Mallory Haggith is a graduate student in the Master of Arts in Global Governance program at the Balsillie School of International Affairs. She holds a Bachelor of Global and International Studies degree from Carleton University, where she specialized in Global Law and Social Justice. Her research interests include security, strategic studies, conflict, post-conflict, and peacebuilding.
Throughout her undergraduate degree, Mallory had the opportunity to study disciplines ranging from global history and global economics to global literature and global ethics. The global perspective Mallory resultantly acquired influenced her to work with both local and international non-profit organizations to explore and address global issues. During her final year, Mallory notably worked alongside the Women’s Foundation Nepal, a foundation comprising young women activists, to address ‘period poverty’ and other issues related to women’s health and security.
Passionate about security, her extracurricular engagements led her to WIIS. WIIS is a global organization that advances the leadership and professional development of women in the field of security. Mallory became the WIIS Carleton Chapter Vice President and helped to organize events, including panels on misinformation and disinformation and the recent Russia-Ukraine war. Mallory was also an Editor for the Kroeger Policy Review, a student-led public policy platform, where she edited policy and opinion pieces related to social and foreign policy, including security policy.
While at the BSIA, Mallory hopes to gain and share knowledge related to contemporary global governance, particularly global security, to better understand the connection between global governance and climate change, migration, poverty, and other prevalent global issues.
