  • L'économie mondiale du savoir auquel l'Afrique devrait contribuer passe nécessairement par le renforcement de la formation doctorale et le soutien à la recherche. Les étudiants africains s'engagent la plupart du temps dans une thèse sans repères, sans date butoir, sans bibliothèque, sans financements, sans ordinateurs, sans un encadrement effectif et surtout sans autres moyens que la volonté d'y arriver. Concrètement, comment rédige-t-on une thèse de Doctorat en Afrique aujourd'hui ? Comment devient-on Docteur(e) en sciences sociales à Yaoundé, à Ouagadougou, à Dakar ?

  • Anglais Making the new


    • Le cherche-midi
    • 4 Octobre 2018

    From new apps on our cellphone to car-sharing, from the invasion of drones to the reorganization of production lines, from tweets to digital tablets and procreation methods, from genetic manipulations to nanotechnologies, innovation is everywhere.
    It has penetrated and turned upside-down all the economic, social, cultural and political sectors.
    Nothing escapes it. Nothing can survive without it. Permanent innovation, that headlong search for the new, is the originality of our period.
    What world are we living in?
    How can we find our way in a profusion like this?
    How can we evaluate the meaning and usefulness of this general and growing agitation of our societies?
    What universe is being prepared?
    For three years, at regular morning sessions, we invited the most diverse personalities: heads of major groups and startup creators, scientists and philosophers, elected officials and physicians, foreign and French experts in many fields. They tackled every subject: the energy and digital transitions, the biological revolution, green mobility, new towns, those consumers who have become actors.
    Everything moves! Montaigne was right: "Our world eternally turns around.'
    Here is a modest contribution to the portrait of our modernity.

  • In the introduction to his book, Yohannan Friedmann wrote that the Ahmadiyya has been one of the "most active and controversial movements within modern Islam". Indeed, the Muslimness of the Ahmadis has been debated ever since the inception of the movement in the 19th century, where several successive fatwas declared its supporters to be heretics and deviants. In Pakistan, this Muslim minority will be declared non-muslim through a Constitutional amendment and later an Ordinance will go as far as criminalizing their right to be Muslims. The community will thus face a wave of persecution and violence under the sight of the Pakistani State's silence. In 1984, the community led by a caliphate will find refuge in Britain and will start to explore the freedom to express and display their religious identity in a visible manner.
    Through the theoretical framework of two sociologists of the School of Chicago - Howard Becker and Erving Goffman - and their work on deviant communities, this book explores to what extent the lack of recognition of the Muslim identity of Ahmadis in Pakistan evolves in the specific diasporic context of Britain.
    This book examines the relationship between the treatment of a politically controlled minority in a theocracy and the modalities of its importation into a Western democracy.

  • Anglais Transition periods as founding pillars of democracy and peace

    Antonio Mapua Bambissa

    • Editions l'harmattan
    • 1 Juillet 2016

    The purpose of this book is to explain why, after the occurrence of unconstitutional changes of government, a period of transition is necessary. The author sustains the view that periods of transition present opportunities to not only set up the structural foundations of the soul of the nation, but also to establish solid democratic institutions and durable peace. He believes that the success of a democratic transition is founded on the way transitional institutions are organised, as well as on their commitment to peace and to democratic values. Many instances are based in african countries.

  • Mettre en tension la généalogie de la « matrice de race » et son imaginaire a constitué l'un des objectifs principaux des Journées d'Études Internationales organisées par le GRENAL autour des enjeux de « race/s ». À travers différentes analyses pratiques portant sur un corpus diversifié, ces journées ont mis l'accent sur certains biais dans la saisie de l'autre non-blanc qui empruntent encore largement au schéma racial. Que celui-ci soit assumé ouvertement ou transfiguré, conscient ou inconscient. L'imaginaire racial ne saurait cependant pas être réduit aux images des non-blancs; il implique une relation hiérarchique, induit des dispositifs de relégation ou de valorisation et, surtout, génère de puissantes identifications très contradictoires dont l'efficace sociale est incontestable.

