Claire Dupuy is Associate Professor of political science at Sciences Po Grenoble – Pacte (France). She specializes in comparative public policy with a focus on state transformations and regionalization processes in Western Europe. She is also interested in policy feedbacks and the ways in which policy changes impact on citizens’ (dis)affection toward politics. Empirically, she conducts research on education and social policy in France, Germany and Belgium.


Since June 2017, Claire Dupuy is a partner of Tropico, a H2020-funded consortium and leads the French team. Tropico aims to comparatively examine how public administrations are transformed to enhance collaboration in policy design and service delivery, advancing the participation of public, private and societal actors. Since October 2017, Claire Dupuy is also a member of RESTEP, a transatlantic network on the politicization of Europe funded by Erasmus + Program - Jean Monnet Network. Last, since April 2017, Claire Dupuy is the principal partner of Qualidem, a research project funded by an ERC starting grant. Together with Virginie Van Ingelgom ((F.R.S-FNRS, UCLouvain), principal investigator, and following up on their previous work, Qualidem aims to explain the evolutions of democratic linkages as being shaped by public policy, and specifically by the turn to neoliberalism and supranationalisation.


Claire Dupuy received her doctorate from Sciences Po Paris and University of Milan-Bicocca. She held postdoctoral positions at the Université de Montréal – CERIUM and Université catholique de Louvain – ISPOLE, and she was a Deakin Fellow at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford. She is currently a visiting professor at Université catholique de Louvain.
