Research Group – Update

The three Research Groups met together on Thursday evening May 26 to compare notes and provide feedback on one another’s work. The Innovation and Prosperity group is taking a critical look at the prevailing view in the media that there is little innovation on the part of Canadian business. The Security and Conflict Resolution group is attempting to situate the purchase of the F-35 joint strike fighter within Canada’s broader strategic priorities. The Global Power Structures groups is taking a look at the domestic and social underpinnings of American decline, and the basis of the purported rise of Brazil and Russia…the other BRICs.
