An information meeting on Alliance will take place on: February 1st, 2018 at 3 pm - meeting room of the Doctoral School, 3rd floor, 199 boulevard Saint-Germain.

Created in 2002, Alliance is an innovative academic joint-venture between Columbia University and three major French institutions: the École PolytechniqueSciences Po, and Panthéon-Sorbonne University.

The aim of the venture is to pursue innovation in Education and Research between the four institutions by sharing knowledge, practices and resources. A laboratory for innovation, Alliance has become furthermore a major academic platform for transatlantic debate on global issues.

The Alliance Call for Doctoral Mobility is intended to support and finance transatlantic research projects of the highest quality, in all disciplines, from doctoral students affiliated to one of the four partner institutions.

Doctoral students are encouraged to pursue their research abroad for a period of one to three months under the supervision of a host faculty member: students from the three French institutions can complete a research period at Columbia University while students from Columbia can complete a research period at the École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, or Panthéon-Sorbonne University.

Each project will be funded with a maximum limit of $5,000.

An information meeting on OXPO (the Oxford-Sciences Po Research Group in the Social Sciences) will take place on: January 26 at 10 a.m - meeting room of the Doctoral School, 3rd floor, 199 boulevard Saint-Germain.

OXPO (the Oxford-Sciences Po Research Group in the Social Sciences)
is a meeting point for social science scholars in Oxford and at Sciences Po. It coordinates various research projects that contribute to this goal and offers opportunities to develop new ones. It seeks to facilitate scholarly exchanges and collaborative projects between the Departments of Sociology and of Politics and International Relations, the Modern European History Research Centre in Oxford and Sciences Po, in Paris. OXPO offers several visiting schemes for academics and students wishing to spend time to conduct individual research at the other institution. OXPO visitors are encouraged to take an active role in academic and graduate seminars at either institution. Talks, presentations and conferences are announced on the OXPO website.   

There are schemes for doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers from both institutions and Visiting Professors (to Sciences Po) and Nuffield Visiting Fellows (to Oxford)

The OxPo Scientific Management Committee will select the scholars taking part in the exchange during its annual meeting, normally held at the beginning of Trinity term (late April/early May). Successful candidates will be informed shortly after.

Cambridge-Sciences Po academic exchange programme
Information meeting: January 26, 2018 at 10 a.m at Sciences Po

Deadline for applications: 13th April 2018

An information meeting on CAMPO (Cambridge-Sciences Po academic exchange programme) will take place on: January 26 at 10 a.m - meeting room of the Doctoral School, 3rd floor, 199 boulevard Saint-Germain.

Sciences Po and the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) at the University of Cambridge set up an academic exchange programme in 2014. With the signing, in Paris in November 2017, of the new CamPo research partnership between the two institutions we are delighted to be able to extend that exchange programme to include all departments and faculties within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Cambridge and all of Sciences Po’s research centres.

Applications are now open for stays in the other institution during the academic year 2018-19.

  • PhD students whose research would benefit from spending a period of time in the other institution are encouraged to apply to this scheme. Visiting students should arrange their stay so that it coincides with the teaching terms in the institution that will host them.
        • In Cambridge, visiting CAMPO PhD students will be affiliated with the host department and provided with desk space (whenever possible and usually in a shared open space), a library card and access to Cambridge online resources. Students will be assigned a member of the School as their institutional point of contact. Visiting CAMPO PhD students will be encouraged to play a full part in the academic life of the host department, through participation in seminars and interaction with faculty. For your information, please find the term dates for the University of Cambridge.
        • In Sciences Po, visiting CAMPO PhD students will be affiliated with one of the Sciences Po research centres and with the Ecole Doctorale. They will have access to desk space in one of the research centres (whenever possible and usually in a shared open space), a library card and access to Sciences Po online resources. Students will be assigned a member of the faculty as their institutional point of contact. For your information, please find the dates of the Sciences Po semesters and other relevant information on Sciences Po campus.

The CamPo exchange offers a fee-waver between POLIS and Sciences Po. There is no dedicated funding for exchange participants. Participants are advised to contact their institution (College and Department, Ecole Doctorale and Centres) to enquire about travel funds available to PhD students.

However, Cambridge and Sciences Po have an Erasmus exchange agreement, which this exchange scheme is a part of. Conditions apply to qualify for Erasmus support, in particular in relation to the length of stay (3 months usually); visiting PhD students at Cambridge whose first language is not English will also have to take and pass an IELTS test. As visiting Erasmus students, CAMPO PhD students will have access to all the institutional support provided by the Erasmus programme at Sciences Po or in Cambridge: they will be affiliated with a college and, subject to availability, they will be able to rent accommodation through the university/college). Participants should apply to their home institution to qualify for Erasmus funding prior to their departure.

For more info on Erasmus+ contact your home institution:

Sciences Po
or contact Aurélien Krejbich (

Successful applicants are encouraged to apply for Erasmus funding in their home institution and prior to departure.

Séminaire "Global Race"

Invitée : Françoise MORIN (Université Lyon 2 - Université Laval) le 19 janvier de 15 à 17 h
  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

Le premier séminaire "GLOBAL RACE" de l'année 2018 aura lieu le 19 janvier, de 15h à 17h en salle Jean Monnet, Sciences Po-CERI, 56 rue Jacob, 75006 Paris.

Nous aurons le plaisir d'écouter Françoise MORIN (Université Lyon 2 - Université Laval).

De l’ethnie à l’autochtonie. Mobilisations des organisations autochtones pour se faire reconnaître comme "peuples autochtones" à l’ONU et participer à l’élaboration d’une déclaration universelle de leurs droits (1977-2007)

Dans les années 70, les organisations autochtones des deux Amériques, faute de dialogue possible avec les États dont ils dépendaient, choisirent la voie onusienne pour faire reconnaître leur droit à l’auto-détermination. L’ONU accepta d’ouvrir ses portes en 1977 à leurs représentants lors d’une conférence sur « la discrimination contre les populations autochtones des Amériques ». Ce fut le début de l’internationalisation de la question autochtone qui donna lieu pendant 30 ans à de nombreux débats au sein des instances onusiennes. L’ONU est ainsi devenue le creuset de l’autochtonie où se rencontrent les représentants autochtones du monde entier. En 2007 ces populations autochtones furent enfin reconnues comme « peuples » dans le texte de la déclaration universelle de leurs droits. Nous verrons pourquoi cette catégorie politique a suscité tant de débats aussi bien chez les anthropologues que chez les gouvernants.

La séance sera discutée par Elisabeth Cunin.

L'inscription est obligatoire et doit s'effectuer auprès de :

Toutes les informations, ainsi que le reste du programme de l'année, sont disponibles sur ce site web .


Nous espérons vous y voir nombreux.


Bien cordialement,


Juliette Galonnier, pour le projet Global Race.
