These four events will be test runs of the deliberations that we are organizing for a microcosm of all Canadian citizens in February 2021. Extensive expert consultations throughout Fall 2020 produced policy proposals on four fundamental objectives in Canada’s foreign policy: Health, Security, Prosperity and Dignity. Participants will receive a discussion guide for their preferred topic and will be invited to deliberate with other citizens in an online session run by the Stanford University Center for Deliberative Democracy.
