A Shift in Focus : Putting the interests of Somali people first

More than six months after the UN declared a famine, Somalia is still in the throes of its worst humanitarian crisis in decades, with 325,000 children suffering acute malnutrition and 31 per cent of the population estimated to be in crisis. A large scale-up of the international response from July 2011, combined with the efforts of Somali communities and civil society, saved many lives. But access to those in need has deteriorated due to expulsions of aid agencies and also to intensified, internationally backed military operations. Responsibility for this situation lies first and foremost in Somalia, where warring factions are accused of impeding and diverting aid flows, but the international community has also been at fault. Policies focused more on international security concerns than on the needs, interests and wishes of the Somali people have inadvertently fuelled both the conflict and the humanitarian crisis. In February 2012, key governments and institutions from the region and the wider Islamic and Western world will meet in London to chart a way forward. They must seize this opportunity to refocus on the Somali people that past policies have failed, developing more coherent strategies to ensure that aid and protection reach those who need it, addressing the root causes of the protracted conflict and chronic vulnerability in the country, while developing coherent strategies to ensure humanitarian aid reaches those who need it.

This innovative book is about identifying and releasing entrepreneurial potential. Using the idea of character themes, it defines the entrepreneur in terms of six key themes, and provides readers with the opportunity to assess themselves in these areas. This book also discusses how entrepreneurs develop, or are stifled, in society at large and within large organizations - the topic of intrapreneurship - and considers how successful entrepreneurs measure up against the six character themes identified. The authors enable readers to identify their talents so that they can be more creative, innovative and enterprising. Having read this book, readers will have a better understanding of their entrepreneurial potential. This book will be essential reading for the general professional business market, and for students of entrepreneurship and enterprise development at undergraduate, MBA and MSc levels."FACETS (Focus, Advantage, Creativity, Ego, Team and Social) succinctly summarizes the themes of entrepreneurs that we at Gallup have been studying and discovering during this last twenty years. I believe the book will be an excellent tool for any person practicing entrepreneurship and should be a required reading for entrepreneurship study in colleges and universities." Don Clifton, Chairman of Gallup International Research Centre, retired Chairman of Gallup IncThe range of examples used really aim the text at anyone interested in finding out about what is meant by those words - 'entrepreneurship' and 'being entrepreneurial' and 'being enterprising'. It could therefore be read by anyone thinking about going into business on their own or just trying to understand how they could be more enterprising."

Ben Jerry's Double Dip

How to Run a Values Led Business and Make Money Too

Commercial success need not come at the cost of human value. Just ask Ben and Jerry, whose first ice cream shop in an abandoned Vermont gas station grew into a $160 million business. Yet Ben & Jerry continue to use the power of business to change the world. With its seemingly wacky antics, controversial social and political stands, and iconoclastic corporate policies, the company that's come to embody socially responsible business has drawn the scepticism of business analysts, the criticism of media cynics - and the amazement- and ultimately, the respect- of the business world and the people in it. As Ben and Jerry explain in DOUBLE-DIP, they haven't always known exactly what they were doing, but they've always known why they were doing it. There's a method to their madness; that method is what they call 'values-led business.' BEN & JERRY'S DOUBLE-DIP explains what values-led business is, why it's the best model for business today, and how anyone who owns, works for, invests in, or shops with a company can help make it a socially responsible business.

Growing Up in Central Australia

New Anthropological Studies of Aboriginal Childhood and Adolescence

Author: Ute Eickelkamp

Publisher: Berghahn Books

ISBN: 9780857450838

Category: Social Science

Page: 310

View: 8863

Surprisingly little research has been carried out about how Australian Aboriginal children and teenagers experience life, shape their social world and imagine the future. This volume presents recent and original studies of life experiences outside the institutional settings of childcare and education, of those growing up in contemporary Central Australia or with strong links to the region. Focusing on the remote communities – roughly 1,200 across the continent – the volume includes case studies of language and family life in small country towns and urban contexts. These studies expertly show that forms of consciousness have changed enormously over the last hundred years for Indigenous societies more so than for the rest of Australia, yet equally notable are the continuities across generations.
