Marion recently completed her doctorate in political science at the University of Toronto. Her research interests include peacekeeping, peacebuilding, global security governance, and the political sociology of international organizations. Her current book project, Reinventing Impartiality: Norm and Practice Change in United Nations Peace Operations, investigates changes in how the norm of impartiality is applied on a day-to-day basis in UN peacekeeping missions. The project draws on fieldwork that she conducted in Sierra Leone, Côte d’Ivoire, and at UN Headquarters in New York City. Her research has been supported by grants and fellowships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Ontario government, the University of Toronto, and Global Affairs Canada. She has also worked on Parliament Hill and in 2014-2015 she was a non-resident fellow with the Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative.
