BIG Talk — Security. Cooperation. Governance.: The Canada–United States Open Border Paradox

Learn about a fascinating new open-access volume on Canada–US border and security policies: Security. Cooperation. Governance.: The Canada–United States Open Border Paradox (University of MichiganPress, 2023).

Join BIG Program Director Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly, co-editors Professors Christian Leuprecht and Todd Hataley, along with contributors Drs. Jamie Ferrill, Laurie Trautman, Geoffrey Hale, HeatherNicol, and Carolina Reyes Marquez for a conversation about managing and administering (one of) the world's most successful, secure and prosperous cross-border relationships. In an age when politicsoften frames borders as a problem, this book posits key lessons from the Canada–US border on fostering bilateral and binational coordination, cooperation and collaboration.

Sectoral and geographic diversity of cross-border interdependence of the world's largest bilateral trade relationship makes the Canada–US border a living laboratory for studying the interaction oftrade, security, and other border policies that challenge conventional centralized approaches to national security. As state borders have evolved in ways that serve the interests of centralgovernments in security and the regulation of trade, the webinar discusses border and security policies that have evolved from successive trade agreements since the 1950s, punctuated by new andemerging challenges to security in the twenty-first century.

This BIG_Talk is being delivered in partnership with the Institute for Intergovernmental Relations (IIGR) at Queen's University. Learn more about the IIGR here.
