Summary: Canada's thirty-four million people and trillion dollar GDP don't occupy much space on a planet of seven billion whose economy is now worth forty trillion dollars. The country is not a lightweight yet, but certainly its position as a power is shrinking. What does that mean for the country's foreign policy and its various players? What room is left, and for whom? In Canada Among Nations, 2007 a team of specialists explores the space that Canada currently occupies in the global policy
landscape and considers the bureaucratic players who manage this ''occupation.'' Looking at trade, the environment, development, defence, intellectual property rights, and, the biggest file of all, the United States, they examine the various games involved, from the relationship of the Prime Minister's Office with the foreign policy apparatus to the constraints imposed by Alberta's and Quebec's particular interests and takes on foreign policy.Contributors draw a subtle portrait: there are huge barriers, clearly, but most can be transcended and even leveraged. Much policy space remains and, with proper action, much more can be carved out.
