The "Globalization and Sustainable Development" (GSD) was developed in large part thanks to financing from the European R&D project called LOGOS (2006-2009). This portal gives users access to around 680 hours of online video: interviews with researchers, conferences and scholarly seminars, special reports, and documentaries. It provides access to audiovisual recordings made with researchers, professors, specialists and professionals working on the issue of development from the standpoint of how it is affecting the various segments of modern society.
The GSD Portal is part of the Audiovisual Research Archives Program (ARA) led by the Cognitive Semiotics and New Medias Team (ESCoM) at the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme (FMSH).
