Professor Robert Young – In Memoriam

The Canadian Political Science Association has lost a dear friend and valued colleague, with the death of Bob Young. Bob was President of the CPSA in 2003-04, and had a long and distinguished career at the University of Western Ontario. He was one of the nation’s leading scholars on Canadian federalism and also the significance of multilevel governance for public policy at the municipal level. He held a Canada Research Chair in Multilevel Governance and received a number of awards and distinctions for both research and teaching. He published extensively on federalism, provincial politics, municipal politics and social policy. He was also an important contributor to projects at the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations at Queen’s University. He was a regular participant at CPSA meetings and in addition to his outstanding contributions to research and service, will be fondly remembered for his good humour and as a witty conversationalist. We send our condolences to his family, colleagues and friends.

Janet Hiebert,
CPSA President

CPSA Statement on Central European University

The Canadian Political Science Association expresses its deep concern over the proposed legislative measures that threaten the current status of Budapest's Central European University. Societies thrive when institutions of higher learning exercise full academic freedom. We urge the Hungarian government to withdraw legislation that may imperil the integrity of Central European University and the protection of academic freedom in political science and other academic disciplines.

CPSA Statement on US Executive Order (Immigration)

The Canadian Political Science Association is deeply concerned with the executive order that was issued on Friday, January 27, 2017. The executive order bans entry into the United States for 90 days for travelers with citizenship from Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Yemen and bans travelers from Syria indefinitely.

Academic freedom is fostered through the exchange of knowledge and relies on conference travel, workshop participation, research partnerships, and conducting field work. This order has serious and immediate consequences for faculty and students travelling to the United States. Those who are denied entry now face strong barriers to pursuing their work. Our membership is diverse and includes faculty and students who are residents, refugees, dual citizens, and international students. These members make valuable contributions to their universities and the discipline of political science. The CPSA affirms its commitment to academic freedom and joins Universities Canada and the American Association of Universities in requesting that this ban "end as quickly as possible."
