    • ‘Can We Find Other Ways Forward?’: 'Church Relations among Migrants and Non-Migrants in the Church of Sweden'

      Kristina Helgesson Kjellin (Helsinki University Press, 2019-03-01)
      Belonging to religious communities is of great importance for many migrants coming to Europe. This article focusses on one such community, a Lutheran Ethiopian/Eritrean Mekane Yesus association in Stockholm, and its relations with the Church of Sweden. The article discusses identity formation and belonging in a situation of living in the diaspora, as well as analysing the processes of integration that involve diversity work. This example shows how global power hierarchies in church relations are played out in the local arena - power relations that signal, but also sometimes challenge, a post-colonial order. Furthermore, an identity like Lutheran is highly contextual, as the article shows. While the role of Lutheran churches in the Nordic context is understudied when it comes to migration, this article – and the study it builds on – contributes to a deeper understanding of how the Church of Sweden is being both challenged and motivated to act in relation to migrants coming to Sweden.
    • Canadian Muslim Voting Guide: Federal Election 2019

      Zine, Jasmin; Chakroun, Fatima; Abbas, Shifa (Scholars Commons @ Laurier, 2019-10-01)
      This guide assigns a grade to each federal political party Leader's response to identified key issues of importance to the interests of Canadian Muslims and the wider geopolitical concerns that affect Muslims globally. The criteria used to determine these grades has been based on whether a party leader's particular political standpoints and/or policy initiatives are positive or detrimental to the interests of Canadian Muslims and the wider geopolitical concerns that affect Muslims globally.

    • Capabilities for Central American Minors

      Madrid, Sergio (ScholarWorks@CWU, 2015-05-21)
      Based on Martha Nussbaum's Capabilities Approach, I argue that unaccompanied minors from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras should be granted asylum in the United States. Nussbaum's approach answers a basic question: what is this person able to do and to be? A just society should create freedom and opportunities by securing capabilities for each and every individual to function at a threshold level in every way required for decent human existence. Her approach is focused on protecting areas of freedom, so vital, that their removal would make life unworthy of human dignity. An individual should be provided these fundamental freedoms and opportunities created by a combination of personal abilities, political, social, and economic environments. Thus, because of political corruption, increased violence, and an ongoing failure to meet basic needs in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, Central American children fleeing to the United States should be granted political asylum.
    • Capability, Care, and Personal Assistance: Making Connections

      Bridget Anderson (Fachgesellschaft Geschlechterstudien, 2021-07-01)
      
 
 
 The Capability Approach/Capability Theory (CA/T) makes the normative claim that freedom to achieve well-being is of primarymoral importance. It has made significant contributions in its original field of Development Studies and has also been used in other fields as a framework to assess the relation between well-being and socio-economic contexts, to inform policies for social change. CA/T’s move from a focus only on resources (redistribution) reveals how the relation between the elements of participation and freedom in the achievement of well-being becomes contested. This paper will use two examples from empirical research conducted with disabled people, their personal assistants and care workers to explore how attention to participation, connection, and affiliation can further develop CA/T. 
 
 
    • Care and justice: Two sides of the same coin of a critical care ethics in social work

      Pease, B; Vreugdenhil, A; Stanford, S; Hay, J (Taylor & Francis Group Ltd, 2018)
    • ‘Care is not a dirty word!’ Enacting an ethic of care in social work practice

      Hay, J (Routledge, 2017)
      While ‘care’ has been positioned as a core value of the social work profession since its inception, the increasing influence of neoliberal rationalities have placed care on the periphery of social work theory and practice. Social work scholars have promoted the incorporation of ethic of care theory into direct social work practice as a means of countering the effects of a context that is antithetical to caring practice. I present findings from my Australian study, providing an original contribution by presenting concrete understandings of how social workers enact care in everyday direct social work practice. The study was guided by a grounded theory approach. Fifteen social workers were interviewed using a semi-structured interview schedule. The interviews were analysed using constructivist grounded theory techniques. ‘Meeting needs’, ‘just being there for clients’, ‘building relationships with clients’, and ‘going the extra mile’ were some of the ways that participants demonstrated care in their practice. Constraints on care were challenged and resisted by ‘taking a stand’, ‘bending the rules’, ‘picking battles’, ‘justifying care’, and ‘taking risks’.
    • Care-(Ethik) und das Ethos fürsorglicher Praxis (Literaturstudie)

      Kohlen, Helen; Kumbruck, Christel (Universität BremenZentrale Wissenschaftliche Einrichtungen und KooperationenARTEC Forschungszentrum Nachhaltigkeit, 2008-01)
      Diese Arbeit setzt sich mit den anglo-amerikanischen Care-Konzepten auseinander. Sie fällt in eine Zeit, in der die finanziellen Ressourcen im deutschen Gesundheitswesen knapper werden. Im Diskurs in deutschen Ethikkommissionen (die es vermehrt in Krankenhäusern gibt) wird vorrangig mit dem Prinzip der Autonomie argumentiert. Eine explizite Care-(Ethik) Debatte ist zwar in der Pflegewissenschaft erfolgt, jedoch hat die Pflegewissenschaft andere Schwerpunkte gesetzt, insbesondere die der Professionalisierung von Pflege, und wird im Bezugsrahmen der Pflegepraxis in Deutschland nicht rezipiert. Im Rahmen des Projektes „Die Bedeutung neuer Geschlechterverhältnisse für die Neue sozio-kulturelle Definition des Ethos
 fürsorglicher Praxis - am Beispiel Pflege“ versprechen wir uns von einer Beschäftigung mit den anglo-amerikanischen Care-Ansätzen Hinweise auf wichtige Elemente des Ethos fürsorglicher Praxis. Diese werden identifiziert; des weiteren wird überprüft, ob und wie sie in der deutschen Pflegepraxis zur Kenntnis genommen werden.
    • Caretakers of the Garden of Delight and Discontent: Adirondack Narrative, Conflict, and Environmental Virtue

