  • Occupational health: the impact of occupational stressors on job
           productivity

    • Abstract: Occupational health is assessing and managing the effects of work on an individual’s health and effects of their health on their capability to work. Occupational stress plays a prominent role in employee productivity. Studies on occupational stress among administrative personals in Sri Lanka are inadequate. The general objective of the study was to investigate the impact of occupational stressors on the job productivity of administrative staff in the newly established public sector universities in Sri Lanka. The study design was hypothetico-deductive. The task (task autonomy, task variety, task overload, working conditions, physical work layout, facilities provided, noises and continuous interruptions), role (role conflicts, role overload, role ambiguity, proactive coping behaviours, situational constraints, employee hassles and employee harassments), and interpersonal demands (support provided by the staff, pressure created by the staff) were considered as independent variables. Productivity was the dependent variable (Efficiency: availability of quality standards, guidelines and benchmarks; Effectiveness: action plans, monitoring procedures and controlling mechanisms). Ninety-two administrative officers were selected from the newly established public sector universities as the sample. A self-administrated questionnaire was applied to collect data. Four hypotheses were developed, and data was analysed through the SPSS package. Pearson’s correlation, determinant of coefficient, Model summary and ANOVA for multiple regression were used to analyse data. Positive relationships of the favorable task, role and interpersonal demands with job productivity were observed. Variance in job productivity was significantly explained by the variables associated with occupational stressors. In conclusion, conducting longitudinal or interventional studies to address occupational stressors is recommended. Published on 2021-12-29 00:00:00
       
  • Democracy and the challenges of globalisation: a theoretical framework

    • Abstract: Globalization is an increasingly broad, dynamic and complex phenomenon. Given the previous context and in an attempt to reduce its complexity, the underlying objective of this article is to contribute to a broader and more comprehensive discussion on globalization in the light of the theme, democracy. We used a qualitative, exploratory and descriptive methodology, which focused on a theoretical analysis through a systematic literature review. The systematic review made it possible to synthesize the existing literature in order to provide a holistic view of the phenomenon. Therefore, our intention is to present a theoretical framework on the dimensions that contain the essence of globalization in a postmodern version of democracy. The results suggest that there are no unambiguous metrics to measure the impact of globalization. In that regard, it is essential to recognise globalization as an opportunity and not as a threat, being aware of the underlying inequalities and the risks that they can pose to democratic states. Future studies can analyse the impact of the dimensions identified in this article and examine the differences within different countries and cultural contexts. The identification of opportunities that globalization creates, as well as ways to mitigate possible inequalities and risks, can be useful in looking for new scientific and academic ventures.

  • Social reasons for and repercussions of judicial delays in Subordinate
           Courts of Karachi: the need for sociological analysis

    • Abstract: The problem of judicial delays is universal. It is a phenomenon that occurs across the world in all judicial systems. Being a developing country, the issue of judicial delays is also a persistent issue in the justice dispensing system of Pakistan. This study aims to find out the reasons for and repercussions of the process of judicial delays from a socio-legal perspective and highlights the need for a sociological analysis for the same. In a quantitative approach, this study was conducted in the lower courts of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The study reveals that in addition to administrative and procedural hindrances, the social reasons are also contributing to the phenomenon of delays of proceedings in the judiciary. Poverty, corruption, discrimination, and friendship are among these social reasons, whereas the adoption of unrecognised ways of dispute solutions like jirga and panchayat, loss of public trust, individual disorganisation and financial damages are identified as the social repercussions of judicial delays. Finally, the research identifies that judicial delays are a social problem and further investigations are required to determine possible remedies. Published on 2021-12-29 00:00:00
       
  • Dropping out of school at secondary level: an exploratory study

    • Abstract: Though primary and secondary dropout rates are low in Sri Lanka, given the government delivered free education and schooling expenditure related subsidies accessible to all children, even some children being out of school, is a concern. Further, Sri Lanka is a signatory to the Sustainable Development Goals commitment to achieving inclusive and equitable quality education for all by year 2030. Literature indicates that poverty and failures in education performance, to be the dominant factors affecting leaving education. However, the nexus between abandoning education and early marriage or cohabitation is also an issue less discussed in the local literature. This study attempts to understand this nexus and its implications for policy and interventions for prevention of permanent discontinuation of schooling. The study adopted a mixed methods research approach, and is based on data collected in the Dimbulagala Education Zone in Polonnaruwa District of Sri Lanka. The study found poverty to be the leading factor causing children to leave school, but mismanagement of relationships with the opposite sex due to their poor life skills, rejection and humiliation of such relationships by school, society and family, severe breakdown in family, school and social support structures, were also found to be factors contributing to the problem. Findings indicate the need for life skills education and the need for engagement of school, family and community in supporting children’s education. Published on 2021-12-29 00:00:00
       
