Résumé de la conférence : «Elle n’est pas donnée à tout le monde la chance de s’aimer pour la vie, 10 ans 10 mois 10 secondes et nous voici, à plonger dans les eaux troubles de mes souvenirs lointains, si quelquefois je vois double c’est que l’enfance me revient...» Julien Clerc. Contrairement à certaines idées reçues, les familles monoparentales et recomposées ont toujours existé, mais l’évolution historique qui les concerne fait qu’à l’heure actuelle, elles sont plus fréquemment issues d’un choix, subi ou agi, que d’un décès. De la sorte, les familles monoparentales et recomposées connaissent toute une série de défis que nous tenterons d’identifier, tant pour les parents que pour les enfants. Ces défis ne concernent cependant pas que les familles, la société au sens large doit également en relever, tout comme le domaine psy, qui doit penser de nouveaux modèles de prise en charge, pour des familles dites nouvelles. Qu’est-ce que c’est une famille monoparentale ou recomposée? Est-ce encore une famille d’ailleurs? Que se passe-t-il quand la famille devient les familles? Quel est le chemin à parcourir, et celui qu’on oublie? Quel regard la recherche porte sur elles, quels apports peut-elle leur offrir? Avec quelles dérives? Et cette double vie dont parle Julien Clerc, peut-elle se combiner à une seule et même existence, bienveillante et surtout, heureuse? [less ▲]

Burundi has nine million inhabitants in an area of 27,834 km2, making it one of the most densely populated countries in the world. More than 90% of the population lives in rural areas. In Kirundo province, people has increased from 404,564 in 1990 to 628,256 inhabitants in 2008 with the annual population growth rate of 3.17%. This region had several cycles of drought leading several people to flee the famine and go to the neighboring countries. However, this region was the breadbasket of Burundi country because it fed many regions in cereals and legumes. The objective of our study is to analyze the family farming and environment: issues, constraints and opportunities. Our study was conducted in Kirundo province Northern Burundi, where 355 farmers were interviewed in municipalities of Bugabira, Busoni, Bwambarangwe, Gitobe, Kirundo Ntega and Vumbi respectively 50, 75, 30, 40, 55, 55 and 50 farmers. The number of farm households surveyed was based on the number of farmers in each municipality. The results of the analysis show that the deforestation, erosion soil caused by overexploitation of land up to 200% without technical renewal of fertility, the increasing of demographic rate, lack of soil protection, small farmland, etc. are some main causes of climate change and low agricultural productivity. Contrariwise, to apply soil protection and agricultural techniques can increase water in the lakes for irrigation and the combination of the swamps development can spur family farming in that region which posses over five lakes.

Family relationships are central to the way Caribbean writers define their identities. This is particularly the case of Caryl Phillips. Most of his fiction presents the family as a site of disruption, but also includes examples of surrogate parenthood, which reflect the complexity of the writer's identity conundrum. The discussion focuses on Phillips's 2003 novel A Distant Shore. [less ▲]

This dissertation is situated at the crossroads of migration, family and transnational studies. It explores families that span multiple cities and countries due to the migration of one or more relatives and analyzes their subsequent construction and reconstruction of familyhood across national borders. Through a multi-sited qualitative study into Moroccan family networks with residential nodes in Liège, Belgium and Oujda, Morocco, but also several other destinations, Caroline Zickgraf considers both the material and non-material functions of transnational family practices that together produce and inflate transnational social spaces. She treats both the social and physical geographies of these networks in order to understand how the circulation of people affects the circulation of care but also treats the tensions and asymmetries that characterize their multi-directional cross-border exchanges.

BACKGROUND: The objectives were to answer the following questions using a well-characterized population in Liege, Belgium: 1) what percentage of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients have a positive family history for AAA, 2) what is the prevalence of AAAs among relatives of AAA patients; and 3) do familial and sporadic AAA cases differ in clinical characteristics. METHODS AND RESULTS: Unrelated AAA patients diagnosed at the Cardiovascular Surgery Department, University Hospital of Liege, Belgium, between 1999 and 2012 were invited to the study. A detailed family history was obtained in interviews and recorded using Progeny software. In the initial interview 62 (10%) of the 618 AAA patients reported a positive family history for AAA. We divided the 618 patients into two study groups: Group I: 296 AAA patients (268; 91% males) were followed up with computerized tomography combined with positron emission tomography, and Group II: 322 AAA patients (295; 92% males) whose families were invited to ultrasonography screening. Ultrasonography screening identified 24 new AAAs among 186 relatives (>/= 50 years) of 144 families yielding a prevalence of 13%. The highest prevalence (25%) was found among brothers. By combining the number of AAAs found by ultrasonography screening with those diagnosed previously the observed lifetime prevalence of AAA was estimated to be 32% in brothers. The familial AAA cases were more likely to have a ruptured AAA than the sporadic cases (8% vs. 2.4%; P<0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: The findings confirm previously found high prevalence of AAA among brothers, support genetic contribution to AAA pathogenesis and provide rationale for targeted screening of relatives of AAA patients.

