Policy and a Pint – Canada in a nasty world: Foreign policy advice for the next government

Alternate Text or Title of article
5 p.m.- 6 p.m.

The federal election is coming on Monday, October 21st and whoever becomes Prime Minister will face some of the most serious challenges to the global world order since the end of the Cold War.

Canada will have to manage its relations with a more assertive China, an isolationist USA and chaotic Brexit – to name just a few hot spots.

The post-WW2 institutions created to stabilize the world order and promote cooperation are eroding.  And so is trust at a global level.  Canada has to navigate more unpredictable international waters without the benefit of favourable winds.

Join a panel of experts from The School of Public Policy and the Centre for Military, Security & Strategic Studies (CMSS) as these issues are explored.

Featured panelists: 

  • Dr. Eugene Beaulieu, The School of Public Policy
  • Dr. Jean-Christophe Boucher, The School of Public Policy and Department of Political Science, University of Calgary
  • Dr. Erin Gibbs Van Brunschot, Centre for Military, Security & Strategic Studies
