CFA: 6th Sciences Po Graduate Political Theory Conference

Keynote Speaker: Achille Mbembe

The 6th Graduate Conference in Political Theory, hosted by Sciences Po Paris’ Doctoral School and CEVIPOF will take place on the 30th and 31st of May 2018. These two days of  discussion are open to young political theorists coming from diverse intellectual and cultural horizons. For this year’s edition, we will have the pleasure of welcoming Achille Mbembe, whose closing presentation will mark the end of our event.
