This paper explores the changes and continuities in Canadian foreign policy between 1990 and 2003 by focusing on four significant international event. The writer discusses the events of the first Gulf War of 1990-91; the Kosovo Crisis of the late 1990s; the war in Afghanistan and the war in Iraq. This paper argues that Canadian levels of participation in each affair were determined more by a sense of "Canadian" values - and a realization of the limits of Canadian power - than by any other group of factors.

From the Paper:

"Canadian foreign policy - at least since the dawn of the 1990s - may best be described as confused. Despite our lofty rhetoric about making a difference in the affairs of states, Canada's long-time cannibalization of its armed forces has too often reduced it to a bit player in peace-keeping operations - and in world affairs more generally. This paper will explore Canadian foreign policy decisions vis-a-vis four recent international events - the Gulf War of 1990-91, the 1999 Kosovo War, the 2001 War in Afghanistan, and the controversial decision in 2003 to stay away from any military entanglements in Iraq."
