Participation and Citizenship(s)

The Canada Research Chair in Participation and Citizenship(s) seeks to explore the links between forms of participation and the individual, collective and relational trajectories of the construction of citizenship(s) from a comparative perspective. The objective is to better understand from a theoretical point of view the institutional and emerging forms of participation, and their interactions with the processes of inclusion and (re)definition/transformation of the boundaries of this citizenship.


Under the tenure of Françoise Montambeault, Professor at the Department of Political Science of the University of Montreal, the research falls within the field of comparative politics. They are interested in civic participation, democracy, social inclusion, expanding access to citizenship rights and redefining the boundaries of citizens' membership in political communities.
