  • Politica e società: le nuove sfide della sociologia politica

    • Authors: Lorenzo Viviani

  • Il tempo ambiguo della democrazia corta

    • Authors: Roberto Segatori
      Abstract: In the secular confrontation between economics and politics, the current season is characterized by a return of the supremacy of the former over the latter, due to the speculative game of finance capital. The private-dominant logic of profit reproduction, interconnected with a revolution of the modes of production, is giving rise to widespread social fractures and, subsequently, to a real “democratic stress”. Today’s forms of “short democracy” (populism and “action committees”, on the one hand, practices of participatory democracy on the other) can therefore be read as a reaction – indeed weakly articulated in a systemic way – to the neo-economic imperialism logic and a certain impotence of the traditional forms of politics. But are they a solution'

  • Nazionalismo etnico-culturale e nazionalismo religioso

    • Authors: Arianna Montanari
      Abstract: The process of globalization has followed logics that have not take account of borders and national economic interests. The states appear in difficulty while under and above them are being defined relations and economic flows that transcend them, when they do not ignore them. In addition the massive migration due to wars, famines and hunger are transforming the nations in multi-ethnic and multi-cultural states. The advance of identity fragmentation and the loss of national power facilitates the hiring of an identity based on religion and gives people the advantage of becoming part of an organized community featuring common values. This explains the great attraction that fundamentalism, not only Muslim, but Hindu or Jewish or Christian, exercising on an ever-increasing mass of people. In front of the disorientation linked to the nation’s crisis, religion appears to be the most solid institution, the only one able to offer models of behavior and available alternative. Such as nationalism had been an answer in terms of social cohesion respect to class conflict, the religious nationalism may appear as a cohesive force in front of loss of traditional national identity, reassembling and redrawing boundaries and territories.

  • Il postsecular turn: politica, religione e società oltre la

    • Authors: Ilaria Biano
      Abstract: The debate over the concept of ‘postsecular’ has grown in the last decades gathering both supporters and critics. Originated from the formulation made by Jürgen Habermas, the ‘postsecular turn’ became one of the most successful concepts in the long history of the theory of secularization. Many contemporary analysis of the role of religion in society and politics can be read in the postsecular frame. The aim of this paper is to sum up different aspects and formulations of ‘postsecular’ and show the potential of this approach for understanding contemporary relationships between society, religion and politics.

  • Some Theoretical Insights on Social Movements and Resistance Practices in
           the Era of De-Politicization of Representative Politics

    • Authors: Fabio de Nardis, Luca Antonazzo
      Abstract: The global economic crisis of 2008 has fostered a new wave of de-politicization intended as the shifting of national policy making from the public political arena to the field of extra-political supranational and international actors. The public policy making has become tightly linked to criteria that are much more economic than political. This change has provoked a consequent mutation in the nature and behavior of social movements which has result in different kinds of crossbreeding. Traditional social movements with their State-addressed requests have given way to new forms of social conflict that do not directly address to the national government. These new forms of mobilization act primarily in the form of direct social actions aimed at impacting directly on the economy and the environment. The common element of such experiences can be identified in the mix of resilience and resistance that they express.

  • Participation, Neoliberalism and Depoliticisation of Public Action

    • Authors: Giulio Moini
      Abstract: The article argues that political elites – using participation as tools for depoliticisation strategies – seek to obtain the trust of the economic elite and, at the same time, to shield policy making from the unpopular consequences of neoliberal policies. In order to test this hypothesis a specific case of participatory processes, developed in Rome between 2014-2015 is considered.

After an analysis of actions based on financial, relational and administrative resources, the article focuses on how the firms use knowledge and discourses in order to shape policy makers’ frames and beliefs. The final section presents provisional evidence about the political role of an Italian consulting firm.

  • Political Empowerment of European Citizens. A Comparative Public Opinion
           and Approach

    • Authors: Antonio Alaminos Chica, Ignacia Perea Crespo
      Abstract: Over time, the European Union has undergone a number of highly significant integration processes on an economic, social and political level. With the structure of States, it has implemented a number of actions aimed at empowering citizens by harmonising different rights and producing relevant processes in first-generation political rights. Through the EU members’ public opinion, this article analyses the effects of European foreign migrants’ electoral rights in both local and European elections. With the analysis of the data from the 2010, 2012 and 2015 European barometers, it is concluded that there is a relation between the presence of European migrants and the opinion of the electoral effect, as well a significant relation between the existing subjective perception of political empowerment, the opinion on the effects of these rights with regard to political participation and the wish to extend these electoral rights for other elections.

