Room: 202

It is time to reflect not only on the strengths of the International rules based order but also on its inherent weaknesses. authoritarian de facto dictatorships rarely admit to the weaknesses in their systems or societies. It is important and strategically essential that democracies do not make the same mistake.

Hugh Segal is the Donald Matthews Fellow in Global Public Policy in the School of Policy Studies and recently stepped down as the Head of Massey College at the University of Toronto. Mr. Segal is a former Chair of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, and the Special Senate Committee on anti-terrorism. He has also served as Chief of Staff to Prime Minister Mulroney, Associate Cabinet Secretary for federal provincial relations in Ontario under Premier William Davis, and as President of the Institute for Research on Public Policy in Montreal.

He is a Senior Strategic Advisor at the Aird & Berlis LLP law firm, and a Distinguished Fellow at both the Munk School of Global Affairs, and the School of Policy Studies at Queen's University. He graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in history in 1972. His public policy focus for many years has been reforming income security in Canada with a Basic Income guarantee.
