The fourth edition of this widely used text includes updates about the many changes that have occurred in Canadian foreign policy under Stephen Harper and the Conservatives between 2006 and 2015. Subjects discussed include the fading emphasis on internationalism, the rise of a new foreign policy agenda that is increasingly shaped by domestic political imperatives, and the changing organization of Canada’s foreign policy bureaucracy. As in previous editions, this volume analyzes the deeply political context of how foreign policy is made in Canada. Taking a broad historical perspective, Kim Nossal, Stéphane Roussel, and Stéphane Paquin provide readers with the key foundations for the study of Canadian foreign policy. They argue that foreign policy is forged in the nexus of politics at three levels – the global, the domestic, and the governmental – and that to understand how and why Canadian foreign policy looks the way it does, one must look at the interplay of all three.
This collection brings together a wide range of authoritative,informed perspectives on issues of ethics and security facing Canadiansin the turbulent global environment of the twenty-first century. Thesereflections, by some of the leading scholars in the field, link theabstract analytical and philosophical questions of "ethics"to the critical and challenging questions of decision-making practicein Canadian foreign policy. Contributors to this volume deal with both the abstract notions ofvalue, culture, norms, and ethics, and the concrete questions ofpolicy, law, and enforcement. They assess the challenges and theopportunities presented by new concepts, such as human security, mutualvulnerability, soft power, global cultural scripts, "goodgovernance," and niche diplomacy, for foreign policy decisionmaking. The addition of suggested seminar questions, a list of furtherreadings, and a sample course outline add to the usefulness of thistext in a practical classroom setting.
