À propos de moi

Pascal Lupien est associé au Campus Saint-Jean de l’Université de l’Alberta. Titulaire d’un PhD en sciences politiques et d’une maîtrise en études latino-américaines de l’Université de Guelph, il détient aussi une maîtrise en sciences de l’information de l’Université de Montréal et un baccalauréat ès Arts de l'Université McGill. Les intérêts de recherche du Dr Lupien portent sur l’innovation démocratique, la société civile, la communication politique, ainsi les facteurs qui renforcent ou diminuent la capacité des communautés marginalisées à participer à la vie politique. Son livre, « Citizens ’Power in Latin America: Theory and Practice » (SUNY Press, 2018), examine comment les communautés locales utilisent les mécanismes de démocratie participative pour atteindre des objectifs collectifs de développement social. Ses projets de recherche actuels examinent l’impact des technologies de l’information et des communications (TIC) sur la capacité des organisations représentant les minorités autochtones et noires d’Amérique latine à participer à la vie politique, et l'utilisation des médias sociaux par les minorités francophones hors-Québec pour la communication politique. 

Pascal Lupien is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean. He received his PhD in Political Science and his M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Guelph, and holds a Master’s in Information Studies from the Université de Montréal and a B.A. in Politics from McGill University. Dr. Lupien’s research interests revolve around democratic innovation, civil society, political communication and technology, and the factors that enhance or diminish the capacity of marginalized communities to participate in politics. His book, Citizens’ Power in Latin America: Theory and Practice (SUNY Press, 2018), looks at how local communities use participatory democracy mechanisms to pursue collective social development goals. Dr. Lupien’s current research projects consider the impact of information and communications technologies (ICTs) on the capacity of organizations representing Indigenous and Black minorities in Latin America to engage in politics, and the use of social media by francophone minorities outside of Québec to engage in effective political communication.
