The mission of the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric is to become a national and international leader in individual and collaborative research into the theory and practice of reasoning, argument and argumentation, and rhetoric from the perspective of all related academic disciplines, and a leader in the application and dissemination of this research. CRRAR will collaborate with regional, national and international groups, such as the Ontario Society for the Study of Argumentation (OSSA), the national Network for the Study of Reasoning (NSR) (Canada), the American Forensic Association (AFA) (USA), Association for Informal Logic and Critical Thinking (AILACT)(USA and Canada) and the International Society for the Study of Argumentation (ISSA) (The Netherlands), as well as with the national organizations representing the various scholarly disciplines to which its members belong.
