Civil society and gender justice : historical and comparative perspectives /

by Hagemann, Karen (ed.) | Michel, Sonya (ed.) | Budde, Gunilla (ed.).

Publisher: New York, NY Berghahn Books 2008Description: xi, 324 p. ; 24 cm.Other title: European civil society ; volume 4.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. [302]-308) and index.Summary: This book offers both a revised gendered history of civil society and a program for making it more egalitarian in the future. An interdisciplinary group of internationally known authors investigates the relationship between public and private in the discourses and practices of civil societies; the significance of the family for the project of civil society; the relation between civil society, the state, and different forms of citizenship; and the complex connection between civil society, gendered forms of protest and nongovernmental movements. While often critical of historical instantiations of civil society, all the authors nonetheless take seriously the potential inherent in civil society, particularly as it comes to influence global politics. They demand, however, an expansion of both the concept and project of civil society in order to make its political opportunities available to all.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Crompton, Tom | World Wildlife Fund (WWF-UK).

Publisher: London, U.K. World Wildlife Fund (WWF-UK) 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010 Bibliography : p. 89-96Summary: This report is intended to catalyse debate on current approaches to tackling a wide range of challenges, including global poverty, climate change and biodiversity loss. Whatever the success of civil society organisations in beginning to address such challenges, these often seem to be intractable or worsening. Throughout this report such challenges are referred to, collectively, as 'bigger-than-self' problems. This is to distinguish them from another class of problem: one that it is clearly in an individual's immediate self-interest to invest energy and resources in helping to tackle (for example, an insensitive development in their neighbourhood).Availability: (1)

From exclusion to inclusion? : reflections on the Celtic tiger. /

by Adshead, Maura | Brotherhood of St Laurence | McInerney, Chris.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2009Description: 21 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 10.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2009 Bibliography : p. 18-21 Developed from a presentation to a Brotherhood Lunchtime seminar delivered on 17 October 2008.Summary: International and Australian interest in the place of associations and partnerships to create more inclusive governance forms continues unabated. In this paper we trace the evolution of Irish partnership approaches by providing a brief summary of 'flagship' partnership initiatives and the primary influences that led to their creation. In doing so, we note that there were a variety of external and internal impetuses towards partnership, at European, national and sub-national levels of government, which manifested themselves in different partnership projects at these different levels. As a result, despite sharing many common attitudes and approaches, these partnership initiatives inevitably reflected different policy aims and ambitions.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
