La politique en France et en Europe

La politique en France et en Europe

Politics in France and in Europe

Are politics done differently in France ? The sharp criticisms of political elites and the mounting strength of protest votes over the last several years are proof of a serious representational crisis in France. Whether a sign of decline or maladjustment to globalization, this crisis seems to indicate that nothing is done in France in quite the same way as in other European countries.

But isn't Europe itself a blend of national singularities? One might wonder whether a common basis for values and representations does indeed exist, and whether it is possible to take European integration any further given that cultures and national political practices seem to be so different from one another.

Using the results of the European Social Survey inquiry (winner of the Descartes prize, 2005), a team of political scientists seeks to evaluate French specificity, and to measure to what extent political Europe really exists.

Based on a course taught at CEVIPOF (Centre for Political Research of Sciences Po), this work contains rigorous analyses of politics in France and in Europe, as structured by values, attitudes, demographic and social categories, as well as partisan allegiances. It is aimed equally at students and at anyone with an interest in politics.

Pascal Perrineau is a senior Professor and Head of CEVIPOF (Centre for Political Research at Sciences Po). Luc Rouban is a Research Director at CEVIPOF and is affiliated to the CNRS.

Les droites en fusion
Transformations de l'UMP
A Merger of the Right
Transformations of the UMP
Florence Haegel
A sociological, historical and European approach to the phenomenon of partisanship applied to the Right in France and to the UMP (Union pour un mouvement populaire) since 2002, that will help understanding the actual leadership conflict at the top of UMP.



Destins ordinaires
Identité singulière et mémoire partagée
Ordinary Destinies
Singular Identity and Collective Memory
Florence Haegel, Marie-Claire Lavabre
This work takes an unconventional form. Two stories comprise the plot: one is of a woman from a "hard town", the other from the rural world. Through these tales, the question of the effects of the changes of French society on personal politics is posed.

Un maire à Paris
Mise en scène d'un nouveau rôle politique
A Mayor of Paris
Florence Haegel
Since 1977 Jacques Chirac embodied the new function of the Parisian Mayor. How did he shape this, and how did this alchemy between a political figure, the office of mayor, and a city, operate?...
