Grant Steering Committee

The Grant Steering Committee (GSC) is the central decision-making body for the Modern Treaty Implementation Research project. It will ensure the project meets its goals and objectives, finalize budget allocations to themes, review and approve all reporting to SSHRC, and provide a forum for information sharing and communication between each of the themes. The GSC is comprised of the Project Director (Chair), Theme Co-Leads, and administrative staff (ex-officio).
