Discussion Paper Series is a collection of informal documents that present unpolished results of research or analysis in the field of humanities. They are circulated to encourage discussions and comments as tangible outputs of works by researchers affiliated to the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS. Since January 2018, the Discussion Papers are submitted to a peer review system ensuring accurateness and academic excellence.


The main themes of FFJ are:

  • Diversity of capitalisms and institutional changes
  • New geopolitical reordering in a changing world (Africa-Asia)
  • Thinking innovation through interactions between sciences, culture and society
  • Firms and industries
  • Inequalities and social policies
