Fulbright Canada helps to bring Canadian and American thought-leaders to new corners. From February 20 to February 25, 2017, scholars and policy leaders met at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa to discuss an important and timely subject for Canada – navigating the future of trade and international economic cooperation between Canada and the United States.
Fulbright Canada, and the Center for the Study of Canada at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh, in partnership with the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa, hosted an international scholarly colloquium: Canada, the United States, and the Trade Regime. The future of multilateral trade, the U.S. administration’s policy, and the corresponding impact on Canada were of focus.
Events included, among others:
- An opening reception attended by the Governor of Hawaii, David Ige; the Consul General of Canada to San Francisco, Brandon Lee; the Dean of the College of Social Sciences at the UH Mānoa, Denis Eby Konan; and, President of UH Mānoa, David Lassner.
- A public Lecture, “Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples,” by Gerard Duhaime, Fulbright Canada Visiting Research Chair at UH Mānoa.
- Dr. Michael Hawes, CEO Fulbright Canada, and Chris Kirkey, Director of Center for the Study of Canada and Institute on Quebec Studies at SUNY Plattsburgh, will present a seminar on their book, Canadian Foreign Policy in a Unipolar World (Oxford University Press, 2016).
