We want to express our thanks to the staff of Palgrave Macmillan, especially Anca Pusca and Katelyn Zingg, for their generous support. We must underline the editing work carried out by Majid Yar, with his usual kindness and excellence.

Surely we have not exhausted in this book all the connections between social policies and emotions, but we are sure that the critical discussion of these topics should remain a central axis of the social sciences. We also offer enormous thanks to Aldana Boragnio and Andrea Dettano for their extensive collaboration. It is intended to facilitate the observation of the processes by which the state manages to neutralize the effects of inequality, producing a containment of the subjects through compensatory consumption.

As we will see later, an emotion is characterized, among other things, by being a practice that transforms the world sensu Sartre. Social policies are state actions, which, among other traits, are qualified by deliberately seeking to suture failures of state, market and civil society in the equitable reproduction of the social structure, that is, changing the social world by suturing their conflict breaks.

In the process of the aforementioned social intervention, the state develops sociabilities, experiences and sensibilities.

De Sena, A. Taking as a starting point the empirical data on Argentina and the information associated with the problems of social policies in Latin America and the rest of the world, the book presented here attempts to elaborate a view from the Global South. It is from this double perspective that many of the consequences of social policies are colonial.

This designation is intended to emphatically emphasize the persistence of colonial ties and the inadequacy of the description of the current period as postcolonial. For us, this situation can be characterized as follows: 1. Capitalism has been transformed emphasizing some of its previous features into a large predatory energy machine—especially bodily— that has configured and redefined its social bearability mechanisms and devices for the regulation of sensations while being a great international repressive apparatus.

The privileged route of connection between collective actions, phantoms and social fantasies is the acceptance that the body is the locus of conflict and order.

It is the place and locus of conflict where a good part of the logic of contemporary antagonisms passes. From here, it is possible to observe the constitution of a political economy of morality, that is, some modes of sensibilities, practices and representations that put domination into words. At present, the emergence of religion of colonial helplessness can be observed. A religion whose liturgy is the construction of social fantasies, in which dreams fulfil a central function as a kingdom of heaven on earth and the sociodicy of frustration, plays the role of narrating and making present the phantasmal hells of the past, now made present continuous.

SCRIBANO The occupation and expropriation to which the entire populations of the planet are subjected by global capitalism is imperial aggression that, although it takes various forms and densities, manifests itself in colonial relations. These three ways of presenting the subjection on a planetary scale are indeterminate, complex and changing forms that the capitalist system of exploitation and expropriation adopts to model, maintain and reproduce itself.

It is in this context that we maintain that: 1. When there are on the earth social groups that centralize the concentrated capacity of the imposition of needs, desires and actions constituting a political economy of morality that enshrines excess expropriations—thus avoiding all forms of autonomous practices— it is faced with a modality of imperialism; 2.

When there is a coalescence of relations between territories, nations and states that socialize the destructive effects of the processes of accumulation of environmental assets, and these relations are conditioned by the state of the productive fields of high profitability— structured by means of the connections of the global dominant classes—we are facing a situation of dependency; 3. When there is class segregation behind walls that contain and reproduce the moments of expropriation and dispossession, enshrined in the racialization of the relationship between colonist and colonized, the current colonial situation becomes effective.

This book was written with the conviction that elaborating a critical view of social policies as constructors of sensibilities is a task with a double relevance: theoretical, in terms of improving the comprehension of the place and weight of emotions in the contemporary world, and critical because it allows a systematic reflective act on the processes of loss of autonomy for people in the face of states and markets.

Book Content1 The introduction has a double objective: 1 to summarize the theoretical focus of the book, and 2 to point out the connections between the chapters, their themes and the epilogue. This implies making explicit our vision about the connections between emotions, social structuring and politics of sensibilities. Secondly, our perspective on the meaning of social policies, the intervention of the state in society and the current state of the so-called social question is developed.

Once the aforementioned theoretical presentation has been completed, the reader is introduced to the content of the chapters and the central conclusions of the book to provide a general framework for reading it.

SCRIBANO The first chapter2 points out how the social policies are closely related to the welfare state, political regimes and forms of social structure. From their contemporary configuration, the aforementioned policies imply the acceptance of some modality between capital and labour. The design and implementation of these moulds the social issue and therefore elaborates sociabilities and sensibilities.

The twenty-first century has impacted the social universe by incorporating changes in human relations, in social interactions, in the labour market and therefore in the form of social intervention that leads to a redefinition of well-being.

The second chapter aims to provide the reader with a synthetic approach on how the connections between emotions and social policies are understood. At the end, we explain what are the social connections between emotions and policies that the book as a whole supposes. In this context, this chapter adds to the aforementioned framework the emergence of three verifiable characteristics of those social processes, namely, the structuring of a Logic of Waste LoW , the elaboration of Perversion Policies PP and the Practices of Banalization of Good BoG.

