French and transnational philanthropy
In a context where most of the research conducted on philanthropy is focused on the United States, it was crucial that the Philanthropy Chair conduct work to deepen our knowledge of this phenomenon in France.
What are the origins of philanthropy in France? How has it evolved and what are its characteristics today? How does this philanthropic tradition relate to others, particularly the American tradition?
This project aims to explore the specificities of French philanthropy. It also analyzes transnational philanthropy, notably through the analysis of the financing of French cultural institutions by wealthy American philanthropists.
