On June 1, authors of chapters in the new book, Capitalism and Dispossession: Corporate Canada at Home and Abroad, discussed Canadian mining in Burkina Faso and Indonesia as well as Canadian banking in the Western Hemisphere and how corporate Canada influences the academic discussion of Canadian foreign policy.
