Discriminations and Social Inequalities Research Group
Research on discrimination has experienced a particular growth in France since the early 2000s. Empirical studies attest to the magnitude of unequal treatment on the basis of sex, origin, religion, skin color, sexual orientation, disability, etc. and in different contexts of social interactions (labor market, housing market, schooling, administration, police, justice, etc.).
This research group concentrates on these issues with the objective of contributing to public debate by evaluating the extent and development of discrimination in France and analysing the challenges this poses to policy action in the fight against social inequalities.
