Canada and the Americas
The course assesses the dynamics and implications of Canada's recent emergence as an active member of the inter-American system. Intensive readings and debate will deal with such major issue areas as the NAFTA and FTAA, security and governance, human rights, migration, sustainable development, and the so-called "emerging architecture" of the Americas. Previous course work on the economic and political evolution of Latin America and inter-American relations is as important as background knowledge of Canadian foreign policy decision-making.
