Vincent Bélanger is a master’s student in International Affairs at Carleton University.
He has a considerable amount of work experience as a student in the national security field. The bulk of his work experience related to terrorism, security, and society was over at FINTRAC. There, he supported ongoing terror financing cases and led research and analysis on similar subjects. At NSIRA, while his work is not always related to terrorism, he works to hold departments that do counter-terrorism operations accountable.
Belanger is working on his master’s research dissertation under the supervision of Dr. Leah West on veterans adopting right-wing extremist ideologies in the West. He is passionate about research done on radicalization leading to violence.
