"Dr. Jeffrey (Jeff) F. Collins is a noted expert on Canadian defence procurement and defence policy. He maintains an active research presence with Canada's leading centres in foreign and defence policy, including with the Macdonald-Laurier Institute as an associate and, separately, as a fellow with Dalhousie University's Centre for the Study of Security and Development, and the University of Manitoba's Centre for Defence and Security Studies.  

Jeff’s publications are extensive and include dozens of reports and articles. His first book, “Reassessing the Revolution in Military Affairs” (Palgrave Macmillan) was published in 2015. A second book, titled “Canada’s Defence Procurement Woes”, will be out in 2021. Jeff has spoken on defence and foreign policy issues in Canada, the United States, and Russia. His education credentials include a PhD in Political Science from Carleton University, a MA in International Relations from the University of Birmingham, a law degree from the University of Aberdeen, and a BA and Certificate in Public Administration from Memorial University of Newfoundland. He is an Adjunct Professor in Global Affairs at the University of Prince Edward Island where he teaches graduate courses in international relations and security.

Outside of his research work, Jeff is the lead trade negotiator and advisor on international and domestic trade policy for the Government of Prince Edward Island. In recognition of his public service leadership, in 2020 he was awarded a Ministerial Medal for Public Policy Innovation. In 2019, he participated in the US State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program on US Foreign Policy Decision-Making. Prior to entering the PEI Public Service, Jeff worked as a political staffer in New Brunswick in 2012 and later in Ottawa, in 2012-14, in the offices of the Ministers of National Defence and, separately, Veterans Affairs. In this latter role he served as a policy advisor on files related to the cabinet committees on foreign affairs and security, social affairs, and Treasury Board.

Originally from Placentia, Newfoundland and Labrador he now lives near Charlottetown, PEI with his spouse, daughter and pets."
