Canadian Global Affairs Institute and Women in Defence and Security Announce Recipient of 4th Annual CGAI-WiDS Fellowship

Balsillie School of International Affairs PhD student Julie Clark receives 2021 CGAI-WiDS professional development Fellowship

OTTAWA, ON – March 4, 2021 – The Canadian Global Affairs Institute (CGAI), along with Women in Defence and Security (WiDS), is proud to announce Julie Clark as the recipient of the 2021 CGAI-WiDS professional development Fellowship.

Julie Clark is a Ph.D. Candidate in Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs through Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU). Her research focuses on the governance of nuclear weapons, and avenues for arms control and disarmament policies that address both humanitarian and national security concerns in the treaty negotiation processes. In 2020, she was designated as one of Women in International Security- Canada’s Emerging Thought Leaders for Gender and Security. Throughout her academic career, she has worked with a variety of NGOs, creating local and provincial interest in the importance of providing opportunities for others, specifically through education. As a member of the Hard of Hearing community, it is important to her that she continues to defy society's limitations, while also encouraging others to do the same. Julie graduated with a Master’s degree in History with a focus on Modern Korean History and North-East Asian Politics in 2015 and in 2016/7 she was an intern with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in Geneva, Switzerland.

The Canadian Global Affairs Institute would like to thank General Dynamics Mission Systems – Canada for their support of the fellowship as its patron sponsor.

The objective of the CGAI-WiDS Fellowship is to help develop the next generation of female Canadian defence and security leaders by providing them opportunities to build their network and advance their careers. The CGAI-WiDS Fellowship aims to advance the careers of women in defence and security by offering mentorship, work and research/analysis opportunities with the Canadian Global Affairs Institute, as well as access to our publications and resources. This collaboration annually selects female graduate or post-graduate students using the WiDS Annual Memorial Scholarship Process.

The Canadian Global Affairs Institute is a non-partisan, independent think tank that provides informed research, analysis and commentary on Canadian international policy.

Women in Defence and Security (WiDS) was established to promote and support the advancement of women in careers related to Canadian defence and security industries.
