Unpacking the politics of equality, diversity and inclusion: The case of Israeli Jewish and Palestinian women in municipal councils

Data publikacji: 21 Jul 2021
Zakres stron: 4 - 22

Abstrakt

Abstract

This research aims to unpack the politics of gender equality and inclusion in municipal councils, focusing on the patterns of women’s political practices; the institutional impact of the national and local cultures on the organizational cultures. It is based on action-research and mixed-method format. Eight municipal councils in small and medium size Jewish, Arab and Jewish-Arab towns in the Northern district participate in the study. Initial findings suggest that women's meaningful involvement in the municipal strategic decision-making is partial. There is a significant gap between the declared strive for gender equality and inclusion and women's actual influence in decision-making. This gap looms particularly large in the Arab towns. The mechanisms of exclusion and potential avenues of counteracting them are discussed.

The influence of entrepreneurial skills, education and risk perception on career choice intent: The case of European students with family business background

Data publikacji: 21 Jul 2021
Zakres stron: 23 - 37

Abstrakt

Abstract

When confronted with career choice, students with family business background have a specific trilemma. Having an additional career alternative as a potential family business successor, makes their career choice decision more complex compared with their peers. The purpose of this paper is to investigate how entrepreneurial education, risk perception and skill mastering influence career choice intention of this specific group of students. We used a data set from GUESSS 2014 survey. Our sample includes students with family business background from 18 European countries. We used a multinomial logistic regression since our dependant variable has three categorical solutions (entrepreneur, employee and successor). Our findings may be used by consultants, education institutions and more importantly by parents which find themselves in a triple role of an entrepreneur, an owner and a parent.

Abstract

This study examines the problematic of budget implementation in Nigeria using Delta State as a case study. The design of the study was descriptive survey. The population of the study comprised of 2383 senior staff in the Delta State Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education, Ministry of Economic Planning, Ministry of Works, Ministry of Housing and Ministry of Finance. The sample of the study consisted of 350 senior staff drawn from level 10-16 using stratified and simple random techniques. The instruments used for data collection was budget implementation questionnaire. The data were analyzed using mean rating and chi-square. The findings of the study revealed that there is significant relationship between politics of accommodation, poor commitment, compromised budget monitoring, culture of corruption and budget implementation in Delta State. The study also recommended among others that approved budgets should be religiously implemented without considering or accommodating the personal or selfish interests of different stakeholders in the political system, there should be genuine and high-level commitment to the execution of budgets after their approval so that such budgetary allocations and provisions can translate into concrete development in all the envisaged sectors, and there should be an efficient and effective monitoring of approved budgetary projects as well as zero tolerance for corruption.

Social change in contemporary Nigeria: A theoretical discourse

Data publikacji: 21 Jul 2021
Zakres stron: 57 - 82

Abstrakt

Abstract

This paper examines social change in Nigeria between 1960 and 2015 using the theoretical stance of some classical and contemporary theories of change. Also, the paper focuses on the interpretation of the process of social change in terms of what makes change happen, the characteristics of change and managing change in a given society. The explanatory research design was employed in explaining the socio-cultural, political and economic dimensions of change in Nigeria. The paper concludes that the dynamics and realities of social change in Nigeria could best be explained and understood through a triangulation of change theories with strong empirical roots in sociology.

Women’s status in Tunisia post revolution, legal acquis and real achievements

Data publikacji: 21 Jul 2021
Zakres stron: 83 - 101

Abstrakt

Abstract

Under the umbrella of democratic transition, a new constitution was written which encourages more for gender equality and provides Tunisian women with further rights, mainly the political ones, to improve more the status of women within the complexity of the Tunisia society. This paper intends to focus on the Gender Gap Index, a methodological approach for the measurement of gender equality published by the World Economic Forum, to examine the regulations on women’s rights in the Tunisian constitution and to connect the statistics with legal achievement in order to try to answer the main research question: to what extent laws about Tunisian women’s rights are translated in practice?
