Canada’s Role in the Global Order With H.E. Bob Rae

Where does Canada fit into the global order today? Canada played an important role in building the U.S.-led world order in the post-World War II period. Its proximity to the U.S. has resulted in a complex relationship that is economic, political, and cultural. The four years of the Trump administration were a difficult period in the relationship, but better days seem ahead. What will the future bring?

Bob Rae, the ambassador and permanent representative of Canada to the United Nations, speaks with Graduate Center Professor John Torpey, director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies, about how Canada’s foreign policy has developed in the recent past, Canada’s role in international affairs, and its relationship with the U.S. Rae served as premier of Ontario from 1990 to 1995 and interim leader of the Liberal Party of Canada from 2011 to 2013. He has also recently served as Canada's special envoy to Myanmar and Canada's special envoy on humanitarian and refugee issues.
