Monday, September 18, 2017

Queen's University foreign policy expert Kim Nossal is available to comment following U.S. President Donald Trump’s first address to the United Nations General Assembly, scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

The speech comes amidst a number of foreign policy issues facing the Trump administration, including increasing tensions surrounding North Korea’s nuclear program, Trump’s America First approach to trade relations, confusion around the US position on the Paris climate agreement, and Trump’s own criticisms on the United Nations.

Dr. Nossal is a professor of political studies and fellow of the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen's University. His research focuses on Canadian foreign and defence policy, Canadian-US relations and defence procurement. He is the author of Charlie Foxtrot: Fixing Defence Procurement in Canada, which examined the impact of decades of underinvestment and mismanagement in defence procurement.
