Durée du projet : 01.04.2014 - 31.03.2018

Ce projet de recherche tente d’appréhender la situation particulière des seniors en fin de carrière pour comprendre les difficultés particulières que ce groupe de personnes connaît depuis quelques années et anticiper les problèmes qu’il connaîtra une fois à la retraite. La démarche se fait à partir de données quantitatives recueillies dans les grandes enquêtes nationales et par une démarche qualitative.

The Pluralistic Memories Project aims to document the diversity of memories about past conflicts, to examine the processes through which war narratives become official or fall into oblivion, and to support local researchers who study collective memories in conflict-torn societies. The project brings together Burundian, Sri Lankan, Palestinian, Swiss and other international researchers from different scientific disciplines who are guided by a common question: Can the preservation of a plurality of living memories make communities more resilient in face of the exploitation of yesterday’s trauma by tomorrow’s warmongers?

Our research group seeks (a) to further develop knowledge on violence against women in Switzerland, (b) to extend gender violence research to integrate acts perpetrated against men, and (c) to develop contextual indicators that allow examination of the gender asymmetry in male- and female-perpetrated violence. We are also interested in the institutional responses to (gender) violence against women that occur in couple or family relationships, in the workplace, and in public space.

We are currently collaborating with the French research group VIRAGE. VIRAGE is a national prevalence study that aims to examine victimization experiences occurring in various spaces (family and relationships, public space, and workplace) from a gender perspective in order to develop a typology of violence experienced by women and men.

Academic Elites in Switzerland 1910 – 2000: between Autonomy and Power

Research Team : Felix Bühlmann (LINES), André Mach (IEPHI),Thomas David (IHES)
Funding source : Swiss National Science Foundation
Duration of project : 01.02.2013 - 31.01.2016

This research project aims to understand the evolution of the Swiss academic elites in the 20th century. The following research questions will be addressed:  a) which are the resources owned by the academic elite, the processes of acquisition of these resources and their distribution within the academic field? b) What are the relations of academic elites to other fields (political, economic, and administrative) and how have these relations evolved during the 20th century? To address these points of inquiry we will draw on a historical sample of Swiss university professors. We will collect data on relevant resources of all full professors: scientific reputation, institutional positions, social networks, international experiences and educational credentials. These data will then be analysed by an innovative combination of methods including network analysis, sequence analysis and multiple correspondence analysis. For the first time in Switzerland, this project will allow us to overcome the particularistic studies of single universities or scientific disciplines, it will enable us to understand the evolution of the academic elite in the “long durée” and to link the academic elite to leading actors in the political, administrative and economic sphere.
