Research
François Gélineau is a Professor of Political Science at Université Laval. A specialist in Latin American politics, his reserach interests revolve around questions of voter turnout, electoral accountability, economic voting, and public opinion. Some of his prior research has looked at how the Michigan model of voting behaviour applies to Latin America. Professor Gélineau also holds the Research Chair on Democracy and Parliamentary Institutions at Université Laval.



Research Axis
Axis 2: Practicing Citizenship in a Skeptical World - The practice of democratic citizenship is undergoing a multifaceted transition. There are fundamental changes in conceptions of democratic citizenship and in its practice as well as the targets of citizen action. Scepticism about representative democracy as a system of governance is growing and citizens across established democracies are withdrawing from politics. Their perception about the political world is impacted by transformations in the news media practices and by online content, including social media. Voting and party politics have been the basis of conventional interpretations of citizenship, but there is ample evidence that this conception is much too limited. New forms of communication are providing citizens with novel ways to gather information and to engage in politics.
