La démocratie de l'entre-soi
An increasing divide between the people and the elites, social and sexualised inequalities, the weakness of participative democracy, the rejection of the European project in favour of nationalism, the primacy of intimacy in the construction of political involvement and civic connections, uncertainties about the socialism and liberalism of tomorrow…
In this book, a team of researchers from CEVIPOF asks what all these signals tell us about the evolution of democracy in France.
They suggest that what is "common" is no longer based on what is public, but on what is private. That politics is now evolving in communitarian spaces of all kinds, family, religious denominations, political parties, oligarchies… That this confusion in repertoires is met with a social fragmentation that is widely accepted, in spite of the celebrations of republicanism and calls for national unity.
This is the basis for the elaboration of a democracy of private interests, which breaks with the principle of separation between public and private space that has been the foundation for democracy since the French and American revolutions.

Les non-frères au pays de l'égalitéOur Non-Brothers in the Land of Equality
Does France care more about fraternity than equality? Réjane Sénac analyses how the boundaries between brothers and non-brothers — whether the latter are women, non-binary, or non-white — have been repeatedly redrawn instead of disappearing altogether.

Gender, Parity, Diversity
What do contemporary uses of parity and diversity, as well as controversies surrounding the so-called "gender theory", say about the French principle of equality? How do they help us to understand the persistence of economic and social inequalities despite equality being enshrined in the law?
