In the current age of globalization, collaboration between nations is paramount. In September 2003, a group of academics, government officials, and business leaders gathered at the University of Calgary under the auspices of its Latin American Research Centre (LARC) to discuss issues related to international trade negotiations in agriculture. This innovative undertaking, which was a collaborative effort of York University, the University of Western Ontario, L'Université du Québec à Montréal, and the University of Calgary, had one main objective: to identify trade issues common to Canada and Brazil and to formulate possible plans for co-operation and coalition-building. Trade Negotiations in Agriculture: A Future Common Agenda for Brazil and Canada? is one result of this highly successful conference. This collection highlights some of the outstanding contributions from conference participants and provides useful background information for those who want to learn more about these important international economic issues.
