Artillerie: discover our future campus!

A new chapter in Sciences Po’s history is beginning. The redevelopment project chosen for the Artillerie site acquired in late 2016 has been unveiled: it is the work of the team led by Sogelym Dixence with architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Beyond the architectural challenge of transforming a seventeenth-century novitiate into a sustainable, innovative university campus, this plan represents a complete renewal of Sciences Po after 150 years of existence.

Sciences Po acquired the Artillerie site in December 2016 and launched a competitive negotiation process to redevelop it in early 2017. The consortium that has won the contract is a real dream team made up of leading names in architecture, campus specialists and sustainable building experts. Alongside the property developer Sogelym Dixence, the consortium brings together architecture firms Wilmotte & Associés and Moreau Kusunoki, and international higher education specialist Sasaki (read more in our press release (pdf, 56 Kb).

A sustainable, innovative campus

It is no small challenge to transform a seventeenth-century novitiate into a campus capable of adapting to tomorrow’s higher education needs and still remain true to the university’s identity, which has been 150 years in the making. The result is a measured, elegant architectural design that sets off this exceptional heritage to full advantage while creating spaces that look to the future. 

A campus to attract talent from around the world

With this new 14,000 m2 site, Sciences Po will consolidate its historic grounding in the heart of Paris and enhance its profile. Redesigned and streamlined, Campus 2022 will be better organised, more coherent and able to cater optimally to more than 10,000 students and 200 faculty members in the middle of the capital. This world-class urban campus worthy of one of Europe’s leading research universities is destined to attract top faculty and students from around the world.

Animal Rights: slow but definite progress

Animal Rights: slow but definite progress

The need to limit or end animal suffering has become a major topic of public debate. Scientific experiments, bullfighting and foie gras have all come under insistent criticism. Videos denouncing the conditions in which animals are made to live and die are widely circulated. Veganism, which still had an extremely limited following a few years ago, is gaining in popularity. So what is the law contributing to this environment? We asked Regis Bismuth, professor at the Sciences Po Law School and co-editor of Sensibilité animale. Perspectives juridiques (CNRS Editions)* for an overview of advances in animal rights.

Improving crime prevention

Improving crime prevention

How can criminality be prevented? Does imprisonment help reduce recidivism in the long term? Sciences Po researcher Roberto Galbiati studies the economics of crime. He has begun to open up the black box of incarceration and anti-recidivism policies in France, Italy and the United States. Dr. Galbiati will present his research findings on 4 July at a symposium organised by Sciences Po’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP) in partnership with France Stratégie.
