Join the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History this Wednesday January 18th for the launch of Adam Chapnick and Christopher J. Kukucha's The Harper Era in Foreign Policy.
To both critics and defenders, Canadian foreign policy under Stephen Harper was seen as representing a sharp break with what had gone before. Was this true, and why or why not? The Harper Era in Canadian Foreign Policy, edited by Adam Chapnick and Christopher J. Kukucha, brings together an outstanding roster of analysts to assess the conduct of Canadian foreign policy under Stephen Harper in a variety of its aspects. The Graham Centre is pleased to sponsor a launch of this provocative volume, at which coeditor Adam Chapnick and contributors John English, Kim Richard Nossal, and Hugh Segal will speak.
Books will be available for purchase

Advancement in technology has brought new challenges and opportunities for the international community and our quest for peace & security, especially as we face the rise of non-state actors.

The experience of the refugee is often one of paralysis – unable to look back, yet simultaneously stalled from moving forward. As the homes of many in Syria are caught in the crossfire of civil war, Europe has witnessed the largest influx of refugees since World War II, with the need far outweighing the responses.
The Hart House Debates Committee, the Canadian Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, and the U of T Refugee Alliance have coordinated a panel discussion to: explore the impetus behind this mass migration, discuss the human and global impacts, and consider policy decisions that Canada and the international community can pursue to improve the prognoses for refugees and their families.