  • These are the collected papers of the second international symposium of the APEAS : texts heard in conferences and discussions with the audience. The event gathered doctors, paediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, anthropologists as well as magistrates, policemen, researchers and prevention professionals to discuss the different problems surrounding dangerous games and school bullying. They identify in particular the change in how these games are played and the impact of social network. To inform, educate and prevent are the goals of such an international meeting.

  • I only met those who managed to get through. Those who witnessed the attacks on their villages, the burning down of their homes. Those who buried their dead. Those who were caputured, imprisoned or tortured. Those who crossed the Sahara. Those who worked illegally in Libya to pay for the crossing of the Mediterranean. Those who do not speak the language of the country whre they arrive. Who are these men and sometimes women who ask for asylum in France ?

  • This book is made for you who have decided to consult a classical homeopath. Classical Homeopathy was discovered and developed by Samuel Hahnemann (End of 18thcentury). A unique homeopathic remedy is prescribed.

    'Before consultation' establishes the central notion of constitution. Good health is a perfect synonym of a balanced constitution, whereas an unbalanced one leaves the door open to illness. The unique homeopathic remedy restores the balance by giving the individual the equivalent energy.

    'During consultation' explains the state of mind needed to go through consultation, to be as productive as possible. It is a singular living process.

    'After consultation' establishes the importance of the follow up in the homeopathic process. Just because a remedy has been given, this doesn't mean it is all over... things may only be starting!

    Numerous real life case studies substantiate the development of a homeopathic pedagogy. At the end of this guide you will find useful guidelines and practical factsheets for collecting the most important original and specific signs.

  • The European continent has never been more important to the future of the global economy. The role of the European Union is now being overshadowed by seemingly existential threats. Europe is changing, and changing quickly.

    The global economy is also changing, and is doing so more quickly than at any other time in history. Companies are changing the way in which they do business, and the way in which they define business. What is success? How do we measure business performance in the new global economy?

    The transition from old economic models to a new business paradigm creates environmental, social, and societal issues. Seeing companies through the challenges ahead will require strong leadership, exceptional vision, and talent. This book sets out the views of five women who match this description.

    While women are still underrepresented in senior management positions, these women have succeeded as business leaders. Does the uniqueness of the female experience affect their vision of the economy? What can their careers and their companies tell us about business performance?

    Perhaps most importantly - for Europe, for these women, for our economy as a whole - what comes next?

  • Ce volume de Transversales constitue le septième volet des travaux de spécialistes des études sur le dix-huitième siècle français et britannique. Ces chercheurs tentent de redéfinir les modes opératoires de la sociabilité pour chacune des deux nations, à partir de sources célèbres ou méconnues, et s'interrogent sur la réalité de la supériorité du modèle français de sociabilité. Le présent volume s'intéresse plus particulièrement à la représentation et à la réinvention des espaces de sociabilité à partir de sources diverses, correspondance, oeuvres littéraires, archives de sociétés, essais philosophiques, films. Il met en évidence les dimensions urbanistiques et transgressives de l'espace, sa dualité, en étant à la fois imaginaire et physique et s'interroge sur le rôle de l'être humain, acteur et spectateur. La représentation des espaces de sociabilité, telle qu'elle est abordée dans cet ouvrage, pose la question de l'autorité et de la négociation opérée par l'individu entre liberté et appartenance à un groupe socio-culturel lui-même indissociable d' une nation en devenir.
    This volume is the seventh in the Transversales series published by a group of researchers of different nationalities on the topic of sociability in France and Britain during the Enlightenment. The research focuses on the extent to which a new model of sociability emerged in these nations during this period, and the similarities and differences between the ways this model developed on each side of the Channel. The present volume examines the representation and reinvention of sociable spaces through an excavation of various sources, letters, literary works, archives of societies, philosophical essays, films. It highlights the urbanistic and transgressive aspects of space, its duality, as it is at once physical and imaginary, and it questions the role of human beings, both as actors and spectators. The representation of sociable spaces, as it is dealt with in this work, raises the issue of authority and of the negotiation enacted by the individual between freedom and the membership of a socio-cultural group that is inseparable from a nation in the making.

