This senior seminar is intended as a capstone to studies in the fields of international relations and political science. It focuses on current issues of foreign policy from the perspective of a practitioner. Professor Wright was Canadian Ambassador to NATO for six years. How are decisions taken in crisis situations and how are broad foreign policy directions determined? The period covered will be from the end of the Cold War to the present day. Central issues will include the return to confrontation with Russia under Putin, international intervention in humanitarian crises, dealing with an unstable Middle East, and the rise of China. American and Canadian foreign policies will be analyzed and any current crises will be given historical and strategic context. There will be a good deal of debate and discussion in the seminar.