      Holmlund, Eric Richard (AURA - Antioch University Repository and Archive, 2010-01-01)
      This dissertation concerns a widely recognized natural area, New York's Adirondack Park, that serves both as an international model for conservation and as a context for persistent conflict over natural resources, space, wealth and esthetics. It employs narrative inquiry as a method to examine the sources and the function of narratives or stories explaining the history and the present status of social groups in the Park. Narrative theorists maintain that we borrow from such socially circulating narratives to craft our own identities, and then repeat them until we believe them, almost without regard for the factual basis in history or science. The dissertation follows the progress of the author, a professor of environmental studies at a small Adirondack college, as he delves into the formation of his own Adirondack identity and values while traveling with his family from the state capital, Albany, deep into the Adirondack interior. The interdisciplinary approach includes a critical overview of environmental history as it pertains to class and conflict in the Adirondack Park, an exposition of narrative epistemology, interviews with four subjects, a praxis-oriented exploration of environmental virtue, and targeted memoir. This narrative dissertation is at once an intellectual, philosophical, personal and spatial voyage toward a set of answers, or more clearly articulated questions, concerning how one regional community struggles toward finding a satisfactory balance between nature and culture. The author identifies a set of themes that help to bound and conclude the inquiry: Landside and Lakeside, Camps and Camping and the Virtues of the Caretaker.
    • Carrying Their Native Land and Their New Home in Their Hearts Mihailo Pupin and Bishop Nikolai of Žiča between Their Native and Adopted Country

      Vasiljević, Maxim (Belgrade : Institute for Balkan Studies SASA, 2020-04-13)
      The present study gives us an opportunity to look at the Christian heritage that the Serbian immigrants brought to the new land of Americas through the examples of Mihailo Pupin and Nikolai Velimirović, Bishop of Žiča, since these two names are indelibly inscribed in the history of the so-called Serbica Americana. The paper is divided into two sections dealing specifically with their Serbianism and Americanism to show that a distribution of love and loyalty between their native and adopted country functioned in a fruitful way. Based on a detailed analysis of their writings, the author suggests that Serbians and Americans remember Pupin and Velimirović because they enjoy the benefits of their remarkable contributions. The following aspects of Pupin’s and Nikolai’s lives are examined: their deep concern with the fate of Serbia during and after the First World War; their leading roles among the Serbs in the United States through their assistance in establishing Serbian churches and communities, through their scholarship funds, philanthropic work, etc. Their genuine care for Serbia and Serbs was in no way an obstacle in their adjustment to their adopted country.

    • Case Study 1: Movement Groups with Flat, Innovative Governance Structures

      Ashar, Sameer M.; Jagannath, Meena (UCI Law Scholarly Commons, 2018-01-01)
      Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, the global justice/anti-globalization movement, the radical environmental movement of the 1990s, and other organizations have moved away from traditional hierarchical models of leadership within their movements in favor of more horizontal, “leader-full” structures or network models. More horizontal or network models have been used even when a group of people is engaged in what might ordinarily be considered “service” work, like disaster recovery and feeding the hungry. Relatedly, organizers of mass mobilizations may engage the support of lawyers even before these actions crystallize into a movement or formally structured organization—as informal governance structures exist in the planning and execution of these mobilizations. One example is the Ferguson Legal Defense Network, which formed under the direction of trusted lawyer contacts amidst the mass mobilizations in Ferguson in the aftermath of the police killing of Michael Brown Jr. This short contribution examines some of these non-traditional, social movement-based lawyer-client relationships, evaluates the accompanying professional responsibility challenges, and offers preliminary approaches. These challenges—though not insurmountable—require thought and a foundational understanding of the goals and methods of social movement organizations.
    • "Casus belli" problema Vinco Kudirkos publicistikoje

      Vaišnys, Andrius (2009)
      Straipsnyje nagrinėjama Vinco Kudirkos įvardyta ir vis dar aktuali jo publicistikos problema, kurią pats autorius apibūdino kaip "casus belli" - pretekstą "karui sukelti", apkaltinant puolimu prieš tam tikrą socialinį sluoksnį. Remiantis publikuotais šaltiniais ("Tėvynės varpais" ir jau aprašiusiais V. Kudirkos pažiūras autorių darbais), naujai nagrinėjamos visuomenės atgarsį sukėlusios ir tebekeliančios jautriausios temos, atsižvelgiant ir į jų publikavimo imtį. Šio straipsnio tikslai: pirma, aptarti šaltinius, kuriais autorius naudojosi kaip pamatu polemikai plėtoti juos atsirinko, tyrinėjo (skaitė), vertino, kaupė socialinei kritikai pateikti; antra, įrodyti, kad jie padėjo V. Kudirkai atskleisti socialinių konfliktų priežastis ir nuosekliai juos vertinti XIX amžiaus socialinės raidos kontekste.
