Motion from the Société d’Anthropologie de Paris on the Research Programming Law


The SAP has officially tabled its opposition to the enactment of the French Research Programming Law (LPR), in particular through the motion carried by electronic ballot during the Annual General Meeting on 30 January 2020 (116 for, 2 against, 1 abstention).
The LPR has now been passed by the French Parliament, but the SAP continues, through its journal, to contest its multiple deleterious effects.

The BMSAP is a member of the revues en lutte collective federating journals opposed to the LPR. In their parliamentary meeting on 13 November 2020, they tabled the following motion:

"The LPR, which has been passed by the Upper and Lower House (even though the government does not have a majority in the Upper House) despite the opinions of the Economic and Social Council and the High Council for Equality, profoundly modifies the orientations of French research and higher education institutions towards increasing subordination of these institutions and their jurisdictions to political power, by stripping them of their independence.

This Parliament of 158 journals denounces the LPR law, underlines the absence of consultation and the brutal means used by the government to pass the law (fast-tracked procedure during the spring and autumn recesses), calls on the future candidates for the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections to commit to consultations with the ESR in order to rewrite a law that will be of benefit to all and will liberate research and higher education from their entrapment in the hyper-competitiveness to which they are condemned by the law as it stands."
