The agenda to support democracy around the world requires efforts to make the entire global system more democratic, not just at the national level. While the Global South remains disempowered, conversations about the rights of the citizens of those countries are necessarily limited.

Ruth welcomes a guest who has extensive experience studying both global governance and democracy in the Caribbean and Africa.  Dr. W. Andy Knight is Professor of International Relations at the University of Alberta, and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

Journalism in Canada has suffered a devastating decline over the last two decades. Dozens of newspapers and outlets have shuttered. Remaining newsrooms are smaller. Nowhere is this erosion more acute than in the coverage of foreign policy and international news. It’s expensive, and Canadians, oceans away from most international upheavals, pay the outside world comparatively little attention.

At Open Canada, we believe this must change. If anything, the pandemic has taught us we can’t afford to ignore the changing world. What’s more, we believe, most Canadians don’t want to. Many of us, after all, come from somewhere else and have connections that reach around the world.

Our mission is to build a conversation that involves everyone — not just politicians, academics and policy makers. We need your help to do so. Your support helps us find stories and pay writers to tell them. It helps us grow that conversation. It helps us encourage more Canadians to play an active role in shaping our country’s place in the world.
