International Journal (IJ) is Canada’s pre-eminent journal of global policy analysis. It combines brief, policy-relevant articles with longer, peer-reviewed, scholarly assessments of interest to foreign policy-makers, analysts and academics in Canada and around the world. IJ is cross-disciplinary, combining the insights of political science and history with economics and other disciplines to advance research and dialogue on issues of global significance.
Established in 1946, IJ is the flagship scholarly publication of the Canadian International Council (CIC) and the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History (CCIH). The CIC is a non-partisan, nationwide council established to strengthen Canada’s role in international affairs. The CCIH is a joint undertaking of Trinity College and the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto. It promotes the study of recent international events from a historical standpoint, and pursues programs of research, teaching, publication and other activities to that end.
