  • Education and social classes in Portugal: continuities and changes in the
           21st century

    • Authors: Pedro Abrantes
      Abstract: The relation between education and the class structure is in the core of the sociological project, since its foundation. This article aims to review some of its main theories and results, in the light of the transformations of the Portuguese society over the last few decades. Such changes are so pervasive that some doubts were raised over the heuristic potential of the concept of social class or, at least, of its relation with schooling. Therefore, this article clarifies the importance of this relation, and explores recent variations in its configuration. After a review of the national and international literature, a set of empirical data resulting from the European Social Survey is presented and discussed, comparing the results from 2002 and 2018.

  • Work transformations in contexts of pression for professional performance

    • Authors: David Tavares, Noémia Lopes, Carlos Manuel Gonçalves
      Abstract: This article is based to a theoretical reflection on the changes in the nature and times of work in contexts of high pressure for performance, based on three occupational groups: journalists, nurses and police officers. We highlight the trends for increasing technological and digital competencies; control over work in the form of technosurveillance; scrutiny of the activity of the professionals; and the totalizing trace of work, in temporal and spacial terms, which generates an overlap between the professional and personal/family domains.

  • Emigration and policies: analysis of electoral programmes and legislative
           initiatives, 2011 to 2019

    • Authors: Inês Vidigal, Carlota Moura Veiga
      Abstract: This article aims to understand the differences in the Portuguese State’s behaviour towards its residents abroad, in different migratory and economic contexts, by analyzing the electoral programs presented in the 2011 and 2015 legislative elections, and the legislative initiatives presented in the XII and XIII legislative periods. The most important conclusions were that the different migratory contexts substantially influence the political action of the state, whereas the different economic contexts seem to influence emigration more than the mechanisms used by the state to connect with its communities abroad.

  • “I killed him”. Marital homicide commited by Portuguese women: a
           qualitative criminological analysis

    • Authors: Mafalda Ferreira, Jorge Quintas, Sofia Neves
      Abstract: The paper presents the results of a qualitative study conducted with 14 women serving prison sentences in Portugal, for killing their (former) partners. Aiming to analyze the possible relationship between the practice of homicide and a previous history of domestic violence, among other factors, in-depth interviews were developed, and their individual files were examined. Results suggest that these women experienced several risk factors for domestic violence and marital homicide, although their motives for killing were varied. It was possible to verify that proven histories of domestic violence in court did reduce the dosimetry of the sentences.

  • Zero tolerance or nule efficacy' Public policies and sports
           regulations to fight match-fixing

    • Authors: César de Cima, Marcelo Moriconi
      Abstract: Through semi-structured interviews and documentary analysis this article assesses and exposes how the “zero tolerance” policy implemented by UEFA, the European football’s governing body, is inefficient in inducing compliance in football players, at the level of match-fixing practices. The excessive emphasis on individual ethical, the externalization of the phenomenon as an organized crime problem and the reluctance to admit internal governance failures are the main explanatory reasons. The article claims that football regulation should move from a logic of compliance to enforcement politics.

  • Evaluation profiles in third sector organizations: differentiated
           implications on organizational learning

    • Authors: Mónica Lopes
      Abstract: This article explores patterns of representations and practices of evaluation in third sector organizations (TSO), within the framework of accountability relationships. The research strategy is based on 45 semi-structured interviews with different agents of the evaluation and the third sector fields, and an online questionnaire to 575 representatives of TSO operating in Portugal. The analysis estimates the influence and relevance of a diversity of variables associated with both internal and institutional environments upon the configuration of evaluation practices and representations, and assesses the barriers and factors that enhance the role of evaluation in strengthening the organization’s mission. The composition of four distinct evaluation profiles, based on exploratory statistical procedures, and their different implications for organizational learning, provides important clues for the (re)definition of public policies for the sector.
