Canada has over the years given herself relevance through her contributions to the United Nations. Canadian internationalism is often defined as enthusiasm for the UN, and support for the organization remains a constant in Canadian foreign policy regardless of the party in power. Canada, additionally, sees working within the UN as consistent with its values. She considers that finding or building consensus and adhering to the rule of law is important to the idea of good international citizenship. This work aims to lay bare the implications of the absence of Canada at the United Nations Security Council.
