Conflict, Reconstruction and the Dilemma of Intervention

Wednesday, March 21, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Omni Hotel, 1050 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Canada
Mar 21

Protecting threatened populations is anything but straightforward. The 2007 annual National Foreign Policy Conference (NFPC) explores a nexus of issues that inform how we understand contemporary Canadian interventions and how we plan future international deployments. Why does Canada intervene and under what circumstances? What are and should be the limits of state sovereignty? Where should priorities lie when planning post-conflict reconstruction? How do we build healthy post-conflict economies? What can we learn from Canadian experience?

CIGI is a proud sponsor of this event.
