"Close Encounters of the Third Kind" Volunteering,Infrastructure and Governance  [PDF]
Jason L. Powell
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2011.14028
Abstract: This paper explores the relationship between voluntary sector and governance using England as a case study. One of the key issues in recent times is how voluntary organizations sustain themselves. Although the spate of studies have undoubtedly advanced the state of knowledge about voluntary organisations, we still know very little about the internal composition and operation of volunteer organisations and even less about the way in which internal factors interact within the external world. This research article assesses the factors such as governance and quality, leadership, workforce, performance, partnerships and finance and funding. These different critical success factors are part of the inter-locking infrastructure tools of voluntary organizations that keeps them sustained.
Ciência, religi?o e Ilustra??o: as academias de ensino dos dissentes racionalistas ingleses no século XVIII
Soares, Luiz Carlos;
Revista Brasileira de História , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-01882001000200010
Abstract: the academies of prostestant dissenters were the outstanding institutions for the teaching of new natural sciences in the eighteenth-century in the english society. as the prostestant dissenters were not allowed to enter in the english system of fundamental and university education, legally controlled by the anglicans, there was no other alternative to them than the establishment of their academies for further education in order to instruct their youth to the religious ministry, the university courses or the business life. the academies of warrington and manchester were the most distinguished amongst these educational institutions, being respectively established by the prebysterians (self-named the rational dissenters) and the unitarians, the heirs of prebysterian rationalism although distanced of their calvinist teological perspective.

England and Wales: Stable fertility and pronounced social status differences
Wendy Sigle-Rushton
Demographic Research , 2008,
Abstract: For nearly three decades, the total fertility rate in England and Wales has remained high relative to other European countries, and stable at about 1.7 births per woman. In this chapter, we examine trends in both period and cohort fertility throughout the twentieth century, and demonstrate some important differences across demographic and social groups in the timing and quantum of fertility. Breaking with a market-oriented and laissez-faire approach to work and family issues, the last 10 years have seen the introduction of new social and economic policies aimed at providing greater support to families with children. However, the effect of the changes is likely to be limited to families on the lower end of the income scale. Rather than facilitating work and parenthood, some policies create incentives for a traditional gendered division of labour. Fertility appears to have remained stable despite, rather than because of, government actions.
Pur bonne alliance et amiste faire : diplomacia e comércio entre Portugal e Inglaterra no final da idade
Tiago Viúla de Faria,Flávio Miranda
CEM : Cultura, Espa?o & Memória , 2010,
Abstract: Our aim is to understand correlations between diplomacy and trade in Anglo-Portuguese relations from the mid-fourteenth century to the first decades of the fifteenth century. This we achieve through a combined analysis of treaties, their context and personnel involved, against the perceived development of Portuguese mercantile activity in England. The first section sets out to demonstrate how varying political and economic interests were reflected on the making of treaties, while in the second section a case-study of the effects of diplomacy on trade is presented
A prática da psiquiatria forense na Inglaterra e no Brasil: uma breve compara??o
Abdalla-Filho, Elias;Engelhardt, Wolfram;
Revista Brasileira de Psiquiatria , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-44462003000400012
Abstract: the authors make a comparative analysis between the practice of forensic psychiatry in england and in brazil. the purpose is to stimulate the debare about the conduction of this psychiatric specialization in both countries. it is a study specifically addressed to the criminal area and its approach is carried out based on the legal, clinical, and ethical points of view. the observations made in england may be also applied to wales, but not to the united kingdom as a whole, since different legislation is adopted in scotland and northern ireland. it concludes that while in brazil there is a need for a closer and more integrated relationship between psychiatry and law, it is equally significant to clearly define the scope and the boundaries of each of these areas, as ignoring the boundaries between the two specialties could result in the risk of their relationship becoming confused, as appears to be the case in the english context.
Barriers and facilitators to integrating care: experiences from the English Integrated Care Pilots
Tom Ling,Laura Brereton,Annalijn Conklin,Jennifer Newbould
International Journal of Integrated Care , 2012,
Abstract: Background. In 2008, the English Department of Health appointed 16 'Integrated Care Pilots' which used a range of approaches to provide better integrated care. We report qualitative analyses from a three year multi-method evaluation to identify barriers and facilitators to successful integration of care. Theory and methods. Data were analysed from transcripts of 213 in-depth staff interviews, and from semi-structured questionnaires (the 'Living Document') completed by staff in pilot sites at six points over a two-year period. Emerging findings were therefore built from 'bottom up' and grounded in the data. However, we were then interested in how these findings compared and contrasted with more generic analyses. Therefore after our analyses were complete we then systematically compared and contrasted the findings with the analysis of barriers and facilitators to quality improvement identified in a systematic review by Kaplan et al (2010) and the analysis of more micro-level shapers of behaviour found in Normalisation Process Theory (May et al 2007). Neither of these approaches claims to be full blown theories but both claim to provide mid-range theoretical arguments which may be used to structure existing data and which can be undercut or reinforced by new data. Results and discussion. Many barriers and facilitators to integrating care are those of any large scale organisational change. These include issues relating to leadership, organisational culture, information technology, physician involvement, and availability of resources. However, activities which appear particularly important for delivering integrated care include personal relationships between leaders in different organisations, the scale of planned activities, governance and finance arrangements, support for staff in new roles, and organisational and staff stability. We illustrate our analyses with a 'routemap' which identifies questions that providers may wish to consider when planning interventions to improve the integration of care.
