Organisée dans le cadre du programme de recherche Challenge, cette journée de conférence sera l'occasion, pour les 23 partenaires européens du programme, de présenter l'avancement de leurs recherches. Elle rassemblera, au sein de 8 workshops aux thématiques à la fois distinctes et complémentaires, des intervenants issus de sphères différentes (universitaires, membres d'ONGs, hauts resopnsables des institutions nationales et européennes, praticiens de la sécurité...). Elle vise ainsi à éclairer, depuis une perspective résolument transdisciplinaire, les transformations contemporaines de l'Etat moderne pour reposer la question des pratiques illibérales des régimes libéraux.
