Rik Pinxten is an emeritus professor of anthropology at Ghent University and carried out fieldwork among the Navajo Indians in the United States. This book advocates changing our basic attitude: humanism and democracy, but beyond hyper-individualism and the commodification of man and nature. We can learn from the so-called primitive cultures in their dealings with nature. And we can learn to listen to others, instead of naturally ignoring and humiliating them. Such a renewed non-eurocentric and ecological humanism and democratic thinking must be developed, honestly but also more modestly than we are used to. The book ‘humanism in turbulent times’ gives building blocks for this new recruiting story.

Knowledge of the sectarian phenomenon is patchy and extremely limited in police and legal circles. Thus, the exchange of information and coordination of criminal investigations is often lacking, which is compounded by the lack of people and resources.

This Cahier highlights several dimensions of sectarian movements. In addition to a thorough phenomenon analysis, it asks whether criminal enforcement is effective. Would it not be better to focus on an administrative joining of forces and on prevention through education and assistance? Other types of legal interventions of a civil, fiscal or social law nature possess potential. However, enforcement efforts are lagging behind, as the cult landscape evolves rapidly and adapts rather flexibly to changed social circumstances. This threatens to leave victims out in the cold. Experts and social workers are sounding the alarm through the media, but the challenges are not diminished. This Cahier 60 has been compiled under the editorship of experts Philippe De Baets, Janine Janssen, Anton van Wijk and Johan Braeckman.
