Presentation of the Research
Headed by Florence Haegel since September 2016, Sciences Po’s Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics (UMR 8239) is a multidisciplinary research unit specialising in comparative political analysis. Reflecting on social science research methods is an important part of the work done there.
The key research domains are grouped around four main overlapping research axes:
- the transformations of capitalism
- the state as a producer of public policies
- Cities, borders and (im)mobilities
- Strains on democratic representation
