Aiming to make Canada a global leader in research and development, the federal government has named Manoj Mate as Canada Research Chair in International Trade Law.

As the research chair, Mate will lead two cross-national studies in Asia and North America to investigate how non-state actors affect the implantation of international trade law at the domestic level. The position comes with $120,000 in annual funding for five years, renewable for an additional five years.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Mate said. “I plan to publish policy papers and white papers for government and the private sector, specifically for the auto industry.”

Mate is an associate professor at the University of Windsor Faculty of Law. His interdisciplinary research and teaching focus on international trade law, constitutional law, election law, comparative constitutional law, and law and society.

He also taught at the University of California Irvine School of Law, University of California Berkeley School of Law, and Whittier College School of Law. He also was a visiting scholar at the Harvard Law School’s East Asian Legal Studies Program.

His academic writings have been published in leading law reviews and journals, such as Yale Journal of International Law, Stanford Journal of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and Columbia Human Rights Law and Review.

Before his teaching and research experience, Mate practised litigation and election law in California.

He obtained his law degree from Harvard Law School. He also holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree, which he received from the University of California, Berkeley.

The Canada Research Chair program is a national strategy launched in 2000 to attract and retain a diverse cadre of world-class researchers in engineering, natural sciences, health sciences, humanities, and social sciences. The program reinforces academic research and training excellence in Canadian postsecondary institutions.
