Twelve students enrolled in uOttawa’s Public and International Affairs course on democracy in the world presented policy briefings at Global Affairs Canada (GAC) on April 2nd, 2019. In collaboration with GAC’s Democracy, Inclusion and Religious Freedom Division and under the supervision of Professor Christina Clark-Kazak, students delivered both a written note, as well as an oral presentation, on topics including populism, democratization of trade, climate change, censorship, youth participation, Brexit and les gilets jaunes. As Professor Giles Breton, Director of the uOttawa’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) remarked, “This kind of collaboration is enriching for both parties.” The course’s experiential learning approach reflects the GSPIA’s objective of training bilingual researchers who are able to communicate findings in both academic and practical contexts.
