My experience as a doctoral student in the department was everything I could ask for. The faculty is top notch. The relationships I built with the professors and my peers were exceptionally rich. The atmosphere was collegial. The academic standards were high. Now that I am an alumni, I continue to draw on the department’s rich resources in my current work. Truly, the University of Toronto’s Department of Political Science is one of Canada’s great intellectual treasures. — Joshua Hjartarson, Policy Director, Mowat Centre for Policy Innovation

Emanuel Adler is honoured with a Fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada


Political Science Professor, Emanuel Adler, is one of the world’s foremost scholars of International Relations (IR). He is a leader of IR’s “constructivist” approach, which successfully challenged the field’s dominant paradigms, a program-builder, and a dedicated teacher and mentor. His scholarship is theoretically ambitious, empirically rigorous and intellectually pluralistic, which explains why he is among the three most widely-cited IR scholars in Canada.

Every year, distinguished scholars and artists are elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada on the basis of their exceptional contributions to Canadian intellectual life. This year it is Professor Adler who is being recognized for his outstanding contributions as a scholar and has been elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada.

The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) comprises the Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences of Canada. Its mission is to recognize scholarly, research and artistic excellence, to advise governments and organizations, and to promote a culture of knowledge and innovation in Canada.

This election is a telling recognition of Professor Adler’s remarkable accomplishments and an invitation for him to further the leadership he has already shown in advancing knowledge and scholarship in Canada.
