  • Penser la formation des adultes avec Zygmunt Bauman : Société liquide, individualisme hypermoderne et éducation tout au long de la vie

    Roelens, Camille (Université de SherbrookeChamp social éditionsÉrudit, 2022)
    Cet article saisit la question des fondements philosophiques de la formation des adultes en faisant fond sur les thèses du penseur critique de la modernité tardive Zygmunt Bauman (1925-2017). Le texte s’ouvre par un regard englobant et synthétique sur l’oeuvre intellectuelle de Bauman (1). Il isole ensuite plus spécifiquement ce qui en son sein nous aide à prendre la mesure de la centralité de l’éducation tout au long de la vie comme défi majeur de ce que l’auteur appelle une vie liquide (3). La focale est ensuite encore resserrée sur ce qui, dans la pensée baumanienne, permet de faire signe vers un type polymorphe de formation des adultes à même de permettre aux individus contemporains tout à la fois d’apprendre à naviguer et d’apprendre en naviguant dans un monde problématique (3). Une ouverture conclusive permet enfin de récapituler les apports les plus décisifs de Bauman dans le cadre problématique qui est celui du présent numéro et de dégager les linéaments ou les têtes de pont de ce qu’une discussion de fond du diagnostic baumanien sur le monde hypermoderne et la philosophie de l’éducation qu’il requiert pourrait être (4).
  • Les élections en Afrique : analyse des comportements et pistes normatives de gestion des conflits

    Diangitukwa, Fweley (Globethics.net, 2022)
    Chacun s’interroge sur l’instabilité et les violences postélectorales. Censées faciliter l’alternance au pouvoir, les élections sont devenues une véritable source d’instabilité des institutions. Ce livre se consacre à l’analyse des élections en Afrique et des causes à l’origine de nouveaux phénomènes, qui entraînent des morts inutiles et détruisent les économies nationales encore faibles et fragiles. L’auteur examine l’origine d’un remarquable mimétisme chez les dirigeants et en montre les limites en politique publique, afin de présenter douze propositions originales pour sortir l’Afrique des crises postélectorales successives.
  • Le financement public des campagnes électorales en RD Congo, le parrainage et la taxe parafiscale comme remède à la pléthore des candidats aux échéances électorales

    Makamba Mbalnda, Benjamin (MISC, 2022-04-27)
    Le présent article est une contribution à la promotion d’un Etat de droit en RDC, il soutient qu’il y ait l’égalité de chances entre les acteurs électoraux (candidats) pendant la campagne électorale. Le constat est que la pratique d’autofinancement a des conséquences sur l’acceptation de la vérité des urnes, surtout lorsque les candidats se dépouillent de leurs biens mobiliers et immobiliers, aux fins de subvenir aux besoins de leurs campagnes électorales. C’est l’une des causes principales des contentieux fondés et nonfondés qui surviennent après la proclamation des résultats. En France, le législateur instaure le parrainage des candidatures, ce qui fort malheureusement vient par exemple de pousser Marine Le Pen à suspendre sa course à l’accession à la magistrature suprême, pour n’avoir pas réunie le nombre de signatures exigées. Ce système permet de filtrer les candidats, pour ne pas dire éviter la pléthore des candidats. En RD Congo, l’étude propose que soit alignées dans la liste des parrains, une frange de la société civile, à l’instar des hauts Magistrats, des Professeurs d’Universités autres que les élus du peuple (les parlementaires), les électeurs du Bâtonnier National de l’ordre des Avocats, ainsi que les conseils des ordres professionnels légalement institués. L’étude mise sur la création d’une caisse, qui sera créditée à partir de la collecte des fonds durant les 5 années du mandat électoral. L’étude propose l’institution d’une taxe parafiscale sur les rémunérations des postes politiques, au cas où, le trésor public ne saurait faire face.
  • Quali beni comuni? La tradizione fra ragione pratica e sfera pubblica

