A spider chart with a world map at its core and a single axis, which is numbered 4. The endpoint of the axis has an icon of a person giving a something to another person. There is an interdependence between people’s agency ‘to do and be’ and the societal, culture and structural institutions that mediate their lives (see Chapter 7 ). An anthropological view of humanity illuminates how survival and flourishing are generated through three functions: distribution/production (the market economy); redistribution (the state); and reciprocity (society
Introduction The topic of this article is how German parents talk about and reflect on independence and interdependence in parent–child relationships when it comes to starting daycare. It chooses an interdisciplinary approach, and uses the sociological concept of ‘intensive parenting’ and the cultural psychological conceptual dichotomy of independence/interdependence as frameworks. Independence and interdependence can be defined as ‘patterns of family-related value orientations’ ( Mayer et al, 2012: 64 ) that set the boundaries for what is considered a

151 TWELVE HIV care and interdependence in Tanzania and Uganda Ruth Evans and Agnes Atim Introduction The principle of ‘Greater Involvement of People Living with or Affected by HIV/AIDS (PLHA)’ declared at the 1994 Paris AIDS Summit provided widespread international commitment (in rhetoric at least) to the participation of people living with HIV in tackling the epidemic at all levels. Organisations and networks of PHLA have grown rapidly in eastern and southern Africa in recent years in order to campaign for their rights to health. Research in Tanzania
stifled before they reach expression or consciousness. However, censorship can be an impetus to creativity. Censorship silenced many cartoonists and prevented them from expressing unique perspectives about religion, but it also shaped works that somehow escaped suppression. As Michel Foucault explains in his essay on the work of philosopher Georges Bataille, ‘A Preface to Transgression’, there is an interdependence between transgression and taboo. ‘The limit and transgression depend on each other for whatever density of being they possess: a limit could not exist if
The Care Collective ( 2020 ) The Care Manifesto: The Politics of Interdependence Verso Pamphlets Series 128 pp ISBN: 9781839760969 The Care Manifesto begins with an argument that ‘carelessness reigns’ via a panoply of familiar left-wing concerns – military budgets, wealth inequality, climate change, institutional racism, pupil poverty, the gig economy, offshore finance, colonialism, individualism and so on – which have exacerbated COVID-19’s global onslaught. The growth of a market logic across the formal care sector and society generally has rendered
finally settling in March on a positive focus on the Bahraini leadership’s own efforts. An illustrative August 2020 message carried the subject, ‘Bahrain sets new records for test & trace efforts’. Clearly, GCC rulers are aware that their COVID-19 performance is not only under immense public scrutiny, but also being judged against a new, significantly more concrete and global standard. Social competition amid interdependence What began as a public health crisis in COVID-19 has morphed into an all-encompassing disruption to ordinary life in most places around the
, presuming that in a globalized world, no actor’s behaviour can be understood without embedding it in a larger context. The chapter proceeds in three steps. First, it assesses growing economic entanglements and interests to explore how China and the EU pursue their interests globally. The results provide an understanding of the impact of complex interdependence on the EU–China security relationship. Second, it explores the roles of the EU and China as actors of global governance and examines their entanglements beyond the economic realm. Finally, it opens the black box of
This important collection presents a radical reconception of the place of knowledge in contemporary policymaking in Europe, based not on assumptions about evidence, expertise or experience but on the different forms that knowledge takes.
Knowledge is embodied in people, inscribed in documents and instruments, and enacted in specific circumstances. Empirical case studies of health and education policy in different national and international contexts demonstrate the essential interdependence of different forms and phases of knowledge. They illustrate the ways in which knowledge is mobilised and resisted, and draw attention to key problems in the processing and transformation of knowledge in policy work.
This novel theoretical framework offers real benefits for policymakers, academics in public policy, public administration, management studies, sociology, education, public health and social work, and those with a practical interest in education and health and related fields of public policy.
Ageing, meaning and social structure is a unique book advancing critical discourse in gerontology and makes a major contribution to understanding key social and ethical dilemmas facing ageing societies. It confronts and integrates approaches that have been relatively isolated from each other, and interrelates two major streams of thought within critical gerontology: analyses of structural issues in the context of political economy and humanistic perspectives on issues of existential meaning. The chapters, from a wide range of contributors, focus on major issues in ageing such as autonomy, agency, frailty, lifestyle, social isolation, dementia and professional challenges in social work and participatory research. This volume should be valuable reading for scholars and graduate students in gerontology and humanistic studies, as well as for policy makers and practitioners working in the field of ageing.
