    Description

    Many Canadian municipalities have taken hits to their budgets due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But what has the effect been on municipalities around the world? Have municipalities in different countries fared better than others? What accounts for any differences? What needs to be done to ensure municipalities bounce back?

    On October 26, this webinar will explore the above questions through a discussion with experts that have worked in Latin America, Africa, Europe, and North America. This is the second of two events exploring the effects of COVID-19 on municipal finance. For more information on the first event, visit https://munkschool.utoronto.ca/imfg/

    Description

    Presented by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences of Canada, the Big Thinking lecture series is committed to bringing big ideas in the humanities and social sciences to new audiences – creating opportunities for researchers to challenge and inspire policy makers, citizens, academics, students and community members on the critical questions of our time.

    The next Big Thinking lecture is happening on Tuesday, October 27, 12:00 – 1:00 pm ET. This lecture by Rachel Brickner, moderated by Ito Peng and entitled “Care is on the ballot: Why COVID-19 should push American voters to pay greater attention to the care economy,” will show how the dilemmas about reopening schools offer insights into the importance of taking the care economy seriously this election – and the implications for how Americans provide and receive care if voters do not.

  • Tuesday, October 27th Book Launch: Forgotten Values: The World Bank and Environmental Partnerships, by Teresa Kramarz

    Description

    Multi-stakeholder partnerships have become an increasingly common form of global governance. Partnerships, usually between international organizations (IOs) or state agencies and such private actors as NGOs, businesses, and academic institutions, have even been promoted as the gold standard of good governance—participatory, innovative, and well-funded. And yet these partnerships often fail to live up to the values that motivated their establishment. In this book, Teresa Kramarz examines this gap between promise and performance by analyzing partnerships in biodiversity conservation initiatives launched by the World Bank.

    Eurasia Initiative

    Description

    Recent events in Belarus are a reflection of deep changes transforming the East European space – changes that caught many by surprise, but will undoubtedly have significant regional and global implications and are yet to be understood.

    A panel of Belarusian and Canadian experts will explore unfiltered perspectives on what’s happening in the country, what potential scenarios may transpire and what that means for Belarus, Canada and the world in a virtual roundtable.

    Dr. Zina J. Gimpelevich is a Professor Emerita at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Born in Minsk, Biełaruś, she came to Canada in 1979. Gimpelevich earned her Ph.D. in Slavic Studies from the University of Ottawa (1987). She worked for the Department of External Affairs and the University of Ottawa, teaching Russian language and culture (1980-1990). Her research interests are Biełarusian and Russian languages, literature, and culture. She has published seven books (the last received award from CAS and Taylor & Francis, 2019), thirteen book chapters, and over eighty articles. Gimpelevich co-authored one textbook and has given over eighty presentations at professional conferences. Zina Gimpelevich has been one of the three founding members of the Canadian Relief Fund for the Children of Chernobyl in Biełaruś (together with its first President, Mme Joanna Survilla [President of the Biełarusian Government in Exile] and Mrs. Paulina Smith-Paškievič). She was the first Vice-president of this national organization. Gimpelevich served as the President of the Canadian Institute of Arts and Sciences (BINiM, Canada 2002-2017) and its Vice-President (2017-2020). ZG served as the President and the Past – President of the Canadian Association of Slavists (CAS, 2008-2014) and was its Honorary President (2017-18). She is also the Honorary life- time member of the Biełarusian Writers’ Union (2017-) and other organizations. Zina Gimpelevich is active in the North American Biełarusian community. One of her dreams is to see her native country follow the example of her adoptive country, Canada, and to become democratic, prosperous, and free.

She has presented at a number of international conferences for teachers, worked as interpreter for international organizations, such as the World Bank, UNESCO, Council of Europe, ICOM and others, which helped her develop a global perspective on the developments in various fields.

