Social Ecology of Tea Gardens in India: Perspective of Global Warming LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Social ecology is basically a manifestation of social system funtion comprising of structural characteristics and functional disposition. Tea gardens in India are representing unique social-ecologial behaviour and it has been more conspicuous with the advent of global warming and climate change. This unique social ecology has been a subject to withdrawl of biodiversity, erosion of physical natural bases and relentless anthropogenic activities. The book is a rare academic cultivation in the area of ecological networking by statistically designing the spill and grid effect of intra and inter ecological performances.It is unique to observe that with the change in rainfall pattern, as perceived by different tea garden stakeholders,the pattern of livelihood generation and other economic activities pertaining to this social ecology have been affected.The general social science researches are mainly confined to analysing and estimating socio-economic variables and,on contrary,this book retains a well readable research document on combined effect of socio-economic interaction with the bio-physical counterpart of the same ecological setup.Thus the book is a great creation in Social Ecology.

Rapid global changes have resulted in vast changes in education. In small nation-states which do not have natural resources to depend on, the training of a skilled and diverse workforce for economic development is essential for their survival. In addition, there is pressure to keep up with global developments. This impacts educational changes in all educational institutions. Such educational changes have a deep impact on academics.Much pressure is placed on the teaching staff to make adjustments to their curriculum and teaching. Sometimes,they may resort to making superficial changes and they may not be able to adapt fast enough. Furthermore, we cannot assume the planned curriculum change will be translated directly into practice. Thus, there is a need to study teaching staff's perception and adaptations to educational change.

The Internet and Democracy in Global Perspective Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This volume provides an important update to our current understanding of politics and the internet in a variety of new contexts, both geographically and institutionally. The subject of e-democracy has morphed over the years from speculative and optimistic accounts of a future heightened direct citizen involvement in political decision-making and an increasingly withered state apparatus, to more prosaic investigations of party and governmental website content and micro level analyses of voters' online activities. Rather than levelling the communications and participation playing field, most studies concluded that existing patterns of bias and power distribution were being repeated online, with the one exception of a genuine change in the potential for protest and e-activism. Across all of these accounts, the question remains whether the internet is a levelling communication tool that elevates the profile of marginalised players in the political system, or whether it is a medium that simply reinforces existing power and participatory biases. While employing case studies from various global perspectives, this book investigates the role of digital media and competitive advantage, campaigns and the effect of social media, online communication as way of fomenting nonviolent revolutions and the undeniable and important role of the internet on democracy around the world.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Drawing on over thirty years of experience in community development practice, Eric Shragge offers a unique historical perspective on activism, linking various forms of local organizing to the broader goal of fundamental social change. This new edition places contemporary community organizing in a post-9/11 context and includes a discussion of national and international organizing efforts--in the Middle East, in the Occupy movement, in European resistance to austerity measures, and in recent student protests in Quebec. A new chapter-length case study covering Shragge's long-term involvement with the Immigrant Workers Centre in Montreal offers one of the few English-language discussions of community organizing in Quebec. Activism and Social Change is an excellent core or supplementary text in courses on social movements, community organizing, or community development.

Neo- Gandhism has led to Participatory Development in India post social movement led by Anna Hazare. GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: South Asia, grade: Merit, University of East London (School of Law and Social Sciences), course: NGO & International Development Management, language: English, abstract: The last decade has seen India emerging as one of the fastest growing economies in the face of a global economic meltdown. The year of 2010 saw Delhi host the Common Wealth Games, followed by the exposure of shoddy preparations, gross financial mismanagement and reports of rampant corruption in awarding lucrative contracts to dubious firms. The high and mighty became richer. This was followed by various other scams running into billions of worth of dollars of the taxpayers' money. The year of 2011 saw, Anna Hazare, a Gandhian social activist sit on a fast with few people supporting him in New Delhi demanding the formation of an independent ombudsman- the Jan Lokpal to investigate the corruption at high levels. The massive support to the protest from people in every major city, from every walk of life, in the country made the government sit up and take notice. The protest seemed to take the shape of a Gandhian mass movement with people joining the fast, wearing Gandhian white cap and determined to be non-violent. This paper set out to explore if this movement has resulted in any change in the attitudes and behavior of people resulting in participatory development. A questionnaire was drawn with four thematic statements inter-linking this movement and the effect it had on people's own attitudes towards participatory development. Twenty five respondents sent their views via electronic medium on issues of their own understanding of participatory development and the role gender within that context, their own stories and if they had played any role in the movement. The research analysis did not conclude a straight answer and was able to establish that participatory development does not exist in its entirety in India despite it being understood as the only way to holistic development. The reasons appeared to be more diverse and varied and were unable to indicate any changes in inner conscience vis-ŕ-vis personal lives as in Gandhian philosophy; making it imperative that a further and more extensive observational study may be needed to understand why participatory development still remains a theoretical concept at large.

