LAMARTRA addresses the interlinkages between transition processes of decarbonisation and ‘labour market’ - understood more broadly as work and employment. The salience of these interlinkages is increasing as processes of low-carbon transition are progressing beyond their initial stages of pioneering and niche markets. This salience speaks from the...

Considering insights from socio-economics, work psychology, and occupational health, this study focuses on the job satisfaction and well-being of employees working in nonprofit social enterprises (SE). We question the idea suggested by the recent literature that working for a SE brings employees a high level of job satisfaction and well-being. We a...

How to select cases for multi-case analysis in social innovation research? This article addresses the practical issue of sampling units of analysis for further in-depth study. This is a challenging methodological question since one recognizes the “essentially contested” character of the concept. Noticeably, the concept of social innovation generate...
Chapter
Dans le cadre de cet article, l’innovation sociale (IS) renvoie à des initiatives associatives qui, en se saisissant de l’aspiration à « vieillir chez soi », brisent les routines et les structures du système de eldercare wallon. Mais concrètement, que signifie innover socialement pour ces initiatives ? Et sur quelles logiques de financement s’appui...
Chapter
Introduction: L'objectif de ce texte est d’examiner comment la méthode Delphi peut permettre de répondre au problème de délimitation d’un terrain d’enquête qui se pose dans la recherche en innovation sociale, problème qui est lié à l’absence à la fois de définition consensuelle de l’innovation sociale et d’un cadastre des cas d’innovation. Notre éq...

RESUME: Ce texte revisite, au sein du quadriptyque des formes d’intégration économique de Karl Polanyi, celle qui a été la moins étudiée : le partage domestique (householding). Notre contribution s’inscrit dans la continuité de travaux récents en socioéconomie qui appellent à élargir le concept de partage domestique (Hillenkamp 2013), c’est à dire...

The statistical analysis shows that labour-sector governing institutions are differentiate...
Technical Report
En Wallonie, la question de l’accompagnement à domicile (AD) se pose pleinement pour une population âgée de plus en plus nombreuse qui aspire à rester chez elle mais dont la probabilité est forte de voir cette aspiration entravée par des pathologies, l’isolement social et le manque de ressources financières. Du côté des pouvoirs publics, la volonté...
Article

The demonstration underlines the importance of resource hybridization in the...

LAMARTRA addresses the interlinkages between transition processes of decarbonisation and work & employment. How to understand the ongoing and future developments of the low-carbon and 'labour' transitions, and which governance strategies are available in Belgium to ensure the joint pursuit of climate targets and ‘just’ work and employment?
Project
Various network governance constellations are being developed for the stimulation, co-creation and institutional anchorage of sustainability-oriented innovation and grassroots initiatives. Beyond this bright and mobilizing side of transitions governance, this project deliberately targets its crucial but hitherto relatively neglected counterpart of exnovation. How can the existing governance arrangements and regulatory frameworks in the Brussels Capital Region be supported in dealing with the sustainable economy transition and its exnovation challenges?
