Call for Papers: Canadian Foreign Policy Journal

Sub-National Influences on Foreign Policy: the Canada-US Context

Canadian Foreign Policy Journal  in Partnership with Fulbright Canada is pleased to announce a  call for papers requesting submissions on the topic of  sub national influences on foreign policy in the Canada-US context. Whether it is issues related to the environment, the far North, energy  trade or security, sub-national processes,  actors and interests  are becoming increasingly important influences in shaping and defining Canada-US relations. Whereas the Canada and US politics  of the past  was largely the purview of states, now the politics of globalization and power diffusion highlight equally important    influences such as the foreign policy and lobbying activities of Quebec and Alberta in Washington, emerging  relations between provinces and states, and municipalities, the evolving roles of provinces and states in bilateral relations.

Sub-national influences  have now  become a  new front line in  strengthening Canada-US relations, creating  challenges and opportunities brought on by new trends and developments in how foreign policy is influenced and made. The challenges mostly take the  shape of the range of different actors and their impact on foreign policy outcomes. The opportunities are driven by increasingly confident  parastatal, regional,  local and provincial actors who shape these  policies. Examples include   the Keystone Pipeline, freshwater sharing, border security, Hydro Quebec, ideological organisations and the influence of NAFTA on sub national relations.

Guidelines for Thematic Issue Proposals: Canadian Foreign Policy Journal

Canadian Foreign Policy Journal (CFPJ) publishes thematic issues regularly. The theme may be approached from a particular or, preferably, interdisciplinary social science perspective.

Issues normally consist of an introductory review article (approximately 5-7,000 words) and 5-7 articles (approximately 6,000-8,000 words). Each issue is normally overseen by a special guest editor. The title of the thematic issue and the name of the guest editor(s) are printed on the front cover. All papers in each of the thematic issues are subject to peer review and benefit from comments and editorial guidance from the guest editor and the CFPJ editor.

Thematic issues should address the aims and scope of CFPJ by exploring issues of importance to Canada. The Journal welcomes original submissions that review issues on the state of the field. The Journal’s goal is give our readers research and commentary on Canada’s place in the world. Key themes include the history of Canada in international affairs, the policy process, changing global priorities, Canada-US relations, development, trade and security, and emerging
trends in health, the environment, and the new diplomacy. Over the next several years we will examine linkages both internal, such as domestic and provincial politics, and external, including Canada’s relationship with multilateral and regional organizations. The varied sources of policy including domestic politics, paradiplomacy and diasporas are also considered. Contributions are drawn from Canada and around the world. Essays are fully referenced, peer-reviewed, authoritative yet written for the specialist and non-specialist alike. Our readers include government officials, academics, students of international affairs, journalists, NGOs, and the private sector.

The Seven Year Itch: Canadian Foreign Policy Under the Harper Government, Looking Forward, Turning Back?

A lot has been written recently about the elemental changes the current government is taking in regards to transforming Canada’s approach to development, defence and diplomacy. The decision to fold CIDA into DFAIT, the establishment of an Office of Religious Freedom, the failure to secure a seat on the UN Security Council as well controversies surrounding  the purchase of the F35 stand out as examples of these changes. In terms of environmental policy and international law, the recent move to quietly pull out of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, making Canada the only country in the world to do so, mirrors the government’s 2011 decision to formally withdraw from the Kyoto protocol. At the same time the government has been persistent in its pursuit of free trade agreements, achieving success both bilaterally and regionally.

To what extent are these and other changes fundamental shifts in Canadian foreign policy? Are they more than just rebranding? What are the implications for Canada’s standing and its status as a Middle Power?  Is multilateralism still the reference point for understanding Canada’s engagement in the world?
