Dr. Barbara Perry is a Professor in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
Dr Perry is especially interested in the area of right wing extremism, which is very much under-represented among terrorism scholars. She has recently completed a Kanishka funded three year national study of right wing extremism in Canada. Her intent is to continue to explore the dynamics of white power activism over the next few years. Her project was among the very few contemporary studies in the area, so there is still a great deal of research and analysis to be done.
