Étienne Chouard (born December 21, 1956 in Paris)[1][2] is a French economics and law teacher[3] and blogger.[4] During the 2005 French referendum campaign on the European Constitution he gained public attention by advocating against it,[5][6] notably for his discussion with Dominique Strauss-Kahn.[7]

Since then Chouard – who defines himself as a "seeker of the original cause of social injustices"[8] – has been working on different democratic systems and constitutions. He is a supporter of the idea of sortition[9] which could also be applied to constitutional conventions.[10][11]
