Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - Miscellaneous, grade: none, , course: Politics, language: English, abstract: Every since the creation of welfare states in the US and Western Europe there has been enumerable debates as to what extent the existence of such welfare states undermines individual freedom. These debates raise such questions as how should we define freedom? To what extent is freedom compatible with attempts made by the state to promote the welfare of its citizens? Does liberty reside in independence from state interference? Does the provision of welfare impose constraints on individual liberty? However this text goes further and questions whether morality should be taken into account when deciding who should receive state welfare? And whether state interference goes against human nature?

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, London School of Economics (International Inequalities Institute), course: Inequalities and Social Science, language: English, abstract: On 22 August 1996, President Clinton signed into law the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA), the most significant reform of the US welfare state in half a century. Since then, the press has generally claimed welfare reform to be a success despite complicated trends illustrating that for many in need of social assistance, life has gotten harder, especially for ethnic/racial minorities. As minority populations on the welfare rolls increase and become more diverse, and redistribution becomes increasingly essential to low-income individuals, it is important to analyze the ideologies and values of the US welfare state in comparison with their context. To do this, I analyze the social construction of welfare recipients in US news discourse from 1996 until 2012 using an integrated content and discourse analysis testing for presence of and patterns within stigamtizing, otherizing, and/or racialized associations with welfare recipients. Generally, my findings illustrate that stigmatization, otherization, and racialization remained prevalent within welfare discourse over the period of analysis; although functioning separately, they reinforced each other to ultimately portray welfare recipients, especially B...

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - Political Theory and the History of Ideas Journal, grade: 1,7, Hertie School of Governance, language: English, abstract: The welfare regime typology of the Danish sociologist Gøesta Esping-Andersen has become a modern social science classic and is widely used as a theoretical foundation for all kinds of research projects. However, his three-folded model differentiating regimes on the basis of welfare provision has also been challenged. Many studies have criticized Esping-Andersen for his non-acknowledgement of a Southern welfare regime including Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy (...). Historic circumstances have produced fragmented welfare states which provide partly extensive state-led services, e.g. in health care, but have very limited benefits in other areas. The question remains whether "the peculiarities of these cases are variations within a distinct overall logic [or] a wholly different logic per se", as Esping-Andersen (1999, p.90) has formulated it.Claire Bamba (2005) has challenged Esping-Andersen's welfare regime typology focusing on health care and identified two additional subcategories. Bamba argued that health care provision is a very distinguished feature of the welfare state and countries may follow a different logic in their health care services than they pursue in other branches of their welfare states (...).This paper argues that Southern countries can be included in Esping-Andersen&#...

Linda Faye Williams The Constraint of Race. Legacies of White Skin Privilege in America

5364 руб.
The Constraint of Race offers a challenging new approach to understanding the evolution of American social policy and the racial politics shaping it. Rather than focusing on the disadvantages suffered by blacks in the American welfare state, Linda Faye Williams looks at the other side of the coin: the advantages enjoyed by whites. Her hope is that rendering the benefits of "white skin privilege" more visible will help undermine their acceptance as "normal" and motivate renewed efforts toward achieving a more just and equitable society. Williams begins her analysis by comparing two programs of federal provision in the mid-nineteenth century-the Freedmen's Bureau and the Civil War Veterans' Pension system. Already at this early stage of its development, she shows, the emerging welfare state effectively denied blacks the protections it provided white Americans and simultaneously stigmatized blacks as welfare "dependents." The linkages among race, moral worthiness, and social policy established then have persisted to the present. Her reexamination of key episodes in the later evolution of the American welfare state from the New Deal through the Clinton administration reveals how developments in social policy have advanced the privileges attached to "whiteness" by a variety of mechanisms: the ongoing reinterpretation of the American tradition of liberal individualism in racialized ways; the slow accretion of policy legacies; the construction...

When American history is divided into discrete eras, the New Deal stands, along with the Civil War, as one of those distinctive events that forever change the trajectory of the nation's development. The story of the New Deal provides a convenient tool of periodization and a means of interpreting U.S. history and the significance of contemporary political cleavages. Eisner's careful examination of the historical record, however, leads one to the conclusion that there was precious little "new" in the New Deal. If one wishes to find an event that was clearly transformative, the author argues, one must go back to World War I. From Warfare to Welfare State reveals that the federal government lagged far behind the private sector in institutional development in the early twentieth century. In order to cope with the crisis of war, government leaders opted to pursue a path of "compensatory state-building" by seeking out alliances with private-sector associations. But these associations pursued their own interests in a way that imposed severe constraints on the government's autonomy and effectiveness in dealing with the country's problems-a handicap that accounts for many of the shortcomings of government today.

