• THE FOUNDATIONS OF SECTION 116 OF THE AUSTRALIAN CONSTITUTION: AN HISTORICAL AND CONCEPTUAL ANALYSIS

      Beck, Luke (The University of SydneySydney Law School, 2015-12-01)
      This thesis seeks to understand and analyse the foundations of section 116 of the Australian Constitution by situating the provision in its proper historical and conceptual context. The thesis argues that section 116 can be conceptualised as a safeguard against religious intolerance on the part of the Commonwealth. The thesis begins by demonstrating that section 116 cannot be understood as a simply analogue of the religion clauses of the United States Constitution due to the very different constitutional cultures existing at the times the Australian and United States Constitutions were drafted. The thesis examines how the topic of religion came up for consideration in the period in which the Constitution was drafted and explores the motivations and machinations of those who ultimately succeeded in persuading the Australasian Federal Convention (‘Federal Convention’) held between 1897 and 1898 to include religious words in the constitutional preamble. It also explores the motivations and machinations of those who were opposed to that course of action and who persuaded one of the delegates at the Constitutional Convention, Henry Bournes Higgins, to pursue the inclusion of a religious freedom provision that eventually became section 116. The thesis interrogates the argument advanced by Higgins at the Federal Convention in favour of section 116, challenging the standard account of that argument and arguing that Higgins was concerned that the religious words of the preamble might somehow give rise to an implied Commonwealth power to legislate in respect of religion. The thesis investigates why the language of section 116 was chosen and shows that the precise language of section 116 was not the result of careful consideration, suggesting a disconnect between the purpose of the provision and its language. The thesis also shows that the meaning of the precise language of section 116 was not something to which the Convention gave any real consideration, and suggests that the Federal Convention seems to have believed that the limited language of section 116 amounted in some way to a complete denial of power to the Commonwealth to legislate ‘on the subject of’ religion. The thesis also asks how these foundations of section 116 can be conceptualised, concluding that the provision can be conceptualised as a partial safeguard against religious intolerance on the part of the Commonwealth. The thesis also considers official proposals to amend section 116 and considers whether the conceptualisation of section 116 would need to be revised had those proposals for constitutional amendment succeeded.

    • The gender order of prophetic diaconia

      Ninna Edgardh; Erik Lundström (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht Verlage, 2017-04-01)
      The article starts from a growing ecumenical consensus on the importance of prophetic diaconia in relation to the global challenges of the 21st century. The specific question addressed concerns how the churches can lay a better foundation for prophetic diaconia by discarding their traditional gender structure. The more churches free themselves from the patriarchal aspects of their traditions, the more credible they become as social critics – and the more they are free to do their work for the world’s healing. The article builds on a master’s thesis in educational management on deacons as the whistle-blowers of the Church, a role which is coded as female and related to a predominantly male-coded resistance, questioning, and criticism. The article argues that this shows a hitherto neglected area of research that deserves more extensive studies in the future.
    • The Glue That Holds Our Work Together: The Role and Nature of Relationships in Youth Work

      Rodd, Helen; Stewart, Heather (ACYS Australian Clearinghouse for Youth Studies, 2009)
      Professional identity is an ongoing topic of discussion in the youth work literature. This paper looks at one of the key elements of the definition of youth work: the relationships that youth workers establish with young people. It presents research findings which suggest that youth workers have multidimensional relationships with young people that have an educative component and therapeutic value. It is argued that these relationships are integral to the way in which youth workers work with young people, and that the significance of relationships to youth work should be documented in order to gain recognition and support from the field and from funding bodies.

    • The Guise of the Bad

      Raz, Joseph (Scholarship Archive, 2016-01-01)
      My topic is the possibility of acting in the belief that the action is bad and for the reason that it is, as the agent believes, bad. On route, I examine another question – namely whether agents can, without having any relevant false beliefs, perform actions motivated by the badness of those actions. The main worry is the compatibility of action for the sake of the bad with the thesis of the Guise of the Good (roughly that actions undertaken with an intention to perform them are undertaken because they are, as the agents see things, good in some respects). The examina-tion is helped by considering the way reason explanations and the more widely understood normative explanations can explain actions, in light of the conditions for the rationality of actions and the bearing of masking beliefs (broadly: self-deceived beliefs that mask the agents’ true motives or reasons from them) on the explanation of their actions. The discussion leads to consideration of the possibility of various conceptual mistakes. Given the variety of human motivations, I focus on the interpretation of one case: the Luciferian motive, understood, roughly, as the drive to defy the limits of thought or of rational thought.

      Eliasson, Johanna (Uppsala universitet, Institutionen för kulturantropologi och etnologi, 2018)
      Initiatives in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are getting more pronounced than we as a society are used to, and spurs confusion over the perceived dichotomy between corporate ethicising and profitability. H&M is a company engaging in these initiatives, and their manifest of CSR will be analysed for discourse content. Themes such as social institutions, contrasted groups, individuality and collectivism and agency emerge within the pages of the H&M group’s sustainability report.

