Michel Wieviorka presents the main ideas in his new book, "Pour la prochaine gauche" (Robert Laffont, February 2011). His talk focuses on how the French Left can and should draw on the social sciences to articulate a new kind of leftist politics that speaks to the social realities and social expectations of France today. Multiculturalism, affirmative action, the Nation, ethnic statistics, immigrant populations: how can sociological, political and historical analysis inform the ways in which the French Left incorporates these pressing social issues into a coherent political project while reaffirming leftist values?
Michel Wieviorka is a sociologist, professor at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, director of the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme, former president of the International Sociological Association and Compagnon de route of the French Socialist Party.
