New Directions for Canadian International Policy
In Fall 2014, CIPS convened four working groups of academics and policy practitioners to explore new thinking and policy options in four areas: International Security and Defence, International Development, International Trade and Commerce, and International Human Rights. This initiative grew out of discussions at the May 2014 Ottawa Forum, which focused on rethinking Canada’s international strategy. The working groups met, consulted, deliberated and drafted their reports and recommendations over the past year. CIPS is releasing their reports as part of its ongoing effort to promote evidence-based discussion of international policy issues in Canada.
