The Canadian government released its much-awaited Indo-Pacific Strategy in November 2022. The strategy calls out China as an "increasingly disruptive global power" that must be challenged on profound areas of disagreement despite the necessity of cooperation on global issues. It also calls for deeper cooperation with democracies such as India, Japan, and South Korea. How should we understand the strategy, and how can it achieve success? This event featured Professor Janice Stein, who co-chaired the government's Indo-Pacific Advisory Committee, and Kim Nossal, Queen's University political scientist and commentator on Canadian foreign policy. They shared their thoughts about the history of Canadian engagement with the region, the objectives of the new strategy, and challenges they foresee in its implementation.
