Terror and North America: The Causes and Directions of Cross-Border Extremist Activity

September 19, 2012 // 2:00pm4:00pm
Canada Institute
Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, many American policymakers have grown increasingly concerned about terrorists or terrorist materials being smuggled into the United States from Canada. The myth that the 9/11 hijackers arrived in the United States through Canada contributed to the passage of laws that have increased the “thickness” of the border and hindered trade in the name of collective security. Do these rules safeguard against the true vectors of North American extremism? The Canada Institute’s “Terror and North America: The Causes and Directions of Cross-Border Extremist Activity” will examine how and why extremists travel between Canada and the United States, what effect these crossings have on our national security, and what possible policy solutions exist to better police the border.

The Impact of Local Law Enforcement at the Canada-U.S. Border

June 14, 2012 // 9:00am11:00am
Canada Institute
Stretching 5,525 miles, the Canada-United States border is the longest international boundary in the world. Every day, border officers from both nations inspect about a billion dollars in trade and hundreds of thousands of people in order to interdict harmful goods and persons at our shared crossing. However, the agencies in charge of the border and customs only have primary jurisdiction along the band that makes up the international boundary. Outside of that area, border security is left to other federal, state, and provincial police forces.

Regional Perspectives on the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit

March 21, 2012 // 3:00pm5:30pm
Asia Program
On March 26-27, Seoul will host the second Nuclear Security Summit, an initiative established by the Obama administration in Washington in 2010. Fifty world leaders, as well as scores of NGOs and industry and business representatives on the periphery of the central meeting, will discuss the summit’s main aim: to prevent loose nuclear materials from falling into the hands of terrorists. Naturally, different regional actors will have different agendas and priorities for the summit, and it is therefore important to consider the issues and concerns for Northeast Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern, and former Soviet states and stakeholders.
