Cosmopolitanism and solidarity

Craig Calhoun

Craig Calhoun - Collège d'études mondiales
Confronting upheavals in the global economy, the prominence of global political conflicts, the global risks created by environmental damage, and the new connections forged through global media and migrations, many recognize the need for renewal of social solidarity. How do we imagine cohabitation and ideally cooperation on large-scales, at long distances, and with deep differences?

Cosmopolitan risk communities

Re-mapping inequality and power in an age of climate change : the emergence of "cosmopolitan" risk communities

Ulrich Beck

Ulrich Beck - Collège d'études mondiales
The aim of this chair is to utilise the idea of ‘methodological cosmopolitanism’ to design a sociological framework for the understanding of climate change. Climate change has been investigated chiefly from the vantage point of the natural sciences and economics (exceptions include Anthony Giddens and John Urry). My concern is to explore the sociological dimension of climate change from two mutually complementary angles:

First, to what extent will climate change be a

Welfare Economics and Social Justice

Welfare Economics and Social Justice

Chaire Marc Fleurbaey

The Chair on Welfare Economics and Social Justice is devoted to the study of ethical issues about society and public policy, with applications to the measurement of well-being , redistributive policy, health policy, and climate change. The main topics in the research program of the chair are the following:
  • the measurement of well-being and social welfare, with the specific ambition of taking account of the preferences, values, and priorities of the populations;
  • rational and fair decisions in the presence of collective risks, with the

Nouvelles technologies et éducation

Nouvelles technologies, éducation et apprentissage

Imma Tubella

Les transformations économiques, politiques et technologiques ainsi que le développement et la diffusion accélérés du savoir dans tous les domaines de l'activité humaine, rendent de plus en plus difficile le monopole de la connaissance. L'avènement des TIC marque une révolution dans la production et diffusion du savoir d'une ampleur équivalente à celle provoquée par l'arrivée de l'écriture et de l'imprimerie.

Écologie, travail et emploi

Reconversion écologique, travail, emploi et politiques sociales

Dominique Méda

Nos sociétés sont confrontées à une possibilité radicalement nouvelle : laisser notre planète devenir inhabitable, à moins de mettre en œuvre les moyens permettant de l’éviter.

Rethinking social justice

Rethinking social justice in a globalizing world

Nancy Fraser

Globalization appears to be changing the way we argue about social justice. Arguments that used to focus chiefly on the question of what is owed as a matter of justice to community members now turn quickly into disputes about who should count as a member and which is the relevant community. Is the nation-state the only legitimate container of social justice? Or are regional and global frames also pertinent? In an epoch when these are live questions, not only the substance of social justice, but also the frame, is in dispute.

Économie du bien-être

Économie du bien-être et de la justice sociale

Chaire Marc Fleurbaey

L’évaluation est à la mode, et concerne non seulement les individus au travail, mais aussi les collectivités, les pays, la planète. Or, dans le domaine de l’évaluation « sociale » ou « sociétale », si une grosse partie des difficultés de l’évaluation tient à l’appréciation de l’état réel des choses ou à la compréhension de l’enchaînement causal des phénomènes, une difficulté non moins essentielle consiste à se donner les bons critères. Deux écueils sont à éviter.
