The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has highlighted the work of Royal Roads doctoral candidate Cheryl Heykoop. She was among five researchers chosen to tell their story on stage at the World Social Science Forum (WSSF) in Montreal this October.

Heykoop is supported by a Canada Graduate Scholarship and is an advisor to the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD), as well as a researcher for the Makerere University's Refugee Law Project in Uganda. She has spent a decade working with young people in Africa and Southeast Asia. Heykoop's video project highlights her work exploring meaningful child engagement methods for post-conflict truth-telling with children in northern Uganda.
