Abstract: Resumen: Las situaciones de crisis son poco propicias para sostener reivindicaciones igualitaristas, tanto por el lado de la desinversión en medidas reparadoras de la desigualdad como por el de la presión de sectores refractarios a la emancipación. Se revelan así algunos déficits sustanciales en la producción reciente de ciencia social y de políticas públicas desde la perspectiva del género, incapaces aún de aportar una cultura antidiscriminatoria consistente. Aquí se plantea una reflexión sobre el género que pueda basar nuevos discursos y nuevas políticas reorientadas hacia la igualdad, subrayándose la importancia de los movimientos sociales y de las alianzas horizontales en su seno. Abstract: Crisis situations are hardly conducive to sustain egalitarian claims, both by the hand of the divestiture of remedial measures of inequality and by the pressure of sectors opposed to emancipation. Well reveal some substantial deficits in the recent production of social science and public policy from the perspective of gender, wich have not provided a consistent anti-discriminatory culture. Here is a reflection on gender which to base new discourses and new policies reoriented towards equality, stressing the importance of social movements and horizontal alliances within it.

Abstract: the present work analyzes the effects of the 2001-3 crisis in argentina - considered as a result of a set "accumulated insufficiencies" that got entangled in between economy and politics - in the country's sanitation policy. differently from what was occurring in other sectors, the expression of the crisis in the health sector was more linked to the demands of people responsible for health services management than to collective actions. both the peculiarity of being an agenda "mediatized" by distinct governmental actors and the health sector management demand focusing on the intergovernmental relations plot resulting from argentina's institutional organization. the present work aims at understanding how the challenge of rebuilding state legitimacy during the crisis affected the governmental actors position within the institutional framework where argentina's sanitation issues are dealt with, beginning with the reconstruction of dynamic and logical processes that coexisted in one intergovernmental coordination area: the federal health council (cofesa, in spanish). from such perspective and focusing the analysis on a paradigmatic example such as financing of drugs, cofesa became a touchstone of such processes, where distinct logics of the health sector, some general and some particular, coexist.

International Journal of Business and Management , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v5n9p10
Abstract: The article explores the impact of manufacturer brand innovation on retailer brands in grocery product categories, drawing on literature from category management, power and product innovation. It is argued that the consumer packaged goods literature has largely portrayed manufacturer brand innovation in relation to retailer brands as a competitive tool that is employed against the retailer brands. The alternative view of manufacturer brand innovation as an enhancer of retailer brands has not been fully addressed academically. The article further argues that aspects of manufacturer brand innovation that enhance retailer brands have relevance for the determination of strategic policies that govern the coexistence of the two types of brands in supermarket categories. The paper offers a fresh perspective in explaining the coexistence of manufacturer brands and retailer brands in grocery retail categories. Aspects of manufacturer brand innovation that positively impact on the welfare of retailer brands play a strategic role.
