Research information:

I look at people's mobility inside and between states. This includes immigration (and related topics like foreign credential recognition), refugees (and statelessness and denationalisation), family reunification, detention, mobility-related technologies (like identity documents), relevant state and international law, colonialism, and historical as well as present barriers to mobility. Beyond this broad subject, I have experience with various aspects of social policy in the Middle East: health (particularly environmental and reproductive health), education (curriculum development), and sustainable development (water, wastewater, solid waste, noise and air quality, and occupational health).

Research information:

Dr. Rukhsana Ahmed’s research embraces the cross/trans/inter-disciplinary nature of communication scholarship, with specific focus on exploring the role of communication processes in improving health outcomes among marginalized communities and promoting broader social changes in international health contexts. She is particularly interested in the ways in which systems of beliefs, values, actions, and symbols are shared, or not, by people and how social groups influence communication in health care interactions. She is also interested in the ways in which people’s cultural selves become entwined with race, ethnicity, gender, and social class groups and shape their perceptions of health, illness, and health care. Although her research is deeply rooted in health communication, Dr. Ahmed is also actively involved in interdisciplinary and multisectoral projects and partnerships in other realms of communication, including immigrant integration, multicultural media, and religious diversity.

Research information:

I am a Canadian citizen of Syrian origin. Having lived half of my life in the Middle East and the other half in Canada I gained deep knowledge of both societies. I have been an advocate of cross-cultural diplomacy. Academically, I specialized in comparative foreign policy analysis, comparing Canadian and European Union Foreign policy in the Arab world - particularly democracy promotion and electoral assistance. I have been working as a policy analyst and consultant for more than ten years, then in 2014 I joined the University of Ottawa as a part time professor teaching courses on the Middle East and Arab Politics. However, my passion has always been at the community level which is why I joined the Rotary Club of Ottawa, where I have been championing my #Canadians4Refugees campaign. I published many articles and editorials on Canada's foreign policy in the Middle East and have been a frequent guest on this topic and on the Syrian refugee issue.

Research information:

In the Spring of 2015 I successfully defended and submitted my PhD thesis. My research analyses representations of Canadian, American and Australian military personnel, police and cadets involved in military 'sex scandals'. I explore the longstanding culture of misogyny, racism, homophobia and ableism in the Canadian, U.S. and Australian Armed Forces, with a focus on the ways 'militarized masculinity' is guided by these violent structures and fundamental to the military's creation of soldiers. My dissertation explores the ways blame is individualised in cases of sexual and racist violence involving military personel, while military culture and militarized masculinity are commonly celebrated without regard for how they are fundamentally violent.

Research information:

As an agronomist by training, with a PhD in genetics and plant breeding, I’ve worked in a wide array of contexts and countries. I have held long-term positions in Ivory Coast, Réunion Island, Canada, Brazil and France, as well as gone on missions in close to 40 countries. My scientific efforts have centred mostly on corn and sugar cane. Over time, given my responsibilities as a director of research, I became interested in the links between the social sciences and agronomics in general, with a special focus on the interaction between social dynamics, governance models and global transformations in rural settings.

Over the past four years, I worked as research and strategy director for CIRAD (Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement), which focuses on the prime issues surrounding the role of agriculture in southern hemisphere nations, both from the discipline’s traditional perspectives (production, transformation, food production and processing, etc.) and from its newer angles (environmental impact, ecological services, poverty reduction, land management, multi-functionality, etc.). At CIRAD, I played an active role in recasting and redirecting the research issues and scientific strategies of the major French, European and international centres and institutes in the field.

I specifically focus on understanding and improving the functioning of health systems and services in crises, and understanding public health statistics such as mortality and malnutrition during disasters and wars. I work as a field-based researcher in global public health, specializing in the assessment and mapping of disrupted health systems in post-conflict and post-disaster settings. My most recent work has involved operational field research in Haiti and Sudan, examining the development of health information systems used to assess the availability of essential health resources and services, including the mapping of health facilities. I have experience in the areas of surgical care, access to essential medicines, health systems strengthening, and health services research in several low- and middle-income countries.

I am also concerned with the nature of interaction or impact that intellectual property rights have in regard to developmental aspirations of marginalized peoples, especially indigenous and local communities across the globe. Most of my work focus on mapping and understanding the interface of intellectual property and development.