    Description

    The Queer Of Color Analysis in Education Research Institute (QOCAERI)’s primary goal is to bring together researchers whose substantive knowledge, theoretical insight, and methodological expertise can be assembled in ways that build upon and reach beyond familiar modes of thinking concerning conundrums or problems related to LGBTQI+ issues in formal, non-formal and informal education. In this 1.5-hour webinar six BIPOC scholars based in the United States who mobilize queer of colour analysis and critique in their work will discuss how they are re-imagining and redefining education in times of COVID and anti-Blackness.

    Panel 1 (5:40-6:15pm): Cindy Cruz, Ed Brockenbrough and Roland Coloma will consider how trauma, stigma, violence and mourning haunt our everyday lives, including the streets, schools and transnational networks that are the sites of education.

    Panel 2 (6:20-6:55pm): Steve Mobley Jr., Kia Darling Hammond and Vijay Kanagala will highlight how queer of colour communities are forging new ways of thinking and enacting healing, resilience, resistance and thriving in the midst of unprecedent pandemic- and anti-Black racism-related death.

    East Asia Seminar Series

    Description

    The struggle between state agents and grassroots activists is central to politics everywhere. Is this dynamic any different in China? How have state repression and grassroots activism evolved and varied across localities in China, the world’s most powerful authoritarian state? Dan Mattingly (Yale) on his new book, “The Art of Political Control in China” and Juan Wang (McGill) on environmental protestors in China. Sida Liu (Toronto) provides commentary on the “cat and mouse” game between repressive agents and protestors.
    ___________________

    Daniel Mattingly is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Yale University. His current research looks at how the military, protest, and nationalism shape Chinese politics. His first book, The Art of Political Control in China, was published by Cambridge in 2020.

    Juan Wang is an Associate Professor of Political Science at McGill University. Her research interests include contentious politics, and law and politics, with a country focus of China. Her works have appeared in a number of academic journals, including the China Quarterly, Modern China, the Journal of Contemporary China, Asian Journal of Law and Society, Problems of Post Communism, and Crime, Law, and Social Change. Her first book, entitled The Sinews of State Power: The Rise and Demise of the Cohesive Local State in China (New York: Oxford University Press, 2017), focuses on the intergovernmental relationship among China’s county, township, and village levels of government in explaining the persistence of collective resistance in rural areas.

    Sida Liu is Associate Professor of Sociology and Law at the University of Toronto. His research interests include the sociology of law, organizations and professions, criminal justice, globalization, and social theory, with a geographical focus on the Greater China Region. Professor Liu has conducted extensive empirical research on China’s legal reform and legal profession, including the globalization of corporate law firms, the political mobilization of criminal defense lawyers, the feminization of judges, and the career mobility of law practitioners. One of his current research projects examines influence of colonialism and authoritarianism on the professions in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Liu is the author of three books in Chinese and English, most recently, Criminal Defense in China: The Politics of Lawyers at Work (with Terence C. Halliday, Cambridge University Press, 2016).

    Agenda 2020: Making Sense of the American Election

    Description

    How did Donald Trump win the 2016 “Blue Wall” states—Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania—that made him president? Was it former Obama voters switching to the Republicans? Or a surge of people who didn’t vote in 2012? Or abstentions by usual Democratic voters? The calculation is not easy, primarily because surveys are seriously misleading about turnout while voter files provide no information about the voters’ choice of candidate. We show how to use those two data sources, along with actual vote returns, to resolve ongoing debates about how Trump won. Then we discuss the implications for the 2020 presidential election.

    Bio: Chris Achen is the Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences Emeritus at Princeton University. His primary research interests are public opinion, elections, and the realities of democratic politics, along with the statistical challenges that arise from those fields. He is the author or co-author of six books, including Democracy for Realists (with Larry Bartels) in 2016. He has also published many articles. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has received fellowships from the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, the National Science Foundation, and Princeton’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics. He was the founding president of the Political Methodology Society, and he received the first career achievement award from The Political Methodology Section of The American Political Science Association in 2007. He has served on the top social science board at the National Science Foundation, and he was the chair of the national Council for the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) from 2013-2015. He is also the recipient of an award from the University of Michigan for lifetime achievement in training graduate students and a student-initiated award from Princeton University for graduate student mentoring.

