Opposant les tenants d’une pol...

This article studies the chronic and acute anomic social impacts of the development of market societies in Europe over the past few decades. Focusing on the firm but linking micro and macro levels, it argues that the passage from the welfare state to disembedded markets and neoliberal governance has generated individual and collective anomie by dep...
Article
Le secteur de la santé est un de ceux à pâtir le plus des mesures d’austérité infligées à la population grecque depuis 2010. La réforme impulsée par les autorités au motif de rationalisation a conduit à une réduction dramatique de la qualité des prestations de soins sans pour autant résoudre les dysfonctionnements propres au système, notamment le s...

The starting assumption which...
Article
Les mesures d’austérité mises en œuvre par le gouvernement grec depuis 2010 ont plongé le pays dans une crise sans précédent. La brutale érosion des salaires et du pouvoir d’achat parallèlement à l’explosion du chômage ont engendré une régression non seulement sociale mais aussi démocratique : ce constat particulièrement alarmiste met en cause la f...

Suicidal gestures linked to work have increased in frequency worldwide in recent decades and are likely to continue rising in coming years. They can be understood as the extreme expres-sion of a spectrum of individual and social pathologies bred by the general competitive logic that characterizes the new spirit of capitalism. Illustrated in this ar...

Since the end of the 1970s, an incremental erosion of social rights, resulting from successive restructurings of national labour markets that have been encouraged at European Union level, and the consequent emergence of a society of competition, has led to social anomie while at the same time opening the way for a new disciplinary normative order....

The Emerging Minimal Social State in Europe. As an ideal-type, the "minimal" social state has become the model towards which national social protection systems are converging in Europe. This translates as a shift from the universalistic redistributive aims of the social state to policies of management of the poor who are tightly bound in adminstrat...

Prenant la parole à l'Assemblée nationale pour plaider l'irrecevabilité du projet de loi de finances pour 2006, le député communiste du Cher, Jean-Claude Sandrier, avait beaucoup de mal à capter l'attention de ses collè-gues de la majorité gouvernementale. C'était le 18 octobre 2005, quelque dix jours avant l'embrasement des banlieues françaises. D...

As one studies the career path of laid-off female workers in the textile industry over several years, one realizes that the classical arguments referring to their lack of motivation, mobility and autonomy as well as to the rough realities of the labor market do not hold. As women, they have been twice, or even thrice the victims of the indifferent...

The Social Policies, an Experimental Science The social policies of the fifteen member states of the European Union have been re-deployed upwards to the European Union level, and downwards, through decentralization, to the local level. They are now managed through a method of open coordination. Notwithstanding a declared intent to safeguard the « E...

In a world in flux in which the scientific certainties derived from earlier social paradigms are being challenged by the intrusion of phenomena not confinable within the bounds of 'rational actor' assumptions, the edge of objectivity of the social sciences is being tested. Emotion as a Dimension of Ethical and Moral Motivation grapples with this ep...

Equallty, Fairness : The Ideologlcal Categories of Public Policy. Noëlle Burgi [47-76]. Forced to recognize the inefficiency and failure of all the technical measures implemented to curb the new (inevitable?) poverty, mass long term unemployment, and the «impossible task of reinserting unqualified youth into the labor force» over the past decade, t...

Weak state, strong power : the British example How can one understand the Thatcherian "revolution"? Is it not paradoxical, given the political discourse (the State must be " reduced " ; " its limits must be pushed back ") and British cultural traditions that have always been wary of tha " strength " of the State ?
