The Association of Commonwealth Universities recently announced the winners of this year’s Titular Fellowships and one of The UWI’s professors is a recipient. The University of Manitoba Fellowship has been granted to Professor Derek Chadee, head of the Department of Behavioural Sciences at the St. Augustine Campus to establish the first Caribbean-Canadian research agenda on fear of crime rates. His research will also look at the disconnection between official crime statistics and unreported crime rates.

The awards cover various academic disciplines, from information technology to food science, and will see Fellows visit prestigious institutions across the Commonwealth between October 2015 and September 2016.

Professor Chadee spoke on this subject at his Professorial Inaugural Lecture held on March 26, 2015 at The UWI, St. Augustine campus. A summary of his lecture can be found here:http://sta.uwi.edu/uwiToday/archive/may_2015/article7.asp
