A mission to defend the rules-based international order

Ben Rowswell has 25 years of experience as a practitioner of international relations and is a pioneer in the practise of digital diplomacy. In his last position as Ambassador to Venezuela he experienced the destructive power of modern populism. As that threat spreads to more countries, he hopes to strengthen the CIC as a platform for engaging Canadian citizens in the defence of a rules-based international order.
