Associate Professor, Ph.D. York University

Dr. Yvette Daniel is the recipient of several recent grants, the most recent being the prestigious SSHRC Partnership Development grant, Pedagogies of Repair and Reconciliation (Tikkun): The Embodied Praxis of Youth Civic Engagement (2014- 2017). She is the Principal Investigator/Project Director on a three-year Partnership Development Grant. The partnership’s starting point is Tikkun Olam, the ancient Jewish concept meaning the “repair and healing of our world”. This partnership reaches out to youth aged 16 to 25 from communities in Canada, Kosovo, and South Africa that are in particular need of restorative justice. The goal is to foster and formalize a Canadian-led collaboration for active civic engagement among marginalized youth. For more information visit the project site: tikkunproject.org External Link.
