The Foreign Policy Research Division of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) Canada is pleased to announce the 2015-2016 Cadieux-Léger Fellowship.
The Cadieux-Léger Fellowship, now in its 23rd year, provides direct experience in a policy research environment focused on the diverse challenges facing Canadian foreign policy. The Cadieux-Léger Fellow is integrated in the Foreign Policy Research Division at DFATD as a full-fledged analyst.
The Fellow's work includes some research related to priority topics, writing short papers, contributing to the operational policy requirements, including by networking with internal and external experts and contributing to policy working groups.
While at DFATD, the Fellow is expected to advance Canadian foreign policy and the Foreign Policy Research Division's research agenda, which includes themes such as:
- Evolving global governance: including the management of complex crises, the role of non-state actors, urbanization and the role of cities, and the future of diplomacy;
- Global threats, including terrorism;
- Strategic partnerships: including with Asia, the United States and Mexico;
- Technology and foreign policy: including the Internet Economy, implications of emerging technologies, and innovation diplomacy.
