This week, I had the chance to participate in a DFATD “Fast Talk” where a roomful of individuals at DFATD as well as DFATD personnel around the world has a conversation with experts around the world on a given topic via teleconference. I was one of the four non-Canadians brought into provide ten minutes of thoughts and then participate in a Q&A session. The others were an American, a German and a Pole, all working at elite think thanks. The session was held under Chatham House rules, so I cannot say what anyone said, but I found a good deal of consensus and some disagreements which I think I can report with only my name attached.
