 Prerequisites (recommended)

Building on China: Primer on a Global Power, this course will further examine how to advance Canadian interests on a broad range of issues, from trade to development, security, maritime law and dispute settlement, in light of China’s changing political, economic and social contexts. It will include a discussion of how to manage bilateral relations, from developing strategies that maximize the benefits of diplomatic visits, missions and mechanisms to managing political, social and public risks and challenges. The course will also explore China’s shifting business environment and discuss ways in which Canadian business can access China’s market. China’s place in the international security context, as well as the domestic challenges faced by the Chinese authorities (ranging from the environment, inequality, to minority relations), will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • provide an advanced overview of the new realities in China and its global political, military, economic, multilateral, cultural and demographic power
  • skillfully interpret Chinese motives and actions abroad and analyze their implications using concrete case studies and develop mitigation plans to advance Canadian political and commercial interests
  • demonstrate an in-depth understanding of China’s importance to Canada and Canada’s priorities with the Government of Canada’s Indo-Pacific Strategy
  • illustrate with concrete examples how China applies its influence in foreign capitals in foreign and trade relations and its impact on Canadian interests in those countries

Notes: This course is available to other government department employees on a cost-recovery basis.
