Documents de travail de TSAS

UBC Virtual Library

TSAS accepte les documents de travail de chercheurs canadiens (membres du corps professoral, étudiants diplômés, et post-doctorants) qui étudient les questions du terrorisme, sécurité et société. Nous acceptons aussi les articles de chercheurs à l’extérieur du Canada qui travaillent sur ces questions, sous réserve que leur travail a des liens solides au Canada (par exemple, une analyse comparative qui comprend le Canada et un ou plusieurs autres pays), ou études qui explorent des questions de politique très préoccupante au Canada et qui expliquent leur pertinence. Malheureusement, nous n’avons pas la capacité d’examiner et de traiter les documents de travail de chercheurs internationaux qui sont exclusivement sur des sujets qui ne concernent pas le Canada.

Documents de travail de TSAS sont accompagnés par des notes d’information politique et se trouvent dans la bibliothèque numérique du TSAS.

Plusieurs projets ont été sélectionnés pour financement par TSAS. Ces documents de travail sont actuellement en cours et sera publiées dans la bibliothèque numérique. Les projets peuvent etre trouveés comme projets actuellement financés.
