Globalization and the Canadian State

Canada has always been a global (nation) state, integrated with the international political economy and having close political, economic and cultural ties with succeeding hegemonic powers. An active player on the global stage, Canada has also had to adapt and respond to intellectual and policy paradigm shifts embedded in global relations, while taking into account its federal structure and diversity based on issues of region, class, and nationality. This course examines the relationship between the Canadian state and globalization, old and new.
