This Week's Two Security Watch Series

This week, our first Security Watch (SW) series focuses on the so-called genocide taboo; what the Iran nuclear agreement can teach us about dealing with North Korea; the growing international movement against killer robots; the Canadian Army’s complex relationship with “core competencies”; and the 2016 Global Militarization Index. Then, in our second SW series, we look at Turkey’s growing entanglement with terrorism; China’s 2016 Space White Paper; the rural tactics of jihadists operating in the Sahel; the changing nature of warfare in the Middle East and North Africa; and France’s currently pivotal role in Europe.
