Legitimacy, distantiation and the ecology of knowledge production in the Norwegian asylum procedure

Rosset, Damian

(Working Papers MAPS ; 2)

The strict separation between the production of country of origin information (COI) and the assessment of asylum applications is a fundamental norm in the professional practice of COI producers. By looking at the Norwegian COI unit, this article examines the way this separation is materialized through an infrastructure of distantiation built around COI production sites. This apparatus is...

How many Migrants does the Swiss Pension System Need?

Milivinti, Alice

(nccr on the move ; 19)

The positive role exerted by migrants to decelerate the ageing population process of devel oped countries has been stressed by many studies. However, the actual number of migrants needed to sustain the pension systems and its effectiveness in the long-run often remains tacit. While assuming the increment of the retired population to be the only shock, this study un dertakes an accounting exercise...

SWISSCIT Index on Citizenship Law in Swiss Cantons: Conceptualisation, Measurement, Aggregation

Arrighi, Jean-Thomas ; Piccoli, Lorenzo

(nccr on the move ; 18)

In the Swiss federal context, the acquisition of citizenship through ordinary naturalization, the enjoyment of electoral rights as a foreign resident, and the retention of the franchise as a Swiss citizen abroad is not uniformly defined through a single federal law but co-determined by the cantons. In this explanatory note, we introduce SWISSCIT, a set of indicators measuring how inclusive...

Art versus amusement: what do photos allow people to do?

Hua, Fan

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 68, p. 113-119

When discussing the aesthetic reaction, Vygotsky used a formula as an explanation: in a work of art, the form is always in conflict with the content, and the artist always overcomes content with form. Vygotsky unfolded the formula mostly in literature, however, he claimed that the formula can be applied to all other art forms. In this article, Vygotsky's formula is employed to photography....

Is the power of weak ties universal? A cross-cultural comparison of social interaction in Argentina and Canada

Tilston, Ottilie ; Sandstrom, Gillian

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 6811, p. 107-112

Although we interact with a wide range of people on a daily basis, the social psychological literature has primarily focused on interactions with close friends and family (i.e. strong ties). Recent research carried out on Canadian students suggests emotional benefits to interacting with acquaintances (i.e. weak social ties). The present study investigates whether this 'weak tie effect' holds in...

A design approach to team coordination

Avdiji, Hazbi ; Missonier, Stéphanie

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 68, p. 97-106

Team coordination over long time scales has been analyzed through two dominant perspectives: the contingency approach and the discursive approach. While they produced extensive theoretical contributions, these two perspectives are not well-suited to understand team coordination in changing and uncertain situations such as innovation projects. In this paper, we propose a design approach to...

Sharing emotions impacts computer-supported collaborative processes: effect of an emotion awareness tool

Avry, Sunny ; Molinary, Gaëlle

In: Revue Tranel, 2018, vol. 68, p. 85-96

There is a large consensus among researchers on the significant role of emotions in group effectiveness and performance. Emotion awareness tools (EATs) have been developed in recent years allowing members of a group to identify with their own- and their partner's emotions through a computer-mediated collaboration. In this study, we report the impact of an EAT on socio-cognitive and relational...
