The Provinces and Canadian Foreign Trade Policy

UBC Press

A major contribution to the study of paradiplomacy and to Canadian foreign policy and federalism. This is a very important subject and, until now, there has been no study of all ten provinces. Kukucha’s book demonstrates a complete mastery of the cases and of the secondary literature, and is most impressive for its original research, parts of which are drawn from interviews with key actors.
– André Lecours, co-author of Nationalism and Social Policy: The Politics of Territorial Solidarity

Kukucha has written a fresh analysis of a significant and important development in the evolution of Canadian federalism, public policy, and the effects of globalization: the evolving role of the provinces in Canadian foreign trade policy. His is the first major book on this topic in over fifteen years and breaks new ground in applying international relations literature to domestic institutional politics.
– Doug Brown, co-author of Contested Federalism: Certainty and Ambiguity in the Canadian Federation
