Concordia University has been awarded a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Political Sociology of Global Futures, for Satoshi Ikeda, in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
Ikeda arrived at Concordia in July from the University of Alberta, where he compared the trajectories of 150 countries under globalization and examined sustainable agriculture in rural Alberta via the SARA Project. At Concordia, he will examine alternatives to the current global economy and politics dominated by the U.S.A. and global corporations.
Tier 2 chairs are for exceptional emerging researchers. For each Tier 2 Chair, the university receives $100,000 annually for five years.
