Welcome by Mr. Richard Descoings, Director of Sciences Po
In conjunction with France’s presidency of the Council of the European Union, Sciences Po is honoured to host the conference marking the 35th anniversary of the Eurobarometer.
A selective university with an international mission, Sciences Po’s student body comprises almost 40% international students, the majority of whom are young Europeans. Indeed one of our foremost ambitions lies in educating new generations of young Europeans such that they can understand and engage in debates on the future of Europe and the challenges of its construction, and play their part in influencing decisions which will affect the whole of Europe.
