Thanks to the Qualidem project funded by the ERC Mauro Caprioli is currently at the ‘Centre Émile Durkheim’ of Sciences Po Bordeaux for a three-month research stay within the framework of his thesis. Working under the mentorship of Sophie Duchesne who is a member of his thesis committee and of the Qualidem project’s scientific committee, will provide the opportunity to further advance his research by bringing him in to contact with a diverse, international and multidisciplinary research environment and giving the opportunity to participate to various research seminars and workshops organized at the centre. Working here will allow his research to benefit from Sophie Duchesne’s expertise on nationalism, the EU, French and UK politics, qualitative methodology. Given prof. Duchesne’s involvement as a primary researcher in some of the qualitative datasets Mauro is re-analysing, his stay also provides a unique opportunity to enrich his qualitative interpretative, longitudinal, and diachronic analysis of changes in Belgian, French and UK citizens’ relationship towards politics. More specifically, this will allow for a deeper and more grounded understanding of France and French citizens’ relation to politics.
