Choosing a Fulbright scholar
Alice Garner and Diane Kirkby

49 3 ‘Bright scientific moles’ v. ‘goodwill ambassador extroverts’: Choosing a Fulbright scholar A Fulbright scholar who came to Australia in the early 1960s now says ‘who knew how important it would be for me, a young eager gal from nyc’, to have this experience. ‘I was open to learning and Australia was a perfect learning environment. Right time/​right place to be tested, one might say.’1 She embraced the social and cultural environment:  drinking with labour movement leaders at the local pub, listening to folk music and jazz, hearing feminist Germaine Greer

She highlights that the risks of speaking out are compounded by racial hierarchies in the sector which mean some women are less likely to be believed. The recent investigative reporting by The New Humanitarian and the Thomson Reuters Foundation on the sexual abuse experienced by women in the Democratic Republic of Congo during the humanitarian response to the Ebola crisis has yet again illustrated

concerned (or not) it is about earning its goodwill. And it will moderate its brutality according to the importance it attaches to its international image. For example, the US Army has developed software that its officers can use to predict – based on a variety of parameters (population density, time of day, type of buildings, etc.) – the collateral damage from bombing urban areas. The objective is to avoid causing more than twenty-nine civilian deaths, because, according to

The Aid Industry and the ‘Me Too’ Movement
Charlotte Lydia Riley

(characterised by many participants as #AidToo), with a focus on British organisations. I argue that the aid industry exists in a historical, social and political space that is particularly volatile when it comes to sexual abuse, harassment and assault. The power hierarchies of the industry make it difficult to call out this abuse and easy to cover it up – powerful men are protected by their image as humanitarian saviours and enabled by organisations that rely on public goodwill for

Humanitarianism in a Post-Liberal World Order
Stephen Hopgood

one really knows whether the rules will be enforced anymore (to the extent that they were ever really enforced). This means states at best have to hedge their bets (trying to retain the goodwill of both China and the US) and at worst can simply flout those rules with impunity. It is far too early to talk about a renegotiated set of rules, but it is clear that the result of such a new dispensation – the forging of a set of arrangements that both sides can live with and benefit from – will by definition be further from the preferences of the

Europeans, Muslim Immigrants and the onus of European–Jewish Histories
Author: Amikam Nachmani

Relations between Europe and its Muslim minorities constitute an extensive focus for discussion both within and beyond the Continent. This book reports on the years mainly between 2005 and 2015 and focuses on the exploitation of recent European history when describing relations and the prospects for the nominally 'Christian' majority and Muslim minority. The discourse often references the Jews of Europe as a guiding precedent. The manifold references to the annals of the Jews during the 1930s, the Second World War and the Holocaust, used by both the Muslim minorities and the European 'white' (sic) majority presents an astonishing and instructive perspective. When researching Europe and its Muslim minorities, one is astonished by the alleged discrimination that the topic produces, in particular the expressions embodied in Islamophobia, Europhobia and anti-Semitism. The book focuses on the exemplary European realities surrounding the 'triangular' interactions and relations between the Europeans, Muslims and Jews. Pork soup, also known as 'identity soup', has been used as a protest in France and Belgium against multicultural life in Europe and against the Muslim migrants who allegedly enjoyed government benefits. If the majority on all sides of the triangle were to unite and marginalize the extreme points of the triangle, not by force but by goodwill, reason and patience, then in time the triangle would slowly but surely resolve itself into a circle. The Jews, Christians, Muslims and non-believers of Europe have before them a challenge.

Sub-Saharan Africa's first mobile phone operation was launched by Telecel in 1986 in what was then called Zaire (now DRC). Zaire was run by Mobutu Sese Seko as a country for which the word ‘kleptocracy’ was invented. Because Telecel was so far ahead of its time, the business was very much cast in the ‘old Africa’ mould: it needed to ‘grease the wheels’ with key politicians and became heavily dependent on their goodwill to keep operating. Its business model was one of selling scarcity expensively to elite customers. Before

Unsettled identities, unstable monuments

-tribal warfare. However, by 1840 Ngati Whatua, the major tribe since the mid-eighteenth century, were returning, and Maori from other tribes, particularly from the Waikato to the south, also were settling there. Ngati Whatua invited Governor Hobson, the first governor of the colony, to make Auckland his capital for a complex of reasons – their own security and greater ease of access to European technology and economic-social advantages among them. The first European settlers in Auckland in the 1840s-50s needed Maori support and goodwill

integration between broadcasting companies and football clubs; and third, the collectivity of football leagues and the sale of broadcasting rights. The next section deals with issues of corporate governance and argues that fan equity should be recognised as ‘goodwill’ in clubs’ accounts and that supportershareholder trusts should be formed to solve the problem of misaligned incentives and the associated principal–agent problems between supporter shareholders and commercial investors. The third section deals with issues of vertical integration between football clubs and

The new Irish multicultural fiction
Amanda Tucker

and cultural phenomenon. I want to be careful to take into account all Irish writers – in other words, both those born in the country and those who arrived later – so that we can move beyond the legitimised readings of Irish multiculturalism to see the view from the back of the bus. The first section examines stories by Roddy Doyle and Claire Keegan that present multiculturalism as an obstacle that can be overcome by the goodwill of Irish people. In the second section, I turn to Emma Donoghue and Cauvery Madhavan, who depict Irish multiculturalism as a complicated
