Steering committee & the team

28 November 2012


The Steering and Strategic Foresight Committee

A place of discussion, exchange and brainstorming, the steering and prospective committee functions as a research seminar and meets on a semi-annual basis.

Diverse in its multi-disciplinarity, the committee is a reflection of the Forum’s unique place at the crossroads of research, politics and artistic creation. It considers a multitude of viewpoints and promotes original comparisons, allowing for an understanding of mobility from various perspectives (social, political, anthropological and economic) and new keys for understanding.
