University of Toronto G8 Information Centre


G8 and Global Governance Courses

The University of Toronto’s Department of Political Science offers senior-level and graduate seminars on the G8 and global governance.

G8-Related Courses

The University of Toronto’s International Relations Program and the participating departments of Political Science, History and Economics, together with Peace and Conflict Studies, area studies programs and the Master of Arts Collaborative Program in International Relations, offer a wide array of courses relating to the G8.

Field Program

To enhance their in-course studies, students join the Research Group each year to participate voluntarily on site at the annual summit as accredited journalists. Here they conduct research and interviews, gather documentation and witness world politics unfold at the highest level. The G8 Reseach Group Co-ordinator, a student member, directs this program. Members of the Research Group also offer lectures, seminars, courses and workshops in the G8 and other countries.

Speakers Series

The Research Group hosts addresses by such figures as the Honourable Paul Martin, Minister of Finance, Canada; Piero Fassino, Minister of Justice, Italy; Robert Hormats, Goldman Sachs International; Robert Fauver, personal representative of President Clinton to the Summit; and Sir Nicholas Bayne, KCMG, London School of Economics and Political Science.

Robert H. Catherwood Scholarship

In memory of Robert H. Catherwood, editorial page editor of the Financial Post for more than two decades, the Research Group alumni/ae, family, friends and the National Post (formerly the Financial Post) established a scholarship in 1998. Based at Trinity College, it assists University of Toronto students in international relations in their study of the G8.
