A Look Inside
Main Description
Many see the election of the minority Conservative government in 2006 as marking a fundamental shift in Canadian foreign policy. Others note that Canada's changing internationalist priorities - its declining participation in UN missions, controversial combat role in Afghanistan, and itsinability to commit to meaningful climate change policy - began in the 1990s. Canada in the World looks at these and other foreign policy developments of the last twenty years to analyze how they deviate from or reinforce traditional perceptions of Canada at home and abroad.Organized into two sections and 14 chapters, Canada in the World brings together leading academics of internationalism and Canadian foreign policy, such as Kim Richard Nossal, Stephane Roussel, Daryl Copeland, Mark Neufeld, Heather A. Smith, and Claire Turenne Sjolander, to offer unique andtheoretically original interpretations of Canada's current role on the world's stage. Essays explore timely topics such as Canada-US relations since 9/11, human rights intervention in China, and bilateral negotiations with India, among others, through the lens of internationalism.
