Les porteurs de stigmates. Entre expériences intimes, contraintes institutionnelles et expressions collectives – Héas S., Dargère C. (dir.)

Héas S., Dargère C. (dir.), (2014). Les porteurs de stigmates. Entre expériences intimes, contraintes institutionnelles et expressions collectives, Paris, L’Harmattan, Collection Des Hauts&Débats (grand format), février, 298 pages.

Les processus de stigmatisation alimentent et entretiennent l’exclusion. Cet ouvrage fournit un espace de parole aux victimes : être brûlée à l’acide, souffrir d’un trouble psychique handicapant, vivre des orientations sexuelles minoritaires, etc. Il présente des analyses dans le cadre de l’école, du sport, de l’hôpital général ou psychiatrique. Enfin, il précise la condition de personnes vulnérables particulièrement exposées à la stigmatisation. La sociologie, l’ethnologie, l’histoire, les sciences de l’information et de la communication, mais aussi la pédagogie sont mobilisées pour mieux comprendre ces processus et ces personnes, leurs trajectoires, leurs réactions, leurs mobilisations. Le stigmate n’est pas une marque indélébile inscrite une fois pour toute. Ses conséquences sont parfois durables, mais les actions et réactions, les adaptations matérielles, symboliques, permettent de construire des expériences riches d’une variété humaine, d’une mixité sociale et culturelle, à vivre, à expérimenter dans le respect de tous et toutes.

Acid Survivors Foundation team and Naila, an acid survivor, in front of the Supreme Court of Pakistan,  a few minutes after the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mr Iftikhar Chaudry, issued an historical statement requesting the Pakistani government to establish a legal framework so that acid sale would be regulated and monitored, and acid attack perpetrators severely punished. The Chief Justice of Pakistan also stated that it was the government duty to provide free medical care to acid survivors and ensure that these survivors would access rehabilitation services. Last but not least, Mr Iftikhar Chaudry praised Acid Survivors Foundation work!
