The Relations Across the Taiwan Strait Since Tsai Ing-wen

Since Tsai Ing-wen’s election as President of Taiwan in January 2016, the relations across the Taiwan Strait have deteriorated. China had decided to ignore the Tsai Administration, isolate Taiwan on the international stage and intensified its military intimidations around the island. More importantly, the Chinese Communist Party even more so its united front work towards Taiwanese society. Using its unprecedented rise as a leverage, China also wants everyone to believe, particularly the Chinese society, that the reunification process has already started and is in full swing.

The War on Terror Gone Wrong

Daniel Livermore will be explaining his new book, Detained: Islamic Fundamentalist Extremism and the War on Terror.  After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Canadian agencies willingly collaborated in the War on Terror launched by the United States to destroy Al Qaeda. This partnership went seriously astray, however, amid a series of fundamental errors by Canadian agencies and their misplaced trust in American willingness to abide by both international and US laws against torture.

La haine selon la Cour suprême du Canada

French

On a assisté récemment au Canada à une multiplication d’actes de violence meurtrière envers des minorités, racisées, homosexuelles, religieuses. On assiste également, depuis les années 2000, à une multiplication de gestes non meurtriers, mais brutaux envers les mêmes minorités : insultes, incitation à la violence, agression corporelle, destruction de biens.
La conférence a pour objectif de s’interroger sur ces faits et comporte deux volets :
