Pierre Hassner

31 January 1933 - 26 May 2018

We are extremely sad to have to announce the death of Pierre Hassner, emeritus Professor at the Center for International Studies, Sciences Po.

An eminent specialist in international relations, Pierre Hassner was a theoretician, political philosopher and a subtle observer of the world scene. Eastern European exiled to the West, Romanian by birth and adopted French, Jewish educated Catholic but profoundly secular, European friend of the Americans, he was "man of paradoxes or man of the passages" whose life and path reflect the contradictions of the post-war world.
He died Saturday, May 26, at the age of 85 years.


Islamic Networks between South Asia and the Gulf


Over the last fifty years, pan-Islamic ties have intensified between South Asia and the Gulf. Gathering together some of the best specialists on the subject, Laurence Louër and Christophe Jaffrelot explore these ideological, educational and spiritual networks in a book entitled Pan Islamic Connections. Transnational Networks between South Asia and the Gulf (Hurst & Co, December 2017).
