Rawls reloaded. De la justice à la justice spatiale.

Lévy, Jacques, Fauchille, Jean-Nicolas, Póvoas, Ana. 2018. Théorie de la justice spatiale. Géographies du juste et de l’injuste. Paris : Odile Jacob.

Mélanie Le Guen | 15.12.2018

This review of the book Théorie de la justice spatiale. Géographies du juste et de l’injuste attempts to identify some of the workings of the writing exercise that such a volume stands for. This six-hands work uses interviews conducted in France, Switzerland and Portugal to show that individuals are able to reflect space-justice interactions and express their own conceptions of justice, based on their experiences as inhabitants. It seriously deals with contemporary concerns, yet it does not resort to [...]

Société mobile : vers une politique des mobilités ? Une exploration autour de cinq enjeux. Peer review

Eric Le Breton | 16.03.2018

Mobility issues are today discussed by economists, politicians, various institutions as well as lobbies, and are raising now some societal questions. They are not only technical concerns, but also political and axiological debates, which are now coming together. We explore five controversies : outskirts accessibility, generic mobility, the control of mobile work, the right to retreat from the flow and democracy based on multiple memberships. A new kind of policy is then appearing, where mobilities are no longer a subject, [...]

Religieux et politique au Maroc.

Rhani, Zakaria. 2014. Le pouvoir de guérir. Mythe, mystique et politique au Maroc. Leiden/Boston : Brill.

Khalid Mouna | 14.09.2015

Although the anthropological literature regarding politics in Maghreb in general and Morocco in particular focuses on dichotomies such as local versus central, Zakaria Rhani’s book questions religion and politics in Morocco through the topic of healing. Myths appear to be at the foundation of political power ; they connect the local to the central. The supernatural world seems to be invested by dynamics that mobilize both genealogy and initiation. By resorting to an anthropological analysis, the author presents the [...]

On ne plaisante pas avec l’humour.

Le mouvement de société du 11 janvier.

Jacques Lévy | 16.01.2015

The deadly attack against Charlie Hebdo on 7th January 2015 in Paris has resulted in an immense protest and solidarity movement. This event deserves the full attention of researchers in social sciences. Beyond apparent contradictions, the movement displays a series of speeches that are in phase with the ethical and political dimensions of contemporary societies of individuals. In fact, the way issues have been demarcated is significantly different from what the French polity usually proposes. Should the methodology expressed [...]

Pour une politique du présent.

Nicolas Poirier | 21.09.2014

The aim of this paper is to bring to light the centrality of the Present within the framework of the democratic regime by showing that, far from being a definite obstacle to whoever wishes to locate themselves truthfully in Time, inscribing oneself resolutely within the Present is a necessary condition to develop an ethical and political activity through which the individual and society can transform themselves. Before we criticize presentism, we will conduct a methodological and epistemological reflection on [...]

Berger, Mathieu, Daniel Cefaï et Carole Gayet-Viaud (dirs.). 2011. Du civil au politique. Ethnographies du vivre-ensemble. Bruxelles : Peter Lang, coll. « Action publique ».
