Politics of globalization implies existence of a beneficiary and the supplier. In the entire transaction of business the beneficiary located in one nation state or in all nation-states of world. This paper argues that the globalization discourse in India is sustained by the argument of that globalization benefiting ‘G-8’ countries and so also only 50 percent of the population of India accepts. But it is being pushed through legal tangles, political tradeoffs and ultimately the ‘other’ ‘50 percent’ are made to accept the globalization.</p> 2017-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ephjournal.com/index.php/hss/article/view/423 Women's integration into the police: an examination of gender perceptions in the field of law 2017-12-31T11:19:33+00:00 Laliv Cohen -Israeli lalivc@netvision.co.il <p><em>This study focuses on women's integration in "male" (perceived) professions, and seeks to&nbsp;</em><em>determine whether affirmative action also affects the way members of the Police Legal Unit&nbsp;</em><em>perceive one another. The research examine whether the legal profession has become gender&nbsp;</em><em>indistinct at the personal, perceptive level.</em><br><em>The findings show no gender differences in professionalism. The conclusion is important&nbsp;</em><em>for women in the Police force in particular, and women professionals in general. However, what&nbsp;</em><em>is of equal significance is that it is also of value for male professionals, as outdated stereotypical&nbsp;</em><em>myths are exploded. One implication of the findings is that given identical roles, women and&nbsp;</em><em>men are perceived as professionally similar.&nbsp;</em></p> 2017-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://ephjournal.com/index.php/hss/article/view/424 The road to social justice and labour welfare through the Employee’s State Insurance Act, 1948 and judicial contribution 2018-01-03T07:39:33+00:00 Raman Sharma no_reply@ephjournal.com <p><em>The Employees State Insurances Act, 1948 is social welfare legislation aimed at&nbsp;</em><em>ensuring certain benefits to all covered employees( medical care and cash allowance during&nbsp;</em><em>sickness, maternity and employment injury, pension for dependents on the death of the worker&nbsp;</em><em>due to employment injury, and funeral benefit towards the expenditure on the funeral of an&nbsp;</em><em>insured person), the benefits are provided through dispensaries and hospitals set up by the&nbsp;</em><em>Employees State Insurance Corporation.
