Jean Philippe Gauvin's research focuses on two large questions. First, how does federalism affect public policy? His PhD dissertation focused on Canadian intergovernmental relations (IGR) and their structure. It argued that IGR are an important vector of public policy in Canada due to the importance of line department involvement in IGR meetings at multiple levels. His second question refers to how values influence individuals' political choices. Policymakers prioritize issues, taxpayers have policy and spending preferences, and voters make party choices. This second axis of research therefore aims at answering the following question: How does ideology shape political choice?
