  • Values and tensions in Iberian cultural policy: a study of cases

    • Authors: Arturo Rodriguez Morató, João Teixeira Lopes, Mariano Martín Zamorano , Lígia Ferro, Natália Azevedo, María Victoria Sánchez Belando, María Andrade, Uxío Novo Rey, Sónia Apolinário, José Ricardo
      Abstract: This article focuses on the main contributions of the European project Uncharted on emerging values in European cultural governance, relying on a wide document analysis, focus groups and interviews with a plethora of actors. By analyzing four Iberian case studies we seek to identify the diversity of values that shape cultural policy decisions and practices, focusing on the tensions and conflicts between the actors involved and their valuations. It will be shown that actors mobilize around disputes over the hierarchy of values, which requires an understanding of the contexts in which each repertoire is established, even if the conflictuality is exercised within the same model of cultural policy, prevalent in the two Iberian countries.

  • The causes and impacts of early marriage: the ordeal of girls in East
           Java, Indonesia

    • Authors: Bagong Suyanto, Rahma Sugihartati, Medhy Aginta Hidayat, Nadia Egalita, Siti Mas'udah
      Abstract: This article examines the causes and impacts of early marriage in the East Java province, Indonesia. This study employed a mixed method approach to conduct the research. This study identifies that the causes of early marriage are not just economic, but also sociocultural. Girls who are married early not only are at risk of health problems but also are restricted in their education and work opportunities. In some cases, early marriage is also closely related to the possibility of intimate partner violence. This study highlight the need for close attention to early marriage in Indonesia, which affects many young women and underage girls.

  • Social interventions aimed at children’s rights from 1964 to 2021: a
           bibliometric review

    • Authors: Miguel Ángel Pleitez-Herrera, Erick Leobardo Álvarez Aros
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to explore the management of social programs, practices and interventions based on the guarantee of children’s rights. Therefore, from a bibliometric analysis, a bibliometric search was carried out from the Scopus database and a processing of the information through the R software, “Bibliometrix and Biblioshiny”, considering the time period from 1964 to October 2021. In this regard, two key periods were visualized, which evidenced two great ways of conceiving social welfare in terms of guaranteeing the rights of children. The first spanned from 1964 to 2012 where the emphasis was on improving the economy, and the second spanned from 2013 to 2021 where the person is valued as the center of social intervention processes. This study constitutes a guideline for the construction of an antecedent on the evolution of social programs, practices and interventions and their impact on the lives of children.

  • A sociological perspective on the “challenge” of the crisis and
           austerity among older adults

    • Authors: Patricia Coelho, José de São José, João Eduardo Martins
      Abstract: The economic crisis has led to austerity in Portugal and in the European Union. This article conceptualizes the crisis and austerity as a “challenge” and reveals how it was manifested in the lives of older people. Very little is known about this topic, including in Portugal. Our study used a biographical/narrative approach and carried out 28 interviews with Portuguese older adults (65 years or more) living in Faro municipality. It concluded that the “challenge” is manifested by a contradiction between the lived old age and the expected/idealized old age, whose features vary according to sociological profiles.

  • Moving too fast' Addressing temporality and acceleration in Portuguese
           business ventures scaling

    • Authors: Joao Vasco Coelho
      Abstract: In recent years, Portugal has been increasingly credited as an emergent European entrepreneurial and technological hub, a rising and promising start-up nation. An ethnographic study was developed in one of the most successful start-up ventures operating in Portugal, with the goal of scrutinizing policy effectiveness in an employment creation and relations perspective. Considering the effect temporality regimes and acceleration are increasingly considered to have as new business ventures socioeconomic base, the study focus was placed on speeding-up implications, namely on how actors experience speed as infrastructural base of employment relations.
