Die Bekämpfung von Ungleichbehandlungen und Benachteiligungen ist ein fundamentaler Wert, eine der Grundfesten der Demokratie und einer der Eckpfeiler des Zusammenlebens in der modernen, multikulturellen Gesellschaft. Dies gilt in besonderer Weise für die vulnerable Rechtsbeziehung der privaten Beschäftigungsverhältnisse. In Großbritannien wurden die entsprechenden beschäftigungsbezogenen Schutzmechanismen mit dem „Equality Act 2010“ vor verhältnismäßig kurzer Zeit auf eine neue Grundlage gestellt. Zum ersten Mal seit nunmehr beinahe 50 Jahren ist das im europäischen Vergleich teils sehr fortschrittliche und wegweisende britische Diskriminierungsschutzrecht in Gestalt von bisher neun bedeutenden Rechtsakten sowie rund 100 Rechtsverordnungen in einem einzigen einheitlichen Gleichstellungsgesetz zusammengeführt. Die vorliegende Arbeit erschließt dieses neue Gesetz für den deutschen Rechtsanwender und zeigt die wesentlichen Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten zum deutschen Recht und insbesondere dem Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz auf.

There are many publications about the need to limit population growth. Most stop after strong arguments that somebody must do something. Most are scholarly publications that get read by people who are already well aware of the problems. (They preach to the choir, not the other sinners in the pews.) This one is different. It deals with the economic and moral issues that affect every person. It is aimed at people not accustomed to reading weighty material, and who haven't yet heard the message in a meaningful way. It tells how every individual, in every life circumstance, can help.

"Political Philosophy, Clearly delivers on the promise of its title: essays that tackle foundational political issues such as the relationship between justice and liberty, the role of property, and the effect of confusing liberty with "rights" and justice with "fairness." Although these issues are complex, Jasay lays out his libertarian philosophy with clarity and passion." "The articles collected in this volume delve deeply into the realm of political thought and its philosophical criticism. They will appeal to students of philosophy, politics, and economics, or anyone who is interested in a clear, jargon-free account of libertarian thought." --Book Jacket.

The Equality Act 2010 in Mental Health provides a critical guide to the Act: what it means for mental health services and how it should be implemented. It addresses each of the nine characteristics protected by the Act in turn, examining the research and practice issue associated with each and offering positive guidance. Contributors also highlight the broader issues associated with achieving equality in mental health, including conflicts between different forms of discrimination, the impact of budget cuts and the issue of inequality in wider society and how it relates to the mental health services. Finally, the book tackles organisational change and the implications for management practice, organisational structures and staff training. This book will be a valuable resource for those involved in providing mental health services, including managers and frontline workers across health and social care.

Two new bargaining games, called "Freedom to Punish (FTP)" and "Right and Choice to Punish (RAP)", are developed, analyzed and tested by means of an experimental implementation. Hypotheses about behavior are developed, discussed and tested. The central hypotheses are aimed at the importance of freedom of choice, on the difference between the FTP game and the RAP game, and on the crowding-out of intrinsic motivation. As might have been expected, fairness plays a role in both games, represented by the frequent appearances of equal splits as well as by the frequent rejections of unfair offers.In addition to that, fairness was crowded out by the new Institution of a veto power decision, confirming the importance of the institutional setting for behavior. Contrary to the few veto power sales in the RAP game, an amazingly high number of receivers refrained from veto power in the FTP game. This significant difference has clearly been attributed to the different information conditions and the existence of a bonus. This bonus can be interpreted in terms of freedom of choice, and exploits a value for the freedom to choose for the first time in experimental economics.

