Dimitri Thériault holds a master’s degree in international studies from the Institute for Advanced International Studies (Laval University) and a bachelor’s degree in economics and politics from Laval University. His master thesis focuses on the allocation of loans from the World Bank over three time periods: Cold War (1973-1990), post-Cold War (1991-2000), and post-September 11 (2001-2013). His findings supports the thesis that the events of 9/11 led the United States to use the World Bank in their national interests as during the Cold War but the Bank appears to have limited political considerations in the allocation of its loans after the collapse of the USSR and especially between 2001 and 2013. Currently, he is a briefing officer at Global Affairs Canada (GAC).
