Dr. Sfeir’s research and publications are in the areas of Cosmopolitanism, Multiculturalism, Diversity and Inclusion, Adult Education and Social Studies. She advocates for the revision of Canadian curricula, particularly social studies and history, to account for the voices of oppressed groups rendered invisible in Canadian social policies and curricula. Recently, she co-authored a chapter, Global Problems Require a Global Citizenry: The Case for Teaching Global Citizenship, in an edited book, Teaching Global Citizenship: A Canadian Perspective (2020, Canadian Scholars' Press). She serves on the executive editorial board of International Journal for Talent Development and Creativity and is a reviewer for the Common Ground Research Networks. She is currently completing a book manuscript with the proposed title: Cosmopolitanism and Canada's Growing Diversity: A Better Strategy Than Multiculturalism

She is a member of various academic and research and advocacy groups such as Quebec English-Speaking Communities Research Network (QUESCREN), the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES), The Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education (CASAE), Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE) and Montreal Council of Women (MCW). She was the recipient of Concordia Volunteer Recognition Award in 2012.
