    Returns

    “Africa e Mediterraneo” Journal

    The debate on asylum and migration is bringing to light the theme of return; not that of an old migrant returning to his country of origin after a lifetime of work, but that of the younger generations who still find themselves in the midst of an existential and professional journey. There are more and more questions on the phenomenon of asylum seekers forced to deal with this step due to their asylum request being denied or their integration into society failing, as well as on the cases in which migrants return home deliberately out of choice with an enterprise project possibly favored by national and international policies.

    Competition and solidarity networks in contemporary South Asia's Labour Market 

    Hegemonic neo-liberal discourse assumes that free competition on all levels sparks a virtuous cycle of economic growth, which eventually trickles down to poor populations. Over the past three decades, the idea that restrictive labour laws hamper such competition has justified the deregulation of labour in the North and the un-regulation of labour in the South, notably in South Asia, where labour relations had already mainly been informal. Various sociologists have noted that intensified economic interactions and the rise of competition have made individuals more likely to activate their social networks to protect their individual interests. In this respect, to what extent do social networks shape relations in the diverse South Asian labour markets? How do new forms of social groupings reconfigure competition and solidarity relations? What forms of social interactions prevail, emerge and weaken in the market: chosen solidarity and inherited solidarity; inter-caste and intra-caste solidarity; class solidarity; corporate solidarity etc.?

    Histoire des théories du salaire

    Théories, analyses théoriques et histoire du salaire de subsistance au revenu de base

    The Centre Walras-Pareto is organizing a workshop on the history of wages. The workshop will take place at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland), 29-30 September 2016. Much has been written on wages within economics. In his classical account of the history ofwage theory, Dunlop (1957) refers to three time-periods: the wage-fund theory domination,the rise of marginal productivity distribution theory, and the “contemporary setting”, startingin the 1930s and characterized by a diversity of theoretical arguments; but much has changed.

    Social Rights and Democracy

    Prim@ Facie, Vol 15, No 29 (2016)

    We are especially interested in manuscripts on social rights and democracy. Our intent is to prepare a set of discussions on how democracies promote social rights today, i.e., to what extent social movements, legal institutions, parliaments and executive power are able to find solutions to the challenges of democracies today? Have, for example, affirmative action, housing and health care programs, and even direct financial assistance to the poor actually reduced inequality? In addition, what are the most effective solutions for poverty? Are courts the best way to ensure social rights today? We are also interested in papers that address the costs of social programs. These are some of the possibilities, but many other questions may be brought to the table. We encourage submissions based on historical approaches carried out by jurists, political scientists, historians, sociologists, and other professionals in fields that have particular focus on legal problems.

    Foreign Language Teaching in Tertiary Education IV

    Business and Foreign Languages

    The economic crisis has led to high unemployment in Greece and in the European South in general and therefore many young people leave their country in order to work in businesses either in Europe or on other continents. This mobility however, if regarded as a factor that promotes the professional competitiveness of young people, enriching their knowledge and skills abroad and allowing them to transfer their interlingual and intercultural experience to other businesses or back to their country, leads us to the conclusion that the knowledge of one or more foreign languages is one of the pillars of young people’s creativity and adaptation in the workplace.

    Customer-facing service work as a moment of truth?

    European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS) 2015 – Subtheme n°64

    The proportion of people working in jobs where dealing with a client/customer is essential has grown considerably (e.g. MacDonald & Merrill, 2009). Although this could encourage the investigation of differences and singularities of service work, managerialist approaches rather tend to assume universal management models, based on a prescriptive set of human resources practices and a harmonious vision of the relationships between management, customers and employees. Writing within this tradition, Norman (1984) labeled the point at which client/customer and service worker interact as the 'moment of truth' for the service firm. This sub-theme asks scholars to critically reflect on what kind of truth claims are put forward, enacted and experienced within service interactions, and on how we, as scholars, mediate these truth claims. A different set of answers to these questions are suggested, for instance, within sociological approaches that analyse service settings as based on potentially antagonistic relationships leading to contradictions and tensions between the parties involved (e.g. Korczynski, 2002; Lopez, 2010).

