CIC Winnipeg: Democracy promotion and Canadian foreign policy
April 11 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDTFree
In conversation with Tom S. Axworthy, Distinguished Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy and former Principal Secretary and Chief Speechwriter for Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
The weakening of democracy has emerged as a major theme of the 21st century as both established emerging democracies experience, democratic backsliding and rising political polarization. In this climate, democracy promotion has featured in the election platforms of all Canada’s major political parties and remained popular with the Canadian public. But has the policy ever been put into practice? Should it be? And if it is, what form should it take?
Join our speaker to unpack the state of democracy promotion in Canadian foreign policy and what democracy promotion can look like.
