This year’s theme is “Politics in Uncertain Times,” as seen in the destabilizing activities of countries like Russia and North Korea; the unpredictability of important figures like US President Donald Trump; uncertainty surrounding significant policy and social issues like climate change, free trade, colonialism, and inequality; and the rising threat to liberal democracy posed by increasing populism, nativism, and support for authoritarian leaders. How can we explain or understand these phenomena? What prescriptions might be possible to combat them? What role might Canada play in confronting these issues, and in what ways is Canada vulnerable to their effects?
