Associate Faculty Dr. Jeff Kucharski has published an article in the Macdonald-Laurier Insitute's December 2019 edition of Inside Policy magazine. The article links current tensions in the Middle East with Canada’s future economic stake in the Indo-Pacific and argues that Canada should use its energy endowments strategically to leverage trade agreements and to make broader gains. The Macdonald–Laurier Institute (MLI) is an independent and non-partisan think tank located in Ottawa. Contributors and staff have appeared in national and regional news media comment on a variety of national issues. The Institute has also been highlighted in Foreign Policy magazine, the Wall Street Journal and The Economist.
