Occasional Papers


The electronic, peer-reviewed Occasional Papers on Public Policy series is designed to highlight ongoing policy relevant research in Canadian domestic and foreign policy, and at the federal, provincial, and city level.  We invite submissions on issues of public policy that pertain to cross-border relations between 

Canadaand theUnited States, or to policies in one of these countries that have implications for the other.

As with ARCS, the e-journal is multi-disciplinary and invites submission from all fields of policy inquiry. Papers may be of any length and should be submitted electronically to:
