Headed by Florence Haegel since September 2016, Sciences Po’s Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics (UMR 8239) is a multidisciplinary research unit specialising in comparative political analysis.

The key research domains are grouped around four main overlapping research axes:

- the transformations of capitalism

- the state as a producer of public policies

- Cities, borders and (im)mobilities

- Strains on democratic representation

CEE is now home to more than 34 senior researchers (FNSP, CNRS, university professors), some 45 PhD candidates and recent PhD recipients and 30 research associates, from both France and abroad. CEE also regularly hosts well-known guest researchers, postdocs and PhD candidates for periods ranging from one month to one year.

Openness to the international scientific community is one of CEE’s key qualities. Most of its research projects include an international and/or comparative dimension and their results are often published in international journals or translated into foreign languages. CEE’s researchers belong to networks that include multinational teams. CEE also maintains long-standing partnerships with research institutions abroad. CEE’s research projects include the organisation of scientific events and are the springboard for numerous publications.
