About Us

The Robert F. Harney Professorship and Program in Ethnic, Immigration, and Pluralism Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy supports and promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching on ethnic diversity and interethnic group relations in Canadian society in a comparative context.  Its purpose is to develop graduate programs in the study of ethnicity, and to involve faculty, professionals, and students from various disciplines. Expertise in the study of ethnicity is greatly valued by social agencies, consulting firms, hospitals, civic organizations, and other institutions that deal with issues that include: immigration and immigrant adjustment, Native Peoples, race and race relations, attitudes towards diverse cultures, minority group conflicts, and cultural diversity policies.

There are three main components in the Harney Program:


Program Director: Jeffrey G Reitz
Program Administrator and GMRI Research Officer: Momo Kano Podolsky
