Antoine Rayroux, PhD
Assistant Professor, Political Science
Antoine Rayroux's research deals with the comparative foreign and security policies of European states, with a focus on how national and European Union (EU) peacekeeping policies and diplomatic practices interact with eachothers. His doctoral dissertation - now a book manuscript - looked at French and Irish security practices during EU military operations in Africa. In his current research project, which is funded by the FRQSC, he is interested in how EU diplomats manage Europe's reputation in Canada and the US, and how national diplomats from European countries react to EU diplomacy.
Antoine is a Research Associate at the European Union Centre of Excellence Montreal (Université de Montréal and McGill University). Prior to joining Concordia University, he has also been a Fulbright visiting researcher at Georgetown University.
