In April, the Sciences Po Law School Clinic students who are currently collaborating with RTE on a project on territorial inequalities in higher education in France won the prestigious Anthony Mainguené Prize.

We congratulate students Margaret Harris, Audrey Bergassoli and Hicham Touili-Idrissi, all in their first year of a Master’s in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action, and Hawa Diallo, in her second year of a Master’s in Global Governance Studies, for their project “Inequalities in French Higher Education - state of play, challenges and recommendations", and for receiving this award.

The Anthony Mainguené Prize offers recognition of their work, which the judges considered to demonstrate humanity and ethics, and also highlights the strength of the collaboration between RTE and Sciences Po Law School Clinic Human Right, Economic Development and Globalization (HEDG) programme, which is now in its third year. 

The Prize is given once per year to those projects closest to the values of the Anthony Mainguené Foundation, and offers €3,500 to ensure the continued development of the project over the subsequent academic year. This covers the cost of academic tutoring, travel, event organisation, and publication development. 

Find out more about our work on higher education, and the most recent advocacy efforts of the students, including a roundtable discussion on inequalities in French higher education (in French).