The main goal of Chap. The interviews cited were conducted by us or the people who participated in these inquiries under our supervision. The numbers and forms of citation have been standardized to simplify reading. Chapter 6 seeks to contextualize the situation of violence that women recipients of social policies experience as a first approximation of the life world. For this purpose, information is used drawn from the last 16 years of investigations, in order to review the permanence of the forms of violence.

This way of presenting the chapter was chosen for two reasons: 1 because the word of the researcher only operates while engaged in reflective listening, and 2 to elaborate a plot where the voices become a narrative that reveals the lives of woman who live with violence.

The aim Chap. In the same vein, the deep connection between public education and social policies continues to be a central axis in the politics of sensibilities. SCRIBANO synthesize the school experiences of poor women giving some clues to understand the place of educational practices in the management of sensibilities and 3 as a final opening, we propose to see school practices as a basic component of the management of compensated sensibilities.

Chapter 8 attempts to reflect on social policies, paying attention to those aimed at the promotion of microenterprises, observing them as a targeting strategy implemented for at least three decades.

As an argumentative modality, we begin by reviewing the labour issue and the different social policies which were designed to improve the situations associated with poverty and unemployment. Then, we analyse how several of those implemented programmes—aimed at a particular type of population, with certain characteristics—were focused and intervened upon the effects of the problem and not its cause.

Therefore, the last point explores the conceptions regarding universal targeting or massiveness policies, the latter as a modality that emerges during the last decade. For some years now, there has been a recurring theme that emerges from a set of interviews carried out in different projects: the narration of aid as a key to structuring the sensibilities of the interviewees concerning the receipt of conditional transfers of income.

It is in this context that the chapter seeks to make clear the place of help in the experiences narrated by the subjects receiving a conditional cash transfer. It ends by reviewing how the Conditional Cash Transfers Programs CCTPs organize life around feeling helped, so far away from an autonomous subject, leaving in evidence the centrality of such programmes in the structuring of sensibilities and in redefining the components of the political economy of morality.

Chapter 10 tries to show the connections between bodies with little energy available for action and food policies. The chapter seeks to make evident the connections between food policies and predation in the Argentine case since the s that have, as a direct consequence, the dispossession of corporal and social energy through the management of the politics of sensibilities.

Under the current conditions of the massive food assistance strategies, and to build the connection between food policies and bodily and social energy, we have selected the following argumentative strategy: 1 the basic contents of the concepts of bodily energies and predation are summarized, 2 the deficiencies of the state devices in generating adequate nutritional conditions are presented and 3 we offer some reflections to clarify the objective set for the chapter. We conclude that, since the s at least, there are food programmes in Argentina that have expanded their coverage in one way or another, reaching out to more children and mothers.

These programmes have achieved relative success in helping to reduce infant mortality and maintaining the reproduction of the physical life of millions of people.

However, neither of the contents, volumes and deliveries of the aforementioned plans have been effective in ensuring satisfactory nutrient intake for adequate development. One of the strategies most used in the twentieth century to manage and weld the cracks left by the tensions and conflicts between capital and labour has been the so-called welfare state. In this strategy, the centrality of social policy has been fundamental according to its spatial and temporal contexts. In recent years, we have seen changes in relations between the state, social policies and the politics of sensibilities.

SCRIBANO argumentation: firstly, we summarize the diverse views on the welfare state; secondly, we show the connections between the social, political and social policies; and, in the third place, they are synthesized with the practices of feeling associated with occupability.

The chapter ends with some reflections about the consequences of the phenomenon described. At the height of the welfare state, a political economy of morality based on work was consolidated and deepened as an organizer of daily life.

In the crisis of welfare models, the ability to organize the day-to-day was differentiated between those who still had work despite their precariousness and those who had to accept state aid as an input for the reproduction of their material conditions of existence. In this framework, social policies competed with work in terms of their differential impacts in the structuring of the everyday. Diciembre IZA PolicyPaper, n. Scribano, A.

The Sociology of Happiness in Buenos Aires. De Sena. Revista de Ciencias Sociales 1— This chapter summarizes schematically the contours of the aforementioned complexities, bearing in mind that they are the pillars on which the connections between social policies, emotions and sensitization policies will be presented in the next chapter.

To achieve the aforementioned task, we have followed the following argument: 1 our conceptual view of the State, social issues and public policies is outlined and 2 a theoretical vision is introduced on what will be understood by social policies. It is important to emphasize that this theoretical synthesis includes the general lines of how the State and public policies are specific practices that shape societies and in that action are connected with the elaboration of sensitivities.

We have also analysed the path in which the notion of universal income is lost to keep conditional cash transfers, consolidating paradoxical and contradictory policies focuses De Sena The policies of bodies and emotions are inscribed and elaborated in certain geopolitical and geocultural contexts.
