Respect for diversity has been established as a core value for Community Psychology, as indicated in Chapter 1 Jason et al. Appreciating diversity in communities includes understanding dimensions of diversity and how to work within diverse community contexts, but also includes a consideration of how to work within systems of inequality. Community psychologists must be mindful of diverse perspectives and experiences when conducting research and designing interventions, as well as working to combat oppression and promote justice and equality. By working within a framework of cultural humility, this chapter attempts to provide a basic understanding of the dimensions of diversity that are most common in Community Psychology research and practice. Further, we explore how these dimensions contribute to complex identities and considerations for community practice.
Abstract: After having reviewed some of the most widely used empirical indicators of social justice and well-being, we discuss the shift from utilitarianism to egalitarianism in the philosophical debate on distributive justice, the Science and Technology Study and feminist approaches to social justice, and account for recent efforts in empirically mapping subjective well-being. We draw on these approaches to evaluate the efficacy of different economic systems in bringing about social justice and well-being. Among other things we focus on the experience of the Nordic countries in achieving high levels of economic development combined with social equality. We argue that the basic tenets of their model can be used in developing countries. The problem is not economic feasibility, but maybe political feasibility. In particular, we explore how egalitarian wage compression can enhance technological innovation and productivity, and how welfare spending may fit well into a progressive development strategy even in poor countries. We also discuss concrete examples of ownership models alternative to the standard capitalistic model.
Preface to Public Economics 3rd Edition About the Author — Dr Peter Abelson. Part 1 of the book lays the foundations for a study of government and the economy. This involves understanding the political environment. However, just as politics is important to economics, so economics is important for government. A theme of the book is that standard economic principles apply as strongly to the actions and decisions of government as they do to markets. Chapter 1 sets out these foundations of public economics.

Gatewatching and News Curation: Journalism, Social Media, and the Public Sphere documents an emerging news media environment that is characterised by an increasingly networked and social structure. In this environment, professional journalists and non-professional news users alike are increasingly cast in the role of gatewatcher and news curator, and sometimes accept these roles with considerable enthusiasm. A growing part of their everyday activities takes place within the spaces operated by the major social media providers, where platform features outside of their control affect how they can post, find, access, share, curate, and otherwise engage with news, rumours, analysis, comments, opinion, and related forms of information.
The several groups and individuals including Adivasis, Dalits, Muslims and women have taken a step forward to protest against the existing inequalities. All of them were always of the opinion that they possess equal rights as all other, being rightful citizens of a democratic country. The constitution lays down a list of fundamental rights that are available to all citizens equally. The marginalised sector has gained these rights in two ways, mainly, forcing the government to realise the injustice done to them by insisting on the fundamental rights.
This book brings together an international selection of prominent researchers at the forefront of this development. They reflect on the issue of individuality in the group and on how thinking about social identity has changed.

NCBI Bookshelf. Over the past decade, many ethical, legal, and social implications ELSI associated with genetic testing and research have been raised. In order for genetic testing to be used safely and appropriately, these issues should be discussed with patients so that they are aware of the risks and benefits associated with testing. This chapter provides a brief overview of these issues with descriptions of some of the major ELSI concerns related to genetic testing. Several major concerns have arisen regarding the use and potential misuse of genetic information. Genetic information may differ from other health information because of its long-term implications for an individual and his or her family. Issues span from analytical and clinical validity of a genetic test to potential discrimination by health insurers or employers to the duty to disclose genetic information to potentially affected family members.