    Monti, P (2013)
    La trattazione del rapporto tra l’evoluzione delle forme della razionalità pratica e le trasformazioni della sfera pubblica è stato in anni recenti un luogo privilegiato per la ripresa dell’attenzione speculativa intorno al concetto di tradizione. Tale ripresa ha avuto matrici divergenti, dal Neocomunitarismo, al Neopragmatismo, ai contributi di origine sociologica. All’interno di tali trattazioni, il concetto di tradizione è stato variamente riformulato a partire da esigenze teoriche analoghe. Pur nella varietà degli approcci disciplinari e degli orientamenti teoretici, si è rilevata infatti come problematica la progressiva svalutazione del ruolo delle tradizioni ai fini della comprensione dei beni comuni e dei fini collettivi. Si considerano dunque tre contributi esemplari nei quali la nozione stessa di tradizione è stata variamente ripercorsa come ricerca morale razionale storicamente in evoluzione da parte di A. MacIntyre, come forma strutturante le pratiche democratiche da parte di J. Stout, come luogo di mediazione fra la dimensione dell’agire comunicativo e l’insieme delle pratiche sociali da parte di A. Salvatore. La tradizione viene dunque collocata al crocevia fra l’evoluzione delle forme della deliberazione razionale pratica sui beni comuni e la costruzione storica delle norme, delle istituzioni e delle procedure proprie della dimensione pubblica del vivere. Su tali premesse suggeriamo dunque la possibilità di intendere le tradizioni come forme storiche di articolazione cooperativa della ragione pratica, necessarie alla definizione e alla realizzazione dei beni comuni. In quanto tali, le tradizioni sono anche condizione epistemica di esercizio delle pratiche democratiche. La ridefinizione di un concetto di tradizione che sposti l’attenzione dal deposito dei contenuti di conoscenza all’evoluzione delle forme di esercizio cooperativo della ragione pratica rende possibile, in prospettiva, una fruttuosa ripresa di altre nozioni collegate, come quelle di esemplarità, di simbolo, di immaginario condiviso, nonché una diversa comprensione del significato etico e politico della dimensione religiosa all’interno dello spazio pubblico.
  • Care Ethics, Democratic Citizenship and the State [electronic resource] /

    Urban, Petr.editor.edthttp://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt; Ward, Lizzie.editor.edthttp://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt; SpringerLink (Online service)
    This book reflects on theoretical developments in the political theory of care and new applications of care ethics in different contexts. The chapters provide original and fresh perspectives on the seminal notions and topics of a politically formulated ethics of care. It covers concepts such as democratic citizenship, social and political participation, moral and political deliberation, solidarity and situated attentive knowledge. It engages with current debates on marketizing and privatizing care, and deals with issues of state care provision and democratic caring institutions. It speaks to the current political and societal challenges, including the crisis of Western democracy related to the rise of populism and identity politics worldwide. The book brings together perspectives of care theorists from three different continents and ten different countries and gives voice to their unique local insights from various socio-political and cultural contexts.

  • Frieden, Wohlstand und Menschenrechte rund ums Mittelmeer" – Die Erklärung von Barcelona (1995) = Peace, prosperity, and human rights in the Mediterranean area - the Barcelona Declaration

    Grussendorf, Johan S. U.; Hoffmann, Friedhelm. (Clio-Online / Themenportal Europäische Geschichte, 2010-07)
    This essay undertakes a critique of the Barcelona process and its meagre outcome by analyzing its premises and contradictions on both sides of the envolved parties, the EU as well as the so-called Euro-Mediterranean Third Countries, as laid down in the Barcelona Declaration. It is argued that the inherent but concealed contradictions came to the fore in due time and were mainly responsible for the lack of implementation of the initially proclaimed noble aims.
  • Evangélicos en Chile Democrático (1990-2008): Radiografía al centésimo aniversario

    Fediakova, Euguenia; Parker, Cristian (Universidad Arturo Prat, 2009)
    Desde restablecimiento de la democracia en Chile la presencia de evangélicos en la sociedad es cada vez más notoria. Los hábitos cívicos que forman comunidades religiosas en sus participantes, junto con eventual aumento de su nivel socioeconómico y educacional, transformarían a evangélicos en una �ciudadanía cultural�, es decir, en una minoría reconocida, completamente insertada en la sociedad democrática y pluralista. Sin embargo, el estudio demostró que pese a una amplia labor comunitaria que desarrollan iglesias evangélicas y su valoración a la democracia, este segmento sigue siendo despolitizado y apartado de grandes temas nacionales. Es una ciudadanía que está consciente de sus derechos, pero actúa no desde la perspectiva nacional, sino defendiendo intereses corporativos, lo que diminuye su inserción en la democracia.
  • Warriors, allies or spectators: a look at stakeholders’ perception of the role of libraries and librarians in the fake news phenomenon

