Research and Publications
The CIC publishes The Signal Board, special reports, event briefings, the Behind the Headlines paper series, and the leading Canadian foreign policy journal International Journal.
The Signal Board
The Signal Board is the CIC’s blog platform. In this space, you will find a diverse array of content, from op-eds penned by CIC and external experts to interviews with policy makers and practitioners, and reviews of trending international affairs publications. The Signal Board aims to inform readers on key international affairs issues, spur public debate on those issues and highlight the work of the CIC.
Behind the Headlines
First published in 1940 as a pamphlet series focused on contemporary Canadian foreign policy, Behind the Headlines evolved first into a quarterly current affairs magazine, and then into its current form as a policy paper series. The various iterations of Behind the Headlines shared a focus on international affairs and Canada’s place in the world, as well as an overriding goal of producing material accessible to a wide audience.
Founded in 1946, International Journal (IJ) has long been Canada’s leading academic forum for serious discussion of foreign policy and international affairs. Published in conjunction with the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History (CCIH), it combines brief, policy-relevant articles with longer, peer-reviewed, scholarly assessments of interest to foreign policy makers, analysts and academics in Canada and around the world. IJ is cross-disciplinary, combining the insights of political science and history with economics and other fields to advance research and dialogue on issues of global significance.
