Main scientific activities

Peter Szyszlo is a PhD candidate at the University of Ottawa’s School of International Development and Global Studies (PhD Supervisor: Dr. Prachi Srivastava, DPhil, Oxon).  His doctoral research aims to address the changing nature of higher education in Ukraine, against a backdrop of broader political transition and macro-political dynamics of globalization and the knowledge society/economy. His project aims to analyze the place of the university as an institution that not only produces and disseminates knowledge, but assimilates and adapts global knowledge to national needs.  It also examines the role that Ukrainian national research universities may play as arbiters of knowledge and as actors of change.  Peter Szyszlo is a member of the EUREDOCS Network (Sciences Po Paris) and the European Research Area Collaborative Research Network.  His doctoral research is receiving financial support from the Shevchenko Foundation (Stephen and Olga Kuzyk Doctoral Bursary) and the J.D. Hearnshaw Memorial Scholarship.
Peter Szyszlo was a visiting scholar at the University of Bologna under the Erasmus Mundus (Nova Domus) program during the summer of 2016.  During that time, he gained first-hand exposure to European knowledge policies and studied their impacts on institutional capacity building efforts and curricular innovation on universities in Eastern Neighbouring States.
