Canada and International Affairs
Palgrave’s Canada and International Affairs is a professional and practical series showcasing scholarship by Canadian scholars of international affairs and foreign scholars who study Canada’s place in the world. The purpose of the series is to examine international issues that affect Canada and to provide Canadian perspectives on international affairs focused on current trends, events, and themes of policy interest and relevance. The series will interest students and academics dealing with Canadian foreign policy, national defence, international security, overseas development, and issues of trade and economics, among others. By focusing on policy problems, the series will be of use to policymakers and practitioners in the public and private sectors who want access to timely, rigorous, informed, and independent analysis on the leading issues of the day. We encourage submissions from interested applicants studying, teaching, or working on: · Canadian foreign policy or Canadian politics · Comparative foreign policy or public policy · International affairs and/or public policy · Policy management and/or public administration The Canada and International Affairs series is structured around three types of publications: 1. As the anchor, Canada Among Nations is the series' most recognisable annual contribution. Canada Among Nations is an established volume produced by the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA), Canada’s oldest, largest, and top-ranked interdisciplinary graduate school of international affairs and a full and founding member of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (ASPIA) centrally located in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. Canada Among Nations has been in place since 1984 and become part of the international affairs studies landscape, in Canada and abroad, for 30+ years. Canada Among Nations provides thematic reviews of key international policy issues affecting Canada and the world and has been used extensively in university courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Looking ahead, its purpose is to provide a broad-spectrum review of the year in passing and focus on the pressing issues and agendas facing the country and its place in the world. We encourage edited volumes in the range of 50,000-100,000 words. 2. In addition, the series features work by international scholars and practitioners working on key themes or policies. These compilations will consist of comparative multi-country studies against which Canada’s performance can be better understood in its proper context, relative to other similar countries. Examples include subjects like comparative evaluations of foreign aid programs of OECD countries or defence spending by NATO member-states. These studies follow the Pivot Series format. We encourage monographs in the range of 25,000-50,000 words and edited volumes in the range of 50,000-100,000 words. 3. Finally, the series showcases work by scholars from Canadian universities and research groups, featuring structured analyses of Canadian foreign policy and international affairs. Manuscripts by individual authors as well as thematically-oriented edited volumes, produced by established professors, emerging scholars, and senior doctoral students are welcome. We encourage monographs in the range of 25,000-50,000 words. The Canada and International Affairs series is a venue for policy-relevant publications intended for Canadian scholars of international affairs, foreign scholars who study Canada’s place in the world, and students studying Canadian foreign policies and decision-making, including but not limited to defence, security, development, and economic policy. By focusing on policy problems, the series will be of use to policymakers and practitioners in the public and private sectors who want access to timely, rigorous, informed, and independent analysis on the leading issues of the day. The goal is to provide policymakers from within the Canadian government with the benefit of this knowledge and expertise, as well as with opportunities to publish themselves and contribute to this diverse body of scholarship.
