Laurent Tessier

Laurent Tessier is a DPhil in history and anthropology of religion at the Ecole pratique des hautes études in Paris and at the Université de Montreal (QC, Canada). Graduated with a master’s degree in geopolitics and conflict mediation (Université catholique de l’Ouest, Angers, France) and passionate about the study of the place of religions in international relations, his thesis focuses on a historical and comprehensive approach to Christian Zionism in Canada and its influence on Canadian foreign policy from the mid-19th century to 2015. As a junior observer at the Pharos Observatory (Paris), Laurent also writes articles on cultural and religious pluralism in Canada and France.

To break with the gravity and heaviness of current events related to these various subjects of specialisation, he enjoys visiting art museums and historical sites, gardening, musical practice (piano and organ), and reading British detective mystery novels.
