Mwin-Mâalou Frédéric Dabire

Mwin-Mâalou Frédéric Dabire studied philosophy of science and science of education at the University Joseph Ki-Zerbo (Burkina Faso) and philosophy and history of ideas at the University of Côte d'Azur (Nice, France).

He continued his academic training at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne where he obtained a master's degree in political science and where he currently is pursuing a doctoral cycle (second year of his thesis at Institut d'Histoire et de Philosophie des Sciences et Techniques under the supervision of professors Pierre Wagner and Sandra Laugier).

His topic is the problem of demarcation in epistemology, i.e. the question of the border between science and non-science. This interdisciplinarity, which characterises his intellectual training, has always enabled him to position himself in relation to the greatest challenge of his generation, the safeguarding of the planet and hence the survival of humanity.

This is why he is interested in the philosophical resources and more generally in the human and social sciences, which can be mobilised to address this ecological crisis.

Societal Aspects of Climate Change
Which global changes are needed to achieve the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement? How can policy stimulate these transitions in the most effective and efficient way, given the diversity of economic, political and cultural contexts of different countries around the world, and given the enormous global investments needed for these Paris goals?

For complex challenges an interdisciplinary synthesis can be more important and more relevant than technical and disciplinary expertise. Global problems require an international synthesis.
