Announcing the new Trudeau Foundation Papers
The Trudeau Foundation Papers (vol. 4, no.1) includes the complete text of the five Trudeau Lectures delivered by Trudeau fellows in 2011-2012. The Trudeau Lectures are an annual series of public talks given by Trudeau fellows and organized in collaboration with Canadian universities. In their lectures, the fellows discuss their ideas, their research, and their role as public intellectuals. Texts from Trudeau Fellows Janine Brodie, Sujit Choudhry, Alain-G. Gagnon, Jocelyn Létourneau, and Steven Loft are part of this edition.
Exceptionally, a second issue of the Papers will be released later this year, with original contributions from the members of the Trudeau community on each of the four key themes of the Foundation.
She endeavours to identify the tools that will effectively reduce poverty and social inequalities at both local and national levels.

He addresses issues of cultural identity, human rights, and communication, and provides new perspectives on Indigenous art and cultural discourse.
