Speaker information

Professor Earl Fry, Professor of Political Science, Brigham Young University, Professor of Political Science and Endowed Professor of Canadian Studies at Brigham Young University. He previously served as Special Assistant in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and has been a Fulbright Professor at the University of Toronto, University of Helsinki, and the Sorbonne. He has written extensively on Canada-U.S. relations and NAFTA. His most recent article is entitled “The Role of U.S. State Governments in International Relations, 1980–2015” and is published in International Negotiation, Volume 22, Number 2 (2017). His article on Quebec’s economic and political linkages with the United States since 1994 will appear in the autumn 2017 issue of the London Journal of Canadian Studies, published by UCL Press.

The Trump administration is off to a chaotic start and this is being reflected in overall U.S. foreign policy. This lecture will highlight the development of U.S.-Canada relations since Trump’s inauguration and examine closely what may transpire in terms of the bilateral political and economic relationship and especially the future prospects of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) involving the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Potentially, the next few years could become the most troubling period in Canada-U.S. relations, and North American relations in general, since the end of World War II.
