The Law and social transformations department aims to organise and drive research in law and political science in Bordeaux.
The department’s positioning is both thematic and disciplinary.
Thematically speaking, the department is built on the observation that the many and varied social developments currently occurring require us to rethink our legal and political models. As a result, a general scientific approach allowing for better support and understanding of these social transformations needs to be implemented.
On a disciplinary level, the Law and Social Transformations department includes all dimensions of research in law, legal history and political science (public, private, internal, international and European, comparative). Researchers can therefore mobilise the entire disciplinary field in order to capture all the normative manifestations of social transformations and enhance the value of legal and political methods.
