« The non-take up » as a form of resistance: Segregation, Discrimination and the Youngsters in Brussels (Dr. Géraldine André)

Thursday, 8 November, 2018 - 12:30 to Thursday, 8 November, 2018 - 14:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
Pleinlaan 2, building C
Research Seminar

In a European metropolis like Brussels, youngsters participate less and less to society and existing democratic processes, and especially the ones with a low socio-economic and/or migratory background. In our presentation, we will try to analyse the processes which lead youngsters in the so-called “Croissant pauvre”, a disadvantaged area which concentrates several difficulties in Brussels, to turn away from their social rights. In particular, we will discuss the analytical potential of Warin’s approach (2016) for studying the non-take up of the youngsters as a form of resistance to the social State, and the limits of his perspective.
