Grégoire Mallard is Professor in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology and co-director of the Executive Master in “International Negotiation and Policymaking” at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (Geneva). He is the author of Fallout: Nuclear Diplomacy in an Age of Global Fracture (University of Chicago Press, 2014) and Gift Exchange: The Transnational History of a Political Idea (Cambridge University Press 2019). He is also the co-editor of Contractual Knowledge: One Hundred Years of Legal Experimentation in Global Markets (Cambridge University Press 2016), and Global Science and National Sovereignty: Studies in Historical Sociology of Science (Routledge 2008). His other publications focus on prediction, the role of knowledge and ignorance in diplomacy and the study of harmonization of legal regimes as a social process (see http://www.gregoiremallard.com). In 2017, he has been the recipient of an ERC starting grant (2017-2022) for his new project titled Bombs, Banks and Sanctions.
Florence Bernault, discussant, Centre d'Histoire de Sciences Po
Florence Bernault a été nommée professeur des universités à Sciences Po en histoire de l'Afrique subsaharienne.

Agrégée d’histoire et ancienne élève de l’Ecole normale supérieure de St-Cloud, titulaire d'un doctorat obtenu à l’université de Paris-Diderot sous la direction de Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch en 1994, elle a enseigné à l’Ecole normale supérieure de Fontenay-St-Cloud comme maitre de conférences en histoire contemporaine (1994-1996), puis aux Etats-Unis depuis 1996. Elle était précédemment professeur de rang magistral au Département d’histoire de l’Université du Wisconsin à Madison où elle ensiegnait l’Afrique contemporaine.

Ses travaux de recherche portent sur l’histoire politique et culturelle de l’Afrique centrale et équatoriale, et sur les transformations survenues pendant et après la période coloniale. Une perspective de longue et moyenne durée lui permet d’ancrer ces dynamiques à la fois dans l’histoire immédiate et dans une connaissance détaillée de la période du XVIIIe et XIXe siècle.
Jérôme Sgard, discussant, Centre de Recherches Internationales (CERI)
Jérôme Sgard holds a PhD in Economics from Université de Paris-Nanterre. He joined Sciences Po (CERI) in 2008, first as a Research Professor, then as a Professor in Political Economy (2012). Sgard's research interests revolve around the construction and regulation of markets as seen from the micro-level and historical perspective. Hence the interest for the dispute-resolution dimension and for the direct interactions between economic agents and regulators: judges, arbiters, bureaucrats, IMF officials, etc. Empirical objects include sovereign debt restructuring, private bankruptcies, or the development of early industrial policy in 18th-century France. His current research project concerns the history of international commercial arbitration (1880-1980), about which he is preparing a book.
