Join us in celebrating our 2022 Mattei Dogan Foundation Prize winner

We are honoured to announce that the winner of this year’s biannual Mattei Dogan Foundation Prize in European Political Sociology, awarded in cooperation with the Mattei Dogan Foundation, is Olivier Fillieule of the University of Lausanne.

First awarded in 2007, this prize recognises major contributions to the advancement of political sociology, from scholars with an ensemble of outstanding scientific publications and constructive professional achievements.

We have created this short video to celebrate Olivier’s achievement. Please join us in congratulating him on his outstanding work!

About our winner

A professor of political sociology at the Institute for Political Studies of the University of Lausanne and senior researcher at the CNRS, Olivier Fillieule is a member of CRAPUL (Research Centre for Political Action) and LIVES (Swiss Centre of Expertise in Life Course Research).

He has conducted his research in four directions: the dynamics of social and political mobilisations; state management of social conflicts in democratic and authoritarian contexts, and internationalisation of modes of control; the sociology of commitment and activist careers, including disengagement; and the methodology of social movement studies.

His work has covered various empirical types of contentious politics, from 1968 to the campaigns on AIDS, from alter-globalist to environmental activism, from the Arab Spring to the Yellow Vests, and he has written and published widely in both French and English.

Our jury’s verdict

Particularly important are his contributions to the analysis of social movements and protest, including path-breaking research on street demonstrations as a repertoire of contention, the policing of protest, and the micro-dynamics of mobilizations…'