Catherine E. Rymph Raising Government Children. A History of Foster Care and the American Welfare State

In the 1930s, buoyed by the potential of the New Deal, child welfare reformers hoped to formalize and modernize their methods, partly through professional casework but more importantly through the loving care of temporary, substitute families. Today, however, the foster care system is widely criticized for failing the children and families it is intended to help. How did a vision of dignified services become virtually synonymous with the breakup of poor families and a disparaged form of "welfare" that stigmatizes the women who provide it, the children who receive it, and their families? Tracing the evolution of the modern American foster care system from its inception in the 1930s through the 1970s, Catherine Rymph argues that deeply gendered, domestic ideals, implicit assumptions about the relative value of poor children, and the complex public/private nature of American welfare provision fueled the cultural resistance to funding maternal and parental care. What emerged was a system of public social provision that was actually subsidized by foster families themselves, most of whom were concentrated toward the socioeconomic lower half, much like the children they served. Analyzing the ideas, debates, and policies surrounding foster care and foster parents' relationship to public welfare, Rymph reveals the framework for the building of the foster care system and draws out its implications for today's child support networks.

Why does it cost nonprofits on average $20 to raise $100, while it costs companies only $4? Simply put: Nonprofits have no leverage. No one has to make a donation. And since most donors have no direct stake in the organizations they support, they make donations out of the goodness of their hearts. If donors feel like writing a check, they will. If they don't, they won't. The End of Fundraising turns fundraising on its head, teaching nonprofits how to stop begging for charity and start selling impact. For the first time, nonprofits have economic power. We live in a new era where consumers, businesses, investors, employees, and service providers attach real economic value to social outcomes. An era where yesterday's «feel good» issues—education, the environment, health care, the arts, and animal rights—now have direct economic consequences and opportunities. Nonprofits now have leverage. To use this leverage, nonprofits must learn how to «sell» their impact to a new set of stakeholders. Using his fifteen years of experience advising the world's leading nonprofits, foundations, and corporations, Jason Saul reveals the formula for how nonprofits transcend the paradigm of charitable fundraising and reach true financial sustainability. Specifically, this groundbreaking book offers nonprofit professionals a guide to Understand the role of social change in our economy Capture and communicate impact in simple, compelling terms Identify the new market stakeholders that value nonprofit outcomes Create powerful value propositions to increase leverage Improve the success of a nonprofit's pitches to funders The End of Fundraising includes the tools needed to effectively frame, market, and sell a nonprofit organization's impact, and contains step-by-step guidance for creating dynamic new opportunities with a variety of funders.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 2,0, University of Twente , 31 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In most European societies, it is women who are considered responsible for raising children and caring for dependent family members, whereas men's task is to cater for the family financially. On the one hand, this prevents mothers from participating actively in the labour market, while on the other hand, it gives fathers little time to spend with their children. Traditionally, national welfare states have regulated this kind of inequality in accordance with society's norms and values, by providing a framework of services (e.g. public childcare facilities), monetary transfers (child-rearing benefits), and leave regulations (parental leave), thus creating incentives and disincentives for mothers (and fathers) to work and/or to look after the children at home. National arrangements vary considerably across the different states, whether they be geographically and culturally close or remote, whether they belong to the same or to a different welfare state regime. A good example for such differences are child-care arrangements in Germany and France. Although neighbours and both conservative-corporatist welfare states, they have developed very different approaches in dealing with the problem of labour market participation of women with children. In the past 20 years, welfare s...

The commitment to "end welfare as we know it" shaped public policy in the 1990s. Analysts all seemed to agree that public welfare programs were a resounding failure. What should better public care look like?Democracy, Justice, and the Welfare State sets up a dialogue between work on the ethic of care and studies of public care in practice. White argues that care as it is currently institutionalized often both assumes and perpetuates dependency and so paternalistic relationships of authority. Better public care requires that such paternalistic practices be challenged. Care appropriate to a democratic context must itself be a democratic practice.

Under neoliberal capitalist globalization, the deepening of women's oppression and exploitation have been notorious. Indeed, women are facing poverty all over the world, including in industrialized capitalist countries. Women living in poverty and particularly poor single mothers have been targets of the counter neoliberal reform of the capitalist welfare state. This counter reform is a gendered, classist, and complex alteration that has assaulted the social responsibilities and budgets of the welfare state. In Ontario, Neoliberal policies reinforce women's unpaid caring responsibilities and intensify the surveillance and control exerted over poor Ontarian single mothers. This qualitative case study has explored critically the role of neoliberal social policy in Ontario child welfare. Through a feminist approach and using official documentary data, the research analyzes Ontario Kinship Care Policy. The study looks at the historical and social context in which the policy was formulated, depicts the main goals of the policy, and analyzes the policy's outcomes both, for the system and for women. Possible areas of future research on this policy are presented in the conclusions.

