  • Suite aux attentats de 2015/2016, le gouvernement français conçoit dans l'urgence une réponse inédite pour détourner les jeunes du djihad. Un projet emblématique est alors au coeur de toutes les attentions : le centre de prévention et d'insertion à la citoyenneté (CPIC), vite et mal nommé « centre de déradicalisation ».

    Mais comment « déradicaliser » ? A quels professionnels confier ces jeunes ? Comment les accompagner ?

    L'ouvrage revient sur cette histoire méconnue, sur la base d'une enquête de terrain auprès des équipes du centre. Dans un style narratif axé sur les récits d'expérience, il plonge le lecteur en immersion dans le quotidien des professionnels, et tout particulièrement dans les aspects les plus ambigus et complexes de leur mission.

    Les auteurs proposent une lecture sociologique des désaccords et des conflits qui ont rendu impossibles la conception et la réalisation de ce travail de « déradicalisation ». Car derrière les murs et les grilles, se sont posés les termes d'un débat qui n'est pas clos, et qui constitue peut-être l'une des questions les plus centrales, les plus piégées et les plus mal posées de notre époque : qu'est-ce que la radicalité politico-religieuse et que peut-on faire pour la contrecarrer ?

  • After the start of the Syrian Civil War in 2011-12, increasing numbers of civilians sought refuge in neighboring countries. By May 2017, Turkey had received over 3 million refugees - the largest refugee population in the world. Some lived in government-run camps near the Syrian border, but many have moved to cities looking for work and better living conditions. They faced problems of integration, income, welfare, employment, health, education, language, social tension, and discrimination. In order to develop sound policies to solve these interlinked problems, a good understanding of refugee dynamics isnecessary.This book summarizes the most important findings of the Data for Refugees (D4R) Challenge, which was a non-profit project initiated to improve the conditions of the Syrian refugees in Turkey by providing a database for the scientific community to enable research on urgent problems concerning refugees. The database, based on anonymized mobile call detail records (CDRs) of phone calls and SMS messages of one million Turk Telekom customers, indicates the broad activity and mobility patterns of refugees and citizens in Turkey for the year 1 January to 31 December 2017. Over 100 teams from around the globe applied to take part in the challenge, and 61 teams were granted access to the data.This book describes the challenge, and presents selected and revised project reports on the five major themes: unemployment, health, education, social integration, and safety, respectively. These are complemented by additional invited chapters describing related projects from international governmental organizations, technological infrastructure, as well as ethical aspects. The last chapter includes policy recommendations, based on the lessons learned.The book will serve as a guideline for creating innovative data-centered collaborations between industry, academia, government, and non-profit humanitarian agencies to deal with complex problems in refugee scenarios. It illustrates the possibilities of big data analytics in coping with refugee crises and humanitarian responses, by showcasing innovative approaches drawing on multiple data sources, information visualization, pattern analysis, and statistical analysis.It will also provide researchers and students working with mobility data with an excellent coverage across data science, economics, sociology, urban computing, education, migration studies, and more.
