Will Kymlicka, Canada Research Chair in Political Philosophy at Queen's, has received the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada's (SSHRC) highest research honour, the Gold Medal.

The Gold Medal is awarded to an individual whose sustained leadership, dedication and originality of thought have inspired students and colleagues alike. Will has won the medal for his groundbreaking work on the link between democracy and diversity which has advanced knowledge on models of citizenship and social justice within multicultural societies.

Ted Hewitt, President of SSHRC, writes: "Will Kymlicka is a world-leading scholar whose dedication and impact on both the academic and non-academic communities is evident in his many awards, as well as the translation of his numerous publications into 34 languages."
