The strengthening of research is one of Sciences Po's essential priorities. The Center for History at Sciences Po also participates in this effort, and continues to assert Science Po's growing role in the domain of historical research- not only in France or in Europe, but world-wide.

Why contribute to the funding of the Center for History at Sciences Po?

  1. Participate in the Center's development by helping it reinforce its international network. Each year, the CHSP invites foreign researchers to come work in the archive collections. Doctoral students and post-doctoral students are also invited to work with the Center's research groups.
  2. Soutenir l'effort d'ouverture internationale des chercheurs du Centre by participating in the funding of their travel costs to consult archives abroad. Contribute to the translation of their works into English and Spanish.
  3. Contribute to the digitalization project of the contemporary history archives. This project is estimated to take five years and aims to digitize  about 100 archive collections. 
  4. Build a long-term partnership with the CHSP (expertise des chercheurs, organisation de colloques et de manifestations scientifiques, receive the journal of political and cultural history http://www.histoire-politique.fr)
  5. Tax deductions and other fiscal advantages (see Science Po's website « Construire ensemble »)

We need to fund:

  • The conservation of archives dans des compactus équipés pour recevoir des archives patrimoniales et accesibles
  • A reading room allowing us to welcome outside researchers, according to accessibility standards
  • The digitalization of the archive collections (this is estimated to cost 70,000 euros per year for five years)

Impact:
Production of documentaries for television:

  • "Michel Debré, Le dernier des gaullistes". A film by Albert du Roy and Jacques Morhan, produced by Frédéric Le Clair on the idea of Pierre Milli (France 3 Paris-Ile de France Centre)
  • Film planned about Gaston Monnerville
  • Thanks to the Fondation Robert ABDESSELAM and the donation of an archive collection, two historians wrote the following biography:  Robert Abdesselam. Une vie criblée de balles, Eric Belouet and Michel Dreyfus, published by les quatre chemins, May 2009. 

How do I make a donation?

Advantages :
Your donation makes you eligible for a tax deduction sur le revenu égale à 66% de son montant dans la limite des 20% de votre revenu imposable.

Ainsi un don de 100 euros ne revient en réalité au donateur qu'à 34 euros, alors que Sciences Po dispose bien de 100 euros.
