The "Center for Economic Research on Governance, Inequality and Conflict", created on January 1, 2023, will consolidate a strong scientific dynamic that has been underway since 2017 at the ENS de Lyon around research in economics related to governance, equality, information dissemination and conflict resolution. This center for economic research is intended to grow through collaborations at the level of the Lyon site as a whole but also internationally, through the establishment of joint, multi-partner, multi- and interdisciplinary projects.
The center for economic research is structured around three research topics and a transversal methodological platform:
- Equalities and capabilities
- Peace and emancipation
- Digital revolution and citizenship
The transversal methodological platform offers a space for exchange around the tools used by the team members, from data collection to statistical processing and interpretation of results.
The research questions that will be addressed within the framework of the center for economic research come as a counterpoint to the numerous crises that plague modern societies and are crossed by political, social and environmental dimensions. They also have a strong comparative dimension, particularly in terms of temporal and spatial perspectives (synchronic and diachronic). Finally, they are directly linked to public policies, both in their elaboration and evaluation dimensions.
