Direct Provision

Asylum, The Academy and Activism

Edited by Jacqui O'Riordan and Mike FitzGibbon

This book examines approaches and responses to working with the asylum–seeking, refugee and migrant communities in Ireland. Through their experiences, analyses and activist accounts, contributors name direct provision as a system that facilitates the marginalization and de–humanizing of people. In making visible some of the undocumented challenges to direct provision, the co–operation and engagement between local and migrant communities, and the very real and moving experiences of living in such conditions, this publication forms a part of the ongoing challenge to direct provision. It calls for a re–consideration of the infallibility of the reductionist–dominant narrative that reduces responsibility to care and protect human life to narrow economic considerations, and calls on the State to recognize its duty of care in its fullest conceptualization. With this work, we have attempted to bring some of its many facets to the academic and public eye. While analysing through the lens of care, the reductionist and repressive State policies and practices are revealed; but most emphasis is on the reactions and resilience of the asylum–seeking community, through their numerous acts of resistance, supported by a significant cohort of friends and activists within and outwith the direct provision system.

Of Silenced and Unheard Voices from the South

Argentinean Subalternity According to Luisa Valenzuela

Series:

Ana Duffy

Luisa Valenzuela’s oeuvre is marked by a fixation with marginal characters, those often rendered invisible by society and outside hegemony: the subaltern. Valenzuela’s El Mañana captures echoes of the past, aggravated in a globalized world, takes them apart and reassembles them, to then project them into the future. With a clearly dystopian intention, Valenzuela’s novel reveals how instances of subjugation under despotism may be re-enacted by following a pattern of forgetting and repeating.

This book examines the novel’s main fictional characters, who propel the reader to an Argentinean distant and recent past, present and future, challenging and dismantling their founding beliefs, and finally reformulating them from below. The novel is shown to present a decolonial version of the dystopian genre in which a new configuration of power projects the perils of gender, class and patriarchal oppression onto the future, along the lines of coloniality. Ultimately, by addressing themes relevant to the fields of literary fiction, criticism and theory as well as decolonial and postcolonial studies, this book maps out the development of subalternity by performing a situated reading of a major work of Argentinean literature.

Die Beiträge dieses Sammelbandes zielen darauf ab – in interdisziplinärer Annäherung und unter Rückgriff auf den vielschichtigen Begriff der «Textur» – die Spuren zu erforschen, die die um den Mittelmeerraum entstandenen komplexen Herrschaftsverhältnisse in den Gebilden der Kultur, der Kunst und der Literatur hinterlassen haben. Die historische Perspektive der Untersuchungen setzt bei der Antike an und erstreckt sich bis ins 21. Jahrhundert hinein, in dessen Kontext das aktuelle Problem der Flüchtlinge angesprochen wird. Methodologisch bedienen sich die aus Universitäten von diversen europäischen Ländern herkommenden Autor*innen Annäherungen aus den Bereichen der postcolonial-, memory-, und gender-studies sowie der Alteritätsforschung, der Philosophie und der Translationswissenschaft.

Die Fluktuation von Beschäftigungsverhältnissen durch den Abgang des Arbeitnehmers ist als rechtlich und ökonomisches Problem weithin geklärt. Der zielgerichtet bewirkte Austausch des Arbeitgebers zur Meidung rechtlicher und wirtschaftlicher Arbeitgeberlasten ist hingegen ein junges Phänomen, das punktuell erfasst ist, aber noch nicht übergreifend und monographisch untersucht worden ist. Das unternimmt die Autorin, indem Sie untersucht, wie sich Arbeitgeber ihren Pflichten aus dem Individualarbeitsrecht, der Mitbestimmung und dem Tarifvertragsrecht entziehen und auf welche rechtlichen und arbeitsorganisatorischen Gestaltungsmittel Arbeitgeber zur Meidung des Arbeitsrechts zurückgreifen.

Datenrechtsgesetz 1.0

Die theoretische Basis

SSAP International

Edited by Yuming Lian

Since its emergence, big data has brought us new forms of energy, technology and means of organization which will generate greater values by crossover, integration, openness and sharing of data. Nevertheless, risks caused by open access and the flow of data also bring us enormous challenges to privacy, business secrets and social and national securities. This raises people’s awareness on data sharing, privacy protection and social justice, and becomes a significant governance problem in the world. In order to solve these problems, Data Rights Law 1.0 is innovative in that it proposes a new concept of the «data person». It defines «data rights» as the rights derived from the «data person» and «data rights system» as the order based on «data rights». «Data rights law» is the legal normative formed out of the «data rights system». In this way, the book constructs a legal framework of «data rights-data rights system-data rights law». If data is considered as basic rights, on which new order and laws are to be built, it will bring brand new and profound meaning to future human life.

The book discusses the issue of religiosity in the context of American Jewish literature, emphasizing the significance of Judaism as an indispensable element in the formation of American Jewish female identity. The empirical part of the book is devoted to a critical comprehensive analysis of selected fiction by contemporary American Jewish female writers, representatives of the third generation, whose works were published between 1980–2005. The literary analyses of the selected narratives reveal a strong connection between the identity of American Jewish women and Judaism, and the simultaneous need to modify it in the face of socio-political transformations occurring in the American society at the turn of the twenty-first century
