Dr. Maya Eichler holds the Canada Research Chair in Social Innovation and Community Engagement, and is an assistant professor in Political and Canadian Studies and Women’s Studies at Mount Saint Vincent University (Halifax, NS). At Mount Saint Vincent University, Dr. Eichler leads the Centre for Social Innovation and Community Engagement in Military Affairs. Research on the new generation of Canadian veterans is a central component of the Centre’s work. The Centre brings a unique feminist and intersectional lens to Veteran research. To this end, one of our areas of interest is the interplay between military sexual trauma and military-to-civilian transition. The release of the Deschamps report in April 2015 documented a widespread sexualized culture within the military. Problems encountered by Canadian survivors of sexual trauma during service include a lack of support, potential retribution after reporting, or an unwanted medical release. After release from the military, Veterans who have experienced military sexual trauma often continue to encounter difficulties such as health challenges or inadequate services. Dr. Eichler’s research highlights that sexual violence is an important Veteran issue that requires more policy attention. Through this type of research, the Centre sheds light on the diversity of Veteran experiences in Canada.
