I am Samuel B.H. Faure, a lecturer in political science (Academia, LinkedIn, Twitter, Youtube) who lives in Paris (France), after having lived in Cambridge (USA), Montreal (Canada), Lyon and Lille (France).
I am currently a Temporary Lecturer and Research Fellow (ATER) at Sciences Po Lille, where I teach European Studies and International Relations Theories. I am also a Lecturer at Polytechnique School and a Research Associate at the SciencesPo‘s Center for International Research (CERI). In 2015, I was Visiting Fellow at the Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). In 2016, I obtained my PhD from SciencesPo, entitled « Varieties of Decision. The Dilemma of Defence Procurement in Europe: The Case of France from 1945 to the Present » and supervised by Prof. Christian Lequesne.
My main research interests lie in the realms of the politics of European Union (EU), the policies of defense and weaponry, and the « Practice Turn » in IR Theories (especially the work of Pierre Bourdieu and Norbert Elias). My first book, entitled Défense européenne: émergence d’une culture stratégique commune and published in 2016, is about the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). I have also published in European Security, Politique européenne and St Antony’s International Review.
