Women's rights and the family in a changing global world

by J Horsfield @ Hearts Minds Media

Solidarity in Europe: Citizens' Responses in Times of Crisis (Palgrave Studies in European Political Sociology)

by Christian Lahusen

This open access volume provides evidence-based knowledge on European solidarity and citizen responses in times of crisis.

Mobile Professional Voluntarism and International Development: Killing Me Softly?

by Helen Louise Ackers

This book is open access under a CC BY license.This book explores the impact that professional volunteers have on the low resource countries they choose to spend time in. Whilst individual volunteering may be of immediate benefit to individual patients, this intervention may have detrimental effects on local health systems; distorting labour markets, accentuating dependencies and creating opportunities for corruption. Improved volunteer deployment may avoid these risks and present opportunities for sustainable systems change. The empirical research presented in this book stems from a specific volunteering intervention funded by the Tropical Health Education Trust and focused on improving maternal and newborn health in Uganda. However, important opportunities exist for policy transfer to ot...

by Ericka Johnson

An exploration of how global pharmaceutical products are localized - of what happens when they become ‘glocal’ - this book examines the tensions that exist between a global pharmaceutical market and the locally bounded discourses and regulations encountered as markets are created for new drugs in particular contexts. Employing the case study of the emergence, representation and regulation of Viagra in the Swedish market, Glocal Pharma offers analyses of commercial material, medical discourses and legal documents to show how a Swedish, Viagra-consuming subject has been constructed in relation to the drug and how Viagra is imagined in relation to the Swedish man.Engaging with debates about pharmaceuticalization, the authors consider the ways in which new identities are created around dru...

by Marie Louise Seeberg

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license.This open access book explores specific migration, governance, and identity processes currently involving children and ideas of childhood. Migrancy as a social space allows majority populations to question the capabilities of migrants, and is a space in which an increasing number of children are growing up. In this space, families, nation-states, civil society, as well as children themselves are central actors engaged in contesting the meaning of childhood. Childhood is a field of conceptual, moral and political contestation, where the ‘battles’ may range from minor tensions and everyday negotiations of symbolic or practical importance involving a limited number of people, to open conflicts involving violence and law enforcement.
