SMU Doctoral Student Wins In National Policy Challenge

By Maroon & White | fall 2018

Chris Walker, doctoral candidate in the International Development Studies Department at Saint Mary’s University, is one of 10 winners of a national foreign policy challenge. The Global Affairs Canada / SSHRC 2018 International Policy Ideas Challenge invites Canadian graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and researchers to propose solutions to emerging international policy challenges faced by Canada. Chris proposed a policy brief that will analyze the foreign policy implications of using trilateral partnerships through South-South Cooperation (as opposed to the traditional bilateral Northern-to-Southern countries aid model) as a potential approach to international development.
