The aim of the Sociétés plurielles humanities and social-science research programme is to analyze the challenges posed by the diversity facing our societies as a result of the acceleration of globalization processes.
The Plural Societies programme includes three integrated projects:
- CITE: Cohesion and Identities in the Territories of Europe
- World-Cities: Comparative Approaches to Cosmopolitanism and Migration
- Political, Cultural and Religious Flows
Interdisciplinarity, the overlaps between different geographical and cultural areas, and reflections on the theoretical paradigms of plurality form the methodological basis of the programme, which involves researchers from six universities in the Île-de-France region and almost 20 research groups from the Université Sorbonne-Paris-Cité.
The teachers and researchers involved in the Plural Societies programme organize monthly seminars, one-day workshops and international conferences. They also provide online access to some of their research studies on this website and publish the open-access online journal Sociétés plurielles.
