    • 0 papel da Universidade na construjao do Pais [The role of the University in the construction of the Country]

      Panizzi, wrana (Instituto Humanitas Unisinos - IHU, 2004)
      "Para comegar, eu acho um excelente tema sobre o qual discutir, porque o debate sobre a universidade muitas vezes fica reduzido. 0 papel da universidade e criar o saber de nivel superior que o Brasil precisa para ser construido como nagao independente, eficiente e justa e contribuir para ampliar o patrimonio cientifico e cultural da humanidade. Por isso eu considero o tema que estao abordando extremamente oportuno, porque as pessoas esquecem que este e o papel da universidade, imaginando que e beneficiar o aluno. Pensam que o papel da universidade e ajudar os jovens a subirem na carreira social deles. E isso tambem, mas o fundamental e que esses jovens vao ser reconhecidos com bons salarios, prestigiados e respeitados, porque sao os que constroem o saber de nivel superior de que o Pais precisa. "

    • 'But you can't compare Malawi and Ireland!' - shifting boundaries in a globalised world

      Gaynor, Niamh (Routledge, 2010)
      Although global influences - in the form of international finance coupled with discourses of partnership, participation, good governance, and democracy - exercise an increasing influence on national and local governance arrangements worldwide, comparative studies across the traditional South/North divide remain extremely rare. Drawing on findings from a comparative study of Malawi's PRSP and Ireland's national Social Partnership process, this article demonstrates that a shifting of conceptual boundaries beyond traditionally delineated geographic borders is not just valid but essential, in that it helps to reveal new perspectives on the politics underlying globalised development processes and the transformative potential of those processes.
    • 'Citizenship Education' - Brücke zu einer europäischen Identität?

      Zeuner, Christine (Fachportal Pädagogik. DIPF, 2006)
      Traditionally, concepts of citizenship education aim at integrating immigrants as well as new generations of citizens in a certain society. The concepts are usually closely related to the idea of a 'nation-state', implying rights of inclusion and exclusion according to social and political status. An extended understanding of citizenship education as it was for example developed in the notion of global learning, which aims at the 'global citizens', surpasses the boundaries of national thinking. Various international concepts of citizen, citizenship, and citizenship education are discussed in order to develop a concept of European citizenship education which might help to shape a 'European identity'.

    • 'Global civil society' and hegemonic global governance: a Gramscian analysis of the NGO campaigns to ban landmines and cluster munitions

      Connolly, Eileen; O'Dwyer, Diana (Dublin City University. School of Law and Government, 2014-11)
      This thesis uses a historical materialist Gramscian framework to develop an alternative, critical analysis of two post-Cold War international arms control campaigns by non-governmental organisations (NGO) – the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) in the early to mid-1990s and the Cluster Munitions Coalition (CMC) a decade later. Dominant liberal and liberal-constructivist narratives portray the campaigns as indicative of a broader ‘power shift’ in the international system towards traditionally less influential actors, including NGOs as representatives of an emerging ‘global’ or ‘transnational’ civil society, small and middle power states, and intergovernmental organisations (IGOs). This is seen to have arisen from the decreased polarisation of the international system since the end of the Cold War and the globalisation of the information revolution, which are said to have enhanced the salience of soft or communicative power and contributed to an emergent, more multi-actor and more democratic system of global governance networks in which NGOs, small and middle powers and IGOs can increase their influence by working in ‘partnership’ – yet all concerned maintain their fundamental autonomy and independence. By contrast, drawing on Gramsci’s understanding of civil and political society as integral components of capitalist states that are dominated by elite interests and interact in the reproduction of capitalist hegemony, this thesis shows how both campaigns were driven by large, professionalised Western NGOs despite their ‘global civil society’ appearance; depended on likeminded sections of the Western donor community of Western governments, IGOs and private foundations for support; and ultimately exerted international influence through reconstructing the legitimacy of existing Western- dominated international military and economic power structures on an alternative ‘humanitarian’, more pluralistic, and ostensibly more democratic basis. This reflected the normally hegemonic, non- autonomous role of civil society from a Gramscian perspective in generating consent to states’ monopoly of force and the class interests this protects, but also the neoliberal restructuring of states since the 1980s towards privatisation and outsourcing of governance functions to NGOs, including at the international level. This has increased the resources available to NGOs and their international influence, while simultaneously reducing their autonomy from the Western donor community and integrating them more tightly into international governance structures and the increasingly transnationalised interests of Western states.
    • 'How can we go on caring when nobody here cares about us?' Australian public maternity units as contested care sites

      Reiger, Kerreen; Lane, Karen (Elsevier, 2013-06-01)
      BACKGROUND: Provision of personalised, continuous care focused on 'well women' is now central to midwifery identity and work ideals, but it remains difficult in hospital contexts shaped by increased demand and by neoliberal policies. Previous accounts of occupational and work-family conflicts in midwifery and nursing have pointed to the 'moral distress' associated with managing conflicting expectations in health workplaces. QUESTION: This paper examines these issues in the Australian context and considers further the ethical implications of midwives not feeling 'cared for' themselves in health care organisations. METHODS: Qualitative research in several Victorian maternity units included use of interviews and observational methods to explore staff experiences of organisational and professional change. Data were coded and analysed using NVivo. FINDINGS: Midwives reported frequent contestation as they sought to practice their ideal of themselves as caregivers in what they reported as often 'uncaring' workplaces. To interpret this data, we argue for seeing midwifery caring as embodied social practice taking place within 'organisation carescapes'. CONCLUSION: Theoretical analysis of the moral and ethical dimensions of the contemporary organisational structure of maternity care suggests that a practice-based and dialogical ethic should form the core principle of care both for women in childbirth and for their carers.
