I didn’t know freedom would be so cold:

English

In the face of ongoing challenges faced by LGBTI individuals around the world, Canada operates a refugee program that prioritizes the admission of individuals facing persecution on the basis of their sexuality.  This wonderfully successful program recognizes that although Canadian law officially recognizes the equality of LGBTI individuals, other countries – in Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond – continue to criminalize queer sexualities in horrific ways.  Yet even in Canada, LGBTI migrants face challenges in accessing sensitive and sexuality-appropriate services across a range of domains.

Rethinking the Emerging Power Approach to IPE

English

One of the preoccupations of Anglo-Saxon scholars over the last decade has been: what does the rise of the BRICS mean for the existing structure of the international system. Are these emerging actors going to tear down the post-World War Two order and try to take over? How will the global governance system change as new powerful voices speak up? Much of the response to these questions has leaned towards the apocryphal, with much talk of hegemonic transition and great power conflict.

Reconciliation After Genocide?

English

Terms like genocide and cultural genocide have been widely used to make sense of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools and some other aspects of settler colonial history. This presentation outlines how genocide was committed both in the schools and through the sixties scoop – both of which were means through which Indigenous children were forcibly removed from their families and communities. It also engages with how the Truth and Reconciliation Commission engaged with these concepts.

The return of illiberalism and the future of IPE research

English

The events of the past two years—ranging from Trump’s election, the Brexit vote, and the rise of the Far Right in Europe and around the world—raise some fundamental questions about the sustainability of the political and economic of the current (neo)liberal global order. This panel will tackle two key questions that these recent events raise:  what insights might international political economy (IPE) scholarship provide us into what is going on at the present moment; and what, if anything, do we need to rethink in IPE in order to make sense of the rise of illiberalism today.
