NGOs and Accountability in China Child Welfare Organisations

NGOs and Accountability in China: Child Welfare Organisations By Jude Howell
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 235 Pages | ISBN : 3319902202 | 3.36 MB
This book investigates how NGOs in authoritarian states, such as China, craft accountability and legitimacy to ensure their survival. It explores this through the lens of child welfare organisations from 2007 to 2017. The authors provide a fresh approach to accountability that is more attuned to the particular conditions of authoritarianism. The project explores the effects of power relations in shaping the hierarchies of accountability and participation that emerge and the attention given to different voices such as those of donor, government, and users. Essential reading for researchers and policy makers interested in development, NGO, social policy, political science, and child welfare studies.

Sexual Crime and Circles of Support and Accountability
Sexual Crime and Circles of Support and Accountability By Helen Elliott
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 223 Pages | ISBN : 331974822X | 3.76 MB


This book offers a collection of original contributions to current research available on Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) by engaging with current literature and unpublished research in the field. The book explores the role of narrative identity in desistance from sexual crime and how CoSA maps onto this, as well as a history of CoSA across the world. The text then moves into an empirical section, reporting on some unpublished findings, including an evaluation of a new prison-based CoSA in the UK. Lastly, the experiences of service users and the influence of media perceptions are explored, offering a space for the ‘unheard voices' as well as consideration of future directions for practitioners. The book is relevant not just to psychologists, criminologists, social workers and students, but to practitioners and the general public with an interest in learning about CoSA.

English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 352 Pages | ISBN : 3319660497 | 3.99 MB
This book contrasts authentic approaches to education with classroom practices based primarily on standards external to the individuals who are supposed to learn. While other books tend to promote either a desperate scramble for meeting standards or determined resistance to neoliberal reforms, this book fills that gap in ways that will inspire practitioners, prospective teachers, and teacher educators.

Public Services Delivery (Public Sector Governance and Accountability) by Anwar Shah
English | June 23, 2005 | ISBN: 0821361406 | 262 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
The globalization of information?satellite TV, internet, phone and fax?serve to enhance citizens' awareness of their rights, obligations, options and alternatives and strengthens demands for greater accountability from the public sector. However, the power of accountability is significantly reduced if citizens are unable to measure their government's performance in a meaningful way, which is precisely the topic of this timely book. The abstract concept of 'government performance' can only be an effective tool in public debate when there are concrete statistics measuring performance and benchmarks against which current indicators can be compared.
