Research in Rwanda

Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding alumnus Terry Hackett’s research paper The Prison Should Not Be An Island: The Role of Civil Society In Post-Conflict Correctional Reform In Rwanda was recently published as a journal article in Acta Criminilogica Southern African Journal of Criminology. Focusing on restoring the justice and prisons systems to working order for post-conflict states, his work was also featured on the International Network to Promote the Rule of Law website and the Penal Reform International’s website with a blog post and podcast.

Hackett based his recent publications on his masters research combined with his professional experience with the Correctional Service of Canada. Hackett received the 2015 Royal Roads Founders Award for exemplifying the qualities of leadership, sustainability and personal development.
