A first year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Studies, Philippe Roseberry received his undergraduate education in political science at Université Laval (Quebec City) and earned a Master of Arts, also in political science, at the University of Ottawa, where he also coordinated the activities of the Chair of Ukrainian Studies. He rapidly developed an interest for the study of political violence in Eastern and South-eastern Europe. His M.A. thesis, a case-study of the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina (1991-95), discussed the representation of the conflict of third-party interveners as a primordial ethnic conflict and the impact of such representations on key peace plans. The thesis also indentified a number of analytical flaws of instrumental approaches to the study of identity-based conflicts and suggested instead a greater focus on the micro-dynamics of intra-group competition. His Ph.D. thesis will examine a number of intrastate conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and in the Post-Soviet area with an eye on intra-group competition and fractionalization.
Philippe is a Joseph-Armand-Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholar (SSHRC) and has received awards from the Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS), the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC), as well as a SSHRC Master's Scholarship.
