China's place in Canada's vision of a "rules-based order"
The Trudeau government has repeatedly stressed its support for a "rules-based international order". In an ideal world, such an order would be inclusive and founded on agreed-upon principles between states. However, the deepening rivalry between China and many Western countries shows how much the rules have become contested in today's world. It is becoming increasingly difficult for Western countries to build an international order in partnership with China. But can an international order based on competition with China truly be rules-based?

Given this dilemma, how does Canada need to adjust its vision and pursuit of a "rules-based international order"? What tangible changes need to occur in Canadian foreign policy to keep up with the rapid pace of global change? And how can Canada balance between today's security concerns regarding China and the long-term need to build an international order that strengthens global peace and stability?
