About Me

Adan Busto

My name is Adan E. Suazo, and I am currently living in Montreal, where I serve as Research Fellow at the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies and as Coordinator of the Loyola Sustainability Research Centre at Concordia University.

I have a Master’s degree in Social Science with a Specialization in Peace and Conflict Studies from Uppsala University, Sweden and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Concordia University, Canada.  Since 2009, I have conducted independent research on issues  pertaining to democratic governance and peace processes.  The results of my research have been published in newspapers and academic journals in Central America,  Canada, U.S. and South Africa.  I am presently working on several projects.  I conduct research that endeavours to bridge the scholarly world’s division between inclusion and exclusion of former warring parties in peace processes.  I also served as the Editor of the Spanish version of the book entitled “So You Can Tell”: a memoir of a Holocaust survivor that now lives in Montreal, Canada.

I was born in Honduras and have lived in seven countries in Latin America, Europe and North America.  I am fluent in Spanish, my mother language, as well as in English and French.  I also have basic knowledge of Italian.  My professional goals are focused on conducting research that is both theoretically and practically sound, and to teach students at the CEGEP and university levels in Quebec on topics of political science and peace.  Aside from my academic endeavours, I like to compose music on guitar and write poetry.

  1. hello Adan,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I am baffled a lot of the time even after living here 30 years about how things get bogged down in Canada where it should not be a problem at all, in my view. I guess with the hindsight of my student revolt participation in Amsterdam in my younger years where people go to the streets and protest en masse and nothing too bad happens, really, I see it as a legitimate means to get attention for a point of view. The less our youth feels involved in decision making processes, the harder they will push back….so how come governments learn that lesson so slowly? A more global view is needed and lessons to be learned from other nations and other times.
    Interesting blog, I will follow it.
    Johanna
