Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada

@AsiaPacificFdn

From the Trans-Pacific Partnership to the panda pact, Canada spent much of 2012 building better ties with Asia. If you aren’t already, it’s a good time to start following Canada’s leading think tank on the region.

Canada 2020

@Canada2020

Canada 2020 is an Ottawa-based public policy think tank on Canada’s future. #Can2020 is their hashtag, and live-tweeting outside and in-house events is their specialty.

Centre for International Governance Innovation

@CIGIonline

CIGI is a Waterloo-based think tank on global governance. The centre’s feed lets you follow their (still mostly Twitter-less) international affairs experts all in one place. They’ll take your tweeted questions, too, during #cigilive events.

Journalists for Human Rights

@jhrnews

Journalists for Human Rights is a Toronto-based NGO that supports local accountability journalism in Africa – the kind that shuts down child brothels and keeps elections free and fair. On Twitter, JHR balances fundraising with a steady stream of #rightsmedia stories from around the world.


#HumanRightsDay is Dec 10. Did you know that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in history? #HRD2012

Munk School of Global Affairs

@munkschool

Despite a year-long hiatus, we are delighted that the Munk School rejoined the Twittersphere this past fall with a bang, curating the best from its affiliated institutes and people.

Before you click away, we’d like to ask you for a favour … 

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.
