Holiday Greetings

holidays-slider-1-2

Warmest holiday greetings!

The Rideau Institute offices will close for the holidays at noon on Friday 23 December, re-opening on Tuesday 3 January 2017. However, our fabulous office manager, Sarah Bowles, will check in occasionally to make sure urgent matters do not go unattended.

There will be no new blogs during the holiday period but we will continue to post on Facebook and Twitter, albeit at a reduced pace.  (Zzzzzz)

2017 promises to be an incredibly eventful year (and frankly a scary one too, given the election results south of the border). Hugely important reviews – of Defence Policy, National Security, International Development and Election Reform – were undertaken in 2016 and now the government must provide its policy responses to each one.   We will be there when they do, providing insightful analysis and progressive options.

It is a tremendous privilege to be able to work with our fantastic Rideau Institute team on issues ranging from the arms trade and nuclear disarmament to conflict resolution and strengthening international law.

Our aim is always to provide both solid information and practical options for building sustainable global peace.”

All the best for 2017.

Onward!
