"As French as Everyone Else? is a timely, unique, and major contribution. Brouard and Tiberj—leading French political science researchers—offer a concise book on the important case of France. Given the relatively large size of the country’s immigrant population and its political and social significance, its study is especially relevant. These scholars examine in depth the cultural, political, and religious attitudes of this very important community. It is one about which little is known, in a scientific sense, until now."
—Michael Lewis-Beck, F. Wendell Miller Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the University of Iowa and author of How France Votes, The French Voter: Before and After the 2002 Elections, and French Presidential Elections

The US Sciences Po Foundation held its inaugural annual gala in New York the 16 June 2011. The guest of honour was Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the European Central Bank.
Science Po alumni living in the US or passing through New York were hosted for an evening at the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the centre of Manhattan.
The event was part of Sciences Po’s development campaign “Sciences Po 2013” launched three years ago, which aims to have Sciences Po recognised as one of the very best humanities and social sciences universities in the world. Funds raised by the gala will allow Sciences Po to finance its ambitious program of scholarships, invest in groundbreaking research and offer students and researchers improved facilities and a more appealing campus.
Harvard Law School and Sciences Po Law School (SPLS) have launched a wide-ranging program that includes exchanges of faculty and students, both pre-doctoral and post-doctoral, and co-sponsorship of joint conferences on U.S. and European legal issues.
The first Annual Benefit Gala of the recently established US Sciences Po Foundation will take place on Thursday June 16, 2011 at 6:00PM at the Mandarin Oriental, 80 Columbus Circle (at 60th Street), New York City. Only registered guests will be admitted.
The US Sciences Po Foundation, the president of which is Anne Sinclair, was established in 2010 and aims to cultivate a strong base of support in the United States for the purpose of enhancing recognition of Sciences Po as one of the world’s top universities. The US Sciences Po Foundation raises funds in support of academic excellence and has a scholarship program that encourages top students and scholars from American universities to study at Sciences Po.
The Honoree and Keynote Speaker at this year's event will be Jean–Claude Trichet, President of the European Central Bank and Chairman of the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB).
We encourage you to support the Foundation by purchasing, or suggesting to your firm to purchase, a table or several seats at the event. We would also like to have participation as large as possible from alumni in the United States. For this purpose, The Association of Sciences Po Alumni, Inc is subsidizing 100 seats at a special price of $200 for “Young Graduates” (defined as registered members of the Association who received their diploma from Sciences Po Paris no earlier than 2001).
