Contemporary political issues A

Are we living in a "risk society" ? To answer that question, we will analyze the various social processes (from the invention of probabilities to the rise of insurance companies, from the securing policies to the victims' mobilisations) that contribute to the emergence of risk.

Contemporary political issues B

The aim of this course is to understand these recurrent and disruptive social phenomena that constitute scandals, affairs and controversies, which have in common to be made of mobilisations.
