PLURIEL General Assembly

Pluriel’s general assembly, bringing together the coordination committee and the referents of research groups, will be held via videoconference on January 15 2021.

The agenda sees the election of the new coordination committee, the review of current projects, the organization of the “Islam and otherness” congress as well as the preparation of the next congress.

Due to the health situation and travel restrictions, we decided to organise this GA by videoconference.

L’assemblée générale de Pluriel, réunissant le comité de coordination et les référents de groupes de recherche, se tiendra en visioconférence le vendredi 15 janvier 2021.

L’ordre du jour voit l’élection du nouveau comité de coordination, la revue des projets en cours, l’organisation du congrès “islam et altérité” ainsi que l’élaboration du congrès suivant.

La situation sanitaire et les restrictions de déplacements nous poussent à organiser cette AG en visioconférence.
