Dr. Julian Schofield

Dr. Julian Schofield’s research focuses on security and strategic studies in south and Southeast Asia. He is currently working on three major projects.  The first is a SSHRC-funded investigation of south Asian insurgency movements that looks at the relationship between secessionist groups and kin states.  The second project, also SSHRC-funded, examines state-directed proliferation, applying a balance-of-power model to analyze why states would deliberately choose to share their nuclear technology.  The third project, funded by the Department of National Defense, is an investigation of the relationship between Pakistan and Afghanistan and builds upon Dr. Schofield’s earlier work by focusing on trade relations between the two countries, a relationship he views as integral to Canadian military efforts in Afghanistan.
