- MIGS has postponed its annual #RightsCity Conference due to the pandemic. However, we are excited to announce that the Department of National Defence’s “Targeted Engagement Program” and the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy have both agreed to sponsor the event, which is set to take place this autumn.
- MIGS was recently awarded funding from Heritage Canada to convene stakeholders as part of the “Mapping Online Hate in Canada” project. MIGS also organized a series of interviews with Adama Dieng (UN Special Representative for the Prevention of Genocide), Chris Tuckwood (Founder of the Sentinel Project and HateBase), Zach Devereaux (Nexalogy), David Ouelette (The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs), and Ghayda Hassan (Professor of clinical psychology at UQAM).
- MIGS is pleased to announce its new student fellows: Daniel Twijuke and Emmanuelle Fahey. They are both second year Master’s students of the Public Policy and Public Administration Program at Concordia University.
