Ready for Another Great Season at CIPS

September 4, 2013

We’ve been working hard to prepare an excellent series of fall events at CIPS. Here are a few highlights:

  • ​Next week, CIPS will present talks by the celebrated Pakistani journalist and author Ahmed Rashid, and by one of the world’s leading experts on democracy promotion, Thomas Carothers.

  • Later this month, John Mundy, Canada’s most recent ambassador to Iran, and Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, will debate the question: Is Canada’s policy towards Iran misguided?

  • We also look forward to welcoming former Globe and Mail columnist Graeme Smith, who will speak at the launch of his book, The Dogs Are Eating Them Now: Our War in Afghanistan.

  • In early October, we will host Louise Arbour, President of the International Crisis Group and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, who will answer the question: “Are justice, the Responsibility to Protect and peacekeeping missions contributing to peace?”

  • In mid-October, CIPS will co-host an international conference on the role of emerging powers in the promotion of democracy.

  • To receive advance notice of these and other activities – and to read cutting-edge analysis of international policy issues from the CIPS Blog, written by uOttawa experts and guests – please be sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter.

You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
