Join us !



Quai aux fleursConventions born in 2010 and is the product of a partnership between  “la Direction générale de la mondialisation” of the The Ministry of Foreign Affairs et l’Institut des hautes études sur la justice. Conventions is an independent think tank funded by both public partners and private partners.



Our partners include institutions (le Centre européen de Droit et d’Économie de l’ESSEC, le Conseil supérieur du notariat, la Fondation Charles Leopold Mayer), companies (Orange, Atos, Alstom) and law firms (Derains & Gharavi, Soulez Larivière & Associés, Kelley Drye, Skadden, Navacelle, Lebray & Associés). By supporting the initiative, they not only show their interest in our work, but they also participate in our meetings and events.

Finally, they are a force of proposal and inspiration, contributing to the direction of our work program.