One would expect a welfare state such as Sweden to compare favorably with the United States regarding implementation of public policies and programs. Surprisingly, the author comes to quite different conclusions: in studying the treatment of battered, raped and sexually-harassed women in the two countries, she has found that, contrary to conventional expectation, the ability of the decentralized American state to innovate effectively has been consistently underestimated, whereas Sweden's ability to do the same has often been exaggerated.

It is natural that human beings are desirous of acquiring goods that make life habitable or in the case of going concerns, goods that keep the industrial wheel running; but, due to scarcity of funds, most desired goods are elusive; in order to ameliorate the worsening socioeconomic condition of the people and body corporate across the globe, hire purchase arose to enable the acquisition of goods that cannot be paid for immediately, in other words, rather than pay the full cost price for goods needed, hire purchase is the means by which payments are made by installments until the total cost price is paid and thereafter, the hirer may exercise the option to purchase the goods. Hire purchase may be conceptualized as a lever that creates opportunity for equitable ownership of goods when hirer is not financially able and it is of mutual benefit to the hirer and owner of goods; the hirer has immediate use of the goods, the owner, rather than have unsold stocks, benefit by receiving regular installments. This text is written to meet the need of students at universities, other tertiary institutions and professionals offering Law as well as aid the legal needs of parties in Hire Purchase.

Since the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 was enacted, policy makers, agency administrators, community activists, and academics from a broad range of disciplines have debated and researched the implications of welfare reform in the United States. Most of the attention, however, has focused on urban rather than rural America. Welfare Reform in Persistent Rural Poverty examines welfare participants who live in chronically poor rural areas of the United States where there are few job opportunities and poor systems of education, transportation, and child care.Kathleen Pickering and her colleagues look at welfare reform as it has been experienced in four rural and impoverished regions of the United States: American Indian reservations in South Dakota, the Rio Grande region, Appalachian Kentucky, and the Mississippi Delta. Throughout these areas the rhetoric of reform created expectations of new opportunities to find decent work and receive education and training. In fact, these expectations have largely gone unfulfilled as welfare reform has failed to penetrate poor areas where low-income families remain isolated from the economic and social mainstream of American society. Welfare Reform in Persistent Rural Poverty sheds welcome light on the opportunities and challenges that welfare reform has imposed on low-income families situated in disadvantaged areas. Combining both qualitative and quantitative research, it will be an excellent guide fo...

A.C. Pigou The Economics of Welfare

5852 руб.
In The Economics of Welfare, originally published in 1920, Pigou reconceptualized economics as a science of economic welfare, in the course of which he developed the first systematic theory of market failures. Employing Alfred Marshall's theoretical framework and the utilitarian logic of Henry Sidgwick, he argued that the Smithian 'system of natural liberty' can fail to maximise economic welfare in three crucial spheres. Economic transactions grounded in the free play of self-interest may achieve a suboptimal allocation of resources by producing spillovers; they may maldistribute the national income, damaging much of the population; and they may generate business cycles, causing unemployment as well as income and consumption instabilities. In his analysis of how to repair these failures, Pigou made an elaborate, carefully reasoned case that interventions in otherwise unfettered markets may be in order.This reissued classic includes a new introduction by Nahid Aslanbeigui and Guy Oakes, who offer fresh ideas on The Economics of Welfare as a treatise that cannot be reduced to a programmatic collection of taxes and subsidies designed to maximise economic welfare. They also spell out the implications of Pigou's thought for contemporary economics.

As today's interconnected world has caused a massive expansion in trading relationships across the world, businesses transact across not only physical boundaries, but also cultural and tradition-based boundaries. This "journey into the unknown" exposes businesses to new risks and weaknesses that can hardly be managed by the traditional mechanisms for creating and managing commercial relationships. It is within this light the proactive approach to contracting has emerged, as potential misunderstandings and disagreements have grown rapidly. As we know that the need and will for a paradigm shift is there, we need to overcome the barriers of traditional contracting, but in the quest of transformation we need tools and mechanisms that ensure a successful journey. It is in this context the foundation of this book emerged. Since the proactive approach to contracting took off, some kind of consensus has been created regarding the tools needed in order to fulfill the transformation from the traditional approach to the proactive approach to contracting. This book elaborate and evolve these tools.

