dc.description.abstract Governments, sectors and organisations operate from sets of espoused values that coexist and operate simultaneously whilst essentially being quite different. Tension between these values is common. Through the lens of value pluralism, this seminar examines different value sets that operate simultaneously. It particularly focuses on tensions and incompatibility resulting in situations where the values are incommensurable and one value set must inevitably takes precedence over another. The contexts discussed will be not-forprofit community services and in particular the policies affecting people with disability. en
