Waterloo, Ontario - This Thursday, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) will host a wine and cheese reception to launch Canada Among Nations: What Room for Manoeuvre?, a book released this month by CIGI and Carleton University's Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.

About the Book:

CanadaAmong Nations: What Room for Manoeuvre? examines Canada's foreign policy and assesses whether it is effective enough to advance national interests and values. What the editors find is a trail of missed opportunities, lack of vision, contradictory positions and under-investment in capacity.

Preoccupation with an independent foreign policy is a constant theme in Canada but as the book optimistically shows, there are many opportunities to improve our standing in the world and have a more influential role in international affairs.

This is the first in a new series of free public book launches hosted by CIGI.
