Project #24261 - Canada's Government

Imagine you are advising the Canadian government on a major global issue

Paper should be 4 to 6 pages, plus appendices and annotated bibliography


Select an issue

- Foreign Aid

- Military/Peacekeeping/Anti-terrorism

- Human Trafficking

- Development assistance in targeted areas (e.g. food security)

- Democratic development

- Religious freedoms

- Immigration / Labour

Your task is to develop guidelines that will inform how Canada responds:

- identify the principles and goals that the government should address

- outline the rationale for these principles and goals.

1. Identify major elements and characteristics of the issue, including policy/ advocacy debates. Identify key global actors, including views of major Canadian NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) (1.5 – 2 pages)

2. Identify and describe the Canadian federal government’s (and where relevant provincial governments) historic and current views or policy positions on the issue (1.5 - 2 pages)

3. Offer policy recommendations based on your analysis of the issue and issues noted in the first two tasks. This should be informed by how you understand Canada’s role in the world, including an expression of Canadian values and interests, and how we act to promote them (1-2 pages).
