Centre for the Study of Democracy and Diversity

Working Papers

The Centre maintains an e-text and web-based publications program to disseminate original research on issues of democracy and diversity and to support its public education function. To foster dialogue and awareness of research among scholars at Queen's and beyond, it publishes research presented at conferences or in invited lectures at the University, occasional papers commissioned for its research projects, and working papers submitted by associated faculty and researchers interested in securing comment on research in progress.


Working papers must be based on original empirical research or syntheses of existing empirical research and pass an initial process of peer assessment. Authors submitting papers to csd@queensu.ca should include a statement demonstrating their connection to the subjects of the Centre’s research.
