ABSTRACT
In April 2009, the Members of NATO launched a process to define a "new" strategic concept. Since 1949, Canadian officials have been able to take part in discussions on each of these course changes and addition of tasks. In many cases, Canada has been able to get out of new commitments. In others, they have instead had to bow to several major allies' will. The interest raised by these discussions lies not only in the short-term issues they evoke, but differences concerning the nature of the Alliance that they reveal. This article offers an overview of the internationalist foundations of Canadian foreign policy and highlights the gradual abandonment of this approach in favor of a more continental repositioning, even though successive strategic concepts since 1949 tend toward extension of the geographical area of intervention, and the expansion and diversification of partners and missions.
