  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

Patrick Le Galès, CNRS Research director at the Centre d’études européennes end member of LIEPP, was elected as president of the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) at their 2012 annual meeting hosted by MIT.

Founded in 1989, the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) is an international, inter-disciplinary organization with members in over 50 countries on five continents. The academic disciplines represented in SASE include economics, sociology, political science, management, psychology, law, history, and philosophy.

SASE is pays much attention to topics related to institutions and to regulation of the economy. Among others, SASE regularly publishes the Socio- Economic Review, edited by Oxford University Press. The general secretariat run by Martha Zuber is based in Science Po’s Centre for Sociology of Organisations.

As economic sociology and comparative political economy have been considerably developed at Sciences Po over the last few years, its academics became more involved in  SASE.
Three years ago, Patrick Le Galès, Christine Musselin and Cornelia Woll were elected members of the executive committee, as was recently Marion Fourcade, Co-Director of
MaxPo, a new research centre jointly established by Sciences Po and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies.

During the 2012 annual meeting, hosted by the MIT, Patrick Le Galès was elected as SASE president. His tenure will last until the 2013 annual meeting. This up-coming meeting, hosted by the University of Milan, will be dedicated to States in Crisis.
