Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (CFPJ) has released its newest issue: Volume 22, Issue 3.
Carleton University’s David Carment, Canadian Global Affairs Institute (CGAI) fellow, professor at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) and editor of the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (CFPJ), has released the newest issue of CFPJ, which celebrates Canada’s 150 years as a nation.
“A proud moment to be sure, but this celebratory event unfolds at a time of doubt about Canada’s place in the world,” says Carment. “Canada’s democracy is in need of an overhaul and its Indigenous peoples are in crisis. An obsession with domestic security detracts from our leaders’ capacity to address pressing economic and political problems. To add uncertainty to the mix, Justin Trudeau’s ambitious multilateral agenda faces unprecedented challenges with the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States”
Seven articles take aim at a variety of issues facing Canada, including the country’s declining international commitments to human rights, the F35 fighter jet purchase, voter behavior under the Harper Conservatives and new ways of thinking about counter-terrorism.
Presented in this issue are reflections from four former directors of NPSIA in celebration of its 50th anniversary. This article is freely available here.
CFPJ is published by NPSIA at Carleton and is now in its 23rd year of publication.
