The Public Policy and Governance Review is pleased to announce the release of its Spring 2011 Issue.
Research papers in Vol. 2 No. 2 explore asylum policy in Canada and argue for Canadian cities to have a voice in intergovernmental dialogue. Further contributions include book reviews of Martha C. Nussbaum’s “Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities” and Paul Heinbecker’s “Getting Back in the Game: A Foreign Policy Playbook for Canada” as well as a brief history of the student-professor relationship, from Ancient Rome to the present. Justin Longo, winner of the 2011 Sylvia Ostry Prize in Public Policy, and runners up, respond to the editorial question, “Is sunlight the best disenfectant?” with three distinct takes on the themes of openness and transparency. The issue also includes interviews with the Right Honourable Paul Martin, Former Prime Minister of Canada, and Dr. Anthony Careless, professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto. Finally, Professor Mel Cappe, former Clerk of the Privy Council and professor at the School of Public Policy and Governance, responds to the Lefebvre Austruther Maingy Questionnaire.