      This thesis aims at highlighting the salient characteristics of the illegal immigration of young Tunisians in these times of globalization. We propose to examine this phenomenon at the point of its generation and by its actors, The Harraga, (the frontiers burners), across time and space. We describe this new form of mobility which is placed in a migratory context hitherto unseen just before “The Arab Spring” and Ben Ali downfall. We have identified a chronology which is organized around a central point of departure, highlighting the challenges, fears and hopes. We have shown that the migration process can be understood as a long process of maturity that starts with the incubation stage, takes shape and becomes mature and subsequently blossoms in the move to action becoming irreversible. The aforementioned process is carried out in various places of socialization described in the thesis: Cafés, beaches, neighborhoods, interstitial areas of the town. At every stage of these, the process implies inevitably social and spatial issues. This paper therefore puts forward a description and a sociological analysis of migration paths taken by these new avatars of postmodern nomadism, as well as the networks they used, including family and friendly environment. In this regard, is proposed an analysis of these networks and their operation as well as smugglers pictures.

    • The Impoliteness Strategies in the 2016 Second U.S. Presidential Debate

      Ibrahim, Rinaldi (2017-12-21)
      This research examines impoliteness aspects presented in the 2016 second U.S. Presidential Debate. The objectives of this research are to describe the realizations of impoliteness strategies employed by the participants and to identify the addressees’ response to the impoliteness strategies addressed to them. This research used Culpaper’s Impoliteness as a theory. This research used a qualitative method. The sources of data were the script of utterances spoken by the participants. The results of this research are described as follows: first, four types of impoliteness strategies occur in the participants' utterances i.e. bald on record impoliteness, positive impoliteness, negative impoliteness, and sarcasm. Bald on record impoliteness becomes the most dominant type used by the participants. It indicates that the participants wanted to convey their ideas about the other participant directly and clearly. Second, there are two responses which occur in the debate i.e. no response and countering the face attack. No responses became the most frequent choice of responses of impoliteness strategies used by the participants. This response becomes the most dominant because the participants did not have chances to reply the realization of impoliteness strategies and the participants attack the other people who do not present in this debate.
    • The Importance Of Christian Youth Ministry Involvement In Community Development In The Mayibuye Community

      Mawethu Msebi (Noyam Publishers, 2022-02-01)
      This article reports on the findings of the Christian youth ministry involvement in
 community development in the Mayibuye community (Tembisa-Gauteng Province,
 South Africa). The article employed the use of Richard Osmer’s model of the
 four tasks of practical theological interpretation in describing and analysing the
 situation in the Mayibuye community. The tasks sought to give an understanding
 of what is happening in youth ministry and community development contexts in
 the Mayibuye community. The study relied on both documentary analysis and
 in-depth semi-structured interviews. The findings revealed that several socioeconomic challenges antagonize local communities, and young people are the most
 affected, as they possess a more significant number amongst all community sectors.
 The findings further discovered that the youth and youth ministry involvement
 is limited in community development processes amid local communities. In this
 light, the Mayibuye community has been experiencing a low level of education,
 gender inequity, unemployment, sexual-related challenges, substance abuse, and
 illicit conduct amongst the social ills. The study introduced promoting values,
 enhanced respect for others, driving service with integrity, and more as the
 benefits of youth ministry involvement in community development. The study
 also recommended further empirical studies on youth ministry involvement in
 community development, enhancement of collaboration between local religious
 communities and government, and engagement of young people in community
 development processes.
    • The In-between Church : A Study of the Church of England's Role in Society through the Prism of Welfare

      Middlemiss Lé Mon, Martha (Uppsala universitet, Teologiska institutionenUppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2009)
      The aim of this thesis has been to explore the role of institutional religion in western Europe between individual and society. This is achieved through an empirical study of the role of the Church of England at local level, using the area of social welfare as the prism through which broader issues of the place of the Church in society can be brought to light. At the heart of this thesis lies a case study of the town of Darlington in the North East of England. This is set against a background of a detailed description of the situation regarding religion and welfare in England and of the organisation and situation of the Church at national level. The case study uses a variety of qualitative methods to assess the Church's role in welfare at local level and the expectations and perceptions of its involvement in this sphere held by representatives of the churches, local authorities, voluntary organisations and town residents. The role of the Church of England in its national and local context is therefore used as one example which can shed light on issues pertinent to a broader European one. To this end the results of the case study are compared with the situation in Sweden to tease out the extent to which conclusions pertaining to the established church in England can also be applied in a wider European context. The study concludes that the Church has a continued role to play in welfare both in terms of practical provision and social activism. It reveals that the Church is, at one and the same time, both seen as one of many organisations in civil society and also perceived to have a particular part to play in society at local level. This continuing though changing role 'in-between' individual and society can be further specified as including three dimensions: mediator, neutral ground and critical voice. This suggests that a distinct role in society is also possible for other religious institutions in Europe today within their national contexts, as representatives and upholders of overarching common values in the public sphere. It indicates that although the relationships between individuals and institutional religion and the role religions have to play in society today are ambiguous, they are by no means absent. Thereby the study engages with and contributes to the development of the theoretical debate concerning social change in late modern society, the continued role of institutional religions in the public sphere and the relevance of the secularisation paradigm.
