- Developing a Canadian Indo-Pacific geopolitical orientation
There is growing consensus that Canada needs to “do more” in the Indo-Pacific region as it becomes the centre of gravity in a changing international landscape—a landscape challenging several traditional assumptions about the nature and configuration of global power which Canadian foreign policy has rested upon for decades, specifically due to the emergence of Sino-American rivalry. It is clear Canada needs a regional approach which is rooted in and better informed by geopolitical considerations, but there remains an absence of analytical frameworks to compare and evaluate alternative approaches. In addressing this void, this paper sketches out and compares four possible orientations Canada could pursue towards the Indo-Pacific region: Minimal Engagement, US-Aligned Confrontation, Regional Multilateralism, and Selective Minilateralism. Remaining agnostic about which one(s) Canada should choose, the paper is designed to highlight the stark trade-offs Canada must increasingly confront as it navigates this uncertain environment.
- Middle power South Korea’s disaster response contributions: A case of good international citizenship?
Middle powers tend to display their expertise in areas where they possess a significant advantage, and this results in the creation of new international norms, especially on non-security issues. Disaster response is one area of international relations where middle powers project their images as good international citizens. This article discusses how middle power South Korea has displayed good international citizenship through its various contributions to global disaster response, such as participation in search and rescue operations, management and coordination of relief operations, and funding for humanitarian emergencies. South Korea’s involvement in disaster response is a middle power behaviour that demonstrates good international citizenship by allocating resources for global public goods. South Korea has utilized disaster response as part of its public diplomacy to promote its identity as a middle power and in seeking recognition as a reliable contributor to international development and stability.

This paper analyzes the conflictual relation that the concepts of “Universalism” and “Particularism” share and how the debate informs our understanding of human rights. To study the concept further, the paper takes the case of the current COVID-19 pandemic to explore the tensions and possible assimilations between universalistic and particularistic frameworks using empirical evidence to explore the intersectional impact on human rights in current times.
