Norwich University hosted Pierre Jolicoeur over the spring 2017 semester as a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in affiliation with the NU Peace and War Center. A specialist on the former Soviet Union and Southeastern Europe, Jolicoeur focuses on secessionist movements, foreign policy, and cybersecurity. While at Norwich, Jolicoeur examined the radicalization of Canadian and American individuals to extremist ideas and the role of social media in that process. The joint program between Norwich and Fulbright Canada establishes a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair at Norwich University annually. Program funding comes from a gift from Norwich Trustee J. Fred Weintz Jr. ’47, in honor of his Canadian-born wife, Rosemary Ross.
