    Progressive and conservative parties in Latin America: comparative approaches to challenges in a period of economic downturn

    World political sciences conference, Istanbul 2016

    Environ trois décennies après la vague de récupération des démocraties en Amérique latine, la région a connu une succession d'alternances politiques qui ont tiré bénéfices de la « Décennie dorée ». Celle-ci a engendré croissance et stabilité politique et a également entraîné à moyen terme une consolidation des ordres constitutionnels et démocratiques. Cependant, le phénomène du ralentissement économique a remis en exergue, dans de nombreux pays du continent, les disparités importantes dans la répartition de la richesse entraînant une forte insatisfaction citoyenne et le risque d'un retour à une période d'instabilité politique.

    Contested Hybrid Democracy: Endorsing or Revisiting the Liberal Model in non-Western Countries

    IPSA Istanbul 2016

    Democracy has become a worldwide reference in terms of political organization and governance. While the universal character claimed by such a model has largely been theorized from a Western point of view, the variety of uses and appropriations from non-Western countries, including emerging States, remains unexamined. Disappointed with the results brought by the transition paradigm, the hybrid regimes literature tends to assess the unequal reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries. Nevertheless, the hybrid regimes analytical frame does not exhaust the question of the inner workings of these regimes, since its scientific referential remains based on Western theories and focuses on the uncompleted democratization processes and dynamics. This panel aims at switching the analytical frame towards the reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries through an assessment of uses and reappropriations of this model by political and social actors. Non-Western countries represent an interesting reflection ground for testing appropriation-reject dialectics regarding the Western democratic model. While this model directly inspires some of these countries (India, South Africa or Turkey), it has been rejected by other countries (China and Russia). Are there emerging models of democracy or counter-democracy models in non-Western countries ? We shall address these questions related to the unequal reception of the democratic model in non-Western countries.

    Climatic change, air quality and energy challenges: the role policy in urban transport and preventative measures in developing countries and emerging economies

    Transport is an integral component of sustaining livelihoods: without efficient urban transport mankind would not survive and develop and nor would economies. Yet, despite the immense benefits that transport enables, such as access to jobs, markets, education, and consumer goods and services via global supply chains, the transport sector generates substantial disbenefits. These include dependence on non-renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions, local pollutions, road accidents and inequalities of access. Such disbenefits clearly demonstrate that the transport sector is currently unsustainable economically, environmentally and socially.
