LIEPP Partners

LIEPP's Sciences Po internal network relies mainly on its four founding centers : Centre for european studies and comparative politics (CEE), Department of Economics, Centre for sociology of organisations (CSO) and Centre for studies in social change (OSC). LIEPP also collaborates regularly with other centers and units: the Centre for political research (CEVIPOF), Centre d'histoire, Law School, School of Public Affairs, and Doctoral School.

The national and international academic network of LIEPP outside Sciences Po is based on the diversification of affiliations and numerous research projects.

Alongside, LIEPP has established a network of non-academic partners with institutions responsible for evaluations and public actors who request and use evaluations. These partnerships take several forms: funding for research projects, regular collaborations around the organization of events, and data access.
