              Although Canada is regarded as one of the least corrupt countries, this volume draws on wide ranging evidence and innovative research from scholars around the world to challenge this assumption. Corruption, defined as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain, is often unders...tood as being caused by internally motivated greed leading to prohibited acts in contravention of laws, rules and regulations. It can also be defined as dishonest action that destroys people's trust. These traditional forms of corruption pose problems for Canada in a variety of policy domains, as well as institutional corruption evidenced by deception and financial inconsistency that undermine the effectiveness and transparency of policy objectives. This volume contains chapters that investigate various areas of corruption in Canada, ranging from corruption amongst the First Nations, to the armed forces, to the delivery of foreign assistance. It also offers suggestions to reduce future outbreaks of corruption. Each chapter provides detailed empirical analysis evidenced through real world examples that highlight key lessons amidst the numerous challenges posed by corruption. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal.

              Peacemaking, or the practice of resolving wars and violent conflict through mediation, is one of the most essential ways to create global peace, stability and security. Long practiced by the great powers in their efforts to prevent regional disputes from escalating out of control... and by the UN Secretary General as part of Chapter VI operations of the UN Charter, mediation is only now being appreciated as an essential element in the diplomatic tool kit of middle powers. In this context, middle power mediation is understood as the pursuit of specific activities that are consistent with their interests and values such as advancing human rights, resolving protracted conflict, preventing the renewal of civil war and the protection of civilians during war time. Contributions to this volume consider these activities through detailed empirical analysis that is both qualitative and quantitate in scope and through real world examples of successes and failures. Underlying theoretical assumptions regarding the motivations of middle powers are identified in order to distil key lessons and to illustrate the numerous challenges of undertaking effective mediation. Practical and applied, this publication will be of interest to scholars, academics, policymakers and practitioners. This book was originally published as a special issue of Canadian Foreign Policy Journal.

              After his Liberal Party's surprise victory in the 2015 federal Canadian election, Justin Trudeau declared that Canada was back on the world stage. This comprehensive volume highlights issues in the relationship between articulated visions of Canada as a global actor, nation brand...ing and domestic politics, noting the dangers of the politicization of the branding of Canada. It also provides the political context for thinking about `Brand Canada' in the Trudeau era. The authors explore the Trudeau government's embrace of political branding and how it plays out in key areas central to the brand, including: Canada's relations with Indigenous peoples; social media and digital diplomacy; and the importance of the Arctic region for Canada's brand, even though it is often ignored by politicians and policymakers. The book asks whether the Trudeau government has lived up to its claim that Canada is back, and highlights the challenges that emerge when governments provide optimistic visions for meaningful transformation, but then do not end up leading meaningful change. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of political science, particularly those with a focus on Canada. It was originally published as a special issue of Canadian Foreign Policy Journal.
