Carbon Offsetting: An Ethical and Psychological Approach

The carbon offset market is becoming more and more popular. However, 57 until now few studies have attempted to approach the phenomenon from a social sciences’ perspective. By distinguishing three levels of analysis – the technical, psychological and ethical aspects – this work has a double objective: to better understand the mechanisms underlying the offsetting phenomenon and to evaluate its effectiveness as a greenhouse gas emissions mitigation tool. The comments made about the system concern the voluntary carbon offset market mostly, with a special focus put on its application in developing countries. Some observations however are valid for the Clean ...

The Intergenerational Equity: A Concept to Build for Sustainability, the Case of Global Warning

Defined as “the relation that each generation has with the last or future generations in the use... of the natural or cultural resources of planet”, Intergeneration equity (here I.E) imposes rules of optimal use of these resources on each generation. But it still remains a vague concept which needs a clear definition and poses some philosophical problems. Its emergence in right of the environment followed the scientific awakening on the ecological threats, in the years 1960 and led to a greater implication of the United Nations to coordinate international actions in environment field. The conferences of Stockholm in 1972 and ...

Climatic Hazard Mitigation Through Risk and Resilience Committees in Nepal

Nepal lies in an ecologically fragile and seismic region with a history of devastating Glacier Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF), landslides and earthquakes. Increases in temperature could increase the frequency and magnitude of climatic disaster occurrences. Winter snow in Kathmandu in 2007 after nearly 65 years absence, frequent flood events since 2000, and an increased number of glacier lakes in the upper Himalayas indicates that climate change may already be having a significant impact. Disaster events in Nepal are known to impact disproportionately on poor and marginalised people who live in more exposed environments during risky times and without adequate forms ...

Debate

The European Science Foundation (ESF) and the French Foundation of the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (FMSH) (within the Entre-Sciences programme) have agreed to jointly develop a new conference series in environmental sciences; an effort to actively foster exchanges between scientists working in the humanities and social sciences and their colleagues in the life and natural sciences. This interdisciplinary conference present the new advances in the modelling of the Global Change that combines Geosciences and Economics, with a perspective view from history - given the novelty of their interrelations – and from political science – given the impact of the ...

A-t-on enterré l'espace public ? Partie 1

Journées d’études organisées par Publislam et le réseau Pratiques Politiques locales (Iris), Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris. Le concept d’espace public – concept générique, analytique ou normatif – a occupé, pendant plusieurs décennies, une place centrale dans la pensée du politique. Mais aujourd’hui son usage connaît à la fois des décentrements et une certaine relégation. D’une part, sa fécondité heuristique semble s’étioler : dans les sociétés occidentales contemporaines des notions voisines, mais alternatives, prétendent s’y substituer, conduisant à une sorte de disqualification qui mérite d’être analysée. D’autre part, il est enrôlé pour analyser des situations ...

Traduire : figures du rythme, figures non traduites

André Markowicz aborde différentes questions liées au rythme dans la traduction :  « Que signifie traduire le rythme ? » — dans quelle mesure la perception du rythme est-elle transmissible ? quand pouvons-nous parler d’équivalence rythmique ? et que faire pour ce qui reste en dehors de toute équivalence ? — de cet en-dehors que j’appelle “figures”, pas même des présences, pas même des contours, — comment faire sentir ces existences non verbales sans lesquelles rien du texte n’a de sens, sans lesquelles le sens et l’auteur se trouvent en exil ?  Les discutants Béatrice Gonzales-Vangell ...
