Book an intervention by lsabelle Boni-Claverie. The director and author of TOO BLACK TO BE FRENCH is today a reference on questions of coexistence, both internationally and in France.

She will share the fruits of years of research and exchanges with academics, scientific experts and activists on the ground. She is a choice interlocuter for speaking about the sensitive subjects of racism, discrimination and inequality, in respect of all. Keynote speeches, seminars, conferences, round tables: whatever the format your event takes, we will offer a tailor-made response to suit the interests of your organization.



Community tensions are worsening in France, fed by prejudice and fears. It is more urgent than ever to appease conflicts and establish cooperation between communities.
