Congratulations to 2006 Foundation fellow Jennifer Welsh, named Canada 150 Research Chair in Global Governance and Security! Focusing on the changing character and regulation of armed conflicts, Welsh and her team will analyze the impact of human rights norms – such as criminal accountability and the responsibility to protect – on the causes and conduct of war. A total of 24 Canada 150 Research Chairs have been appointed to fulfil Budget 2017’s intention to enhance Canada’s reputation as a global centre for excellence.

Currently a professor and chair in international relations at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, Welsh will join McGill University’s Department of Political Science and the recently inaugurated Max Bell School of Public Policy in January 2019. She will also serve as director of the Centre for International Peace and Security Studies, which brings together researchers from McGill and Université de Montréal on international relations and public policy issues.
