Biography

Grace Skogstad holds a BA and MA in Political Science from the University of Alberta, and a PhD in Political Science from the University of British Columbia.

She specializes in Canadian Politics, especially Canadian federalism, and comparative public policy.

Research Interests

My areas of interest are the political economy of Canadian agricultural and food policy, and of European and North American regulatory policies with respect to biofuels and genetically modified products. These substantive interests are addressed via theories of institutional transformation and resilience; the internationalization of domestic politics; and the role of ideas and discourse in policy making.
