10th Anniversary of the Student Colloquium, May 15-16, 2017

This year marks the 10th anniversary of this colloquium and the 5th year of a partnership with Sciences Po Bordeaux to promote scientific training and networking among young French-speaking researchers. This year, we synchronized the colloquium dates with those of the Association francophone pour le savoir (ACFAS - May 8 to 12, 2017 - McGill) and the Société québécoise de science politique (SQSP - May 17 to 19, 2017 - UQAM) to enrich this experience of professional socialization.

Testimonials from participants of previous editions of the student colloquium

"I really enjoyed it. I found the atmosphere good and the audience friendly, the interventions rich and diverse. A great experience, an initiative to keep!"

"The format of the colloquium really makes it possible to interact formally and informally with the other participants. The diversity of presentations (domains, universities, approaches, themes) was a real wealth. "

The Colloquium and its objectives

CAPP researchers supervise the team of masters and doctoral students who organize this colloquium to which colleagues from other universities and, for several years, of Bordeaux are invited. This colloquium allows young researchers to present their research related to public policy. The papers deal with government action throughout the different phases of the public policy cycle (elaboration, programming, implementation, evaluation, etc.). This colloquium is designed to be multidisciplinary, and in this sense, it is open to all Masters and PhD students regardless of their discipline or institution of origin. The organizing committee also offers training activities in qualitative and quantitative research methods, a conference on the methods of publishing a scientific article and a scientific conference by a visiting professor or a round table.

The five objectives of the student symposium:

  1. Enable Masters and PhD students to present their work in a research context in accordance with professional standards;
  2. Develop the critical skills of the participants by reviewing their peers’ work;
  3. Promote learning about the standards for the dissemination of knowledge through scientific communication in the context of conferences and colloquia;
  4. Present the Faculty of Social Sciences and Laval University as stimulating research environments;
  5. Encourage academic exchanges between students from Quebec and those from the University of Bordeaux.
