Although certain recent theoretical developments insist more on the plurality of social and individual realities, the answers to empirical questions such as Are the young involved? or Are they interested in politics? still too often fit in a univocal logic of comprehension where concepts used are thought to be homogeneous, as if they were “subsumptions”. This is why it is coherent to explain phenomena from a linear point of view which supposes a precise vision of the processes of construction of individual worlds of reference. Jean Piaget’s perspective of socialization reminds us that the individual is not a passive being in the dynamics of appropriation of the world, but that he assimilates the social context, accommodates it to what he already understands and, thus, transforms it. Consequently, this opens the way to a form of conceptual relativism, with a plural logic of comprehension where each reality, each concept cannot be defined without being replaced in the context of the singular worlds of reference. Thus, the theoretical consideration of the plural possibilities must also emerge from our interpretations. This research challenge is raised in this thesis by studying a series of profiles of dimensions, where each dimension can be replaced in a context which materializes a certain organization of realities. The complexity thus introduced into the analysis is synthesized by multivariate statistical methods (analysis of multiple correspondences and hierarchical ascending classification) which respect the initial organization of profiles. On the basis of data from an original inquiry among French, Belgian and Québécois high-school students, series of “clusters” of similar individuals are presented to describe, in a plural way, their participation and their political interests at the beginning of the nineties.

Since 1990, several colleagues and I have had the opportunity to distribute surveys in Quebec, France and Belgium on youth participation and political interests. This data constitutes a rare source of information for analysing the political attitudes of 16-18 years old. Last winter, we have distributed the same survey to the student population in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador (429 high school students). In particular, participation in more than 12 movements and associations was compared with similar data collected in Quebec City in 1998. Interestingly, the same proportion of students participate in one association or another (more than two-thirds) However, it is important to go beyond the usual snapshots provided by sociological indicators to understand such behaviour. Stressing internal differences within groups is essential and cluster analysis (particularly hierarchical cluster analysis) is a perfect tool for this. With a more precise image of the various forms of participation, and with the different attitudes about involvement attached to them, several distinct discourses might be differently qualified youth participation. Moreover, the understanding of political socialization processes could also be questioned. This task, indeed, is crucial to assess and critique existing opinions about youth participation in politics. [less ▲]

En 1990 et en 1998, nous avons eu l’occasion de distribuer un questionnaire à plus de 800 élèves de sept écoles secondaires de la région de Québec dans le but, entre autres, de déterminer leurs niveaux d’intérêt pour la politique et de participation aux associations. La comparaison de données, à une dizaine d’années d’intervalle, s’avère instructive. Plus précisément, nos résultats sont analysés à l’aide d’une méthode multidimensionnelle, la classification ascendante hiérarchique, qui nous permet de regrouper les répondants en fonction des similitudes d’un profil de réponses. Ainsi, bien que nos enquêtes, en 1990 comme en 1998, révèlent qu’environ les deux tiers des élèves participent aux activités d’une ou de plusieurs associations de nature très diverse, le fait de considérer simultanément plusieurs dimensions de la participation nuance ce portrait pour le politologue. Il en résulte que plusieurs types d’attitudes et de comportements apparaissent au sein de notre population. Il convient de les garder à l’esprit autant ces types variés que cette projection globale qui nous amène à noter qu’environ le quart de nos répondants peuvent être identifiés comme des élèves participants à des mouvements de nature politique ou de « revendication » et fortement disposés à s’engager.

The objective of this presentation is to discuss the participation of students at the University of Liège to the educational spacecraft project SSETI-ESEO proposed by the European Space Agency. SSETI students are now mainly involved in the ESEO satellite for which the University of Liège is in charge of the MECH work package. The students have to propose a design for the structure of the solar panels (including the geometry and materials) and their deployment and pointing mechanisms (including electrical circuits, motors, hinges and actuators). Through detailed finite element computations in the SAMCEF software, they have to verify the structural integrity of the panels during the launch phase and to guarantee a safe deployment once on-orbit. Another task is to ensure an appropriate orientation of the solar panels to collect the maximum power from the sun. An industrial partner specialized in the development of computer-aided engineering solutions, SAMTECH, and a research center, Liège Space Center (CSL), also bring their expertise to the project.

The participation of stakeholders has commonly become a criterion for the assessment of public policies. In the field of integration of unskilled workers, who are more and more integrated to compulsory "reskilling" devices, is participation a benefit or a way to produce consent ? At the light of the work of Tyler and McGraw, this paper examines data that were collected in a process of sociological intervention among those unskilled worker in different regions of Wallonia [less ▲]

How does the ethno-linguistic conflict between Flemish and Walloons materialize itself among Belgian expatriate communities? Using the concepts of transnationalism and long-distance nationalism, this article studies the transfer of political cleavages among emigrant communities. To do so, I examine the conditions that led to the creation of Belgian emigrant associations abroad, I analyse parliamentary debates on the right to vote of expatriates in home country elections and I compare the electoral behaviour of expatriate and resident voters. This analysis leads me to two major conclusions. First, emigrants are resources that serve home country political parties to strengthen their position at home. Second, the political behaviour of Belgian emigrants evolves similarly to that of resident voters. [less ▲]
