about this item

A bold call for a Canadian foreign policy that advances the basic freedoms which enable peace, stability, development, and security.What ends should a democratic country’s foreign policy serve? Avoiding diplomatic disputes? Keeping allies happy? Promoting national and global security? While a qualified yes to all of these is a logical answer,Two Freedoms argues for something more, something that reflects our place as one of one of the most fortunate countries in the world.Genuine security, both at home and abroad, requires commitment to key freedoms from want and fear. How can a foreign policy be designed that makes the pursuit of these freedoms real and practical? What are the costs of allowing these freedoms to die or diminish? And if we are to design a genuine foreign policy of purpose and substance, what would it mean for our diplomats, our military, our development aid, our relations with important multilateral organizations like the U.N.? To achieve a goal, a foreign policy needs good strategy, tactics, and design. These key elements are found in Two Freedoms.A bold call for a Canadian foreign policy that advances the basic freedoms which enable peace, stability, development, and security.What ends should a democratic country’s foreign policy serve?
