Over two decades on from the September 11th terrorist attacks, The Legacy of 9/11 explores the political, economic, security and defence, and trade and border implications of the event for the United States and its North American allies. From a reconsideration of internationalism, a rise in populism, and a shift in migration patterns to the interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq, The Legacy of 9/11 uncovers how successive North American governments reacted in surprising ways to the world-altering attack.
Join us on September 8th for a virtual discussion with four of the book's authors on the enduring impact of 9/11 on US policy towards and relations with Canada and Mexico, moderated by Canada Institute Director Christopher Sands.
Learn more about The Legacy of 9/11, published by McGill-Queen's University Press.
