What is cultural and commercial diplomacy? What do these terms mean in the age of globalization and soft power? How have Canada and Québec become distinguished players on the stage of international relations thanks to cultural and commercial diplomacy over recent decades? How can these soft power tools be harnessed effectively not just abroad, but also domestically, for Canada and Canadians? These topics and more will be addressed by Dr. Maureen Waters O'Neill, Eakin Visiting Fellow at the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada for the winter term, 2020.
As a specialist in North American Studies, Dr. Maureen Waters O’Neill focuses on Québec and Canada through interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches.
