The new Network for Strategic Analysis, as part of the Department of National Defense’s Mobilizing Insights in Defense and Security (MINDS) program, has just been granted $750,000.
The Network’s principal mission is to mobilize research expertise to inform three main strategic challenges for Canada: (1) the evolving role of great powers in an uncertain world order; (2) multilateral security cooperation and the role of international organizations, and; (3) the future of defense capacity-building activities with global partners. Mobilizing this knowledge will allow to inform public debate and train the next generation of security and defense experts.
Co-directed by Justin Massie from UQAM and Stéfanie von Hlatky from Queen’s University, the Network for Strategic Analysis brings together 36 Canadian researchers. The Network includes 18 Canadian universities and a cluster of partners and experts committed to research excellence and policy relevance. Dr. Sarah-Myriam Martin-Brûlé of the Department of Politics and International Studies will be leading the second axis with her expertise on peace operations and security issues related to fragile states.
Dr. Martin-Brûlé’s research focuses on peace operations and security issues related to fragile states. She is committed to advancing knowledge and having an impact on the professional, local and global communities. She is currently working, among others, on how gender is a key factor in the United Nations (UN) peacekeeping intelligence and how it impacts the implementation of the UN mandates.
Congratulations to all members of the Network for Strategic Analysis for this grant.
