Visitors to the Chair

Seong-gee Um (Postdoctoral Fellow: 2013-)

Seong-gee Um (Ph.D., University of Toronto) is a Postdoctoral Fellow affiliated with the Canada Research Chair in Citizenship and Governance at Université de Montéal. She holds a two-year postdoctoral fellowship from fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC). Her research broadly centers on the intersections of gender, class, and race/ethnicity for understanding the changing dynamics of social inequalities. Her doctoral thesis explores how care labour of migrant workers is being constructed through the intertwined social and political processes in South Korea’s shifting long-term care sector. Her research findings illuminate the roles and relations of the state, the employers, and the workers in producing a huge migrant workforce in South Korea`s elder care market, in which migrant workers are placed at the bottom due to their gender, age, and immigration status. During her postdoctoral fellowship, Seong-gee will develop a comparative research project on migration of care labour into East Asia. She will explore how East Asian welfare states construct and re-construct the movement of female reproductive labour within Asia through changing social policies at the intersection of care, (im)migration, and labour market.

Sophie Schram (PhD candidate: 2014-2015)

Sophie Schram is a doctoral researcher affiliated with the faculty of political science at Trier University (Germany) and associated with the Canada Research Chair in Citizenship and Governance at Université de Montréal. Her research interests broadly center on the dynamics between borders and globalisation, regional integration, multilevel political systems, and the politics of ideas in the European Union and Canada. In her PhD, she investigates the complex interplay between economic globalisation and the affirmation of national interests in the Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement currently negotiated between Canada and the European Union. Reaching beyond the dichotomy between interest-based and ideational approaches, she contends that political actors can use ideas strategically. She develops a framework of investigation based on framing theory and applicable to multilevel systems.

Sophie is on a three-year doctoral fellowship from the German Research Council (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) to complete her doctoral research within the International Research Training Group “Diversity” based in Germany and Montréal, and associated with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. She holds university degrees in European Studies and Intercultural Communication from the LSE London, the FU Berlin, Saarland University and Université de Lorraine, and has on-site experience in the field of cross-border cooperation and political assistance in France, Germany, Luxembourg, and the European Union.

Andrew Dawson, Postdoctoral Fellow, 2011-2013

Andrew Dawson is a Postdoctoral Fellow affiliated with both the Canada Research Chair in Citizenship and Governance and the Centre for International Studies at the Université de Montréal, holding both FQRSC and CÉRIUM Postdoctoral Fellowships.  He completed his doctoral research in the Department of Sociology at McGill University in 2011.  His primary areas of research expertise are political sociology, international development, ethnic and political violence, and comparative historical research.  The common thread that ties these areas together is an overarching interest in the factors that influence development in the Global South.  Specifically, he has pursued a cross-national research program that uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to examine the causes and the consequences of the rule of law and the determinants of ethnic and political violence.

His dissertation research investigates the determinants of the rule of law in lower-income post-colonial societies by comparing Jamaica and Barbados, two countries with many important similarities, but with divergent outcomes concerning the rule of law.  His overall findings identify ethnic diversity, political culture and state legitimacy as factors that help explain the divergent trajectories of the rule of law in Jamaica and Barbados.

While at the Université de Montréal, Andrew will build on his dissertation research towards a broader analysis of the determinants of the rule of law in the Global South.  This will be done through conducting a historical case study of the rule of law in Haiti – a country with one of the lowest levels of the rule of law in the Americas – and a cross-national statistical analysis on the impact of political culture on the rule of law.

Sylvain Lefèvre

Sylvain Lefèvre, visiting researcher, 2007-08


Sylvain Lefèvre is a doctoral candidate in political science at CERAPS, the Université Lille (France).  He is currently writing his thesis, "Mobiliser les gens, mobiliser l’argent:  les ONG au prisme du modèle entrepreneurial".  To analyse the use of retail practices (marketing and management) by associations and activists, his thesis combines an ethnographic inquiry and interviews with NGOs, fundraising agencies as well as local volunteers at Greenpeace and Handicap International.  Sylvain’s thesis also emphasizes the development of fundraising techniques that incorporate ‘direct dialogue’ (using professionals to solicit regular and automatic donations from individuals passing by), which have been adopted by numerous NGOs in France and will soon be by NGOS in Quebec.  Sylvain’s research covers the sociology of mobilization, the sociology of economics and the study of career and professional activists.

