Liberals at the border we stand on guard for whom? by Lloyd Axworthy ( )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this wide-ranging lecture, Axworthy reflects on liberal values, Canadian politics, and the rise of U.S.-Canadian border issues since the terrorist attack on the United States in September 2001. He addresses many troubling issues, including the conflict in Afghanistan where Canadian soldiers potentially contravened Canada's international treaties handing over prisoners to the United States. He also discusses Canadian territorial sovereignty in the context of U.S. 'homeland security' as well as international inaction on conflicts in Africa that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people."--BOOK JACKET
Navigating a new world : Canada's global future by Lloyd Axworthy ( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Navigating a New World Lloyd Axworthy charts how we can become active citizens in the demanding world of the twenty-first century, to make it safer, more sustainable and more humane. Throughout he emphasizes the human story. As we meet refugees from civil war and drought, child soldiers and landmine victims, the moral imperative is clear: this is a deeply compassionate appeal to confront poverty, war and environmental disaster. Before Lloyd Axworthy entered global politics, "human security" -- a philosophy calling for global responsibility to the interests of individuals rather than to the interests of the nation state or multi-national corporations -- was a controversial and unfamiliar idea. When put into action, human security led to an international ban on landmines, initiatives to curtail the use of child soldiers, and the formation of the International Criminal Court. Today, with conflict raging across the planet -- and building -- the need for a humane, secure international governance is more vital than ever. So how can Canada reject a world model dominated by U.S. policy, military force and naked self-interest' How can we rethink a global world from the perspective of people -- our security, our needs, our promise, our dreams' Lloyd Axworthy delivers recommendations that are both practical and radical, ranging from staunch Canadian independence from the U.S. to environmental as well as political security; from rules to govern intervention when nations oppress their own citizens, to codes of conduct on arms control and war crimes. Arresting and provocative, Navigating a New World lays out just why Canada has the skills to lead the world into a twenty-first century less nightmarish than the last, and help make the world safer and more just for us all. This is a call for action from one of Canada's most eloquent statesmen and thinkers, and is essential reading for all Canadians. Where is the line we draw in setting out the boundaries for being responsible for others' Is it simply family and close friends' Do we stop at the frontiers of our own country' Does our conscience, our sense of right or wrong, take us as far as the crowded camps of northern Uganda, surrounded by land mines, attacked repeatedly by an army made largely of child soldiers' I believe we in Canada have a special vocation to help in the building of a more secure order. We need not be confined to our self-interest. -- from Navigating a New World From the Hardcover edition
