Canada's New Feminist Development Policy

June 29, 2017

On today's "Global Exchange" Podcast, we take a deep dive into Canada's new "feminist" development policy to see what role it plays in promoting Justin Trudeau's "Canada is Back" rhetoric. Join our host Colin Robertson in conversation with a CGAI expert in development assistance, Darren Schemmer, for a run-down of the policy, and what it means for Canada's role in the world moving forward.
