The paper defends that the campaign of secularist movement against resurgence of right-wing extremism, although animated by very good intentions, is fragile on two points : it gives too much emphasis on the denunciation of a historical past that is no longer reclaimed by the far right itself and too little on the learning processes necessary to foster democracy; and on the other hand, this struggle may appear partial and one sided because the fight against right-wing extremism is not a monopoly of the secularist movement.

This article proposes to analyse the discourses on “integration” developed during the last few years within various “ethnics” churches (France-Belgium). Of Pentecostal and Evangelical obedience, these churches, stemming from Congolese’s migrations (DRC), can be estimated to several hundreds and even up to a few thousands in Europe. Some constant can be observed in this new branch of Protestantism despite its fragmented and plural movement, particularly the right to think oneself beyond the logics of reduction to otherness. The integrationist discourse produced constitutes a real break with the ideas carried by the autochthon order of both hierarchies and centralities. [less ▲]

These last years, the objective of abolishing child labour in Burkina Faso (a West African country) has tried to create a national unanimity regarding the commitment of collective actors (decision-makers, civil society, employers, labor unions and media). It started by integrating the National Program of child welfare and the schedule of the Ministry of Employment, Ministry of Social Action, and the Ministry of Education. Burkina Faso joined the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) in 1999, created a department of fight against child labour in 2006 and raised the minimum age for admission to employment from 14 to 16 years. This paper supports a critical view of global actions to fight child labour and discusses the complexities of this issue in Burkina Faso. Using an analysis of the State’s National Plan of Action on the elimination of child Labour and two local cases studies on projects that are aimed at removing children from their work, it shows how the local context of working children and their parents are ignored in order to comply with international policy agenda and to cater to donor demands.

The increasing prevalence of obesity is contributing substantially to the ongoing epidemic of type 2 diabetes. Abdominal adiposity, a feature of ectopic fat syndrome, is associated with silent inflammation, abnormal hormone secretion, and various metabolic disturbances that contribute to insulin resistance and insulin secretory defects, resulting in type 2 diabetes, and induce a toxic pattern that leads to cardiovascular disease, liver pathologies, and cancer. Despite the importance of weight control strategies in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes, long-term results from lifestyle or drug interventions are generally disappointing. Furthermore, most of the classic glucose-lowering drugs have a side-effect of weight gain, which renders the management of most overweight or obese people with type 2 diabetes even more challenging. Many anti-obesity pharmacological drugs targeting central control of appetite were withdrawn from the market because of safety concerns. The gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor orlistat was the only anti-obesity drug available until the recent US, but not European, launch of phentermine–controlled-release topiramate and lorcaserin. Improved knowledge about bodyweight regulation opens new prospects for the potential use of peptides derived from the gut or the adipose tissue. Combination therapy will probably be necessary to avoid compensatory mechanisms and potentiate initial weight loss while avoiding weight regain. New glucose-lowering treatments, especially glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists and sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors, offer advantages over traditional antidiabetic drugs by promoting weight loss while improving glucose control. In this Review, we explore the overlapping pathophysiology and also how various treatments can, alone or in combination, combat the dual burden of obesity and type 2 diabetes. [less ▲]

Malgré le renforcement de la législation depuis 1990 et la lutte engagée depuis 2000, le travail des enfants continue d’être une question préoccupante au Burkina Faso. Pourquoi ? Alors que la lutte pour son abolition, dans le pays, n’a jamais connu un tel intérêt, comment comprendre que de nombreux enfants continuent de travailler, souvent dans des conditions qui relèvent des « pires formes » de travail des enfants, selon les critères de l’OIT ? Que pensent et disent les enfants travailleurs sur cette lutte engagée contre leur travail ? Telles sont les questions que l’ouvrage se propose de développer. À partir d’une enquête de terrain de longue durée au Burkina Faso, cet ouvrage offre une analyse des conditions d’émergence, de traduction et d’application des politiques internationales de lutte contre le travail des enfants. En confrontant à un corpus empirique inédit les théories et les interprétations dominantes, l’ouvrage propose une relecture de la sociologie et de l’anthropologie de l’enfance et de l’analyse des politiques publiques.

L’aviation commerciale émet près de 5% des émissions mondiales de CO2 dues aux activités humaines. Sa part ne fait qu’augmenter et le développement de la mobilité internationale des biens et des personnes laisse présager une prolongation des tendances historiques de croissance du transport aérien. Avec comme conséquence, une assiette de plus en plus lourde en CO2 lorsque nos aliments proviennent de contrées lointaines par voie aérienne (kérosène). [less ▲]

Cardiovascular prevention in subjects at high or very high risk requires a drastic reduction in LDL cholesterol according to the concept "the lower, the better". The combination of an inhibitor of cholesterol synthesis and a selective inhibitor of intestinal absorption results in a complementary and synergistic LDL-lowering activity. Besides a first fixed combination ezetimibe-simvastatin (Inegy(R)), a new fixed combination is presented, Atozet(R) that combines atorvastatin and ezetimibe. Because atorvastatin is more potent than simvastatin, this novel fixed combination should facilitate reaching therapeutic goals in terms of LDL cholesterol amongst patients with severe hypercholesterolaemia and/or at high or very high cardiovascular risk.

Coveram® is a new fixed combination of an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, perindopril, and a calcium antagonist, amlodipine. This new medication is indicated for the treatment of arterial hypertension and/or stable coronary heart disease. Such fixed combination of two molecules that have been extensively evaluated according to evidence-based medicine offers the advantage of an excellent efficacy, associated with a good tolerance profile, and favours patient’s compliance. The marketing of different formulations of Coveram® combining various dosages allows easy adjustment and titration of each of the components according to the individual patient’s characteristics.

Triplixam is a fixed dose combination of three well known antihypertensive agents, with complementary activities, to control blood pressure in patients with arterial hypertension: perindopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, indapamide, a diuretic whith thiazide-like effects but also specific properties, and amlodipine, a long-acting calcium antagonist of the dihydropyridine family. The potential synergic action allows better control of blood pressure with once daily administration, while limiting the incidence of adverse events. Various presentations with different dosages are available to facilitate individualized therapy. Warnings and precautions for use of every molecule should of course be respected. Such a fixed dose combination should contribute to limit clinical inertia and to improve therapeutic compliance. [less ▲]

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex disease with multiple defects, which generally require a combination of several pharmacological approaches to control hyperglycaemia. Combining a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (DPP-4i) and a sodium-glucose cotransporter type 2 inhibitor (SGT2i) appears to be an attractive approach because the two drugs exert different and potentially complementary glucose-lowering effects. Dual therapy (initial combination or stepwise approach) is more potent than either monotherapy in patients treated with diet and exercise or already treated with metformin. Combining the two pharmacological options is safe and does not induce hypoglycaemia. Two fixed-dose combinations (FDCs) are already available (saxagliptin-dapagliflozin and linagliptin-empagliflozin) and others are in current development. [less ▲]
