Guest Lecture: Mr. Terry Collins-Williams


Oct 29/13

Date: Oct 29/13
Time: 8:30 - 9:50
Location: Arts 1C16
Cost: n/a

Mr. Terry Collins-Williams will give a guest lecture in Dr. Goff’s third-year class (PO329 – The Politics of Trade). Mr. Collins-Williams brings a very important practitioner’s perspective to the class. His vast experience in the Canadian Departments of Finance and Foreign Affairs and International Trade, especially on the front lines as a negotiator, make him uniquely qualified to provide insight into negotiating strategies and outcomes. This is an important complement to the theoretical and empirical content that forms the basis of the course.   

Mr. Collins-Williams was a key contributor to the work of the Centre for Trade Policy and Law (CTPL) in Ottawa.  CTPL is a leader in Canada in skills training for students in political science and law. They are particularly well-known for the simulations that they conduct on a range of international negotiations – trade negotiations; climate change treaty negotiations; arctic boundary disputes; etc. – as well as their short courses on policy analysis.

Following his guest lecture, Mr. Collins-Williams will be available for informal chats with undergraduate students in the political science and North American Studies departments. This will give them an opportunity to ask him about job strategies with the Government of Canada, among other things.
