This roundtable is organized to discuss current dilemmas of governance as they relate to the globalization of domestic issues. Stephen Clarkson, who died in 2016, has been central to understanding late 20th and early 21st century governance changes in Canada. His research and activism centred on how Canada and its trading partners are influenced by global governance structures and the intent of the workshop is to focus on how these structures are likely to affect crucial decision-making in the future. This will be done by examining the kinds of problems that have been created by trade agreements in particular. The problems of uneven impacts abound, but so too are the ways that states interpret their abilities to deal with the 21st century dilemmas, such as increased migration, climate change, continentalism, and the understanding of the nature of states’ power. Woven throughout will be ideas about how Canadian political economy will confront these problems of governance. The participants are all deeply connected to Stephen Clarkson’s work, either as former students, collaborators in writing, or as colleagues working on similar issues.
