Glyn R. Berry Lectures
On January 15, 2006, senior Canadian diplomat Glyn R. Berry was tragically killed in a terrorist attack in Afghanistan. At that time, he was Political Director for the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Kandahar with the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT, now Global Affairs Canada). Mr. Berry was a principled humanitarian; passionately devoted to improving conditions for ordinary people in desperate circumstances.
Mr. Berry graduated with a PhD (Political Science) from Dalhousie University in 1981. In his honour, Dalhousie, in partnership with DFAIT, created the Glyn R. Berry Memorial Scholarship in International Policy Studies. With the POLI department, CSSD co-sponsors an annual lecture series in Mr. Berry’s memory, to encourage informed reflection on Canadian foreign policy.
