Abstract

‘No one can serve two masters . . . You cannot serve God and Mammon.’ Jesus’ famous words, cited to different purposes by Miran Epstein and Adrian Walsh in&#xD;this volume, provide a starting point for this chapter’s constructive argument and&#xD;critical conversation with the chapters in this middle part. Epstein deploys Jesus’&#xD;words to deny the possibility of any constructive reconciliation between capitalism&#xD;and healthcare, contrasting Jesus’ saying with the infamous words of Christian conquistadores&#xD;and with what he claims is the inherently corrupting, master-slave ethic&#xD;of the Deuteronomic covenant. By contrast, Walsh cites Jesus to explain Judeo-&#xD;Christian cultural suspicions about money’s place in healthcare before delineating&#xD;the potentially, though not necessarily, corrosive effects of marketisation

Abstract

The heterologous or donogenous insemination is the artificial fertilization of an ovum for reproductive purposes with the sperm of an outside donor to save the affected couples a infertility. This method is long been offered and used by the modern reproductive medicine but, however raises a number of legal, human genetic and psychological issues that are not at sufficiently resolved in the circle of experts. The present volume addresses these questions and possible answers in an interdisciplinary discussion and explores solutions. The articles go back to a workshop, which was jointly organized in cooperation of the Centre for Medical Law and the Göttingen Institute of Human Genetics. The editors hope that the recommendations resulting from this will be able to provide important impetus and support to the leaders in this field, but also to legislation and case law.

Abstract

Das neue Gendiagnostikgesetz vom 31. Juli 2009 wirft im Spannungsfeld divergierender Perspektiven, insbesondere im Zwiegespräch von Humangenetik und Rechtswissenschaften bedeutsame Fragen u.a. über die Ausgestaltung der genetischen Beratung, die Aufgaben der neu geschaffenen Gendiagnostikkommission oder hinsichtlich der vorgeburtlichen genetischen Diagnostik auf. Zugleich stehen auch die klassischen arztrechtlichen Aspekte der ärztlichen Aufklärung und Einwilligung sowie solche aus dem Bereich des Datenschutzes im Mittelpunkt des Interesses. Dieses facettenreiche Spektrum an Fragestellungen war im November 2010 Gegenstand eines Göttinger Workshops zum Medizinrecht, gemeinsam veranstaltet vom Institut für Humangenetik (Medizinische Fakultät) und vom Zentrum für Medizinrecht (Juristische Fakultät). Die Beiträge und Ergebnisse dieser Fachtagung werden im vorliegenden Band der interessierten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht.

Abstract

Against the background of the necessity of (old) care - keyword: demographic change - and the changes in the area of child care, many questions arise regarding generational and gender arrangements. The authors examine the central questions with a view to fields of practice: All-day school, child care, care of the elderly - and do not spare the problem of the shadow economy: mainly women, often with a migration background, who work illegally in care in German households.

Abstract

Day care in Alberta has had a remarkably durable history as a controversial issue. Since the late 1950s, disputes over day care programs, policies, and funding have been a recurring feature of political life in the province. Alberta’s Day Care Controversy traces the development of day care policies and programs in Alberta, with particular emphasis on policy decisions and program initiatives that have provoked considerable debate and struggle among citizens. For most of Alberta’s first fifty years as a province, day care was treated as a private rather than a public issue. Beginning in the late 1950s, however, debates about day care began to appear regularly on the public record. Dr. Tom Langford brings to light the public controversies that occurred during the last four decades of the twentieth century and the first decade of the new millennium, placing contemporary issues in historical context and anticipating the elements of future policy struggles.

Abstract

Since the 1970s, highly educated families in Austria have employed Au-pairs for taking care of their children. Why have these families preferred Au-pairs to kindergartens with qualified teachers? Were Au-pairs just a flexible substitute or did they have additional functions in the family? Which social and political climate has favoured this private form of childcare?The empirical basis of the work was the documentation of one of the major Austrian Au-pair agencies for the period 1978 - 2000, particularly 298 self-descriptions from guest families and the agency´s annual reports. The material was supplemented by interviews with ten guest families and by interviews with two experts. Thus is possible to analyze the socio-demographic characteristics of guest-families in Vienna and its suburbs, their motivations for taking Au-pairs, and their expectations.The findings indicate that Au-pairs usually serve several roles within the families: for instance, one very important role is to "double" mothers in order to free their minds to continue their social and work life. The pair system is also discussed in view of its two historic threads: one is a long European "education abroad" tradition for rather upper class children. The other thread is a "work-migration" tradition for lower class childs that had to go to cities to work as domestic servants. Which of the two traditions dominates the Au-pair market depends on the economic situation of the countries from which the Au-pairs come. Consequently, the economic and political changes around 1989 in Eastern Europe have had major impacts on the characteristics of Au-pair jobs in Austria
