The 2019 FPA Research Excellence Award Symposium

Laura Macdonald

Will the changes in North American trade reinvigorate 1990s-style domestic and transnational activism?

What will be the impact of the new USMCA trade agreement?

Has there been greater input from both business and non-business civil society organizations to influence the nature and content of the Canadian negotiations?

Carleton University’s Laura Macdonald, a Professor in the Department of Political Science, raises these questions and more at a day-long symposium organized into three panels.

Join scholars from Canada, Mexico and the United States, and civil-society representatives, in a discussion of this important topic.
