CIC Vancouver: Reflections of a Prime Minister’s Foreign Policy Advisor

October 3, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


How does foreign policy get made, both in an election campaign context as well as within the highest levels of government? Professor Paris is uniquely placed to provide insights on this issue with his close involvement as a senior advisor to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, both during the preparation of his foreign policy platform and in the initial months of his government. This will be a rare opportunity to hear from an “insider” on the realities of the foreign policy-making process in a Canadian context.
