This presentation, titled The New Threat Set: Science, Diplomacy, and International Policy in the Age of Globalization, will explore the implications for Canadian governance, policies and interests, and examine the revolution in culture, values and professional practice required to ensure that the proposed combination of science and diplomacy can deliver as advertised.
