000168643 520__ $$aIn this work we address one of the phenomenological issues  of beyond the Standard Model scenarios which embed  Supersymmetry, namely the Supersymmetric Flavour Problem, in  the context of String Theory. Indeed, the addition of new  interactions to the Standard Model generically spoils its  flavour structure which is one of its major achievements  since it for example leads to a very elegant understanding of  the absence of flavour changing neutral currents in the  leptonic sector and of the stability of the proton, thanks to  accidental symmetries. We focus on a subset of the  phenomenologically dangerous operators, namely the soft  scalar masses. One way out of the Supersymmetric Flavour Problem is to  geographically separate the observable and hidden sectors  along a fifth dimension, gravity being the only interaction  propagating in the bulk. In such scenarios, the soft scalar  masses are vanishing at the classical level since there is no  direct contact term between the observable and hidden  multiplets and tend to be universal at the loop-level.  However such setups hardly ever come about in String Theory,  which is one of the most promising candidates of quantum  gravity. In order to make contact with the five-dimensional  picture, we focus on the prototypical case of the  E8 × E8 Heterotic  M-Theory which, in a certain regime, effectively looks  five-dimensional and embeds matter fields on two  end-of-the-world branes. In these scenarios, not only gravity  but also vector multiplets propagate in the five-dimensional  bulk, effectively spoiling the sequestered picture. However, since the contact terms responsible for the  appearance of soft scalar masses arise due to the exchange of  heavy vectors, they do enjoy a current-current structure  which can be exploited to inhibit the emergence of soft  scalar masses by postulating a global symmetry in the hidden  sector. In order to assess the possibility of realising such  a mechanism, we first study the full dependence of the  Kähler potential on both the moduli and the matter  fields in the case of orbifold and Calabi-Yau  compactifications. We then determine whether an effective  sequestering may be achieved thanks to a global symmetry and  argue that whereas for orbifold models our strategy can  naturally be put at work, it can only be implemented in a  subset of Calabi-Yau models.
