    Reasonable Self-doubt.Ofer Malcai & Ram Rivlin - forthcoming - Criminal Law and Philosophy:1-21.
    Sometimes, the availability of more evidence for a conclusion provides a reason to believe in its falsity. This counter-intuitive phenomenon is related to the idea of higher-order evidence, which has attracted broad interest in recent epistemological literature. Occasionally, providing more evidence for something weakens the case in its favor, by casting doubt on the probative value of other evidence of the same sort or on the fact-finder’s cognitive performance. We analyze this phenomenon, discuss its rationality, and outline possible application to (...)

    Exploring Corporate Social Responsibility in the U.K. Asian Small Business Community.Ian Worthington, Monder Ram & Trevor Jones - 2006 - Journal of Business Ethics 67 (2):201-217.
    Within the limited, but growing, literature on small business ethics almost no attention has been paid to the issue of social responsibility within ethnic minority businesses. Using a social capital perspective, this paper reports on an exploratory and qualitative investigation into the attitudinal and behavioural manifestations of CSR within small and medium-sized Asian owned or managed firms in the U.K., with particular reference to the distinctive factors motivating organisational responses. It offers alternative explanations of entrepreneurial behaviour and suggests areas for (...)

    Is Economic Inequality in Family Planning in India Associated with the Private Sector?Abhishek Kumar, Anrudh K. Jain, Kumudha Aruldas, Arupendra Mozumdar, Ankita Shukla, Rajib Acharya, Faujdar Ram & Niranjan Saggurti - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-12.
    This study examined the pattern of economic disparity in the modern contraceptive prevalence rate among women receiving contraceptives from the public and private health sectors in India, using data from all four rounds of the National Family Health Survey conducted between 1992–93 and 2015–16. The mCPR was measured for currently married women aged 15–49 years. A concentration index was calculated and a pooled binary logistic regression analysis conducted to assess economic disparity in modern contraceptive use between the public and private (...)

    Researching the Drivers of Socially Responsible Purchasing: A Cross-National Study of Supplier Diversity Initiatives.Ian Worthington, Monder Ram, Harvinder Boyal & Mayank Shah - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 79 (3):319-331.
    What drives organisations to engage in socially responsible purchasing initiatives? To investigate this important question, this article uses a case-study approach to examine the context within which supplier diversity programmes have emerged in both the U.S. and U.K. The analysis identifies legislative and policy developments, economic imperatives, stakeholder pressures and ethical influences as forces shaping organisational responses. It reveals important contextual differences between U.K. and U.S. experience and offers an empirical and theoretical explanation of corporate behaviour.

    Influence of Family Structure on Child Health: Evidence From India.Abhishek Kumar & Faujdar Ram - 2013 - Journal of Biosocial Science 45 (5):577-599.
    SummaryThis paper examines the association between family structure and child health in India using the third round of the National Family Health Survey, conducted during 2005–06. Two important child health indicators – underweight and full immunization – are used as dependent variables. Descriptive and multivariate statistics are deployed to establish the relationship between family structure and child health. The results of the descriptive statistics show that children who belong to a non-nuclear family have better nutritional status and higher immunization coverage (...)

    Why the Fair Innings Argument is Not Persuasive.Michael M. Rivlin - 2000 - BMC Medical Ethics 1 (1):1.
    The fair innings argument is frequently put forward as a justification for denying elderly patients treatment when they are in competition with younger patients and resources are scarce. In this paper I will examine some arguments that are used to support the FIA. My conclusion will be that they do not stand up to scrutiny and therefore, the FIA should not be used to justify the denial of treatment to elderly patients, or to support rationing of health care by age.There (...)

    Is Unintended Birth Associated with Physical Intimate Partner Violence? Evidence From India.Srinivas Goli, Abhishek Gautam, Md Juel Rana, Harchand Ram, Dibyasree Ganguly, Tamal Reja, Priya Nanda, Nitin Datta & Ravi Verma - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-16.
    A growing number of studies have tested the association between intimate partner violence and the unintendedness of pregnancy or birth, and most have suggested that unintendedness of pregnancy is a cause of IPV. However, about nine in every ten women face violence after delivering their first baby. This study examined the effects of the intendedness of births on physical IPV using data from the National Family Health Survey. The multivariate logistic regression model analysis found that, compared with women with no (...)

    National, Ethnic or Civic? Contesting Paradigms of Memory, Identity and Culture in Israel.Uri Ram - 2000 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 19 (5/6):405-422.
    Zionist national identity in Israel is today challenged by two mutuallyantagonistic alternatives: a liberal, secular, Post-Zionist civic identity, on the one hand, and ethnic, religious, Neo-Zionist nationalistic identity, on the other. The other, Zionist, hegemony contains an unsolvable tension between the national and the democratic facets of the state. The Post-Zionist trend seeks a relief of this tension by bracketing the nationalcharacter of the state, i.e., by separation of state and cultural community/ies; the Neo-Zionist trend seeks a relief of the (...)

