The global financial crisis has triggered intense public debate about the future of private equity, and legislation and regulation of the industry is constantly evolving in the US and Europe.
From 3-4 March Sciences Po hosted Paris’s first ever Private Equity Forum to promote greater understanding and clarification of the complex issues surrounding private equity. Over two days academics, students and interested professionals had the opportunity to attend a wonderful array of stimulating debates, a roundtable and presentations of the latest research on private equity.
The speakers included a range of prestigious international professionals, journalists and academics, such as French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde; Josh Lerner, Harvard Business School’s Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Investment Banking; Professor Eli Talmor, founder of London Business School’s Coller Insitute of Private Equity; Dominique Senequier, CEO of AXA Private Equity; Henry Kravis, Co-Founder, Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co, New York; Oliver Gottschalg of HEC School of Management, Paris; and journalist and author Josh Kosman.
For all of us who love Paris : Mark Dekeister exhibits his work on the ground floor of the library at 27 rue Saint Guillaume from the 8th of March.
The subject of this exhibition is the city of Paris as seen by this artist who works on superb and original polaroid photographs !
Between 1945 and 2005, Sciences Po library compiled over 18 000 clipping files on French and international news.
The oldest of these files (up to the late 1970s) are currently being digitised. Over 3000 can now be consulted online from Sciences Po’s 7 campuses: http://dossierspresse.sciences-po.fr/consult/.
This is a rare and precious treasure, as the clippings cover an extremely rich period of history: the Algerian war, the Suez crisis, the construction of the Berlin wall and thousands of other subjects covered by the press at the time can now be located via a user-friendly interface.
