Medical students encounter pharmaceutical marketing on a reuglar basis from their first year at university onwards. Several studies have demonstrated the impact it has on the perception of students toward the place of pharmaceutical industry in medicine. It also has an impact on the quantity, the costs and the frequency of physicians prespcription with a decrease in the quality. Thereby, importance of managing interactions between pharmaceutical industry and healthcare profesionnals is not to be demonstrated. These interactions happen in a context of decresing public subsidies granted to higher education and healt, which pushes institutions to increase their share of private funding with a risk of endangering their independence. This is to be taken into account, however medical schools should not lose sight of their role of providing the most objective and independent training for their students. Implementation of conflict of interest policies at American medical schools has permitted an improvement of the situation and a diminution of the interactions between students and industry. Since then, studies have been conducted in Australia, Canada, France and Germany to assess the conflict of interest policies within national medical faculties. As little information was available on the situation at Belgian medical schools, we decided to investigate the field and to reproduce the methodology used by foreign researchers in the context of Belgian medical training. We searched the ten medical schools websites for information relative to conflict of interest policies or element of the curriculum addressing this issue. We also surveyed each office of the Dean to ask them for additional information that we might have missed. Despite a relatively high response rate, only one faculty really wished to participate in our study, five of them having expressed their wish not to participate. A ranking of the medical schools was built on the basis of the data collected with criteria assessing the management of conflict of interest and industrial influence. Our results demonstrate the little attention paid by university authorities to the issues of independence in medical training and conflict of interest. This is inconsistent with many recommandations of international organizations and demands formulated by medical students themselves for an independent medical training, free from undue indluence of commercial interests. However, not everything has to be done. Foreign experiences show that it is possible to change the lines in favor of more independence. Many exemples of achievements can serve as a basis for actions in Belgium in order to make medical world and the public in general aware of the importance of a medicine without influence. [less ▲]

This project highlighted how the current assessment of B&C waste program and its future is not only a matter of facts, it is also a matter of concerns (Latour 2004) and for some actors, clearly matter of care (de la Bellacasa 2011). B&C waste and spent fuel have a social life: how to manage such radioactive materials is not only a matter of established facts but it is also a matter of interests, a ‘matter of concerns’. They are indeed intimately interrelated: ‘Matters of facts are processes of entangled concerns’ (De La Bellacasa, 2011, p.89). Concerns attach and hold together matters of fact and contribute to affirming their reality by adding further articulations’ (id.) ONDRAF/NIRAS, like each actor involved in the management program, produce ‘matters of concerns’ strongly entangled with its matter of facts. In some case, things can be more than interrelated matters of facts and concerns: they are ‘matters of care’. But what does it mean exactly? In any situation, if we ask yourselves: ‘is it a fact?’, ‘Am I concerned?’ or ‘do I care?’, our practices, our discourses and our engagement on an issue differ (de la Bellacasa 2011). Applied to B&C waste and spent fuel, it could be ‘waste are already here and it must be managed’ versus ‘I’m concerned by the faith of such radioactive materials’ versus ‘I care about the way to handle them’. Then, considering the B&C waste as matters of care changes the way we are engaged in the program and the way we frame it. [less ▲]

Based on a review of scholarly, regulatory and policy literatures, this article illustrates how‘safety culture’and‘security culture’are conventionally understood within the context of high-risk organizations. It identifies two important recurring gaps in the literature: (1) the subordination of the analysis of security culture to safety culture concepts, and (2) the anthropocentricity inscribed in both notions, which sideline the dynamic interplaybetween social and technical elements in the constitution of‘culture’. To address these gaps, the article in-troduces concepts and heuristics from Science and Technology Studies, specifically co-production and Actor-Network Theory. Using the concrete examples of the labelling of hazardous materials and the“four eyes”principle, it highlights how these heuristics may open onto a more symmetrical analysis of safety and security cultures in high-risk contexts. It thereby seeks to make visible the mutual shaping of safety and security cultures and attend to the roles of non-human actors as active participants in such processes [less ▲]

How to deconfine safely? At present, many countries are considering a deconfinement strategy, with only few having implemented it. The "best practices", thus, still need to be defined. In this context, the GIGA community would like to carry out "a deconfinement experience in real time". Concretely, the GIGA proposes to collectively define its "deconfinement" methods, and to deploy them, by designing and implementing a deconfinement protocol. The report presents the results on the online survey on "Community engagement in designing a modus operandi to lift GIGA's lockdown. Based on the Delphi Method, the GIGA community members have been invited to identify their expectations on the future protocol and suggested concrete measures for the deconfinement protocol. There were 381 people who completed the first round of the survey (56,70% participation rate) and 340 for the second round of the survey. [less ▲]

A positive understanding of the ecosystem services of green and blue space projects in urban areas is slowly emerging in the Walloon Region. So far, these experiments involving cities, universities and administrations have been carried out in the absence of a shared and coherent framework, with little political support. Two major obstacles are identified by the speakers who testify to a paralyzing politico-administrative fragmentation. First, an absence of a transversal approach between the regional administrations responsible for land use planning and those for the environment. Next, there is almost total responsibility for local actors who have neither the means nor the skills in “environment-health” matters, nor the capacity for ambitious developments in terms of territorial and land planning [less ▲]

This report presents the synthesis of the online enquiry concerning the future for long-term management of high-level radioactive wastes (‘HLRW’) and spent fuel in Belgium, conducted in April and November 2019 by political scientists from the Liege University (Spiral Research Centre, RU Cite, ULiege) with the support of the University of Antwerp (Milieu en Samenleving, UAntwerpen). The main objective of the enquiry was to identify the needs and expectations of various stakeholders regarding the long-term management of high-level radioactive waste and the type of decision-making process they wish to see implemented. 242 people participated; 109 questions were asked; 11,695 responses were proposed by the participants. These constitute a very pluralistic panel of actors involved on nuclear issues for more than 10 years, and composed of committed citizens, scientists but also members of NGOs in favour or against nuclear power, municipal/regional/federal officials active or not in the nuclear and health fields.

The generalization of the use of New Public Management (NPM) instruments, in the name of the effectiveness and efficiency of public action, makes it necessary to reformulate the question of the link between democracy and administration. At the local level, it is possible to freshly analyze the triangle between policy - administration - citizens, as it evolves following the appropriation of new strategic management instruments and participatory mechanisms. The study of the emergence of these devices in Wallonia, highlights new modes of exercise of power and public action and raises the question of their inclusion in a logic of democratic reinforcement.
