The Caribbean School Climate Observatory (CSCO) is a transversal research program which main scientific partner is the Centre de Recherches et de Ressources en Education et Formation (CRREF).
On one hand, the Observatory aims at gathering a federation of researchers who study the phenomenon of violence in school and school climate (on diverse aspects: victimization, violence prevention, co-education, school life quality, inclusion, school justice, partnership practices, team strategy), especially within the Caribbean region. On the other hand, the aim is to connect researchers and professionals from the educative world to have a shared diagnosis on these questions. Finally, this networking aims at boosting the scientific production (and experimentation) in this field of research.
It is directed by Pierre-Olivier Weiss, Attaché Temporaire d’Enseignement et de Recherche at the University of the French West Indies (School of Education), Phd in sociology, attached to the Research and Resource Centre for Education and Training-CRREF-EA-4538 and at Mediterranean Laboratory of Sociology (LAMES-UMR-7305).
