of sexual violence enhance support and advocacy for survivors of sexual violence ensure a fair and balanced process for responding to incidents concerns and complaints strengthen the culture of inclusion and safety at Johns Hopkins including but not limited to the impact of violence gender roles drugs and alcohol and social norms I am pleased that this important effort is now moving forward

university culture that supports victims and processes that are fair to all This committee is a key step forward in our sexual violence prevention efforts but it is not the only significant progress we have made in the last few months Today the university has launched a new resource a website 11 we expect will become a hub for information and assistance related to sexual violence prevention and response The site a joint effort of Student Affairs and the Office of Institutional Equity was developed in collaboration with student leaders and others around the university Many individuals have been generous with their time and feedback on this effort and I am grateful to all who have contributed The new website is intended to serve all students faculty and staff It features policies procedures frequently asked questions training resources and perhaps most important emergency contact information These resources are now easier to find and use than ever before Prominently displayed on the site are the number for the 24 7 Sexual Assault Helpline 410 516 7333 information on how to connect with a counselor 12 and resources for reporting an assault 13 I urge you to review the

centers are a compilation of reports received directly into the various security department and center directors offices the various offices of student services other named campus authorities and respective police departments of jurisdiction Note The change in reporting criteria in 1999 significantly expanded the geographic area from which crime figures are derived As a result in some instances reflected increases relate more to a larger reporting area as opposed to an increase in the level of criminal activity on a particular campus Click here 25 to view the Clery Act Report Urban

    of other countries and disseminate that research to a broad audience concerned with foreign relations To offer mid career educational opportunities for those already working in international affairs These goals are increasingly relevant in regard to the study of Canada as more U S leaders in the public and private sectors interact with Canadian counterparts on shared challenges and as Canada is seen by more world leaders as a model or as a potential ally in addressing urgent global and regional concerns Canada has been the United States largest trading partner for more than a century and Canada is the top foreign supplier of U S energy oil natural gas electricity and uranium The two countries negotiated a series of bilateral trade agreements before working together with Mexico on the North American Free Trade Agreement and the ongoing Trans Pacific Partnership talks Canadians are also major investors in the United States and since 2005 the two countries have entered into regulatory cooperation talks aimed at governing cross border integrated supply chains covering everything from agriculture to nanotechnology Canada is a strategic ally with close military ties to the United States reinforced through NORAD NATO and a history of battlefield cooperation from Europe to Afghanistan Since September 2001 Canada has been the United States closest partner in confronting terrorism in North America along the 5525 mile shared border and beyond the two countries operate an array of joint cargo inspection protocols trusted traveler and shipper programs standing law enforcement task forces coordinating federal and local efforts in the land and maritime domains including major cities cybersecurity measures and broad structured intelligence sharing Today nearly every U S federal department and agency has a direct relationship with its Canadian counterpart The U S Congress debates Canadian interests routinely and is a major focus for Canadian diplomacy Members of the U S and Canadian supreme courts have even developed regular exchanges and meetings to discuss the intersection of the two legal systems The National Governors Association and regional governors associations in New England the Great Lakes and the Pacific Northwest meet annually and sometimes more often with Canadian provincial premiers and the Council of State legislatures now includes Canadian provincial legislators in meetings and activities Beyond North America Canada contributes to international cooperation security and development with an increasingly global reach A leading voice in global economic diplomacy Canada is member of the Group of Seven leading industrial economies the G 20 the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and a contributing member of the World Bank the International Monetary Fund and the Inter American Development Bank Canada is also a founding member of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization Canadian regional diplomacy has resulted in a strong role for Canada in the Arctic Council the Organization of American States the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum the Commonwealth and the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie The archetypical middle power Canadian diplomacy has worked to establish consensus with other governments playing an outsized role in world affairs despite having only 34 million people The close ties between the United States and Canada are the product of geographic proximity cultural similarity and practical necessities Yet few of the growing number of U S policymakers and public service professionals have an adequate knowledge of Canadian affairs the Center for Canadian Studies at SAIS is dedicated to redressing this knowledge gap by supporting events that prompt dialogue research that produces insight and scholars who can be leaders link The Center for Canadian Studies has a number of ongoing research projects For more information on sepcific projects see the items below Members of the SAIS community interested in opportunties to get involved should contact Christopher Sands This paper commissioned by the Canadian Global Affairs Institute in Calgary formerly the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute looks at the question of Canadian investment in military capabilities in the wake of the ten year long NATO led mission in Afghanistan It considers the role of U S alliance leadership and the current threat environment in contributing to Canadian leaders perceptions of national defence requirements and the cost benefit calculus regarding fiscal commitments When the United States federal government provided financial assistance to General Motors and Chrysler in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis the governments of Canada and the Canadian Province of Ontario the only other governments to do so Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Finance Minister James Flaherty argued that Canada s investment to aid these firms was an investment in securing Canadian participation in the global auto industry for years to come In 2015 the Canadian and Ontario governments sold its remaining shares in these companies prompting the question was the Canadian policy successful This study part of a special issue of the American Review of Canadian Studies on the theme The Canadian Economy Model or Muddle will be published in 2016 This paper commissioned by the Fraser Institute in Vancouver BC will set out the current status of IP protection for drug and medical device companies from an international perspective The paper should encompass a discussion of the WTO regarding IP protection as it applies to pharmaceutical and medical device companies as well as the positions taken by the U S Canada and other countries in the ongoing Doha Round of trade negotiations as well as the TPP negotiations The paper will also address the policies of large emerging market economies most notably China and Brazil including their use of TRIPS flexibilities and specific pieces of domestic legislation that permit the production of generic copies of patented drugs by home country domestic manufacturers The implications of such policies of the U S Canadian and Western European drug and medical device companies will be discussed The paper will conclude with a consideration of the implications of the trends in international IP negotiations for Canada s domestic IPR regime which has been challenged by the U S and other developed countries for its similarities to developing
