Description

Les politiques de commerce et d’investissement font face à un environnement géopolitique en évolution. Ils font face également à des défis résultant des interactions et des limites propres aux accords sur le commerce et l’investissement avec d’autres pays.
Ces défis liés au passage des frontières internationales adoptent diverses formes et relèvent de secteurs variés comprenant le commerce de l’énergie, la sécurité alimentaire et des enjeux liés à l’environnement et à la santé publique. De façon similaire, les dynamiques frontalières se distinguent considérablement en matière de flux transfrontaliers de tourisme, de main-d’oeuvre qualifiée et de migration irrégulière.
Cet ouvrage révèle et analyse les facteurs qui gouvernent l’activité économique et l’interaction humaine depuis la frontière « poreuse » du Canada. Les collaborateurs de cet ouvrage collectif examinent les principaux aspects politiques, techniques et administratifs, internes au Canada, qui déterminent les conditions et les contraintes d’une politique internationale efficace et de la coopération en matière de réglementation.
Publié en Anglais.

Excerpt: Canada's Fluid Borders: Trade, Investment, Travel, Migration (edited by Geoffrey Hale & Greg Anderson; contributions by Patricia Dewey-Lambert, Monica Gattinger, Jill Hobbs, William Kerr, Meredith Lilly & Andrew Moroz)

''Popular understanding may conceive of borders as formal boundaries separating the territories of different countries – or perhaps the administrative locations ("ports of entry") at which individuals or goods pass from the territory of one country to another. However, the continuing growth and diversification of trade, investment, travel, and various forms of migration increase the importance and interaction of bordering processes.''
