CIC Edmonton: Canada and the UN Security Council
March 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MDTFree – $7
Why does Canada want a seat on the UN Security Council? What does it mean for responsibilities and relationships with other countries? And what would it mean for us here at home?
Before the secret ballot vote on June 17th, join CIC Edmonton and Adam Chapnick, Deputy Director of Education at Canadian Forces College and Professor of Defence Studies at Royal Military College, in a discussion on Canada’s current bid for a seat on the UN Security Council and why it is relevant to Canada’s international relationships and responsibilities.
Adam Chapnick is a professor of defence studies at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC). He is located in Toronto, where he also serves as the deputy director of education at the Canadian Forces College.
He holds a BA (Honours) from Trent University, an MA in International Affairs from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University, and a PhD in History from the University of Toronto. He joined RMC in 2006 and currently teaches courses in Canadian foreign policy and strategic decision-making at the federal level. He also supervises theses on Canadian foreign and public policy and plays a leading role in drafting and implementing the College’s teaching and learning vision and strategies.
Outside of the college, he lectures about Canadian politics and international security across the greater Toronto community. He has also led teaching and learning workshops on student assessment, course design, public speaking, and succeeding in the academic job market.
