The Foundation celebrates engagement in public issues of importance to Canadians
The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation congratulates this year’s recipients of its prestigious research fellowships.

Ms. Paskal specializes in geopolitics, particularly the geopolitical, security, and economic implications of environmental change (including climate change), as well as Arctic and Pacific security. She has worked extensively to build bridges between academia, government, the defence/intelligence communities, and civil society in order to better understand, explain, and resolve global challenges.
