CFOJA Research Team

CFOJA Research Team

The CFOJA builds on femicide research, social action, and networks that have been developed during the past several decades. Established by the Centre for the Study of Social and Legal Responses to Violence (CSSLRV), University of Guelph, CSSLRV Director and Professor Myrna Dawson, and former Canada Research Chair in Public Policy in Criminal Justice (2008-2018), spearheaded the development of the CFOJA with two objectives in mind:

  1. to address the need for a single location for information about justice and accountability for femicide victims in Canada; and
  2. to facilitate innovative and sustainable research agendas on femicide justice and accountability in Canada and globally.

Working with Professor Dawson is a core team of dedicated individuals including CSSLRV Research Coordinator, Angelika Zecha, along with CSSLRV researchers Haleakala Angus, Ciara Boyd, Emily Graham, Abigail Mitchell, and Emmanuel Rohn. Website and graphic design support is provided by Janice Hicks and French translation by Lindsey Baumen. [See below for more information on each member of the research team]

Current activities of the CFOJA are supported by funding from the CSSLRV and the University of Guelph. Previous funding was provided by the Canadian Women’s Foundation, Women and Gender Equality, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and the Canada Research Chair Program.
