Fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene is widely expressed in central and peripheral tissues of mammals, and exhibits a range of functions, especially in energy balance. However, basic knowledge of FTO in the chicken is lacking. Therefore, we studied the tissue distribution, age and breed dependent changes, brain localization, as well as the impact of fasting on FTO mRNA expression in the chicken. FTO mRNA was expressed in all the tissues studied, and generally, with high expression in hypothalamus, liver, visceral fat and cerebellum. However it exhibited breed-specific patterns: in broilers, the highest expression was seen in the liver, while in layers, hypothalamus and cerebellum showed relatively higher FTO mRNA expression. One-week-old broilers expressed markedly higher FTO mRNA in liver compared with the layers of the same age (P<0.01), while the breed difference was reversed in visceral fat and cerebellum (P<0.05). Compared with newly hatched chicks (one week of age), adult layers expressed higher FTO mRNA in liver and visceral fat, while adult broilers showed higher expression in hypothalamus and cerebellum. In situ hybridization demonstrated distribution of FTO mRNA in paraventricularis magnocellularis (PVN), nucleus ventromedialis hypothalami (VMN), nucleus lateralis hypothalami (LHy), nucleus dorsomedialis hypothalami (DMN) of the hypothalamus and nucleus habenularis medialis (HM) and stratum cellulare externum (SCE) of the thalamus. Breed-specific expression of FTO mRNA was shown in PVN, but not in VMN, with higher abundance in broilers compared to layers. The decrease in FTO mRNA levels after 24h of fasting was seen only in VMN of layer chickens. These results may provide some intriguing hints for further investigation of FTO function in the chicken.

La généralisation, dans le domaine politique, du recours à des processus de quantification présentés comme une activité technique contrôlée par des experts transforme les processus de construction de l'action publique . Suivant la démarche constructiviste proposée par Desrosières (2008 ; 2010), je postule que le modèle de mesure repose sur une construction préalable de catégories, qui sont autant de fruits de compromis : le choix de la convention n’est pas neutre et l'objet de la présentation est de défendre l'importance d'un axe de recherche qui s'attache à dénaturaliser la production des chiffres pour mettre en évidence la normativité inhérente aux modèles de conventions qui les fondent et pour créer les conditions de leur mise en débat. Ce phénomène touche tous les secteurs de l’action publique, y compris nos universités et nos hopitaux, les services de police et nos dispositfs de sécurité, … . Il s’agit de reconnaitre la politique de quantification comme une activité politique à part entière et de l’analyser comme telle [less ▲]

The growing body of literature on child labour in Burkina Faso (a West African country) has mostly addressed, since the 1990s, the causes, the nature of work and the dangers encountered by working children. Whereas much has been written about these aspects, less attention has been paid to the examination of the degree to which international child labour standards have been enforced in this resource-poor country. Accordingly, this paper presents the real functioning of a public service, namely the Labour Inspectorate whose role is to enforce child labour legislation and to protect working children. Based on qualitative analysis of labour inspectors’ opinions through semi-structured interviews and on the viewpoints of other community workers, it addresses the challenges of implementing child labour legislation in Burkina Faso. The paper shows that the labour inspectors, in their everyday activity, have to permanently deal with the ‘risk margin’. On the one hand, they have to enforce the child labour laws and on the other hand they need to recognise the harsh living conditions of children at work and their parents. Their practices reveal a paradoxical situation: the labour inspectors control child labour, but in the formal sector where there are very few children at work. On the contrary, they less control child labour in the informal sectors (e.g. quarries, mines, farms) where thousands of children are performing “dangerous activities”. The paper explains the reasons of this paradox and addresses the global challenges facing policies and practices in the fight against child labour in Burkina Faso. It shows that labour inspectors are dealing with an almost impossible mission and that child labour eradication cannot be effective without the means of its enforcement. [less ▲]

In the last three decades, the development of the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector has been increasing in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), bringing more and more urban families into this flourishing business sector, and among them, children. At first glance, one could see children in the mining sector mainly as victims entangled in the flows of raw materials of unbridled capitalism. But this paper aims to look at the often unconceivable, and as a result neglected, social agency of children even when they are involved in stigmatized and prohibited types of child labour. To do so, it relies on the results of a socio-anthropological collective research project on children’s mining activities which was carried out in a small locality called La Ruashi in the city of Lubumbashi (Province of Katanga). The article aims to provide a more comprehensive understanding of what is often normatively only labelled as ‘child labour’ by looking at different spheres of social relations within which children are embedded. Examining the set of social interactions that children have with their families, the broader community and their ‘peers’, several ‘family portraits’ are offered, highlighting a heterogeneity of social interpretations regarding this ‘new’ form of child work. It will be shown that for families from middle-class background, this kind of work is often socially disruptive, at the forefront of inter-generational conflict. As for families from lower classes, social changes induced by children’s mining activities are often better incorporated into the family habitus. Common social changes encountered in all families irrespective of class belonging will also be portrayed, showing the transversal societal impact these ‘new’ forms of child economic activities can provoke at a micro level.

Everyone should have the possibility to benefit from an ECEC service where his / her needs are recognized and given individual attention. For the last years, several laws have been issued to facilitate inclusion of children with special needs in the French Community of Belgium, but laws are not sufficient. The point is to think about constructive conditions necessary to welcome daily every child and family. A group of professionals has gathered to share experiences and define options to share competencies, knowledge and experiences in order to give opportunities to everybody to feel welcome in the service, in regards to his / her competencies, interests, possibilities. A main hypothesis that has been examined: an individual care to a child with special needs can transform positively the whole ECEC service and improve quality conditions for everybody. Indeed quality depends both on pedagogical choices made (what is daily proposed to children and their family ?) and on the beneficiaries of the service (who are the children and the family welcomed ?). In the part of the symposium focused on the French Community of Belgium, the results of worshops (increasing partnership with families, giving a place to each child, building a network …) have been discussed.
