CIC Toronto: The Glendon School of International Affairs: NATO and Canada’s Security
February 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
NATO and Canada’s National Security; what does 2020 hold for this 70-year-old alliance?
Canada recognizes that peace, security and economic prosperity relies on the interdependent relationship between North America and Europe. Coming together with like minded nations in the aftermath of WWII, Canada took an active role in setting out the terms of the Washington Treaty and shaping the peace and security agenda for the 70-year-old alliance.
The end of the Cold War and collapse of the Berlin Wall has witnessed the growth of NATO members and partnership agreements with countries in central and Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa. While guiding the transformation of the Alliance, Canada has contributed to NATO led missions in Central Asia, Middle East, Europe, and North America.
Join the Glendon School of Public and International Affairs on February 25th to discuss the changing political landscape and the role NATO plays in preserving peace and security and how Canada can contribute to the this civil-military alliance, what is our role moving forward? Does NATO continue to meet Canada’s security needs? Is Canada contributing its fair share? Is the alliance fit for purpose and ready to meet the security challenges of the 21st century? Does the treaty need to be revised? Is it worth it?
Our panel of experts will discuss some of the challenges affecting the Canadian community and the audience is invited to participate in the discussion.
