  4. Medical professionalism undermined in armed conflicts [Response to: Doctors in Syria are forced to treat patients in secret, charity says]

    Ahmadi, Keivan; Cheah, C H; Soyiri, Ireneous N
    The medical professionalism is grossly undermined in the current situation in Syria.Cruess et al. described medical professionalism as an idea to be sustained (1) and this cannot be achieved unless there are structural supports available and functional. Creating long list of attributes on medical education and professionalism alone (2) would not do any better in real health work environment or in extra-ordinary situations. Syria is not the first state violating the code of ethics in the medical field and may not be the last. Almost a year ago the World Medical Association (WMA) issued a resolution on Bahrain (3), demanding...

  8. Why our universities should be protected: the activist and student fees

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    My own alma mater lies thousands of miles away and is currently caught in the throes of celebration after winning an intensive campaign against the suppression of human rights and house arrest. It is also the alma mater of Aung San Suu Kyi , the Burmese Nobel Peace Prize winner pro activist who has been fighting for democracy and who was placed under house arrest for the last 15 years. Our educational experiences were separated by over a decade and half yawning between us yet there is comfort in the fact that the classrooms of my university might have fostered...

  9. The etymology of sovereign crises and the random walk

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    The last decade, it appears, has spawned a new generation of sovereign crises called the liquidity crises (for example in India, Asian Tigers, Russia and Turkey). These are quite different from debt crisis (such as those in Mexico, Indonesia and Sub Saharan Africa), where repayment is impossible or near impossible. Unlike the chronic problems beset by debt crises, liquidity crises are maladies which can affect the rich and the comparatively well-heeled. They are characterised, as the name suggests, by lack of cash and can strike quite suddenly but are often cured by simple injections of cash given by a global...

  10. Islands in the stream: why mutual cooperation is necessary in the Irish sovereign crisis

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Countries like companies are going bust these days. The global system is so intertwined that systemic shocks affect countries like ninepins. Some time ago it was specific risks and debt mismanagement which afflicted countries but currently it is systemic risk which has taken precedent. Like the oil shock of the seventies, it is now the banks that have become the new grenade which is exploding in the front rooms of European countries like Ireland.

  11. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak: a wildebeest in the making?

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Last week, Ireland’s attempts to burden itself with further cuts did not impress and the markets remain inured to the self-inflicted fiscal measures. Over the weekend, Ireland has been granted a reprieve with a bailout of $89 billion jointly administered by the European Commission, Bilateral Aid and the International Monetary Fund. On Sunday evening, the global politicians held their breath to watch the reaction to this bailout as they waited first for the Asian markets to react and subsequently the European markets. The reception has been warm but time will tell whether enough has been done.

  12. Diversify, diversify and diversify: the renaissance of UK industry

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Yesterday, the debutante bail-out bond for the Euro-zone was hailed as a hit for the fashion parade that might follow. Japan’s interest of 20% in the bond signals that the rest of the world might have hope for the future of Europe. Where does the UK stand in all this? The yield of the bail-out bond is currently lower than the yield of the UK bond. This signals the relatively higher trust the market has in the bail-out nations rather than in the UK. We have learnt that the financial world are fickle stewards and are perfect examples of the problems...

  13. Contagion, cooperation and sovereign debt: the Greek crisis

    Lakshmi, Geeta
    Sovereign debt is not a zero sum game: everyone takes on the pain. The question is how much more the Greeks are prepared to take in the form of austerity measures. As the country is perched on the precipice of default, it is looking at offers to stave off default. All of them come with conditions of shared pain. Greece might prefer to default and write off some of the debt as any further offer would come with additional debt service obligation, but any rollover would be accompanied by more promises of stringent public spending. On the other hand, it...

    This literature review is one of a series of projects jointly commissioned by DCSF and DH to improve the evidence base on recognition, effective intervention and inter-agency working in child abuse and explores the concept of 'neglect' as it applies to adolescents.

The review considers the practice, policy and research implications of the literature, and has also informed other products of this project - a...
