In this work, the authors give a thorough study of Hurwitz stacks and associated Hurwitz moduli spaces, both in the Galois and the non- Galois case, with particular attention to correspondances between these moduli spaces. They compare their construction to those proposed by Abramovich-Corti-Vistoli, Harris-Mumford, and Mochizuki-Wewers. They apply their results to revisit some classical examples, particularly the stacks of stable curves equipped with an arbitrary level structure, and the stacks of tamely ramified cyclic covers. In a second part they exhibit some tautological bundles and cohomology classes naturally living on Hurwitz stacks, and give some universal relations, in particular a higher analogue of the Riemann-Hurwitz formula, between these classes. Applications are given to the stack of cyclic covers of the projective line, with special attention to Cornalba-Harris type relations and to cyclic, in particular hyperelliptic Hodge integrals.
