Research Contracts to which CIST Contributes

ANR-DFG Imageun – In the Mirror of the European Neighbourhood (Policy). Mapping Macro-Regional Imaginations (2020-2024)

The aim of this Franco-German research project is to analyse the specifically geographical dimension of the imaginaries that drive regional integration in this part of the world. By combining the analysis of textual and iconographic corpora, the aim is to identify and study the regions of the world to which the populations of five countries feel they belong: Germany, France, Turkey, Tunisia and the United Kingdom. By distancing ourselves from a Eurocentric posture, which would consider above all these regional imaginaries through the prism of "Europe" alone, or even the EU, the aim of this work is to analyse these imaginaries, as they appear in these countries in their diversity, without any a priori limits or scales and through the cross-analysis of three different types of discourse: that obtained through surveys of political decision-makers, undergraduate students and through the analysis of media corpuses.


Achieved Contracts

H2020 Odycceus – Dynamiques de l’opinion et conflits culturels en Europe (2017-2021)

Social media and the digitisation of news and discussion fora are having far-reaching effects on the way individuals and communities communicate, organize, and express themselves. Can the information circulating on these platforms be tapped to better understand and analyze the enormous problems facing our contemporary society? Could this help us to better monitor the growing number of social crises due to cultural differences and diverging world-views? Would this facilitate early detection and perhaps even ways to resolve conflicts before they lead to violence?
The H2020 Odycceus project answers all these questions in the affirmative. It proposes to develop the conceptual foundations, the methodologies and the tools able to make these ambitious visions operational and to demonstrate their operational character over a wide range of case studies.

GlocalMap – Hiérarchisation, délimitation et identification des échelles territoriales (2017-2019)

The GlocalMap survey – Hiérarchisation, délimitation et identification des échelles territoriales – got selected in 2015 as part of a DIME Quanti call for projects (internet mobile ELIPSS panel).
Carried by the CIST, it aims to propose a first snapshot of the situation of the perceptions of territorial levels on the French scale.

OTMA – Observatoire des transformations du monde arabe – 2013-2017

Cet observatoire a pour objectif de mutualiser les travaux et les données sur le monde arabe post-révolutionnaire, d’élaborer des « marqueurs » du changement dans une zone qui connaît des transformations profondes, et de mettre en place des instruments d’observation, reproductibles et comparables dans le temps et dans l’espace.

Politiques de la terre à l’épreuve de l’anthropocène (SPC) – 2016 & 2017

The CIST has participated on several occasions, notably through research conducted within the framework of the ANR Corpus Géomédia project, in the interdisciplinary research programme launched by the COMUE Sorbonne Paris Cité.

ANR Corpus Géomédia – Observatoire des flux médiatiques internationaux – 2013-2016

L’objectif de l’ANR Corpus Géomédia est de mettre en place un outil pour capter les flux RSS concernant l’actualité internationale d’une centaine de journaux dans le monde (francophones, anglophones et hispanophones) puis de répondre à plusieurs questions de recherche : qu’est-ce qu’un événement ? comment expliquer les sous ou sur-représentations de certains espaces ou acteurs ? peut-on modéliser une circulation de l’information à l’échelle globale ?

Integrated Territorial Analysis of the Neighbourhood (ITAN) 2012-2014

Ce projet sur les régions voisines de l’Europe (du Maroc à la Russie) s’appuie sur 3 autres partenaires européens et un réseau d’experts locaux. Il est financé dans le cadre de l’Observatoire en réseau de l’aménagement du territoire européen (ESPON-ORATE Programme).

Étude de faisabilité sur des outils analytiques basés sur les mégadonnées
Feasibility study on analytical tools based on Big Data project – 2014

This project aims to provide specialized expertise on megadata, especially on web 2.0 (O’Reilly, 2005), linked to territorial data and information. After identifying the data sets available, a concrete, operational methodology will be proposed to process them with more traditional territorial data sets. Lastly, the project will make recommendations on processing this type of data.

Soft data pour les politiques publiques de la ville (PEPS) 2014

This project explores the significance and role of soft data in making public decisions regarding town planning and management. Given the abundant data, the project will make a state of the art of existing data and develop a shared debate on methodological questions (“digital methods”) and theoretical issues (relationship between the digital and the physical) linked to using these data in urban policies.
