The word ‘impact’ is a real buzz word in academic fields, to the extent that we questioned whether it was risky to title a chapter ‘impact’. The danger with popular terminology is that as swiftly as it comes into fashion, so too can it be disowned, but it is important to recognise that many of the issues bound up in ‘impact’ are not new to research communication. What does impact mean? If we start simply, the Oxford English Dictionary defines impact as ‘the effective action of one thing or person upon another; the effect of such action; influence

Research dissemination and impact Helen Brooks and Penny Bee Chapter overview Research activity does not finish when data analysis is complete. Once research findings are available, researchers still have obligations to fulfil. These obligations include sharing the findings with different audiences and ensuring maximum impact from the study. A Research Handbook for Patient and Public Involvement Researchers Chapter 10: The process of sharing research learning with others can be an enjoyable but challenging one. Often it is referred to as dissemination, but

  111 7 The impact of television Television brought with it a new brand of vigorous, questioning journalism which required politicians and even clerics to explain themselves before the cameras. The new regime was almost as traumatic for print journalists as it was for the public figures who had to face the hostile environment of the TV studio.1 — Michael O’Toole on the arrival of television In the early 1960s, the country was at what one author described as ‘the threshold of a delayed peaceful, social revolution’.2 In 1959, Seán Lemass succeeded Éamon de

2 The impact of industrialisation The political crisis that led up to the 1832 Electoral Reform Act is seen as a near-bloodless revolution that levered the landed elites from power in favour of urban merchants and industrialists, and, in the context of local government, led to the 1834 Poor Law Reform and the 1835 Municipal Corporations Acts that began the modernisation of the system.1 While the 1832 crisis precipitated these major reforms, they were not a radical break with the past. Poor Law unions, improvement commissions and Peel’s ideas on police and

Most shipyards in this period gave a high priority to flexibility in production, and the absence of standardisation was accompanied by a continued preference for manual labour rather than heavy investment in machinery. Most shipyards also found

However, although the engineers’ union did suffer humiliating defeats at the hands of the employers’ association after the famous lock-out in 1897, and again in 1922, the implications of these events for craft skills in the industry have usually been misunderstood. Despite

. Next, the paper gives an overview of the available data on humanitarian need. The research then examines the impacts of sanctions on aid efforts, drawing from interviews with humanitarian practitioners and others with in-depth knowledge of aid delivery in the DPRK. There are four core areas of impact: the burden of exemptions processes, changing relationships with sanctioning and/or implementing governments, reluctance of third parties to engage with humanitarians active in the DPRK, and threats to long-standing relationships and collaborations with North Korean

7 THE SOCIAL IMPACT OF PROTESTANT EVANGELICALISM In many parts of the early eighteenth century Highlands the established presbyterian church of Scotland had limited impact. Areas of catholic loyalty existed in the islands of Barra and South Uist and in the western mainland districts of Arisaig, Moidart and Morar and indeed, in the early 1700s, the presbyterians thought that popery was intent on expanding from these districts into other enclaves. In many other parts, episcopalianism was dominant and even, although subjected to persecution by both church and state

This chapter follows the previous discussion of public evaluations of anti-terrorism powers by examining the impact thereof on citizens and citizenship more specifically. Two main findings from our research are discussed. First, that anti-terrorism powers have impacted – variably – on four key aspects of citizenship: rights, participation, identity and duties. As
