This is an annual publication. The 2009-2010 edition was released January 2010.


Marking the 25th anniversary of the series, Canada Among Nations 2009-2010 focuses on how leading foreign and Canadian thinkers and doers assess Canada's prospects in a world in which the United States will become more pre-eminent and predominant. The rise of China, India, Russia, and Brazil – as well as the increased significance of Europe and the further development of Africa – are all transforming the context in which Canadians live. Given the change in the tone, style, and substance of American foreign policy, and the need to deal with unprecedented international financial problems and global economic retreat, the topic of this volume is especially timely.

Canada will need to formulate sound policies on key issues such as energy and environmental sustainability, nuclear nonproliferation, human rights, and trade and investment in key areas such as Afghanistan and the Middle East. Astute bilateral diplomacy and constructive engagement in multilateral forums such as the United Nations and the G20 will be crucial to Canada's success. Contributors to this volume critique Canada's performance on the world stage, offering advice on initiatives Canada can take in its own and in the common interest.

Canada Among Nations 2009-2010 contains a wide ranging series of essays. Contributors include: Kanti Bajpai, Nicholas Bayne, Marie Bernard-Meunier, Kwesi Botchwey, Lakhdar Brahimi, Derek Burney, Don Campbell, Jennifer Clapp, Jayantha Dhanapala, Paul Evans, Louise Fréchette, Gordon Giffin, John Graham, Angel Gurría, Fen Osler Hampson, Peter Heinbecker, Jorge Heine, Eric Helleiner, Gordon Houlden, Michael Kergin, Jeremy Kinsman, Arif Lalani, Claude Laverdure, Kishore Mahbubani, the Hon. John Manley, Patrick Martin, Carolyn McAskie, Donald McRae, Rohinton P. Medhora, Bessma Momani, Adil Najam, Sadaaki Numata, Robert A. Pastor, Thomas Pickering, Mei Ping, Ernie Regehr, Kenneth Roth, Andrés Rozental, David Runnalls, Cyrus Rustomjee, Dimitry Ryurikov, John Schram, Gordon Smith, Ramesh Thakur, Karsten D. Voigt, and Robert Wolfe.

For twenty-five years, Canada Among Nations has brought together leading scholars, practitioners, journalists, and members of the NGO community for an assessment of the country's foreign policy. The books in the series are widely adopted in Canadian foreign policy and international relations courses and have become a major publication of record on Canada's policies and actions in the world. Canada Among Nations is a product of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University, in cooperation with The Centre for International Governance Innovation.
