Sciences Po/Princeton Collaborative Research Grant:

The project Europeanization vs. Globalization: The Euro Crisis and the Changing Politics of Economic Interdependence in Europe (EUROGLOB), from Colin Hay, Professor of Political Science, Centre d’études européennes, Sciences Po and Sophie Meunier, Co-Director, European Union Program at Princeton, Research Scholar Woodrow Wilson School received a grant of 85 000 USD for three years. The Princeton-Sciences Po Collaborative Partnership “Europeanization vs. Globalization: The Euro Crisis and the Changing Politics of Economic Interdependence in Europe” (EUROGLOB) introduces a transatlantic research program that builds on existing structures at both partner institutions — the European Union Program at Princeton (EUPP) and the political economy group within the Centre d’Études Économiques (CEE) at Sciences Po. The program would bring Princeton and Sciences Po faculty as well as BA, MA and PhD students together to carry out collaborative research on globalization and European integration, with a particular focus on the changing politics of economic interdependence in the wake of the euro crisis. EUROGLOB would provide a framework and seed money for the development of collaborative research projects organized in three related clusters, which may be extended over time to examine the emergence of a globalization cleavage in polities beyond Europe. EUROGLOB will include participants from the EUPP and the CEE as well as additional affiliated departments and programs, such as Princeton’s Program on Contemporary European Politics and Society and Sciences Po’s MaxPo.


New Partnership

Partnership with the Huffington Post “My thesis in two minutes”

“My thesis in two minutes,” is a show in which The Huffington Post invites PhD researchers and PhD students to present ‘to the masses’ the subject of their dissertation. In two minutes and not a second more, they have to extract the essence of their subject of study and give practical applications of their work in everyday life. Spending years on a theme and having to summarize it in two minutes, that’s a challenge! Every Monday sees a different researcher sharing his/her knowledge, an intellectual heritage to a country and its future, accessible to all.

Watch the video with Angela Tacea, PhD Candidtate at Sciences Po, CEE, under the supervision of Renaud Dehousse. Her research focuses on the activity of national parliaments in regards to the European Justice and Home Affairs Policy, especially borders control and free movement of people.

New editorial partnership with EUtopia, the online newspaper/blog that intends to “create a place for European citizens to analyse the issues most relevant to their futures and openly debate them” (


Newsletter of the CEE

CEE’s Newsletter – Cities, territories and mobility, n° 3, January 2015

Europe is a continent engraved with the long history of its territories. One still reads the inheritance of Greek cities, Roman roads, regional identities more or less integrated to the construction of the nation state, or the meta-stability of the urban map since Middle Age. This territorialisation of the State, the politics, the social relations, or the economy still is remarkable in the low levels of mobility of European, especially transnational, and in the form of mobility. Europeans move very little, not too far from home and for limited periods. In addition, they come back often to their city, town or region of origin.
