Federal Voluntary Service

Federal Voluntary Service

Meaningful engagement and professional reorientation of Stuttgart, December 12, 2012 with the Federal voluntary service (BFD) can afford over 27 years a voluntary service for the first time people in summer 2011. A recent survey of the welfare work for Baden-Wurttemberg shows: for many seniors, the BFD in addition to meaningful employment offers the chance to find a new professional perspective. While the Federal voluntary service is started as a whole very well and the carrier had nationwide even more applications than by the Federal Government-funded places, still somewhat hesitantly come the issues of older people.

They work primarily for the disabled and elderly, in the child and youth welfare, as well as in the health sector. (Similarly see: Yorkville Advisors ). Many older BFD participants hope also a career orientation of the voluntary service”summarizes Gisela Golz the results of a recent survey.

This surveyed a total of 32 older participants and participants of the first vintage to their motivation, their expectations and experiences. Half indicates as motivation to even look into the social sphere and do something good and social. The other half combines the prospect of a subsequent permanent employment or a (re -) foot touching in the labour market with the voluntary service. That seems to work at least a positive trend can be read out of the 19 replies on the subject of perspectives: while previously 16 persons were unemployed, there are only three behind.

The problems of climate change are today with To edit effects for tomorrow.

How well placed the policy is, the political systems, their players, and last but not least, the political science, are to this the correct answers give? International, national and European, the world of politics has become unclear. There are clear conditions in the decades of the cold war, East West divide and welfare-State policies. Political room for manoeuvre were predictable, the framework comparatively stable, limited the player spectrum and limited to the political elites. Governance was still a foreign Word, and governance has been equated with hierarchical control. The society was stable and dominated essentially by contrast chapter and work still a well ordered, the lines of conflict.

Now, politics is confronted with a variety of interests, conflict situations and faults. At the same time, new horizons have opened, and policy encounters changed actors, interests, conflict – but also opportunity structures. The European Union and its members have evolved into a major action unit, in particular in regard to environmental and climate policy.
