Essay from the year 2008 in the subject South Asian Studies, South-Eastern Asian Studies, printed single-sided, grade: A-, LUISS University of Rome (LUISS University of Rome, Faculty of Social Science), 47 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The essay examines the engagement between civil society in Southeast Asia andASEAN in the ASEAN community building process. It argues that in spite of initial efforts inmutual accommodation, both sides have been divided from within, which slows theengagement and gives it more form than substance. The efforts by ASEAN so far will onlycreate a community of the governing elite, not a community of the people. Regionalcommunity building, just like nation-building, is very much a people-centered process. It isnot a simple top-down chain of command and control. If ASEAN wants to establish a realcommunity, it must change its modus operandi. It must be much more than an exclusive clubfor the governing elite by giving more space as well as power to civil society in its agendasettingand decision-making. A community is much more a cognitive than material construction; it is somethingthat has to be believed in, sensed, and nurtured by the people. In Southeast Asia, theAssociation of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is building an ASEAN Community, whichis its most far-reaching project. Yet is it possible for a regional organisation that has beenwidely criticised by civil society for being remote to and detached from the people toestablish a community of caring and sharing societies by 2015 as its statements indicate? Andif yes, how?Meanwhile, civil society has an important role to play in community building. Yetcivil society in Southeast Asia is weak and fragmented. It has been excluded from ASEAN sdecision-making process. Can civil society contribute to ASEAN community building? Andif yes, how?This essay tries to answer these questions by looking at the engagement between civilsociety in Southeast Asia and ASEAN in the ASEAN Community building process. It beginswith a summary of the ASEAN Community building process, which is followed by anexamination of the role of civil society in community building. The third section introducescivil society in Southeast Asia. And the fourth is about the engagement between civil societyand ASEAN prior to ASEAN community building. I divide this part into two periods: beforeand after the Asian financial crisis.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

COMMUNITY LITERACY JOURNAL 8.2 (Spring, 2014) | The journal understands "community literacy" as the domain for literacy work that exists outside of mainstream educational and work institutions. It can be found in programs devoted to adult education, early childhood education, reading initiatives, lifelong learning, workplace literacy, or work with marginalized populations, but it can also be found in more informal, ad hoc projects. For COMMUNITY LITERACY JOURNAL, literacy is defined as the realm where attention is paid not just to content or to knowledge but to the symbolic means by which it is represented and used. Thus, literacy makes reference not just to letters and to text but to other multimodal and technological representations as well. We publish work that contributes to the field's emerging methodologies and research agendas.

Project Report from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Near East, Near Orient, printed single-sided, grade: 1,3, Middle East Technical University, language: English, abstract: This work deals with the broad topic of Politcal Power beyond the State and shows with the particular example of the Fethullah Gülen movement in Turkey how a non-state actor takes political power beyond the nation-state and slowly but surely transforms the identity of the Turkish Republic.A motivation to work on Fethullah Gülen as a political power beyond the state is the fact that Gülen in a survey of the British magazine on Foreign Policy in 2008 surprisingly was voted to be the most public intellectual in the worldThis paper will try to evaluate how a single person could become that influential during the last decades that he is supposed to be one of the leading forces within the Turkish state at the beginning of the 21st century. What aims follows the person whose name is associated with a media empire, with business enterprises and especially a huge education network in Turkey and worldwide?While writing this paper the author assumes that the Fethullah Gülen movement of today is already a political power beyond the Turkish nation-state which influences the economy, media, politics and education sustainable in an immense radius according to its own interests. Therefore, the main focus of this work will be to take a brief look at the motivations, origins and goals of the movement in regard of its activity in the educational sphere. In summary, as a starting point for this paper and a general research question serves the demand: Is the Fethullah Gülen Movement just a force beyond the Turkish state, or meanwhile through its strong educational network even THE force beyond the Turkish Republic? As a matter of fact that this a term paper and not a thesis the author will concentrate especially on the movement s educational engagement while claiming that it can be seen as the key for the community-transforming network.After a brief introduction into the life of Fethullah Gülen, his main point of views and convictions will be examined. In a further step the educational network of the movement and its major fields of activity will be highlighted. Afterwards, the characteristics of the movement as a power beyond the state will be explained to finally come to a conclusion in Chapter Five.Regarding the literature the author concentrates mainly on works from M. Hakan Yavuz, who is one of the main researches on political Islam in Turkey and Islamic inspired movements like Fethullah Gülen.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,1, Mannheim University of Applied Sciences (Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen), language: English, abstract: Migration is not a temporary fashion. For thousands of years people have left theirnative country to build a new existence. But there are different reasons like economical,societal or political factors. Most people tried to find their self-determination, but therewere stampedes due to wars or natural catastrophes, too. (cf. Karl Kübel Stiftung 2006)Pierre Eliot Trudeau, the former Canadian prime minister, said that the power of acountry is not only about military or economy but also about liberality and openmindedness.But after the attack of the World Trade Centre in 2001 by Islamicterrorists, an antipathy against foreigners emerged in many countries. The fear ofdifferent cultures in the own country pushes the care about the national engagement andthe loyalty between the population. In industrial countries migrants are often shown as alower-level community which wants to profit from the better social system. But itshould be noted that in most countries the migration and integration policies do not playan important role. (cf. Heinrich Böll Stiftung 2006)But in a slow process the picture of migrants will be changed. More and more migrantscan be found in higher positions in economy or politics. For example Philipp Rösler hasVietnamese roots and is the leader of the German party FDP. Another very importantchange will take place in the CEO position of the Deutsche Bank AG. Anshu Jain withan Indian background will replace Josef Ackermann and so the most significant bank ofGermany will be led by a foreigner. This change causes a lifting of the community ofmigrants. Migrants do not only stress the societal system of industrial countries, nowthey want to replace natives in the higher society. (cf. Ljoma Mangold 2011)These problems show that the principle of multiculturalism in industrial countriesinvolves a high potential for conflicts. Some industrial countries try to find politicalsolutions to handle the migration problem and the problem of different cultures in onecountry. But it is not easy due to incompatibleness between the behaviour of differentcultures. Others are the ideas of man or social, right and financial perceptions of thenative country on the one hand and the foreign cultures on the other hand.

