Published by Presses Universitaires de France (PUF) in March 2013, her book "La nouvelle bourgeoisie islamique : le modèle turc" contemplates the Islam bourgeoisie in Turkey. This publication is an extension of her 2011 thesis at Sciences Po, "La formation de la nouvelle bourgeoisie islamique en Turquie : le cas du Müsiad", directed by Nilüfer Göle, Research Director at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS)
Le Comité France Turquie is an association dedicated to the development of French-Turkish relations. The organisation organizes a variety of meetings and conferences– political and academic debates between French and Turkish representatives, press forums, seminars, the publication of a newsletter and the award of a literary prize.
Paul Stephenson has joined the Center for European Studies through a Marie Curie fellowship awarded by the European Union in order to study the mechanisms by which it reports to Member States and citizens of the efficiency of use of their money.
There is growing crisis of confidence among EU citizens in the democratic accountability of the EU. There is uncertainty among many political actors about the added vale of EU policies paid for via the EU budget. More than ever, the EU must demonstrate the chains and mechanisms of accountability vis-à-vis its member states and their general publics, as to the correct and effective use of taxpayers’ money.
APPLAUD (Accountability and Public Policy Audit in the European Union) will analyse the institutionalisation of financial control and public policy audit in the EU. It will examine the structures through which the EU has come to ‘give account’ of its public policies, but also how institutions themselves have shaped what we understand by ‘accountability’ in the EU. As such the project will have both an inter-institutional dimension, while also looking historically at the creation and evolution of the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg, its internal functioning, structures and approaches to audit.
The results will be an enhanced understanding of the link between accountability and institutionalisation, and the evolution of the Court’s role and practice. The project will contribute to key debates in public policy on government and accountability, and to the state-of-the-art by bringing new theoretical, methodological and empirical dimensions to the study of financial control in the EU since the 1950s.
The project adopts a mixed method approach of document analysis - including EU institutional archives housed in Florence - elite interviews and questionnaires, and in so doing will seek to reconcile the literature on accountability with insights from new institutionalism and political sociology.
The Prize Aguirre-Basualdo, the Chancellery’s prestigious award recognizing a thesis in Economics and Management, was rewarded to Sciences Po PhD Urszula Szczerbowicz for her thesis "Unconventional Monetary Policies."
Sciences Po extends Urszula Szczerbowicz our sincerest congratulations.
Her thesis was conducted under a co-tutorship led by Henri Sterdyniak of the OFCE and Pierpaolo Benigno of the University LUISS Guido Carli.
Urszula is currently an Economist at the CEPII where she participates in the scientific programme «Macroeconomy and International Finance.”
The Prize will be awarded during a ceremony of pomp and circumstance in the Sorbonne’s grand amphitheater on Monday December 2nd, 2013 at 15:00
In the pursuit of the development of its proactive financial aid policy, Sciences Po has committed to adding two new tiers to its financial aid programme. The new classification system, which will increase the system from 7 to 9 levels, will allow Sciences Po to boost aide to its least advantaged students while continuing to support the middle class. In accordance with the new policy, level 7 recipients will receive 4125€ in aid from Sciences Po and level 0a students will receive 750€. This retroactive policy will be enacted as of January 2014.
Sciences Po’s financial aid policy includes numerous other resources (merit-based scholarships, housing assistance, emergency support…) and touches more and more students each year. At the start of the 2013 academic year, 28% of all first year students were recipients of financial aid.

The recruitment of researchers and professor-researchers is fundamental to the scientific development of any instution in higher education and research. Consequently, over the past few years Sciences Po has taken part in an ambitious recruitment policy set to be continued in the long term.
Over the course of the 2012-2013 academic school year, we have had the pleasure of welcoming 16 new researchers and professor-researchers to Sciences Po: Laurent Bonnefoy, Paola Lopez Caballero, Mario Del Pero, Martial Foucault, Laurent Gayer, Olivier Godechot, Colin Hay, Gerd-Rainer Horn, Vincent-Antonin Lépinay, Pap Ndiaye, Olivier Pilmis, Jan Rovny, VirginieTournay, Louis-André Vallet, Dina Waked and Roberto Zaugg.
Nicolas Coeurdacier, Associate Professor of Economics, has received a starting grant of the European Research Council (ERC) for his project: Within and across countries heterogeneity in international finance (INFINHET).
Financial globalization has led to a surge in cross-border capital flows, a large increase in countries gross foreign asset and liability positions, together with increasing global imbalances. Understanding how private investors structure their international portfolios and how such financial decisions interact with the real side of the economy has recently become a critical macro policy issue. This is especially true in the context of the recent financial crisis where policy makers and academics have even been advocating the understanding of international capital flows and current account imbalances in the US and within European countries as a necessary step to analyze the roots of the crisis and its international transmission. Another important recent evolution is the larger role played by large and fast growing emerging markets in the global economy. The world is getting more asymmetric as these countries feature very different characteristics (institutional, demographics, or in terms of policies conducted to name a few) compared to developed countries.
INFINHET aims at developing new dynamic multi-country macro-models to better account for the heterogeneity across agents and across countries in order to answer age-old questions in international macro such as the benefits from financial integration, the emergence and adjustment of external global imbalances, the joint dynamics of exchange rates and asset prices, the international transmission of shocks through financial linkages, the international dimension of fiscal policies in open economies.
ERC grants are very selective and go to "the very best, truly creative scientists and scholars". Since they have been established Sciences Po has won eight ERC Grants, five of them being held by permanent faculty of the Department of Economics.
