La famille risquogène ? Enjeux de recherche en sciences humaines et sociales. Une revue de littérature pluridisciplinaire

Abstract : Whilst the nature of family responsibility is a traditionnal issue, recent concerns on the nature of parenting conveys a deep questioning on the Welfare state’s capacity to support families in their aim to protect and raise their children in a fulfilling environment. In this climate of uncertainty, a process of “mythification” (Cresson, 2006) of family is expected to emerge. Whether approved or not, this process leads to present family as “the cause of the negative effects occuring rather than the place where they occur” (Beck, 2001). In this search for a person to blame which is typical of risk societies, it could be appealing to consider family as the root for all evil in modern life. Contradictory views on its social function create a vagueness on its role but also great expectations: it is hence tempting, in a utilitarist perspective, to sum up everything to a “family affair”. Is family a vector of risk? This plurisdisciplinary literature review will attempt to find out how various subjects such as education, epidemiology, psychology and sociology understand the relationship between family and juvenile high-risk practises.
