What Attaches Individuals to Groups and Society. A European Comparison

Publié en ligne: 20 Mar 2020
Pages: 7 - 35

Résumé

Abstract

By extending the analytical perspective of Durkheim, we set a theoretical framework to examine social bonds at two levels: the attachment of individuals to each other and the attachment of individuals to society. We create statistical indicators for comparing European countries and also, on an exploratory basis, the regions of Switzerland. We can distinguish and validate four ideal types of attachment regimes (familialist, voluntarist, organicist and universalist). Furthermore, our analysis shows national and regional specificities.

Gender Gap in the Career Success of University Graduates: Effects of Work-Related Values

Publié en ligne: 20 Mar 2020
Pages: 37 - 71

Résumé

Abstract

The article deals with the unequal career outcomes between women and men. The data from the graduate survey are used to investigate the effect of work-related values on career success. The Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition determines which factors can explain the gender difference. The results show that career aspirations have a more positive effect on men than on women and that a considerable proportion of the gender gap remains unexplained.

The Symbolic Stakes of an Academic Degree. Reconfigurations of Power Relationships and New Tensions Within the Nursing Profession

Publié en ligne: 20 Mar 2020
Pages: 73 - 95

Résumé

Abstract

The opening in 2009 at the University of Lausanne of a master’s degree program marked a new stage in the history of the profession in Switzerland. With new resources, the emergence of these nurses disrupting professional relationships, both with respect to doctors as well as within the profession. After having presented the issues of making knowledge more academic and more scientific in every sense, we show some effects of this diploma, in particular the attempt of redefinition of the practical and symbolic roles to which it gives rise.

Disagreements in Nursing Homes. Analysing the Competition between Occupations with Fuzzy Boundaries

Publié en ligne: 20 Mar 2020
Pages: 97 - 115

Résumé

Abstract

This article looks at interprofessional disagreements about how care should be provided in nursing homes for elderly people. The article shows that, while work is discussed by referring to four general principles, their prioritization remains a point of contention. This priority ranking is specific to the norms of each profession involved, which are not always compatible.

Scientific Events as Constitutive Characteristics of New Fields of Science and Research. The Example of the “Swiss NanoConvention”

Publié en ligne: 20 Mar 2020
Pages: 117 - 144

Résumé

Abstract

Scientific events are rarely discussed in the formation and development of new fields of science. Using the example of the Swiss NanoConvention, it will be shown to what extent a long series of events shapes the Swiss nanosciences and is shaped by them. The convention offers the opportunity to both, present and legitimize new forms of science and research to heterogeneous publics, and to consolidate internal structures of the field. The analysis thus provides insight into the contours of nanoscience.

Reputation as a Mechanism for Coping with the Contingency of Social Addressing

Publié en ligne: 20 Mar 2020
Pages: 145 - 164

Résumé

Abstract

The transformation towards a functional differentiation of society and the current emergence of social media have increased the importance of reputation, because persons have become comparable and contingently addressable throughout society. We examine both social media and China’s emerging “social credit system” to determine whether and to what extent these developments point to the development of a symbolically generalized communication medium of reputation, respectively, to a social change from functional to individual differentiation.

Mots clés
