About this Event

Host Organization: NPSIA

Canada’s support for shared global governance has often clashed with recurrent U.S. unilateralism and “à la carte multilateralism.” Donald Trump’s America First policies pose even greater challenges as he has threatened to end U.S. involvement in NAFTA, NATO, the WTO, and the Paris Climate Accord. This talk explores whether Canada and various like-minded partners can save and promote multilateral cooperation given inconsistent U.S. backing.
Rodger A. Payne is Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Canada-U.S. Relations at NPSIA and Professor of Political Science at the University of Louisville. He has contributed a chapter to the latest forthcoming volume of the Canada Among Nations series and has published frequently on international cooperation, U.S. unilateralism, and world order.
