from 1875 (in the LMS), that the missionary family was the primary agent of mission activity, and during which debates about its role, rights and responsibilities were thrashed out and defined. Many of these formal debates on the role and existence of the missionary family were played out between London and the Pacific context. This was not only because the South Seas Mission (SSM) was the first mission of the LMS, but because many of the most pressing ‘dangers’ facing missionary families (sexual temptation, missionary

village, a role that was usually a male preserve. In contemporary social thought, as well as in popular thinking at the time, hierarchical relations were still coloured by medieval feudal concepts, understood in terms of mutual, polar rights and responsibilities.25 Hierarchical superiority came in exchange for presumed physical, mental and spiritual protection.

Whether that is an acceptable proposition in a multicultural society is debatable. We must also note that there is recognition among the policy-makers that a shared future, which I will call the basis of citizenship, can only be built on the basis of key principles including upholding ‘rights and responsibilities [and] visible social justice.’17 These issues loom large in our discussion

workers’ rights and responsibilities was compatible with those features of the new liberalism that emphasised non-sectionalism and workers’ participation (Freeden, 1978: 150–8; 1986: 45–77). The fourth, ‘a rejection of competitive antagonism and an ideal of fraternity and co-operation’, was conditionally acceptable to social liberals, as long as it pertained to the sharper end of competition and did not rule out private initiatives. The fifth, a protest against capitalist inefficiencies (notably not against capitalism in toto), and in particular mass unemployment, was

in labour or administrative law in order to ensure a merit-based and impartial civil service (Wise, 1996). This has often entailed tightly regulated careeradvancement and payment structures that have provided little room for local managerial discretion. The rise of NPM and new HRM practices has put the legal position of civil servants under pressure in a number of European countries over the last two decades or so. Accordingly, many countries have seen the elimination of special civil-service rights and responsibilities. In Europe, these include Denmark, Italy, the

The rights of one to the use of the labour, property, or body of the other, along with certain responsibilities towards him or her, were granted to some definite extent in all these cases. Those rights and responsibilities were

these judges, we liked the system as it was before. We were very involved with teaching English in a lot of cases, helping [immigrants] with their questions, their rights and responsibilities, all of this. We were there for them, at every session, and often we would take them aside to make sure that they knew things. Well that’s all at an end. The judges
