Russian National Interests and the Arctic: Foreign Policy Implications for Canada

Joël Plouffe, Stéphane Roussel et al., Canadian Foreign Policy in a Unipolar World, Chapitre 4

Canadian foreign policy in an unipolar world

Canadian Foreign Policy in a Unipolar World examines the theoretical and practical realities of a unipolar world – a system in which a single power is disproportionally dominant and influential – and asks how it affects Canadian foreign policy. Taking this model of unipolarity as their starting point, editors Michael Hawes and Christopher Kirkey, along with 17 other contributors and esteemed scholars, cover such fascinating topics as Homeland Security, Canadian development policies, and geo-engineering.

Part II explores regional policies and practices, and in Chapter 4 Andrea Charron, Joël Plouffe and Stéphane Roussel present an astute and well-documented argument that the Arctic, and, by extension, Canadian foreign policy in that region, demands that Russia be effectively recognized as the most significant regional actor, in spite of the broader unipolar reality.
