"A useful and important addition to courses on Canadian foreign policy, particularly in that it raises issues surrounding ethics and security in a theoretical manner ... An impressive cautionary tale of human security as a foreign policy objective."-- Claire Turenne SjolanderDepartment of Political Science, University of Ottawa"The work is highly relevant to the current discourse on the evolving concept of security, and makes a genuine contribution to the underlying theoretical discussion ... it will appeal to a wide audience and, because of its broad range of selected issue areas, will serve as a very useful textbook for courses on Canadian foreign policy."-- Harald von RiekhoffDepartment of Political Science, Carleton UniversityCanada has long been considered a model peacekeeping nation -- a country deeply committed to the promotion and enforcement of human security on a global level. Astute observers of politics and international relations, however, cannot fail to recognize that the ethical concerns behind peacekeeping interests do not always coincide with the goals of foreign policy. Ethics and Security in Canadian Foreign Policy presents an incisive and informed analysis of the ever-evolving nexus of ethics, security, and international relations. Divided into thematic sections, the chapters include both theoretical and policy-relevant commentaries on Canadian nuclear policy, democratization, human rights, economic security and development, the environment, peacekeeping, and humanitarian intervention. Particular concepts -- soft power, moral vision, good governance, middle powermanship, humane internationalism, and niche diplomacy -- are examined with reference to their implications for Canadian foreign policy making.Drawing together a compelling collection of new work by outstanding Canadian researchers on contemporary issues of ethics and security in Canadian foreign policy, and concluding with seminar questions for further debate, this insightful book will be welcomed by both teachers and students of international relations, Canadian foreign policy, and political science.Rosalind Irwin teaches in the Department of Political Science at York University and is a research associate at York's Centre for International and Security Studies.
