Following the attacks of 2015, the Fondation Maison des sciences de l'homme set up the Platform on Violence and Exiting Violence, which includes two Observatories, the first devoted to the phenomena of radicalisation, the second to the prevention and exit from violence. The international seminar on Violence and Exiting Violence, shared by both Observatories, offers a demanding intellectual experience and is a meeting place between the worlds of research and action.
