gains made in education could benefit future generations. (Noyoo, 2008 : 123) A similar decline occurred in the sport sector, despite ongoing NDPs and other policy documents indicating a desire for continued development of sport. With the SOCs being central to the provision of sport, there were particular repercussions of the cutting of government subsidies to these companies. Provision of annual

irregularise their status and designate them as migrants, which made them deportable (De Genova, 2002 ), despite the fact that at the time they did not cross any international borders and many of them did not even cross the Czech republican border. Whilst the 1993 Citizenship Act did not create a statelessness situation per se , it left future generations of Roma at risk of administrative de jure statelessness (Owen, 2018 ) and without access to rights connected to citizenship and even residence. The provisions in the 1993 Citizenship Act targeted Roma as a racialised

industrialisation and urbanisation in England, Taylor argues, there was increased political and evangelical attention directed towards children as members of a distinct and vulnerable population in a morally dangerous and increasingly adult urban society. The romantic desire to ‘protect’ children from the ill effects of modern urban life was, in the context of the child rescue efforts of 1870 to 1914, underpinned by a desire to produce useful, morally upright, and productive citizens of future generations. Those children who were deemed physically or mentally incapable of

relating to her war service. Of her purpose in keeping a diary Fitzgerald writes very self-consciously, apparently intending her record of the war to be read by future generations. Although she made a number of attempts to find a publisher, the memoir remained unpublished and is now lodged in the Maryland Historical Society Archives in Baltimore, USA.55 The only extant, published writings belonging to her consist of a set of letters to her Boston committee, published by committee members in 1917, as The Edith Cavell Nurse from Massachusetts, in an obvious attempt to gain

depended upon many hours of volunteer labour. Soon after the First World War the IODE realized that canadianization would be more influential if continued beyond the spaces of ports and stations. The IODE followed eugenic reasoning and urged intervention to improve and absorb the ‘racial’ qualities of future generations, both physically and mentally. This was particularly

were born. Eight participants, aged between sixty-four and seventy-seven, wrote that they had been born close to the time of the NHS’s inception, and suggested that this may have given them a special sense of connection with the institution. One such respondent hoped that the NHS would continue to ‘care for future generations as it has cared for mine since the year I was born – 1948’. Others wrote that ‘I was born in it, and hope my grand-children can be too’ and that ‘I was born in 1948 like the NHS’. One

Costin ( 2015 ) avers that to invest in young children through ECD programmes, such as child-friendly play spaces, the right nurturing and nutrition and so forth, is one of the best investments a country can make to address inequality, break the

future generations. Every Jew who enters the cemetery sees the two tombstones containing the well-known story of the treacherous behavior of the apostate Jew against a prominent Jewish leader. In the middle of the seventeenth century, Rabbi Yuzfa Shemesh writes that ‘a certain apostate informer denounced him to the King of Rome.’13 It is this perception that accompanies the Jewish apostate from Rothenburg’s time onwards, and it finds expression in the growth of folk stories literature. Towards the end of the thirteenth and the beginning of the fourteenth centuries, we

see how my trans sisters lived during that time. Nowadays, there are people like me who fight for a better life for our future generations!!’ (‘The Salt Mines & The Transformation’, 2017). The film has become part of today’s trans movement through repeated screenings. It shows both how much the trans community has mobilised since 1990 but also how vulnerabilities are still disproportionally distributed to trans women of colour. While the film may have made its subjects more vulnerable in some ways, by bringing their lives to the notice of family members and the

–187). I find this an attractive proposal. A lot of details would have to be worked out. Should the representatives of citizens who are not members of the demos have veto power or rather the power of legislative proposal, or both? Would the powers of such special representatives be limited to certain policy areas that are specifically relevant for children? If we consider children's interests as continuous with those of future generations of
