    Reimagining Home in the 21st Century

    Edited by Justine Lloyd, Ellie Vasta

Through these frameworks, the collection as whole suggests that our home does not ‘belong’ to us, rather we ‘belong’ to home. Learn More

    Flourishing in Life, Work and Careers

    Edited by Ronald J. Burke, Kathryn M. Page, Cary L. Cooper

Flourishing in Life, Work and Careers explores ways in which contemporary working people can thrive in a complex, volatile and uncertain world. Combining both research and practice, the contributors of this book cover all bases from individual wellbeing, family, work and career experiences, to leadership. They conclude by providing the reader with tools to combine what they have learnt and apply it to their own lives. Learn More

  19. Gender, Development and Disasters

    Gender, Development and Disasters

    Sarah Bradshaw
    Sarah Bradshaw critically examines key notions, such as gender, vulnerability, risk, and humanitarianism, underpinning development and disaster discourse. Case studies are used to demonstrate how disasters are experienced individually and collectively as gendered events. Through consideration of processes to engender development, it problematizes women’s inclusion in disaster response and reconstruction. The study highlights that while women are now central to both disaster response and development, tackling gender inequality is not. By critically reflecting on gendered disaster response and the gendered impact of disasters on processes of development, it exposes some important lessons for future policy. Learn More

  20. The Costs of Children

    The Costs of Children

    Edited by David G. Mayes, Mark Thomson
    The expert contributors provide an assessment of how countries can handle the fair allocation of the costs of childcare. They look at the experience within Europe in recent years and show in particular how these interrelate with the objectives of improving income, employment and social inclusion. The book’s conclusion reveals that choice is the key ingredient as families have different views and different degrees of support available from their relatives. Income and social inclusion can provide choice but ironically employment does not always. An employment-based model can sometimes narrow people’s choices, particularly for people on low wages. The major concern is that most existing systems effectively discriminate against mothers. Learn More
