On the future of foreign policy think tanks in Canada
Will foreign policy think tanks face the same fate as so many "old media" organizations? The average Canadian has better access to global news and analysis today through a handheld device than the expert analyst of 30 years ago working from published sources at a foreign policy think tank. Furthermore, the increasingly blurred boundaries between domestic and international issues have made the distinction between foreign policy and domestic policy less clear. Canadian foreign policy think tanks have to respond to these challenges, as well as to the broader problem of parochialism in Canadian society.
