Sanjay Jeram is the Chair of Undergraduate Studies and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Political Science at Simon Fraser University. He earned his PhD from the University of Toronto in 2012.
Dr. Jeram teaches the large introductory course – “POL 100” – in addition to courses on research methods and the politics of immigration. Recent student evaluations are posted here.
Dr. Jeram has published articles and book chapters on the nexus between immigrant-generated diversity and sub-state nationalism, as well as on the effects of nationalism on public opinion, democratization, and Canadian federalism. His current research focuses on two questions in the Canadian context: why has Canada so far avoided a “far-right” anti-immigrant party? Why is Canada’s immigration and reception policy framework more decentralized than any other in the world? Find links to some of his publications here.
Dr. Jeram is frequent media commentator on Canadian politics. Please see his profile in the SFU Media Experts Directory.
