Jean Viard


Jean Viard is a sociologist and CNRS research director at Sciences-Po.

“We have entered a society of actors, masters and owners of their own time and schedule.”

After graduate studies in economics and then sociology, he was always interested in the problems raised by our society.


Social conflict has always been omnipresent, but it tries to regulate it by having contributed and always supported the «35 hours».


This man with always relevant theses and reflections, is a person attracting the lust of the media, journalists and politicians.

Jean Viard is the author of many books including :  Le Sacre du temps libre: la société des 35 heures, La République du 5 mai, Le Nouvel Age du politique, Eloge de la mobilité and La page blanche: Un immense besoin de radicalité.
