Professional Information

Emmanuel worked for the French public sector for 10 years, including postings with the French Small Business Administration and the Nord Pas-de-Calais Regional Council. In both capacities, he worked with the European Commission and the European Union Directorate for Regional Policies in Brussels. Prior to his appointment at UVic, Emmanuel was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario from 1999-2000, and Assistant Director of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies at the University of Notre Dame from 2000-2001.

Emmanuel joined the UVIc School of Public Administration in 2001. He was the Jean Monnet Chair in European Urban and Border Region Policy (2014-16), and currently, he is the Jean Monnet Chair in Innovative Governance (2017-20). Also, he is the director of the Borders In Globalization research program (2013-20), and Director of the European Union Jean Monnet Center and the Jean Monnet Network research programs (2013-19) as well.

Emmanuel welcomes students with interests in complex policy and governance issues, such as, the governance of policies straddling international boundaries (custom, ecological, migration, regulatory, security, as well as, urban, regional, planning and transportation governance policies), and, the governance of Canadian policies affecting First Nations in the post Truth and Reconciliation era (such as intergovernmental relations across policy arenas, but also government and self-determination).

Also, in collaboration with Birte Wassenberg (Science Po. Strasbourg), Emmanuel welcomes Ph.D. candidates in Border Studies at UVic (currently developing an MA, and Ph.D. in co-tutelle, for those purposes).
