Montreal Inter-university Initiative in International Development

Rosalind Boyd is the founding Director of, and presently Project Advisor to, the Montreal Inter-university Initiative in International Development currently based at the Université de Montréal à Quebec (UQAM). Funded by the International Development Research Centre, the Montreal Initiative brings together a network of researchers, students and staff from the four Montreal-based universities involved in graduate research in international development in order to provide a stronger nurturing environment for a range of new cutting-edge research activities.

Uganda Archive: A Specialized Collection of Resource Material on Uganda Dedicated to the memory of Andrew Forbes

The following “specialized collection of materials on Uganda” was gathered during various field trips that Rosalind Boyd took to that country beginning in 1987. The original schema for organizing the material was put together by the late Andrew Forbes who was tragically murdered in Arua, Uganda in 1993. The listing has been periodically updated with a number of new documents now covering the period 1987-2005.

The collection is divided into four sections:

-  Reports, unpublished papers, articles, speeches, etc.;
-  Government publications;
-  Serials; and
-  Books

The material focuses primarily on gender issues, the economy and reconstituting the polity (i.e., the 1998 Land Bill, the 1995 Constitution, etc.). All of the material is available for consultation by contacting Rosalind Boyd directly. The collection will be augmented as she continues her field research work concerning the democratization process in Uganda as well as new research in the Great Lakes region of Africa.

Centre for Developing-Area Studies

Rosalind Boyd served two terms as Director of McGill’s Centre for Developing-Area Studies (CDAS) from December 1996-June 2004. Though she is no longer associated with the CDAS in any capacity, the former years were extremely rewarding as they were marked by a rich and vibrant community of graduate students, professors, visiting scholars and staff involved in international development research activities.
