PhD defense of Florence Vallée-Dubois

On 26 November 2021, Florence Vallée-Dubois publicly defended her doctoral dissertation “Growing old : Population ageing and democratic representation in Canada.” In her thesis, Florence theorizes about the consequences of population ageing for democratic representation. In the empirical chapters, Florence analyses age differences in Canadian’s preferences for government spending, voting in seniors’ residences and patterns of representation of seniors’ interests in Parliamentary speeches.

The jury was composed of Patrick Fournier, Laurie Beaudonnet, Ruth Dassonneville (co-supervisor), Jean-François Godbout (supervisor) and Sven-Oliver Proksch (U. of Cologne). The jury graded Florence’s doctoral thesis as “exceptional”. Congratulations Dr. Vallée-Dubois!
