Transborder Threats and National Security

Christian Leuprecht


In collaboration with a number of federal departments and agencies, including Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), Public Safety (PS), the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), and the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the purpose of this project is to mobilize policy-relevant research to support evidence-based public policy and decision-making in relation to evolving transnational security threats and border integrity issues.  Areas of interest include global-democratic, climate-change, economic, and political trends for Canadian national security and border integrity in the areas of organized crime, terrorism and extremist political violence, undocumented/illegal migration, and cybersecurity.  The project's main objectives are: (i) to assess the current state of research in these fields; (ii) to enable federal departments and agencies to discuss their research needs and priorities with scholars who are participating in this initiative; (iii) to develop strategic research, capacity-building, and knowledge dissemination; and (iv) to discuss options for pursuing a policy-relevant research agenda.   For more information, contact Professor Leuprecht...
