English abstract

No one would argue that nowadays research in social sciences is marked by internationalization. We see proliferating everywhere European research calls or international projects according to predefined thematic and axes and multiple co-publications abroad resulting from these calls. Calls for European and international projects provide funding for developing countries for scientific research, but push them to work on a local topic that is not always within their priorities. Are we faced to a social science research targeted and controlled to the detriment of the interest of the researcher? Isn’t research a result of a personal interest and motivation for a given topic? The current research funding methods must not promote internationalization at the expense of the localization of the search. This can only limit the researcher in his choice of research areas of theoretical references and in its methodology. As part of our research, we will deal with the paradigm of the national society and its alternatives and then address the expansion and increasing calls for European and international projects in social sciences citing the advantages and disadvantages. Finally, we will address the issue from a scientific experience.