After completing his undergraduate studies at Sciences Po (Rennes, 2002) and his graduate studies at Science Politique (Lille, 2003), Sylvain worked as a research coordinator and monitor to graduate students (2003-2006) as well as temporary teaching and research assistant (Lille, 2006-2007).  From 2003 to 2006, he was a member of the research program "Actions collectives, mobilisations et militantismes" (IFRESI, CLERSE, CERAPS, Lille), consisting of sociologists, historians and political scientists working on political engagement in parties, unions and NGOs.

Fabien Desage

Fabien Desage, visiting researcher, 2005-2006

Fabien Desage, visiting researcher, 2005-2006

Fabien Desage has a doctorate in political science from Lille 2.  A member of the Centre de recherche administratives politiques et socials, Fabien thesis was entitled "Le ‘consensus’ communautaire contre l’intégration intercommunale.  Séquence et dynamiques d’institutionalisation de la communauté urbaine de Lille (1964-2003)".

His thesis focused on the atypical modes of government in inter-communal institutions in France, linking municipal representatives to the ensemble of partisan formations.  It takes a micro-sociological and socio-historical lenses to the institutionalization process in the urban community of Lille, covering its genesis brought about by reformers in the 1960s until its consolidation in the form of a ‘régime de «consensus»’, which was a term used by elected representatives to qualify inter-partisan accords.  The thesis sheds light on the practical conditions of domestication by the mayors of successive reform governments.  The ‘consensus’, far from leading to the reinforcement of the normative capacity of CUDL, consequently seems the principal vector of its maintenance under municipal dependence and in talks about democratic deficit.  During his post-doctorate, Fabien is interested in the evolutions of municipal governments in Montreal and the successive reforms of its political and administrative organizations, including recent mergers and de-mergers.

Fabien’s research interests include reform and metropolitan public policies, the changing dynamics and institutional integration of federal-type structures, the exchange conditions of political regimes of great coalitions and the processes of depoliticization of local public action.

Éléonore Lépinard

Éléonore Lépinard, visiting researcher, 2005-2006

Éléonore Lépinard received her doctorate in sociology from the Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales (Paris).  Her thesis, L’égalité introuvable. Stratégies de légitimation et mise en œuvre de la parité politique en France, considers debates within feminism and within the public space leading to the adoption of political parity.  Through a detailed analysis of the European genealogy of this idea as well as the positioning of feminist activists, intellectuals and politicians, Éléonore’s thesis enters into debates about reform and shows how the equal revindication, achieved between the tension of particularlism and universalism, between recognition of groups and individual representation, tried, without reaching that point, to transform the republican model.

During her post-doctorate at the Chair, Éléonore will begin a comparative study of the tensions between rulings in favour of the rights of women and of minorities in France and Quebec.  More specifically, she is interested in debates around Charia law in Ontario and about the veil in France.

Éléonore was a Fulbright Fellow at the Institute for Research on Women at Rutgers University in the United States (2003-2004).  Her research focused on gender and politics, more particularly quota policies favouring the political representation of women in a comparative lenses, as well as feminists’ claims-making strategies and anti-discriminatory policies.

Kristoff Talin

Kristoff Talin, visiting researcher, 2005-2006

Kristoff Talin, visiting researcher, 2005-2006

Kristiff Talin has been a visiting researcher at the Department of Political Science of the Université de Montréal since August 2004. Kristoff obtained his doctorate in political science and was a researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France).  Over 15 years, he has analysed the links between religion and politics in Western countries.  Kristoff’s research increasingly considers the links between religious women and politics.  During the last several years, he has studied electoral behaviours and analysed public opinion in Europe and in a longitudinal perspective.  The manner in which public opinion about this can be measured and taken into account by European institutions constitutes the other part of his research.  In light of obvious failures – as the referendums in France and the Netherlands demonstrate – national governments and European organizations must increasingly take into account public opinion in policy-making.  This reality puts governing according to public opinion on the agenda.  The ensemble of his research consists of three parts:

  1. To promote analyses supported by political sociology, which privilege engaging European citizens in considering who they are, what they think and their relations to the European Union.  It is therefore about political sociology ‘by the bottom’, which is a useful compliment to those of elite decision-makers.
  2. To use quantitative methods to take into account comparatively the evolutions of public opinion.
  3. To make studies of value systems an explicative instrument, which is privileged in policy analysis and choice


Kristoff’s recent publications in political sociology include:

The scholarship also permits Marylène to spend some time at the Université de Montréal where she can gain access to literature in English and make links to researchers working on gender and municipal politics, such as the CAFSU.

From February 2000 to March 2003, she was a research assistant for an inquiry financed by the European Commission, "Genre et gestion locale du changement dans sept pays de l’Union éuropéenne", which focused on the place of women in local power relations and the impact of their present on public policies.