There is a highly significant and under-considered intersection and interaction between migration law and labour law. Labour lawyers have tended to regard migration law as generally speaking outside their purview, and migration lawyers have somewhat similarly tended to neglect labour law. The culmination of a collaborative project on 'Migrants at Work' funded by the John Fell Fund, the Society of Legal Scholars, and the Research Centre at St John's College, Oxford, this volume brings together distinguished legal and migration scholars to examine the impact of migration law on labour rights and how the regulation of migration increasingly impacts upon employment and labour relations. Examining and clarifying the interactions between migration, migration law, and labour law, contributors to the volume identify the many ways that migration law, as currently designed, divides the objectives of labour law, privileging concerns about the labour supply and demand over worker-protective concerns. In addition, migration law creates particular forms of status, which affect employment relations, thereby dividing the subjects of labour law. Chapters cover the labour laws of the UK, Australia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Germany, Sweden, and the US. References are also made to discrete practices in Brazil, France, Greece, New Zealand, Mexico, Poland, and South Africa. These countries all host migrants and have developed systems of migration law reflecting very different trajectories. Some are traditional countries of immigration and settlement migration, while others have traditionally been countries of emigration but now import many workers. There are, nonetheless, common features in their immigration law which have a profound impact on labour law, for instance in their shared contemporary shift to using temporary labour migration programmes. Further chapters examine EU and international law on migration, labour rights, human rights, and human trafficking and smuggling, developing cross-jurisdictional and multi-level perspectives. Written by leading scholars of labour law, migration law, and migration studies, this book provides a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to this field of legal interaction, of interest to academics, policymakers, legal practitioners, trade unions, and migrants' groups alike.

This book focuses on the moral problems that arise for people who labor in ordinary places -- factories, schools, mines, stores, and farms. Moral Rights in the Workplace examines problems of freedom and coercion that develop on the job, issues of the right to meaningful work, occupational health and safety, whistleblowing, the right to union organization, unemployment, and the flight of factories, the rights of health care workers, and workers' self-management. Issues of employment discrimination such as comparable worth, seniority, affirmative action, and worksharing that have been given scant attention in other books are also discussed.

This challenging, hard-hitting book is about making schooling relevant to modern society. It starts from the premise that our present education system is ill equipped to serve students and society in the twenty-first century. In a series of positive yet powerful and provocative chapters, the authors look at critical issues shaping schools today, with a view to: * set out the critical issues behind the headlines * show evidence from research and examples of good practice * stimulate public debate and rigorous thinking about how we educate children for life in the twenty-first century * provide practical examples of learning for the future * present a vision for school transformation. With contributions from a range of leading commentators including Tim Brighouse, Jonathan Poritt, Anita Roddick, Charles Handy and Jonathan Sacks, this is a must-read for school leaders, teachers, policy-makers, parents and all education professionals.

Is killing sometimes morally required? Is the free market fair? It is sometimes wrong to tell the truth? What is justice, and what does it mean? These and other questions are at the heart of Michael Sandel's Justice. Considering the role of justice in our society and our lives, he reveals how an understanding of philosophy can help to make sense of politics, religion, morality - and our own convictions. Breaking down hotly contested issues, from abortion, euthanasia and same-sex marriage, to patriotism, dissent and affirmative action, Sandel shows how the biggest questions in our civiv life can be broken down and illuminated through reasoned debate. Justice promises to take readers - of all ages and political persuasions - on an exhilarating journey to confront controversies in a fresh and enlightening way.

Political obligation refers to the moral obligation of citizens to obey the law of their state and to the existence, nature, and justification of a special relationship between a government and its constituents. This volume in the Contemporary Anarchist Studies series challenges this relationship, seeking to define and defend the position of critical philosophical anarchism against alternative approaches to the issue of justification of political institutions. The book sets out to demonstrate the value of taking an anarchist approach to the problem of political authority, looking at theories of natural duty, state justification, natural duty of justice, fairness, political institutions, and more. It argues that the anarchist perspective is in fact indispensable to theorists of political obligation and can improve our views of political authority and social relations. This accessible book builds on the works of philosophical anarchists such as John Simmons and Leslie Green, and discusses key theorists, including Rousseau, Rawls, and Horton. This key resource will make an important contribution to anarchist political theory and to anarchist studies more generally.

This book is an essay on how people make sense of each other and the world they live in. Making sense is the activity of fitting something puzzling into a coherent pattern of mental representations that include concepts, beliefs, goals, and actions. Paul Thagard proposes a general theory of coherence as the satisfaction of multiple interacting constraints, and discusses the theory's numerous psychological and philosophical applications. Much of human cognition can be understood in terms of coherence as constraint satisfaction, and many of the central problems of philosophy can be given coherence-based solutions. Thagard shows how coherence can help to unify psychology and philosophy, particularly when addressing questions of epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, politics, and aesthetics. He also shows how coherence can integrate cognition and emotion.
