Vincent Millou is a Phd candidate in political theory at Sciences Po. He has been driven by a mounting frustration with mainstream theories of dissent ever since his first research on the struggle of Notre-Dame-des-Landes in Brittany for his master’s thesis. His dissertation focuses on the relationship between nonviolence and democratic government in France. This research aims at better understanding how dissent can be not merely repressed, but also sanitized.
Vincent taught an introduction to the humanities at Sciences Po as well as an introduction to political science at Paris-Sorbonne. He was also a teaching assistant to Daniel Mouchard for a course on the epistemology of political science.
