    Regions and Regionalism in Canada: constructing and managing political, social and cultural territory

    In a contemporary age in which “think globally, act locally” has become a slogan, has the propensity to favour local initiatives resulted in shifting loyalties, has it modified the level at which citizens feel their strongest sense of belonging? Has it altered conceptions of citizenship? Has it had any impact on the locus of power? Which conceptual tools are most pertinent when trying to apprehend the social, cultural and political dimensions of regions and regionalism in Canada? How has the territorial notion of “region”, which comes out of the European tradition, been articulated to adapt to the Canadian context, especially with regard to the question of belonging (communities, nations, etc)?

    Risk, Violence, and Collective Agency

    This colloquium will assemble a multidisciplinary group of literary scholars, philosophers, sociologists and historians to explore the interrelation of concepts of risk, violence, and collective agency. Participants will do so in a number of literary, historical and geographical contexts, such as Rimbaud’s or Zola’s Paris, Dostoevsky’s or Mandelstam’s Russia, or the 16th century French religious wars and the Armenian genocide. Conversations will engage the critical and philosophical work of Hobbes, Goethe, Arendt, Berlin, Derrida or Balibar. What is at stake is how theories of risk and collective agency might reveal new ways of understanding not only acts of violence or massacre, nihilism and collective political affect, collective will and democracy, or totalitarianism and genocide, but also the complexities of their aesthetic, literary, historiographical or sociological representations.

    How sustainable are India’s Smart Cities?

    Critically assessing the projects and politics underpinning the Smart City Mission

    Faisant suite à une première réunion consacrée à la Smart City Mission en Inde en septembre 2018, l'objectif spécifique de cet atelier international est de se concentrer sur les questions de durabilité sociale et environnementale. Sur la base d'enquêtes sur le terrain, les intervenants évalueront de manière critique les expériences de villes intelligentes au fur et à mesure de leur déroulement. Parmi les questions à discuter figurent les suivantes : Comment l'engagement de l'Inde à l'égard des villes intelligentes se compare-t-il à d'autres cas internationaux ? Dans quelle mesure les projets en Inde s'appuient-ils sur des technologies de pointe ? Comment pouvons-nous caractériser la gouvernance et la politique de l'engagement de l'Inde dans l'urbanisme intelligent ?

    Economics, security and politics

    The Chair of Defense Economics and the Institute for Strategic Research (IRSEM, Paris) organize a workshop on the theme “Economics, Security and Politics”. Throughout this day, we will explore the links between democracy, its construction, public opinions and military actions or conflicts. We will mostly focus on the relationships between citizenship and military actions. The term “citizenship” embraces here elements related to public opinion and the rise of nationalism or populism in modern societies.

    Conference, symposium - Economy

    Predatory state

    This symposium is part of a recent and very dynamic renewal of research on the State in economics involving a critical examination of two dominant postulates of the discipline: 1) the assumption of an apolitical State or a benevolent dictatorship which pursues no private interest maximizing the general interest. 2) The assumption of “soft trade”, i.e. the exclusion of social conflicts, inter-state and intra-state wars in the presence of markets. Our discussions aim to explore how the sovereign, prudential, and providential dimensions of the state can be interpreted if these two assumptions are dropped. What is the place of conflictual power in the genesis and evolution of the rules governing the distribution of wealth and economic, social, and ecological development?

    Work in Ethiopia

    Rationalization, dominance and mobilizations

    Work is neither a subject omitted by the research on the Horn of Africa, however this is nor an object of study in its own right. Scholars generally subordinate analysis of work to analysis of development. On the one hand this concept of development is linked with an optimistic vision which highlights the successes of the developmental State implemented in Ethiopia. On the other hand, development is associated to a pessimistic view of the country, focused on poverty reduction.

    Municipalisation and urban management in Mozambique

    Le Mozambique est encore très largement géré par l'administration de l'État central: il n'y a que 58 municipalités, toutes urbaines. La questionne est donc très politique, puisque toute avancée de la municipalisation permet à l'opposition d'acquérir plus de poids, même si le parti au pouvoir garde le contrôle sur la majorité d'entre elles. Ce colloque international aura lieu une dizaine de jours après la tenue des élections municipales d'octobre 2018, qui seront un test grandeur nature pour les élections présidentielles et législatives de l'année suivante...

    The social responsibility of organisations and companies in French-speaking Africa

    Considering on the one hand, the current global village under construction in which many stakeholders are called to interact towards the realisation of a common destiny and, on the other hand, the concern for the preservation of local ressources, the need for a more concrete implementation emerges from the principle of integration. The objectives of sustainable development (OSD) were thus adopted with the aim, by 2030, to eliminate poverty in all its forms through the promotion of sustainable industrialisation that benefits all, and promotes innovation and research and encourages large companies and transnational corporations to adopt and integrate viable practices. The essential aim of objectives is to create jobs, increase local wealth through gross domestic product (GDP) and more efficient use of ressources through the use of clean, socially inclusive and environmentally friendly technologies and processes.

    “Dependent Capitalism” in Central and Eastern Europe

    Theoretical foundations and diversity of national trajectories

    The transformation of post-socialist countries and their following integration into the European Union have raised new questions about the nature of the economic models emerging from these major institutional changes in Central and Eastern Europe. Would a new family of capitalism, marked by the legacy of the socialist regime, emerge or would post-socialist economies converge towards models of capitalism identified in the literature?
