Abstract

This widely researched study demonstrates convincingly that neither grandiose promises nor nightmare scenarios have much to do with actual care practices employing telecare. Combining detailed ethnographic studies of nurses and patients involved in telecare with a broad theoretical frameworky from various disciplines, the author concludes that these practices leads to more rather than less intense caring relations, resulting from a spectacular raise in the frequency of contacts between nurses and patients. Patients are much taken with this, not because they feel they are finally able to manage themselves, but because they can ‘leave things to the experts’. The patients find that caring is something that is best done for others. The book frames urgent questions about the future of telecare and the ways in which innovative care practices can be built on facts rather than hopes, hypes or nightmares.

Abstract

State regulation of labour migration is confronted with a double paradox. First, while markets require a policy of open borders to fulfill demands for migrant workers, the boundaries of citizenship impose some degree of closure to the outside. Second, while the exclusivity of citizenship requires closed membership, civil and human rights undermine the state's capacity to exclude foreigners once they are in the country. By considering how Malaysia and Spain have responded to the demand for foreign labour, this book analyses what may be identified as the trilemma between markets, citizenship and rights. For though their markets are similar, the two countries have different approaches to citizenship and rights. We must thus ask: how do such divergences affect state responses to market demands and how, in turn, do state regulations impact labour migration flows? And what does this mean for contemporary migration overall?

Abstract

Ville en perpétuel mouvement, Paris n'a cessé de changer de superficie. C'est au cours de la première moitié du xixe siècle, avec la construction des fortifications, que se dessinent ses limites actuelles. Pendant une vingtaine d'années, des territoires « suburbains » compris entre le mur des Fermiers généraux et le nouveau mur entourent la capitale. Leur annexion, à partir du 1er janvier 1860, permet l'émergence d'un Paris agrandi, intégré et, pour partie, encore en devenir. La Troisième rép...

Abstract

Physical safety is a core task of government. It is neither surprising nor unreasonable for government to be held accountable for hazardous substances, for food safety, for flood protection, for the spread of infectious diseases, or for the risks involved in new technologies. In 2011 the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations asked the Scientific Council for Government Policy (wrr) to investigate the scope for the development of a generic risk policy in relation to physical safety. Do citizens and businesses take sufficient responsibility for physical safety? Could the government assume a smaller role, and what part could the business community play in this? In this report the WRR argues that in order to answer these questions a distinction needs to be made between incidents, damage, risk and uncertainty. In addition, the wrr recommends that the thinking about responsibility for safety should not be placed in the perspective of a failing government, but that the central focus should be on the ambition of good governance. Finally, the wrr suggests that thinking about safety from the perspective of damage offers a useful framework for thinking through and reassessing the distribution of responsibilities. Responsibility for preventing, limiting and dealing with damage can only be assigned in advance, not retrospectively.

Abstract

Envisager la mesure des performances sur le registre impératif de la métrologie, comme c'est de plus en plus le cas dans les économies contemporaines, n'a pas uniquement un effet « réducteur ». En opérant par les nombres, ce sont les formes même de la prescription politique et de la vie en société qui sont transformées. Ignorer les formes pluralistes de l'évaluation (notamment de l'évaluation des politiques publiques), revient à faire disparaitre des registres de l'efficacité ce qui faisait v...

Abstract

Depuis une vingtaine d'années, la grâce a pris une place de choix dans le paysage de l'histoire de la justice à la fin du Moyen Âge et aux débuts de l'époque moderne. Tirant parti de sources d'une grande richesse, les historiens ont montré que la clémence est le complément indispensable de la sévérité dans l'exercice de la justice du XIIIe au XVIIe siècle. Ils ont ainsi nuancé l'image d'une justice médiévale expéditive et sanguinaire. Mieux, ils ont montré que si l'intransigeance des juges es...

Abstract

This is the first time that indigenous Papuan administrators share with an international public their experiences governing their country. These administrators were the brokers of development. After graduating from the School for Indigenous Administrators (OSIBA) they served in the Dutch administration until 1962. The period 1962-1969 stands out as turbulent and dangerous, and for many curtailed their professional careers. These administrators’ having been in active service until their retirement in the early 1990s allows for a complete recounting of political and administrative transformations under the Indonesian governance of Irian Jaya/Papua. This book brings together 17 oral histories of the everyday life of Papuan civil servants, including their relationships with superiors and colleagues, the murder of a Dutch administrator, their translation of ‘development’ to the Papuan people, the organization of their first democratic institutions, and the actual political and economic conditions leading up to the so-called Act of Free Choice. Finally, they share their experiences in the UNTEA and Indonesian government organization. Leontine Visser is Professor of Development Anthropology at Wageningen University. Her research focuses on governance and natural resources management in eastern Indonesia.

Abstract

El presente libro explora la historia de las guarangas —organizaciones sociopolícas fundamentales del mundo andino— y sus líderes, los caciques de guaranga, en el temprano siglo colonial en Huaylas. Estas estructuras políticas, intermedias entre los grandes señoríos/confederaciones y las pachacas o ayllus, constituyeron la base de cualquier organizacíon política y administrativa, tanto en la época preinca como en la inca y en la hispana. Una agregación de guarangas conformaba los señoríos, re...
