OXPO is a meeting point for social science scholars in Oxford and at Sciences Po, who work on the comparative analysis of the evolution of political systems and societies, in Europe and beyond. It coordinates various comparative research projects that contribute to this goal and offers various opportunities to develop new ones, including for doctoral students and post-docs. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have a research project involving French and British collaboration and are looking for support.
