Naomi Shi

Naomi Shi is a recent graduate of McGill University, having completed her Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. As a Chinese-Canadian with roots in Hong Kong and Vancouver, her academic interests revolve around Chinese foreign policy and Sino-Canadian relations. During her undergrad, she wrote two thesis papers, exploring both the impacts of China’s rise on the nuclear non-proliferation regime and how China’s national narrative constrains its foreign policy. Last summer, Naomi served as a Policy Intern at the Canadian Permanent Mission to the International Organizations in Vienna, where she supported Canada’s engagement with the IAEA on issues related to nuclear non-proliferation and safeguards. Since then, she has developed a keen interest in understanding how international security is sustained in practice. Naomi is excited to support the NATO Association of Canada and its mission of informing Canadians about the importance of NATO’s goal of peace, prosperity, and security.
