This report is the result of research conducted by the universities of Liège and Antwerp over the course of a year. This research project, subdivided into five axes, aims to identify the conditions conducive to a realistic, effective and socially acceptable process to translate an action plan (the Waste Plan) into a specific implementation project that would ikely still be subject to arbitration and negotiation. Moreover, each axis of research aims to answer a particular question in order to address the issue from five different perspectives — theoretical, legal, media, societal and international:  Axis 1, “The decision-making process: from plan to project”, provides a theoretical discussion of the legitimacy of the decision-making process for B&C nuclear waste management.  Axis 2, “Evaluation of the Process of Societal Consultation about the Waste Plan”, sheds light on the expectations expressed in public consultation and on the successive stages of consultation that have already been implemented.  Axis 3, “Analysis of the Media Coverage of the 2010-2011 Waste Plan”, examines the visibility of the Waste Plan and the way it is treated in the media, as well as the actors and rhetoric occupying centre stage on the media scene.  Axis 4, “International Decision-Making Comparison”, explores decision trajectories developed in other countries (France, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland) in order to identify which lessons learned there can be transposed to the Belgian setting.  Axis 5, “Societal Support for the Solution for B&C Radioactive Waste and Spent Fuel Management in Law”, focuses on the legal and institutional framework of the decision-making process. This report is a synthesis of all the reports listed above. In this context, a dual perspective is adopted: prospective and retrospective. [less ▲]

Though few eighteenth-century houses in Liège have conserved their original wooden furniture or fittings, archival research reveals that these elements constituted a key aspect of the domestic interior. The present work draws largely on a series of public announcements known as Rendages proclamatoires which concerned property belonging to orphans sold by public auction, that exist. From 1697 to 1765, these sources provided descriptions of 257 houses situated within the city walls. The wooden furniture and fittings of eighteenth-century Liegerian houses can clearly be seen to be pertain to far more than the sole history of joinery: they also tell the story of Liege’s domestic living spaces in terms of social structure and cultural change. As such they eloquently illustrate the fact that it is only by taking into account the Old Regime’s conception of architecture as a total entity that we can today work towards establishing an increasingly just, coherent and complete understanding of ancient edifices.

My study focuses on the culinary practices of Moroccan women living in Milan hinterland in Italy. By adopting a praxeological approach (Warnier 2001), I study female subjectivation processes realized through food. My attention is given to (micro)practices (De Certeau 1980, Foucault in Martin 1993, Mahmood 2005, Mauss 1936) performed daily, by means of which the women considered shape their self and affirm their religious belonging in private and in public contexts. Islamic normativity concerning food issues is at matter here, thus being analyzed in its multifaceted complexity. As a matter of fact, the actors involved need to face the constraints imposed by the migration context while trying to comply with religious rules, in their turns intertwined with remembered embodied practices. This implies some negotiations to be made, in particular concerning a different articulation of time, but also the mobilization of tactics and strategies (De Certeau 1980) to guarantee a reassuring proper self-definition. In the private space, food practices keep on being influenced not only by the Islamic dietary prescriptions affirming what is not possible to eat, but also by the indications stressing what to eat – and eventually when and how to prepare it. A private consumption, reflecting a specific belief, materially informs a spiritual definition of the self. Furthermore, such dynamics go out the domestic context and perform in the public space. Everyday practices, and in particular those related to food, let an expression of Muslim migrants’ identity be realized in overdetermined backgrounds such as that which is under study. As a matter of fact, by preparing and sharing food, Moroccan women participate to local events - and consequently to the city social life - and thus they are allowed to affirm in public their religious belonging and some related claims. The so called “ethnic food” is protagonist of numerous intercultural events, aimed at letting an encounter with religious diversity take place in the perspective of a culture to taste. In those occasions, once a relationship is set up, other important issues can be approached, such as that of the freedom to practice religion. My presentation will try to highlight such complex dynamics, stressing on the materiality of religious subjectivation.

Les années 1990-2000 ont été marquées, en France, par l'émergence d'un courant de pensée et d'une nébuleuse d'acteurs intellectuels communément rassemblés sous l'étiquette des « Nouveaux Réactionnaires » (tels que Pascal Bruckner, Alain Finkielkraut, Alexandre Adler, Philippe Muray, Jean Clair, Éric Zemmour, Michel Houellebecq, etc.). Journalistes, romanciers, essayistes, chroniqueurs, philosophes, affichant une posture de refus à l'égard du politiquement correct, de la gauche morale et de la pensée unique, ils forment une sorte de personnage générique, composé de singularités en rupture avec toute assignation sociologique. Le projet de recherche entend dresser le tableau raisonné de ce collectif dispersé, sous les deux rapports d'une sociographie de groupe et d'une analyse rhétorique de leur discours ; il entend aussi mettre à l'épreuve différentes hypothèses explicatives sur l'émergence historique et politique du phénomène.

Context. The orbit of the giant planet discovered around β Pic is slightly inclined with respect to the outer parts of the debris disc, which creates a warp in the inner debris disc. This inclination might be explained by gravitational interactions with other planets. <BR /> Aims: We aim to search for additional giant planets located at smaller angular separations from the star. <BR /> Methods: We used the new L'-band AGPM coronagraph on VLT/NACO, which provides an exquisite inner working angle. A long observing sequence was obtained on β Pic in pupil-tracking mode. To derive sensitivity limits, the collected images were processed using a principal-component analysis technique specifically tailored to angular differential imaging. <BR /> Results: No additional planet is detected down to an angular separation of 0.''2with a sensitivity better than 5 M[SUB]Jup[/SUB]. Meaningful upper limits (<10 M[SUB]Jup[/SUB]) are derived down to an angular separation of 0.''1, which corresponds to 2 AU at the distance of β Pic. [less ▲]
