New Cogito Dossier : Gender Equity

  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

It is not the current health crisis that is making us realise the precariousness of women and domestic violence. These problems – like so many others – have long been known. This issue addresses areas that are rarely analysed: the negative consequences of some purportedly egalitarian and scientific policies, the geopolitics of gender, the impact of climate change on women’s lives, the paradoxical aspects of marital relations, and factors of persistence in educational and professional inequalities.

The contribution of social sciences is more than ever essential for citizens, communities and leaders facing the crisis caused by Covid-19. The issues it touches upon - economic, social and health policy, organisation of public authorities and companies, trust in governmental bodies, inequalities, globalisation ... - are familiar to the academic community of Sciences Po. Through their analyses and new research projects, our researchers are responding today to the fundamental need to grasp the political, economic and social impacts of this pandemic in the short and long term.

Governing Finance - Dossier

  • Cogito 8 – Governing Finance. Copyrights: Sciences PoCogito 8 – Governing Finance. Copyrights: Sciences Po

In an issue devoted to the challenging governance of finance, our researchers might have dwelled on reviewing and analyzing the financial crises in recent memory, or even looked into the future with a lot of frightening forecasts. But since the interest of research lies in going off the beaten track, here they present their most recent research, focused on overlooked or forgotten subjects, and shed light on the obscurities of an often misunderstood world.
Happy reading!
