We are pleased to invite you to the first Canada-Scotland Arctic Dialogue that will be held in the Project Room at 50 George Square in Edinburgh, Scotland, from 1 pm to 4 pm on 4 April 2019.
The dialogue will be co-hosted by Polar Research and Policy Initiative; the Centre for Canadian Studies, University of Edinburgh; the Edinburgh Arctic Research Network; the School for the Study of Canada at Trent University; the British Association of Canadian Studies; and the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
The aim of the meeting is, firstly, to revisit the exceptionally-strong Canada-UK bilateral relationship, but this time with an added focus on Scotland’s links with the Canadian North; to identify greater opportunities for trade and cooperation, particularly where the North is concerned; and to explore both how academics can integrate such a focus in the field of Canadian studies and how policymakers can integrate such a focus in their work in strengthening Canada-UK/Scotland relations.
Should you have an interest in Scotland, Canada, the North, Indigenous affairs and/or Canada-UK (or specifically Scottish-Canadian) relations, this will be an important dialogue that you may not wish to miss.
Please do sign up at the earliest as places are limited. We look forward to seeing you on 4 April!
