Stanislas Richard's primary research interest is the broadly understood concept of labour, that he explores with the suspicion that most political theorists seem not to give it the conceptual place it deserves.
His doctoral dissertation attempts to create a liberal theory of exploitation based on structural injustice. His side projects include the politics of labour by and large - the issue of its representation, its characteristics as a class, its history as a concept, and above all, its re-integration in disputes about justice and democracy. In the academic year 2017-2018, he served as the Chair of the POLEMO research group. He will be a guest lecturer at the University of Yangon, Myanmar, from December 2018 to March 2019.
Stan holds an undergraduate degree “Licence” in Political Science from University of Lyon (France) with an exchange year at the University of Hong Kong, and a Master of Science in Political Theory from the London School of Economics. After a short period in the corporate world, he enrolled at CEU Doctoral School of Political Science in 2016.
A (not so) long time ago he wanted to be an anthropologist, but never completed the degree in anthropology - also University of Lyon - that would have allowed him to achieve this dream. See enclosed academic CV for more details.
Stan was born in Paris and has French and Polish dual citizenship. In his free time, he is a hiker and a fencer, and his dearest dream is to play elephant polo.
