L'Etat, le promoteur et le maire
La fabrication des politiques du logement
The state, the investor and the Mayor
Manufacturing housing policy
Julie Pollard

Sarah Gensburger, Sandrine Lefranc
To understand the reasons for the failure of memory policies and shed light on the public debate, this book return to the sources of these memory policies and, without political bias or taking sides, ask – where do these policies come from? What do they really do? How can we make them work effectively?



La Démocratie par le droit

Democracy through law
Poland 1989-2016
Jérome Heurtaux
