Three Key Points
Our work is positioned at the intersection of three spheres: knowledge, power, and dissemination. More precisely, we try to confront three problems: the decline in the quality of public debate, the compartmentalization of research, and the strategic inconsistency and lack of substance in public and private decision-making.
This is why our activity is multifaceted, because mobility is necessary to face complexity. We are at once a publisher, a research center, and a think tank.
Our papers and reports transform public policy, institutions, and the perception of major contemporary issues. Our doctrine publications allow us to measure the depth or orient the vision of the main decision-makers of our time. Our scientific journals contribute to opening up the academic world to major contemporary problems by building new research fields or by questioning age-old subjects.
