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.
