Il y a un peu plus de cinquante ans, le 8 décembre 1965, le pape Paul VI promulguait la constitution pastorale Gaudium et Spes. Ce document majeur du concile Vatican II, qui évoque largement la dignité du mariage et de la famille et insiste sur la place primordiale de l’amour conjugal, mettait fin à la doctrine nataliste absolue d’autrefois. Toutefois, moins de trois ans plus tard, l’encyclique Humanae Vitae vint réaffirmer la doctrine traditionnelle de l’Eglise en ce qui concerne la prohibition de la contraception artificielle.

This edited collection, in honour of the late political scientist Peter Mair, contains original chapters that are directly linked to his theoretical and/or methodological ideas and approaches.

Since the advent of the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, a key turning point in terms of the crystallisation of opposition towards the European Union (EU), Euroscepticism has become a transnational phenomenon. The term ‘Euroscepticism’ has become common political language in all EU member states and, with the advent of the Eurozone, refugee and security crises have become increasingly ‘embedded’ within European nation states.

« Aide sociale : contractualisation et contrepartie »

Revue : Les Politiques Sociales

Sous la direction de Sébastien Avanzo et Mejed Hamzaoui

This volume monitors new developments concerning religious issues, faith-based organizations, State-Church relations and secularism in the EU, which especially during the past two decades have undergone profound changes, changes which continuously and increasingly alter mentalities and habits, whether belief-related or not. In this collective work, thirty authors develop the major themes that are relevant to their country of expertise, while a final chapter is devoted to the role of the European Courts (ECHR and EU).

When, why, and how are democratic institutions reformed? This is the broad question guiding this research, rooted in a context of crises of representative democracy. Core democratic rules can be understood as the formal political rules regulating the direct relationship between elites within the political system, parties, and citizens. They are therefore the cornerstone of the functioning of any political system. This book deals with the context, the motives, and the mechanisms explaining the incidence of institutional engineering in consolidated European democracies between 1990 and 2015. It is centred on the choice of political elites to use - or not to use - institutional engineering as a response to the challenges they face.
