Solidarity and subterfuge in a Palestinian camp

Drawing on ethnographic material from the Shatila camp in Beirut and the informal gathering of Jal el Bahr in Tyre, in southern Lebanon, this talk explores the possibilities suggested by various forms of collaborative practice within these marginalized communities. As the Palestinian national movement weakens, and the refugee community becomes more fractured— spatially, socially, and politically—new forms of sociality and provisional association, mostly forged in the informal economy, are emerging in and around camps.

Trump, Year One: Chaos and Confusion on the Potomac

As Donald Trump's presidency approaches its first anniversary, join our panel for a review of the past 12 months and a look ahead to what we might expect next. From twitter storm to twitter storm, the Trump presidency has been marked by controversy, chaos and confusion. Tensions with North Korea have escalated, the Paris climate agreement abandoned, travel bans imposed, while the President has failed to repeal Obamacare and his administration's links with Russia remain under investigation by the FBI.

Canadian and American Defence Policy

The establishment of new Administrations in both Canada and the United States in the past two years has led to a substantial amount of overhaul of both countries' defence strategy frameworks. Please join us for an American perspective on Canadian defence strategy generally, and a discussion of how the Canadian approach fits into long standing notions of American defence strategy, as well as some conjecture about how the American "new normal" in the Trump Administration will affect the road ahead.

Canada’s approach to peacekeeping in fragile states

Since taking office in late 2015, the Trudeau government has clearly signaled its intent to reorient Canada’s engagement in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS) – by increasing its engagement in UN peace operations especially in Africa, and by taking a feminist approach to diplomacy, development and security in such contexts.

What has the Canadian government accomplished in that regard over the last two years?
