The Political and Economic Dimensions of Everyday Life: The Conflict as a Political Institution of a Landless-Cooperative in Brasil

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 391 - 410

Resumen

Abstract

Taking as a case study a cooperative belonging to the Landless Movement (MST) of Brazil, this article analyzes the place of conflict and the relationship between the economic and political dimensions of daily life. It presents an analysis on the way to balance the political principles and practices of cooperativism and the constraints imposed by the market economy, by trying to understand how the political experiences of the subjects participate in establishing a social order around a common political project, under permanent construction.

The Forms of Socialization Within Associations of Local Social Services: The “Conviviality” in Question

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 411 - 430

Resumen

Abstract

This article questions the political potential of associations of local social services, starting from an analysis of the forms of socialization, following the meaning given to this category by Simmel, Mead, and their posterity in Goffman’s sociology. It is based on an ethnography carried out in three local associations of the Belgian Red Cross. It shows the obstacles to “conviviality” and to the emergence of politics in these associations.

Theatre Associations in Working Class Neighbourhoods: between Politicisation and Public Action

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 431 - 450

Resumen

Abstract

For about thirty years now, in the context of urban policies, number of theater associations carry out projects in working-class neighborhoods providing active participation of their inhabitants. Based on an ethnographic survey in France and Italy, this article highlights the discursive politicisation processes within these associations. Participatory theatre provides a framework a priori conducive to generate “public spirited-political conversations”. However, these processes can be hampered by a set of public funding constraints.

Politics Within Associations of Food Production and Distribution. Ethnography of an Alternative Food System in a City in Eastern France

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 451 - 471

Resumen

Abstract

Alternative agri-food initiatives have the ambition to build an alternative to the market and industrialization, but these initiatives are nevertheless accused of depoliticization. Scarcely prone to subversion, allegedly they would only address the upper classes and fail to create a movement. An ethnographic survey among these initiatives in a city in eastern France, provides answers to these questions, showing a different definition of the economy re-embedded in politics and territory.

Fighting for What Matters: Care, Supporting People and Preserving a Form of Life in Baton Twirling Clubs

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 473 - 490

Resumen

Abstract

In this article, we look at twirling baton clubs characterized by a specific sociality which is part of a life form. This was threatened by the demands of sportivisation from the sport institution. The protests expressed by the clubs show the attachment to a logic of care with the aim of protecting the vulnerabilities and the singular identities of the athletes who are mostly young girls.

Support for Radical Left Ideologies Among Youth in Switzerland

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 491 - 512

Resumen

Abstract

This article aims to better understand the determinants which support the ideologies of the Radical Left among young people in Switzerland. The analyses presented in the article are based on a survey on the theme of political radicalism which has been carried out in secondary schools on level II. The findings showed that economic and political deprivation, as well as a high degree of anti-authoritarianism, increase the probability of adhering to the different ideologies of the Radical Left. They also suggest that several aspects of the school context have an impact on the ideological positioning of young people.

Who Is Considered Well Integrated? A Vignette Study About the Perception of Integration of Migrants

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 513 - 536

Resumen

Abstract

This contribution examines the relevance of the cultural, social and structural dimension of integration for the total perception of integration of migrants by the population of Switzerland. By means of a vignette study we show in our model that language ability as an aspect of cultural integration is the strongest determinant for a positive perception of integration. Second is the social integration as measured by the participation in associations, followed by the structural integration. Nationality and religion have only little relevance.

Assisted Suicide in Switzerland: the Advent of a “Pattern for Misconduct”

Publicado en línea: 23 Nov 2021
Páginas: 537 - 554

Resumen

Abstract

This article analyses the peculiarity of the assisted dying’s model in Switzerland. It postulates that the collectivity does not accept the act of suicide in itself; it rather accepts the fact of providing assistance for a death that is up to this day formally categorized as a “violent death”. Consequently, the framing of assisted dying and its implementation can be construed as a “pattern for misconduct”, which opens an original and pragmatic angle to understand one of the social issues in relation with the contemporary ways to end one’s life.
