Research project.s you intend to pursue at the CEE

In the framework of the COST Action ProSEPS, « Professionalization and Social Impact of European Political Science”, Pierre Squevin is principally in Paris to conduct a research and write a country report about the advisory role of French political scientists. More broadly, his inquiries will question the social impact of French political science. He will contribute to the activities of one of the four ProSEPS working groups, within which other European countries are represented. In a comparative perspective, the members and contributors of his working group will also deliver in the next few months similar reports about the advisory roles of political scientists in their countries.
