Institut D'études Politiques De Lyon
The Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Lyon (or Lyon Institute of Political Studies) also known as Sciences Po Lyon, was established following an executive decree by General de Gaulle in 1946. This prestigious and highly selective institute is modeled on the former Paris "École Libre des Sciences Politiques" (ELSP). Like the other Sciences Po (instituts d'études politiques) in France (Aix-en-Provence, Bordeaux, Grenoble, Lille, Paris, Rennes, Strasbourg, Toulouse), it is considered as a French "Grande École" or elite school.
Sciences Po Lyon is an autonomous body within the University of Lyon. It is located at the Centre Berthelot within the buildings of a former military college. Its coat of arms is a lion, reminding force and the City of Lyon.
Confirming its status as of one of the top schools in France, Sciences Po Lyon has now established several strategic partnerships with key academic institutions at the national and international level. For instance, at the national level, with the ENS Lyon (École Normale Supérieure de Lyon) and the EMLYON Business School ; or at the international level, in Germany, with the Free University of Berlin ; in the United States, the University of California and the University of Pennsylvania ; in the United Kingdom, the King's College London, the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London ; in Japan, Waseda University.

Famous quotes containing the word lyon:
“... no other railroad station in the world manages so mysteriously to cloak with compassion the anguish of departure and the dubious ecstasies of return and arrival. Any waiting room in the world is filled with all this, and I have sat in many of them and accepted it, and I know from deliberate acquaintance that the whole human experience is more bearable at the Gare de Lyon in Paris than anywhere else.”
—M.F.K. Fisher (19081992)
