Is God back in the organisation of the world and the daily life of populations? Delphine Allès, professor of political science and director of the international relations department at the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (Inalco), will be the guest of the Boghossian Foundation during a conference moderated by Gaïdz Minassian.
