BiographyTim joined Laurier in 2008, after having taught for four years in the political science department at the University of Windsor. He received his PhD from Toronto's York University in 2003. His research focuses on post-conflict peacebuilding, and he is currently engaged in a multi-year research project, funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, examining issues of ‘local ownership’ in peacebuilding processes. The project, which focuses on the relationship between international and local actors in post-conflict contexts and on broader issues of authority and legitimacy in the making and implementation of policy in the aftermath of conflict, explores the dynamics of ownership in contemporary Bosnia, Haiti, and Afghanistan. Tim is the author of The Political Economy of Peacebuilding in Post-Dayton Bosnia (Routledge, 2005) and, more recently, the editor of Local Ownership and Security Sector Reform (Lit Verlag, 2008).
