Sabrina Karim wins grant to study women in peacekeeping

Sabrina Karim

Sabrina Karim, assistant professor of government, has been awarded a grant to assess the barriers affecting women’s participation in military and police forces involved in peacekeeping missions.

The project is jointly funded by the governments of Canada and Norway and is part of Canada’s five-year Elsie Initiative for Women in Peace Operations, which aims to increase the number of women in United Nations peace operations. Karim’s project will help Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), a nonprofit international foundation dedicated to improving the security of states and people within a framework of democratic governance, create evidence-based policy and program recommendations to reduce barriers to the deployment of uniformed women.
