Governance and public policy in Canada : a view from the provinces by Michael M Atkinson( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three key themes unify this book. First, it addresses the role of policy convergence and divergence among provinces. Although the analysis acknowledges enduring differences in political culture and institutions, it also points to patterns of policy diffusion and convergence in specific areas in a number of provinces. Second, the book explores the push and pull between centralization and decentralization in Canada as it affects intergovernmental relations. Third, it underscores that although the provinces play a greater role in policy development than ever before, they now face a growing tension between their expanding policy ambitions and their capacity to develop, fund, implement, manage, and evaluate policy programs. Governance and Public Policy in Canada describes how the provincial state has adapted in the context of these changing circumstances to transcend its limited capacity while engaging with a growing number of civil society actors, policy networks, and intergovernmental bodies."--pub. desc

Saskatchewan's regional colleges : towards a new system : Regional College Review final report by Michael M Atkinson( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A statutory requirement of the Regional Colleges Act is a five-year review of the regional colleges' mandate to ensure that the system continues to provide efficient and high-quality educational programming and post-secondary training opportunities to adult learners across Saskatchewan. The report begins with a summary statement of its overarching theme and a brief outline of the documentary and interview sources that gave rise to the report's general direction. It turns then to the broad environment and a profile of the colleges. The remaining sections of the report take up the issue of efficiency and effectiveness, the tensions that arosen over the past decade or more, and the difficult policy questions they pose. In the final section of the report a set of recommendations is provided.--Includes text from document
Discrepancies in corruption perceptions, or, Why is Canada so corrupt? by Michael M Atkinson( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1984 and again in 2006, Canadians went to the polls in the shadow of charges of ethical impropriety. During the years spanning the governments of Brian Mulroney, Jean Chretien and Paul Martin, there were twenty-three episodes in which plausible accusations of ethical breeches were leveled and in several cases sustained. Survey research shows clearly that a large proportion of Canadians see their politicians and their institutions as fundamentally corrupt. Yet international corruption indices place Canada consistently among the lowest ranked countries. Why do Canadians see their country as corrupt, but informed international observers do not?
Tattooed : the sociogenesis of a body art by Michael Atkinson( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2020 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tattoos have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among young people. While tattooing is used as a symbol of personal identity and social communication, there has been little sociological study of the phenomenon. In Tattooed: The Sociogenesis of a Body Art, tattoo enthusiasts share their stories about their bodies and tattooing experiences. Michael Atkinson shows how enthusiasts negotiate and celebrate their 'difference' as it relates to the social stigma attached to body art - how the act of tattooing is as much a response to the stigma as it is a form of personal expression - and how a generation has appropriated tattooing as its own symbol of inclusiveness. Atkinson further demonstrates how the displaying of tattooed bodies to others - techniques of disclosure, justification, and representation - has become a part of the shared experience.Cultural sensibilities about tattooing are discussed within historical context and in relation to broader trends in body modification, such as cosmetic surgery, dieting, and piercing. The author also employs research from a number of disciplines, as well as contemporary sociological and postmodern theory to analyse the enduring social significance of body art
