Emily Standfield is NAADSN’s Publishing Coordinator. In this role, Emily reviews and edits policy briefs and primers for publication. She is currently completing a post graduate certificate in Publishing from Centennial College. Emily received her Masters of Global Governance from the Balsillie School of International Affairs and a BA in Political Science from the University of Guelph.
Emily’s past research has focused primarily on security, conflict, and conflict resolution. Her undergraduate thesis considered the then-newfound reconciliation of Eritrea and Ethiopia and the factors that allowed for peace to occur. In her Masters Major Research Paper, she examined the role of sub-state identities and ethnicities in civil wars. During her graduate fellowship, Emily worked with Global Affairs Canada to produce a policy brief on outer space governance and resource extraction. Her background in the Canadian space sector has led her to explore how outer space technologies can solve public goods issues in the Arctic. The culmination of this research can be found in the NAADSN Policy Primer “Leveraging the Canadian Space Sector to Improve Arctic Infrastructure and Communications: RADARSAT and Telesat” (with Jill Barclay).