    States in Crisis

    Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics – University of Milan 2013

    The 2013 conference theme, "States in Crisis," is an opportunity to ask and answer a broad range of questions about the contemporary state, from its role in and reactions to economic and fiscal crises to the way in which its contours have or have not adapted and changed in concert with the modern economy to its place as a bulwark against or a catalyst for the construction of more market-driven societies. Within the well-established remit of SASE, participants are invited to submit theoretical and empirical contributions, at multiple levels of analysis from the local to the global, drawing from multi-disciplinary socio-economic frameworks.

    Dimensions of the Labor Market Dynamics

    France Japan Comparison

    Le symposium Dimensions of Labor Markets Dynamics organisé à la Maison Franco-Japonaise de Tokyo les 23 et 24 mars est issu d'un programme de recherche intitulé Newdynam: Nouvelle dynamique de la gestion des âges et genre sur les marchés du travail: comparaison France-Japon. Alors que la France et le Japon se caractérisaient par la prééminence des marchés internes du travail jusque dans la fin des années 1980, il se demande comment leur déstabilisation a conduit, de façon différente dans chacun des pays, à une dynamique de la gestion d’emploi renouvelée. Pour ce faire, il utilise à la fois des méthodes comparatives quantitatives et qualitatives aux niveaux national (évolution des types d'emploi etc.) et d'entreprises (Sidérurgie, électricité, centres d'appels, universités etc.).

    Food and Hospitals

    An Historical Perspective

    While contemporary grumblings about hospital food have become the quintessential hospital complaint, it is undeniable that a clean, warm bed, rest and the provision of food and drink, rather than medicines and therapies have always greatly increased hospital patients’ chances of recovery. Indeed diet has from the time of Galen been a central part of medical therapy. However, even if central to the day-to-day routine of hospitals, workhouses and asylums, food and drink continue to be overlooked in historical accounts of hospitalisation. This conference aims to foreground the role of food and drink in health care institutions in the past.

    Économie informelle, vulnérabilités et emploi

    The central objective of this conference is to provide a state of the heart of academic research on the substantive performance of informal economic units in the construction of their territory. It means that it intends to (1) highlight the inner socioeconomic logics developed by informal economy units, (2) provide a better understanding of socioeconomic practices to manage risk across the life course and fight vulnerabilities at individual, family and collective levels, (3) analyze the interaction between public policies and informal practices and (4) analyze how securization practices within the informal economy participate to the construction of a given territory (of its markets, of potential social services, social protection mechanisms, and of its public sphere). It will provide a new knowledge of specific mechanisms of coordination, reproduction, surplus allocation and securization which are characterizing individual/family and collective/associative organizations from the informal economy.

    Temps éclatés, urgence et perte de sens

    Dossier thématique de la Nouvelle revue du travail

    Le monde du travail subit de plus en plus la dictature du présent. Cela donne une impression d’agitation permanente, qui est aussi une façon d'éviter de se poser des questions sur le sens de l'action. Que veut dire, matériellement et symboliquement, de devoir travailler dans l’urgence ? Que fait l’urgence aux conditions d’exercice du travail et au sens même de ce travail ? Que fait-on concrètement subir au travail et au travailleur quand on accélère son rythme ?

    Organized by UMR 201, RUME India, Mexico, Madagascar, CIESAS (Mexico) (www.rume-rural-microfinance.org). The main purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop will be a theoretical and empirical examination of over-indebtedness from the perspective of southern countries, with the following underlying hypothesis: to define and analyze the process of indebtedness requires first an understanding of the complexity and diversity of debt relationships. The following questions might be addressed: 1) The social meaning of debt, creditworthiness and over-indebtedness. 2) Financial ‘markets’ and financial providers. 3) Financial culture. 4) Impoverishment and accumulation. 5) Over-indebtedness.
