Ordre et temps dans la philosophie de Foucault (French Edition)

L'oeuvre de Foucault apparaît comme une succession d'études dispersées, plus que comme un tout cohérent. C'est l'une des raisons pour lesquelles on doute du caractère même d'oeuvre que constitueraient l'ensemble de ses travaux.

Sample text

Although migration in the search for better opportunities has long been part of human history, the contemporary era of globalization processes has led to qualitatively different migration patterns and pressures. According to the ILO (2004), the evidence points to an increase in migration pressures in many parts of the world. Processes integral to globalization have intensified the disruptive effects of modernization and capitalist development. Many developing countries face serious social and economic dislocation associated with persistent poverty, growing unemployment, loss of traditional trading patterns and what has been termed a ‘growing crisis of economic security’ (ILO Socio-Economic Security Programme 2004): In a number of countries, accelerated trade is replacing or undercutting domestic industrial and agricultural production with cheap imports, but at the expense of many jobs in those sectors.

Moreover, what rights mean, in both cases, is still subject to discussion. And, in both cases, relevant actors have different interpretations of the regimes. In both regimes, as in all regimes of governance, norms play an important overarching role. Norms frame, constitute and bring into being global ‘problems’ and shape policy responses. The normative/ideational dimension of governance regimes is fundamental to creating what Gamble (2000: 112) calls a new ‘constitution of governance’. To be fully effective, the normative underpinning of such constitutions must be regarded as binding and legitimate by actors involved or with interests in the issue area.

The legalist approach to rights, which emphasizes only legal entitlements, judicial processes and formal compliance, tends to ignore the dynamic role of societybased movements in rights-based struggles. The idea of rights as work in progress is an important insight and it draws attention to the importance of engagement with social organizations that instigate rights claims or use rights as the basis for social action. We do not mean to suggest by this that judicial process is unimportant. But the courts are only one of several sites of rights-based struggles.
