The Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO), the UNESCO Chair on the Prevention of Radicalization and Violent Extremism (UNESCO-PREV) and Project SOMEONE (Social Media Education Every Day) announce the launch of PROFILE, a toolkit to combat racial and social profiling.
Project Someone collaborators and Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance (CSLP) members Owen Chapman (principal investigator), Sandra Chang-Kredl, Annabelle Brault, and Vivek Venkatesh (co-applicants) have received a three-year grant from the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC) for $204,610 as a research-creation team.
Professor David Morin, co-holder of the UNESCO-PREV Chair, is co-author of this text on deconfinement in Quebec. While the situation appears to be stable in other parts of Quebec, Montreal is among the cities most affected worldwide by the COVID-19 pandemic. In certain boroughs and more importantly in residential and long-term care centres (CHSLDs), the situation far exceeds the government’s capacity to assist certain segments of the population. The COVID-19 pandemic has thus turned into a sectoral humanitarian crisis.
