Translated title of the contribution: Reorganization of ends of careers: between reconfiguration of social time and normative transformations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The aim of this paper is to understand the transformations of current temporalities through the end of career. We will show how the development of specific legal devices of reduction of working time in Belgium transforms the experiences of aging workers in and out of work, through a reorganization of social time and life course. For this we will use the example of the end of careers.This article is based on the analysis of 491 surveys collected in two contrasting areas of activity and 42 semi-structured interviews with recipients of time credit. These data allow us to rethink today's frames focusing on two elements: the management of the end of careers and the articulation of social times of a specific cohort.