  • Il mandato plebiscitario dei leader democratici. Antecedenti americani e
           sviluppi recenti

    • Authors: Fortunato Musella
      Abstract: The article aims at analysing different conception of presidential mandate when the process of personalisation is impacting on the contemporary democracies. It considers the prominence assumed by the American presidents during the Nineteenth century, after the advent of the so called Second Republic. And it shows how relevant analogies may be provided with European countries, particularly with Italy. Indeed, in both Old and new Continent, the rise of personal leaders is producing a different interpretation of the concept of political representation, and a consequent adaptation of the theory of democracy.

  • Élite e democrazia: una «promessa mantenuta»'

    • Authors: Franca Bonichi
      Abstract: Through the contribution of classical and contemporary authors, Political Sociology offers an important opportunity to reflect on the crisis affecting democracy today. Crucial is the relationship between elites and democracy and particularly the theory of democratic elitism, a paradigm that has been considered the main source of democratic legitimacy in the Western world for decades. Cornerstones of this paradigm are the competence and representativeness of the elites. Through the analysis of some of its exponents, Political Sociology gives us the instruments to process these prerogatives/functions and to use them as parameters in defining the quality of the democratic participation.

  • La leadership di Matteo Renzi. Il leader “televisivo” alla prova delle
           primarie del Partito democratico

    • Authors: Marco Damiani, Marco Mazzoni
      Abstract: The following article aims to study the 2013 primaries organized by the PD (Partito Democratico) for the election of the National Secretary of the Party. The outcome of said primaries (leader selection), that sees Matteo Renzi as the winner only a few weeks before his appointment to the presidency of the Council of Ministers, is compared to that obtained by the same party in 2007 and in 2009, respectively with Veltroni and Bersani as Secretaries. In this specific case study, the paper aims to analyse the peculiarities that distinguish Renzi’s leadership from that exercised by his predecessors. Within this framework our objective is to comprehend the role played by the mass media, and how Renzi used it in the internal battle for the party’s Secretariat. Our interest lies in understanding whether (and eventually why) television has been the informative tool most used by the people that, in the 2013 primaries, voted for Renzi. The results of our research, conducted using data provided by C&LS (Candidate & Leader Selection -, Standing Group of the Societá Italiana di Scienza Politica, highlight a close correlation between the candidate of choice and the communication tool used to access information regarding the primaries.

  • Gestire il cambiamento: Renzi, il PD e il nuovo

    • Authors: Rossana Sampugnaro
      Abstract: The organization patterns of the parties depend on new needs and on segmentation of interests. Political participation is very instable and develops often outside the traditional political organizations and in individualized manner on the web. In many parties, the reaction is the de-differentiation and the de-burocratization, linked to total or partial outsourcing of some functions: funding, interests aggregation, political mobilization, study of new policies or management of communication. For these goals, we observe the activities of organizations (think tanks, foundations, electoral committees), often directly dependent from the leader of party. The study proposes this approach to know the recent transformations in Partito Democratico after the “primary election” of Renzi as party leader: the contraction of party organization, the strong personalization of the leadership and the birth of new personal organizations as Leopolda and FutureDem. These new organizations are fundamental elements of “Renzi’s method” to make funding, to mobilize new supporters (often very different from traditional Pd membership), to elaborate and construct new policies and especially to include heterogeneous groups and single person, not always compatible with the party and its traditional rituals. From supporters’ recruitment point of view, this is very important for party. Thanks to a web survey, the study explore profiles of two organization for young people: “Giovani democratici” the youth branch of PD and FutureDem, a youth organization linked directly to leader. The presence of very different profiles is a resource for mobilization but it could became a critical element to construct shared public policies.

  • A Political Sociology of Populism and Leadership

    • Authors: Lorenzo Viviani
      Abstract: In the face of change in the social bases of advanced European democracies, politics has delayed the articulation of new cleavages characterising a society that can no longer be attributed to the perimeter of belonging and the social classes of the 20th century. The crisis is therefore not an expression of criticism against democracy as a political regime per sé, but rather corresponds to a crisis in the legitimacy of traditional political players. The democratic deficit feeding populism is not weakened by the claimed desire to broaden the participatory dimension of politics, insomuch as it derives from the loss of collective references in a society divided in new winners and new losers of globalization and in the midst of a crisis of the concept of equality. These aspects shall be analysed further as part of the interpretation of populism as a phenomenon comprising an appeal to the people and an opposition to the élite. The purpose of this paper is to address the issue of the politicization of anti-establishment sentiment, where populism is considered not so much as an ideology but as a political strategy of politicization of the rift between society and politics, where political leaders and parties are the key players in shaping the disaffection of the people toward the traditional mass politics.

