La Démocratie par le droit
Pologne 1989-2016Democracy through law

Government by dividends
Beirut, Cairo, Algiers, Istanbul: have they become ungovernable? Are they too dense, too polluted, too unequal?

Investigating the blurring of boundaries

What does this ascension cost us today, both politically and democratically ?
Conflits et résistances au travailConflict and resistance at work
Workplace conflict has by no means disappeared. Rather, it has adapted to different contexts and taken on new forms that sometimes appeared to be closer to resistance than traditional conflict. It is this diversification of forms of oppression – class, gender, sex and race – as well as their political implications that this book sheds light on.

Health policy in the workplace
