Borders and Bridges in North America is an edited collection of essays by leading and emerging scholars from Canada and the United States that examines Canada's policy relations within a North American context. Grounded in the idea that Canadian policy is contextual-heavily influenced by both North American and global forces-editors Monica Gattinger and Geoffrey Hale trace policy changes from the signing of CUFTA, through NAFTA and 9/11 to the present, with a principal focus on the last decade.
Looking at policy through a comparative lens, the text considers the contexts and factors that shape policy areas within Canada, the US, and Mexico, offering cross-comparisons and an in-depth look at their complex political, economic, and social relationships. Throughout individual chapters, the volume's contributing authors discuss their specific policy areas within this 'trilateral' or 'dual-bilateral' framework.
Organized into three parts, the first establishes the theoretical framework for comparative analysis; the second narrows the focus to significant sectoral issues; and the third focuses on trade patterns and platforms. Sectoral subsections cover a broad range of policy areas including border management, security, the North, energy and environmental policies, immigration, labour, cultural relations, transportation, and trade.
