Professor Elizabeth Smythe wins President’s Research Award 2014

Posted on: Mar 2, 2014

Today at the Concordia Convocation Ceremony Professor Elizabeth Smythe was awarded the President's Research Award for 2014. The award is bestowed where a faculty member or group has, over a substantial period of time, made a consistent and significant research or scholarly contribution to their field. The researcher should have an international or national reputation for research and/or scholarly excellence. Recipients are selected as a result of a rigourous nomination and review process.

Dr. Smythe is known for her extensive research work in international relations, especially negotiations over trade and investment rules and the transnational social movements and other networks that try to influence them, including the World Social Forum. Her work has had an impact nationally and internationally, earning her a reputation as one of the most distinguised researchers in her field.

Faculty, staff, and administration at Concordia offer Dr. Smythe our warmest congratulations.
