MBA Alum Alexander Landry becomes a Young Fellow with the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy

The University of Fredericton would like to congratulate MBA alum Alexander Landry on becoming a Young Fellow with the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy.

The Young Fellowship program provides recent graduates and young professionals an opportunity to learn from leading policy practitioners, decision-makers, and scholars on foreign, defense, and international trade policy issues. Discussing the work performed by the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy, Alexander said:

“The Institute for Peace and Diplomacy is a non-profit and non-partisan North American international affairs think tank dedicated to promoting dialogue, diplomacy, prudent realism, and military restraint. These are principles that the institute and I believe are cornerstones to sustainable peace in an increasingly complex and dynamic international system, and they are certainly principles we have discussed and refined within our time spent studying at the University of Fredericton.”

Alexander also shared what it meant for him to be welcomed to the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy’s inaugural young fellowship cohort.

“For me, being selected as a Young Fellow with the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy is an opportunity to leverage many of the skills and theory that I moulded during my time with the University of Fredericton within the Global Leadership stream. My intent is to give back to the community with my newfound knowledge working for NATO, and expand the discussion surrounding key topics such as climate change and energy security within the Canadian dialogue.”
