Enugu (Nigeria). The underlying hypothesis is that the interviewees' economic participation is rather a temporal survival strategy based on the challenging economic conditions than a deliberately chosen means to female empowerment.

Decoding the Socio-Economic Approach to Management. Results of the Second SEAM Conference in the United States

A volume in Research in Management ConsultingSeries Editor: Anthony F. Buono, Bentley UniversityIn May 2014, the French research laboratory ISEOR (Socio‐Economic Institute for Firms and Organizations) andthe University of St. Thomas co‐sponsored a second conference on the application of the Socio‐Economic Approachto Management (SEAM) paradigm and methodology in the United States. SEAM is a scientific approach to consultancy that focuses on uncoveringthe dysfunctions and hidden costs that exist in organizations, "hidden" in the sense that they are not captured by traditional accounting methodsand financial analyses. Through intervention that encompasses the entire organization - what the ISEOR team refers to as the HORIVERT approach(combining horizontal and vertical intervention) - the underlying goal is to enhance organizational performance by attacking the "TFW virus," avestige of the early work by Frederick Taylor, Henri Fayol, and Max Weber that has sufficiently infiltrated our thinking about management and organizationto the point where are falling well short of our own potential. The resultant dysfunctions this virus unleashes creates hidden costs thatreadily destroy a firm's value‐added possibilities. The volume captures the ideas, applications, and exchanges of that meeting, attempting to bringthe reader into the conference itself. Chapters include the contributors' presentations ("Chapter Prologue: Conference Remarks"), revised conferen...

Narazani Edlira, Basic Sanela, Stojilovska Ana Migration and Empowerment of Women in the Western Balkans

The book provides an analysis of the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in traditionally patriarchal societies in three Western Balkan countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia. The study focuses on the household unit and examines the positions of women with and without migration experience in their families. Research findings suggest that the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in three selected dimensions (socio-cultural, economic and domestic decision making) depends crucially on the personal ability of each individual woman to consider the migration experience in light of the complex interface of socio-economic factors in both home and host countries.

Instead, Atenra proposes that African leaders should organize their societies based on a new revolutionary ideology -- Maatism. "Maatism: An Indigenous African Revolutionary Ideology" will undoubtedly be the most discussed and debated book among scholars, students, and government leaders around the world.

Fred Haggerson The Failures of Reaganomics and Neoliberalism

Polemic Paper from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, , language: English, abstract: President Ronald Reagan promoted and passed into law provisions of an economic plan that came to be known as Reaganomics. The principles of his plan were based on the neoliberal economic theory originally developed by Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig Von Mises of the Austrian school of economics. The major principles followed by Reaganomics were as follows: 1) totally free markets, devoid of government intervention are the best way to promote economic growth and personal freedom, 2) the government should refrain from any interference economic matters, 3) taxes should be kept at as low as possible to stimulate economic growth, 4) government regulations should be eliminated except those that ensure contracts, 5) government should not own businesses or property and should privatize those that it does own, and 6) international trade should be promoted by removing all tariffs and quotas. Laws and policies based on neoliberalism were passed from 1981 through 2008 in the US and have had influence on the national economy down to the present. Based on analysis of economic results and political developments during the period this paper argues that Reaganomics and neoliberalism have failed to improve economic growth and the preserve personal freedom above that provided by of the Welfare State which has developed in the US and OECD countries for more than a hundred years.

Capitalism and Modernity: The Great Debate

This important new book investigates how the West attained its current position of economic and social advantage. In an incisive historical analysis, Jack Goody examines when and why Europe (and Anglo-America) started to outstrip all other continents in socio-economic growth.Drawing on non-Western examples of economic and technical progress, Goody challenges assumptions about long-term European supremacy of a 'cultural' kind, as was a feature of many theories current in social science. He argues that the divergence came with the Industrial Revolution and that the earlier bourgeois revolution of the sixteenth century was but one among many Eurasia-wide expressions of developing mercantile and manufacturing activity.This original book casts new light on the history of capitalism, industrialization and modernity, and will be essential reading for all those interested in the great debate about the economic rise of the West.

Shigi S.J. Evarist William Human empowerment towards sustainable economic development

This book is an economic and philosophical discourse on sustainable economic development inspired by Ujamaa and the philosophy of self-reliance advocated by Julius Nyerere as a policy towards social and economic development. The book explores human empowerment as a means to sustainable economic development. It argues that human empowerment in developing countries can build on Nyerere's approach to development founded on community participation. However, self-reliance is not possible without the ability to build sustainable development and-, self-reliance philosophy and efforts towards development in their current forms have lacked the ability to intensify people's capability. Human empowerment is needed to produce people with vision, who can reflect on situations, initiate relevant and responsible action, and thereby transform situations for the common good. The empowerment I recommend is endowed on education, entrepreneurship and civil societies. Building on Amartya Sen's philosophy of the capability approach to development, empowerment will provide relevant solution for developing countries to break away from economic dependency and the vicious cycle of poverty.

Ambaye Degefa Social Organization and Status of Occupational Groups

There has been little interest in studying the occupational groups in Ethiopia, in particular the woodworkers who are usually referred as "Fuga" by the host societies. A few attempts made by some scholars reflect only the past prejudices and stereotypes attached to them. In the past members of this occupational groups lived at the bottom of the economic ladder in harsh and despotic social environment. Their status was ambiguous because on the one and they were discriminated against and at the same time they were badly needed. This book, the result of anthropological study, reveals the actual current social organization and status of the occupational group: the case of woodworkers who refer to themselves as Amarikan, rejecting the term Fuga, and settled in a village called Megnako and Gambela in Woliso district, south-western Shewa in Ethiopia. The book illustrates how social status and socio-economic positions of this community have been altered over time, mainly since their migration to the present living area in the beginning of 1957 and after the 1974 revolution in the country.

