Centre for International and Defence Policy

CIDP

Kingston, Canada

The Centre for International and Defence Policy, established in 1975 as the Queen's Centre for International Relations under the directorship of Nils Ørvik, has a mandate to conduct research in matters of national and international security and other aspects of international relations. It supports teaching in the field of security and defence and, through its publications and activities of its members, contributes to public debate on Canadian foreign and defence policy, and on issues of international peace and security. In 2011, the Centre's name was changed to reflect more clearly the range of its interests as a research unit in the School of Policy Studies at Queen's University.The CIDP is one of the most active research centres in Canada on foreign and defence policy issues. The core mission of the Centre is to inform public debates related to international engagement, security cooperation and the military. CIDP leverages its location in Kingston to build strategic partnerships with the armed forces.
