Unilever's Shakti project: empowering Rural Ind...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This research is on the positive and negative aspects of Unilever's Shakti-project, a prime example of marketing to the Bottom of the Pyramid as put forward by C.K. Prahalad (2006). Poor rural Indian women are recruited to become small-scale entrepreneurs by Hindustan Lever, the Indian subsidiary of the Anglo-Dutch multinational Unilever. These women start earning an own income by selling hygiene products in their local community. According to Hindustan Lever, the economic and social status of the women would improve considerably by being a Shakti-entrepreneur. It was found that the Shakti-project does have a positive effect on some women in terms of extra income and empowerment. However, if women do not reach their sales targets, Hindustan Lever is relentless in its actions.

Church Bell

A church bell is a bell which is rung in a (especially Christian) church either to signify the hour or the time for worshippers to go to church, perhaps to attend a wedding, funeral, or other service. Before mass communication they were the only way to gather a village together, so they served for secular functions also. European Christian church bells typically have the form of a cup-shaped cast metal resonator with a flared thickened rim, and a pivoted metal striker or clapper hanging from its center inside. It is usually mounted high in a bell tower on top of the church, so it can be heard by the surrounding community. The bell is suspended at its apex from a horizontal axle, so it can swing from side to side. A rope is tied to a pulley or lever on the axle, and hangs down to ground level. To ring the bell, the bell-ringer pulls on the rope, swinging the bell. The motion causes the clapper to hit the inside rim of the bell as it swings, making the sound. Alternatively, the bell may be suspended from a stationary support, and the bell rung by pulling a rope attached to the clapper to one side.

EXPERT RECOMMENDING SERVICES
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Knowledge is surging as a major resource of sustainable competitive advantage. The Knowledge Community, informal group of individuals that share a common practice, work or interest, is a favourable mechanism to lever knowledge. Organizations are investing, sometimes with little success, in Information Systems supporting the management of knowledge, in order to exploit the knowledge of their experts. Specific Information Systems, the Expert Recommending Services, are conceived to facilitate, in the Knowledge Communities, the identification of the experts that could contribute to solve the business process breakdowns. This research aims at understanding what factors affect the success of this type of Information Systems in order to help the organizations to manage their experts. To attain this aim a multi-method approach has been applied to three different case studies. The main original result is the demonstration that the success of the Expert Recommending Services is influenced by the awareness on the knowledge of the other members of the Knowledge Community.

Living Adult Education: Freire in Scotland
63,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Adult Learning Project in Edinburgh, affectionately known as ALP, is a sustained experiment in applying the principles of the Brazilian educator, Paulo Freire, in a European post-industrial urban environment. Because this book explains so sensitively the theory and rationale of Freirean education, and describes so carefully the Freirean process at work in a Scottish setting, it will hearten and inspire all those who fear the iron hold of mechanistic and passive approaches to learning. Lalage Bown From 1979 to 2011, ALP has written a new chapter in the history of popular education, locally and globally, honouring the brilliance of the 'onelie begetter' of this approach, Paulo Freire, whose writings have inspired us all. Colin and Gerri Kirkwood The fundamental concern in all of Paulo Freire's work is to assert the possibility and potential of human agency, by challenging the passivity and fatalism of ordinary people, intervening purposefully in their lives and enabling them to lever themselves out of 'immersion' in the 'culture of silence'. Through its pedagogy and curriculum, ALP has made a significant contribution to enabling the often marginalized voices of Scottish communities to be heard. For educators the world over who share similar aims and values, the experience of ALP is insightful, instructive and inspirational. Jim Crowther and Ian Martin The period since 1990 has been momentous in the life of ALP, in the sense that ordinary people became involved in an extraordinary political process which changed the life of Scotland forever. Vernon Galloway, Stan Reeves and Nancy Somerville This book will be of interest to educationalists, social scientists and psychologists throughout the world, and in particular to practitioners, students, teachers and promoters of schooling, adult, further and higher education, community development, practical and liberation theology, health and wellbeing, and counseling and psychotherapy.

Israel in the World
46,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Since independence, Israel has lived with a paradox, needing and seeking legitimacy, understanding, and empathy from the world community while simultaneously also discounting the world. This volume reflects upon Israel's troubled attempts to balance its desire to be different from a world that it simultaneously genuinely needs and that it also wants to be a legitimate member of. Gathering distinguished scholars and public figures, this timely book discusses the causes and consequences of Israel's unsettled relations with the world. With essays ranging from an account of Israel's exile mentality and the cosmopolitanism of suffering to a fragmenting international legal order and whether an authentic religious process can transform religion into a powerful lever for peace, the book's innovative analysis will spark both academic and public debate. Israel in the World: Legitimacy and Exceptionalism will appeal to scholars and students with broad ranging research interests including Middle East Studies, Israeli Studies and international relations more generally.
