Minor in Security Studies - Canadian Foreign Policy POLI 3569   Canadian Foreign Policy
This advanced seminar course is concerned with the 'structure-agent' problem as it applies to Canadian foreign policy. In other words, what are the structures (both material and normative) that shape and constrain the pursuit of Canadian foreign policy; what room for maneuver and initiative is there; and who are the key actors, or the 'agents' who shape and implement Canada's global role? The course discusses these questions through four sections: theoretical and analytical approaches to the study of Canadian foreign policy; the external context; the domestic context; and key themes and issues in Canadian foreign policy
