A recent MA graduate from the Tri-University Graduate Program from Wilfrid Laurier Kayla Grant‘s area of interest lies in sovereignty issues surrounding international police work and cyber security.

Kayla’s research during her Masters examined the role of police in United Nations peacekeeping operations and sparked her interest in the role of police in an international capacity and their unique state building role in peace and security operations.

Kayla’s dissertation will focus on the difficulties faced by international policing agencies and the ensuing problems of national sovereignty.
