Isabella Sellar Voll

Isabella is a PhD student at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, with a specialization in Global Justice and Human Rights. Her research interests are focussed broadly on the topic of genocide, and include examining the issues of contested histories, memory, and remembrance in the context of atrocity.

Isabella received a BA Honours in International Studies from University of Saskatchewan. After working in the non-profit sector for several years, Isabella switched gears in 2018, completing a Master of Arts in Religion, Culture and Global Justice at Wilfrid Laurier University. Following this, she completed a Master of Arts in Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs through the University of Waterloo. Isabella is excited to be returning to Balsillie in the fall to continue her research in the Global Governance PhD program.
