About the Centre

Created at the end of 2001, the Centre de recherche en science politique (CReSPo) has developed and diversified its areas of research since its inception, with the arrival of an increasing number of new researchers, notably on F.R.S.-FNRS and FRESH mandates, and thanks to the FSR. Initially specialized in the analysis of public action, CReSPo is now recognized for the quality of its work in various fields: democracy and the social economy, security policies, immigration and border issues in Europe, international environmental negotiations, peace policies in Africa, and certain issues related to gender equality. This report provides an overview of the research activities carried out by CReSPo members between December 1, 2021 and November 30, 2022 that fall within the six research axes currently defined within the center. The CReSPo is currently (since January 1, 2021 and for a period of 3 years) directed by Amandine ORSINI and composed of about thirty members. It regularly organizes seminars and conferences, and participates in several Belgian and international research networks. Among other things, the year 2021-2022 has been marked by the resumption of the CReSPo seminars, both online and in person, as well as by the institutionalization of the doctoral training seminars "Les cuisines de la thèse" created by the doctoral students of the center.
