OTTAWA, ON – The Canadian Global Affairs Institute (CGAI), along with Women in Defence and Security (WiDS), is proud to announce Dur-e-Aden as the recipient of the 2019 CGAI-WiDS professional development Fellowship
Dur-e-Aden is a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at University of Toronto. Her major fields are International Relations and Comparative Politics. Her PhD research focuses on comparing the recruits and non-recruits within the radical (far-right and Islamist) groups in Canada through a gendered lens. Her dissertation asks the following question: what stops someone from joining a radical group, even when all the risk factors are present? She is a SSHRC CGS Doctoral Scholar, a Junior Affiliate at the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society (TSAS), and a Graduate Associate at University of Toronto’s Centre for Critical Development Studies.
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.