  • Los estudios que han visibilizado la esclavitud y el cautiverio en las sociedades europeas medievales y modernas, así como en sus continuidades atlánticas, son abundantes. Remiten, cada vez más, a las transformaciones identitarias a las que las personas esclavizadas se vieron abocadas, a la consistencia y riqueza de su bagaje cultural, a su marginalidad, o a su aceptación o resistencia a la cultura dominante. Los préstamos de las ciencias sociales pueden ayudar a renovar las aproximaciones al fenómeno, pero también pueden ser problemáticos. Los trabajos aquí reunidos intentan dar respuesta a este reto, contribuyen al enriquecimiento de las herramientas metodológicas e interpretativas de las fuentes, y potencian -desde la interdisciplinariedad- el debate, la reflexión y el aprovechamiento de la renovación epistemológica que experimentan la antropología y la sociología históricas. Son aportaciones novedosas que, tanto desde la introducción del análisis de nuevas fuentes como desde la relectura de las que tradicionalmente han sido más explotadas, constituyen un avance hacia nuevos estudios de historia social de la esclavitud centrados en el esclavo y en sus redes de relaciones sociales.

  • Femmes de conscience, Aspects du féminisme américain (1848-1875) éclaire les débats qui animent la pensée américaine au XIXe siècle et préparent les grandes actions du XXe. Une équipe de spécialistes s'est réunie autour de Susan Goodman et Daniel Royot afin de mettre en perspective tout un faisceau d'idées. L'unité thématique s'est réalisée sur la condition des femmes et son évolution. Sont ainsi examinées les lignes de force des divers mouvements. L'approche diachronique permet d'évaluer les phases successives des luttes. L'ouvrage traite en outre de la nature du discours féministe et de ses variantes, s'attachant aux voix représentatives en termes de politique, de philosophie et de création littéraire. La question religieuse, le problème du mariage, la cause des femmes noires, les fonctions socio-économiques, le droit de vote font l'objet d'analyses. Polémiques, débats, ruptures, échecs et réussites constituent la trame de ce panorama dont on peut dire qu'il participe d'une problématique inédite, de nature à donner un nouvel élan aux études féministes anglophones.

  • In an era when globalization no longer seems to simply mean the overcoming of national borders, but rather the increasing populist sentiment of isolationism, advocating for intercultural praxis becomes daring. The recognition that our very existence depends on our capacity to forge a different global paradigm has led the authors to identify in intercultural awareness one factor towards an ethical refoundation of cohabitation on the planet.

  • Je me suis mise à observer les enfants. Tous maigres et fatigués, ils n'avaient pas même 14 ans. Certains paraissaient si frêles et si menus que dans mon pays à n'en pas douter, ils auraient été envoyés à l'hôpital ou dorlotés au maximum par leurs parents. Ces histoires vécues font partie du Programme internationale pour l'abolition du travail des enfants (IPEC) du bureau international du Travail (BIT).

  • Asia and the Pacific, an immense region, both new and old, in which two thirds of the world lives. A region of superlatives, exceptions, China, continually facing disasters and risks from its past, India, a continent of its own, Japan, archipelago of the future. It is a region that is attracting global growth and becoming the centre of the world. Who could have predicted that the GDP of Asia and the Pacific would be equal to that of the European Union? And what will tomorrow bring? This compilation gives an overview of Asia's world, bringing together texts written by researchers and specialists and that have been published on Asia and the Pacific Network's website (CNRS) between 2011 and 2013. It follows the first volume published in 2011 covering the period 2002-2011. These works covering the humanities and social science recount the past, tell us of the future and illustrate the complexity of Asia and the Pacific through its flaws, strengths and challenges. They reveal the profound roots and depth of the dynamism of these new powers that could soon take over the future of humanity. Numerous researchers and academics specialising in contemporary Asia and the Pacific are bringing into light many aspects of this great and inevitable shift in the world.