David Gotcher Immigrant Economic Attainment

This book examines variation in the economic attainments of immigrants to the United States from Latin America, relying primarily on data drawn from the 1990 census. The purpose is to explain as accurately as possible why this variation occurs. Typically, researchers have chosen between two competing explanations. One, human capital theory, contends that variation in economic attainment is a product of different characteristics of individuals. The other, social capital theory, contends that variation in economic attainment is a product of differences in characteristics of the societies from which the workers come. The question is whether we must choose one over the other. Given that both theories have empirical support, the challenge is to build an appropriate methodology that allows us to partition the variation in economic attainments, identifying how much is explained by individual and how much by group characteristics.

Seminar paper from the year 1991 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, grade: A, University of the West Indies (School of Education), course: Sociology of Education, language: English, abstract: 'The Determinants of Academic Achievement' have been the subject of much discussion in the past and up to recent times. Extensive studies have been done and diverse conclusions have been reached. Earlier research was centered on developed countries, but recent times have seen an emphasis on developing countries and this has given rise to much controversy over the extent to which school and non-school factors influence academic achievement and the educational benefits of increasing expenditure on policy controlled schooling variables.The observation has been made by Simmons and Alexander (1980) that home background or parental socio-economic status generally has a stronger influence on student performance at primary and lower secondary grades than the policy-controlled schooling variables. Their conclusions were drawn, in part, from a review of a number of studies conducted by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) in developed countries. Using the education production function (EPF) approach, Simmons and Alexander sought to equate the relative cost of school inputs to the relative value of outputs. Their conclusions have been variously supported, challenged or contradicted by previous and subsequent res...

Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College, John R. Deni Political and Socio-Economic Change. Revolutions and Their Implications for The U.S. Military

Significant political, economic, and social change can dramatically impact the international security environment and hence U.S. security. For example, the revolutions that have unfolded across the Middle East and North Africa over the last several years have impacted American interests such as the security of Israel and the spread of democracy. Likewise, the less "revolutionary" but equally impactful changes that have unfolded across Latin America over the last 15 years have affected American interests such as free and open trade and access to reliable energy sources. In response to these changes, American leaders will wield diplomacy, development, and defense tools to safeguard U.S. interests and to fulfill broader policy objectives. Whether and how those leaders choose to wield Landpower-a critically important element of the defense toolbox-is subject to significant debate these days in light of sequestration's continuing impact and the post-war drawdown impacting the U.S. Army in particular.

Acquired brain injury (ABI) describes damage to the brain that occurs after birth, caused by traumatic injurysuch as an accident or fall, or by non-traumatic cause such as substance abuse, stroke, or disease. Today'smedical techniques are improving the survival rate for people of all ages diagnosed with ABI, and currenttrends in rehabilitation are supporting these individuals returning to live, attend school, and work in theircommunities. Yet strategies on the best way of providing community participation vary among rehabilitationexperts. Because many of survivors of ABI do not and will not return to the status quo of their former lives itis important to examine what constitutes best and promisingpractices in this area.This casebook is the world's first compilation of evidence-informed programs that foster communityparticipation for people of all ages with brain injury.

Can Büyükbay Consequences of Globalisation on Turkish Women Regarding Labor Participation

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Miscellaneous, grade: 5 (Schweiz), University of Bern (Geographisches Institut), course: Politische Geographie, language: English, abstract: Globalisation is marked by growing economic interdependence and internationalisation of capital. Some of the important characteristics of this phenomenon are the increasing interconnectedness between societies as a result of the rapid development of communications and growing trade, the invention of new technologies, increased capital mobility and the growing importance of transnational corporations (McGrew 2005: 22). It became increasingly clear that globalization was, from the beginning, a process based on gender discrimination, which meant it affected men and women differently in an economic, social and cultural sense. Global markets, free production zones, and new growth strategies make women the victims of development programmes. In Thailand, Bangladesh, Mexico, China and in many areas of the so-called "Third World", western capital exploits the cheapest workforce. The governments there have offered their young women to the international capital and were willing to create so-called "free production zones" in which the capital has great freedom. Free production zones are being strongly criticised, because foreign companies do not need to respect any labour protection laws in these areas, and have plenty of room to manoeuvre and ...

Teacher Certification and the Professional Status of Teaching in North America. The New Battleground for Public Education

This book locates recent developments in teacher certification in North America within a broader,international policy context characterized as hegemonic neo-liberalism wherein economic rationalismhas begun to trump professional judgment. We focus on teacher certification because itaddresses fundamental questions about who will teach, what are the required minimum levels ofcompetence, and who will make those decisions. Such questions are central to teaching, constitutinga new battleground for education in North America.Two ideas-economic rationalism and professionalization-have become pivotal to educationpolicy. Economic rationalism finds its expression in a free market ideology. Professionalization has two meanings: professionalizingthe practice of teaching (constructing a professional knowledge base); and professionalizing the status of teaching (through links withuniversities and self-regulation). These ideas' contestation varies by setting. In the USA, neo-liberalism has attacked professionalknowledge, questioning its scientific veracity. Professionalization advocates claim that the neo-liberalist aim is to undermine teachingas a profession. In Canada, neo-liberalist critics are heard but have limited impact on policy. Professionalization has emphasized teachers'pedagogical development and a valuing of the field's input into teacher preparation.Neo-liberalist economic rationalism plays itself out overtly in the USA as de-regulation; in Canada, it lies embedded ...
