Françoise Montambeault becomes Chairholder of the Chaire de recherche du Canada Participation et Citoyenneté(s)
Françoise Montambeault, ÉRIGAL director, becomes Chairholder of the Chaire de recherche du Canada Participation et Citoyenneté(s) awarded by the Canada Research Chairs Program (SSHRC) 2019-2020. Congratulations!
The Research Chair's program can be divided into three main areas, around which the work of the Chair's team is organized:
1) citizenship and participatory policies, namely formal state instruments of citizen participation and their effects on inclusion and exclusion processes within citizenship regimes;
2) informal participation and the (re)definition of modes of social inclusion—essentially, non-institutionalized, less organized and more spontaneous or even individualized forms of citizen participation—that nonetheless constitute a mode of inclusion in political processes;
and 3) participation, citizenship(s) and international norms, which is concerned with the implementation of international norms and their effect on participatory practices and spaces at the domestic level.
First Chaire's event: lunch and learn with Rebecca Abers (Universidade de Brasilia) on "Social movements in response to the pandemic in Brazil", October 1st at 11:30am @ zoom.
