From SamusocialdeParis to SamusocialInternational
The history and creation ofÂ
samusocialÂ are linked to those of its founder, Doctor Xavier Emmanuelli. His experience working with people most at risk, victims of accidents or âvictims of lifeâ brought him to rethink how to deal with major exclusion.
Convinced that extreme exclusion is a problem in all major cities, both in the north and in the south, Dr. Emmanuelli createdÂ
samusocialInternationalÂ in July 1998 to support large cities in the creation of samusocial-type schemes and to accompany their development.
