WasePo Online Webinar on 'Humans and Mobilities'

Waseda University and Sciences Po are entering a new phase of their cooperation by strengthening scientific cooperation. Within the thematic framework of “Humans and Mobilities”, scientific exchanges will build up on research activities in related fields that are developed in both institutions such as studies in borders, migration, labor, climate change, ageing, firms, employment, housing, cities, rural areas, and inequalities issues.
This first WasePo webinar will offer an opportunity for our academic communities to take stock of the impact of the covid-19 crisis and aftermath on their current research.
