Sciences Po

The selection committee for the Sciences Po leadership post has chosen its short list, which includes 3 names: Frédéric Mion, Louis Vogel, and Andrew Wachtel. Interestingly, all three have US connections, and Wachtel is himself an American, who organized the Sciences Po exchange program with Northwestern.

Hi Arthur,

I recently came across your blog and have been enjoying looking through it! You have such a clear enthusiasm for French culture and politics that is infectious, and makes for an enjoyable read.

I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing your blog on Glipho? Glipho is a new social blogging network that aims to promote the writing of its users and help build their audiences. We are trying to establish a creative community at Glipho, and your blog is just what we are looking for.

As your blog is powered by Blogger, you can simply import all your old posts to Glipho without affecting your existing blog at all. You can use your Glipho account to connect to any other major social network accounts you may own, so you can spread your blog as far as possible. We also use our own social media accounts to promote your content.

If you're interested check out our website at and have a look around. Please feel free to ask me any questions, and if you would like to receive an invite to set up an account!

Have a great day,

Dear Art,

let's make a bet. F. Mion, a quintessential "énarque", will win. He is the one who will guarantee that the traditional administrative "élite" continues to control the reproduction procedures, the relevant values, the people who sit on committees and internal juries. Vogel is too close to the academic world, and to the large universities, and the US candidate will be deemed too... American

I don't believe they will take Wachtel (too "American", whatever that means), so it will be Mion.