  • Thursday, November 5th “Drawn Apart: Rebecca Wanzo and Lauren McLeod Cramer in Conversation About 'The Content of Our Caricature'”

    Description

    Definitively addressing the problem with debates about “good” and “bad” black representation, The Content of Our Caricature: African American Comic Art and Political Belonging (New York University Press, 2020) explains what happens when Black cartoonists revisit and reanimate the archive of the racial grotesque. Black comics and cartoons that appeared in black newspapers at the beginning of the twentieth century, underground comix independently produced and distributed in the 1970s and today’s big-budget film adaptations of superhero comics share complex imaginings of the political potential and limitations of caricature. Wanzo’s book reads the work of a rarely acknowledged lineage of Black cartoonists alongside comic and cartoon figures of American citizenship—images of the romantic revolutionary, the soldier and the child. Black comics recall the ways blackness is rendered incommensurable with American citizenship when it shares the frame with these idealized tropes and, instead of abandoning this history of representation, they leverage its elasticity. As a result, using horror and humor, Black cartoonists visualize critiques of American visual culture that are not bound by time, space, or medium.

    In conversation about The Content of Our Caricature will be author Dr. Rebecca Wanzo, Chair and Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and Affiliate Professor of American Culture Studies at Washington University in St. Louis and Dr. Lauren McLeod Cramer, Assistant Professor in the Cinema Studies Institute at the University of Toronto.

    Symposium Participant Bios:

    Hae Yeon Choo is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto. She is an author of Decentering Citizenship: Gender, Labor, and Migrant Rights in South Korea (Stanford University Press, 2016), a comparative study of three groups of Filipina women in South Korea: factory workers, wives of South Korean men, and hostesses at American military camptown clubs. Her current research examines the politics of land ownership in contemporary South Korea, delving into macro-level political contestations over land rights, together with the narratives of people who pursue class mobility through real estate speculation. She has also translated Audre Lorde’s Sister Outsider and Patricia Hill Collins’s Black Feminist Thought into Korean.

    Laam Hae is an Associate Professor in the department of Politics at York University. Her research areas are urban political economy, neoliberal urbanism and urban social movements. She is the author of The Gentrification of Nightlife and the Right to the City: Regulating Spaces of Social Dancing in New York (2012, Routledge), and co-edited On the Margins of Urban South Korea: Core Location as Method and Praxis (2019, University of Toronto Press). She is currently developing a research project that examines the spatiality of social reproduction and gender inequality in South Korea.

    Hyun-Chul Kim is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Geography & Planning, University of Toronto. Her research interests include the varied degree of confined, segregated spaces in East Asian regions, from nursing homes to prisons, considering urban constructions, intimacy, and disability. She is writing her dissertation tentatively titled “Between Communal ‘Village’ and an Atomized ‘Home’: Blurring the boundaries of community organization movement and segregated-confined welfare spaces of South Korea in 1950s-1960s”.

    Seung Cheol Lee received his PhD from Columbia University in 2018 and is now an assistant professor of anthropology at Seoul National University. His research interests are focused on the question of how neoliberal financialization has reshaped people’s social, affective, ethical, and political lives. He is currently working on a book manuscript that examines how the ethicality and sociality of gift-giving are grafted onto neoliberal market rationality in the social economy sector in South Korea.

    Yewon Andrea Lee is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Korean Studies at George Washington University. As a political and labor sociologist and urban ethnographer, Yewon is broadly interested in how speculative real estate interests increasingly dictate the shape and character of urban landscapes and how, in response, ordinary people organize everyday space and practice politics of dissent. Her dissertation, Precarious Workers in the Speculative City: The Untold Gentrification Story of Tenant Shopkeepers’ Displacement and Resistance in Seoul, examines how tenant shopkeepers, who are often labeled as either micro-entrepreneurs or petit bourgeoisie and overlooked as workers, are emerging as agents of social change. She sheds light on the fascinating case of tenant shopkeepers in Seoul organizing to expose the precarity of their livelihoods and, along the way, finding their collective voice as workers.

