In France, there is a dual labor market: one with stable jobs heavily protected and the other with precarious employment whose durations are getting shorter and shorter. What is the origin of this contractual dualism and how does it affect the functioning of the French labor market ?

Pluriel et commun
Sociologie d'un monde cosmopolitePlural and shared
Sociology of a cosmopolitan world
How is the individual socialized today, in Rome, Bombay, Lagos or Tokyo?

How is human experience shaped in a world such as this?
Les représentants du personnelStaff Representatives

Les socialistes français et l'économie (1944-1981)
Une histoire économique du politiqueFrench Socialists and the Economy (1944–1981)
An economic history of politics
The criticism being levied is not new. In fact, though it first appeared after the 'defeat' of the "Front populaire", it has consistently returned since: French socialists are said to be economically incompetent. A stereotype? Mathieu Fulla offers an economic history of politics that participates in the current debate within the Left.
