Education

PhD (Université de Montreal)

I am a political scientist and an assistant professor of political science at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. I conduct research on immigration policy and politics in Canada, North America andAustralia. I am a co-founder of Concordia’s Centre for Immigration Policy Evaluation (CIPE). In 2016-2017, I was the recipient of the Concordia University Research Awards (“Person and Society”).  In 2017-2018, I am the William Lyon Mackenzie King Postdoctoral Fellow of the Canada Program at Harvard University’s Weatherhead Center or International Affairs.


My areas of research are immigration, public policy and public administration as well as Canadian politics (provincial politics and federalism) and other “settler societies”.  My work aims to contribute to broader theoretical and empirical debates, via comparison. The originality of my research agenda, and of my published work, lies on the examination of processes of immigration policymaking. To learn more about my work, please visit my website: https://mireillepaquet.net

I am interested in supervising graduate student research int he following areas: immigration policies and politics in Canada (provinces and federal), immigration public policy development and immigration policy implementation. Mireille est heureuse de superviser des étudiants en français et in English !