  • Aspetti demografici ed ideologici del populismo in Europa

    • Authors: Carlo Ruzza, Enzo Loner
      Abstract: This article explores the socio-economic and attitudinal profile of voters of radical right populist in ten European countries. It provides confirmation of the so-called syndrome of the ‘losers of globalization’ which the literature indicates as a predictor of the radical right vote and which consists in perceptions of declining standard of living, blaming of migrants and generalized concerns with personal security. In addition, it examines the propensity to vote for radical right parties when they are, or are not, in an incumbent position. It hypothesizes that their electoral success will be inversely related to their incumbent role. This is because they are mainly defined and voted as anti-system parties, and any incumbent role undermines this self-characterization. The article provides confirmation of this hypothesis.

  • Populism, a Thread and a Chance. Between Demagogy and Participation

    • Authors: Cristiano Gianolla
      Abstract: This paper inquiries into the concept of populism from a sociological perspective. This is done by highlighting the unstable co-presence of demagogy and participation through an intercultural analysis of the European and the Indian discursive approach and its construction of popular politics. The underlying understanding is that the concept is misrepresented by the equation of populisms with demagogy. The paper therefore builds on “participatory populism” to promote the expansion, rather than contraction, of the term’s ambiguity. The analysis accounts for the emergence of populisms as subaltern politics that are unable to subvert the political status quo but are able to enhance it morally. The study starts by problematizing the concept’s historical double movement that is at the basis of its demagogic and participatory features, then it focuses on populism as a signifier reinforced by the impasse between the two pillars of liberal democracy. Furthermore, by critically building on Laclau’s position, its social discursive formation is investigated. Chatterjee’s “political society” and the party-movements (the Aam Aadmi Party and the Movimento 5 Stelle) are two contradictory cases that are proposed to exercise an expansion of the concept.

  • Io sono (come) voi! Alla ricerca della mobilitazione elettorale: leader e
           partiti populisti nell’Europa postcomunista

    • Authors: Sorina Soare
      Abstract: Populism has often been used to analyze political parties, leaders and post-communist movements. Most of the literature on this topic is concentrated on the ideological features of post-communist populism. Based on a comparison between the Slovak National Party, the Bulgarian Ataka and the Hungarian Jobbik, the analysis aims to provide new insights on the organizational dimensions of post-communist populist parties. More specifically, the analysis focuses on the features of the three parties’ leaders from their origins until 2016, and it is based on qualitative content analysis of official documents (party statutes and programs), as well as desk research. The paper argues that although highly centralized organizational structures and strong leaders characterize all of the three parties, important variances across cases can be documented. Differences are mainly explained in relation to the age of the parties analyzed and their origins. Beyond the limited empirical focus, the analysis fine-tunes the role of the party leader in post-communist political phenomena, the still open question being whether the parties analyzed look increasingly like mainstream parties when it comes to the features of their leaders, or the other way around.

  • Una possibile risposta alla crisi della partecipazione e della
           rappresentanza: il partito-movimento e il caso Podemos

    • Authors: Raffaella Fittipaldi
      Abstract: The article deals with the new political forms of organisation and the party change, in a sociological and political science perspective. Wondering about the electoral success of new political actors and the crisis of the traditional one, it is introduced by the party-movement category. The article is divided into three parts. The first part discusses the salience of the classical political categories, while the second part provides an analysis of a single case study: the Spanish party-movement Podemos. Finally, bridging the literature and the empirical field, the third part suggests an interpretation about the features of the new political party. The findings show the emergence of a hybrid form challenging the political parties of the past century in organizing and answering for the needs of civil society.

This analysis is carried out on the shoulders of leading authors such as Max Weber,Talcott Parsons,Harold D. Lasswell, Hannah Arendt, Julien Freund and Giovanni Sartori.

  • Max Weber professeur, Max Weber voyageur

    • Authors: Hinnerk Bruhns
      Abstract: The thousands of letters written by Max Weber between 1895 and 1920, now published in the Max Weber-Gesamtausgabe, throw new light on many sides of his private life and his public activities. One of the less well studied aspects of his life are his numerous long trips to European countries before the outbreak of the First World War. Many of Weber’s letters from Scotland, England, Ireland, France, Spain, Holland, Belgium (but less those from Italy) have as much sociological and anthropological interest as the letters from his trip to America, which have been studied recently by Lawrence A. Scaff. Another aspect of Weber’s personality tackled with in this article are his activities as a teacher and as director of the seminar of economics at the universities of Freiburg im Breisgau and Heidelberg from 1894 to 1903, when he resigns definitively from university after having spent since several years, for medical reasons, more time in Italy and elsewhere than in Heidelberg. Weber’s way back to university at the end of the war, at Vienna in summer 1918 and at Munich in 1919/20, could have opened a new period in the history of German social sciences, but unfortunately he died shortly after having started his lessons on the sociology of the state.
