Description

Grant Dawson’s analysis of political, diplomatic, and military decision making avoids a narrow focus on the shocking offences of a few Canadian soldiers, deftly investigating the broader context of the deployment in Somalia. He shows how media pressure, government optimism about the United Nations, and the Canadian traditions of multilateralism and peacekeeping all helped to determine the level, length, and tenor of the country’s operations. His findings will undoubtedly play a seminal role in informing scholarly debate about this important period in Canadian diplomacy and military engagement.

Contributor Notes

Grant Dawson has worked as a committee analyst at the Library of Parliament and as a postdoctoral fellow at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University. He teaches political science at Carleton and history at the University of Ottawa.
