CIGI Papers, May, 2009
Relations between the US and Iran have long been strained, with a heightened intensity evident during the Bush administration. Now, a new opportunity exists to redefine the relationship. In this paper, the author seeks to locate the Obama administration's efforts and highlight contemporary issues that would inform a constructive dialogue between the two nations.
In this working paper, CIGI Distinguished Fellow Jocelyne Bourgon, discusses reforms undertaken by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). As a former Canadian ambassador to the OECD, Mme Bourgon offers several insights about the nature and success of the reforms which can be used by individuals leading reforms in other multilateral organizations.
