The Case for Rethinking Security and State Sovereignty in the New Century

Appointed on January 1 as Director of UBC's Liu Centre, Professor Axworthy was most recently Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs. He was first elected to Parliament in 1979 and held several other major cabinet portfolios during his tenure in office. He has outlined an ambitious program of research at UBC, including disarmament, threats of violence to societies, humanitarian intervention in conflict situations, protection of children, and broader issues of nuclear security in North America and Asia. Before entering politics, Professor Axworthy taught at Middlebury College in Vermont, then returned to Canada as professor of political science at the University of Winnipeg where he was later appointed Director of the Institute of Urban Studies.
