Synopsis

The 21st century is not progressing as expected. Conventional wisdom at the turn of the century was that the world would grow more peaceful and orderly. Globalization would advance democratization. Instead, the post-war rules-based international system that saw us through Cold War and its aftermath is now under strain. Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping prefer spheres of influence. Donald Trump puts America First.

Positioning Canada in the shifting world order will be the focus of a day-long conference hosted by the CGAI. Drawing together parliamentarians, senior civil servants, diplomats, business, students and civil society, it will look at these themes

  • Managing Canada’s International Interests
  • Managing America First
  • The China Challenge
  • G7 Overview
  • What do we want out of Charlevoix?
  • What G7 partners want out Charlevoix?
  • An Energy Superpower? Or Hamstrung by Social License and Provincial Bickering?

An Update on the NAFTA Renegotiations

May 21, 2018


On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we touch base with CGAI's North American trade experts in light of a busy week on the NAFTA file in Washington. After months of hard-pressed negotiations, and 6 weeks of 'perpetual' discussions in Washington, the deal has reached its next turning point, with Congressional leadership signalling that they'd need a new deal by May 17th in order to have it passed before U.S. mid-term elections in the Fall. With no deal in sight, and the Congressional deadline now in the rear-view mirror, we sit down with Sarah Goldfeder, Laura Dawson, and Eric Miller to ask where we go from here.