    Yoonkyung Lee is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and the director of the Center for the Study of Korea at the University of Toronto. She is a political sociologist specializing in labor politics, social movements, political representation, and the political economy of neoliberalism with a regional focus on East Asia. She is the author of Militants or Partisans: Labor Unions and Democratic Politics in Korea and Taiwan (Stanford University Press 2011) and numerous journal articles that appeared in Globalizations, Studies in Comparative International Development, Asian Survey, Journal of Contemporary Asia, and Critical Asian Studies.

    Hyun Ok Park teaches sociology and the director of the Korean Office for Research and Education (KORE) at York University. With archival and ethnographic research, her research investigates global capitalism in colonial, industrial, and financial forms, democracy, socialism, and post-socialist transition. She is the author of Two Dreams in One Bed: Empire, Social Life, and the Origins of the North Korean Revolution in Manchuria (Duke University Press, 2005). Her latest book is The Capitalist Unconscious: From Korean Unification to Transnational Korea (Columbia University Press, 2015). She is completing a book manuscript, “A Sublime Disaster: The Sewŏl Ferry Incident and the Politics of the Living Dead.”

    Hyun Bang Shin is Professor of Geography and Urban Studies and Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre at LSE. His research centres on the critical analysis of the political economic dynamics of urbanisation with particular attention to cities in Asian countries such as China, South Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Singapore. His research themes include speculative urbanisation; the politics of redevelopment; displacement; gentrification; housing; the right to the city; mega-events as urban spectacles; mega-projects. He has published widely in major international journals and contributed to numerous books on the above themes. His books include Global Gentrifications: Uneven Development and Displacement (Policy Press, 2015); Planetary Gentrification (Polity Press, 2016); Anti Gentrification: What is to be Done (Dongnyok, 2017); Neoliberal Urbanism, Contested Cities and Housing in Asia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019).

    Jesook Song is Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on contemporary urban transformation and welfare issues, including homelessness, youth unemployment, single women’s housing, mental health in South Korea. She is author of South Koreans in the Debt Crisis: The Creation of a Neoliberal Welfare Society (Duke University Press, 2009) and Living on Your Own: Single Women, Rental Housing, and Post-Revolutionary Affect in Contemporary South Korea (SUNY Press, 2014), On the Margins of Urban South Korea: Core Location as Method and Praxis (University of Toronto Press 2019, co-edited with Laam Hae).

    Making and Remaking Central Europe Lecture Series

    Description

    Together with Dr. Buriánek, who spent eight years as an adviser to Czech President Václav Havel, Professor Falk will facilitate a conversation examining the importance of Havel’s thoughts on civil society not only for the transition from Communism but also for democratic stability. How have Havel’s values still resonate throughout Central and Eastern Europe and in what ways? And how does remembrance of Havel fit into the “politics” of memory in the Czech Republic today?

    Petr Buriánek is currently Consul General of the Czech Republic in Toronto. With a doctorate in history from Charles University in Prague, Dr. Buriánek has had a distinguished diplomatic career, having served with the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs in several ambassadorial roles – including Croatia, Italy and Malta – as well as holding regional advisory portfolios within the Ministry’s Prague offices. Prior to entering the world of diplomacy, he served in the Office of the President of the Czech Republic as Adviser to then President Václav Havel between 1994 and 2002.

    Barbara J. Falk is Professor, Department of Defence Studies at the Canadian Forces College/Royal Military College of Canada, and author of The Dilemmas of Dissidence: Citizen Intellectuals and Philosopher Kings (2003) and Political Trials: Causes and Categories (2008). Her primary research interest is political trials, particularly in the persecution and prosecution of domestic dissent. She is currently writing a book on comparative political trials across the East-West divide during the early Cold War, examining the Rajk, Slánský, Dennis and Rosenberg trials. Prior to her academic career, she worked in the both the private and public sectors in human resources, labour relations and women’s issues.

