“Poor people are never right”. In Benin, most citizens are rather skeptical towards their justice system. Common discourses and representations often depict notaries as forging wills; lawyers as likely to spin out a case to their own advantage. Judges are portrayed as corrupt and their clerks as too poorly paid to withstand the same "temptations". And yet Beninese state courts are constantly utilized. In 2005, 7,530 civil cases were introduced before the various first degree courts of Benin, 11,367 of them in 2010.This is why rather than concentrating on state bureaucrats and their practices, I chose to focus on the customers, their perception of public service and what use they ultimately make of it. As a striking example, inheritance disputes, although entrenched in family dynamics and witchcraft threats, are constantly brought up before the jurisdictions. I will therefore try and understand the processes of those families who decide to “refer to the state” in inheritance conflict cases. I will first focus on what happens “before the law” and on family negotiations. Why do these fail and what are the reasons justifying – or delaying – legal action? I will then overview people’s experiences of Beninese public services, wondering about the access and cost of justice. I will focus on the end result, and on the customers’ satisfaction towards this constantly criticized, yet also increasingly mobilized bureaucracy. Eventually, I will analyze people’s discourses regarding Justice and the State, all of which using both participant observation in Court and interviews with family members and judiciaries. In other words, I will focus on legal consciousness within Beninese families, on how the laws and the institutions supposed to be enforcing them are perceived, experienced and utilized. [less ▲]

Do informal initiatives share a capitalist spirit of entrepreneurship? This article attempts to answer this question, using a “popular economy” analytical framework and focusing on the case of Chile. First, we present the context of the research, namely the economic and political evolutions in Chile since the 1970s and their effects on the popular economy. Then, we seek to answer the original question, relying on in-depth case studies of so-called “popular economy organizations”. Our research shows that their socio-economic logics significantly differ from those of the traditional capitalist firm. Our observations also suggest important differences between current and older initiatives. [less ▲]

The objective of the present study was to determine the proportion of adults meeting national recommendations for food and nutrient intake and to identify the demographic, socio-economic and behavioural factors that may contribute to weaken dietary compliance. ORISCAV-LUX is a cross-sectional study that took place in Luxembourg (2007-8). A representative stratified random sample of 1352 adults aged 18-69 years participated in the nationwide cardiovascular health survey. A FFQ was used to estimate food intake. Radar charts were built to compare graphically the compliance of the participants with different key dietary guidelines on the same set of axes. The thirteen food- and nutrient-based recommendations were scored and summed to create a recommendation compliance index (range - 0.5 to 14). Ordinal logistic regression analyses were performed to determine the factors contributing to poor dietary compliance. Several food- and nutrient-based guidelines were insufficiently respected compared with others. The greatest gaps occurred in the adherence to grain and dairy product consumption guidelines, as well as to total fat and notably to SFA recommendations. Age, country of birth, economic status, smoking status and subject's awareness of the importance of balanced meals emerged as independently associated with weak dietary compliance. Obese subjects conformed more to dietary recommendations compared with normal-weight subjects. The findings underscore the need for specific nutrition education messages along with targeted interventions. Efforts should be continued to increase population awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. [less ▲]

In response to the global landscape anthropization caused by the extensive urbanization and the recruitment of forestlands for cropping, the primate-human commensalism is growing as well as the related interspecific conflict. In zones of interface, humans and primates are sympatric and compete for food and spatial resources. Today, we still poorly know the proportion of synanthrope primates and the impact of anthropic pressures. We present here data on 25 years-population dynamics and ranging behaviour of a long-term commensal-living population of long-tail macaques (Macaca fascicularis) in Ubud Monkey Forest, Bali (Indonesia). This population has experienced a dramatic growth over 25 years with an annual increase rate of 11%. In 2011, we counted 614 macaques split in 5 social groups and using an overall home range of 10ha with a 2.41ha core area centred on human provisioning places. We derived a very high population density of 61 macaques per hectare and concluded that this site is overpopulated. Moreover, the conflict between humans and macaques is increasing and requires specific management. As the natural food supply is low in Ubud Monkey Forest, we assume that the high carrying capacity of the site mainly depends on the artificial food supply. The abundance and the quality of artificial food may be the major factor determining such a high population density. The low predation pressure and the habitat compression by destruction of adjacent forests could also influence the positive demographic trend. As a tentative program of population control, we suggest both to lower the caloric content of the food provisioned to macaques and to conduct a sterilization programme. This strategy aims at reducing the conflict with humans and at promoting a sustainable coexistence by reducing birth rates and limiting the macaques’ population growth. [less ▲]
