Chapter 24 Notes: Concert Diplomacy in the Group of 8
PD school: suggests that the summits provided a sensation of power without its reality while
Canadian attempts to inf luence even the agenda resulted in little success.
A second PD school suggests that G8 constrains Canada, it diverts Canadas interests and
attention away from UN. America uses the G8 to have Canada adopt policies of free market
fundamentalism and corporate globalism.
LI school: emphasizes ineffectiveness of Canadian activity in the G8. Canada was able to get
issues on table but failed to inf luence summit outcomes or shape world order as a whole
CNR school: presents it as an institution for increasing Canadian inf luence in the world
Canadas Diplomacy of Concert:

enables principal power Canada to Canadianize the global order.
since 1975, the G8 has moved Canada from the old, UN-centered diplomacy of constraint to the
new g8 focused diplomacy of concert.
Causes of Canadas Diplomacy of Concert:
our successful diplomacy of concert arises because G8 is emerging as an effective centre of
global governance, replacing old order provided by UN thus changing the way its members and
outsiders behave
Canadas relatively invulnerable position in G8 reinforces our major power presence, allowing
us to advance national interests and values. Canada acts increasingly as a leader and moves
between defensive and offensive forms of leadership
