This short book is derived from a two-day conference hosted by the Centre for Foreign Policy Studies. The conference examined what will happen to expeditionary operations after the Canadian Forces end their combat role in Afghanistan. This book highlights some key issues and perspectives on this topic. It includes discussions of public opinion in Canada on defence policy and operations abroad, how the Afghanistan operation was framed by government and how effective it was, what effects if any Canada's actions in Afghanistan had on Canadian relations with the United States, non-traditional security threats and their relation to the Canadian Forces, and future roles and capabilities of the Canadian Navy. It is timely – and indeed necessary – to speculate on how the mission in Afghanistan will affect the Canadian Forces in the future.
