Available in France and abroad, this review was established in 1960 by Jean Maitron, born of a symposium on the topic of the militant worker. Thus, Mouvement Social is published by the association by the same name, a collaboration between the CNRS and the Centre d’histoire sociale du XXe siècle (formerly the Center of Historical Research on Social Mouvements and Unions at the Sorbonne).
Mouvement Social promotes social history and is enriched by diverse contributions. With articles on economy, sociology, anthropology, demography, political science, and law, this journal finds parallels between disciplines. The review welcomes work from various locations and cultures. Its focus is upon the contemporary world (19th, 20th, and 21st centuries). Mouvement Social also presents debates in its “Controverses” section, allowing for the expression of scientific approaches and various historiographical standpoints.
