The American Foundation for Paris School of Economics

LOGO_AFPSE_Grand.jpg
AFPSE MISSION

The American Foundation for the Paris School of Economics is a 501(c)3 organization 
dedicated to the advancement of economic understanding in France and elsewhere.

Partners have included the Collège de France, the Académie des sciences Morales et politiques, the French Ministry of Education, the German Marshall Fund of the United States

 

The mission of the Corporation is to promote a better understanding of contemporary economic and social issues in France and elsewhere in the world by providing financial support for graduate teaching and research in economics, public policy analysis, development, international relations, demography and related fields.

This support will primarily but not necessarily exclusively consist of providing financial assistance to l’Ecole d’Economie de Paris (Paris School of Economics), an autonomous graduate educational institution located in Paris, France, dedicated to teaching, scholarship and policy analysis at the highest level.  The Corporation will provide financial support for both traditional graduate programs of teaching and research, and other endeavors to explain the relevance of modern economic analysis for public policy.

The Corporation’s assistance may also consist of the funding of teaching chairs, student fellowships, research, publications, international exchange, and all such activities as are related to its mission.  In the pursuit of this mission, the Corporation may support activities in France, the United States, or elsewhere.

Finally, AFPSE is funding the creation by Laura Leker of animated videos to explain the key concepts of the new program:
