Synapsis: An interview with Didier Fassin

The online Spanish-language publication Synapsis has published an interview with NOMIS Distinguished Scientist Awardee Didier Fassin about his 10-year ethnography of the French state, in which he conducted fieldwork on police, justice and prison. The article, “Entrevista a Didier Fassin, autor del libro ‘La fuerza del orden’,” was originally published in Spanish.

NOMIS is supporting Fassin’s project, Crisis: A Global Inquiry into the Contemporary Moment. Fassin is the James D. Wolfensohn Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, United States.
