Founded in 1998 by Gilbert Wasserman, the journal Mouvements feeds into the social, cultural, and political debate from a firmly leftist point of view. Behind the journal is a team with a diversity of socioprofessional and political backgrounds. Mouvements closely examines the changes taking place in French society; topics as diverse as workforce flexibility, education, the changes in Eastern Europe, expertise, family, an alternative to social liberalism, hip hop, and humanitarian aid have formed the basis for thematic dossiers containing in-depth, original articles.
Mouvements works in its own way toward a revival of leftist thinking, promoting a resolutely reform-based approach based on a radical end goal of transforming society—an approach that constantly brings together resistance and planning, protest and alternatives, audacity and transformative realism.
Apart from a thematic dossier, each issue contains various sections, allowing the big political, cultural, and societal issues of the day to be addressed, including an in-depth interview with a prominent scholar, along with an overview of current debates in the various EU Member States. Finally, each issue also contains reviews of the latest book publications.
Mouvements is published with support from the Centre national du livre.