    Series

    Hellenic Studies Program

    Description

    The place of religion in Greece’s public education system has been the focal point for intense debate in the last decade. The debate has seen contributions from a broad range of actors, including parents of students in the Greek public-school system, Greek political parties across the spectrum, the Orthodox Church of Greece, two especially vocal unions of theologians, the Greek Supreme Administrative Court, and the European Court of Human Rights. This lecture addresses the various relevant claims, concerns and actions of each of these actors and teases out ways in which the debate over religious education in Greece reveals perennial problems in the relationship between religion and national identity in the Greek context, and between church and state.

    Effie Fokas is a Senior Research Fellow at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) and a Research Associate of the London School of Economics Hellenic Observatory. She was Principal Investigator of the European Research Council-funded project on grassroots impact of European Court of Human Rights religious freedoms case law (Grassrootsmobilise), based at ELIAMEP. Her publications include Islam in Europe: Diversity, Identity and Influence, co-edited with Aziz Al-Azmeh; Religious America, Secular Europe?, coauthored with Peter Berger and Grace Davie; The European Court of Human Rights and Minority Religions, co-edited with James T. Richardson; and over 50 articles and book chapters exploring religion at the intersection with politics, law, human rights, nationalism, and European identity.

    Description

    Join us at the Centre for the Study of the United States for the F. Ross Johnson Virtual Colloquium on Precarity. “Lives on the Edge” is about the different forms precarity takes – a social, political and economic balancing act disproportionately experienced by members of already marginalized and disadvantaged groups. We will be welcoming five guest speakers who will give talks on the following topics:

    “Home Care Fault Lines: Tensions and Alliances across Flexibility and Security”
    Cynthia Cranford, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Toronto

    Precarious employment scholarship shows how flexible labour markets generate growing insecurity for workers and rising profits for employers, since legislation, and many unions, take the Fordist factory and its ‘standard’ (full-time, permanent) employment relationship as the norm. We know much less about the flexibility-security trade off when claims for flexibility come not from profit motives but from social service needs of citizens. This presentation uncovers flexibility-security tensions within personal support services – which provides help with intimate daily activities like bathing, eating and housework – based on the forthcoming book Home Care Fault Lines: Understanding Tensions and Creating Alliances. Home Care Fault Lines analyzes the multiple dynamics that exacerbate or mitigate tension between workers’ claims for security in work and employment and elderly and disabled people’s need for flexibility in service delivery and excavates the potential for flexible care and secure work. Based on interviews with over 300 people it includes the vantage points of workers, service users, labour and disability activists, employers and state officials to compare four state-funded programs in California and Ontario, together covering assistance to adults with physical disabilities and elderly people, to people across and within class, racial and gender lines and inside and outside of families. This presentation compares a California case with two Ontario cases to illustrate the importance of analyzing flexibility and security at both the labour market and more intimate labour process levels, of conceptualizing tensions between home care users and workers based on their claims for flexibility and security at both levels, and of placing tensions within the social organization of work. This analysis confirms the labour market flexibility-security trade off highlighted in precarious employment scholarship and extends it to consider flexibility-security tensions in intimate labour processes. It underscores the need for collective representation and organizations that recognize tensions and support compromises in the labour process, as well as labour market intermediaries and adequate state funding, in order to support both flexible care and secure work.

    Bio:
    Cynthia Cranford is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto. Her research analyzes the nexus of gender, labor and migration through in-depth case studies and broader analyses of precarious work in the U.S. and Canada. Her book Home Care Fault Lines: Understanding Tensions and Creating Alliances was published with Cornell University’s ILR Press June 2020. Cranford is also the co-author of Self-employed Workers Organize: Law, Policy and Unions (McGill-Queens University Press) and her work appears in academic journals such as Work, Employment and Society, Social Problems, Relations Industrielles, Labor Studies Journal, Just Labour, Gender & Society, Critical Sociology, the American Sociological Review and in several edited volumes.