Women play a vital and predominant role in the Modern World. The development of any nation’s civilization is held equally on the shoulders of both men and women. Woman is regarded as the ‘unsung heroine’, who without any glare of publicity contributes to the welfare and progress of the society. “Though women play a key role for the development of the society, they face many hardships for their ‘bread’ and cannot even dream of roses”. They work from ‘dawn to dusk’ but it is unfortunate that even the ignorant men have been enjoying superiority over women which they do not deserve. The task of women and their active participation in social and economic development of the country is indispensable. The subject of Women welfare has been a vital area of study. It is a dynamic subject for a changing society from time to time. The Women welfare programmes require continuous and sustained study. Therefore, it is a book worth reading for the people who are interested in the field of women welfare.

Elizabeth Ben-Ishai Fostering Autonomy. A Theory of Citizenship, the State, and Social Service Delivery

5502 руб.
In Fostering Autonomy, Elizabeth Ben-Ishai explores the role of the state in fostering autonomy in vulnerable citizens-such as people who are addicted to drugs, domestic violence survivors, welfare recipients, and undocumented immigrants-through social service delivery. Building on a feminist conception of "relational" autonomy, the book draws on empirical examples of service delivery to generate a rich theoretical account of the autonomy-fostering state.Ben-Ishai's analysis focuses on four case studies. The first two cases, on "New Paternalist" programs and welfare policies for immigrants, present examples of programs and policies that fail to foster autonomy. This is in part because they are premised upon flawed notions of the autonomous individual and its relationship to the state. The second two cases, on services for domestic violence survivors and harm-reduction services for people who use drugs, turn the preceding autonomy-fostering failures on their head, pointing to unique instances of services that effectively enable autonomy. These cases demonstrate the ways government services shape citizens' abilities to live autonomously-"to pursue their own ends or life plans."

In 1989 the Supreme Court ruled that the State of Wisconsin was not liable for the brutal beating of a young boy by his father, who had been investigated by the Department of Social Services. In DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services, Chief Justice William Rehnquist's majority opinion rejected the claim of the boy's mother that her son had been deprived of his constitutional "right to life." Taking the DeShaney case as her point of departure, Elizabeth Bussiere observes that the idea of a constitutional right to life was first rejected not by the conservative Rehnquist Court but by the liberal Warren Court twenty years earlier. She investigates why the Warren Court, despite its many rulings "entitling" the poor to constitutional protections, refused to identify welfare benefits (or subsistence) as a constitutional right.Although focused on the Warren Court, the book explores Western political thought from the seventeenth through late twentieth centuries, draws on American social history from the Age of Jackson through the civil rights era of the 1960s, and utilizes current analytic methods, particularly the "new institutionalism." Finding cultural arguments regarding the absence of constitutional welfare rights inadequate, she illuminates two long-standing traditions-natural law and maternalism-that tended to support the poor's subsistence needs. The key to the failure of constitutional welfare rights, Bussiere argues, l...

How to Change the World with a 501(c)(3) provides a simple yet comprehensive framework for starting and running a successful 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. This book is inspired by the author’s experience founding two nonprofits and working with existing nonprofit organizations over the past decade. 501(c)(3) status, which is granted by the IRS to qualified applicants, exempts eligible nonprofits from federal income tax requirements. In certain states, 501(c)(3) status also exempts nonprofits from state corporate income tax obligations. Tax-exempt status allows more of the money donated to worthy and charitable causes to end up supporting those causes directly, and therefore is highly coveted by nonprofits. Additionally, financial contributions made to a 501(c)(3) are deductible by donors for federal income tax purposes, making donating more attractive and lending increased credibility to the organization. The primary audience for this book is individuals who passionately believe in a cause and want to multiply their ability to effect change by utilizing a nonprofit organization. This book will provide you with the tools, confidence, and insight to not only start a 501(c)(3) organization, but also run it like a business in order to maximize its impact on the community.

The Democratic Developmental State. North-South Perspectives.

5652 руб.
The idea of a democratic developmental state forms part of the current development discourse advocated by international aid agencies, deliberated on by academics, and embraced by policy makers in many emerging economies in the global South. What is noticeable in this discourse is how little attention has been paid to a discussion of the essence of a democratic developmental state, and much of what passes for theory is little more than policy speak and political rhetoric.This volume fills a gap in the literature on the democratic developmental state. Analyzing the different approaches to the implementation of democratic developmental states in various countries in the South, it evaluates the extent to which these are merely replicating the central tenets of the East Asian model of the developmental state or if they are succeeding in their attempts to establish a new and more inclusive conceptualization of the state. In particular, the authors scrutinize to what degree the attempts to build a democratic developmental state may be distorted by the imperatives of neoliberalism.The volume broadens the understanding of the Nordic model of a democratic developmental state and shows how it represents an additional, and perhaps contending understanding of the developmental state derived from the East Asian experience.
