Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to question the terminology, modelling and vagueness surrounding the notion of “global citizen” and argues for the more holistic construct of global selfhood as a legitimate goal for graduates who must make their way in a multicultural and globalising world.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper draws upon established education and global citizenship theories to present a model of global graduate attributes. Using this theoretical model, practice implications for learning and teaching in higher education are presented.

Findings

This paper proposes some radical transformations to current practice.

Practical implications

Proposals within the paper offer academics and academic developers tools for reflection on and transformation of practice.

Originality/value

This paper takes forward the often reductive construct of “global citizen” and demonstrates how a more holistic notion of global self can be applied to higher education and graduate outcomes.

Abstract

The social, economic and political context of African societies in the wake of various European intrusions has set the scene for post‐independent western‐African relationships. The purpose of this paper is to examine the intentions and policies of developed countries and international agencies to the third world, using as an example a report evaluating aid to Mozambique. A textual analysis of the report will further explore the relationship between aid policies and western‐Mozambican relationships. It will be argued that however destructive pre‐independence relationships with colonial powers were for African societies, post‐colonial demands by western powers in return for aid were far more intrusive, requiring more total subversion of traditional economies to western neo‐liberal economic models.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the implementation of effective risk‐based anti‐money laundering (AML)/combating the financing of terrorism (CFT) systems of control in order to properly address the risks facing the financial services industry. It seeks to argue that most systems of controls currently in place are ineffective and bureaucratic and do not address the real risks.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper outlines the recent history of AML/CFT measures and the underlying reasons for their adoption. It then argues that if risk‐based is to be adopted a methodology to address the risks must first be designed. The paper outlines the pre‐requisites for the design of such a system and the factors that need to be considered for implementation. The paper highlights the need for regulators to fall in line with the risk‐based approach and to pass back to senior management responsibility for the implementation of systems of control which are appropriate and proportionate.

Findings

Most of the current systems of control in AML/CFT are driven by regulatory requirements and not an understanding of the risk facing the firm.

Originality/value

The paper is original work of the Financial Services Commission in its entirety.

Abstract

The librarian and researcher have to be able to uncover specific articles in their areas of interest. This Bibliography is designed to help. Volume IV, like Volume III, contains features to help the reader to retrieve relevant literature from MCB University Press' considerable output. Each entry within has been indexed according to author(s) and the Fifth Edition of the SCIMP/SCAMP Thesaurus. The latter thus provides a full subject index to facilitate rapid retrieval. Each article or book is assigned its own unique number and this is used in both the subject and author index. This Volume indexes 29 journals indicating the depth, coverage and expansion of MCB's portfolio.

Abstract

Purpose

Despite being a widely used management technique, cumulative sum (CUSUM) analysis remains almost unheard of in professional sport. To address this, CUSUM analysis of soccer match data from the English Premier League (EPL) was performed. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate CUSUM as a tool for assessing “on-field” team performance. As a secondary objective, the association between managerial change and team performance was evaluated.

Design/methodology/approach

CUSUM was applied retrospectively to goal difference data for six EPL teams (Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham) over 23 consecutive seasons from 1995 to 2018. This was supplemented with change point analysis to identify structural changes in mean goal difference. Succession was evaluated by mapping historical managerial changes onto the CUSUM plots for the respective clubs.

Findings

CUSUM analysis revealed the presence of structural changes in four clubs. Two structural change points were identified for both Chelsea and Everton, one for Manchester United and Tottenham and none for Arsenal and Liverpool. Relatively few managerial changes coincided temporally with structural changes in “on-field” performance, with most appointments having minimal impact on long-term team performance. Other factors (e.g. changes in ownership) appear to have been influential.

Research limitations/implications

The study was limited by the fact that only successful teams were investigated.

Practical implications

CUSUM analysis appears to have potential as a tool for executive decision-makers to evaluate performance outcomes in professional soccer.

Originality/value

The study is the first of its kind to use CUSUM analysis to evaluate team performance in professional soccer.

Abstract

This paper discusses the role of Albert O. Hirschman as a founder of development economics in the postwar years. Although Hirschman maintained a strong interest in development matters throughout his entire professional career, his major contributions to development economics took place between the mid-1950s and the late 1960s. The paper examines Hirschman’s innovative contributions to the new discipline. When, in the 1950s, development economics gravitated around the concept of “balanced growth,” Hirschman opened new vistas with a theory of “unbalanced growth.” In the early 1960s, Hirschman focused on reformist political approaches to development, against the opposed extremisms of reaction and revolution. Finally, in the late 1960s, Hirschman opened new perspectives on the importance of detailed analysis of development projects, against the theoretical drift of early development economics.

The discussion of Hirschman’s development career is also an opportunity to observe the gap between theoretical debates and development policies. Whereas development economists often clashed on theoretical issues, their views were remarkably closer on practical questions.

As a pioneer of development economics, Hirschman sought to establish it as a discipline theoretically distinct from mainstream economics. By the 1980s, this project had collapsed, and the development question was reabsorbed by the economic mainstream. This article, however, argues that current development debates remain deeply indebted to Hirschman’s contribution. His reformist vision, rejection of one-size-fits-all solutions, his insistence on the ineluctable role of uncertainty, and his search for country-specific, incremental, and evolutionary policies make his approach central to current development discourse.
