The ENS-AXA Research Chair in the Geopolitics of Risk is a 10-year research programme (2015-2025) that seeks to join a range of disciplinary approach to the politics of uncertainty in the global age. It unifies research in political science, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, and law in order to re-visit the challenge of finding security in an age of the politics of uncertainty.

The Chair is hosted by the Department of Geography and Territories of the Ecole Normale Supérieure.