  • Issues and problems faced by children in conflict with law during and
           after their detention

    • Abstract: Children coming in conflict with the law is a problem that affects not only the children but also their families, communities and the society. In the decades of conflict in Kashmir, especially after the start of the insurgency in 1989, local people have witnessed killings, injuries, arrests and illegal detentions. In 2008, people took to peaceful mass protests, which resulted in three summers of massive agitations in 2008, 2010 and 2016. The main participants of these agitations were the youth. The young age of protestors, combined with the police efforts to control the agitation, led many children to come in conflict with the law. The main topic addressed by this research is the problems and issues faced by the children in conflict with the law in Kashmir during and after their detention. A detailed legal analysis of the relevant international and national legislations and covenants is done to ascertain the standards and norms relating to juvenile justice. The methodology employed was a survey using personal interviews with such juveniles, to provide a picture of the reality as experienced by those subjected. The findings reveal that the present juvenile justice system in Kashmir has failed to implement in full the international and local legislation, particularly due to the presence of harsh emergency laws like the Armed Forces Special Protection Act (AFSPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA). Juvenile offenders are treated as adult criminals and detained in police stations or sent to jails meant for adults. During the detention, juveniles were subjected to beatings and torture, and after the detention, they faced various problems like frequent visits to courts and police stations, loss of education, problems in getting passports, jobs and other things that require police verification.

  • The ability of adolescents to recognise common indicators of mental health
           problems, and their sources of mental health knowledge

    • Abstract: There is evidence that many mental health disorders have their origin in adolescence, and that early intervention can improve long-term outcomes. Thus, it is important that adolescents are able to recognise complex indicators of mental health problems that could also be understood in the context of other issues. As such, the objectives of this study were to describe the ability of an adolescent population to recognise and attribute poor school performance, headaches, fatigue, body aches, aggression and violence, to a mental health problem. The common sources of mental health knowledge in this population were also described. This was a descriptive cross-sectional study, conducted in the Sri Jayawardenapura education zone in Sri Lanka, using a structured, pre-tested questionnaire. A multistage cluster sampling method was used with a total sample size of 1002. The results show that poor school work was attributed to a mental health problem by 56% (n=562). The attribution rates for headaches, fatigue and body aches were 42.3%, 32.7%, and 26.5%, respectively. Aggression (64.2%) and violence (66.8 %) was mostly attributed to mental health problems. The main sources of mental health knowledge were subjects taught at school (71.7%) and television (50.9%). Educating adolescents on the possibility of somatic symptoms being part of a mental health problem, and conversely understanding the contribution of other factors to aggression and violence are important. Both traditional and newer forms of media can be utilized for this purpose. Published on 2021-12-29 00:00:00
       
  • Accomplishing environmental sustainability as an ethical responsibility;
           evidence from entrepreneur engineers in Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Sustainability and entrepreneurship are two concepts widely discussed in the contemporary world. Nowadays, the concept of sustainability is merged with entrepreneurship and directs entrepreneurs into a sustainable entrepreneurial journey. Many engineers have started entrepreneurial ventures, majorly in technology disciplines in Sri Lankan and international context, which are not adequately studied in the literature. Hence, the authors have designed an exploratory study on entrepreneur engineers' ethical practices in Sri Lanka, employing grounded theory approach. The present study investigates how entrepreneur engineers in Sri Lanka accomplish environmental sustainability as an ethical responsibility. Data were collected from purposively sampled fifteen entrepreneur engineers in Sri Lanka by conducting face to face semi-structured interviews. Voice recorded interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed following grounded theory techniques with the support of NVivo software. The analysis has revealed that entrepreneurial engineers who participated in this study had a higher personal commitment to environmental sustainability while trying to accomplish sustainability by educating, introducing novel methods, planting trees, system optimisation, reusing, and recycling. Orientation towards sustainability has affected the entrepreneurial performances of a few of them too. Emerging entrepreneur engineers can utilise the findings of this study to contribute further to environmental sustainability through their business operations while achieving business success. Further studies can be conducted to expand the knowledge base of entrepreneur engineers' sustainable entrepreneurship while identifying profitable ways of establishing sustainable practices based on the findings of this study using qualitative and quantitative techniques.
