Institute for Interdisciplinary Research in Sociology, Economics and Political Science

Scientific focuses of the laboratory

The theme of political and social regulation currently tends to constitute the main focus and sphere of the laboratory's work.

Specifically, we have chosen to consider this theme from three perspectives: the first concerns changes in modes of regulation of social relations, in and outside the world of work, and recomposition of identities and associated explosion of new forms of mobilisation and claims to rights.

The second concerns the redefinition of the territories of the social and the political, and of their boundaries, which characterises public action today and which is sometimes covered by the term ""governance"".
The third concerns the production and the uses of the various forms of expertise, categories of thought and classification rights or norms, as ""tools"" of political regulation.
