Fostering Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogues

Foreign Policy and International Security

This research group focuses on foreign policy and security issues that are of a shared concern for Canada and the EU. Under its current liberal government Canada is currently redefining cornerstones of its foreign policy. The traditional close partnership with the USA is challenged by the Trump presidency, a development that is likely to strengthen ties to and collaborations with Europe and the EU in key foreign policy domains. Of central interest for this group are approaches to international security and terrorism, the political challenges in the Middle East including the ongoing civil war in Syria, the Western alliance’s response to Russia’s ambitions in Central and Eastern Europe and the governance of the Artic.

The activities of this group are in the process of redesign.
