OxPo collaborative projects
OxPo supports a number of on-going programmes and encourages collaboration through the funding of workshops, conferences, lectures or seminars (including doctoral seminars). New programmes take time to develop and the exchange of academics is one of the key elements for such developments.
OxPo provides seed money for joint projects leading to grant applications to national (ANR, ESRC, BA etc.), international (EU Framework Programmes etc.) or subnational (regional, private foundation etc.) funding bodies.
OxPo supports joint doctoral seminars and conferences in political science, international relations, social policy and intervention, sociology and history.
How to apply for OxPo funding
OxPo funding is open to collaborative projects between faculty and PhD students of Sciences Po and Oxford University (DPIR, History, Social Policy and Intervention and Sociology).
To apply contact the OxPo academic coordinator Florence Faucher
Applications must include:
- an outline of the research project/event/ collaboration
- a short cv or biographical sketch of the participants
- a budget
For more information, please contact Florence Faucher with details of your collaborative project (research programme, workshop, conference etc).

This is the longest existing programme of OxPo. It was launched at the French Political Science Association (AFSP) Congress in 2007. Coordinated by Patrick Le Galès and Desmond King, it focuses on the transformation of the state in Europe. Over the years, this programme has led to several conferences and workshops, co-taught classes in both institutions, as well as a number of co-authored and co-edited publications.
This long standing programme, coordinated by Andrew Hurrell & Karoline Postel-Vinay, focused on the BRICs metaphor. Over the years, it has organised a couple of joint graduate seminars and conferences, and is also the basis for on-going collaboration between partners at the CERI and the DPIR.
Gwen Sasse (Nuffield College, Oxford), Mirna Safi (Sciences Po, OSC) and Adrian Favell (Sciences Po, CEE) are developing new collaborations on the question of migrations. A first graduate conference was held in Paris in June 2015. A workshop was organised in Oxford during Trinity 2015.
Stephen Whitefield and Jan Rovny launched a new programme on party competition. They planned series of workshops to engage with the growing focus in research on issue salience and issue ownership. Two workshops were held in 2015-16, in Paris and Oxford.
Nicolas Rousselier and Scot Peterson set up a new programme looking comparatively at constitutions. A first workshop was organised in Trinity 2015.
Following the Visiting Professorships to Sciences Po of Nic Cheeseman (2011) and Ricardo Soares de Oliveira (2012), and the appointment of Richard Banegas in Sciences Po, regular collaboration between Africanists from Sciences Po and Oxford took shape. A Global Seminar ran for the first time in 2014.
