    The European electricity market and national energy policies

    This workshop has the ambition to put together a group of researchers in political science, economic sociology and institutional economics who are interested in these interactions between the wholesale market and energy policies. The scientific challenge is to understand how our political, economic and legal institutions are supporting these frictions and are attempting to articulate these policies, and how articulations rely on economic expertise, political negotiation, legal interpretation, etc.

    Intangible Cultural Heritage in Nature

    Spaces, Resources and Practices - International Research Seminar of Comparative Law

    Intangible cultural heritage can be created by communities as a response to their environment and their interaction with nature. Farming, fishing, hunting, pastoral or food gathering practices are, for instance, associated to natural resources and spaces. Safeguarding these elements of intangible cultural heritage requires, not only recognition of a community’s rights to access ecosystems, such as forests or seas, but also the right to use its resources. States may grant to communities hunting, shing or harvesting rights, to preserve their traditional lifestyle and the intangible cultural heritage it sustains. These rights must however be exercised in an ecologically sustainable manner to mitigate the impact these practices can have on the environment. In contrast, some knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe can be considered as land management systems or as traditional ecological knowledge. In this case, safeguarding intangible cultural heritage contributes directly to the preservation of the environment and to the conservation of biodiversity.

    Development policies, space and violence in Latin America: an interdisciplinary discussion

    The main objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers working from different disciplines (anthropology, sociology, political science, geography) on the spatial impact of development policies applied under authoritarian regimes in Latin America. Although the “spatial turn” is already well-established in the Social and Human Sciences, the appropriation and adaptation of this theoretical frame remains scarcely explored to reflect on State(s) violence(s). Moreover, the analysis of the spatial impact of development policies carried out in a "forced" manner in the period of dictatorships in Latin America remains also barely analysed.

    Populism in Central and Eastern Europe in the 20th Century

    Since the 1990s, several political movements qualified as “populist” have emerged in Central and Eastern Europe, drawing the attention of political scientists. If we want to understand why these movements exercise such attraction and why they are so relentless in this space, it is necessary to cross the study of current politics with the analysis of long term developments. Indeed, since the 19th century, Central and Eastern Europe has known several movements and political parties that have called themselves or have been labelled as “populist”. In this sense, the long-term approach allows considering the similarities and the differences, according to different contexts and periods, and identifying the reasons and the mechanisms of action of these movements. At last, this historical approach helps to consider the specificity - if there is any specificity - of these movements in Central and Eastern Europe and to evaluate their impact on political cultures of the region.

    The Invention of Sin

    The Greek word for a fault or error is hamartia; this same word, when it appears in Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament, is commonly rendered as “sin.”  If there were no word like sin or péché or Sünde or peccato in modern languages, with the religious connotation these terms have acquired, could we identify a special sense of hamartia (or the Latin peccatum) in the Bible on the basis of context alone?  This colloquium will address the question of when and how error and wrongdoing acquired the specific sense of sin commonly associated with the Judaeo-Christian tradition – if indeed there was a change.  Under examination will be attitudes toward wrongdoing in ancient cults, ideas of pollution, conceptions of God or gods, and more.

    Logistical workers

    Studying labour inside logistical worlds

    During the last 30 years, the logistics sector has become a key function of the global economy. Nevertheless, social sciences have only recently taken into account the importance of this transformation, trying to depict its impact on the economic systems as well as on working conditions. This conference aims at fostering a dialogue between different researches that, on an international scale, address logistics as an object, a perspective, or even as an analytical concept.
