Empowerment Through Agency Enhancement: An Interdisciplinary Exploration

Empowerment Through Agency Enhancement: An Interdisciplinary Exploration by Mine Sato
English | EPUB | 2022 | 240 Pages | ISBN : 9811912262 | 0.5 MB

This book focuses on the understanding of factors and mechanisms involved in the development of agency mainly in three related contexts –- participatory development, extension work, and service transactions.
The research has its starting point in the recognition of the critical role played by “agency” (commonly understood as want/will for and practice of self-determination and self-management) on the part of intended beneficiaries of services and projects for effective implementation and sustainability. It is designed to address this subject matter with its principal focus on inner capacities and orientations of human beings, posing questions as to how such capacities and orientations could be enhanced and activated in practice by external actors in the field of public policies for socioeconomic and international development. The project is organized transcending traditional disciplinary boundaries –- combining anthropological, psychological, and economic approaches and perspectives.

Towards Gender Equality in Law: An Analysis of State Failures from a Global Perspective

Towards Gender Equality in Law: An Analysis of State Failures from a Global Perspective by Gizem Guney
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 262 Pages | ISBN : 3030980715 | 3.5 MB

This book aims to find out how and why states in various regions and of diverse cultural backgrounds fail in their gender equality laws and policies. In doing this, the book maps out states’ failures in their legal systems and unpacks the clashes between different levels and forms of law—namely domestic laws, local regulations, or the implementation of international law, individually or in combination. By taking off from the confirmation that the concept of law that is to be used in achieving gender equality is a multidimensional, multi-layered, and to an extent, contradictory phenomenon, this book aims to find out how different layers of laws interact and how they impact gender equality.

The Fault Lines of Inequality: COVID 19 and the Politics of Financialization by Huw Macartney
English | EPUB | 2022 | 128 Pages | ISBN : 3030969134 | 0.8 MB

This book examines how decisions made by the Conservative government during the COVID19 pandemic have increased economic inequality in the UK. Decades of austerity, asset-based welfare and financialization had already exacerbated social divisions in the UK prior to the pandemic. The political blueprint behind these measures combined Privatized Keynesianism and the Asset Economy. To explain, economists have highlighted that inequality derives from the fact that income from wealth increases at a faster rate than income from wages.