The Insurrection of the English Underclass
Takis Fotopoulos
International Journal of Inclusive Democracy , 2011,
Abstract: The spontaneous uprising of the British 'underclass' was, of course, easily crushed by the massive force of the state amassed against it, illustrating one of the main lessons of History once more: that spontaneous uprisings can never overturn a socio-economic system (as opposed to its political personnel), if they are not backed by an organised political movement with its own antisystemic project, its own vision of the future society and a transitional strategy for moving from here to there.However, it is important to assess the importance of this insurrection – which is neither the first (see e.g. the similar insurrections in France[1] and Greece[2] a couple of years ago) nor, of course, the last, as even a systemic magazine like Spiegel acknowledges[3] – and, in the process, to try to interpret its causes and effects. In fact, all these insurrections by what we may call the ‘underclass’, to my mind, represent the long overdue backlash of the main victims of neoliberal globalisation and particularly those who have not yet been integrated into it, despite the good efforts of the reformist Left, or what I call the degenerate “Left”.[4]But first, we need to clarify the meaning of ‘underclass’, as it is obviously not used here in the usual pejorative sense to imply the ‘poor’ or ‘lumpen’ (proletariat) – the meaning that we see so often in various analyses throughout the systemic mass media. Instead, we should take ‘underclass’ to mean the victims of neoliberal globalisation par excellence, i.e. the unemployed and the marginalised, those living close to subsistence level and particularly the youngsters with no future: in a word, the present-day sans culottes, who do not belong to any of the established social classes as they have not (yet) been integrated into the social system of the internationalised market economy and its political complement, representative ‘democracy’ – unlike the working class, for example, who have been integrated into it to various degrees. Therefore, the underclass are very dangerous to the elites, not because they could overthrow the system, but because they force the elites into taking inevitable counter-action to crush their frequent insurrections, thereby revealing the true nature of what passes for "democracy" today — a political system which ultimately relies on physical violence to reproduce the economic violence on which it is founded. Furthermore, the elites’ backlash could lead other social groups who are presently only partly integrated into the system (low-income, occasional or part-time employees, etc.) to take part in
The strategic importance of the English military bases in Cyprus
Soyalp Tam?elik
International Journal of Human Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Therefore, the primary goal of this research is to display Cyprus's political significance and the strategic merit of its military bases for the United Kingdom.While Englishmen have explained the strategic importance of the island, they have indicated that Cyprus has taken on a highly significant role within the rather complex region of the Middle East, the Caucasus, Southeast Europe and the Mediterranean. In this situation, in order to become more dominant either in the Eastern Mediterranean or in the Middle East, the English have been against the existence of an issue known as the Cyprus question. After all, it is for sure that stable peace in Cyprus which is directly related to issues such as the route of the oil pipelines, the Arab-Israeli peace process and the determination of Iraq's future, will suit the United Kingdom's interests the most. Therefore, it is necessary for stable peace to be maintained urgently in Cyprus.Actually, the United Kingdom's strategic interest in Cyprus could be evaluated from two angles. The first angle is to minimize or if possible, to eliminate the effectiveness and opportunities of powers which could prevent their national interests in this region. The second is to clearly take advantage of the island through the means of the dominant military bases.However, the existence of these military bases, established after the Second World War, has failed to be thoroughly discussed until now. Yet, as much as the existence of the Turkish troops on the island, the existence of the military bases is also a matter which should be brought to the agenda. But, by directing all the reactions received from world public opinion to the existence of the Turkish troops in the North, the English have prevented the discussion of the absolute domination of the English military bases on the island.Based on this reality, the research is composed of two main sections. The first section has dealt with and examined the geopolitical significance of Cyprus for the United Kingdom. In the second and final section, how the issue related to the English military bases in Cyprus have emerged and developed and its effects today have been evaluated.
Role of Nurses in Community Mental Health Centers: Example of England
Beyhan Bag
Psikiyatride Guncel Yaklasimlar , 2012,
Abstract: The goal of the community mental health centers, which constitute the core of community based mental health service model, is to register the patients who live in a certain geographical region and have serious mental disorder in the center, to observe them regularly and to bring them back to community by providing their rehabilitation and treatment. The practice of community based mental health, which English health service carries out in one hand for the psychiatry patients’ treatment and care, has many benefits, such as minimizing the sequence of going to hospital. The community mental health nurse, who works as an incidence manager, takes on the responsibility of treatment and care of the patient in the place where he/she lives, and the directly protective effect of this responsibility is an unquestionable fact. With this practice, the process of taking cure in hospital and the cost of treatment and care decrease. In our country, this sub-field of psychiatry is still in its incipient stage. Being familiar with the successful model practices in different countries may constitute a good model for the community mental health nursing practices which are on the first level in our country. For this purpose, the role of the nurses who work for the community mental health service in England is presented in this study.
