The Commissions on Gender-Based Violence and on Ethics publish their conclusions

The two commissions dedicated to the fight against gender-based and sexual violence and to fostering ethics within Sciences Po submitted the conclusions of their work to the Acting President Bénédicte Durand on Tuesday, 4 May 2021.

> Read the recommendations of the commission on gender-based and sexual violence

> Read the recommendations of the commission on ethics and deontology

Since the establishment of these two commissions on 17 February 2021, the chairpersons, Danièle Hervieu Léger and Catherine de Salins, as well as the various members, have worked independently with remarkable commitment to learn the lessons of the crisis experienced by Sciences Po in recent months.

In their respective reports, the commissions have drawn up a detailed analysis of the ethical mechanisms and the structures to tackle gender-based and sexual violence within the institution, and formulate concrete and ambitious recommendations in order to strengthen these mechanisms.

Bénédicte Durand expressed her gratitude to the member of the commissions and announced a provisional timetable for the implementation of these recommendations

The quality of the proposals I have received allows me to affirm the commitment I made before you to present an implementation plan as soon as possible. We will propose an approach and a timetable for implementation before the end of the current academic year. From the beginning of the next academic year, we wish to reinforce our mechanism for listening to and supporting victims, and to overhaul the disciplinary procedure.

Bénédicte Durand also expressed her willingness to engage in a similar reflection on the fight against racism, anti-Semitism, and all forms of discrimination in the institution. “Just as a stop must be put to gender-based and sexual violence, hatred of the Other, for whatever reason, must be prevented, combated, and sanctioned relentlessly at Sciences Po”.

Insights on the War in Ukraine: Sciences Po's Response

Over the course of the last few days, all eyes have been turned towards Ukraine and the war being waged on the orders of Vladimir Putin. Aggression on this scale, in direct violation of international law, and the unbridled disregard for the value of human life that have been witnessed over the past few days has left many feeling at a loss, unsure of how to process the events that are unfolding on the global stage.

Ukraine War: What is the Economic Impact of Trade Sanctions on Russia?

Since the start of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, economic sanctions have been imposed on Russia on a scale rarely seen in modern times. As the nature and extent of Russian violence worsens, there are growing calls for even tougher sanctions and for a drastic reduction of EU imports from Russia. But what will be the economic impact of these sanctions? To answer this thorny but urgent question, researchers from Sciences Po’s Economics Department presented their expertise and early research results in a conference chaired by PSIA Dean Arancha Gonzalez, on April 11th.
