The politics of Canadian foreign policy by Kim Richard Nossal( Book )

35 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth edition of this widely-used text includes updates of the many changes that have occurred in Canadian foreign policy under Stephen Harper and the Conservatives between 2006 and 2015. including the evanescence of internationalism, the rise of a new foreign policy agenda increasingly shaped by domestic political imperatives, and the changing organization of Canada's foreign policy bureaucracy. But like previous editions, it seeks to analyze the deeply political context of how foreign policy is made in Canada. Taking a broad historical perspective, Nossal, Roussel, and Paquin provide students 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
Diplomatic departures : the Conservative era in Canadian foreign policy, 1984-93 by Nelson Michaud( )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the nine years that the Conservatives under Brian Mulroney held power in Ottawa, Canadian foreign policy underwent a series of important departures from established policy. Some of these changes mirrored the major transformations in global politics that occurred during this period as the Berlin Wall was breached, the Cold War came to an end, and a globalized economy emerged. But some of the changes were the results of initiatives taken by the Conservative government. The first major scholarly examination of the foreign policy of this period, this collection explores and analyzes the many departures from traditional Canadian statecraft that took place during the Mulroney Conservative era: free trade with the U.S., a continentalized energy policy, initiatives over the environment and the Arctic, the withdrawal of Canadian forces from Europe, and the transformation of peacekeeping into peacemaking. Contributors include Barbara McDougall, Denis Stairs, Brian Tomlin, Tammy L. Nemeth, Heather Smith, Rob Huebert, Norrin Ripsman, Manon Tessier, Michel Fortmann, Luc Bernier, Gordon Mace, Andrew F. Cooper, David M. Black, Paul Gecelovsky, Tom Keating, J.H. Taylor, Claire Turenne Sjolander, and Roy Norton
Relocating middle powers : Australia and Canada in a changing world order by Andrew Fenton Cooper( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fall of the Berlin Wall and the disintegration of the Soviet Union were only two of the many events that profoundly altered the international political system in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In a world no longer dominated by Cold War tensions, nation states had to rethink their international roles and focus more on economic rather than military concerns. This book examines how two middle powers, Australia and Canada, engaged in the difficult process of relocating themselves in the rapidly changing international political economy. The authors argue that the concept of middle power has continuing relevance in contemporary international relations theory, and they present a number of case studies to illustrate the changing nature of middle power behaviour. In particular, they examine the trend towards the amalgamation of the foreign and trade ministries in both Canada and Australia, and the growing importance of regional trading blocs, particularly Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Australian and Canadian roles in the Gulf War are also scrutinized, showing how these middle powers found themselves caught up in the coalition-building dynamic that transformed Desert Shield into Desert Storm. Relocating Middle Powers is the first book to explore the similar ties and differences in the foreign policies of two middle powers in a new era of international relations. Focusing on the ability of middle powers to exercise technical and entrepreneurial leadership on a range of international issues, this book shows how and why middle powers will continue to be important international actors in the 1990s and beyond

A Canadian healthcare innovation agenda : policy, governance, and strategy by Kim Richard Nossal( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection features original chapters from academics and healthcare leaders that address a range of policy issues: the meaning of healthcare innovation; how a national healthcare agency and investment fund could be governed; the nature of implications of big data and evidence; how to add value through Canadian supply-chain management; how to overcome regulatory barriers to innovation; policy innovation for indigenous, military and elderly populations; the role of the medical professions in promoting innovation, education and the development of healthcare innovators. While the Canadian healthcare system is so fragmented that many analysts argue that a system-wide strategy for healthcare innovation is a distant ideal, this book presents a contrary view by showing that Canadians do indeed have the building blocks for innovation."--

Politique internationale et défense au Canada et au Québec by Kim Richard Nossal( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in French and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La politique étrangère et de défense du Canada a connu des changements de cap ces dernières années, s'adaptant aux nombreux événements qui ont marqué aussi bien le pays que le monde, en particulier la fin de la Guerre froide et les attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Ces transformations ont-elles des répercussions sur la nature de la tâche qui incombe à ceux qui dirigent la politique étrangère canadienne ? Quels sont les facteurs qui structurent le contenu et l'évolution des activités internationales du Canada et du Québec ? Cet ouvrage propose une étude systématique de la politique internationale du Canada et du Québec. On y trouve les principaux éléments qui forment le cadre dans lequel évoluent les différents acteurs appelés à formuler la politique étrangère et qui agissent comme autant de contraintes dans le processus de prise de décision : le poids de l'environnement international, le rôle de la société civile, l'importance des ressources ou encore l'impact de l'histoire et des idées dominantes. La compréhension de la politique étrangère du Canada suppose également que l'on situe le rôle des principaux dirigeants appelés à intervenir dans la formulation de la politique internationale du pays : le premier ministre, le Cabinet, le ministre des Affaires étrangères et celui de la Défense, la bureaucratie et le Parlement. Enfin, l'ouvrage traite des activités internationales des provinces, en particulier du Québec. On y trouve une analyse en profondeur de l'influence du fédéralisme sur la conduite de la politique étrangère, sur l'émergence de la para-diplomatie des gouvernements non souverains et sur la conduite des relations extérieures du Québec
The politics of war : Canada's Afghanistan mission, 2001-14 by Jean-Christophe Boucher( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Canadian government committed forces to join the American-led military mission in Afghanistan following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, little did Canadians--or the government itself--foresee that this decision would involve Canada in a war-riven country for over a decade. The Politics of War explores how, as the mission became increasingly unpopular, Canadian politicians across the political spectrum began to use it to score political points against their opponents. This was "politics" with a vengeance. Through historical analysis of the public record and interviews with officials, Jean-Christophe Boucher and Kim Richard Nossal show how the Canadian government sought to frame the engagement in Afghanistan as a "mission" rather than what it was--a war. They examine the efforts of successive governments to convince Canadians of the rightness of Canada's engagement in Afghanistan, the parliamentary politics that resulted from the increasing politicization of the mission, and the impact of public opinion on Canada's engagement. They argue that the direction, duration, and nature of Canada's contribution to international stabilization efforts in Afghanistan were largely determined by domestic, politically motivated factors rather than by what was happening in Afghanistan itself. This contribution to the field of Canadian foreign policy analyzes the impact of political elites, parliament, and public opinion on the mission and demonstrates how much of Canada's long war in Afghanistan was shaped by the vagaries of domestic politics and political gamesmanship."--

Charlie foxtrot : fixing defence procurement in Canada by Kim Richard Nossal( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Defence procurement in Canada is a mess, with hundreds of millions of dollars being routinely wasted, despite which the Canadian Armed Forces is woefully underequipped and lacking crucial capacity. Charlie Foxtrot shows why past governments failed so spectacularly to efficiently equip and manage the CAF, and how to change that."--De l'éditeur
