The CReSPo (Centre de Recherche en Science Politique de l’Université Saint-Louis Bruxelles) was created at the end of 2001. Under the impulse of its first director, Olivier Paye, it quickly developed into a reference center for the analysis of public action. Its research activities have progressively diversified to cover fields as diverse as Europeanization, citizen participation, international relations, peace policies, and social policies. The CReSPo is currently (since January 1, 2021 and for a period of 3 years) directed by Amandine Orsini and composed of about thirty members. It regularly organizes seminars and conferences, and participates in several Belgian and international research networks.
