Des monographies présentant les résultats de recherches inédites dans les différentes disciplines des sciences humaines et sociales.
With environmental urgency facing us everywhere, innovative urban projects to reduce pollution and waste are emerging around the world.
But how useful are these experiences on a global scale?
Is it possible to make a town durable without being detrimental to its surroundings?
This book sets out to explore these questions.
Nouveaux modèles de gestion des ressources
Dominique Lorrain, Charlotte Halpern
This book follows the trajectories of female unionists and recounts the everyday difficulties they faced in daring to break into these male strongholds.
Their rich and moving narratives reveal a whole sphere of social reality on an often-neglected subject, that of women's voices in unionism.
Défendre les intérêts des femmes au travail
This book closely observes the evolution, punctuated by periodic experiments and spectacular turnarounds, towards one of most significant institutional reforms in post-war United Kingdom : the bank of England.
Une marche erratique vers l'indépendance 1977-2007
Sylviane de Saint Seine
The politicisation of biodiversity is the subject of this pluri-disciplinary book, which brings together a range of scientific fields & covers previously neglected dimensions of this issue, including economies of scale, the political impact of the scientific categories mobilised by actors & the instrumentalization of international norms by states.
Daniel Compagnon, Estienne Rodary
This book provides an overview of the range and limits of the measures and the law on transparency, anti-corruption and economic modernization, presented by actors directly involved in current movements of regulation.
L'exigence d'éthique dans les mouvements financiers
Ideologies are still active but they are divided, compartmentalised, through a mosaic of references, standards and objectives.
The multidisciplinary perspective of this volume. Drawing on philosophy, history, art history, political science, sociology, the authors question the political usages of individual and collective belief.
Usages politiques de la croyance
How are the "mega-farms" organised? What are their logics and modes of action? In what spaces do they situate themselves? How does a family farm become an agricultural company? What kind of actors are involved? What are their attitudes towards politics? What conflicts do they provoke?
The first study of an emerging global phenomenon.
De la ferme à la firme
François Purseigle, Geneviève Nguyen
Twenty years after they were introduced in France, generic drugs remain controversial. For some they are authentic drugs, upon which the survival of our health insurance system depends. For others, they are poor imitations which sacrifice health in the name of economics.
The development of these generics has reconfigured the French health system.
Sociologie des génériques en France
For two years, sociologist Myriam Joël collected the secrets of 80 detainees and 70 professionals and volunteers working in female detention. Her study reveals a surprisingly free way of speaking about a subject that is often considered illegitimate and ignored in social sciences: women's sexuality in prison.
Running counter to mythical narratives, this book demonstrates how a small number of parties came to win a new political monopoly in Polland, the country of the powerful Solidarnosc union, and how they established a limited democracy and "partyocracy" on the ruins of authoritarianism.
Beirut, Cairo, Algiers, Istanbul: have they become ungovernable? Are they too dense, too polluted, too unequal? By delving into the fabric of their networks and institutions, this book shows that the major difficulties of these towns reflect not the lack of government, but rather its specific forms.
Gouverner par les rentes
By tracing the role the profession of business lawyer has acquired within the confines of the state and the market, the authors of this fascinating investigation explore the contours of this grey area at the edge of political and administrative institutions. What does this ascension cost us today, both politically and democratically ?
Enquête sur un grand brouillage
Pierre France, Antoine Vauchez
This book questions the mechanisms that lead to this blackout and analyses the way in which workplace health policies are developed in France. It shows how the instruments and procedures for managing professional risks are now conceived by and for experts, which makes it very difficult for workers' representativeand citizens to appropriate them.
Les politiques de santé au travail
It is the shift in perception and the transformation of a feminist struggle into a political issue that this book explores. It shows how, from the 1970s, feminists identified sexual and domestic violence, proposed specific ways of dealing with it and developed an explanatory framework linking it to structural relations between men and women.
Du combat féministe à la cause publique
In this book, a team of researchers from CEVIPOF suggests that what is "common" is no longer based on what is public, but on what is private. That politics is now evolving in communitarian spaces of all kinds, family, religious denominations, political parties, oligarchies...
Pascal Perrineau, Luc Rouban
In homage to the pluralist political sociology practiced and defended by this French pioneer of experimental survey research, this volume provides an up-to-date overview of current research and major controversies in this field of political science today, thus also serving as an introduction to the analysis of political behaviour.
Je vote, tu contestes, elle cherche...
Olivier Fillieule, Florence Haegel
Dans la vie sociale des objets, la phase « déchet » ne devrait plus être que transitoire. Alors que nous continuons de produire de plus en plus de biens tout en prétendant limiter les déchets, nos objets-restes doivent redevenir des richesses.

Nathalie Benelli, Delphine Corteel
Drawing on hitherto overlooked sources, Christophe Defeuilley presents three urban histories, in London, New York, and Paris.
