The Collège d'études mondiales
A new way of reflecting in phase with the great changes that characterize the contemporary world
The Collège d'études mondiales (School of World Studies), created in 2011 by sociologist Michel Wieviorka, is an academic centre for the development of projects by international researchers in a firmly multidisciplinary environment.
3 research axis
It promotes new ways of thinking and working: research conducted by the philosopher and the economist, the doctor and the political analyst, the literary expert and the anthropologist all provide mutual stimulation for understanding the changes at play in the contemporary world.
The School's scientific activity is organised around three key areas:
- New norms and institutions,
- Rethinking social justice,
- Subjectivities: production and knowledge.
The School programme is composed of chairs, initiatives (programme incubation) and research seminars.
18 research chairs with 10 chair holders affiliated with foreign institutions (such as the universities of Princeton, Southern California, Columbia, Montreal, and Diego Portales, the New School for Social Research, the London School of Economics and Political Science, and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies of Geneva)
25 research associates (universities of Louvain, Stockholm, Kent, Cambridge, Turin, Laval - Canada, and also the universities of Lorraine, Panthéon-Sorbonne, Saint-Denis, Aix-Marseille, IEP Grenoble, and EHESS)
