Les risques psychosociaux au travail sont désormais l'objet de l'attention du législateur au sein des pays de l'Union européenne, mais à des degrés divers. Certains pays ont adapté des législations depuis un certain nombre d'années, d'autres ne s'y sont attelés que récemment. La portée et le recul sur ces textes sont aussi différents. le rôle du juge est ici essentiel. Cet ouvrage propose ainsi d'étudier les risques psychosociaux au prisme de la jurisprudence.

How is drug policy developed? Members of the Pompidou Group research platform from 17 European countries have studied this question, taking into account differing national political contexts, the influence of international conventions and drug strategies at V European level, the evolution of scientific knowledge, and treatment of drug addiction in the most broad sense of the word. This work in part provides a reply to the question whether countries opt for an integrated policy on substances, or for a separate policy for each substance. This publication also attempts to identify to what extent civil society, practice and science influence the formulation of drug policy.

Social Determinants of Health, 2nd Edition gives an authoritative overview of the social and economic factors which are known to be the most powerful determinants of population health in modern societies. Written by acknowledged experts in each field, it provides accessible summaries of the scientific justification for isolating different aspects of social and economic life as the primary determinants of a population's health. The new edition takes account of the most recent research and also includes additional chapters on ethnicity and health, sexual behaviours, the elderly, housing and neighbourhoods. Recognition of the power of socioeconomic factors as determinants of health came initially from research on health inequalities. This has led to a view of health as not simply about individual behaviour or exposure to risk, but how the socially and economically structured way of life of a population shapes its health. Thus exercise and accidents are as much about a society's transport system as about individual decisions; and the nation's diet involves agriculture, food manufacture, retailing, and personal incomes as much as individual choice. But a major new element in the picture we have developed is the importance of the social, or psycho-social, environment to health. For example, health in the workplace for most employees - certainly for office workers - is less a matter of exposure to physical health hazards as of the social environment, of how supportive it is, whether people have control over their work, whether their jobs are secure. A similar picture emerges in other areas ranging from the health importance of the emotional environment in early childhood to the need for more socially cohesive communities. Social Determinants of Health should be read by those interested in the wellbeing of modern societies. It is a must for public health professionals, for health promotion specialists, and for people working in the many fields of public policy which we now know make such an important contribution to health.
