Since its creation as an experimental center in Vincennes in 1969 and its move to Saint-Denis in 1980, Université Paris 8 has become a central teaching and research center in the Île-de-France region in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
CartONG is supporting the CliMigra_Form program, which is deployed through a partnership between the University of Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint Denis (France) and the University of Paris Khartoum (Sudan). This project aims to develop training in participatory and citizen inquiry on two topics specific to the Sudanese context: climate and migrations.
In 2020, CartONG conducted 2 remote training sessions for a team of French and Sudanese social science and geography researchers and students, in order to help them understand how participatory and subjective mapping methodologies may be used as a way to collect both qualitative and quantitative data during a field research. Additional guidance on participatory and subjective mapping methodologies will be provided in 2021.
