Chair in Contemporary French Studies (CEFC)

The Chair in Contemporary French Studies aims to promote scientific research, graduate studies and the dissemination of knowledge of contemporary France.

Conferences and various activities organized in tandem with the Chair enable all who are interested (government representatives, business people, civil society groups) to gain greater understanding of contemporary French reality, and to increase France’s visibility.

CEFC receives researchers and professors from the disciplines of anthropology, law, comparative literature, philosophy, political science and international relations, economics, educational science, and sociology.

CEFC is a CÉRIUM's Unit.
