We believe that this initiative will contribute to identify the factors that influence the use of doping substances and methods. From this knowledge we hope to foster future prevention and doping control and to promote ethical behavior in sport.

    Going back to work after an accident at work

    Laboreal journal

    Reprendre un emploi après un accident du travail constitue un objet de recherche et d'intervention dont les analyses méritent une diffusion plus large. C'est la finalité de ce dossier préparé pour la revue Laboreal (laboreal.up.pt) par une équipe de chercheurs, psychologues et sociologues du travail portugais. Ce dossier doit en outre permettre d'identifier de nouvelles formes d'intervention dans et en dehors des entreprises, à différents niveaux, et en prenant en compte les questions touchant à l'amélioration des conditions de travail ainsi qu'à toutes les formes de soutien (individuel, collectif et institutionnel) qui permettraient à la victime d'un accident du travail de retrouver une vie active décente.

    Sexuality(ies) and citizenship(s)

    A  Revista Ibero-americana de Saúde e Cidadania/Iberoamerican publica uma edição especial sobre Sexualidade(s) e Cidadania(s). Os trabalhos devem abordar a importância da sexualidade na sociedade e na conceituação e definição de cidadania. Este número temático aborda a importância da visibilidade da diversidade sexual, a capacitação das diferenças, das minorias sociais e sexuais, e a necessidade de criar, projetar e estabelecer políticas sociais e de saúde pública que melhorem a situação social da diversidade sexual. Diversidade sexual e  cidadania são dois conceitos que fazem parte do desenvolvimento educacional e social de forma global e diversificada. Devem, por isso, ser analisados de forma multidisciplinar. Daí que se  pretenda uma abordagem das ciências da saúde, das ciências sociais e humanas e dos estudos de género das realidades sociais decorrentes de ambos os conceitos.

    Work and cooperation

    Laboreal Dossier

    If human beings are the result of a historical process and not the product of a pre-established plan, it is important to emphasize the significance of cooperative actions for their preservation throughout this process. A path in which work – as a constitutive element of our species – plays a decisive role in these actions. How has cooperation been taking place in formal and informal work activities? How have the current modes of management and their evaluation and training systems contributed to the construction or weakening of cooperative acts at work? What are the requirements to build cooperation?

    Inclusiveness in an ageing society

    The 6th International REIACTIS Conference

    La quête d’une société inclusive dépasse la seule question des aînés et rejoint le rapport des sociétés contemporaines à la diversité. Si le vieillissement des individus et des populations peut induire des spécificités dans les rapports à autrui et à l’environnement, il n’est pas appréhendé ici comme un phénomène hermétique aux autres données, souvent cumulatives, reliées aux processus d’exclusion tels le genre, les situations de handicap, l’origine ethnique, ou encore le niveau socio-économique. Une société inclusive pose d’emblée la question de l’Autre différent. Dans le cadre de son VIe colloque mondial, le REIACTIS invite les chercheurs en sciences humaines et sociales, les décideurs politiques et les citoyens à se réunir sur la scène internationale pour mettre en débat et baliser les enjeux d’une société inclusive.

    Mediation: A transversal approach with multiple purposes

    Xth Congress World mediation forum

    The WMF’s mission is the development and exchange of knowledge, information and competencies in all mediation areas, notably through the regular organization of international congresses for more than fifteen years. The Xth Conference of the World Mediation Forum wants to devote itself to trying to understand how mediation can be organized and developed when it has so many objectives that are seemingly difficult to reconcile. Thus, the 2019 conference will try to bring, through four highly interrelated roundtables and about forty presentations, a significant contribution to this question: 'Mediation: A transversal approach with multiple purposes?'

    Expressions of emotions : description and interpretation

    Emotions are multimodal responses. They manifest themselves in experience, physiology and behaviour – e.g. in social interaction. Emotional behaviours include the so-called expressions of emotions. Now, expressions are directly accessible to others, in contrast to private experience and the greatest part of physiology. On the one hand, expressions can be seen as symptomatic signs of an organic state or as conventional signs embedded in social interactions. On the other hand, they can be interpreted as acts that transform the situation, doing, as it were, a work on it. Considered as signs or acts, expressions of emotions can be studied experimentally in the laboratory or naturalistically in the field, as well as through a variety of corpora made of texts, videos, films, etc.
