About Christopher D Gore

I am an Associate Professor at Ryerson University, Department of Politics and Public Administration. I am also a faculty associate of two graduate programs and one research centre: Environmental Applied Science and Management, Immigration and Settlement Studies, and the Centre for Studies of Food Security. My broad research interests relate to the politics and policy of environmental and urban issues in North America and Sub-Saharan Africa, and the role of technology in influencing policy debates and outcomes. I am interested in how different forms of knowledge influence policy and decision-making systems, and how different interests from different scales interact in these systems.
I am currently involved in three collaborative research projects: a three year, Social Science and Humanities Research Council (Canada) funded project with Dr. Pamela J. Robinson (Ryerson University), which will survey all municipalities with a population over 5,000 across Canada, to understand their response to climate change; a three year, multi-university project funded by the GEOIDE Network of Centres of Excellence, which examines the role of the 'geoweb' and Web 2.0 tools, to engage the public in environmental management and decision-making; and, ongoing research on food and energy security in East Africa.
I am also the editor of the journal, Review of Policy Research: The Politics and Policy of Science and Technology.
