PhD in political studies
As part of his doctoral (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris) and postdoctoral (Centre de recherche en éthique de l’Université de Montréal) research projects, he became interested in the challenges that ethnocultural pluralism poses for dominant representations, norms, and practices of citizenship. In addition to his rich research experience and teaching of political science, criminology, and philosophy, he worked as a volunteer in the intercultural field and completed graduate training in social and collective enterprise management (UQAM). Ever since his arrival at the IRIPI in April 2018, he has been committed towards the implementation of social innovation projects that aim to identify, explore, and reinforce diversity and inclusion levers. His action research projects notably cover immigrant regionalization, immigrant entrepreneurship (conventional and collective), and the development of inclusive practices (both in the workplace and in the collective decision making processes).
