After graduating in political science and history at Université de Montréal and Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Lyon, Manuel completed a masters of social sciences at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris, France) under the directorship of Professor Pierre Manent. Having completed a thesis on American neoconservative foreign policy, he returned to Montreal as a PhD student at UQAM, where he is pursuing his research on neoconservatism, this time in the Canadian context.