We propose a family of nonlinear state feedback global stabilizers for all planar linear systems which are globally stabilizable by bounded inputs (namely, all non exponentially unstable linear systems). This family is parametrized by a nonlinear function whose selection can yield quasi time-optimal responses, where the "quasi" is required to achieve local exponential stability of the closed loop. The arising trajectories are quasi-time-optimal for arbitrarily large initial conditions; so, we expect the very simple proposed nonlinear control law to be very useful for embedded control applications with strong computational constraints.

This paper deals with the approximation concepts approach applied to structural optimization. In 1987, Svanberg proposed the method of moving asymptotes for solving structural optimization problems. This approximation is monotonous and can efficiently treat problems characterized by such a behavior. Svanberg (1995) proposed a modification of the MMA approximation by making it non monotonous. This property is based on an heuristically updated parameter. The resulting approximation is called GCMMA. In Bruyneel et al. (1999), it is shown that it is possible to generate non monotonous GCMMA based approximations, called GBMMA, by using the gradient and/or the function values from previous iteration. It was shown that such approximations improve the convergence speed of the optimization process. In many optimization problems (for example composite structures optimization or simultaneous sizing and optimal configuration of truss structures), the structural responses present both monotonous and non monotonous behaviors. A mixed monotonous/non monotonous approximation scheme has to be used for approximating in the best way the optimization problem (Zhang et al., 1998 and Bruyneel and Fleury, 2000). In this paper, we propose to show that it is possible to derive a very general approximation of the MMA family based on gradients and/or functions values at two successive design step, that present a mixed monotonous/non monotonous behavior. This approximation scheme is based on the GMMA approximation of Dusyinx et al. (1995) and on the non monotonous GBMMA approximations of Bruyneel and Fleury (1999). As the approximation scheme proposed in this paper is general, it contains all the approximations of the MMA family described above, that is MMA, GCMMA, GBMMA and GMMA. According to the characteristics of the problem under consideration, one of those approximations or of a mix of them is used to solve the optimization problem. This selection can be automatic or based on the designer’s knowledge. Numerical applications will show that the derived GMMA/GBMMA approximation scheme is efficient for solving structural optimization problems. Results will be compared with the ones obtained with the other approximations of the MMA family. [less ▲]

This paper proposes a new first-order approximation scheme used for solving structural optimization problems. It is based on approximations of the MMA family (MMA and GCMMA), but it utilizes the gradients and/or the function values at two successive design points to improve the quality of the approximation. In addition, this scheme can consider simultaneously monotonous and nonmonotonous structural behaviour. According to the characteristics of the treated problem, one of the approximations or a mix of them is automatically selected. Based on this approach, the accuracy of the approximated subproblems is improved and the solution process can be sped up. Numerical results compare the effectiveness of the method with previously derived approximations of the MMA family for shape optimization of trusses and for composite design problems. The benefit of using mixed approximations is also discussed. [less ▲]

This paper studies the role of family size in the design of optimal income taxation. We consider a second best setting where the government observes the number of children and the income of the parents but not their productivity. With a linear tax schedule the marginal tax rate is shown to decrease with the number of children, while the relationship between the demogrant and family size appears to be ambiguous. With two ability levels, optimal non-linear income tax implies zero marginal tax rates for the higher ability parents; low ability parents have positive marginal tax rates that decrease with family size.

Although brain injury may have a great impact on the family as a whole, family reactions are not adequately addressed in rehabilitative programmes. When they are, treatment tends to be approached from a family education and support perspective and not from a family therapy perspective. The aim of the following paper is to illustrate the important role that a family systems approach can play in treating families of individuals with brain injury. In particular, clinical examples taken from the literature will be presented that illustrate how family roles can be modified as a consequence of a brain injury, and the importance of re-establishing or re-distributing these roles. It will be argued that an intimate collaboration between family therapist and brain injury professional is essential, and that the ideal professional make-up of clinicians working with families of persons with brain injury are those well-versed in both brain injury rehabilitation and family therapy.
