Analyzes contemporary rights-based and economic approaches to health care and education in developing countries. Assesses the foundations and uses of social rights in development, outlines an economic approach to improving health and education service provision, and then highlights differences, similarities, and the hard questions that the economic critique poses for rights. Argues that the policy consequences of rights overlap considerably with a modern economic approach.

The debate on globalization, poverty and inequality: why measurement matters

Provides a non-technical overview of the conceptual and methodological issues underlying the markedly different claims that have been heard within the development community about how just much progress is being made against poverty and inequality in the current period of “globalization.” Argues that the dramatically differing positions taken in this debate often stem from differences in the concepts and definitions used and differences in data sources and measurement assumptions, differences that are often hidden from view in the debate, but that need to be considered carefully if one is to properly interpret the evidence. Also argues that the best available evidence suggests that, if the rate of progress against absolute poverty in the developing world in the 1990s is maintained, then the Millennium Development Goal of halving the 1990 aggregate poverty rate by 2015 will be achieved on time in the aggregate, though not in all regions. Concludes with some observations on the implications for policy-oriented debates on globalization and pro-poor growth.

Broadening the Mandate of CHERA/ACRES to CAHSPR/ACRSPS
 
Background: The health care landscape in Canada has undergone dramatic transformations in the past decade, with important implications for research and decision-making in health services, health economics, and health policy domains.
There has been a growing need for a national broad-based interdisciplinary health services and policy research association to support practitioners, users and students of health research to enhance their research capacity and professional development. In response to this, a new membership-based health services association is launched.
The new Association called the Health Research / Association canadienne pour la recherche sur les services et les politiques de la santé (CAHSPR/ACRSPS), will replace the Canadian Health Economics Research Association/ Association Canadienne pour la Recherche en Économie de la Santé (CHERA/ACRES). The aim will be to enhance research capacity within both the researcher and "research user" communities.

The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) is the recognized regional voice for the advancement of First Nations’ women’s and children’s rights in Saskatchewan. The SFNWC is committed to the development and sustenance of healthy communities by which all First Nations people benefit. The SFNWC takes the lead on certain issues that are considered “women’s and children’s issues” in mainstream society, although not dictated as such in First Nations communities because First Nations philosophy emphasizes collective as opposed to individual rights.

 

Historically, since the 1960’s First Nations’ Women in Saskatchewan have come together to discuss a variety of issues and the poor living conditions in which they had to endure. The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) was formed in 2000, first as a Council, and in February 2004, the Chiefs-in-Assembly voted for the FSIN Convention Act to be amended to include the SFNWC as the seventh Commission. The FSIN Women’s Act was ratified at the June 2004 Chiefs-in-Assembly and is a formal piece of legislation that validates the ongoing movement of Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women.

 

Honoring the Treaties is a priority for Saskatchewan First Nations’ women's groups. The mandate of the Saskatchewan First Nations Women’s Commission is the development of First Nation Women’s rights and advocate to develop women’s strategic initiatives while respecting the Treaty process. In the past we have ensured this vision is met through:
