Les formes contemporaines dans la disqualification sociale

Abstract : This article is based on a work, “Social Disqualification”, published in 1991 and evaluates the major transformations that have occurred since that date in the areas of poverty and insecurity. Evolution in three areas are considered: 1) Today poverty hits not only the unemployed or those dependent on government assistance but also those with insecure jobs whose situation necessitates an analysis of the changes in the forms of professional integration; 2) Society’s view of poverty has also changed. In the 1980s and 1990s there was general agreement that society had an obligation to help the poorest of the poor, the 2000s saw an increased intolerance for those on social assistance, often considered as lazy and unworthy beneficiaries of government assistance. 3) The transformation of the RMI into the RSA established a new regime for assistance to the economically insecure. Despite these changes it is clear that in France as elsewhere poverty that deprives those affected of opportunities is a permanent fixture of society.
