A la gauche de la droite
A la gauche de la droite ! Une position sur l'échiquier politique qui peut sembler paradoxale, mais par laquelle Marie-Anne Montchamp définit son combat et le sens de son action. Héritière à la fois de la tradition gaulliste et d'un fort attachement à la culture de l'individu, elle n'entend pas pour autant se laisser enfermer dans un carcan idéologique. Est-ce lié à une entrée en politique tardive, à une pratique des ressources humaines en entreprise, à la complexité insondable d'une personnalité singulière ?... Toujours est-il que Marie-Anne Montchamp, qui a commencé le quinquennat avec Dominique de Villepin pour le terminer avec Nicolas Sarkozy, excelle à aborder des thématiques et des réflexions peu prisées dans les cercles officiels. D'où les chantiers ouverts dans le domaine du handicap, de la dépendance ou de la psychiatrie... Car, pour elle, la politique doit être laboratoire, riche d'idées et d'initiatives propres à améliorer la vie collective. A partir des préoccupations concrètes de millions de citoyens pour qui le vivre ensemble" a encore un sens, il est temps de faire émerger un nouveau style. Telle est la petite musique originale de "l'autre MAM"..."
Les retraites compl mentaires Agirc Arrco
Le 1er janvier 2019, le régime de retraite complémentaire des cadres (Agirc), qui assure 60 % de leur pension de retraite, fusionnera avec celui des non-cadres (Arrco), qui en assure plus de 30 %. Pourquoi ce rapprochement ? Selon quelles modalités ? Quelles seront les solutions de remplacement pour les cadres ? Afin de comprendre les enjeux de cette réforme et mesurer les conséquences des regroupements qui en découlent dans les groupes de protection sociale à gestion paritaire, il faut en revenir aux origines de ces régimes qui, au lendemain de la guerre, ont permis de sortir les personnes âgées de la misère en leur dispensant des revenus décents. À lire également en Que sais-je ?... La réforme des retraites, Bruno Palier La sécurité sociale, Julien Damon et Benjamin Ferras

In this brilliant work, the most influential philosopher since Sartre suggests that such vaunted reforms as the abolition of torture and the emergence of the modern penitentiary have merely shifted the focus of punishment from the prisoner's body to his soul.
Heritage Regimes and the State
What happens when UNESCO heritage conventions are ratified by a state? How do UNESCO’s global efforts interact with preexisting local, regional and state efforts to conserve or promote culture? What new institutions emerge to address the mandate? The contributors to this volume focus on the work of translation and interpretation that ensues once heritage conventions are ratified and implemented. With seventeen case studies from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and China, the volume provides comparative evidence for the divergent heritage regimes generated in states that differ in history and political organization. The cases illustrate how UNESCO’s aspiration to honor and celebrate cultural diversity diversifies itself. The very effort to adopt a global heritage regime forces myriad adaptations to particular state and interstate modalities of building and managing heritage.
Reflections on the Revolution in Europe
Why has Europe's half-century of mass immigration failed to produce anything resembling the American melting pot? Deadly terrorist attacks and rioting in Muslim neighbourhoods have now forced Europeans, caught up in a demographic revolution they never expected, to question its success and to confront the limits of their long-held liberal values. By overestimating its need for immigrant labour and underestimating the culture-shaping potential of religion, has Europe trapped itself in a problem to which it has no obvious solution? Christopher Caldwell has been reporting on the politics and culture of Islam in Europe for over a decade. In his provocative and unflinching book Reflections on the Revolution in Europe, he reveals the anger of natives and newcomers alike. He describes asylum policies that have served illegal immigrants better than refugees. He exposes the strange interaction of welfare states and Third World traditions, the anti-Americanism that brings natives and newcomers together, and the arguments over women and sex that drive them apart. And he examines the dangerous tendency of politicians to defuse tensions surrounding Islam by curtailing the rights of all. Based on extensive reporting and offering trenchant analysis, Reflections on the Revolution in Europe is destined to become the classic work on how Muslim immigration permanently reshaped the West.
