Testimonials from participants of previous editions of the student colloquium

"Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the conference. The comments and investment of each participant are remarkable. The facilities are very good and the overall layout is very professional. The informal moments were also pleasant. A great formula for young researchers! Bravo :) "(10th Student Conference of the CAPP Participant).

"I liked it very much, I found the atmosphere good and the audience sympathetic, the interventions rich and diversified, a very beautiful experience, an initiative to preserve!"

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

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.
