Canada on the United Nations Security Council

A Small Power on a Large Stage

As the twentieth century ended, Canada was completing its sixth term on the UN Security Council. A decade later, the government's attempt to return to the council was dramatically rejected by its global peers, leaving Canadians – and international observers – shocked and disappointed. Canada on the United Nations Security Council tells the story of that defeat and what it means for future campaigns, describing and analyzing Canada's attempts since 1946, both successful and unsuccessful, to gain a seat as a nonpermanent member. Impeccably researched and clearly written, this is the definitive history of the Canadian experience on the world's most powerful stage.
