Co-editor of the policy volume Moving Forward: Issues in Canada China Relations

On the occasion of 45 years of Canada-China relations, fifteen academics from eight Canadian universities join together to present clear, insightful and analytical policy recommendations on how to move forward Canada’s relations with China.

The book, aptly titled Moving Forward: Issues in Canada-China Relations and edited by Asif B. Farooq and Scott McKnight, aims to spark a frank and intellectual conversation on Canada-China relations for Canadians’ interest with a ‘whole of a Canada’ approach dealing issues such as health, investment, trade, security and people-to-people engagements.