    Gilman, Mirna; Gaso, Gordana; Lundman, Madeleine; Zilic, Ure; Fontanin, Matilde (Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Osijek, Croatiaplace:Osijek, Croatia, 2019)
    The recent debate on fake news and critical thinking is invading the national and international scene. Strategies to counterfeit the phenomenon are issued everywhere: IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations) built a campaign around its infographic tool; at the same time, the Internet giants are beginning to change their attitude and position with respect to fake news as a result of public pressure – e.g. Facebook and the scandal of Cambridge Analytica. Libraries and librarians think they could play an important role, being their job about knowledge and information management, but does anyone else think along the same lines? An article published on Science with the explicit goal of starting a "science of fake news", advocated an interdisciplinary approach, yet hardly any reference was made to Library and Information studies. The same happened in the recent EU Public consultation on fake news and online disinformation - neither libraries nor schools were counted among the stakeholders. Someone may argue that news is outside the scope of the library mission; yet preserving documentation and helping people to find and evaluate information effectively definitely is: the actions undertaken by EBLIDA (European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation) advocate for a role for libraries. Based on this scenario, the present paper will reflect on the concept of fake news in the light of library and information science – thus defining the field and its limits. Subsequently, it will analyse policy documents addressing the issue, to verify whether libraries and library studies are considered stakeholders by external observers. Method: documents on Fake News will be scanned looking for mentions of libraries on the websites of European Union, USA, Canada, Great Britain and Italy. An overall scan will also be carried out on the role of libraries in relation to fake news in research articles.
  • Per una società democratica della conoscenza

    Rufo, Fabrizio (Tipolito Subalpinaplace:Milano, 2017)
    Science and democracy are founded on the same values. In contemporary society, this common genesis relates with social organization founded on universal suffrage. One of the challenges of the modern knowledge society is the development of more appropriate forms of democratic participation to incorporate scientific innovation and technology through an expansion of citizenship rights.

  • Educación y cultura de la legalidad

    Mahecha López, Eliana María (Universidad Autónoma del Caribe, Facultad de Jurisprudencia-Programa de Derecho, 2014-07-01)
    La cultura de la legalidad es una estrategia contra la violencia y contra la corrupción que tiene como objetivo, generar un cambio cultural que se manifieste en el rechazo social abierto a este tipo de conductas. Esto implica que se eduque a la población para que opte por conductas probas y por la resolución pacífica de los conflictos. Para que tenga un carácter performativo y preventivo, el ideal es que se implemente a nivel escolar de tal suerte que la lucha contra el flagelo de la corrupción sea mucho más incisiva de lo que ha sido hasta ahora. Este artículo es resultad del proyecto de investigación titulado "La cultura de legalidad: una opción de lucha contra la corrupción", que se propuso como objetivo analizar las causas del fenómeno, para poder luego plantear soluciones a nivel educativo tanto para los funcionarios públicos como para niños en edad escolar. Se utilizó un método de análisis cualitativo, en el que se consultaron diversas fuentes de expertos en el tema y se hicieron algunas entrevistas a personas que han implementado la estrategia de la cultura de la legalidad. A partir de la información obtenida, se hizo una reflexión sobre lo que debe incluir una estrategia de cultura de la legalidad a nivel educativo para garantizar su eficacia.
  • Humanismo cívico y medios de comunicación social: Hacia una hermenéutica mediática de la esperanza

    Irizar, Liliana Beatriz; González-Camargo, Javier Nicolás (Universidad de La Sabana, 2008-12-01)
    Existe una propuesta desde la filosofía política denominada humanismo cívico. Este modelo sociopolítico, que posee claras raíces aristotélicas, ha sido rehabilitado recientemente por el filósofo español Alejandro Llano. El humanismo cívico nos invita a repensar la democracia desde parámetros genuinamente humanos, puesto que en el centro de sus reflexiones sitúa a la persona y su dignidad esencial. Esta propuesta considera crucial el papel de los medios de comunicación en la tarea de humanizar la vida socio-política. Se requiere para eso una formación rigurosa de los expertos en comunicación de modo que contribuyan a transmitir la información basándose en lo que se denomina aquí una hermenéutica de la esperanza.
  • Do values in education create spaces for democratic citizenship?

