Marguerite Cognet

Marguerite Cognet is Senior Lecturer Paris Diderot

Field of expertise and research interests:

Ethnic relations applied in the field of health.

This field of expertise has led me to develop projects on the following four key areas:

 “Professional insertion methods of immigrants and ethnic/race minorities in health organisations (analysis of professional career paths; study of direct and indirect discrimination on the insertion methods);

 “Ethnic relations in health organisations (analysis of the impact of ethnic identities, possibly intertwined with other singular identities such as gender, on the working relationships between the grades; study of the challenges related to ethnic diversity in terms of personnel management);

 “The health of immigrants and ethnic/race minorities (analysis of the treatment path and interethnic disparities; representation and ethnicisation of infectious diseases);

 “Professional practices in health and social services in interethnic contexts (analysis of representations of ethnic otherness as a determining factor of interventions in health and social work and subsequently the health of users).
