Claire graduated from the University of Lausanne with a master’s degree in political science and a focus on political action. She joined FORS in 2023. Previously, she has been involved in student associations and political networks and organizations. Her activities aim to bring diversity to political discussions.


During her studies, Claire acquired skills in quantitative research. She regularly wrote about social movements, political ideals and voting behaviour. For her master’s thesis she analysed how the perception of success and wealth can impact political preferences. She finds the interplay between meritocratic ideals, the deservingness of wealth, and the political preferences attached to these beliefs particularly interesting.
