This project will involve the research of international development assistance policy in Canada. It will focus on two case studies: Lebanese Special Measures Program and the life of distinguished Canadian humanitarian Lewis Perinbam. This research would contribute to a better understanding of the history of international development assistance in Canada. The partners in this project are not-for-profit organizations focused on promoting education and community development.
This project will involve the research and production of micro-histories of non-profit humanitarian organizations based in Canada. By examining small moments in the foundation and work of these organizations, our goal is to contribute to a better understanding of the role of Canadian civil society organizations in international humanitarian programs. Our partners work in a variety of sectors (from refugees to resource extraction-based violence) and in a variety of countries (from Lebanon to DR Congo).
