Représenter les étudiant-e-s extra-européen-ne-s dans le discours politique suisse (1900-2015) : garantie de compétitivité internationale ou concurrence à refréner ? = Representing non-European students in Swiss Political Discourse (1900-2015) : Guarantee of International Competitiveness or Competition to be Curbed ?

Gillabert, Matthieu ; Riaño, Yvonne

In: Géo-Regards. Revue neuchâteloise de géographie, 2017, vol. 10, p. 11-29

This article contributes to our understanding of how foreign students are represented in Swiss political discourses. It takes a historical perspective by examining how non-European students are represented in discourses mobilized at the federal level between 1900 and 2015. Students are portrayed as being either an asset or a threat. In the first case, such representations serve to legitimize...

Evolution observée du manteau neigeux des Alpes suisses dans le contexte des changements climatiques entre 1970 et 2016 = Observed Evolution of the Snowpack under Climate Change from 1970 to 2016 in the Swiss Alps

Klein, Geoffrey ; Rebetez, Martine (Dir.) ; Morin, Samuel (Codir.) ; Randin, Christophe (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Mountain regions are particularly exposed to climate change. The significant increase of air temperatures observed during the XXth century in the Alps had strong impacts on the spatial and temporal variability of snow cover, causing major changes on ecosystems, hydrological cycles or human economic activities. In this context of global warming, it is important to improve knowledge on snowpack...

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute Ecole Arc Santé, 2019.

La gestion de l’addiction à l’alcool chez les résident(e)s âgé(e)s de 75 ans et plus est l’un des problèmes complexes que doivent gérer les établissements de soins médico-sociaux (EMS). En effet, l’addiction à différentes substances reste un problème de santé actuel dans la population suisse. Plus spécifiquement, la consommation quotidienne d’alcool est une problématique...

À la rencontre de l’Autre : la posture de l’éducateur face au regard des personnes « lambdas » sur le handicap

Andjelkovic, Marija ; Délez, Marie-Luce (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute Ecole de Travail Social, 2019.

Les discours et les représentations sociales du handicap mental ont beaucoup évolué à travers l’histoire. Aujourd’hui, ces représentations évoluent encore. L’incapacité est vue comme une différence et cette différence se manifeste par le regard porté sur ces personnes. La perception du handicap a beaucoup évolué ces dernières années. Ceux que l’on qualifiait de «...

La costruzione dell'immaginario imperiale : Halford Mackinder e il Colonial Office Visual Instruction Committee

Bonollo, Leonardo ; Söderström, Ola (Dir.) ; Fall, Juliet (Codir.) ; Panese, Francesco (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

This thesis investigates the factors, the logics and the modalities that activate the imagination of an era and determine the specificity of its forms and functions. The period considered is the Age of Empire, in the belief that the historical and social events linked to imperialism were decisive in constructing the imagination, on a global scale, of an essentially closed world, as the...

Distinguishing ice-rich and ice-poor permafrost to map ground temperatures and ground ice occurrence in the Swiss Alps

Kenner, Robert ; Noetzli, Jeannette ; Hoelzle, Martin ; Raetzo, Hugo ; Phillips, Marcia

In: The Cryosphere, 2019, vol. 13, no. 7, p. 1925–1941

Mountain permafrost is invisible, and mapping it is still a challenge. Available permafrost distribution maps often overestimate the permafrost extent and include large permafrost-free areas in their permafrost zonation. In addition, the representation of the lower belt of permafrost consisting of ice-rich features such as rock glaciers or ice-rich talus slopes can be challenging. These...

Using Pragmatism to Approach ‘Diaspora’

Fischer, Carolin ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Routledge Handbook of Diaspora Studies, 2019, vol. 34, p. 293-301

This chapter focuses on social practices of 'doing diaspora' by different actors. It also argues an approach based on pragmatism in conjunction with a focus on boundary-work and meaning-making enables to identify and contextualize emic and etic meanings of being Afghan and belonging to a wider Afghan diaspora. Using pragmatism to approach ideas of diaspora would be to examine what individuals or...

How Transnational are Migrants in Switzerland? An Analysis of the Migration-Mobility-Transnationality Nexus

Crettaz ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Migrants and Expats: The Swiss Migration and Mobility Nexus, 2019, p. 267-291

Transnational studies have been in vogue for the past two decades. Nevertheless, there remain important knowledge gaps concerning migrants’ transnational formations. First, most of the literature relies on qualitative case studies. The few existing quantitative studies have shown that transnationality is far from being a “lifestyle” and that factors other than individual preferences are at...

Contesting categories: cross-border marriages from the perspectives of the state, spouses and researchers

Moret, Joëlle ; Andrikopoulos, Apostolos ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2019, p. 1-18

Marriages that involve the migration of at least one of the spouses challenge two intersecting facets of the politics of belonging: the making of the ‘good and legitimate citizens’ and the ‘acceptable family’. In Europe, cross-border marriages have been the target of increasing state controls, an issue of public concern and the object of scholarly research. The study of cross-border...
