Janet Hiebert has been teaching in the Department of Political Studies since 1991, having received a B.A. (Hons.) from UBC in 1985 and M.A. (1986) and Ph.D. (1991) fromToronto. She is the author of two books about the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Charter Conflicts: What is Parliament's Role? (McGill-Queen's University Press, 2002), and Limiting Rights: The Dilemma of Judicial Review (McGill-Queen's University Press, 1996), along with numerous papers and chapters on the politics of rights and on campaign finance laws in Canada. She has served as a member of the Ontario Electoral Boundaries Commission, an independent, non-partisan body with responsibility to readjust the electoral boundaries in the province of Ontario. Her current research project examines how the recent adoption of bill of rights in several parliamentary jurisdictions affects political practices, policy development and legislative behaviour (Canada, NZ, UK, Australia).
