Canada Among Nations 2012 to 2014
This grant will help the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University (Ottawa) publish three volumes of Canada Among Nations (CAN), described as the country's best "publication of record" on Canadian international relations.
Each year, CAN looks at major global issues that are important to Canada. Its focus is often on the developing world, as shown by the 2011-2012 volume Canada and Mexico's Unfinished Agenda. CAN authors come from within and outside Canada, and reflect diverse viewpoints from the academic world, professional groups, and political observers.
This project will support the publication of three volumes (numbers 27 to 29) over three years. The first will examine Canada's relationships with Africa, analyzing the ebb and flow of Canadian engagement with Africa over the past century and highlighting the opportunities that exist for Canada and Canadians at this point in the continent's development.
The themes for the two next volumes will be decided through a consultative process at the start of each calendar year.
Annual project outputs will include an authors' workshop, a published book, possible briefs, and several outreach activities to promote the book and its contents. Online tools will help contributors to communicate and collaborate.
