November 4, 2013 – NATO & China Roundtable in Toronto

“Does NATO Belong in Asia? Canada, China and America’s ‘Pivot’ to

the Asia-Pacific”

Monday, November 4, 2013 − Dominion of Canada General Insurance Building – 165 University Avenue, Toronto    


As  global power centres continue their eastward shift, NATO looks increasingly adrift in its transatlantic orientation. The alliance is turning towards the burgeoning  Asia-Pacific region, but the implications of this shift are fraught with uncertainty.  Join the NATO Council of Canada for a discussion with expert James Manicom of  the CIGI, who will be speaking on the topic of  NATO’s engagement with regional players in the Asia-Pacific, and what this means for the organization’s future.


About the Speaker

James Manicom is a CIGI (Centre for International Governance Innovation) research fellow, contributing to the development of the global security program. Previously, he held fellowships at the Ocean Policy Research Foundation in Tokyo and the Balsillie School of International Affairs. James’ current research explores Arctic governance, East Asian security, and China’s role in ocean governance.
