Care in Everyday Life
Author: Marian Barnes
Publisher: Policy Press
The essential idea of care in health and social policy has recently been swept aside as governments increasingly focus on freedom of choice in health and social services. In this wide-ranging book, Marian Barnes attempts to restore care as a fundamental value in private lives and public policy. Applying feminist ethics to topics such as well-being, social justice, and the ways we relate to one another and the places in which we live, she examines the public debate on care in social policy. Both accessible and broad, Care in Everyday Life reintroduces a much-needed humanitarian perspective on the policies and practices that affect so many people.

These songlines 'sing' into history the personal story of Action Learning and Research (ALAR) by an ALAR founder, Ortrun Zuber-Skerritt. Revealed through a collection of interviews conducted by scholars from six countries, these engaging, informative, intimate stories record her ALAR journey to document history and, more importantly, to help develop skills and innovation in workplace/community and lifelong learning for everyone, including the disadvantaged and poorest. Reviewers comments: This book is a must read for action researchers of all stripes and experience levels. Ortrun Zuber-Skerritt, a principal architect of ALAR who has pushed the boundaries of AR conceptually and methodologically, has now created a unique book built out of orchestrated interviews that provide us with much insight into who she is, why and how to learn from her, and invitation to collaborate in further developing our practice for the benefit of everyone. Davydd Greenwood, PhD, Goldwin Smith Professor of Anthropology, Cornell University, USA. --------- Interlinking interviews with personal and professional reflection make this book a welcome contribution, not only to ALAR but also to the wider development of personal narrative research and autoethnography. The methodology will inspire readers to be both creative and honest in their approach to their own studies. Morwenna Griffiths, PhD, Professor and Chair of Classroom Learning, School of Education, Edinburg University, UK --------- I'm excited by the PIP model (Preamble-Interview-Postscript) that Ortrun introduces to structure her ALAR story in this book. It's particularly useful in African countries for making public indigenous knowledge that is traditionally transferred by means of story telling. Ansu Erasmus, PhD, Professor and Senior Director, Higher Education Development and Services, Tshwane University of Technology, Pretoria, South Africa ---------- In this innovative self-ethnographic account, Ortrun shares the experiences that are sources of her wisdom in relation to ALAR. Those who yearn for more control of their work situations, their lives and their environment in general, will be empowered by the personal learning that her 'songlines' convey. Shirley Grundy, PhD, Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Education, University of Hong Kong. ----------

Police cooperation in the EU has been characterised by intergovernmental patterns of decision-making. With the Treaty of Lisbon (2009) it has been fully integrated in the EU as part of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ). What has changed since then, which problems persist? What is the practical impact of the new rules established by the Treaty of Lisbon? How does the European Parliament use its extended co-decision powers in this field? What is the new role of human rights and data protection? Contributions by scholars from different disciplines and by practitioners analyse continuity and change of police cooperation in the EU in a political, legal and practical perspective. Contributions by: Jan Philipp Albrecht (MEP), Karsten Behn, Ludo Block, Monica den Boer, Gertjan Boulet, Olivier Cahn, Cyrille Fijnaut, Laura Füger, Mario Gruschinske, Daniela Heid, Paul De Hert, Nathalie Hirschmann, Hans-Gerd Jaschke, Daniela Kietz, Wilhelm Knelangen, Michael Niemeier, Bettina Rauch-Schulz, Peter Schaar, Funda Tekin and Hartmut Aden
