Insights from Olivier Guillet

Interview with Olivier Guillet on the values and qualities for true leadership in the world of today. In order to make a difference leaders need to combine intellect, emotion, and intuition with an excellent understanding and a continuous exploration of the world. They need to be able to provide positive meaning to business and technology. We train our students to be "thinkers and doers, meaning-providers and risk-takers."

The Sciences Po School of Management and Innovation in Paris and the Stockholm School of Economics have joined forces to create a dual Master's degree programme in Economics, Management and Sustainability.

Students will complete the programme in two years, spending the first year at Sciences Po in the Master in International Management & Sustainability and the second year at the Stockholm School of Economics in the Master in Business & Management.

This two-year framework is based on mutual recognition of the existing curricula at each school, with a specific focus on innovation and change management, business development and entrepreneurship. The combined strengths of the two institutions will prepare students for careers in consulting, management or entrepreneurship. After successfully completing the two-year programme, students receive a Master's degree from Sciences Po and a Master's degree from SSE. Applications are open until February 1st, 2019 for qualified applicants from around the world.

Inclusive Capitalism and Social Progress

Debate about the Conclusions of the Internationa Panel on Social Progress
5th of November 2018 - 5 to 7 pm
  • Inclusive capitalism and social progressInclusive capitalism and social progress


Date: November 5th, 2018, from 17:00 till 19:00 Sciences Po, Amphithéâtre Simone Veil (28, rue des Saints-Pères, 75007 Paris)

What is IPSP?

The International Panel on Social Progress is an independent association of world leading researchers from social sciences and the humanities, who teamed up with the goal of developing research-based, multi-disciplinary, non-partisan, action-driven solutions to pressing challenges of our time. The perspective is that of a reinvented and pragmatic utopia – an optimistic projection towards a world that thinks and acts in favour of social progress and justice.

The Event

After four years of drafting, debating, rethinking and revision, the IPSP report was published in September 2018 (Rethinking Society for the 21st Century, Cambridge University Press) together with a programmatic short book – A Manifesto for Social Progress. We take the opportunity of this publication to present the main results and propositions of the report. A discussion with actors in the field – International Organizations, Business, Civil Society – who all champion Inclusive Growth and Social Progress is a good way to put those results in perspective.

The Camera as a Weapon, Photographs as Bombs

Experimental photographer JR discusses the politicism of art with students at Sciences Po
  • JR at Sciences Po ©Sciences PoJR at Sciences Po ©Sciences Po

Cameras that “serve as weapons”, photos as “political bombs” that “explode”: such was the language of photographer JR when he addressed a packed lecture hall of students at Sciences Po this week. Taking his audience on a two-hour whistle-stop tour of the most provocative pieces of his career – by way of Paris, Rio de Janeiro, and the Mexican border – JR answered the question of whether art is by its nature political. If his compelling lecture made one thing clear, it’s that his work certainly always is.

“The idea is not to show that people are good or that people are bad, it’s to show that in every one of us there is good and bad, but that we are not going to avoid representing anyone. The point is that when one looks at the fresco, everybody is represented: each of us observes one another.”

Whether they are pasted to the exterior of demolished housing estates on Paris’ outskirts, or peering over walls dividing countries around the world, JR’s photos are as much about their viewers as the people they contain. Spectatorship is the crucial concept, as he explained at Sciences Po – his own eyes obscured as ever behind a pair of trademark sunglasses.

Static images become interactive installations, he told students, via the reactions of spectators: whether that means tearing the photos down, strolling obliviously on top of them, or taking a selfie alongside. In that sense, JR’s art belongs equally to the often overlooked (another keyword) corners of society that he seeks to represent, as to the ruling authorities he is usually required to work around.

“We asked [the American Border Patrol Guard] whether we could post the video on social media – because nobody expected that any of the guards would allow that… He said do it, and I must have asked him at least three times: he said do it because that is the only way we will change ideas and reopen the debate.”

Opening up a debate is exactly what JR succeeded in doing within the Emile Boutmy Lecture Hall at Sciences Po. Having processed the artist’s message as much with their eyes as with their ears, students were invited to pose any questions. As they have before in various locations around the world, JR’s photographs proved their tireless ability to open eyes and provoke a reaction.
