    Food Crises: Challenges, Innovations and Sustainable Change

    From prehistoric times to the present, crises relating to military conflicts, climatic hazards, health challenges, harvest failures, economic decline, environmental change, geopolitical conflicts and many other factors have affected food systems in complex and varying ways, depending on specific constellations, local resilience and the timescales involved. The distinctive aim of this conference is to examine the “creative” and “constructive” potential of the relationship, specifically the extent to which crises can trigger innovation and sustainable change within food systems.

    Gold: wealth or curse?

    Revue « Afrique contemporaine »

    Recent years have brought a dramatic upsurge in Africa’s gold output – boosting the export earnings and goverment revenues of producer countries, fuelling hopes of additional resources for development. But many also fear there could be negative spillovers, particularly in eroding stability and good governance, the so-called “resource curse”. These are just two facets of what is a wide debate debate, as the gold sector has multiple economic, political, environmental and symbolic ramifications. This issue of Afrique contemporaine aims to provide studies on different aspects, focusing as much as possible on the link between gold and the various forms of conflict.

    Corporations facing inflation

    L’inflation est de retour. Bien que les économistes considèrent volontiers qu’elle serait transitoire, il y a de bonnes raisons de penser qu’elle pourrait durer. Le retour de l’inflation est-il un retour aux années 1970 ? Les entreprises, la technologie et l’environnement économique et social ont beaucoup changé depuis cette période. Des nouvelles études sur les adaptations des organisations à l’inflation deviennent donc indispensables et urgentes. Ce numéro spécial de Gérer et comprendre souhaite confronter les analyses des économistes avec des enquêtes plus qualitatives portant sur les conduites adoptées par les directions d’entreprises, les employés, les sous-traitants, les prestataires de services, les clients, les financiers, les investisseurs et les pouvoirs publics pour s’adapter à l’inflation.

    The French aeronautical industries and the world: international cooperation and internationalisation strategies from the Liberation to the 1980s

    This study day proposes to address several themes linked together by the relations that the French aeronautical industries have established and maintained with various countries and foreign aeronautical firms in a context of recovery, restructuring and development of this French industry. It is intended to highlight international industrial cooperation, its creation and implementation processes as well as the actors involved and their roles in these original partnerships. The aim of this study session is also to reveal the evolution of these forms of collective production and the specialisation of the actors involved during the period under consideration. Finally, it tends to show that far from being limited to industrial cooperation, the global ambition of French aeronautical firms also developed without foreign aid thanks to internationalisation strategies that evolved during the said period.

    Brazil, an independent country ?

    Rethinking “dependency theory” 200 years after 1822

    On the occasion of the bicentennial of Brazil’s proclamation of independence (September 7,1822), this conference examines the paradigm of “dependency theory.” We will consider both how Brazilian intellectuals contributed to dependency theory and what their analyses offer for thinking about Brazil’s independence and place in the world today. The oeuvre of Brazilian dependentistas insisted on the impossibility of understanding the history of Brazil and Latin America without considering the complex dynamics between the national and the international, between domestic political and economic structures and the broader world system of which they were part. This conference, 200 years after Brazil’s formal independence, evaluates the promise and limitations of their analysis, at once historicizing dependency theory and using the authors associated with it to better understand the present.

    Discrimination, management and social movements in the sports world

    International Journal of Sport Science and Physical Education

    This special issue wishes to provide food for thought by bringing together relevant studies that aim to shed more light on the problem of discrimination. It aims to understand the ways in which this ‘field’ of professional and recreational sports operates and how it is implicated/characterized by racism and discrimination. How do the decision-making logics in sports organizations (leagues, clubs, public services, sports industries) produce (or challenge) discourses of discrimination, racism and glass ceilings, glass walls and/or sticky floors? What are the margins for minority ethnic (and majority) employees of the sports world (coaches, referees, selectors, sports agents, etc.) to maneuver, in particular those of a minority background who face discriminations?
