Île-de-France region suspends funding to Sciences Po due to antisemitism in pro-Palestinian protests

The Paris region authority temporarily suspended funding for Sciences Po, one of the country’s most prestigious universities, after it was rocked by tense pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel demonstrations.

“I have decided to suspend all regional funding for Sciences Po until calm and security have been restored at the school,” said President of the Regional Council of Île-de-France Valérie Pécresse.

She took aim at “a minority of radicalized people calling for antisemitic hatred” and accused hard-left politicians of seeking to exploit the tensions.
