    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.

    Editorial independence and public powers - Bibliodiversity journal

    Revue Bibliodiversity

    Les recherches consacrées à l’industrie du livre pensent généralement l’indépendance comme un acte de sécession, que ce soit par rapport à la sphère de grande production ou aux pouvoirs publics. Elles mettent ainsi en lumière les stratégies d’éditeurs qui entendent situer leurs activités de manière singulière et autonome par rapport aux figures de l’État et/ou du marché, notamment du point de vue des contenus et des modèles économiques. Le sens de la notion d’édition indépendante varie dès lors selon les pays et les contextes socio-économiques observés et selon chaque acteur éditorial.

    Regions and the European Union’s cohesion policy

    La cohésion économique, sociale et territoriale est un objectif stratégique fondamental pour l’Union européenne et ses États membres tant en termes de politique qu’en termes budgétaires. Le colloque permettra de développer la connaissance scientifique et la discussion dans un cadre pluridisciplinaire (sciences politiques, juridiques, économiques et sciences sociales) à travers des contributions transversales (pour tous les types de régions, régions en retard de développement, régions en transition, et régions plus développées) et thématiques (recherche et innovation, PME, politique sociale, numérique, environnement, Réseaux européens de transport, etc). Cette manifestation scientifique abordera les questions clefs des objectifs, du financement, de l’impact de l’action publique européenne sur les territoires / le territoire de l’Union européenne. Les communications pourront aussi porter sur les acteurs (acteurs politiques, acteurs de gestion), les parties prenantes et la société civile, sans négliger les questions de la pertinence et de la légitimation de la politique de cohésion.

    Crisis, Idea and Policy Transformation

    Experts and Expertise in European International Organizations, 1973-1987

    Crisis and crisis experience were central to Western European history between the first oil crisis of 1973 and the creation of the Single European Act. European international organizations (IOs) such as the OECD or the EC played a crucial role in debating and addressing manifold dimensions of crisis, shifting discourses and transforming policies at national and European level. These IOs drew heavily on experts and their expertise in debating and managing crisis and seeking solutions for structural problems. Organized jointly by the University of Portsmouth and Maastricht University on 30-31 January 2014, the workshop will investigate who were the experts active within IOs and what type or form of expertise they had and draw upon in agenda-setting, policy deliberation and decision-making. It will also discuss the role of experts in policy-making in the respective IOs and their influence on the development of the policy area concerned.

    Bordeaux and Aquitaine: What perspectives for the integration of the territory?

    La journée d’étude annuelle organisée par l’association Vocation Sociologue se propose de placer au cœur de la réflexion la question du territoire et d’en faire la clé de voûte du colloque. Le territoire est aujourd’hui une notion centrale du discours politique et public : lieu de rencontre(s) entre pouvoirs publics, entrepreneurs, citoyens et société civile, il est la première échelle d’intégration et de développement des initiatives publiques, citoyennes et économiques.

    Central banks as organizations

    A wide body of historical and economic literature has been published on central banks. It covers topics ranging from their role in defining and conducting economic and monetary policy, to their sometimes complex relationships with the public authorities. We will therefore take a different approach at our study day. Instead, we will focus on the organisation of these particular institutions, which are positioned between the State and markets and between national rationales and international dynamics.  To do this, we will examine how their internal structures and governance have developed in order to adapt to transformations in their respective environments throughout the 20th century.

    When will the brain war come?

    Working in public administration in the 21st century

    Dans un contexte de restrictions budgétaires et de réformes, le secteur public est amené à recruter des talents, ces hauts et moins hauts potentiels chargés « d’en faire plus et mieux avec moins ». En concurrence directe avec le secteur privé, comment faire de l’administration publique un employeur réellement attractif plutôt qu’un choix par défaut dans un contexte d’accès à l’emploi difficile ?

    Corruption and conflicts of interests

    Third seminar of the "Economic analysis of public law and policies" series

    Participants to the November 24 2010 session on Impact Assessment and the Scientific Committee of the Seminar have suggested that, broadly speaking, topics revolving around corruption, the rule of law and good governance would be of interest for the next session. We feel that, within this array, corruption stricto sensu and the broader set of public agents behaviours generally described as characterizing a situation of “conflict of interest” may be a good focus. The day will focus, more precisely, on the analysis of the determinants of corruption, and the impact of corruption on economic growth. Certain major concepts such as agency or transparency should be part of the analysis and debate in order to open a broad discussion on the rationale and efficiency of anti-corruption policies.

    Energy and Development

    L’énergie est un défi majeur en matière de politique de développement. La poursuite d’un développement se nourrissant essentiellement de l’abondance des énergies fossiles bon marché se heurte à la raréfaction des réserves, à la hausse des cours et au réchauffement climatique. Une dizaine d'auteurs et d’experts viendront débattre des difficultés de changer de trajectoire de développement, des enjeux géopolitiques, notamment pour les pays émergents, ainsi que du rôle de la coopération internationale dans le domaine de l'énergie.
