Currently, Jack is a Doctoral Candidate in the Political Science Department at Carleton University in Ottawa. Jack’s dissertation work theorizes the relationship between advances in military technology and how concepts of space have come to dominate the practice of humanitarian intervention undertaken by Western states. Beyond his formal academic work, Jack is also a Senior Research Supervisor and Junior Fellow of the Canadian Centre for the Responsibly to Protect. As a member of CCR2P, Jack oversees a team of researchers at Carleton University who report on the policy implications of military technology for global efforts to prevent mass atrocity crimes.
