War in Ukraine and Exile

A review by Pierre Maunaury-Lecerf, intern at CEFRES

A conference organized by Ronan Hervouet, Ekaterina Pierson-Lyzhina, Tatyana Shukan within the research project BIELEXIL.

The full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army provoked an unprecedented exodus of millions of Ukrainians, as well as more limited migration flows from Russia and Belarus. Whereas none of these are entirely new phenomena, the conflict is much intensifying already existing flows. On May 24th and 25th, the CEFRES hosted a scientific workshop dedicated to the study of exile in this new context. Coming from various research projects, academic backgrounds and research fields, participants aimed at connecting their first fieldworks, results and hypotheses after one year of research following February 24th 2022.

Polish Diaspora in France 1918–2018

Polish Diaspora in France 1918-2018. State of the Art and New Perspectives (Warsaw, 27–28 February 2018)

Compte rendu par Florence Vychytil-Baudoux

A scientific conference dedicated to the Polish “diaspora” in France was held in Warsaw on February 27th and 28th, 2018. It was organised by the Centre de Civilisation Française et d’Etudes Francophones (OKF, University of Warsaw), in collaboration with the Centre of Migration Research (University of Warsaw) and the Centre de Civilisation Polonaise (CCP – Paris-Sorbonne University). A tribute to historian Janine Ponty (1930-2017), a pioneer historian on interwar Polish migrants in France, the conference stemmed from the desire to bring together researchers so to review the current state of knowledge, sketch out research perspectives and launch a research network on the topic of Poles in France.

C. Zalc : Dénaturalisés (couv.]

S’il est communément admis que 15 154 personnes furent “dénaturalisées” sous le gouvernement de Vichy, la loi du 22 juillet 1940 qui prévoyait “la révision de toutes les acquisitions de nationalité française intervenues depuis la promulgation de la loi du 10 août 1927” (49) aurait pu concerner près d’un million de personnes. Parce qu’elles avaient fait l’objet d’un dossier, c’est sur les naturalisations par décret (environ 650 000 personnes) que l’administration se concentra.
