Abstract

This book provides a detailed historical analysis of the Swiss Parliament. It sheds light on how the profiles of parliamentarians have evolved over a century, and recounts the various legislative reforms affecting their status. The author analyses the impact of these reforms on the collective biography of the members of Parliament. The rich data allow for an empirically grounded reflection on how well the parliamentary composition represents the population, for instance in terms of their gender or level of education, and an understanding of the processes of democratization and professionalization of the institution. This research has received a prize from the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lausanne and an incentive award from the Swiss Society for Parliamentary Questions. Andrea Pilotti has a PhD in Political Sciences from the University of Lausanne. He is Research Manager at the Research Observatory for Regional Politics and member of the Swiss Elite Observatory at the University of Lausanne’s Faculty of Social and Political sciences.

Abstract

The study presented in this book for the first time in Switzerland offers a broad empirical and sociological perspective on local religious organizations. From this perspective, religion appears first, as already observed by Weber and Durkheim, through communities regardless of their various profiles. In Switzerland, 5,734 parishes and religious groups have been identified by a national census in 2008. The book underlines the institutional salience of historical churches (Reformed and Roman Catholic) but also the emerging religious plurality, particularly in urban areas. This study sheds a new light upon the effects of secularization (lower limbs and practice) and pluralisation (diversification of religious denominations and traditions) in the organizational field. The analysis of differences and similarities between religious traditions shows a social positioning of the local groups according to the statutes acquired in history. The classical theories − e.g. about the relationship between social status of members and membership groups, types of religious authorities or differences between Church and Sect − are revisited, clarified or reformulated based on an original and representative quantitative data of the Swiss religious field.

Abstract

In the last few decades, the organization of religious education classes in Swiss public school has been the object of profound public scrutiny. In the wake of these debates, most cantons have introduced a new course under the responsibility of the State in which a plurality of religions is presented. The attribution of this new competence to the State has prompted the reaction of various religious communities and has stimulated, within these communities, a reflection on their social role. Drawing on forty in-depth interviews with representatives of different religious communities, this study analyzes the strategies used by religious actors to position themselves in the public sphere. Against this backdrop, the study discusses the evolution of the relationships between religious communities and society and puts forward new perspectives in the sociological debate on the public presence of religion. &#xD;

Abstract

The Swiss vocational education and training model is at the heart of an unprecedented enthusiasm. Both in Switzerland and abroad, it is praised for its management based on a public-private partnership, for its ability to integrate a large number of young people in beyond mandatory education and, finally, for the quality of the training provided which is in line with the labour market needs. However, these assets may hide the high complexity of this model and the challenges it currently faces and will face in the future. Gathering thirteen chapters from specialists, this book offers a close look at the Swiss vocational education and training model. It provides the factual information and the theoretical tools necessary to understand its complexity and identify its major challenges. &#xD;

Abstract

Cette publication trouve son origine dans le séminaire « L’offre de livres numériques à destination des bibliothèques de lecture publique : un regard international » qui a été organisé entre mai 2014 et mars 2015 par l’Enssib (Hans Dillaerts et Benoît Epron), l’ARALD (Antoine Fauchié) et les laboratoires DICEN-CNAM (Ghislaine Chartron) et ELICO (Lyon) ; il a bénéficié du soutien de l’ARC 5 et de la Région Rhône-Alpes. Le séminaire ayant reçu de nombreux retours positifs de la part des professionnels de la chaîne du livre et des chercheurs travaillant sur le livre numérique, les organisateurs ont souhaité rassembler les textes afin de capitaliser sur les retours d’expériences et les savoirs construits. L’ouvrage s’attache ainsi à analyser et identifier les différents modèles qui sont mis en œuvre pour développer des services de prêt public du livre numérique. Une approche de comparaison internationale est privilégiée pour appréhender l’ensemble des enjeux liés au développement du prêt numérique et de la lecture numérique sous l’angle technico-économique, politique, juridique, professionnel et des usages. Les contributions correspondent aux interventions et aux transcriptions réalisées à l’issue des séances du séminaire, ainsi qu’à des articles extérieurs afin d’enrichir l’analyse.

Abstract

Finally the weekend! The time to escape the dense city to enjoy quieter en-vironments? While leisure occupies a central place in our lifestyles, what is the relationship between urban styles and mobility? Are the inhabitants of city centers more mobile, seeking a greener environment in which to spend their free time? This would be the "barbecue effect," which invites stopping advocating for density and upgrading to suburban styles. This book explores this controversy by examining the cases of Geneva and Zurich, to answer some questions: Does the barbecue effect really exist?

Abstract

What does it mean to work in the retail sector today? In Switzerland, two giants share almost the whole market. In order to stay competitive, they intensify the work, demand more availability from their employees and deskill certain positions. How do the store managers achieve profitability objectives despite the constraints in this context? How do the cashiers cope with the increasing automation of their jobs? How do the shelf workers reconcile customer contact with ever-increasing time constraints? This book explains how neoliberal working time patterns are taking place in the supermarkets and questions the evolution of the working day in our society. The study is based on 78 interviews with managers, shop floor workers and union officers. Nicola Cianferoni is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Geneva and the University of Neuchâtel in Switzerland.&#xD;

Abstract

This collective work explores the themes of religious coexistence and the broaching of religious frontiers in Europe during the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries. It intends to open new areas for discussion on a European level through the bias of a dia-logue between researchers subscribing to highly different national traditions (France, Netherlands, Switzerland, and Germany). It acts through the contributions gathered here to analyse the possibilities and different methods of interfaith con-tact by using as a departure point the experience of religious differences: The ex-perience garnered by diverse social actors – ecclesiastical, magisterial, academics and nobility.

Abstract

Through the paths of three resorts, this book examines how the areas af-fected by tourism and mobility change, and questions the notion of territorial value. The development of territories is understood through their mobility: the mobility not only of people but also of knowledge and information, as well as markets. Today, in a "hypermobile" world, places must be connect-ed. These networks lead to a standardization of territories. However, to at-tract tourists, media attention, and investors, territories must stand out! It is this process of staging and construction of value that this book presents.
