Professor John McGarry has been awarded the 2022 Pearson Peace Medal by The United Nations Association in Canada (UNA-Canada). 

Each year, the United Nations Association in Canada recognizes a Canadian's outstanding contributions to global peace through this honour. The medal is given to contributions which reflect the causes for which former Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson is remembered: 

  • mediation where conflicts arise;
  • assistance to refugees and populations in need;
  • equal rights and justice for all;
  • peaceful change through international law; and
  • multilateralism.

You can learn more about the award on the UNA-Canada website.
