The Fair Trade and co-operative movements have much in common. This chapter aims to examine the convergences and divergences between the two fields, highlighting what they can learn from each other and how practitioners and researchers in the two areas can better collaborate. Fair trade is an innovative approach to economic development that uses a market-driven approach to exploit the growing trend in ethical, or caused-based, consumption (Nicholls & Opal 2005). Fair Trade organizations aim to re-engineer the value chains between poor producers and artisans - typically in developing countries - and their wholesale buyers such that a greater proportion of the overall rents accrue to those who provide the inputs. Put simply, Fair Trade aims to ensure that the poorest actors in a supply chain benefit from more of the overall financial value creation as a development tool. Moreover, Fair Trade reconnects producers and consumers at the point of purchase such that consumption becomes a political – or, at least, life style – choice. This chapter is structured as follows. After this introduction, the second section describes the development of Fair Trade from its historical roots to the current organizational landscape and market organization. Next there is a discussion of several key issues and challenges that have emerged as Fair Trade has become increasingly institutionalized. Then, the fourth section explores the relationship between Fair Trade and the co-operative and mutual movements. Finally, conclusions serve to sum up the chapter. [less ▲]

In this paper we study the Christian symbols, as the cross (), the staurogramm (⳨, and its variant with an appendage ), the chi-rho sign (⳩), and the crux ansata (☥) in Greek literary and documentary papyri. The first part is dedicated to the study of the form and the origin of the Christian symbols, on the ground of both the oldest papyri which bear them and the literary sources about them. In the second part we analyze their disposition in the papyri and in relation to the texts they bear. Finally, in the third part, the data studied before lead to identifying the functions of the Christian symbols in the papyri. [less ▲]

This review describes the current methods for exploiting and applying plant growth-promoting rhizbacteria (PGPR), elicitors and semiochemical products in contemporary agricultural systems. The future of these biostimulant and biocontrol tools for the sustainable management of agricultural practices is also discussed. Special attention is given to the formulation of these products and the network of interactions taking place in cultivated ecosystems [less ▲]

Au fil des siècles, le corpus latin des vitae sanctorum et des passiones martyrum s’est enrichi par l’introduction de nouveaux textes, par la réécriture et l’adaptation d’anciens remis au goût du jour, ainsi que par la traduction d’oeuvres issues du monde byzantin. Le phénomène de la réécriture hagiographique est bien connu et a fait l’objet de nombreux travaux. Celui de la traduction dans ce domaine reste en revanche peu exploité, tant il existe d’obstacles à son étude (absence de répertoire, manque d’éditions critiques, difficultés à identifier les traductions et les modèles grecs, etc.). Le présent travail propose une approche originale du phénomène, basée sur l’utilisation de la statistique linguistique. Cette approche consiste à étudier le latin utilisé par les traducteurs hagiographes pour rendre leur modèle grec et les techniques qu’ils ont adoptées pour le traduire en considérant les traductions non pas une à une, mais d’une manière comparative au moyen de l’analyse quantitative, dans le but de caractériser et de classer les traductions sur base de critères linguistiques, d’identifier et de qualifier des pratiques, des traditions localisées, des spécificités d’école ou de traducteur. La pratique de la traduction est examinée à travers un corpus de 35 textes représentatif des différentes phases de l’histoire de la traduction hagiographique latine au Moyen Âge et des différents foyers de traduction en Italie. Les analyses sont menées sur divers paramètres lexicaux et syntaxiques, en comparant d’abord le corpus, pris dans son ensemble, à un corpus de textes non traduits, puis en comparant entre eux les différents sous-corpus de traductions. Le premier type de comparaison (externe) a pour objectif de mettre en évidence les caractéristiques des traductions en général, le second (interne) de dégager les spécificités de chaque groupe de traductions.

A French writer born on North African soil and a pied-noir who opposed both the O.A.S. and the F.L.N., Albert Camus has always enjoyed a problematic status in post-imperial France, a country where the taboos surrounding the Algerian War have been kept alive by left- and right-wingers alike. While on the one hand right-wing French politicians have recurrently appealed to Pied-Noir ‘nostalgéria’ to justify their stubborn stance of non-repentance as regards the 130 years of colonization in Algeria, on the other, influential left-wing figures, such as Pierre Nora, have participated in a climate of intellectual atrophy by joining what British historian Perry Anderson has recently called “union sucrée,” that is, sugar-coated, and self-indulgent, versions of France and its colonial past. The difficult, even impossible, memorialization of Camus and his work in today’s France was evidenced again on the eve of the writer’s centenary. In 2012, the project of a major Camus exhibition in Aix-en-Provence for Marseille-Provence European Capital of Culture 2013 was stalled, following on the brutal eviction of its curator, French Algeria historian Benjamin Stora, by arch-conservative Aix-en-Provence mayor Maryse Joissains-Masini. Certainly, the subsequent absence of official celebrations in France surrounding Camus’ 100th birthday implied that the specificity of Camus’ liberal pied-noir voice would still remain silenced there for quite some time. But it also gave new momentum to U.S. historian Todd Shepard’s suggestion that the all-too-easy conflation of ‘pied-noir’ and ‘right-wing extremist’ (which has been dominant in France since the start of the Fifth Republic, at times correctly so) has helped naturalize the construction of some post-imperial ‘all-good-again’ Frenchness, in particular maintain the comforting belief that the “‘Algerian experience’ had been an unfortunate colonial detour, from which the French Republic had now escaped” (The Invention of Decolonization, 11). Can it be that Camus’s heritage is a “burning” one (cf. Stora’s Camus brûlant (2013)) because the irreconcilability of his work and commitments with the utilitarian image of the pied noir extrémiste would reveal the extent to which today’s France is dependent on this same image to keep the memory of its own involvement in colonialism at bay? This question constitutes the starting point of my discussion of Sandra Smith’s new translation of L’Etranger (2013), which appeared in the same year as two other books also inviting us to reconsider the actuality of Camus’ Algerian legacy from a non-French perspective – namely Kamel Daoud’s Meursault, contre-enquête, a retelling of Camus’ classic which was published in Algeria, and Arthur Goldhammer’s translation, for the first time in English, of Camus’s Algerian Chronicles, which offers the writer’s final word on the Algerian question. Taking my cue from Mona Baker, who argues that “translators […] play a crucial role in both disseminating and contesting public narratives with and across national boundaries” (Translation and Conflict, 4-5), I intend to contextualize Smith’s new translation of Camus’s classic within a broader frame of contemporary attempts at problematizing the strategic pigeonholing of Camus as colonialist, decades after Edward Said’s pronouncement that The Stranger was informed by an “incapacitated colonial sensibility” (Culture and Imperialism, 176). Lawrence Venutti has argued that “the intertextual and interdiscursive relations that a translation establishes are not merely interpretative, but also potentially interrogative” (Translation Changes Everything 182). My hypothesis is that Smith’s translation strategy, which includes the re-humanization of Meursault, creates a web of new meanings that participate in opening a space through which Camus’ anti-hero can be seen both as an outsider and an insider to French Algeria – a space that might reach backward and forward, with a potential for complicating the pieties of post-imperial France.

This study focusses on the hydrology of a Belgian forested plot with high stoniness and steep slope. The soil water content is monitored at several positions on the toposequence and at different depth. During rain events, peak in soil water content are observed in different depth depending on the position along the toposequence. [less ▲]
