Breaking the Ice Book Launch with Elizabeth Riddell-Dixon

  • George Ignatieff Theatre 15 Devonshire Place Toronto, ON, M5S 2C8 Canada

Join us on April 18th to celebrate the book launch of Elizabeth Riddell-Dixon’s ‘Breaking the Ice: Canada, Sovereignty, and the Arctic Extended Continental Shelf’ (Dundurn Press). There will be a presentation by the author and the opportunity to purchase copies of the book and have them signed by the author.

In Breaking the Ice: Canada, Sovereignty and the Arctic Extended Continental Shelf, Arctic policy expert Elizabeth Riddell-Dixon examines the political, legal, and scientific aspects of Canada’s efforts to delineate its Arctic extended continental shelf. The quality and quantity of the data collected and analyzed by the scientists and legal experts preparing Canada’s Arctic Submission for the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, and the extensive collaboration with Canada’s Arctic neighbours is a good news story in Canadian foreign policy. As Arctic sovereignty continues to be a key concern for Canada and as the international legal regime is being observed by all five Arctic coastal states, it is crucial to continue to advance our understanding of the complex issues around this expanding area of national interest.

Stick around after the book launch for a discussion on Canadian foreign policy with Roland Paris and Kim Nossal in the George Ignatieff Theatre. For full details click HERE.
