In January 2022, Study at Sciences Po’s Winter School in Paris!

For the first time on campus, university students, graduates and professionals from around the world can come to Paris to study at Sciences Po during their winter break.

Have you wanted to study at Sciences Po but couldn’t commit to a summer session or a full-time programme? Would you like to expand your knowledge of international relations, human rights or economics? Are you looking to gain some ECTS credits during your winter break from a university other than your own?

Don’t miss the first on campus edition of the Sciences Po Winter School, a programme that offers the best of our interdisciplinary courses in the social sciences and humanities. Classes include Human Rights Advocacy: Forms of Action, Strategies, Methods; Public Economics: When Markets Need Governments; World Politics; Fighting Inequalities and Social Risks in the 21st Century: A Global Perspective; and The European Union at a Crossroads: Issues and Policies.

Students participating in the Winter School will earn 4 ECTS credits with 30 hours of classes, during just a few weeks from the 5th to 21st of January 2022.

Our Winter School is a new session derived from our pre-existing Summer School programme for university students. Classes are taught by Sciences Po professors and academic instructors, in English and always in line with our pluridisciplinary approach and international perspective. These courses are organised in small-group, interactive seminars that allow students to engage closely with renowned professors and international students through debates and discussions.

Students will be able to enjoy Paris in the wintertime, as well as participate in a social and cultural programme to experience a multicultural environment with a variety of social activities and visits of Parisian landmarks.
Sciences Po will begin accepting applications for the Winter School via the online application platform starting on October 5, 2021. The deadline to apply is November 25, 2021.

Programme Dates: January 5th – 21st, 2022

The Role of the Prosecutor in the 21st Century: A Conversation with François Molins and Cyrus Vance

The Role of the Prosecutor in the 21st Century: A Conversation with François Molins and Cyrus Vance

François Molins, General Prosecutor for Paris’ Court of Cassation, and Cyrus Vance, New York County District Attorney, came together during their lecture at Science Po’s Law School to highlight an observation gleaned from years of experience in the field: the role of a prosecutor in the 21st century is vastly different from how it was forty years ago. The two prosecutors, caught up as they are in the whirlwind of technological advances in the post 9/11 era, emphasised the impact of cybercrime—as well as that of terrorism—on their career paths and the way in which they approach their profession.

“Be aware of the freedoms you have and act on them”: Interview with Antoine Laurent, Alumnus and Activist

“Be aware of the freedoms you have and act on them”: Interview with Antoine Laurent, Alumnus and Activist

Antoine Laurent was only 25 when he joined SOS Méditerranée, an NGO that rescues migrants in danger in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than two years, Antoine participated actively in the operations of the Aquarius, a search and rescue vessel that aided more than 30,000 people in the world’s deadliest migratory route, until the ship was taken out of action for political and legal reasons. An alumnus of the one-year Master in Advanced Global Studies at PSIA (International Energy track), Antoine has since continued to champion the cause while working in politics. His book Aquarius Logbook: In The Shoes of A Sea Rescuer (Fr) was published by Kero Editions in April 2021. Read our interview with an alumnus of many talents and an ever-committed activist.

Souleymane Bachir Diagne:

Souleymane Bachir Diagne: "No Civilisation is an Island"

The lecture hall was full and the subject suited the occasion perfectly: universality and plurality. Invited on 2 September 2021 to mark the opening of the academic year for undergraduate students at Sciences Po, Senegalese philosopher Souleymane Bachir Diagne treated his newly reunited audience to a vivid and thought-provoking lecture. His theme was the highly topical issue of the tension between withdrawal into oneself and aspiration to the universal. Diagne champions a “lateral universal” as an urgent imperative of our time.
