Stanislas Richard 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.
He has an unfinished degree in cultural anthropology (university of Lyon), and professional experience in the private sector (human resources).
Stan's primary research interests are the political challenges of the so called “sharing economy”. More precisely, he is interested in how corporations like Uber, Lyft or Deliveroo challenge traditional understanding of exploitation and work - mostly (but not only) by increasing job insecurity and outsourcing their means of social control to the consumer.
His secondary interests include history of political thought from the French Revolution to 1945 (especially history of conservatism) and theories of political obligation, and he is an unconditional reader of Plato, Thomas Hobbes and Jürgen Habermas.
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.
