Bauer in 2011

Alain Bauer (born 8 May 1962) was elected professor of criminology at the National Conservatory for Arts and Crafts (CNAM Paris) and a senior research fellow at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice (New York) and the University of Law and Political Science of China (Beijing).[1] There were many protests in the scientific community in France against the appointment because he had not received a Phd.[2]

As an elected student on the "U.N.E.F. I.D." list, a socialist organization,[3] he was the youngest vice president of the Sorbonne in charge of Finances and Administration, an office he held from 1982 to 1989. Afterwards, he became an advisor on national security to Prime Minister Michel Rocard from 1988-1990.[4]

Bauer was elected Professor of Criminology at the National Conservatory for Arts and Crafts under CNAM in Paris in 2010.[5]

He is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. In 2006 and 2007, he has been appointed at the French Commission on police data control and of the French Working Group on Policing. He also worked as an advisor to the NYPD, the LASD and the Sûreté du Québec (Canada).

He was appointed in August 2007 by President Nicolas Sarkozy to reorganize the French system on studies and research on security and strategy, focusing on the creation of a National Security Council.

Bauer was also an advisor for the French industrial company Lafarge between 2007 and 2014[6].