Dependency Or Interdependency in Old Age
Although this monograph "Dependency o r interdependency in old age" is not the first publication o f the European Social Sciences Research C- mittee (ESSRC) o f the International Association o f Gerontology, I a m happy, as former chairman o f the Committee (1964-1975), to introduce this book to the readers, together with the present chairman. So far the activities o f the Committee have consisted o f co-operating in organizing the scientific programme o f the tri-annual congresses o f the International Association o f Gerontology (lAG), and in organizing sm- ler o r bigger symposia and colloquia for social gerontologists. Sometimes these meetings were mainly organized for European researchers only, sometimes several concurrent colloquia took place in which Americans and o t h e r non-Europeans participated. T h e Committee, the oldest o f the lAG, was established at a scientific meeting in 1954 at Sheffield (U. K. ) A f t e r that year colloquia were held in 1956 near Copenhagen 1 (Denmark), in 1957 at M e r a n o2 (Italy), in 1959 at Assisi (Italy), in 1960 a t Berkeley (Cal.
New Developments in Civil and Commercial Mediation
By means of the analysis of more than 20 national jurisdictions of different legal and geographical origin this book provides a general understanding of the developments that civil and commercial mediation is currently undertaking across the world. The book combines 25 national reports with a General Report analyzing the major trends in civil and commercial mediation worldwide. A number of the key variables that make mediation so effective are studied in depth in the book. The concept of mediation, that varies from country to country. Its legal framework and the branches of public and private law in which it is used. The legal condition of the mediation agreement and its relevant conditions of form and content, the responsibilities of the parties in the event that they violate this agreement and the effects of this agreement on potential recourse to the courts or to arbitration, as well as with regard to pending cases. As well as the role played by the mediator, his or her appointment or designation, legal and ethical responsibilities, and the role of institutions in mediation. As well as the mediation process, its applicable rules and principles and its costs are analyzed on comparative basis. The book also pays special attention to the outcome of mediation. The enforceability of the settlement reached both in domestic and cross-border mediations constitutes a basic element for the success of the institution and is thoroughly studied. This volume constitutes a unique instrument for those interested on mediation, either practitioners, judges or academics.
Long March to Freedom
Running late for work one morning in September 1994, Tom Hargrove, communications director for an international agricultural aid organization in Cali, Colombia, was mildly annoyed when he spotted a roadblock, or reten, manned by soldiers in fatigues. He chafed at the delay, but told himself that guerrillas and kidnappers didn't operate on a main highway in broad daylight. But Hargrove had been dreadfully mistaken. Despite his assertions that he worked for a non-profit agricultural agency, he was forced at gunpoint into a vehicle and driven into the mountains by communist narco-terrorists who believed he was a valuable hostage. For almost a year, Hargrove was held by the guerillas and moved from one remote location to another. To maintain his grip on sanity, he recorded his daily experiences in makeshift journals: in a checkbook; on children's notebooks; and on scraps of paper scrounged during his ordeal. Hargrove's story, originally published in 1995, was the basis for the major motion picture Proof of Life, starring Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan. Now available again in paperback, Long March to Freedom chronicles one man's spirited determination to hang onto life and faith amid nearly impossible circumstances.
Many Baby Boomers still recall crouching under their grade-school desks in frequent bomb drills during the Cuban Missile Crisis—a clear representation of how terrified the United States was of nuclear war. Thus far, we have succeeded in preventing such catastrophe, and this is partly due to the various treaties signed in the 1960s forswearing the use of nuclear technology for military purposes. In Fallout, Grégoire Mallard seeks to understand why some nations agreed to these limitations of their sovereign will—and why others decidedly did not. He builds his investigation around the 1968 signing of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), which, though binding in nature, wasn’t adhered to consistently by all signatory nations. Mallard looks at Europe’s observance of treaty rules in contrast to the three holdouts in the global nonproliferation regime: Israel, India, and Pakistan. He seeks to find reasons for these discrepancies, and makes the compelling case that who wrote the treaty and how the rules were written—whether transparently, ambiguously, or opaquely—had major significance in how the rules were interpreted and whether they were then followed or dismissed as regimes changed. In honing in on this important piece of the story, Mallard not only provides a new perspective on our diplomatic history, but, more significantly, draws important conclusions about potential conditions that could facilitate the inclusion of the remaining NPT holdouts. Fallout is an important and timely book sure to be of interest to policy makers, activists, and concerned citizens alike.
