For technical and logistical reasons, disabled people (and especially deaf people) are excluded from opinion surveys. This leads to the situation that deaf people remain unrepresented in the statistical tendencies emerging from such quantitative opinion surveys. This observation is at the heart of the research presented in this work. This thesis consists of four chapters, each one tackling specific aspects of the implications of this lack of representation of deaf people in opinion surveys. The first chapter gives a short description of the situation of deaf people, from a sociological point of view. The second chapter discusses the moral and ethical issues raised by the lack of representation of deaf people in opinion surveys, in a more philosophical perspective. In the third chapter, we present new adapted methods making it possible to conduct opinion surveys among deaf people. Thanks to a new type of electronic questionnaire including sign language videos, we more specifically show how deaf people can be surveyed for different purposes. On the basis of these new techniques, the final chapter offers a commented statistical analysis of the deaf people situation in French-speaking Belgium. [less ▲]

This article presents the results of the first survey conducted in Belgium about the interest and knowledge in astronomy. Two samples were studied, the public at large (667 questionnaires) and students (2589 questionnaires), but the results are generally similar in both samples. We evaluated people’s interest, main information source, and attitudes towards astronomy, as well as their supposed and actual knowledge of the subject. The main conclusion is that, despite a poor self-confidence, people do know the basic astronomical concepts. However, that knowledge is not deeply rooted, as reasoning questions show well-spread misconceptions and/or misunderstandings. [less ▲]

When confronted to data from European social Survey, there seems to be no link between the acceptance of immigration by public opinion in a sample of western Europe countries and the presence of extreme right parties in those countries. This contradicts various political analysis and some other data. The paper states this possible discrepancy and tries to find explanations [less ▲]

Avant l'activation des stéréotypes, s'opère le repérage, la détection, l'identification et la qualification de comportements anormaux au sein de l'espace public. L'intérêt de ces questions est double : non seulement tout cela conditionne l'activation des représentations sociales du handicap, mais cela requiert en outre une participation active de celui qui observe le comportement et de celui qui le produit. Le handicap n'entraîne en effet pas automatiquement des comportements observables et descriptibles comme comportements "handicapés". C'est dans des circonstances particulières que ces comportements se révèlent, par contraste, par rapport au comportement typiquement attendu par la plupart des passants ordinaires. À partir d'entretiens approfondis auprès d'aidants non professionnels (essentiellement des proches de personnes handicapées), nous avons identifié comment les acteurs manifestent délibérément leur condition particulière. Nous mettons également en évidence que cette manifestation peut s'appuyer sur un équipement, plus que sur des actes. La canne blanche, par exemple, agit comme un badge ; elle signale aux autres que celui qui la porte est aveugle. À l'opposé, enfin, certains regrettent l'invisibilité d'un handicap comme la surdité, qui ne se voit pas et qui rend problématiques les interactions avec des acteurs qui ne comprennent pas l'inadéquation des réactions de leur interlocuteur.
