2. State & Society/État et société

 



Here we examine the legal, social and political structures, and processes that hold state and society together. The authors trace the rise and political positioning of social voices that have represented a challenge to established views of women, indigenous people and marginalized groups. As the push for a single transparency narrative grows, there is no consensus on the state’s ability to end “corruption” and how this plays out in different parts of the world. Analyses explore how income growth, socio-economic equality and healthy inclusion interact to determine levels of satisfaction and happiness in a society.



Nous examinons ici les structures juridiques, sociales et politiques ainsi que les processus qui assurent la cohésion de l’État et de la société. Les auteurs retracent la montée et le positionnement politique des voix sociales qui ont contesté les idées reçues sur les femmes, les peuples autochtones et les groupes marginalisés. Au moment où se raffermit la volonté d’instaurer un discours unique sur la transparence, il n’existe aucun consensus sur l’aptitude de l’État à mettre un terme à la « corruption » et sur la façon dont la situation évolue dans diverses régions du monde. Les analyses examinent la manière dont la croissance des revenus, l’égalité socio-économique et une saine inclusion interagissent pour déterminer les degrés de bonheur et de satisfaction au sein d’une société.
