CHAD NILSON, M.A., M.S., B.S., Dip.

February 28 - March 15, 2006

Canadian PhD student of Political Science at the University of New Orleans.
His study of drug policy in four industrialized countries - Austria, Canada, Netherlands and U.S. - brought him to Austria and Innsbruck to interview policymakers and bureaucrats to obtain their role in agenda drug policymaking throughout all stages of the process, from agenda setting to policy impact. This, combining two sub fields of political science, comparative politics and public policy.


'Many thanks,

... In close, my experience in Innsbruck has been a good one. I have met many people who I am sure I will stay in contact with in the future. The program you run at the Centre and the people you staff it with are of excellent quality. I believe it is important to have formal academic relations between our two countries and I am very proud to be part of that. I wish you all the best in the future, and hope that your work at the Canadian Studies Centre will prosper. Once, again, thank you so much for assisting me in my research. I will never forget my experience at the Centre.'