Ecology of Learning Earthscan

Inne 1

Your house is flooded by a rain-swollen river. What do you learn from this experience? Do you shrug your shoulders and call your insurer? Or do you choose to learn about climate change, switch to renewable energy and lobby politicians? This book is a groundbreaking examination of how learning in everyday environments - business, work, home, community life - is key to improving society and achieving sustainability. It is ideal for educators, teachers, corporate trainers and consultants working to integrate environmental education, sustainability and innovation in non-traditional learning situations. How can we understand and achieve sustainability? How can we re-school society towards sustainability? Throughout life we learn, we develop meanings and connections, and we act. This book explores the possibilities for developing a sustainable society through 'lifelong learning' - that is, learning that happens in everyday environments and activities as diverse as shopping, community, 'edutainment', information and communication technology, the internet, broadcasting, people's experience of place and space, green building, social networks and consumer culture. Drawing on a range of sociological, anthropological and educational studies as well as new research "The Ecology of Learning" provides a broad trans-disciplinary understanding of the topic. The coverage is impressive with an accessible but informed engagement with both theory and practice and a wide range of examples. The voices, stories and experiences of many people are used to illustrate the ways people may reshape our understanding of learning and sustainability.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

10 Great Curricula is a collection of stories written by educators who have come to understand curricula differently as a result of their engagement with a graduate course and its instructor. The book represents the best of what can be found in teaching and learning, in general, and in the quest for meaningful ways to understand curricula in particular. The co-authors of this volume on "10 Great Curricula" framed their inquiries into progressive, democratic curricula, at least initially, through Marsh and Willis' (2007) notions of planned, enacted, and lived curricula. These frames helped the writers think about how to engage a curriculum as it is developed, delivered, and lived by its participants, and for the inquirers to actually become participantinquirers in the curriculum at hand. The chapters depict the power, the possibility, and the transformational potential of "great" progressive curricula today by locating them in schools and in the community, by making them come alive to the reader, and by suggesting means through which the reader can adopt a more progressive, democratic stance to curriculum despite the seemingly overwhelming nature of the conservative, traditionalist, instrumentalist movements in curriculum, teaching, and assessment today. The book is intended for students of education, teaching, and curriculum, undergraduates, graduates, and practicing educational professionals, especially those looking for examples in the world in which progressive, democratic ideals are nurtured and practiced.

100 Multicultural Proverbs Corwin Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Proverbs are an important part of the multicultural experience and they are consistently intertwined with socio-cultural and political webs of the people. Proverbs depict and unveil generational continuity, wisdom, power, and humility. To a large measure, they provide deeper meanings and explications of complex situations, events, and daily activities. They portray a true picture of the originality and valuing of oral tradition to the multicultural perspective. In more ways than one, proverbs expose dialogue and discourse as a part of the vernacular of people and they are the icing on the cake in daily oral interactions of diverse communities in the United States and around the world. In 100 Multicultural Proverbs: Underlying Educational Principles for Today's Educators and Leaders, proverbs from different African, Asian, Native American, and Latino tribes, communities, and countries are presented. These proverbs have implications for collaboration, consultation, and cooperation. Everyone has a role in building his or her community.The influx of immigrant minorities into the fabric of the United States society makes it imperative for educators and leaders to change their ways of thinking, teaching, learning, and leading. Clearly, the paradigms and powers have shifted in our society - we can and must learn from each other. To a large extent, this book exposes different ways to solve problems - some ways are through serious thinking and some are through humor.

Tanganyika Under German Rule 1905 Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The history of Tanganyika from the Maji Maji rebellion of 1905 (the greatest African rebellion against early European rule) to the last years of German administration. It examines a colonial situation in depth, ranging from the processes of change in African societies to the decisions of policy-makers in Berlin. In the aftermath of rebellion an imaginative Governor, Freiherr von rechenberg, initiated a programme of African cash-crop agriculture. This programme was reversed by a settler community which successfully manipulated the German political system. Meanwhile, after their defeat in armed rebellion, Africans sought power through educational and economic advancement. Tanganyika in 1912 was poised for that struggle for control between European settler and educated African which has been a fundamental theme of the modern history of East and Central Africa. Dr Illiffe's book is one of the few available studies of German colonial administration. He has drawn on a wide range of sources, both in East Africa and Germany. Written in the light of current reappraisal of African history, the book gives valuable insight into African initiatives during the early years of European rule.
