Its objective is also to promote research of the professors of the department who are now seventeen. With the recruitment in the recent past of five new professors and seven young assistant professors, Sciences Po has now the capacity to develop an ambitious research in economics as demonstrated by the publications and the research grants (European Research Council, Labex, ANR chair of excellence) of the members of the department.
These professors have all a strong international experience, with a Phd or past positions in international universities. The department is particularly strong in the fields of labor economics, political economy and international economics.
