Security and Democracy

This IRPP research program explores the complex challenges confronting Canada with regard to the post-9/11 security environment and its impact on domestic and international policies. The research addresses issues that are in many ways new to the country and to the formulation of Canadian national security policy, above all the threat posed by global, transnational terrorism. The program examines the interrelationships between new security demands and democratic norms, focusing in particular on the building blocks of a sound democratic model for national security

Royal oath furore obscures wider need for ceremony

A huge furore has greeted the publication today of Lord Goldsmith’s review of citizenship. This is largely due to the idea (floated as an option rather than a recommendation) that young people should be asked to swear an oath of allegiance to the Queen. Like most people on the liberal-left such a proposal fills me with horror: the idea of repeating those awful occasions at Scouts when you had to salute the flag and affirm your loyalty to the monarch makes me cringe. As a life-long republican, this would mean asking me to say something that I didn’t mean.
