Exchange with the academic world is an important channel for discussing ideas and analyses with a critical and informed public; for sharpening one's arguments and for meeting the next generation of leaders.

In 2012/2013, Jacqueline Hénard will give conferences on  perspectives for France at the Internationales Zentrum für Kultur- und Technikforschung in Stuttgart and at the Schweizerisches Institut für Auslandsforschung in Zurich. In Paris, at the prestigious ‘Sciences Po’ – where she has been teaching for many years - she will  give a series of lectures on changing Germany ahead of next year’s federal elections.
