By Nicole Neatby

Studies of younger activists have tended to target the interval of the Sixties. Neatby indicates us that the formative years of the sixties weren't the one ones to tell apart themselves via their social activism and idealism - scholars of the Duplessis period have been both conscientious and idealistic approximately short of reform and felt a robust feel of social accountability in the direction of the area at huge. at the Quebec scene they freely criticized non secular professionals and more and more observed themselves as brokers of reform in academic concerns. Their activism led them to take strike motion and to arrange a sit-in. Neatby exhibits that scholars, like such a lot of different social teams within the Quebec of the Nineteen Fifties, have been faraway from quiescent throughout the so-called "Grande noirceur." The attitudes of those activists supply a historical past for realizing pupil calls for at the present time, comparable to academic reform, loose entry to universities, and the abolition of pupil fees.

Cependant, du moment qu'il est question d'action etudiante sur la scene internationale, les reactions communes et les consensus donnent lieu a une pluralite de perspectives. Les leaders etudiants ne s'entendent pas tous quand il s'agit d'identifier les causes profondes des tensions internationales, ni lorsque vient le temps de determiner les meilleurs facons d'y remedier. On constate qu'ils adherent d'une facon generale a deux tendances qui se caracterisent par des valeurs et des priorites distinctes.

On donne aussi 1'impression que 1'etudiant a besoin d'un plus age que lui pour dialoguer en son nom avec les autorites. De toute evidence, l'administrateur definit lui-meme son role en fonction d'une conception de 1'etudiant carabin. Ainsi, M. Fernand Delhaes, qui occupe ce poste depuis 1941, considere que l'administrateur permet aux leaders etudiants d'accomplir leur tache sans toutefois cumuler des responsabilites non conformes a leur statut. II rappelle qu'« apres tout, il ne faut jamais oublier que le president et les membres de 1'executif sont des etudiants et qu'il serait injuste de leur laisser 1'entiere responsabilite d'une association aussi importante financierement que I'AGEUM.

Nous les etudiants, nous voulons du concret, du vrai divertissement carabin ». II exige qu'ils se distinguent de la masse etudiante: « ceux qui occupent ces postes la sont supposes [sic] etre notre elite et avoir plus d'initiative, plus d'idees que nous21 ». Pour attirer des candidats, on vante les merites de la participation en presentant 1'association comme une ecole de formation complementaire qui pourvoira 1'etudiant d'attributs juges indispensables pour reussir dans le monde adulte. Ainsi, devenir membre de 1'executif de 1'association peut repondre a des ambitions de carriere a long terme.
