Our Academic Community

A researcher

AT THE CROSSROAD OF DISCIPLINES

Sciences Po's scientific community consists of approximately 230 researchers and 350 doctoral students across 11 research centres or departments and a doctoral school. Their work mainly lies in one of Sciences Po's five major disciplines: law, economics, history, political science and sociology.

In order to further develop cross-disciplinary research and cooperation between disciplines, research at Sciences Po also extends to specialties such as philosophy, geography, anthropology, etc.

AT THE HEART OF PUBLIC DEBATE

Published in the most renowned scientific journals and regularly acknowledged for their work through awards, our researchers disseminate their knowledge to the general public and actively contribute to public debate. They regularly appear in the media, at global conferences and events.

OUR VISITING RESEARCHERS

Each year, over a hundred researchers and professors from around the world come to conduct their research and teach at Sciences Po.

ACADEMIC RECRUITMENT

The development of our academic community is one of Sciences Po’s priority objectives, with a strong focus on the internationalisation of profiles and the place of women. Sciences Po was awarded the Human Resources Excellence in Research label by the European Commission. This is a result of concrete actions, particularly in terms of recruitment: transparency, merit judgment, and recognition of qualifications.
