Summary

Upon obtaining power in 2015, the Liberals promised a radical departure from Conservative orientations, especially with regard to social and foreign policy, as well as a firm commitment toward reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Following the party’s reelection (albeit as a minority government) in October 2019, the time has come for a comprehensive review of the Liberals’ first mandate under Trudeau. Études Canadiennes/Canadian Studies therefore solicits papers examining various aspects of these first four years in power, relating to the aforementioned policy areas, or others. Did the Liberals succeed in significantly re-orienting Canadian policy toward their preferred objectives?

Argument

The Journal is pleased to announce a special issue, “Justin Trudeau: Review and Assessment of Four Years in Office,” directed by Guest Editor Frédéric Boily (University of Alberta) in association with Editor-in-Chief Laurence Cros (Université de Paris). Upon obtaining power in 2015, the Liberals promised a radical departure from Conservative orientations, especially with regard to social and foreign policy, as well as a firm commitment toward reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Following the party’s reelection (albeit as a minority government) in October 2019, the time has come for a comprehensive review of the Liberals’ first mandate under Trudeau. Études Canadiennes/Canadian Studies therefore solicits papers examining various aspects of these first four years in power, relating to the aforementioned policy areas, or others. Did the Liberals succeed in significantly re-orienting Canadian policy toward their preferred objectives? The question also applies to several other policy areas, such as gender, official languages, federal-provincial relations, the environment, and energy development. Analyses of the latest electoral campaign will also be considered, as well as comparative approaches to understanding the Trudeau government. The foregoing list is not meant to be exhaustive; other issues may be of interest such as the orientation of cultural life (literature, theatre, cinema, etc.) during this period.
