CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


Founded in 1907 by the Jesuits and published by the Centre de recherche et d’action sociales (Ceras), Revue Projet intends to help the greatest number of people to understand the world, but also to reinvent it through debates and the intersecting of field action, academic reflection, and the search for meaning.

Revue Projet provides a forum for debate about social and political issues dealt with too little or only partially elsewhere. The “Current Debate” (6 themes per year) are identified and informed by our socially committed partners, the researchers of our Reading Committee, and the Ceras team. One section welcomes book and documentary film reviews.

Revue Projet is published in both paper and digital form, and addresses concerns with regard to the condition of the most vulnerable, the future of the planet, the vitality of the democratic system, and social and political stability in France, Europe, and throughout the world. Revue Projet intends to be both a rigorous and an accessible place of exchange, hence the importance given to the readability of articles and the option for free access to recent content at: This website is updated continuously, whereas the paper version of Revue Projet is published every two months (6 issues per year plus one special issue).
