Migrating to a different country can be difficult, especially when attempting to start a business. Africans who migrate to the UK manage to negotiate and forge relationships among themselves and with the members of their host society. In doing so, they not only demonstrate tactics to form self-employment relationships, but they also unveil socio-cultural patterns and identity formation. The Evolution of Black African Entrepreneurship in the UK explains why people leave Africa, what they encounter, their interactions with the host community, their strategies of inclusion, and perceived exclusions from the mainstream of British society. This publication also provides information on the social changes and policies that African countries are adopting to negotiate the immigration and emigration processes of the diaspora communities. Illustrating multiple aspects of Black African entrepreneurship that serve as a vehicle not only for self-employment relationships but also for the unveiling of socio-cultural patterns and identity formation, this publication covers gender biases, forced vs. voluntary migration, and diaspora entrepreneurship. It is designed for policymakers, managers, entrepreneurs, consultants, practitioners, professionals, scholars, students, and researchers.

In this groundbreaking book, Nira Yuval-Davis provides a cutting-edge investigation of the challenging debates around belonging and the politics of belonging. Alongside the hegemonic forms of citizenship and nationalism which have tended to dominate our recent political and social history, the author examines alternative contemporary political projects of belonging constructed around the notions of religion, cosmopolitanism, and the feminist ‘ethics of care’. The book also explores the effects of globalization, mass migration, the rise of both fundamentalist and human rights movements on such politics of belonging, as well as some of its racialized and gendered dimensions. A special space is given to the various feminist political movements that have been engaged as part of or in resistance to the political projects of belonging.

This is a multi-author volume resulted from an international conference focusing on topics related to our understanding of the role of China in the global history. Apart from introductory chapters exploring methodological issues and providing big pictures of framing China in the world in particular time zones, this volume also covers rich discussions on the following themes from the ancient period to the twentieth century: organized water transport, cultural interactions, navigators, port cities, smuggling activities, customs service, foreign relations, migration, and diasporas. Written by scholars of different generations who are based in diverse regions including Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, the UK and the US, the chapters in this volume either address old questions from new perspectives, or table new topics that were largely ignored in previous scholarship. Some go further to brainstorm possible research directions in the future. This thought-provoking volume will be beneficial to readers who are interested in rethinking China's position in the global historical stage against the backdrop of Post-Orientalism.

Die hier versammelten Beiträge spiegeln den aktuellen Stand der Debatte um Intersektionalität 20 Jahre nach Prägung des Begriffes im Schwarzen Feminismus in den USA. Bei seiner transatlantischen Reise durchlief der Ansatz Metamorphosen und fiel in Europa auf vorbereiteten Boden, insbesondere in anglophonen und deutschsprachigen feministischen Diskursen. Klasse, Geschlecht, Ethnizität und „Rasse“, Sexualität, Behinderung, Alter und andere Dimensionen von Ungleichheit und Identität werden inzwischen in intersektioneller Perspektive untersucht. In diesem Band wird der Ansatz vorgestellt und in transdisziplinären und transnationalen Analyseperspektiven wie Diskurstheorie, Biographieforschung, Wissenssoziologie, Rahmenanalyse und Sozialstrukturanalyse verortet; auch werden kritische Interventionen zu Problemen und Grenzen dieses Konzepts diskutiert.

"Neue Autorität" in der Schule

Präsenz und Beziehung im Schulalltag

Was tun, wenn Schüler den Unterricht stören, streiten, provozieren, die Mitarbeit verweigern oder dem Unterricht fernbleiben – drohen und bestrafen? Es gibt auch einen Weg des gewaltfreien Widerstands, den Lehrer, Schulen und Eltern gehen können. Martin Lemme und Bruno Körner wenden dafür das Konzept der "Neuen Autorität", das ursprünglich von Haim Omer erdacht wurde, auf die Schule an. Autorität wird hier nicht als Eigenschaft zum Zwecke der Machtdemonstration verstanden, sondern als Haltung: Durch Beziehungsgestaltung, Transparenz und die Bereitschaft, sich intensiv und demonstrativ auseinanderzusetzen, entsteht zwischen Lehrer und Schüler eine tragfähige Beziehung. Diese Präsenz stärkt die Autorität des Lehrers, des Kollegiums, der Schule und auch die der Eltern. Die Autoren erläutern das Konzept verständlich, praxisnah und anhand vieler eigener Erfahrungen. Ein Leitfaden rundet den Spickzettel ab, sodass im Schulalltag Hilfe schnell griffbereit ist. "Martin Lemme und Bruno Körner haben die meiste Erfahrung in der Darstellung der praktischen Umsetzung des Konzeptes 'Neuen Autorität' in der Schule." Haim Omer
