PATRICK MARTIN, Globe and Mail.
Presented by CIPS and the Middle East Policy Series.
Free. In English. Registration is not required. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
During the past decade the Harper government’s “value-oriented foreign policy” meant considerable change to what had been traditional Canadian positions in the Middle East. To what degree is the new Trudeau government likely to shift policies again?
Patrick Martin writes on the Middle East for The Globe and Mail. He has twice been posted to the region – first from 1991-95 when the primary focus was on the Oslo Accords and their aftermath, and from 2008-12 when the so-called Arab Spring and its consequences dominated coverage. He continues to write on the region from The Globe’s head office in Toronto, making several trips each year to the area. Between his two foreign postings, he served as The Globe’s Foreign Editor and Comment Editor.
