Anti-discrimination and secularism

Sciences Po is committed to promoting a culture of equality and inclusion. It has established a wide variety of procedures and tools to guarantee all university-members a positive, respectful and welcoming environment in which to work and study.

The role of the university’s Anti-Discrimination and Secularism Officer is to promote equality and to support any member of the university who believes that he or she has been the victim of discriminatory comments, attitudes or behaviour, in line with Sciences Po’s Regulations on Student Life (PDF, 51 Ko) and with French law. The officer also coordinates initiatives to combat racism, anti-semitism and all other forms of prejudice.

A specialised Anti-Discrimination Working Group, established at the request of the Director of the IEP, began its review in September 2022. It will be working to put forward recommendations for enhancing the university’s tools and procedures for preventing and dealing with discrimination. Chaired by Jeanne Lazarus, the working group is made up of 26 members and will set out its conclusions in a report due to be published in early 2023.
