Directed by Florence Haegel, the Center for European Studies and Comparative Politics (CEE) at Sciences Po is a multidisciplinary research unit focusing on the comparative study of politics. Social science research methodology is a major focus of the CEE’s work.


The CEE brings together some 26 senior researchers (FNSP, CNRS, university professors), roughly 40 doctoral and post-doctoral students, as well as around 30 affiliated and associate research fellows from France and abroad. CEE researchers are affiliated with four departments (political science, sociology, law, and history) as well as with the Paris School for International Affairs (PSIA), Urban School and Public Affairs School. The CEE also regularly hosts renowned visiting scholars for periods of one month to one year.


The CEE’s research has a strong international orientation. Most of its projects have an international and/or comparative dimension and results are frequently published in international peer-reviewed journals, often translated into different languages. In addition, CEE researchers participate in research networks involving multinational teams and the CEE works closely with other research centers abroad. CEE research gives rise to numerous scholarly events and publications, including a series of working papers published online: Cahiers européens de Sciences Po.


Since research requires that knowledge be transmitted, teaching and training, as well as hosting young researchers, are essential components of the CEE’s mission. Indeed, its researchers are very actively involved in Sciences Po teaching training programs at all levels, in particular the Master programs in Regional and Urban Strategies, Governing the Large Metropolis, Comparative Political Sociology, and European Affairs, as well as numerous doctoral programs.
