Teachers and Teacher Unions in a Globalised World asks a series of pressing questions of teacher educators, teachers and teacher unions worldwide in this era of global capitalism. As governments around the world support austerity politics in the face of financial meltdowns, social inequalities, terrorist threats, climate catastrophe, wars and mass migrations, the book questions whether practitioners in teaching and teacher education are succumbing to pressures to dismantle their nation-state systems of education. The authors present a clearly argued case in Ireland for teachers and teacher educators organising to realise their moral and social responsibilities of free and fair schooling for all when it is most needed, as well as insisting on policy debates about a free publicly funded school system. At a time when teachers are feeling overwhelmed with workload and frustrated by the visible turning of events away from the historical record, the book emphasises the importance of practitioner research in informing decisions about a strategic and democratic way forward for education around the globe. Teachers and Teacher Unions in a Globalised World will be of great interest to academics and researchers in the field of education, as well as teacher educators, practitioners and policymakers.

This book examines higher education institutions that exemplify gendered success whether in terms of the presence of women in senior positions or attempts to change a gendered organisational culture. It reflects a global perspective, drawing on case studies from eleven countries: Australia, Austria, Ireland, India, New Zealand , Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. In each country an organisation has been selected that demonstrate best practice in terms of gendered outcomes or processes. Gendered Success in Higher Education highlights both the importance and the limitations of indicators such as the proportion of women in senior positions. It proposes a new gender agenda, identifies the factors that need to be included in a model of gendered change, and provides important insights into the nature of gendered change globally and how it can be achieved.

How has New Public Management influenced social policy reform in different developed welfare states? New managerialism is conceptualized as a paradigm, which not only shapes the decision-making process in bureaucratic organizations but also affects the practice of individuals (citizens). Public administrations have been expected to transform from traditional bureaucratic organizations into modern managerial service providers by adopting a business model that requires the efficient and effective use of resources. The introduction of managerial practices, controlling and accounting systems, management by objectives, computerization, service orientation, increased outsourcing, competitive structures and decentralized responsibility are typical of efforts to increase efficiency. These developments have been accompanied by the abolition of civil service systems and fewer secure jobs in public administrations. This book provides a sociological understanding of how public administrations deal with this transformation, how people’s role as public servants is affected, and what kind of strategies emerge either to meet these new organizational requirements or to circumvent them. It shows how hybrid arrangements of public services are created between the public and the private sphere that lead to conflicts of interest between private strategies and public tasks as well as to increasingly homogeneous social welfare provision across Europe.

في الطبعة الأولى (الإنجليزية) من هذا الكتاب بيّن فوريدي كيف أن المثقف بات مخلوقاً مهدداً بالانقراض؛ ومضامين هذه الظاهرة أن أشخاصاً مثل: برتراند راسل، أو ريموند وليامز، أو حنة أريندت ـ أشخاص يمتلكون معارف حقيقية، ورؤية واسعة، ويهتمون بالقضايا العامة ـ تم استبدالهم بمتحدثين سطحيين، واعتذاريي مراكز الأبحاث، ومختصي صناعة الأخبار والصور التلفزيونية. لقد كانت ردود الفعل على آراء فوريدي عاجلة ومتفاوتة؛ حيث رحب مراجعون من مشارب سياسية متباينة، مثل: روجر سكروتون وتيري إيغلتون بشكل عام بالكتاب. أما كتَّاب آخرون مثل: نويل مالكوم وديفيد آرونوفيتش، فقد كانوا أكثر عدائية. أما الأمر الذي لم يفعله أحد فهو تجاهُل الكتاب؛ ثمة إجماع بأن هذا الكتاب مهم في الواقع، وهو في طريقه إلى أن يصبح مرجعاً كلاسيكياً معاصراً. في هذه النسخة الجديدة، يبقي فرانك فوريدي المناظرة المتعلقة بدور المثقفين في مجتمعنا حية بردٍّ صريح وجريء على منتقديه. العبيكان للنشر