    Compensation for Gamete Donation: The Analogy with Jury Duty.Lynette Reid, Natalie Ram & R. Brown - 2007 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 16 (1):35-43.
    In Canada, laws and policies consistently reject the commodification of human organs and tissues, and Canadian practice is consistent with international standards in this regard. Until the Assisted Human Reproduction Act of 2004, gamete donation in Canada was an exception: Canadians could pay and be paid open market rates for gametes for use in in vitro fertilization. As sections of the AHR Act forbidding payment for gametes and permitting only reimbursement of receipted expenses gradually came into effect in 2005, Canada (...)

    Britain's New Preimplantation Tissue Typing Policy: An Ethical Defence.N. R. Ram - 2006 - Journal of Medical Ethics 32 (5):278-282.
    The UK Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority was right to permit tissue typing preimplantation genetic diagnosisOn July 21 2004, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority , Britain’s regulatory agency for reproductive technologies, revised its policy on preimplantation genetic diagnosis for tissue typing.1,2 The authority of the HFEA to enact such a policy was affirmed by the UK’s highest court, the House of Lords, on April 28 2005.3 Preimplantation genetic diagnosis combines in vitro fertilisation with genetic testing. In PGD, embryos generally (...)

    Students' Responses to Scenarios Depicting Ethical Dilemmas: A Study of Pharmacy and Medical Students in New Zealand.Marcus A. Henning, Phillipa Malpas, Sanya Ram, Vijay Rajput, Vladimir Krstić, Matt Boyd & Susan J. Hawken - 2016 - Journal of Medical Ethics 42 (7):466-473.
    One of the key learning objectives in any health professional course is to develop ethical and judicious practice. Therefore, it is important to address how medical and pharmacy students respond to, and deal with, ethical dilemmas in their clinical environments. In this paper, we examined how students communicated their resolution of ethical dilemmas and the alignment between these communications and the four principles developed by Beauchamp and Childress. Three hundred and fifty-seven pharmacy and medical students (overall response rate=63%) completed a (...)

    What Love has to Do with It: An Attachment Perspective on Pair Bonding and Sexual Behavior.Vivian Zayas & Daphna Ram - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (1):44-45.
    Del Giudice proposes that short-term mating strategies are adaptive for attachment-avoidant men. We argue that this model (1) does not apply to the majority of avoidant men (fearful-avoidants); (2) is based on limited evidence that the remaining subset of avoidant men (dismissing-avoidants) engage in short-term mating strategies; and (3) disregards the importance of pair bonding even for dismissing-avoidants.

    Socioeconomic and Demographic Predictors of High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Asthma and Heart Disease Among Adults Engaged in Various Occupations: Evidence From India.Sunita Patel, Usha Ram, Faujdar Ram & Surendra Kumar Patel - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-21.
    In India, non-communicable diseases accounted for nearly 62% of all deaths in 2016. Four NCDs – high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma and heart disease – together accounted for over 34% of these deaths. Using data from two rounds of the India Human Development Surveys, levels and changes in the prevalence rates of the four NCDs among adults aged 15–69 years in India between 2004–05 and 2011–12 were examined by socioeconomic and demographic factors and for five broad occupation categories. The socioeconomic (...)

    Association Between the Total Fertility Rate and Under-Five Child Sex Ratio in India: A Panel Study Among Districts of the Major States.Ajit Kumar Yadav, Akansha Singh & Faujdar Ram - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-9.
    This study examined the relationship between the total fertility rate and under-five child sex ratio to understand the role of fertility in the phenomenon of missing girls in India. Using data from the last four decennial censuses for the fifteen major states of India and their districts, covering more than 90% of the population of India, the study showed that there was a major decline in the female to male child sex ratio from 1981 to 2011 in most of the (...)

    Contraceptive Use and its Effect on Indian Women’s Empowerment: Evidence From the National Family Health Survey-4.Biplab Dhak, Niranjan Saggurti & Faujdar Ram - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-11.
    The positive effect of women’s empowerment on the use of contraceptives is well established. However, the reverse effect, i.e. the potential effect of use of contraceptives on women’s empowerment, is relatively unexplored. This study examined the direct impact of contraceptive use on women’s empowerment in currently married women aged 15–49 years in India using data from the National Family Health Survey-4 conducted in 2015–16. A two-stage least squares regression model was used to account for the issue of endogeneity that appears (...)

    Reasons for Academic Honesty and Dishonesty with Solutions: A Study of Pharmacy and Medical Students in New Zealand.M. A. Henning, S. Ram, P. Malpas, R. Sisley, A. Thompson & S. J. Hawken - 2014 - Journal of Medical Ethics 40 (10):702-709.
    This paper presents students’ views about honest and dishonest actions within the pharmacy and medical learning environments. Students also offered their views on solutions to ameliorating dishonest action. Three research questions were posed in this paper: (1) what reasons would students articulate in reference to engaging in dishonest behaviours? (2) What reasons would students articulate in reference to maintaining high levels of integrity? (3) What strategies would students suggest to decrease engagement in dishonest behaviours and/or promote honest behaviours? The design (...)

    The current research explores the women participation in SMEs business by using Probit model. The rapid absorption of women into the labor market has been influenced by several factors. The rapid economic growth was due largely to important growth in the SMEs business, where substantial and proportionally larger increase of female workers has been registered. Among all sectors of the economy, the SMEs have recorded the highest growth rate during the last decade. The increase in the female labor force participation (...)