    “Administrative burden, precarity, and public policy”
    Pamela Herd, Professor of Public Policy, Georgetown University

    This talk will focus on how conservatives are employing administrative burdens as a mechanism to weaken social welfare policies. In short, conservatives are using the administrative state to undermine policies they’d like to dismantle, but have been able to do so via legislative change. Administrative burdens are the learning, compliance, and psychological costs that people encounter when to trying to access, and stay on, critical social welfare supports. In short, they are the administrative barriers that preclude access to programs for which people should otherwise be eligible. I will detail how these newly constructed burdens, in programs ranging from Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance to the Social Security Disability programs and Medicare, will increase health and economic precarity among poor Americans, with disproportionate impacts on women and black Americans.

    Bio:
    Pamela Herd’s research focuses on inequality and how it intersects with health, aging, and policy. She is also an expert in survey research and biodemographic methods. She is currently the Chair of the Board of Overseers for the General Social Survey, a board member for the Population Association of American, and a standing member of a National Institutes for Health review panel for the Social and Population Sciences.

Her work has appeared in journals such as the American Sociological Review, Social Forces, the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, Gender & Society, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Her recent book Administrative Burden: Policymaking by other Means was reviewed in the New York Review of Books.

    “The Great Balancing Act: Households, Debt, and Economic Insecurity”
    Michelle Maroto, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Alberta

    Many households in the United States regularly engage in balancing acts. Each month, they try to figure out how to cover their bills on often limited incomes, while worrying what might happen if an unexpected expense comes up. This situation is not uncommon. Due in part to the rise of nonstandard employment and declining social safety nets, balancing finances is much more precarious for households these days. What happens when households are no longer able to keep up this balancing act? How do households respond to economic insecurity? In answering such questions, this talk draws on data from the U.S. Survey of Consumer Finances to examine varying experiences of economic insecurity and households’ strategies for managing economic insecurity with a special emphasis on the influence of household debt levels.

    Bio:
    Michelle Maroto is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Alberta. Her recent projects address the many dimensions of wealth inequality, the role of household structure in determining economic security, and labor market outcomes for people with different types of disabilities. She is currently embarking on a large-scale mixed methods project that will bring together secondary data, multiple online surveys, and in-depth interviews to provide a better understanding of the complicated dynamics behind social class in Canada.

    “Feeding the Crisis: Welfare Precarity in the 21st Century United States”
    Maggie Dickinson, Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Guttman Community College – CUNY

    Since the Turn of the 21st Century, the food safety net in the United States has expanded dramatically, contradicting the conventional wisdom that welfare programs have been continually cut back since the 1980’s. Food assistance, including federal programs like SNAP (formerly food stamps) and emergency food programs like soup kitchens and food pantries, have become the leading edge of the response to poverty and growing economic insecurity. Food assistance, as it is currently structured, offers a modicum of care to low wage workers, excludes people on the margins of the formal labor force, and entrenches long standing beliefs about the role of charity and the state in addressing human needs. By creating distinctions between a so-called ‘deserving’ working poor and a stigmatized and excluded reserve army of labor, the food safety net is feeding the broader economic crisis experienced by working class people today. And yet, paying close attention to the political insights of hungry people points to the ways the current welfare state in the U.S. could be transformed to end hunger and precarity.

    Bio:
    Maggie Dickinson is an assistant professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Guttman Community College – CUNY. Her first book, Feeding the Crisis: Care and Abandonment in America’s Food Safety Net, is published by the University of California Press. As a cultural anthropologist, her research is broadly concerned with food systems, the welfare state, inequality and the politics of redistribution.

    “Race, Inequality, and Mobility: The Role of Violence”
    Trevon D. Logan, Professor of Economics and Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, The Ohio State University

    Violence plays a large role in historical inequality. This talk will highlight the role that violence has played in resource theft from Black Americans and from the persistence of inequality politically and economically in the US today.

    Bio: Dr. Trevon D. Logan graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He went on to receive two master’s degrees demography and economics and his doctoral degree in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Logan is an internationally recognized scholar in economic demography, economic history and applied microeconomics. His current research focuses on historical health patterns, racial discrimination, political economy, mortality, morbidity, and racial disparities in health. His award-winning research has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, the Economist, NBC, Bloomberg, CNN, and other major media outlets.

