Brief Biography

Philippe studies political violence, intrastate conflict and institution-building in deeply-divided societies and specializes in the internal politics of armed organizations. His regional expertise is in Central and Eastern Europe, particularly the Balkans. His dissertation, entitled Intra-party divisions, combatant fragmentation and civil war persistence in the Bosnian and Croatian conflicts (1991-1995) examines the sources and consequences of warring party fragmentation. He has a two-year fieldwork experience in the Former Yugoslavia derived from extensive interviews with combatants and warring party officials. Philippe has used extensively ethnographic and fieldwork intensive research techniques as well Qualitative-Comparative Analysis (QCA). He is a member of the SSHRC Insight Grant-funded project The Politics of Complex Diversity in Contested Cities which analyses the interaction of historical communities and immigrant arrival in ethnically divided cities. Philippe is a Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholar (SSHRC) and has received  funding from the Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS) and the Fond de recherche québécois sur les sociétés et les communications (FRQSC).
