OTTAWA — An expert in conflict resolution and international debt has been appointed the new director of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, one of Carleton University’s flagship programs.
Dane Rowlands began his five-year term on July 1. He replaces noted Canadian foreign policy and international security expert Fen Hampson, who is now the director of the global security research program at The Centre for International Governance Innovation.
Rowlands said Thursday the school’s mission is to prepare its roughly 250 graduate and PhD students to understand the complicated global environment at the policy level, as opposed to a strictly theoretical one.
