distinction between the various kinds of things that they do. The rejection of the view that if there is a contrast between statements and other actions then only the other actions are real has a long history. Hypocrisy is not just, as La Rochefoucauld put it, the compliment that vice pays to virtue. The aphorism is a recognition that even when you want to do the very opposite of what you promised, you have to frame your betrayal in the language and values to which publicly you are committed. This may not be an iron restraint, but it is a restraint nonetheless, and a

recognition of problems with the NIF's previous support for the NSCZ. As a result, NIF funding was reallocated to the benefit of both of Zambia's fledgling SfD NGOs. At the same time, the broader international development priorities of Norway and its primary funding agency, NORAD, were quickly adopted within Zambian SfD. Besides HIV/AIDS and poverty reduction, women's rights and gender equality (NORAD, 2000 ; Norwegian Ministry of

these elite and economic resources, which give it the ability to promote its identity locally. By presenting the quality of their wine in this way, the quartet of winemaker, land, heritage, and global market has found a place where the individual relationship to consumers is central and where the Protestant affiliation is mobilised. For this reason, the Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux Union has a problem of recognition locally by the whole population. It is usually associated with a rather Protestant elite; though even if many Protestants are in the Union, not all its members are

Craft professions, cultural policies, and identity

, the limited economic scope of this measure, insufficient itself to replace the totality of the previous economic system, can be considered in some sense as the institutional Trojan horse, which comes accompanied by a series of parallel interventions of an ideological character.2 In this way the institutions are creating an ideological base related to an idea of tradition, already controversial, and with a certain conception of cultural, not national identity. In the Galician case, the recognition of a difference, based on culture, did not suppose a confrontational

. These responses have placed increasing emphasis on the responsibilities of scientists. Framed within recognition of the reciprocal responsibilities of scientists and policymakers, further joint work is needed to manage this tension and develop appropriate and effective international responses. Scientific freedoms and (scientific) responsibilities Scientific freedom is subject to internal and external constraints, some of which relate to responsibilities that are widely recognised by the scientific community. This chapter focuses on international dimensions of science

, based on educated guesswork and projections of the rate of technical development, it must be stressed that the prototypes and experimental robots extant today are extremely impressive devices. It is possible to emulate proprioception, tactility (Syntouch 2016), visual processing and object recognition, walking and running (Honda 2016a) – even on rough terrain and at high speeds (Raibert et al. 2008) – and many more elements of human biology through recent advancements in microelectronics and combined systems. Even the high-speed recognition, analysis and reaction

only orientated towards depriving subjects of already existing rights. But deprivation follows a history of practices through which people have been categorised as political (in)humans with access to recognition, rights and dignity. Deprivation in this sense creates boundaries between 170 Bordering intimacy who can be human or not-quite/non-human. As I have argued across this book, this was continuously shaped and resuscitated by claims to the familial. Such violent distinctions between categories of the human rebounded across the British Empire. Writing in 1879

(www.ohchr.org/EN/ ProfessionalInterest/Pages/CESCR.aspx) This also means that citizens, all of us, are entitled to report specific violations of human rights, including those relating to science and the enjoyment of its benefits. The recognition of a human right is therefore also a call for mobilisation; it involves the acknowledgement of our responsibilities to check and strengthen the enjoyment of this right across the world. It is

explained a painful situation in which she still found herself. The researcher recorded this for use in her work (the story became data), while the participant herself would continue to have to live in this situation. The researcher was sympathetic and tried to express her sympathy (for example, by holding the participant's hand), but then was ‘floored’ by the recognition of a direct challenge to the value of this sympathy when faced with the

My approach to history is motivated by a genealogical method of research, starting with the recognition that contemporary denaturalisation practices continuously articulate a past that nonetheless remains only partially known to us.