  • Resistances against Hydropower Projects as Place-based Struggles: The Case of Artvin, Turkey

    Nedelsky, Jennifer; POLITICAL SCIENCE; Aslan, Ozlem (University of Toronto, 2019-06)
    The dissertation examines the implications of place-based action for a rethinking of democratic politics. The research is based on the struggles against hydropower projects in Artvin, a small city in the Black Sea Region of Turkey. The dissertation traces the effects of the dams as spatial interventions in the region based on the accounts of the inhabitants, field observations, official reports, and academic articles; it maps the institutional structures that enable these spatial interventions and reveals ways citizens challenge these institutional structures. The dissertation offers a phenomenological approach as an important addition to social constructivist approaches to understanding the struggles against the run-of-the-river type hydropower projects in the region. Social constructivist approaches to place-based struggles have been significant in unpacking the power dynamics within which spatial interventions are made possible and are resisted. These approaches evaluated place-based struggles based on their handling of heterogeneity and difference, their potential in dismantling of capitalism, their ability to articulate their problems in more structural terms and their ability to be extroverted and situate themselves in broader networks. Phenomenological approaches enable us to articulate the emphasis these struggles put on the significance of “implacement” as a social and physical experience for living beings. The dissertation argues that the anti-hydropower struggles in Turkey—through their emphasis on protecting “life spaces”— underlined a form of placial ethics. “Life spaces” encompassed both human networks of relationships and their embeddedness in the entire eco-system. This placial ethics challenged the existing cost-benefit analysis and redefined the destruction of landscape as a collective loss. This ethics-based politics rendered participatory collective decision-making imperative for spatial interventions and required prioritization of politics of place over partisan politics. The politics aimed at protecting life space thus redefines the nature of interests at stake as well as the nature of democratic participation.

  • EU Citizenship: Twenty Years On : Special Issue German Law Journal

    Mindus, Patricia (German Law Journal GbR, 2014)
    The Maastricht Treaty (the “Treaty”) first introduced the status of EU citizenship. The twentieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty, marked in 2013, was declared the European Year of the Citizen. Union citizenship has been understood as the world’s first post-national citizenship, although it is still complementary to national citizenships. EU citizens enjoy rights that have been expanded, modified, and reinterpreted in light of the EU integration process. The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has been a driving force in this process. This twentieth anniversary has provided the occasio for this special issue. Indeed, much has happened over the last two decades. The Maastricht Treaty entered into force on the heels of German reunification, and afterwards, a series of EU treaties followed: The Amsterdam Treaty, the Nice Charter of Fundamental Rights, the aborted constitutionalization process and the Rome Treaty in 2004, and the Treaty of Lisbon. The Euro took over former national currencies in 2002; the enlargement process led to today’s twenty-eight Member States. But the ratio of this special issue is based on other events as linked to the 2008 financial crisis, bailouts, the fiscal compact, and similar measures. In a nutshell, the timeliness of this volume is linked to the current financial disarray. Since prognosis presupposes diagnosis, no further words are necessary as to the importance of this task. It is (almost) self-evident that before taking action and preparing for the future, one needs to address the very first question: Nosce te ipsum...

  • News and the empowerment of citizens

    Lewis, Justin (GBR, 2011-03-01)
    This article argues that we need to take the democratic promise of news seriously and find ways to advance that promise. It begins by considering both the importance of news to democratic citizenship, and its failure to deliver in ways that do not compound social inequalities. It argues against more optimistic accounts of the state of democratic citizenship, but finds that the notion of public service journalism often lapses into a class-specific discourse for the information-rich. Meanwhile, current news values are contradictory and incoherent, allowing us space to build upon the democratic ideals in journalistic philosophy. The article then argues that citizenship should be brought from the margins of news to its centre. This means implicating citizenship into the news’s mode of address, of going beyond the narrow narratives of current news values and addressing broad citizenship concerns.
