Research projects:

The CERAPS focuses on current political transformations in five areas :  
▪ The construction of supranational legal orders
▪ Citizens’ political involvement
▪ The modes of government and legitimation of democratic polities
▪ Political organizations (political parties, trade unions, NGOs, associations, etc.)
▪ The elaboration and diffusion of legal norms.  

The Center research agenda for 2010-2015 is organized around three projects which raise fundamental questions and speak to the relevant international literature:
- Legal and political transnational spaces at the European and global level (coordinated by Olivier Nay and Stéphane Bracq)
- The current transformations of the state and democracy in Europe (coordinated by Jean-Jacques Lavenue and Alexis Spire)
- Political participation: voting, mobilizing and getting involved (coordinated by Annie Laurent et Jean-Gabriel Contamin)
