Théodore Tallent

PhD Candidate

Theodore Tallent is a PhD student at the Center for European Studies and Comparative Politics (CEE) at Sciences Po since September 2022. He previously studied at Sciences Po, as both an undergraduate and postgraduate student at the School of Public Affairs (MA in European Affairs). In 2021-2022, he completed a MPhil in Environmental Policy at the University of Cambridge. His thesis, under the supervision of Florence Faucher and the co-supervision of Davide Luca (University of Cambridge), explores the impact of territorial cleavages on the formation of citizens' perceptions of climate policies. Mixing quantitative and qualitative methods and a comparative French-English approach, his thesis thus aims to understand the negative drivers of the acceptability of climate policies in certain territories and to contribute to the discussion around the "just transition" in Europe.

Theodore is also a Visiting Researcher affiliated with the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG), a research centre within the University of Cambridge specialising in the governance of environmental transitions
