Senior fellow, Brookings Institution 

I’m currently reading, and would recommend to anyone, both: “House on Fire: The Fight to Eradicate Smallpox” by legendary global health leader William Foege and “The Unfinished Global Revolution: The Pursuit of a New International Politics” by international policy maestro and former UN Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch Brown.

Open Canada is published by the Canadian International Council, but that’s only the beginning of what the CIC does.

By becoming a member, you’ll be joining a community of Canadians who seek to shape Canada’s role in the world, and you’ll help Open Canada continue to publish thoughtful and provocative reporting and analysis.
