About

Dimitri Courant received his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Lausanne and the University Paris 8 in June 2022. Starting in September 2022, he will be a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University. He is a democracy visiting fellow at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School. He holds a master’s degree in political science from Sciences Po Rennes and a master’s in social sciences from the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences. His research focuses on deliberation, representation, democracy, and sortition. His qualitative fieldwork inquiry compares several case-studies, especially: the Irish Citizens’ Assemblies (Ireland); the Citizens’ Convention for Climate, and the National Great Debate (France). His recent publications include: “Institutionalizing deliberative mini-publics? Issues of legitimacy and power for randomly selected assemblies in political systems” (2022); “Citizens' Assemblies for Referendums and Constitutional Reforms: Is There an ‘Irish Model’ for Deliberative Democracy?” (2021). During his fellowship year at Princeton, Courant will focus on citizens’ assemblies on climate change in an international comparative perspective.