    Description

    COVID-19 has challenged the City of Toronto and municipal governments across the country like never before. The City has adapted to respond to the increased and profound needs of Toronto’s residents, businesses, and neighbourhoods, especially those most impacted by the pandemic – racialized, Indigenous, and equity-seeking communities. To protect lives and livelihoods it has worked closely and effectively across governments including with other cities in the region, institutions, and community partners.

    To successfully recover and renew our city, the City cannot do it all and it cannot do it alone. Responding to COVID-19 has demonstrated how effective governments can be when they prioritize collaboration and the well-being of all Canadians. A “whole of governments” approach will continue to be critical as we lay the foundation for a shared recovery amidst the ongoing uncertainty and challenges the pandemic presents. Collaboration is critical to achieve shared success of governments, communities, agencies, academic institutions and the private sector.

    What does Toronto and the region need to recover from COVID-19 and build back stronger? How can we build on recent successes and continue to address and overcome the constraints and barriers that have historically limited effective intergovernmental and intersectoral collaboration? What will partnership look like across the GTHA?

    Toronto’s City Manager Chris Murray will share his thoughts on the learnings of the last several months and what he sees as the way forward.

    Speaker
    Chris Murray is City Manager of the City of Toronto.
    Moderator
    Jan De Silva is President and CEO of the Toronto Region Board of Trade.

    Description

    The Centre for the Study of Global Japan will be welcoming Professor Saori N. Katada from the University of Southern California, to introduce her new book, ‘Japan’s New Regional Reality – Geoeconomic Strategy in the Asia-Pacific.’

    Book Description:
    Since the mid-1990s, Japan’s regional economic strategy has transformed. Once characterized by bilateralism, informality, and neomercantilism, Japanese policy has shifted to a new liberal strategy emphasizing regional institution building and rule setting. As two major global powers, China and the United States, wrestle over economic advantages, Japan currently occupies a pivotal position capable of tipping the geoeconomic balance in the region.

    Japan’s New Regional Reality offers a comprehensive analysis of Japan’s geoeconomic strategy that reveals the country’s role in shaping regional economic order in the Asia-Pacific. Saori N. Katada explains Japanese foreign economic policy in light of both international and domestic dynamics. She points out the hurdles to implementing a state-led liberal strategy, detailing how domestic political and institutional changes have been much slower and stickier than the changing regional economics. Katada highlights state-market relations and shows how big businesses have responded to the country’s interventionist policies. The book covers a wide range of economic issues including trade, investment, finance, currency, and foreign aid. Japan’s New Regional Reality is a meticulously researched study of the dynamics that have contributed to economic and political realities in the Asia-Pacific today, with significant implications for future regional trends. (Columbia University Press)

    Bio:
    Saori N. Katada is Professor of Political Science and International Relations Department at University of Southern California. Her new book Japan’s New Regional Reality: Geoeconomic Strategy in the Asia-Pacific was published by Columbia University Press in July 2020. She is also a co-author of two recent books: The BRICS and Collective Financial Statecraft (Oxford University Press, 2017), and Taming Japan’s Deflation: The Debate over Unconventional Monetary Policy (Cornell University Press, 2018). She has her Ph.D. is from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Political Science), and her B.A. from Hitotsubashi University (Tokyo). Before joining USC, she served as a researcher at the World Bank in Washington D.C., and as International Program officer at the UNDP in Mexico City.

    Description

    The recent border skirmishes between India and China have brought to the surface the growing prospect of transboundary water conflict as an emerging flashpoint in the Himalayas. While India has bilateral water sharing treaties with all its neighbours in South Asia, the last decade has highlighted the challenge of encouraging and including China as an important stakeholder within transboundary water governance in the region. However, a disputed land border between the Asian giants, new rounds of skirmishes between their respective armies and the reluctance of both countries to move beyond bilateral approaches on water sharing has stymied transboundary cooperation on all major river basins in Himalayan South Asia. Our panel of water experts will examine the impact of recent developments on the prospects for peace based on current water cooperation; as well as the future of transboundary water agreements in the larger South Asian region.
