Missing Out: A Praise of the Unlived Life

In Missing Out, acclaimed psychoanalyst Adam Phillips delves into the gap between who we are and who we are not, to discover whether not getting what we want may be the unlikely key to the fully lived life.

Gender and Socio-Economic Wellbeing of Older Persons in Nigeria

Gender and Socio-Economic Wellbeing of Older Persons in Nigeria

National and international organizations continue to express concerns on older persons worldwide, and have suggested measures for improving their lives and overall well-being within the framework of sustainable development. Citizenship cannot be assumed to have the same significance for the young and old. A common experience is that of disentitlements of the older persons regarding their persons and other rights. Theoretically, older persons are not a homogenous group. It has been observed that the gender of the individual affects access and opportunities to the available old age security system. This study focuses on the differentials in the situations and capabilities of older persons in Lagos State rather than viewing them as a homogeneous group. Gender is particularly believed to be implicated in the varying experiences of older persons. Inequalities experienced in earlier life, for example in access to education, employment, and health care, as well as those based on gender which have a critical bearing on status and well being in old age were critically examined.

Electoral Participation Of Persons With Disabilities In Ethiopia

Electoral Participation Of Persons With Disabilities In Ethiopia

In the 21st century where people are becoming the ultimate sources of political power, it is hard for a country to call itself as a democracy without maintaining participatory and inclusive political environment in its polity. With these points in mind, this work is intended to scrutinize the political role of persons with disabilities in the Ethiopian politics only to the extent of their participation as voters, candidates for elections and as members of different political parties.This is with a prior fact that almost 10% of the total population of the country is covered by these people. Accordingly, any electoral proceedings are required to be held in the manner that can ensure the active involvement of these people in the game. Though there are conceptual transformations in approaching disability from the medical and charity perceptions to those of social and human rights approaches at the international level, the country and the society at large does not seem to coup up with such changes. Taking into consideration of these and related challenges, the author suggested valuable recommendations with specific reference to the directly responsible stakeholders.
