Who are we?
Pour le Brésil
Conférence Pour le Brésil is a student and alumni-led initiative at Sciences Po Paris that will gather high-level personalities, scholars, experts and representatives of international organisations in conferences in Paris.
The Conferences' main goal is to promote fruitful exchanges and discussions on how to overcome the main political, economic and social challenges towards a more sustainable and inclusive development in Brazil.
Besides being a recognised student-led initiative at Sciences Po, having been validated by both the administration and the student community, we are also a registered association at the Préfecture de Police de Paris.
Sciences Po is a prestigious grande-école at the heart of Paris. It was founded in 1872 to promote a new class of French politicians. Sciences Po's overarching mission today is to educate the future leaders in both the public and the private sectors.
Many heads of state and government officials studied at Sciences Po, including the French president Emmanuel Macron, and former presidents such as François Hollande, François Mitterrand, Jacques Chirac and Georges Pompidou. Sciences Po’s alumni also include former prime-ministers from France, Canada, Luxembourg and UN Secretary General Boutros-Ghali, together with other heads of international organisations and large companies.
WHO SPOKE AT SCIENCES PO?
In 2021, for the second year in a row, Sciences Po was ranked as second best university for Politics and International Studies in the world by the QS World University Rankings.
