Abstract

Money makes the world go round - corruption The book presents the state of the art in studying the causes of corruption from a comparative perspective. Leading scholars in the field of corruption analysis shed light on the issue of corruption from different theoretical perspectives. Understanding how different theories define, conceptualize, and eventually deduce policy recommendations will amplify our understanding of the complexity of this social phenomenon and illustrate the spectrum of possibilities to deal with it analytically as well as practically.

Abstract

What relevance does gender have as a structuring and structured characteristic within the present circumstances? The authors - dissatisfied with the scientific state of the art - animate this discussion and lead it into new regions of thought. The concept of structure refers to social relations and institutions and focuses on inequalities, always in relation to social and institutional (gender) relations. To this end, the concept of the subject refers to actions and thus focuses more on individuals. The essential question here is: What relevance does gender have as a structuring and structured characteristic within current social conditions, structures and norms? In addition to theoretical contributions to already established subject- and structure-theoretical considerations, other authors concentrate on research-practical turns of the theoretical concepts. This volume aims to capture a dialectical interweaving of individual and social structuring processes in relation to gender.

Abstract

The volume shows how the expertise of women's and gender studies can enrich the debate on inclusion, and analyses how debates on inclusion and gender are interwoven. How can a claim to participation based on a broad understanding of inclusion be spelled out in terms of gender theory? What perspectives do women's and gender studies offer on the problems of exclusion processes in the medium of democratic promises of inclusion? How are the categories of gender and disability intertwined? How can a critical position on the programmatic debate on inclusion be formulated? The 12th Yearbook presents empirical and theoretical contributions to the relationship between approaches to inclusion and gender theory.

Abstract

This book traces a scientific biography and thus reflects the development of gender-sensitive political science: its origins in Critical Theory with its visible connection to its paradigms, political science's preoccupation with work as the central 'crux' of gender-specific theory and politics, the discussion of political socialization as an obstacle and simultaneous starting point for women-specific emancipation, and finally globalization in its significance as an opportunity and danger for a gender-equitable democracy.This is why, for Christine Kulke, this commemorative volume also presents central themes of gender-specific political science: a commemorative volume and a kaleidoscope worth reading.

Abstract

In this volume, connections between education, power and economy are discussed and problematized from a gender-theoretical perspective. In view of the observed change of systems in politics, science, culture and the social sphere, this thematic field is discussed in various contributions from new theoretical perspectives. The volume contains contributions on the philosophy of education as well as historical and sociological studies that systematically examine one or more facets of these interrelationships from a gender-theoretical perspective.

Abstract

How do professionals in open youth work deal with violence among young people? On the basis of an ethnographic study based on Grounded Theory, the author points out different processing strategies. The results show that professionals primarily interpret and deal with violence as a risk. It becomes clear that the action strategies of the social workers refer to approaches of sanctioning pedagogy on the one hand and youth work as education on the other. The ethnographic study in the style of Grounded Theory with a professional theoretical perspective was conducted in five different youth clubs over a period of one and a half years. Although violence between young people is relatively rare, it is omnipresent in the thinking of professional forces as a scenario that could develop. The presentation of typical situations from youth clubs shows that they constantly act in the sense of violence prevention close to everyday life and try to prevent a violent development through targeted action strategies. Within this framework, it becomes clear that two patterns of professional problem construction are central - on the one hand, following the sanctioning pedagogy, on the other hand, an understanding of youth work as education. Against this background, the interpretation and action strategies of skilled workers were discussed.

Abstract

Historical-materialistic critique of common explanations of the social relationship to nature in capitalism brings to light idealistic, culturalistic and politicistic short-cuts. A critical theory of social nature relations based on Marx's major work Das Kapital shows that the laws of capitalist society necessarily lead to systematic destruction of nature. The capitalist mode of production is incompatible with sustainable development.

Abstract

The author analyses practices and debates in feminist activism in Vienna with regards to issues of migration and ethnicisation, racism and anti-racism. Taking into account developments from the 1980s to the 2010s the book uncovers how white feminist activists (de-)construct powerful ethnicized differences in their ‚doings‘ and ‚sayings‘. It also draws critical attention to the ways in which white activists constructed their own political identities through engagements with ‚other‘ women.
