John David More, PhD in History of Pre-Confederation Canada, supervised by Professor Jane Errington.

John David More, PhD in History of Pre-Confederation Canada, supervised by Professor Jane Errington. Topic: French-Canadian Mariners on Canada’s Fourth Coast During the Early Post-Conquest era, 1760-1815. Overview: Thousands of Canadien mariners, including shipmasters, officers, sailors, boatmen and shipbuilders were essential to the successful defense of Quebec and Upper Canada during American invasions of 1775-6 and 1812-14. My research into their complex histories deepens our understanding of French-English relations during this crucially important period in Canadian History..

Luissa Vahedi, MSc in Epidemiology, supervised by Dr Susan Bartels and Dr Heather Stuart.

Topic: ‘Even Peacekeepers Expect Something in Return’: An Exploratory Cross-Sectional Analysis of Sexual Interactions Between UN Peacekeepers and Haitian Citizens. Overview: In 2004, the United Nations (UN) Security Council established Resolution 1542: The United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). MINUSTAH officially began in June of 2004 and ended in October 2017, making it the longest UN peace operation in Haiti. During this time, allegations of sexual interactions between male UN peacekeepers and female Haitian civilians, including sexual abuse and exploitation, surfaced in the media. The UN frames civilian-peacekeeper sexual interactions as inherently exploitative and abusive, thereby supporting a zero-tolerance policy on sexual interactions with beneficiaries of assistance. However, during MINUSTAH civilian-peacekeeper sexual interactions were widespread and, in some cases, conceived children fathered by peacekeepers born to Haitian women- known as peace babies. The UN does not claim responsibility for children fathered by peace keepers, resulting in Haitian women bearing the burden of establishing the paternity of their children. My research will examine community-level narratives of sexual relationships between Haitians and United Nations (UN) peacekeepers during the MINUSTAH. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, this thesis will aim to: (1) Understand the lived experiences of Haitian women who are raising peace babies conceived Continue Reading
