Center for North American Studies
Hosts Senior Fellows from Canada
AU’s Center for North American Studies (CNAS) is delighted to host three prominent Canadians this year.
Right Honorable Joseph Clark, former prime minister and foreign minister of Canada, is a CNAS senior fellow and the first distinguished statesman in residence in the School of International Service. Clark gave the keynote address for the Six University Conference held at AU in September. Speaking to conference guests and AU students, he noted that since 9/11 “the international community is more inter and less national than ever before.” Clark is teaching The Foreign Policy of Middle Powers: The Case of Canada this spring.
Maureen McTeer is an author and law professor from the University of Ottawa who specializes in science, medical law, and public policy. She is a CNAS senior fellow and distinguished scholar in residence in the Washington College of Law (WCL) and the School of Public Affairs (SPA). This spring she is teaching The Politics of Reproductive Technologies and Genetics at WCL and The Politics of Equal Rights for Women: Comparing the U.S. and Canada in SPA’s Women and Politics Institute.
Professor Michael Hart from Carleton University in Ottawa is the third CNAS senior fellow. A former official at Canada’s Foreign Affairs and International Trade Ministry, he taught The Politics and Institutions of International Trade during the fall 2004 semester. This spring Hart is writing a new book on managing relations between Canada and the U.S., and he and Dr. Robert
Pastor, director of CNAS, are organizing a project on the need for regulatory convergence during NAFTA’s second decade.
With a grant from the North American Development Bank, CNAS is researching ways to close the development gap between Mexico and its two northern neighbors with the help of three other senior fellows—Drs. Sherman Robinson, Samuel Morley, and Carolina Diaz-Bonilla—of the International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington, D.C.
