About Catalyst

Catalyst is an online platform for news, features, and opinions regarding international development by students and for students.

Catalyst is a student-run online platform created in 2019 as an initiative of the International Development Studies Student Association (IDSSA) at McGill University under the leadership of the 2018-2019 Vice-President of Publications, Charline Côté-Lessard. The platform seeks to provide an inclusive and respectful space for students to share their opinions, experiences, and ideas relating to the field of international development.
