Importantly, they must also be able to form an independent decision on this and be able to communicate their decision to researchers. 121 BEE (RESEARCH) PRINT.indd 121 11/05/2018 16:16 Discussion point 1: Considering the above, read case example A in Figure 28.

life In order to effect a major shift in the meaning of autism, there also had to be a major shift in the organisation of social life. Such a transformation began in 1959. This was the year in which the Mental Health Act was passed, which led to the closure of long-stay institutions for children. It was the Mental Health Act 1959 that set the scene for the gradual

that challenges the configurations of complex systems, policy interventions and public health can also be derived from rethinking the interplay of the biological and the social through a framing that foregrounds public health more in terms of a sense of propensity or emergence of patterns in specific contexts. For example, the study of urban mental health has prompted Nikolas Rose and colleagues to return to the theoretical foundations of social science in analysis of the relationship between the metropolis and mental health. In his chapter in this volume, Rose

’ (Bourdieu, 2000, p. 228). Where the one who is made to wait is forced into submission, the powerful is the one ‘who does not wait but who makes others wait’. Therefore, ‘absolute power is the power to make oneself unpredictable and deny other people any reasonable anticipation, to place them in total uncertainty by offering no scope to their capacity to predict’ (Bourdieu, 2000, p. 228). Prolonged insecurity, as waiting in the asylum system entails, may severely impact mental health, and researchers and migrants alike refer to this prolonged insecurity as psychological

concern here, however, is with the similarities between the institutions of school and mental health. Schools serve as the gateways to the outside adult world, a place where children learn and become ‘civilised’, that is to say, culturally and socially adept. Schools deliver a complex network of control exercised through hierarchical, disciplinary and educational structures in an attempt to make children conform to adult ideas of ‘ideal’ or ‘normal’ person. The mental health system is a gateway through which one who has diverged from the ‘normal’ can enter ‘ill’ and re

would be a longitudinal study. This design would enable Paul to examine how rates of depression change over time and generate further hypotheses (possible explanations to be proven or disproven) about the factors that seem to increase the prevalence of depression in the population or explain differences in the prevalence of depression in different subgroups (e.g. age, gender and ethnic groups). These factors might, for example, include things like changes in mental health policy, funding or service provision during this time. However, a longitudinal study cannot prove

continuous stakeholder engagement for research dissemination. Introduction Mental health care resources are finite. In order to ensure service users receive the highest quality health care, evidence about the most effective and acceptable treatments needs to be fully incorporated into health care policy and practice. However, we have known for a long time that this is not happening as well as it should be within health services and that research evidence is not being transferred sufficiently to routine clinical practice both in the UK and across the world. This is often

Given the significant similarities and differences between the welfare states of Northern Europe and their reactions to the perceived 'refugee crisis' of 2015, the book focuses primarily on the three main cases of Denmark, Sweden and Germany. Placed in a wider Northern European context – and illustrated by those chapters that also discuss refugee experiences in Norway and the UK – the Danish, Swedish and German cases are the largest case studies of this edited volume. Thus, the book contributes to debates on the governance of non-citizens and the meaning of displacement, mobility and seeking asylum by providing interdisciplinary analyses of a largely overlooked region of the world, with two specific aims. First, we scrutinize the construction of the 2015 crisis as a response to the large influx of refugees, paying particular attention to the disciplinary discourses and bureaucratic structures that are associated with it. Second, we investigate refugees’ encounters with these bureaucratic structures and consider how these encounters shape hopes for building a new life after displacement. This allows us to show that the mobility of specific segments of the world’s population continues to be seen as a threat and a risk that has to be governed and controlled. Focusing on the Northern European context, our volume interrogates emerging policies and discourses as well as the lived experiences of bureaucratization from the perspective of individuals who find themselves the very objects of bureaucracies.

The book explores the relationship between violence against women on one hand, and the rights to health and reproductive health on the other. It argues that violation of the right to health is a consequence of violence, and that (state) health policies might be a cause of – or create the conditions for – violence against women. It significantly contributes to feminist and international human rights legal scholarship by conceptualising a new ground-breaking idea, violence against women’s health (VAWH), using the Hippocratic paradigm as the backbone of the analysis. The two dimensions of violence at the core of the book – the horizontal, ‘interpersonal’ dimension and the vertical ‘state policies’ dimension – are investigated through around 70 decisions of domestic, regional and international judicial or quasi-judicial bodies (the anamnesis). The concept of VAWH, drawn from the anamnesis, enriches the traditional concept of violence against women with a human rights-based approach to autonomy and a reflection on the pervasiveness of patterns of discrimination (diagnosis). VAWH as theorised in the book allows the reconceptualisation of states’ obligations in an innovative way, by identifying for both dimensions obligations of result, due diligence obligations, and obligations to progressively take steps (treatment). The book eventually asks whether it is not international law itself that is the ultimate cause of VAWH (prognosis).
