Abstract [en]

This short paper is a submission, from the Centre for Welfare Reform to Professor Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights. Our submission offers an overview of the UK Government’s Austerity policy. The Austerity policy was established in 2010 by David Cameron’s Coalition Government. The policy is regressive, cumulative and continuous; its five main components are:

  1. Cuts to public services
  2. Cuts to the income of the poor and disadvantaged
  3. Benefits to advantaged groups
  4. Rhetoric to blame poverty on the disadvantaged groups
  5. Increased conditionality and social control

It is important to note that Austerity is not about austerity. It is an ideological policy, presented as if it were driven by economic necessity and for the greater good, however:

  • The policy has been broadly deflationary and has weakened the UK’s economic performance - the UK’s wage growth, recovery and debt levels have been woeful.
  • If the purpose of the policy had been to reduce public and private debt then it would have targeted tax increases on the wealthiest 15% - the only group to have genuinely seen their incomes increase over the past 40 years.

For this reason we will not refer to Austerity - but instead to Austerity - the erasure representing the fact that Austerity is a lie. 

It is also important to note that the policies introduced in 2010 were not a reversal of previous policies. Austerity is the accelerated development of policies that began in the 1980s and have increased poverty and injustice in the UK for 40 years. It is impossible in 2,500 words to document all the harmful policies of Austerity and we expect other groups to provide different perspectives; so our focus will be limited to:

  • The harm caused by Austerity 
  • How Austerity functions
  • Why Austerity has continued

Abstract [en]

This chapter covers a range of topics pertaining to the ontological, epistemological, and ethical intricacies, complications, and possibilities of providing quality healthcare to women patients regardless of disability, race, ethnicity, and class by using empirical examples of certain diseases. Methodological concepts through reflections on subjectivity and objectivity are presented as contested issues, and radical objectivity, a concept comprising subjectivity, objectivity, and intersubjectivity, is proposed as a knowledge paradigm that allows healthcare personnel and patients to make knowledge claims that are mutually recognized as valid. Three models of healthcare, paternalistic, person-centered, and feminist pragmatist, are presented, outlining the specific problems inherent in each model of healthcare provision. The paternalistic model allows for no agency on the patients’ part, elevating healthcare personnel, specifically doctors, to authoritative knowers. The person-centered model of healthcare grants some shared responsibility between healthcare personnel and patients, and some concessions are made toward patients as knowers. In the feminist pragmatist model, healthcare personnel and patients commit to equal relationships. Gender equality and gender equity are identified as insufficient tools for organizational change, and theories of professions are drawn on to deliberate about change at the systemic level.

Abstract [en]

In knowledge-intensive organisations, it is unnecessarily limiting to define the workplace as a physical building encompassing a ‘nine to five’ work shift. Much knowledge-intensive work can be conducted off-site using various forms of information technology. For the chronically ill, an inability to access the physical workplace is often used as an excuse to remove the employee, with little effort made to keep them employed via different work methods. This isolates the former employee and causes a loss of their, often considerable, knowledge to the organisation. We must reconsider how we view what work is and what constitutes the workplace.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to present an understanding of knowledge and learning in organisations from pragmatist perspectives. Relying on the work of early pragmatists as well as contemporary pragmatists, we introduce a conceptualisation of knowledge as the outcome of inquiry. Knowledge, in this article, is presented as provisional, multi-perspective, both particular and general. Our point of departure here is that the chief value of knowledge is its usefulness in solving problems. Pragmatist views of knowledge are further explicated in our discussion of four pragmatist themes, which we have identified as particularly viable on the basis of Jane Addams’ pragmatist view and the practice of democracy in organised life: 

1) Knowledge as transactional in organisations,

2) Reciprocity and learning in organisations,

3) Experience-based knowledge and meaning-making in organisations, and

4) Sustainability as an ongoing, democratic process in organisations.  

In the pragmatist school of thought we draw upon, a predominant issue is always also the very purpose of knowledge, or what we refer to as ‘usefulness’. Under discussion,we argue that a pragmatist understanding of knowledge and learning in organisations allows us to move beyond the polarisation of cognitive-possession – social-process and instead work from an alternative framework, with a focus on processes of learning and knowledge in organisations that aim at integrative, democratic problem solving.
