"The compendium examines the contemporary foreign policy concerns and engagements of Canada including relocation and recalibration of its traditional liberal internationalist middle powermanship to address the exigencies of the evolving international order. Academics and practitioners of diplomacy analyze in-depth, themes relating to Canada's search for 'like minded' partners to promote international peace-keeping, human security, anti-personnel landmines ban and the post-9/11 challenges in terms of Canadian multilateralism and bilateral relations with US.

Scholars also trace the trajectory of Canada-India relations, delineating the historical opportunities and current challenges the two intermediate 'like-minded' partners encounter in their bilateral dealings and multilateralist pursuits.

The compendium is the outcome of the ongoing scholarly dialogue between Indian and Canadian scholars and foreign policy practitioners under the aegis of Canadian Studies Programme (CSP) of the Centre for Canadian, US and Latin American Studies, School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University and the Centre for Canadian Foreign Policy and Federalism. Waterloo University, Ontario. The CSP is a unique research-cum-teaching programme in an Indian University dedicated to building scholarly understanding of Canada in India." (jacket)
