The Summer Academy is designed to foster a comprehensive understanding of radicalization, terrorism, security and how all of these are situated in the context of a rapidly changing Canadian society.
Beyond supporting research and dissemination, TSAS aims to cultivate a new generation of well-informed individuals across several kinds of institutions. The Summer Academy is a principal part of this plan and brings together graduate students, civil servants, law enforcement officers, and members of non-governmental organizations from across Canada to participate in a highly focused learning experience. The Summer Academy is designed to introduce a comprehensive understanding of radicalization, terrorism, and security and how all of these are situated in the context of a rapidly changing Canadian society.
