Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

I received my PhD in Political Science (International Relations) from Queen’s University in 1993, and my MA in Political Science from UBC in 1985.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was the John M. Olin Fellow in Economics and National Security, at the Center for International Affairs, Harvard University (1992-93). I completed the Russian Studies certificate at Moscow State University, in 1995-96.
The main focus of my research is on post-conflict transitional justice, with particular focus on ‘local’ responses to ‘international’ projects and interventions. I have conducted field research in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Kosovo and Uganda, though I am interested in these issues on a global basis.
I continue to maintain interest in issues related to Canadian and U.S. security and defence policy, NATO, and defence industrial base policies.
I have been selected, for a third term, to serve as Executive Director of ACUNS (2013-18).
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of post-conflict peace building and transitional justice; UN peacekeeping; Canadian and U.S. defence policy; and international security.
