Gender and the Public Sector: Professionals and Managerial Change

By Jim Barry; Mike Dent et al. | Go to book overview

Notes
1
Durkheim was directly critical of the notion that 'the [French] government is the only translator of general wills' (Lukes 1975:273).
2
'Entry into the social game' has parallels with the notion of responsible autonomy (Friedman 1977; Dent 1993:249) as well as being consonant with 'governmentality' (Foucault 1979).
3
The hospital elite and urban practitioners opposed the Debré reforms for they had most to lose from the reforms (Immergut 1992:121-2). Younger doctors, on the other hand, saw the changes as a way of improving their career opportunities. Provincial doctors were also sympathetic because the reforms offered a secure income and career. The intra-professional conflicts led to a major 'split' within the profession and to the establishment of the anti-reform Fédération des Médecins de France (FMF) in 1968 (ibid.: 273, fn. 102).
4
Between 1965 and 1980, full-time posts expanded by 15,000 (Immergut, 1992:275, fn. 114). The 1970 Hospital Law was based, in part, on the Committee's recommendations. Private beds were not eliminated from public hospitals until 1982.