Globalization, Discourse, Media: In a Critical Perspective Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego

Wydawnictwa naukowe i popularno-naukoweKomunikacja społeczna. Media. DziennikarstwoGlobalizacja

This volume deals with communicative, social and media-related aspects of discourses under globalization. In one way or another, all the contributions touch upon issues relating to new multilingualism and new multiculturalism, which are being propelled worldwide by politically and economically motivated processes of migration. The pivotal topics covered are: postmodern social identities (esp. national, transnational and consumer identities), linguistic and cultural variation and change under the influence of global English and new technologies, as well as the ideologization of public discourses and that of the media in particular. The chapters are united by their focus on in-depth critical interpretations of public (often political) discourses. While most of the contributions are couched in a Critical Discourse Analysis framework, room has been made for cognate interdisciplinary approaches to social communication. Alongside well grounded empirical studies, this volume features innovative theoretical reflections and proposals of how new approaches and methods for investigating social and linguistic phenomena might be employed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The bilingual format of this volume (English and German) affords the possibility to elucidate on language- and culture- based variation and on how these respective issues are academically researched and socially mediated.

Local Science Vs Global Science Berghahn Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

While science has achieved a remarkable understanding of nature, affording humans an astonishing technological capability, it has led, through Euro-American global domination, to the muting of other cultural views and values, even threatening their continued existence. There is a growing realization that the diversity of knowledge systems demand respect, some refer to them in a conservation idiom as alternative information banks. The scientific perspective is only one. We now have many examples of the soundness of local science and practices, some previously considered "primitive" and in need of change, but this book goes beyond demonstrating the soundness of local science and arguing for the incorporation of others' knowledge in development, to argue that we need to look quizzically at the foundations of science itself and further challenge its hegemony, not only over local communities in Africa, Asia, the Pacific or wherever, but also the global community. The issues are large and the challenges are exciting, as addressed in this book, in a range of ethnographic and institutional contexts. Paul Sillitoe is Professor of Anthropology, Durham University. His research interests focus on natural resources management, appropriate technology, and development. He specialises in social and environmental change, sustainable livelihoods, human ecology and ethno-science. He has long-standing interests in the Pacific, and more recently in South Asia. He seeks to further the incorporation of local knowledge in development, having experience with several international development agencies.

Playing for Change - performing for money and for social justice - introduces a critical pedagogy of arts-based community learning and development (A-CLD), a new discipline wherein artists learn to become educators, social workers, and community economic development agents. Challenging the assumption that acculturation into a ruling ideology of state development is necessary, this book presents a version of CLD that locates development in the production of subjectivities. The author argues that A-CLD is as concerned with the autonomous collective and the individual as it is with establishing community infrastructure. As a result, a radical new theory is proposed to explain aesthetics within arts movements, beginning not by normalizing music cultures within global capitalism, but by identifying the creation of experimental assemblages as locations of cultural resistance. This book offers a new vocabulary of cultural production to provide a critical language for a theory of anti-capitalist subjectivity and for a new type of cultural worker involved with A-CLD. Drawing from a four-year study of thirteen music festivals, Playing for Change forwards A-CLD as a locally situated, joyful, and creative resistance to the globalizing forces of neoliberalism.

'This fifth Global Civil Society Yearbook continues the intellectual shaping of an emerging global civil society. As the Global Call for Action on Poverty, G-Cap, makes its voice heard under the whiteband symbol, this analysis of current issues of migration, climate change and UN reform, with a focus on gender and social movements, provides a timely intellectual resource to strengthen shared commitments' - Mary Robinson 'These annual volumes have themselves become an occasion for enacting global civil society: each Yearbook is a project that involves hundreds of people around the world in various ways... and they often fight it out around divergent understandings of critical issues. This volume enters the extreme zones we face today - the growing injustices which increasingly are only addressed by global civil society actors, but also the powerful innovations brought about by new technologies that can construct whole new global spaces for global civil society' - Saskia Sassen 'It is increasingly difficult to recall memorable analyses of international social movements before GCS. But after half a decade each annual issue is not only a magnum opus but is also definitive, distinctive & comparative. The study of global civil society can never be the same!' - Timothy M Shaw, Professor of Commonwealth Governance & Development & Director, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London The annual Global Civil Society Yearbooks provide an indispensable guide to global civil society or civic participation and action around the world. Each yearbook includes commissioned contributions from leading commentators across the social sciences on the latest issues and developments. Each yearbook also explores and presents the latest approaches to measuring and analyzing global civil society and provides a chronology of key global civil society events in the year. The 2005/6 Yearbook explores the role of gender in global civil society and investigates the core issues of labour migration, climate change and UN reform. In part three, contributions consider the impact of social forums and wireless technology, as well as reviewing the discussion of networks from the 2004/5 Yearbook. Illustrated throughout with summaries, maps, figures, tables and photographs and encompassing regular features such as updates on previous editions and the annual data reports, the Global Civil Society Yearbook remains the standard work on all aspects of contemporary global civil society for activists, practitioners, students and academics alike. It is essential reading for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the key actors, forms and manifestations of global civil society around the world today.
