The Foundation Papers

In addition to our community members' many publications throughout the year, the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation selects up to five Fellows each year who have contributed to the enhancement of knowledge and the advancement of society through leading-edge research, creative work and commitment to societal debates on major issues of public policy. The Foundation’s substantial financial support enables Fellows to devote themselves more freely to critical thinking and innovative approaches to their work.

The Foundation created the Trudeau Lectures, in the fall of 2008 in order to promote our Fellowships and disseminate key ideas of our Fellows. The Trudeau Lectures are an annual series of public lectures organized in collaboration with Canadian universities. Fellows use these lectures to highlight their ideas, their research and their role as public intellectuals.

The Foundation publishes the text of each cycle of the Trudeau Lectures in The Trudeau Foundation Papers, available in both official languages, in print and online through the Foundation’s website. The publication is available at Foundation events, such as other lectures, the Annual Conference on Public Policy or the Summer Institute. The first volume was released in November 2009 and subsequent editions were published each year until November 2014.
