Research Centre on Public Policy and Social Development (CPDS)

CPDS studies the links and interactions between public policy and social development not only in Quebec and Canada, but in a comparative and international perspective as well.

The Centre brings together professor-researchers from the departments of political science and sociology, as well as scholars from related disciplines, from the University of Montreal and other Quebec and Canadian institutions.

Research Areas:

  • Public and institutional policies
  • Issues surrounding social development and social movements
  • Dynamics associated with globalization and multi-level governance

CPDS is an affiliated unit to CÉRIUM.
