The respectable face of troublemaking
Helen McCarthy

the largest voluntary organisations of the period, the LNU became a vehicle for the development and interplay of new dynamics evident in associational life following the franchise extensions of 1918 and 1928.22 As attention shifted away from questions of electoral reform and towards the character of the mass electorate now in existence, the League movement nourished a rich conversation about the rights and responsibilities of democratic citizenship within religious and educational circles, amongst women’s organisations and philanthropic bodies, and in all three of

Analysing oratory in Labour politics

. He argued that a greater sense of national identity would produce ‘a clearer understanding of the common core of rights and responsibilities that go with British citizenship’ and that these ‘will help build our sense of shared identity and social cohesion’ (Brown and Straw, 2008: 193). However this failed to resonate because his credibility and character were undermined by ideological infighting at the heart of New Labour (Heppell, 2008) and his premiership was soon overtaken by events in the form of the global financial crisis. In sum, Labour’s transformative

Romero’s ‘Dead’ sextet, both of which deploy the zombie as an exploration of the rights and responsibilities of humanity and the inherently oppressive nature of the neoliberal State. 11 In the UK, this was characterised by a belief in active government dedicated to reducing social

Making environmental security ‘critical’ in the Asia-Pacific

, and in social exclusion and the denial of rights where ‘human beings suffer in their dignity through not being granted the moral rights and responsibilities of a full legal person within their own community’ ( Honneth, 2001 : 49). Environmental harm arises in part through the costs to life and health associated with environmental degradation and unsustainable development. But it

access them. Social, legal and biological parenthood did not invariably coincide in the past. Different jurisdictions have various approaches to the ascription of parental rights and responsibilities. However, the default legal position is that a woman who gives birth to a child is that child’s mother and her husband is the father – regardless of whether she is the genetic mother or he the genetic father. Embedded in this view is the expectation that the two members of the married couple are the legal and social parents and also the biological parents of the child

Systemic crisis and democratic public ownership
Thomas M. Hanna

publicly owned enterprises (where, for instance, the public owns a small percentage of a company), a publicly owned fund at the appropriate scale could exercise ownership rights and responsibilities (and there could be a multitude of such funds nationally). Those funds could be managed by multi-stakeholder boards, have operational autonomy, and be subject to many of the same requirements as the publicly owned enterprise boards. Against the whirlwind Little has been said thus far about the mounting political, social, economic, and ecological crisis – a systemic crisis

2 From each according to their ability 2.1 Introduction: rights and responsibilities A traditional criticism of policy measures that transfer resources to the disadvantaged is that the recipients are effectively the beneficiaries of state-sponsored largesse, since they are in receipt of benefits that they have not personally earned and that are issued to them regardless of the productive contribution they have made. In short, the recipients of welfare benefits are given someone else’s rightfully earned money, for which they do nothing in return. This was a common
