This report presents the result of reflections produced on this occasion from a triple ambition
The first is to inform public decision by the contributions of more recent research. It is an essential dimension. Adaptation of cohesion
social transformations that we just mentioned can be realized from aboveground diagnostics. Teams and those of CAS DGCS thus ensured that each seminar is based on the contribution of academics. More than a hundred experts and speakers at our various meetings.
The second aim is to highlight examples of good practices. On each theme, we have done work identifying local innovations. Our belief is that the power of example - when it is evaluated - helps remove institutional barriers that may face economic and social cohesion policies. Identify new methods emerging actors, institutional arrangements originals: such was the motto of our teams.
The third goal, in line with previous, focused on the international dimension of our work. diagnosis halftone that we have established the state of social cohesion is not just France.
