’ – such as the ‘right’ to rent and the ‘right’ to work – have been named in public policy as if these actually mean something for national citizens (rather than being dependent on economic means, education and skills, or discrimination). According to Anderson ( 2015 ), the purpose has been to strengthen distinctions between those who hold national citizenship and those who do not. In other words, ‘fantasy rights’ conjured up

of revelatory bewilderment – later a feature of his own narrative method – which mark key passages of transition in the development of an individual. For example, James remembers how, in Geneva in 1860, on one of the family’s European journeys, his parents were‘in their prompt flush of admiration for George Eliot’s first novel,Adam Bede’. Having excitedly lent their copy to an English family, they were astonished and mortified to hear that ‘their fellow Anglo-Saxons’ had found it impossible to be interested in ‘village carpenters and Methodists’. Such a discrimination

conduct comprehensive community-based research to investigate the transition of Aboriginal students from Aboriginal-controlled post-secondary education institutes to public post-secondary education institutes. Aboriginal students face a number of barriers to attaining a post-secondary education in Canada. As Hunt-Jinnouchi et al. (2009) note, ‘the Learning Journey has been fraught with challenges for many Aboriginal students due to the impacts of generations attending residential school, racism, discrimination and the lack of meaningful, relevant cultural curriculum’ (p

does not feel at home there because he experiences racism and discrimination. His will to migrate to Europe remains unbroken. For the first iteration of the installation, the dome structure was created using a 3D-printable geodesic connector system with hardwood dowels. Trace paper was used as the rear projection screen. The second iteration was created using plywood, and the final piece was built using oak, often used in Moroccan woodwork. To reduce the possibility of fire hazards, a professional rear screen projection film was chosen that is

Although international agencies are increasingly imposing ‘good governance’ conditionality in their dealings with South Asian states, it remains to be seen whether such

continuing one. Domestically, the hundred years after the Civil War (1861–65) were characterized by a gradual abandonment of narrow assimilationism and the enactment – in the 1960s – of legislation, prompted by the civil rights movement (Morris 1984), to uphold the rights of citizenship of all Americans. Addressing the legacies of pre-1960s discrimination and racism (Fields 1990; Jordan 1968; Kelley 1994) proved a platform for a multiculturalist reformulation of American national identity, or in David Hollinger’s phrase a ‘post-ethnic politics’ (Hollinger 1995).

raised awareness of the need to protect older members of society from abuse and discrimination. One of the first documents on the rights of the older person was the Brasilia Declaration on Ageing (WHO 1996). One of the most recent was the Declaration of Rights for Older People in Wales (2014), and the United Nations is calling for a legally binding convention on the rights of older people (Office of the High Commissioner for Human 50 Freedom of science: promises and hazards Rights 2014). Virtually all declarations and conventions on human rights contain statements

Discrimination; she was a candidate for election to the board. The accusations of subversive activity become so pronounced that she resigned as a consultant to the US Public Health Service, and as a member of the Training Committee of the National Advisory Mental Health Council. The pressure became too much to bear: there is no basis for questioning my loyalty to the US[.] I am submitting my resignation lest my continued association reflect adversely in the slightest degree on the National Mental Health Program. I value the importance of this Program so highly that I prefer

formal and normative structures that emerge from history and cultural legacies typically manifest in a range of demotic experiences that are contingent upon socio-​economic, cultural contexts. Constitutions are central to these structures, which in many cases stress the importance of equality and inclusion, yet the reality of political life is somewhat different. While Article 17 of the Omani Constitution articulates that, ‘All citizens are equal before the Law and share the same public rights and duties. There is no discrimination between them on the ground of gender
