Abstract

How did the Swiss organ donation crisis come about? Despite reforms and advertising campaigns, from the late '80s, Swiss transplant medicine began to lament an increasing mistrust in organ donation and falling donor numbers. Simon Hofmann throws light on the role of doctors, nurses, family members and donees, but also of the media, politicians and the pharmaceutical industry. In doing so, he draws out the relations between hospital practices, public debates, and fictitious narratives about organ smuggling. He tells a complex and contradictory story of modern biomedicine at the edge of life and death, which is shaped as much by economic calculations as by utopian hope and traumatic fears.

Abstract

In the next decades the working world will change fundamentally. What powers affect the labor market? What changes are to be expected? And what does that mean for those involved in labor politics? This conclusive report by the Commission "Work in the Future" – with members from the fields of science, businesses and unions as well as practitioners – presents a diagnosis of the current situation and provides a perspective of the future of work. Particularly, however, the commission offers food for thought on the question how society can master the fast changes so that work in the digital economy guarantees the participation in society and more than mere livelihood.

Abstract

The IG Metall has put the topic of working time on the agenda: for more self-determination for the employees. In this book, actors present the course and outcome of the 2018 collective bargaining round in the metalworking and electronics industries and take a look at key elements of trade union action. Justice, autonomy, solidarity and power are at the center. They see the collective bargaining round as a practical prelude to a future debate on the role of trade unions, participation and participation in a society in transition.
