Co-organized by Columbia University, Global Center, Paris & CEVIPOF/Sciences Po,Paris :

  • Philip Kitcher, Columbia University in New York
  • Bernard Reber, CEVIPOF/Sciences Po/CNRS

How should the procedures for translating scientific findings into policy be amended so that those policies are more responsive to the needs of decision-makers and of a divided citizenry (from both national and international perspectives)?

How should scientific practice be amended so that descriptive-predictive sciences become more responsive to normative sciences, and vice-versa?

In Support of Fariba Adelkhah

  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

In mid-July, 2019, the arrest and detention of Sciences Po researcher Fariba Adelkhah was made public. At that time, she had been imprisoned for nearly two months. Though she holds both French and Iranian nationalities, she has not - as of July 29, 2019 - benefitted from a French consular visit, as dual citizenship is not recognised in Iran. The Sciences Po faculty published the following message in support of their colleague.

July 15, 2019

We were shocked to learn of the arrest in Iran of our colleague Fariba Adelkhah and her detention for apparently several weeks, with no possibility of contact with the French authorities.

Fariba Adelkhah, a research professor at Sciences Po’s Center for International Research, is an anthropologist and a specialist in Iranian society. She has published numerous books, notably on the question of modernity (Being Modern in Iran, Columbia University Press, 2004). She has also worked on the topic of public space in Afghanistan. Her current research focuses on the Shia clerical institution and she was, for this purpose, carrying out field work in Qom.

The importance and originality of Fariba Adelkhah's works have been acclaimed internationally. We are privileged to have such a distinguished scholar in our academic community at Sciences Po. Her arrest and prolonged detention constitute an infringement of basic human rights and of academic freedom.

We wish to convey to Fariba and her family our warmest support and our strong hope for her quick release.

Denigrated when used to select students in some university programmes, or appreciated as a means to breathe new life into democracy, random draws are controversial. In his book “Le Tirage au sort: Comment l’utiliser" (FR) [The Random Draw: How to Use It], CEVIPOF researcher Gil Delannoi (FR) presents its characteristics and the many ways of implementing it. After outlining the factors determining the quality of a random draw, he calls for its judicious implementation in our institutions. Gil Delannoi is convinced that a well-designed random draw can enrich democracy... read more
