Selfie Diplomacy and the Era of Foreign Minister Stéphane Dion

PODCAST

April 16, 2018

On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we sit down for an extended conversation with CGAI Fellow, and former political advisor to Foreign Minister Stéphane Dion, Jocelyn Coulon. Mr. Coulon has just released a new book entitled "Un selfie avec Justin Trudeau" in which he chronicles his experience at Global Affairs Canada from 2016 to 2017, and outlines various disagreements between then-Foreign Minister Dion and Prime Minister Trudeau. Along with discussing his new book, Colin and Jocelyn also touch on Canada's foreign policy in Africa, our recently annouced peacekeeping mission to Mali, and the likelihood of Canada obtaining a Security Council seat in 2020.
