Series surpervised by Rémi Lefebvre and Marie Saiget.
This series gathers works concerned with the diverse aspects of contemporary politics.
The various spaces studied include territories, arenas and other state, international or local configurations, where politics unfold in their moving and varying forms. The aim is to better understand the different forms of the political discourse, the multiplicity of the spheres involved (actors, methods of governance, "crises"…) and the diversity of militant practices and mobilization patterns.
This series presents itself as a space of reflection on nascent mechanisms, a space questioning the boundaries of politics and encouraging the exploration of untrodden paths—as opposed to more conventional methods (power, elections, government)—in the approach of politics. The series also puts forward comparative studies, so as to better comprehend the major international stakes behind the evolution of political practices. Last but not least, because we think that politics can be better understood when it is confronted with history, sociology, anthropology and other domains such as the legal one, Espaces Politiques promotes interdisciplinary approaches. The series brings together collective works, scientific essays, survey results, etc. of both experienced and young researchers.

Islam is a contentious issue in the French political field. However, avoiding the globalizing frames that prevail in the public sphere, this book shows how islam can embody a resource for the mobilization of actors who rarely do, especially in the French secular context of laïcity.
Comment les partis politiques tiennent leurs militants
Jean-Marie Le Pen's exclusion from the National Front or the management of "slingers" inside of the Socialist Party provoked debates and political disputes. These illustrative cases recall the centrality of partisan indiscipline as a hot topic. They suggest that political parties are not only organizations to which we adhere, but also institutions

Is dialogue at the center of our social life ? Is it today a pillar of our democracy ? A remedy in the conflict, or a rampart against the passions and the violence? What exchanges does it allow between elected representatives and citizens, or between experts and laymen? This book tries to answer these questions using the criticism of the theories..
Amid the abundant literature devoted to the presidential election, no French study focused on the important role played by interest groups and other campaigning groups such as NGOs, charities, unions, trade associations, coalitions or think tanks. During elections, all such groups have a common goal: to try and convince the candidates, especially..
The so-called "Arab Springs"give rise to a number of myths and phantasms, and a lot of texts only consider the surface of movements, with both fascination and exaltation about social networks. But the digital expression of contestation is not sufficient to explain the phenomenon. It is preferable to consider deep reasons moving agents and...
Local citizenship has been much debated all over Europe. In Sweden its legitimacy has proven to be widely recognised due to good quality local governments' institutions implementing welfare programs. Despite privatization and budget cutbacks, local services provision remains of high standard.
