Camille is a doctoral student in Political Science at the University of British Columbia, and a Fellow of the Institute for European Studies. Her research focus is on processes of ethno-cultural diversity accommodation in Western liberal democracies. She is interested in drawing a hermeneutical comparison between Europe and North America to determine if different alliances between nation-building and ethno-cultural diversity accommodation influence micro experiences of immigrants’ integration.
Her main research interests are the development of a hermeneutical comparative politics, immigration systems, the ways that state-centred approaches to diversity accommodation can address non-state centred alternatives, and the analytical relation between ontological conceptions and epistemological choices.
Among diverse research projects, Camille has worked closely with the Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities of Québec to assess if different strategies of information sent to future immigrants abroad could have an impact on their subsequent economic integration in Québec.
