About Dustin Johnson
I am a doctoral student in Peace and Development Research, working as part of a project on gender and child protection in UN Peacekeeping based at the Dallaire Institute for Children, Peace and Security at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. As part of this project I am focusing on the ways in which gender informs the conceptualization and enactment of child protection practices in UN Peacekeeping, drawing on practice theory and critical feminist international relations scholarship. I previously worked as a research officer at the Dallaire Institute for three years before beginning my doctoral studies, and before that completed my bachelors and masters degrees at Dalhousie University, with research assistant positions in Canada, the US, and Mongolia.
