Regional Social Sciences Summer University “Tam Đao Summer School Week” (Viet Nam) July 2011.
The Viet Nam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS), Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), Nantes University, École française d’Extrême-Orient (ÉFEO) and Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) have decided to hold a social sciences summer university called “Tam Đảo Summer School Week” as part of a partnership agreement for the period 2010-2013.
The objectives are to develop multidisciplinary training of an excellent standard, to create a policy discussion platform and to attract a large academic and non-academic audience from the entire Southeast Asian region.
This book is a verbatim transcription of the presentations and debates during the plenary sessions and workshops on the issue of differentiation and social inequalities, with a particular focus on questions of gender and ethnicity.
Four main axes of reflection were highlighted in thematic workshops:
- ethnic and gender discrimination: measurement and methods of breaking down data;
- biographies: from quantitative survey to analysis;
- construction and management of ethnicities in Southeast Asia;
- field study methods in socio-economics and in anthropology.
