Tribute to Stephen Clarkson: Multiple Governance Dilemmas in the « New » North America after NAFTA and CETA

CALL FOR PAPERS

1. Perspectives

Stephen Clarkson has spent much of his research career documenting exceptionally the evolution of North America as a territory, in all its competing complexities at the local, regional, national and global levels. His many books – from Reagan Challenge to Big Blue Machine, from Uncle Sam and Us to Dependent America? – have provided valuable insights into the North American dynamics that have been in place for a quarter of a century and allow Canadian and international audiences to re-examine the exercise of American power in North America from a number of institutional perspectives on the functioning of transnational markets. His research has been particularly focused on how political parties and powerful presidents and prime ministers have established and shaped public policy agendas, how they have addressed the major challenges they have faced, and how they have been used made the bureaucratic apparatus to lick their enemies and reward their friends. Often cited as its most important and lasting publication, Trudeau’s two-volume biography co-written with his partner Christina McCall Newman is not enough to honor his extraordinary contribution as a political economist and professional political scientist. Clarkson has taken on many other roles in his life, including as a public-minded intellectual researching the political behavior and self-interest of elites. This led him to take a deep look at neoliberal globalization as a tenacious, contradictory and polarizing force on people, markets, communities and governments.

2. Thematic Issue

This thematic issue of the journal, specifically dedicated to Stephen Clarkson’s prolific contribution to the North American study, will focus on how trade governance and domestic policies have influenced public policy in the « new » North America, which is gradually taking shape over the last 20 years. The contributions can be predominantly empirical (results and discussion) or predominantly theoretical (more conceptual, based on thematic concepts and approaches).

Un institut montréalais tourné vers le monde, depuis 20 ans!

— Bernard Derome, Président

Créé en 2002, l’Institut d’études internationales de Montréal (IEIM) est un pôle d’excellence bien ancré dans la communauté montréalaise. Les activités de l’IEIM et de ses constituantes mobilisent tant le milieu académique, les représentants gouvernementaux, le corps diplomatique que les citoyens intéressés par les enjeux internationaux. Par son réseau de partenaires privés, publics et institutionnels, l’Institut participe ainsi au développement de la « diplomatie du savoir » et contribue au choix de politiques publiques aux plans municipal, national et international.

Ma collaboration avec l’IEIM s’inscrit directement dans le souci que j’ai toujours eu de livrer au public une information pertinente et de haute qualité. Elle s’inscrit également au regard de la richesse des travaux de ses membres et de son réel engagement à diffuser, auprès de la population, des connaissances susceptibles de l’aider à mieux comprendre les grands enjeux internationaux d’aujourd’hui. Par mon engagement direct dans ses activités publiques depuis 2010, j’espère contribuer à son essor, et je suis fier de m’associer à une équipe aussi dynamique et impliquée que celle de l’Institut.

Bernard Derome

À l’occasion de la rentrée universitaire 2023-2024, le président de l’Institut d’études internationales de Montréal (IEIM) s’est prononcé sur la situation géopolitique mondiale.

« L’ordre mondial, tel que l’on l’a connu depuis la fin de la guerre froide, est complètement bousculé avec des rivalités exacerbées entre les grandes puissances et des impérialismes démesurés. »

– Bernard Derome
